Christmas greetings to all involved in DAO from Middle of Nowhere, Ballybackwards, Ireland. It's snowing!
My niece sent me this comprehensive list of conditions that would be reasons for admission to a Lunatic Asylum in the late 19th Century.
She thought of me when she saw it.....I know I am inclined to have dissipation of the nerves, uterine derangement, brain fever, time of life, women's trouble, occasional gathering in the head and feebleness of mind and much more but I have never been a decoy in the army, shot my daughter or been kicked in the head by a horse.....yet.
A disability is for life, not just for Christmas!
I think I just bought the last 5 boxes of Judsons Gold paint in the whole of Ireland. I have been using Judsons gold since forever as a cheap substitute for gold leaf.
It seems while I was dozing it went out of production. After much searching online and in art shops I discovered these 5 boxes gathering dust in good old fashioned country hardware store.
The precious: it's little things like this that brighten my day.
All I want for Christmas is my smile back right,
my smile back right, my smile back right,
all I want for Christmas is my smile back right
So then I can wish you merry Christmas.
