Where are the Joneses?

It’s a kind of magic.

Posted by Dawn Jones on September 1, 2007

Waiting for Dawn & Ian

Many people ask me what my brother Wim is really like – I tell them this: He’s a magician. Not in a rabbit-in-a-hat/dove-down-your-trousers way – in that he makes the mundane magical.

This morning he noticed I was bilious and handed me milk of magnesia – not in a glass but an ornate fez.

Love & Light,

Dawn x

85: Taste test

Posted by michaeljk on August 31, 2007

A celebrity sibling, well at least in Germany. I still can’t work out if that’s a wink or a tick.

84b: Is that him?

Posted by michaeljk on August 30, 2007

I’m never sure if an isolated car park is the ideal place to meet a stranger.

I Sauce Sense

Posted by Dawn Jones on August 30, 2007

I love sauce. Ask anyone. Last time I did a big shop, I bought pickle. I knew then that condiments would play a key role in my life. I love being proved right.

Love & Light,

Dawn x

White Dwarf Star

Sauce

I’m not sure I could handle being famous, with my face up everywhere and everybody pouring sauce out of it.

At best, I might be able to handle renown, like if I got a role-playing supplement published. Fingers crossed.

84a: Sourcing Wim

Posted by michaeljk on August 30, 2007

If Ian hadn’t have bought those trousers where would we be?

A kind twist of fate – yes, but I’m not sitting next to him in the car if those trousers retain their charge.

Carpe Diem

Posted by Dawn Jones on August 29, 2007

The experience with Bibi has taught me a great deal.

From this day on I will genuinely value and celebrate my freedom.

I will begin by having a facial, a large gateau and watching Braveheart dubbed in German.

Love and light,

Dawn x

Shopworn

Posted by Ian Jones on August 29, 2007

Clothes make the man.

Although ironically most man’s clothes are made by women and children in hot countries nowadays.

Still I find catalogue shopping easy and convenient.

Judgemental

Hohensalzburg

I’ve done many things in my life but I’ve never judged a book by its cover. I hope you won’t either – you’ll miss out on some top reads.

Love & Light,

Dawn x

NB – When I wrote this originally, I meant book as a metaphor for person/stranger. Looking back this is also good advice when taken literally.

Flop Drop

Posted by Ian Jones on August 28, 2007

shoeless

Unbelievable.

Those flip flops have been through a lot. I’ve been wearing them since Paris. I nearly lost one rummaging for cardboard in Bilbao. Carston spilt paella on one. They got all oily on the beach in Termoli. They have run, jumped, clambered and clung to places I never thought I’d even walk in.

I don’t know whether to struggle on with the left one, or let that go as well. It reminds me of my Dad Who Brought Me Up when my Mum died. It looks forlorn and brave and broken all at once.

It seems wrong for them to be apart.

81: Call it fate

Posted by michaeljk on August 26, 2007

My last memory of riding on a ski lift didn’t have a happy ending.
1989 – School trip to the Isle of Wight to see the Needles, I saw it as a perfect opportunity to ask a girl out. When she declined we spent the remaining 15 mins in silence.

Zinken Feeling

Posted by Ian Jones on August 26, 2007

Down the moutain

I’ve been on the funicular railways up Hastings and didn’t enjoy either of them.

But the nice lady said that this (http://www.zinkenstueberl.at) was like sitting in your front room watching a massive 3D TV show about mountains with the sound turned down.

We’ll see.
