I am in the big city of Johannesburg for a whole week! Yeah! I adore the shopping malls. As I have reached the age & stage where I don,t need any more tinkie- tankies in my life I get a great kick out of looking at lovely stuff without having the least desire to buy it. The ultimate freedom.
Another joy in my life today was sitting watching Tangled on T.V. O.K. It is a Walt Disney animated film but I loved every minute of it. So—sue me! The animation was wonderful. All the “baddies” got their just deserts in the end & all the :goodies: got their rewards.It was Happy-Clappy Land but so enjoyable for a simple mind.
Has anyone ever counted how many trees there is in Johannesburg & suburbs? Do you know how lucky we are to have endless trees? It reminded me of that ancient old song “Trees.” If I had R10,00 for every time I played that on the piano to accompany some young hopeful tenor I would be rich. I do remember & agree with the last two lines— Poems were made by fools like me, But only God can make a tree.
I go back home on Sunday morning & I will be happy for ages afterwards as I am having a ball.
Cheers for now from Celtic Granny.
