Bobby Ray

Bobby Ray

What will we do for little bobby Ray?

He did as he was told
He carried his bag in the cold
A little figure: he was bold
All the way with the ticket he was sold

Billy Blanks was no longer a lad
But just as always he was sad
A little help: he wouldn’t have been bad
But everyone thought he was a cad

What really happened no one can tell
But Billy Banks should go to hell
For Bobby Ray: they rang the bell
Because the police found a shell

So I shed a tear for Bobby Ray
Oh. He always had a lot to say
Last I saw: he was all over the bay
What a little soul to slay

Billy Banks was put behind bars
He wonโ€™t be stealing any more cars
No one will miss him: send him to Mars
Up in the sky shines Bobby Rayโ€™s stars

Blast from the past: one of the ones that got away

Yeah. I know you were expecting something else.

I was looking for a particular document today and had to wade through several big envelopes. As usual I came across some of the old communications between myself and some companies I had tried to “get into” ๐Ÿ™‚

I am including some scans from the NLNG “attempt” below:

I can still remember the NLNG tests. I scaled the first one in Lagos then “crash ‘n burned” during the second stage test in Abuja.

The envelope the invitation letter came in.

Invitation to the first test above (let’s weed out the chaff eh?)

Second test above (we all now know how it ended ๐Ÿ™‚

There are others of course: Mobil, SHELL, Chevron, …, hey! I have been around ๐Ÿ™‚
