Keith Richards is Still Alive


Isn’t he like 165 years old by now?

I look at his face and his wrinkles seem to be placed well.

His wife is cool and she is still there with him.

He wraps a rag around his head and still rocks it.

I, on the other hand, woke up this morning and felt angry at the pain and sad most good friends have left town and pissed off that it takes me two fucking hours to get my two feet into both pant legs instead of one.

Blah, blah blah….

Keith is so in love with playing guitar.

I adore the strange faces he makes in creative reverie.

Making sculptures as I am at the moment with my one good hand has me making faces too..

Thankfully, the frustration turns to laughter pretty quick.

It seems so weird; Keith Richards weird; that I love my life.

I found this new milk substitute called OATLY.

Made from oats!

From Sweden.

With cool packaging.

I bought some as dairy is not my friend.

I ordered it online.

It was terribly good in my morning tea.

I mean- beyond good actually.

Crack cocaine good.

Entertaining to read the box.

Good enough that it gets me out of bed in anticipation.

Now there is no more to be had…


I checked, believe me.

The UK has some.. but shipping…

Can’t get no satisfaction.

    Enjoyed reading this – although I’ll probably pass on the OATLY! As for Keith Richards, there are days when I look in the mirror and feel he could be my son…..

    I loved this too as I adore Keef! ( Dennis, your comment is very funny). Also got quite excited about Oatly as I too am looking for a good milk sub for my tea. How disappointing that it is not available! Maybe it will come back….Thanks as always for being your authentic self. xx

    A rhapsody in blue…..I’ll softly howl along.

    Oops those are little hearts — I’m giggling at your post.

    Love the painting–so apropos, like a pudgy Keith Richards in an oatmeal mask– and so sorry for your difficulties in accomplishing little tasks like dressing that most of us take for granted. Yet somehow you manage to produce delightful and touching essay after essay in meaningful productivity far beyond what might be expected given your limitations. Cathy, I bow to you in awe and respect. May your OATLY supply, from this day forward, never disappoint!
