I am hoping that the choice of todays word for the daily prompt will prove useful as there seem quite a few options for related topics, but I give you fair warning that I cannot guarantee the outcome of this blog will be amusing as I never plan what I shall write, I just throw myself at the subject with reckless abandonment and hope for the best.
How different things might have been in Arizona last week where sadly a woman was killed by an autonomous Uber car, had someone had the foresight to call a warning to the poor soul. “Stop, for God sake don’t walk across the road with your bicycle in front of that computer driven car, the driver is not looking where they are going and the computer is not going to stop the dam thing!” The other warning which prior to this case might have helped would have been to point out to the designers, it’s all well and good using this technology to steer space craft, for although there are quite a number of objects to crash into in space, the fact that they are placed in infinity which is a very large area the odds of hitting something are fairly slim. Perhaps attempting the same trick on crowded roads is one step too far.
Here is a warning from history, do not take part in war, considerable numbers of the population may loose their lives.
Having had World War One where millions died let this be a warning to you should you be thinking of starting number two.
I know that nice Adolf Hitler fellow seems fairly innocuous but I’m warning you he has an ulterior motive, he’s not just going to stop with Poland.
Do not insert that firework up your rectum and film it for YouTube, I’m warning you, it will end in tears.
I have to warn you, it may seem funny, especially when under the influence of alcohol and will surely amuse your friends during the event but jumping from the top of your house with nothing more than an umbrella to slow your decent is not a clever idea.
My last warning for this blog may seem a little controversial, but here goes, if you are not the brightest spark and you wish to breed, do not choose a partner who is one sandwich short of a picnic, for surely your offspring will end up starring on YouTube.
Don’t say you haven’t been warned.
About The Diary of a Country Bumpkin
I am a retired actor, although to be honest I only retired because I wasn't getting any work due to losing my agent when I became a full time carer to my mother who had dementia. and the option of becoming an unemployed actor/waiter at my age was ludicrous, especially as my waiting skills are non-existent.
Having said I’m retired, I don’t think there really is such a thing as a retired actor for I am still available for work, I just don’t have an agent or any connections with regards to obtaining any worthwhile work.
I have over the years done student films when there is nothing else available, always low paid (if at all) the only incentive was always the promised copy of the finished film for your show reel which nine times out of ten always failed to materialise.
I spent many years looking after my aged mother and shortly after her death I was lucky enough to run into an ex-girlfriend of many years ago and our romance blossomed once again, resulting in us getting married in 2013.
My move to the countryside inspired me to write The Diary of a Country Bumpkin which tells of my continuing dilemmas in dealing with the rigors of the countryside from the unexpectedly large number of pollens, fungal moulds and hay products waiting to attack the unsuspecting townie.
I enjoy writing, see my play Dulce Et Decorum Est Pro Patria Mori on The Wireless Theatre Company, The Plays Wot I Wrote and The Battle of Barking Creek both available on Amazon.co.uk and am very fond of classic cars so my ideal occupation would be acting in a film I had written set in the 1930s/40s, we live in hopes.
I am delighted to say that since venturing to the countryside where space is not quite the premium it is in town, I have due to the availability of two double garages acquired more classic cars to form a small collection the pride of which are a 1947 Bentley Mk VI and a 2000 Bentley Arnage.
My various blogs and websites are continually evolving and I’m sure that by following the appropriate links you will find something which will edify or amuse.
I have written a number of different books all available on Amazon, so don't be shy should you feel the urge to purchase. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Mr-Joe-Wells/e/B06XKWFQHT/ref=dp_byline_cont_book_1
