Why do you have a picture of a naked man touching himself above your fireplace?

Don’t even get me started on all the bottles behind the door.

That ls a picture by Don Bachardy the american artist that was the partner of the writer Christopher Isherwood. Its always turned heads on teams calls. I love it. 
The doors will never open so we went for cabinet in front of them.

You'd be better off storing them all on less shelves so they stand up straight. More likely to warp at that angle. Nice job though. Have you gone for pure alphabetical order?

I need to spend a few hours alphabeticising. Nothing is alphabetical at the moment, the CDs are an even bigger nightmare but less of an issue.

Irritatingly I asked the joiner to put clearance between the shelves so I could have them upright but he didn’t allow for the supports and so some have 10 inches in the space but i need to think about putting them upright. The albums at the far left are the rubbish that my wife thinks is good. Gene bloody Pitney.

Thanks Rob, I was considering posting the same. Not many people know he was a mate of Keith Richards and played piano on the first two Rolling Stones albums.

My mom loved a bit of Pitney so grew up listening to his records a lot. He was cracking and has many great songs in his catalogue.

I have a similar fondness for Matt Monroe and Doctor Hook 😅

luckily there was a lot of Stones and Kinks played too but have never shared my dad’s love of the New Seekers... 😂

I don’t  hate him, he is just one of the people that my wife loves and I am indifferent to him. Its a fairly substantial list.

Yes, I have to agree with all this.

Finally getting noticed as a good employee.

Boss told me today will be getting a 8% raise starting with my next check and also gave me and my assistant gift cards to a local steak house.

Just nice to know that sometimes employers and management do give a ****.

Don't forget to order a side salad with it.

A big one 😉
