Sorry to break this to you but Sian Jones was never interested in you.

It was something to do with 'that' incident when you answered a school test question, 'For a named area of coast you have studied, explain what is being done to manage coastal erosion', with 'I can't even manage my own erections, let alone coastal erections'. After that, you were persona non grata in the Jones household.

Her mother was a particularly nasty geography teacher.

I remember Mrs J as being a bit shouty, but with a kind heart - unlike the other geography teacher, Mr T*rry. Did you realise at the time that he was in fact a Toad King? I always knew there was something unusual about him but it wasn't until years later that I put all the pieces together: his stubby body with short hind legs; dry warty skin; parotid gland on the back of the head; the jar of flies in his cupboard marked 'snacks'; house backing on to the pond at Crocker End; he would communicate with other toads in the area using a complex system of toad songs and croaks. Did you notice he was always absent from school at the Autumnal and Vernal equinoxes, and wonder why the other teachers having to cover for him would make tut-tut comments about it being his 'bufo bufo time of the year'? Of course, it's all so obvious now - he was preparing for the ancient toad courtship rituals! I'm much more attuned to these things now and I won't be so easily fooled in the future. They walk among us, beware. 

Anyway, back to the original point - great saxophone solos, check this out: www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ti1gbV…

We would upset Mrs. Jones by humming in a low frequency just slightly loud enough so that it would become barely discernible. More and more members of the class would join in. As soon as she became aware of the noise we would drop a couple of micro-decibels and she would start to imagine the noise was in her ears. Then as soon as she put her head down again we would raise the volume to give her another dose of psychological sonic warfare. It was cruel but it paid her back for making us copy out pages and pages of purple rheostated sheep from the Great Lakes of Saskatchewan.

Ah ha, so maybe it was YOU that were a 'particularly nasty' geography pupil; poor Mrs J... We will have to agree to disagree about who was the better geography teacher, and I just have to accept that Mr T just never liked me; curse him and his toad-like ways. 

But I do agree with you in other respects - copying down information from sheets is particularly uninspiring, unlike that pedagogical titan of the history department, Mr P, where every lesson was a journey of exploration, a veritable feast for the mind, and the soul... 

Speaking of which, I do hope your Sunday lunch is coming on, I'm bleedin' starvin'.

Parboiling the potatoes now. You are welcome to join us if you can make it to Norfolk. Rememberance day today and so a bit busy, as a result nothing special. Roast lamb, roast taters, bubble and squeak and onions? Might do some Yorkshires, I know its not beef but they'll still do. A good gravy with port. My open invitation to feed those that know me, generally still stands...with reservations.

Re: Mrs. J - I wasn't easy but she received what she deserved. I cannot recall her ever teaching the class anything, instead just reading a book whilst we copied sheet after sheet of work she created years before.

Re: Mr. P. I have some fine stories. Times with him were perfect examples of the late Gillottonian period. My other half took over from him as an English teacher at Steady Eddie's (St. Edwards) in Reading.

Mr. T*rry was a fine Geography teacher. Trig points were damp places he would hide. The truth is, Mr T*rry's legs were so short he was known as the only man to have turn-ups on his Y-fronts.

An almost perfect song.
The first sax break floored me when I first heard it and it still does today.

Oh yes. Like many things it takes me there.
I play this often, 1978. Ah, Sian Jones... where are you now?

Ah, you see. I was tricking you, you aren't Sian Jones at all - she was Welsh.

You may have fooled me once you, tease you... You ARE awful. But I like you.
