I've received an email from one of my most longstanding blog friends, Clyde Beswick, who used to blog as The Opinionated Old Fart and who is the only person I know with as bawdy sense of humour as our resident, solitary religious, Ellie Finlay.
FYI, after being out of work for almost 2 years I decided to start my own business--an art gallery. Been keeping busy and don't have much time for reading blogs these days but I want you to know that you are in my prayers dear friend.
This is excellent news and you can see exactly what Clyde is up to by visiting the CB1GALLERY WEBSITE.
You might think that as Clyde is now the owner of a posh establishment and rubbing shoulders with the cultural elite of Los Angeles that he will have changed his persona to reflect that of his refined clientele.
Like heck he has!
