Word reaches us via Twitter that George McKane of this parish and a true Blue of the highest order is on the mend after finishing a course of radiotherapy.
I just wanted to wish him the very best for a speedy and full recovery and to offer ToffeeWebbers the opportunity to send some cosmic vibes his way as well.

On Wednesday last I was at Clatterbridge for (hopefully) my last Treatment - - I went with my daughters and then straight onto the game at Goodison - - we have that - - the desire to be part of Everton and nothing - - nothing - - is going to stop us - - that's us Evertonians.
When we were in a mess in the early days of Kendall I wrote to him and gave him so "posso waves" - - he invited me to Bellefield and asked me to "meet" the players - - clever man Kendall - - would never happen now - - this Club needs to "talk and listen" to the fans - - not The Fans forum.
On Wednesday I wrote a piece of prose - - printed and handed it to "the men" at Clatterbridge - - copied below:
"The men sit and wait
Partners and friends alongside
Tired and quiet.
Silence hangs in the air
Nods and half winks acknowledging each others fate.
We stand one by one
Clutching our plastic fountain in clenched fist
Walk slowly into the cubicle
We smile secretly and knowingly
Aware of what is about to happen.
It is unmentioned.
Back to our seats
Ready to drink the three cups of everlasting water from plastic cups
As if from The Grail Chalice.
Our name is called.
We step through the radioactive barrier with a slight nod
Minutes on a marble table
Raised to the machine
The green beam
Cleanses our body
We are ready to go home.
George Mc Kane.
Cosmic grooves all the way from my mended heart.

Here's me hoping you'll post soon and you're in the middle of typing one... and what a gem it was.
Beautiful and moving.

Welcome back, George, and may your health continue to improve.

I remember the tale you told about Kendall, who told you it was no point in just giving the players loads because they would just stop listening, and I think you possibly learned a great lesson in life that day?
I feel the same now, I think we have got to give Silva time, but once the masses start screaming, then only a real belief in the the manager, is going to keep him in his job, so who knows whats going to happen next?
Anyway the treatment hasnt affected your brain George, because that was a fantastic poem, especially because your personality shines right through it mate..!
Good luck is all you need George, whilst Silva, needs a few with your spirit, if things are going to get better for him... so Ill pray for you both tonight.

Like Mc Murphy - - - "I am a goddam wonder of modern science."

Great news that you are on the road to recovery.
Your lyrics have been sorely missed at a time when ToffeeWebbers all needed their spirits lifted and you certainly do that.
I hope you now send some cosmic grooves to the corridors of power and dressing rooms at GP.
Best wishes for a full recovery.

God looks after Cardinal Godfrey lads!
One plus of missing recent games is that you've saved a few bob on your 4-0 bets!!!
22 Posted 10/02/2019 at 22:40:52
All the best for a continuing and speedy recovery. Let's hope our team and manager can recover as well.

To be honest, its the only thing I can think of which elicits envy in me too far on this side of the foam where theres a will theres not always a way one game every 2 years a ritual does not make.
How much you appreciate life and its blue meaning is very much evident in your musings. Please keep them coming and many a season to you.

And Alan J #6, amen. It's been three years to the day for me. The romantics amongst us will opine that the most beautiful word in the English language is love, or trust, or faith, or dream... but you and I know it's "remission".
36 Posted 15/02/2019 at 21:39:00
Cosmic vibes George, cosmic vibes.
Be well. Recover. Pen a mystic Blue-vibe post soon. They're gold.
I read somewhere, I believe, that you write your thoughts without the assistance of any mind-altering substance. I would have sworn it was mushrooms. ;0)
You've a beautiful mind George. Take care of it and yourself.
37 Posted 16/02/2019 at 10:29:18
Best wishes for a full recovery.

The last two sentences of your first paragraph made me smile as owing to the radiotherapy etc I've lost some use of my right arm and have no saliva glands. If I drink before bed I have to get up at some time through the night for the 'loo and if I don't I have to get up for a drink. I sometimes think this causes somebody else somewhere to have a little smile as well.

Keep up the good work pal and all the best in your undoubted recovery.
