I remember when

November 17, 2011

Hello all,
I’ve got so many notes from the many conversations we had over the years. Especially as the blog has attracted a much larger following in the last four weeks, I will write them down properly and post them. Here’s one:

TONY
“You know where I want to go to end my old age?”

PHILIP
“Where? Why are you thinking that?”

TONY
“Don’t tell me that you don’t think about it yourself. Anyway, I’m keeling over when I’m near the ocean if I can and I’ve never seen the ocean in my whole life. So that’s my way to go if you want my opinion.”

I am homeless, I am invincible

April 14, 2011

TONY
“You know, sometimes I think I must be pretty tough.”

PHILIP
“How come not all the time?”

TONY
“I don’t know but I guess I am.”

PHILIP
“You bet you are. I’ll tell you for sure … I can’t imagine me surviving living how you’ve had to live.”

TONY
“I can’t either, if you know what I mean.”

Carpe diem

TONY
“So I guess we’re going to have that election you’ve been talking about a lot.”

PHILIP
“What can I say …  it’s time.”

Time for a change

January 22, 2011

PHILIP
“How’s things?”

TONY
“Someone asked me what I would do if I could change my life yesterday.”

PHILIP
“What did you say?”

TONY
“I thought you would ask me that. Anyway, I told them I needed time to think about it. When it’s one of those big questions like that, you got to give it some time.”

PHILIP
“Sounds like a wise approach to me.”

Retirement planning

January 3, 2011

PHILIP
“Ever thought about retiring?”

TONY
“Are you kidding? All the time.”

TONY
“Phil, what’s this law they’re calling, I think it’s the ‘Law of Attraction’. Have you ever heard about that?”

PHILIP
“That’s totally weird that you would ask me that. Why are you asking me that?”

TONY
“Somebody was talking to me about it just the other day. They said that it about if you really believe you’ll get what you need, then you’ll get it.”

PHILIP
“Sounds right to me.”

TONY
“Well were talking about me getting better from this cancer and and all the other stuff. So he told me about it.”

PHILIP
“Did you know I just added that very same law of attraction to my Facebook profile? Yesterday, Like, just yesterday, believe it or not. That’s too weird a coincidence if you ask me.  Anyway, I was on Facebook yesterday and I posted that I was an atheist but that I also believed in the law of attraction.”

TONY
“Sounds reasonable to me.”

Wasted time

February 25, 2010

TONY
“I think I told you already about that case where I’m being called as a witness. So, I went down to courthouse today and we got remanded to December. There’s a waste of $6 of transit fare. Plus, what a waste of time, if you know what mean.”

One more time

January 27, 2010

PHILIP
“Hey Tony, I gotta tell you, the Liberals are Neck-in-neck with the Conservatives.”

TONY
“Didn’t we tell everyone we weren’t going to do politics anymore?”

PHILIP
“Well how about one more time?”

TONY
“OK, but we’ve got to stick to it. We can’t be telling people if we don’t do it, if you know what I mean. “

Dreams from the grandfather

June 3, 2008

TONY
“Hey Phil, they’re now saying it’s Obama for sure. Somebody was telling me that this is the ‘Obama Revolution’. Never thought I’d see it in my own lifetime.”

Awash in freedom

June 2, 2008

PHILIP
“Hey, new watch?”

TONY
“Yup. Found it at the car wash the other day.”

PHILIP
“What, did someone just drop it on the floor?”

TONY
“No, I found it in the trash.”

PHILIP
“A working watch?”

TONY
“It’s even got one of those green night lights in it. Free too.”
