The Headmasters Study, Part One, True Story, Every Word
dusk arising said:

I was terrified. I thought it was going to be about the the padre and how you got piles.

I can tell you many a tale of injustice at the hands of school teachers. I was dragged all round the country by my parents. It seemed my dad liked to change his job every fifteen months or so and re-locate on each occasion. I was the big new kid all too often. But luckily, having been brought up fighting my three years older brother quite regularly, no kid of my own age could stand up to the fistycuffs i could hand out. My education suffered badly though, no national curriculum back then. I failed my 11 plus and quit school at 15 with no qualifications. I got a job and left home too.

I\'m looking forward to part two of your story.

A fine write Bill.
Do some opt out of R.E. just because they (sneakily) don\'t want to do the subject, or because they truly have no faith?

brilliantly immersive write, has that direct conversational tone of those detailed Robert Browning confessional character portrait\'s,
a wonderfully creative write, a great switch-up from your usual style as well flexing your skills a little, nicely done Sir:

What\'s real, Bill? And does it matter?You experienced it, you experienced her. The memories are there and you\'ve managed to retain them. No different from any other memories now.

All the best, Dave

Thanks for the brief and potent verse on ignorance, fear, hypocrisy and ill-formed opinion. Chimes with some of my own musings.

Such true words Bill, so many complain about things that are good for them only to ruin their lives using things that are bad for them.
Yes where are her kids.

dusk arising said:

So right mate. There are so many people who are not the sharpest tool in the box yet hold firm opinions, especially ones which oppose the \'establishment\'. Sadly, as you point out, they lack the ability to see the dual standards in themselves.
I know one lady who is staunchly far left in political view and regards the U.K. as a right wing society. She chooses top ignore the NHS and state benefits in her appraisal and though she always carries on about everything should be state owned and equally shared out, she was pleased to tell everyone when she finally paid off her mortgage - thereby becoming a capitalist property owner i pointed out..... she wont speak to me these days.

By the way, as the one who posts a piece on here you can, if you wish, delete any individual comment posted by another person. You can also block/prevent a person from commenting upon any of your posts - that has been done to me by a person who\'s continual religious preaching used to attract my criticism.

ANGELA & BRIAN said:

HI UOAP ~ Brian here we are all guilty of *Double Standards* but because of Our Professions (working with People) and as Church Youth Leaders we really do try to be SINGLE MINDED ! The Good Book says *A Double Minded Man is UNSTABLE in all His Ways. Angela & I have great faith in Virology & will be first in the Queue when the VACCINE becomes available for the 30 - 40s ! The LADY you cite is like so so many *Scared of the unknown (C 19 Vaccine) but prepaared to indulge in the *life threatening known* Ciggarettes - Booze - Doddgy Coke & to H*ll with the KIDS. SELF CONTROL is one of the *Fruits of the Spirit* and something we always try to practice ~ especially @ Christmas !

Every Blessing for the Yuletide Season
Love Angela Brian & Smokey ! ! !

insightful commentary,
the disbelief in absurdity emanates from your words potently,
in strange time\'s we have been destined to walk, where costly blood-spilled freedom has been cheapened to match reactionary warped mindset\'s of the
self-involved - entitled, to everything: for merely deigning to exist...
