    Gotta tell ya!

    I had a nightmare. I have vivid ones caused by my PD medication. Elvis got into my house, I could see his outline clearly on the upstairs hall outside our bedroom (only I wasn't there....I was downstairs at 4am on a swivel chair where I had been drumming on my iPad; ...........don't ask!)

    He turned into a monster and kept digging a gun in my back All he would say....time and again was "Make me some tea....Mutha/F'er........make me some tea Mutha/F'er" and he had a hissing high pitched whinnying laugh. I turned and struggled to get his gun from him when there was an enormous bang and I felt this terrible impact to my face.

    I then found myself dazed and confused and prostrated on the floor of the living room. I had fallen asleep mid drum (Rolling Stones Jumping Jack Flash) and as I slid to the side of the swivel chair it had tipped sideways...then my considerable weight made it swing and tilt forwards and I was ejected to the floor whilst still asleep. The terrible impact was my face hitting the floor. Thank god for quality deep pile Axminster loom!

    The fragrant Mrs T ran down from our bedroom at all the commotion and unsympathetically b*ll*cked me for falling asleep downstairs and then waking her with my crashing and bashing about

    I laughed til I cried and my ribs hurt at the fantastical night I had just had.....and Elvis truly had left the building!

    That's wild Pete - I've just started on PD meds and yes, I've been having wilder dreams.

    Glad no significant harm was done.

    you should be able to figure it out...
    Wow Pete. Drumming yourself into violent unconsciousness to JJF at your age I find highly admirable, but the rest causes me worry for you. OTOH, better to pass out on your living room floor than the streets of Manhattan! Glad things are looking up this morning.

    Do you think Elvis was just jealous of the Stones?

    The closest I had to that was taking Lariam, an anti-malarial drug. Wild, wild dreams. Of course, I was in the Serengeti at the time so it wasn't like I woke up in my own bed either. No Elvis, however. That must come form many years of rock&roll.:smile:

    Hi Ray, I was hoping to come out to NYC next year for a week photo shoot, but my wife doesn't trust me to be there on my own. Having broken a leg back in February after one of three tumbles on a 2mth tour of new zealand, knocking myself unconscious in London after a fall and fainting on a transatlantic flight.....its no wonder!
