Caught On Camera!

    How does the1960’s song go?
They're coming to take me away, Ha-ha
They're coming to take me away, Ho-ho
To the funny farm
Where life is beautiful all the time
And I'll be happy to see those
Nice young men in their clean white coats and
They're coming to take me away, ha-ha!”

   And here’s Number 6, just in time to be taken away to the hospital by three men in white coats, for his medical. Number 6 had previously seen off two bully boys during a fist-fight in the woods. And it seems that Number 6 isn’t ready for another such fight, besides this time he’s out numbered three to one. So perhaps discretion is the better part of valour….this time. What’s more that chap to the left of Number 6’s shoulder is a man giant, who has to squeeze himself behind the wheel in the Mini-Moke!
    Number 6 had been in the woods on his own, watching the Cormorants, and possibly chewing things over in is mind. That his isolation within the community was beginning to get to him. And these three hospital orderlies, what had they been doing lurking in the woods, or had they been just hanging about on the off-chance? No, if it was time for Number 6’s medical, they had been sent to find him! And yet it was Number 6 who found them, or rather stumbled upon them in the bushes!

Be seeing you


  1. Gigantic, David, THAT 1966 song! And all the more fitting because as its creator called himself "Napoleon XIV". Ha, ha! Great laughs! - BCNU!

  2. Hello Arno,
    I knew you would appreciate that. And for those readers who do not know the song here is a link.

    Very best regards
