Over the last week or so I’ve had a number of people question why I haven’t put any editions of this blog out. Well, there were three actually and I have to be honest that one of them was me. So I can hardly claim that public demand ‘forced’ me to put fingers to keyboard!
I’ve intended to write an edition most days but …
I’ve stuck with my normal routine (it worked before so why not just recently?). You know, the early morning period (anytime from 04.30 hours) out on the veranda. Yes, the western, lagoon facing one, with a mug of black, unsweetened coffee. The lazy kind – instant. Just how I like it!
Fully mentally chilled – but not physically with the generally windless, hot and humid days we’ve been experiencing of late- I’ve enjoyed a continuation of my ‘me time’ with breakfast at
All of the necessary ‘ingredients’ to get the creative juices (I, of course, use that term extremely loosely in my case) flowing. But nothing. Writer’s block of the severe kind.
I tried weeding the garden. This mind numbing task normally gets me thinking of loads of stuff just so I’m not thinking of how boring weeding actually is. But this failed to work too.
And then I picked up on the news of the massive event that is taking place this Saturday night when Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather fights Manny Pacquaio for the WBO, WBC and WBA welterweight titles. Huge eh. Two guys putting so much at stake on the result of a boxing match.
Mayweather and Pacquaio ? No, I mean Coconut Leo and Carlo Segura (THE Carlo of Carlo & Ernie’s Runway Bar & Grill). Leo and Carlo have taken betting on a boxing to hair raising heights. Why? Well the loser gets to have his head shaved!
Now with Carlo (he is backing Pacquaio) we will hardly notice the difference. But Coconut Leo!!!! How will he be able to do a rendition of “No woman, No Cry” absent his dreads?
It’s going to ‘lose’ something with a bald Leo. Isn’t it.
Now with Carlo
Who’ll know the difference?
So where is this major event taking place? Well – if you’re interested the Mayweather v Pacquaio fight is being held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, Las Vegas. But the major event of the evening – Coconut Leo v Carlo Segura- is being held at Carlo & Ernie’s Runway Bar & Grill.
Personally I feel that Coconut Leo has put far more at risk than Carlo and I call upon Carlo to offer up his eyebrows as well if he loses. Do you agree? If you do then let your feelings be known on the ‘ Runway’s Facebook page.
Now remember if Mayweather loses then Coconut Leo is in for a dreadlock holiday (yes, I know it’s a terrible link).
The headline for today’s edition is based on the single released in 1978 by 10cc which reached number one on the UK Singles Chart and number forty-four on the US Billboard Hot 100.
