And Through the Square Window by Jack Scott

On Saturday, August 10th, 2013
red-cherry-picker   We live in a quiet city street, a no-through road. The Weaver’s cottage stands alone in a sea of offices and sheltered housing schemes; worker bees and old folk live in perfect harmony. We get footfall but very little traffic. Then one day, the peace was breached by a pincer movement of mechanical cherry ...

‘Life in the Old Blog Yet’ by Jack Scott

On Tuesday, August 6th, 2013
art-of-blogging (1) These days, I think I know a thing or two about this blogging lark but when I started in 2010, I hadn’t a clue. I learned the trade the hard way, through trial and error. It was a trial and there were loads of errors. Mine was a solitary journey. I did quite well for ...

Diary of A Gay Black Man: Goodbye To Forever

On Saturday, August 3rd, 2013
Goodbye to forever Life always takes the time to remind us we don’t have forever. That is why it is so important to love who we are inside because tomorrow won’t remember us if we don’t take the time to smile today. It was a still moment on a simple day. I was a bit grumpy on that ...

‘Art for Art’s Sake’ by Jack Scott

On Tuesday, July 30th, 2013
posters   As well as running a little workshop about blogging (a chat with one man and his dog, no doubt), I’m also exhibiting the Perking the Pansies book at Pride Without Prejudice at the St Margaret’s Church of Art. The gig starts tomorrow and continues for a fortnight. Can my irreverent take on the emigrey soap opera with my ...

Gorillas in Our Midst by Jack Scott

On Thursday, July 25th, 2013
gorillas   We got back from holiday to face an invasion of psychedelic gorillas. I thought someone had slipped some acid in my gin and I was tripping the light fantastic. Don’t fret, I haven’t taken to class A drugs and mugging old Norfolk broads to feed a nasty habit. Not yet anyway. Looking like the ...

Clang, Clang, Clang Went the Trolley by Jack Scott

On Wednesday, July 17th, 2013
palma-2013-151 With hours to kill before our night flight back to Blighty, we plumped for a day trip to Sóller and its coastal sister, Porto Sóller on the north side of Mallorca. The touristy thing to do is ride the antique tren that runs from Palma railway station so that’s exactly what we did. The vintage ...

Fawlty Towers by Jack Scott

On Sunday, July 7th, 2013
palma-panorama Following our fright flight, we arrived at the Hotel Costa Azul in Palma at 2am. Our smart room was a little on the bijou side but we were tired and thought little of it. The next morning we awoke to a rotating mechanical clunk and the sound of persistent banging. Liam leapt out of bed ...

From Little Acorns… by Jack Scott

On Saturday, July 6th, 2013
VLUU L200  / Samsung L200 Once upon a time in another life,  this seasoned old cynic met and fell for a handsome young man with razor-sharp wit and a glorious smile. His name was John. We collided in a long-gone dive in Earls Court called the Copacabana. He stayed the night and never left. Eight years in to our fine ...

Pillow Talk by Jack Scott

On Thursday, May 30th, 2013
pillow-talk I’m struggling just a little to give up the dreaded weed (okay, I’m struggling a lot). Most of the time I bear my cross with the help of nicotine patches as my tobacco crutches. But, an evening on the Devil’s brew at the local ale house invariably sees me falling off the wagon: a relapse ...

Attack of the Norovirus by Jack Scott

On Saturday, May 11th, 2013
FLR-040 NoroVirus Poster FINAL RGB.qxp The schools are off and a sparkling (but still chilly) early spring day brought the north folk of Norfolk out of hibernation to swarm around the lanes of Norwich in search of a bargain (and there are bargains galore to be had). I watched the throng from a kerbside café. I was out alone in ...
