Hello there, my friends.

We all have a story to tell, don’t we? Something that is more often than not so embarrassing that we dare not mention, but we still do. It may not be funny at the time, but time heals all wounds apparently? Then there are those that are just too good not to share.

Here’s something that happened to me a couple of years ago. 
We, Kyrbgrinder that is, were doing some shows in Holland and a very nice lady who shall remain anonymous was kind enough to let us stay at her place. Now, this lady has a cat whom I must say is a little territorial and didn’t really take a liking to me as he tended to leave his fur in places that not even God has seen. So one morning in my bleary eyed stupor I wandered into the kitchen and helped myself to some muesli and yoghurt. I took a bowl from the draining board and poured away, there I was happily munching and then along came the lady of the house, she looked on in horror as did the cat and asked me, “Why are you eating from the cat’s bowl?” Oops! Now that is an awful mess to get into as I’m a vegan and cat’s bowls tend to have raw meat in them! AAAGGGGHHHHH!!! There were so many other beautiful vessels I could have used but no, I had to use the cat’s bowl. I found it funny and so did the lady of the house. The cat? Well that’s another story!

So in future my friends, if you ever decide that you don’t wish to make the same mistake, I advise you to be mindful, or at least go to Specsavers.

Thanks for listening.
