‘Milo the laser chaser’

What an interesting couple of days in the life of Zoolon.

First of all I’d taken a visit to a pal of mine and his girlfriend who had just moved into a new flat they’d bought. It’s a nice place. Better still, not long after I arrived so did Milo the 8 week old kitten. He’s black & white like my old Border Collie, Skipper was. I bought Milo a present from a pet shop. A laser chaser. He got hooked chasing its images. I like Milo. I want a cat for myself now. I’ve never had a cat before.

I get back home. An article in The Independent newspaper said that the GCHQ (aka M15) secret service were looking to hire dyslexics. Part of what the paper wrote said, ‘The nation’s intelligence services are directly looking to recruit people with dyslexia, the head of GCHQ has confirmed.’ Apparently they like how dyslexics think. That got me thinking ‘that’ll do me nicely’. I’m dyslexic and might end up being the new James Bond; probably the first ever dyslexic James Bond. I hope my first Bond girl hasn’t got a long, complicated name though. Long words are a dyslexics nightmare.

The German language has loads of long words, like;

They’ve got hundreds of words like this one. I wonder how Germans, let alone dyslexic Germans, play Scrabble?

The thing is my mother, in particular, thought I should apply for the MI5 gig. Later on she started to have doubts. She even said, “You’ll never apply, I know what you’re like.” I gave her an all-knowing smile and replied, “How do you know I haven’t?”  You see spies never blow their cover. Maybe my music is just a front?

It might be of interest that after a long layoff Zoolon is now back on SOUNDCLOUD I thought it time to give them another try. I’ll see if they can match people like Bandcamp this time around, plus they represent yet another outlet for my music. Here’s a song from that source. It’s called ‘Hooked’. I hope you enjoy;


On the subject of music. Here’s my  BANDCAMP  link where you will discover my seven albums. Here’s a taster of the two new ones; the backing track ones. I hope you enjoy;

  1. Cats are so fun- and a bit more independent than dogs which helps our busy schedule. The only problem is, it’s hard to get just one…
    Talented musician like you, you might inspire the first (i think?) M15 musical with this new career! 😁

  2. Onr of my favorite memories of my late husband is him and Max, his rat terrier, playing with the laser chaser. They’d do it for what seemed like hours and I’m not sure which one of them enjoyed it more. 😄

    A caveat to you being Bond – you could write your own theme music! 😉😁

    1. Thanks. I’d never thought that a cat could be as interesting as a dog. Having now played games with Milo over a few days I can see I was wrong. The big plus is that a cat would have no trouble climbing the steep stairs up to my home studio in the attic. A cat would stop it being the lonely place it can be when I’m working late into the night. I think it’s on the cards that I’m getting a cat. Thanks again ~ George

  3. That kitten truly is adorable. I’ve always been more of a dog person, but I get the appeal of kittens. 🙂 The entire government could use some new kinds of thinking, so if it starts with the secret service, that sounds fine to me! xxxxx
