good 'ol spike
Treasures are found in the strangest places. My daughter's swim group had a table with a lot of books sitting on it.... taking the lead I gathered they were complimentary for people to take one or two or even three. So I took four. This is one of said collection. Very happy indeed.
"The Compulsive Spike Milligan" was sitting there and I have not read a lot of his works but this was a great find.
Here is just one of his gems...
This evening in the twilights' gloom
A butterfly flew in my room
Oh what beauty, oh what grace
Who needs visitors from out of space?
(from 1984, Spike's bedroom in Monkenhurst)
'til next time, enjoy spike more often. xop
