Well, there was one about four haddock, a knitting machine and Penny from The Big Bang Theory....

There's only one Viking in my dream. And it's the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

I didn't know the bridge was a Viking.

Also, the image of Roger pulling up his knees and performing a horizontal cannon ball is hilarious. Are there any other dreams you both want to make public? I have popcorn ready.  ;D

Great to know I’m not alone, Roger. Your take-off sounds different to mine. I’ll have to give yours a try. 

I bet you have that other dream too, don’t you? You know - the one where you’re proper flying, armed to the teeth with swords, knives, and other assorted metalwork, and battling against hordes of vicious winged, bearded Vikings high in the air between the Forth Road and Rail Bridges, just you against hundreds of them, until you’re the only one left standing...I mean flying. It’s a bit less peaceful than the other one, but still a cracker, eh? Wouldn’t you say?....Roger?

Steve, I've had that identical dream many times. It's almost as though I take off gently for a long jump and then just keep on going, a few inches above the ground. By raising my knees a little, I can prolong the flight indefinitely. It's a great dream---must be a cartoonist thing!

Deep down, I still believe I can fly. But it's not the sort of thing one goes around telling people.

But wasn't there that misty morning . . .

Indeed there was, but I failed at that attempt also. What Mincey is referring to was a particularly vivid dream I had in my late teens, in which I was levitating several inches above the grass, propelling myself gently forward on the first fairway of my local golf course in the park just across the road from the house where I grew up (or didn't, as the case may be). It was an extraordinarily wonderful and peaceful dream, and I was deeply disappointed to wake up from it. I tried to fall back into it, but to no avail, so I got dressed in the early hours as dawn was breaking, sneaked out of the house, and made my way across the park to that first tee. It was misty, just like in the dream.

I concentrated with all my might, but my feet never left the ground, as I walked the full length of the fairway, hoping that at any second I'd be walking in the air...floating in the moonlit sky. Nada. Zilch!

I just didn't believe enough. Mincey has no soul.  :\

It was a book that convinced me I could fly when I first read it several decades ago as a young man (I never succeeded, oddly enough)

But wasn't there that misty morning . . .

Diane, I haven't read any of the #1 Ladies Detective Agency books but I hear they're excellent. I DID read one of his other books (It may have been "44 Scotland Street" and I thoroughly enjoyed it).
Steve, I understand where you're coming from regarding books. There are times when I simply don't have the patience, energy or interest to commit myself to the entire story. On the other hand, there are times when I am completely captivated and can't wait to lose myself in the story-telling---the sign of great writing. For me, finding a wonderful book is one of the great joys in life.
I'm a Dundee United supporter. I need escapism.
