** They might not have sharp claws but those walking sticks and Zimmer frames can be lethal when Edith, Ethel, Reggie, Stan and co ... wield them in anger.
One quick phone call to mention the unmentionable and I was on my way to pick up a sample bottle left at reception. No instructions on how to use it though - are you meant to hover over it and:-

c. Bob a job (no Scouts required)
Down to the wire
After a number of years of trying I finally managed to get Mrs B and the critically-acclaimed cop show “The Wire” in the same room. My triumph lasted less than 15 minutes, however, as she declared, after an opening salvo of language that would make a docker blush , “There is too much f#ck#ng swearing and it’s having a bad influence on me.” .....Point taken Mrs B. Now where did I put that box set of Bagpuss....?
Snow Patrol 1
As we had snow last week I took the opportunity to take The Beast out fox-hunting. Some of you might remember the photos I got a few years back of the fox running up and down our road. After trailing around the local streets for around half an hour,yes; with not a sign of my vulpine friend, I returned home to discover in my absence he had left foot prints across our drive way, just meters from our front door. Now that’s just not playing fair ....
Guilty of maliciously leaving
foot prints in the snow....
Taken with The Beast
- The pay for your funeral now and die later plan....
- When there is blame you should make a claim....
Who do they think they are going to sue?....themselves???
As for Snow Patrol, while I doubt they will be many people’s absolute favourite group, except perhaps aging Goths (they have a tendency to stray to the morose), they have built up a decent back catalogue. They also have a wonderful ability to build those sad songs up from a slow start into punchy anthems . Gary Lightbody, while not the most stunning of frontmen, is entertaining and has a good repartee with the audience.
Watch of the week
The regular section in support of Joe (Stunt Cock) and his growing watch business Xupes. Joe mentioned that they had been getting a number of hits via the BlackLOG.
Xupes has been trading for over 2 years and Joe has recently developed some great contacts in the trade which enables him to pick up surplus stock and sell them at great prices. Mrs B is a regular purchaser from his jewellery section, going self service once she finally realised that her husband is not the jewellery buying type…
