I keep on bumping into that busker round town, the latin american looking one, playing classical spanish guitar. just lovely

puts me in mind of the fact that John Williams the classical guitarist, think cavatina, think the deer hunter, the hamlet cigar advert, well him, he was raised by wild and wooly monkeys on the rugged rocks of the cornish coast!
… kinda
his dad set up the Looe Monkey Sanctuary in cornwall, which rescued monkeys, it’s a great place right on the edge of the cliffs
when we visited a few years back the colony was dying out, thankfully people are much kinder to monkeys nowadays.
and 90% of the monkeys left were useless blokes, was much like being amongst programmers

MelanchololoIic! I like to think tho’ of the young John Williams practicing his oh so, so sad spanish guitar, surrounded by a bunch of mournful, lachrymose monkeys

oh and how he looked back in 1978, i do like the t-shirt over a big collared shirt look, i shall be modelling such next week
the lp is seemingly called something ponce!
(what ? who? was ponce de leon? I have no idea)

i just wikipedia’d juan ponce de leon

he was a very interesting fellow!

‘As a young man he joined the war to conquer Granada, the last Moorish state on the Iberian peninsula. Ponce de León accompanied Christopher Columbus on his second voyage to the New World. He became the first Governor of Puerto Rico by appointment of the Spanish Crown.’

apparently also
Ponce de León was looking for the waters of Bimini to cure his sexual impotence, when he discovered the fountain of youth and also by accident Florida, the name of which means ‘Flowery’
