My Neighbour the Obsessive Car Detailer.

Who knew I had a celebrity for a neighbour? Certainly not me. Well yesterday as I was taking Ruby on her afternoon walk I saw Martin cleaning his car, and as usual he was filming what he was doing. Well I have seen him filming and talking to his camera before.

Yesterday curiosity got the better of me and I asked him if he had a YouTube channel…… Yes he does and it is really brilliant. The funniest thing was he was wearing a hoody bearing the name of his vlog. Yes emblazoned across his chest are the words Obsessive Car Detailer. Here is one of his posts.

I love the intro to each video very atmosphereic.

Well Martin is a gentleman with more than one string to his bow and more than two vehicles to his drive…..yes he’s not all about being an Obsessive Car Detailer he is also a delightful children’s book author. Martin has written four books delicated to his Grandchildren, Finley,Lily and Susie.

You can buy Martin Harman books at Amazon in Kindle or hardback, the covers have been updated since these copies above.

Right now I can definitely recommend the books I am reading them at the moment.

Most of us have a Nanny and Grandad, but do we really know what they get up to when they go out by themselves?
Some are more adventurous than others! The question is, how long can they stay out of trouble? There is only one way to find out.

Yes, read the books!

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Feb. 26, 2022

It’s Saturday again and time for Linda to give us our prompt for SoCs, she says: Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “rest.” Use it any way you like. Enjoy!

.

As I sit here in my quiet kitchen, in my quiet house in a quiet road pondering what’s happening in Europe. I didn’t get much rest last night but at least I have my own roof over my head and there are no Russian tanks or bombs or troops out side my door. Unlike the people of Ukraine who have had no rest or quiet since Putin decided to invade.

I, like the rest of world hold my breath as we appear to be on the edge of war. Putin waited his moment, he waited until the China Winter Olympics were over to invade, his troops had been on “manoeuvres” on the Russian/Ukraine boarders.

It all came home to me the other day when our eldest son rang me, his first words were, “Hi Mum, I went to bed normally and woke up to war” I agreed with him this is a serious situation.

Personally I thought we had put the dogs of war to rest but in all honesty the ghosts of war never rest. They lie in wait for a mad, bad, evil, dictator and then they slip their leash. Sadly another, who we have known of for years finally crossed the line and crossed the boarders.

Hidden in basements, underground carpark and train stations with their children, dogs and cats, forced out of their homes…no rest for them. Quques of people walking and driving to cross the boarders of their home country no rest for them. Quques of men young and old and in-between waiting to sign up to defend their country. Many of these men have never seen or had any training for war many will holding a weapon for the first time. No rest to for them.

I cannot rest watching videos of the people of the Ukraine telling us their stories and asking why they have received no help or support, no troops from NATO or the U.S. coming to their aid. I do understand that any movement to assist the Ukraine will be the excuse Putin wants to declare war on the rest of us.

So many times throughout history this has happened not least in Europe but all over the world. ‘It only takes a few good men to do nothing for evil to prevail ‘ a slight miss quote on what Edmund Burke said but it is true.

I shall rest my case here and though I try not to mention political subjects but my conscience will not let me rest.
