hi Les, it just came in my head one day while on my PC, took all of 5 minutes to think of it, got to be in the right mood, maybe i try again, so many photos still to upload, used to write a lot of poetry on watch in the boiler room to pass the time when steaming. regards, Tony.

OH THAT LOVELY DOXFORD
SUCH SILENT MASSIVE POWER,
WAS BUILT SO WELL AND STRONG,
RUNS HOUR AFTER HOUR AFTER HOUR


OH THAT LOVELY DOXFORD
UP AND DOWN THE PISTONS GO,
A STEADY THROB ALL DAY LONG
SOMETIMES FAST, SOMETIME SLOW


OH THAT LOVELY DOXFORD
SEAS ROUGH OR SMOOTH NEVER DID COMPLAIN
THAT STEADY BEAT ALL DAY LONG
COULD TAKE U FAR AND GET YOU HOME AGAIN

hi Brian, its a long sad story how i got here, mainly because of acute loneliness and sheer desperation, hated the way the UK is going, more so now how the Disabled and PENSIONERS ARE BEING VICTIMISED, The worst Goverment in my lifetime. my pension worth less every month, high VAT, TV Licence, Council Tax, hIGH Heating Bills, Food prices going up,the cold wet weather, just had enough,basically was just waiting to die alone there, i though there must be a better life even for me at 73, i knew Annie for 2 years on the net befor i came, talked on Skype every day, sold my car and a few bits booked my ticket and here i am, it was a gamble, was more than a bit scared, a strange country, a girl i only knew on the Net, my knees were knocking when the plane finally landed at Cebu, untill i saw Annie waiting for me, then i was OK, 9 Months here now, should have come years ago,impossible to be lonely here, such wonderful friendly caring people, and most so poor. and my Annie is the best. no rip offs here,so cheap to live good,i could use Taxis all day every day and not worry about the cost,[img][/ig] Annie and me having a beach BAR B Q

MAYBE BECAUSE THEY WERE MY FAVOURITE ENGINE AT SEA. STRANGE HOW YOUR MIND WORKS. MAYBE MORE TO COME. WILL TRY NOT TO BE BORING.

WATCHKEEPING
was ashore in sunny Spain
in Valencia sat in a cosy Bar
subs all spent in Portugal
bars of soap would take you far,,,,


A Senorita so nice and slim,
sat next to me and spoke,
Asked if i wanted to go home,
Had to tell her i was broke,.....


She said my watch would be OK,
So off we go to her bed,
In the morning i wake at six,
She still sleeps her pretty head,,,,,,


Without thinking i take my watch,
my head in a state from Rum,
my ship i rush to board
then it hits me what i done,,,,,,,,



When i check my watch for time,
i feel sorry and so sad,
i take that poor girls watch,
it was so very very bad ! !

this is a true story mv wanstead valencia 1961
