So they say it's the hottest day of the year and magically it has coincided with the worst hayfever day of the year. Yea I know I'm a brave boy, having survived all that the wasps can throw at me hayfever is back to get me! Decided to walk to work as it was such a beautiful day but the writing was on the wall, I started sneezing within 2 minutes of leaving the house and I swear I haven't stopped all day. Usually the antihistamines do the job but today I reckon I have sneezed about a gallon of stuff from my head. There must be a doctor out there...where does all that shit come from? I mean if my head was really full of that much liquid I'd fall over so it's coming from somewhere. Thank the Lord who ever he is that I only work 4 hours as I was able to rush home and lock myself in a darkened room until it eased!
You think me moan is over don't you? Saw the weather on the TV who have said despite the warm day rain is on the way.....so as we are off to Crete in a few days I knew the damn grass needed doing so out I go into it again...Jesus! Thank God Crete will be advanced of the UK weather wise and hayfever will have passed for me there. I trying to deal with it tonight with booze..that will work won't it?

You want more dereliction? Not sure why I'm asking as you're getting it regardless. One of a number of shots I took in the village of adrianos (Αδριανός) a beautiful little village that I had visited on a number of occasions but not with derelict interiors in mind. So you can imagine my delight when I found a long line of small houses all begging to be shot and preserved for ever. It is one of those villages that is on a road to nowhere so no tourist will ever go there. It was like a beautiful time capsule and the looks form the locals matched! I am prepared to show you where it is but if you share the information I will have to kill you. You have been warned...but having warned you I find that there is no aerial photo! So you will have to take my word for it that adrianos (Αδριανός) does in fact exist!

School is out and its a sort of a buzz
A back then I didn't really know what it was
But now I see what have of this
The way that people respond to summer madness
The weather is hot and girls are dressing less
And checking out the fellas to tell em whos best
Riding around in your jeep or your benzos
Or in your nissan stting on lorenzos
Back in philly we be ou in the park
A place called the plateau is where everybody goes
Guys out hunting and girls doing likewise
Honking at the honey in front of you with the light eyes
She turn around to see what you beeping at
Its like the summers a natural afradesiac
And with a pen and pad I compose this rhyme
To hit you and get you equipped for the summer time

Its late in the day and I ain't been on the court yet
Hustle to the mall to get me a short set
Yeah I got on sneaks but I need a new pair
Cause basketball courts in the summer got girls there
The temperatures about 88
Hop in the water plug just for old times sake
Break to ya crib change your clothes once more
Cause you're invited to a barbecue that's starting at 4
Sitting with your friends cause yall reminisce
About the days growing up and the first person you kiss
And as I think back makes me wonder how
The smell from a grill could spark up nostalgia
All the kids playing out front
Little boys messin round with the girls playing double-dutch
While the djs spinning a tune as the old folks dance at your family
Reunion
Then six o'clock rolls around
You just finished wiping your car down
Its time to cruise so you head to the summertime hangout
It looks like a car show
Everybody come lookin real fine
Fresh from the barber shop or fly from the beauty salon
Every moment frontin and maxin
Chillin in the car they spent all day waxin
Leanin to the side but you cant sped through
Two miles an hour so everybody sees you
There's an air of love and of happiness
And this is the fresh princes new definition of summer madness
