To Dinesh - My Brother

I used to record my 'inventions' in a diary - until Dinesh one day got hold of it and laughed at me. I believe it was regarding one of my more inane imaginations entitled 'Blinker'. A simple rotating can with strips of insulating tape demarcating the live areas. This was to make a filament lamp blink. I believe the same could have then been achieved with a circuit that would've fitted on the head of a pin. But I did not know better.

But hey!! It was MY invention and you laughed at me!!!

Anyways, from the ashes rises a phoenix etc. etc.

I have bigger and better inventions now. But alas no diary for you to peruse and laugh at!!!

Just you wait Mr. Higgins - Just you wait!!!!

Ah! what joy! A mention on your blog.

Yes, I have fond memories of the 'Blinker'. And for the record I only teased you because you got pissed off but I understand now that you got hurt as well...

And so I apoligize, but I must confess that it still brings a smile to my face.

This is for you:

A laugh
A few tears
A box on your ears

A chipped tooth
A big ball
- Or two? Can't recall

But Of this I am sure
And I'll make this quite clear
I love you - little brother dear

You'll have to explain the second verse to Lynda if she reads this.
