BRIAN & ANGELA

WHAT LUXURY WOULD YOU TAKE TO A DESERT ISLAND ?




GUITAR ~ AMPLIFIER ~ MUSIC ~ BRIANSODES
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I'd love to be a GUITARIST
If I was marooned on an Island
I'd like a FENDER & a Solar Amplifier
Lots of Sheet Music ~ so I could practise
And sing and become another Brian May ~ OK
Because I would be alone ~ NOISE would
NOT be a Problem ! So I could PLAY
My GUITAR and SING ~ Night &
DAY and be a VIRTUOSO !
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Thanks for visiting ~ Please add your LUXURY


I think I would take is a pen and paper,
So that I could continue writing my poetry.
So that I could inspire others when I get rescued.
You will have the fender guitar and I will have paper,so we could write music together.


A SOLAR POWERED MICROWAVE OVEN ~ ANGELA
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I'll have to eat
I don't like raw food
Wood fires are difficult
So I would like a MICROWAVE !
I have studied Nutrition
So I know edibility
So I'll survive
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Thanks for reading, please add your LUXURY


Its a good thing we will have Angela's solar powered microwave,
becuse i was also thinking of a fire starter,so that we would have warmth,not that i know how to use it,but we could figure it out.


What would be considered a luxury?
For most people,
I do not know what it would be.
For me,
I would probably,
bring my phone of course,
and perhaps a deck of cards,
in case I get board.
Last I would probably,
bring with me a pocket bible.
That would be my main key,
to survival.
Everything else,
I would probably put together,
as long as there,
is no bad weather.


TEN MORE LUXURIES FOR THE ISLAND ~ BRIANSODES
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
TEN sleeping bags to keep us warm
NINE hammocks to sling between the trees
EIGHT gallons of COKE ~ just for a JOKE
SEVEN Wind Breakers in case there's a breeze
SIX cases of BEANS for breakfast & dinner
FIVE cooking pots for making stew
FOUR sacks of SUGAR ~ now thats a Winner
THREE sacks of Porridge ~ Och Aye the Noo !
TWO Sailing Dinghies ~ for catching FISH
ONE HAGGIS fer Hogmany ~ Thats ma wish !


Well we will need transportation,so let's bring four beautiful horses,
They can help us collect firewood of courses.
Oh and let's take some chickens too,
We will need eggs,and some fun pets for me and for you.
Let us gather and be merry,
Maybe we can be together,when Brian and Angela marry.
Whatever else,I just don't know,
Back to you the fusion,I will throw.


One thing I would bring,
if I was stranded,
on a deserted island,
that demanded,
would definately be,
to bring a solar powered blender,
so I could make,
refreshing smoothies.
Cool Kiwi,
or Berry Baby,
anything I am making,
is what I am naming.


DRINKA ~ PINTA ~ MILKA ~ DAY ~ BRIANSODES
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
MILK is rich in PROTEIN
MILK is rich in CALCIUM
The finest food I've ever scene
You even get it from your MUM
So on our DESERT ISLAND
With SAND as smooth as silk
The one thing we would all demand
Our DAILY PINTA MILK !
I've told you why ~ I'll tell you how
MY LUXURY would be a COW
And for Her to live Her ~ life to the FULL
And have some CALVES ~ I'd also bring a BULL
To build a BARN and MILKING SHED
An AXE and a SAW ~ and a Roof overhead !
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Thanks for visiting ~ MORE LUXURIES PLEASE !
Only SIX slots left ~ make sure you don't miss out.


I would take my Dragon,
very useful he would be.
Lighting fires or catching fish for my tea.
Last thing at night, I would cuddle by his side,
when the storms came, behind him I would hide.
If pirates attacked a tasty snack they would make,
several parts of them would I convert into steak!
The best thing about my dragon,
I'm sure you will agree,
if it gets to tiresome,
he'll fly me home....for my tea.


NO GASOLINE ~ NO MAINS ELECTRIC ~ NO "GAS" ~ BUT
WE'VE GOT WOOD & SOLAR & WIND ~ AMEN ~ ANGELA
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
NOW LETS TAKE STOCK WHAT WE ALL GOT ~ KO (Kia Ora)
HORSES for transport ~ COWS for MILK & CHEESE
A DRAGON to start our ~ fire each morning
I want a SPANISH / FLAMENCO Guitar for dancing
We've got NOTE BOOKS and pencils for writing
Lots of SOLAR POWERED GISMOS & GADGETS
Tools for chopping & sawing wood ~ we want
Hammers and lots of Nails ~ Screwdrivers / screwa
Boats to fish with (but not to escape)
Lots of CD's (and a player) and lots of books
Sounds like Heaven ~ hope no one find us !
Still a few spaces left (15 MAX) if you add
a LUXURY ~ you can come with us PROMISE !
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Thanks for reading please post your POEM ~ ANGELA XOX


After a mango smoothie,
or after a weird meal to eat,
I think using,
a port-a-potty and toilet paper,
is better than bushes and leaves.
Whether I go,
number one or number two,
I would need,
a top of the line air filter,
to release the hot air,
and all the fumes.


IN THE UK & USA ~ TOILETS ARE TAKEN FOR GRANTED ~ OK BRIAN & ANGELA
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~When ever we go camping
In true Backwoodsman style
We're always keen on HYGIENE
Our efforts make me smile
Everything's wrapped in Polythene
To keep it cool to keep it clean
We check for microbes & for bugs
We carry anti berri berri drugs !
Our pans are scrubbed ~
You can see your face
And SAM & ELLA have no place
Our cooking Tent clean & pristinne
An never a MICROBE can be seen.
You may well ask what do we do
With NUMBER ONE & NUMBER TWO ?
How do we dispose of it
The daily output ~ PEE & S * * T
The answer lies in a VERY DEEP PIT
Dig it far away for COOKING & EATING
Quarantine from excrement we're seeking !
Dig it at least a six foot deep
Cover with planks lest some poor creep
Should fall in walking in his sleep !
Then do what Great Grandparents do
Use a chamber pot to POOOOOOOOOOOOOO
Then in the morning ~ DOWN THE PIT
GER RID OF ALL THE PEE & S * * T
Cover up with fresh dug soil
No smell ~ no bugs & no germs to spoil .....
Our DESERT ISLAND ~ One & All ~ AMEN
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Only TWO MORE SIZZLING STANZAS LEFT
Grab your hot slot don't be BEREFT ~ &
Don't be cryin' LOVE ANGELA & BRIAN XOX


On a desert Island shore
the luxury I'd ask for:
.
A luxury yacht with it's hold well stocked
with enough food and booze for the home going cruise.
(Michael Edwards)


And a place where we can worship our Lord,
Maybe some kind of games so we wouldn't be bored.
I think a portable shower,would be awfully nice,
With a solar water heater,so we wouldn't have to bathe in water as cold as ice.
And some good books to read,
I cannot think of anything else that we need.

    Thanks to everyone who contributed ~ it makes very interesting reading. MIKE'S Luxury Yacht would be an asset for exploring neighbouring Islands and taking anyone home who got Island Sickness ~ We could have a rota for Sea Trips ~ there is a fully functional Kitchen and eight Berths. Melissa (Miss Froggy) has made several contributions ~ but in the very last STANZA ~ she Suggests A Church ~ A Solar powered Shower ~ Games ~ A Solar Powered Water Heater ~ Good Books ~ She wants us to be CLEANSED ~ Inside & Out ! It's not too late to add a POEM as a COMMENT ~ Two Willing Castaways BRIAN & ANGELA XXXX

    Thank you Brian.

    That was delightful.

    At this stage I would take a copy of Jane Eyre and a copy of these soundtracks:
    Kiss on my List - Hall and Oates.
    Ashes to Ashes - David Bowie
    Rapture - Blondie
    Heart of Glass - Blondie.
    Cold - Annie Lennox
    Little Bird - Annie Lennox.

    I still will have to work out my definitive Desert Island list.

    FineB
