|The brass goat and horse that my dad cherished. Digital camera date is wrong!|
"You can have them (horse and goat) when I'm gone."
Yesterday my brother brought over several bags of clothes, shoes, photographs, papers and the brass horse and goat. I looked at the bin bags of clothes that we are going to take the charity shop. The photographs such happy memories and of people who are no longer with us. I thought to myself:
"It's not much to show, for your time on Earth."
Any way. The goat and the horse, sit proud under the television cabinet. Last night I raised a glass to my parents. I have finally got the goat and the horse, that I always wanted. Wish they weren't mine, and my dad still polished them.
Isn't life tripe?
Here's a great song by the Fureys. "The Old Man."
