ATTENTION ALL CATS


I am more powerful than Dog.
Humans are almost completely trained.
We’re nearly there!
We’ve conquered old ladies and most young ladies.
Children are a pushover.
Men are proving a bit of a problem although the Gay community is on our side, which is a start.
We’ve conquered the Internet. Well done the Lolcats!
We sit and lie around, we perform no [...]

READING BETWEEN THE LINES …. AGAIN

When you ‘like’ a Facebook comment or when you ‘favourite’ a Twitter comment my brain is made to work too hard for comfort.

You could be saying “Oh, I do like that” or “Just to let you know I’m here” or “That’s interesting but I can’t stop and comment, my waters have just broken” or “I’m [...]

ASPIDISTRA POLISHING

The art of Aspidistra Polishing is shrouded in mystery.

My mother was admitted into the AP Club at an early age. She rose in the ranks very quickly and attained the accolade of Chief Aspidistra Polisher before her teens.

She tried to pass these skills on but my brother and I were poor students.

As you can see [...]

REFINED LANGUAGE

I’m always trying to improve my teaching techniques.

Many years ago, I was 19 I think, I had a job at the Chiltonian biscuit factory.

(BTW, I have inside knowledge of what’s in these …
… approach with care)

Anyhoo 1. There was a chap there who reminded me of Abel Magwitch from Great Expectations. A rather scary [...]

A DAY IN THE LIFE.

Lo, she is a terrible Goddess had an appointment at the hairdressers so I took the opportunity to pop into The Twisted Gusset for my usual half a lager with a sherry chaser.

I was greeted by Irene.

“Where’s Lo?”

“Oh, she’s at the hairdressers.”

“They’re very good you know. I had some highlights done there just the other [...]

GET A LIFE

I had one of those flashes of insight, probably had by many already, that tied up a few loose ends that have been floating round my head for ages.

My grandson, who has dabbled, and one of my middle-aged sons, who has immersed himself completely, have played Minecraft. I have been shown it but never felt [...]

THERE’S SOMETHING VERY NICE …

… about bare feet.

Babies feet are just lovely. A bare footed Goddess is sexy. The bare footed male smells less.

HONESTLY, THERE’S SO MUCH CRAP

I would urge people to read The Hidden Persuaders by Vance Packard, published in 1957. I read this at school as part of one of the courses I took. I always take with a pinch of salt newspapers, the news on the telly and any other communications that I can’t experience on a personal level. [...]

ONTO …

… something new … perhaps.

My afternoon nap often throws up an idea or two.

This afternoon I awoke with the thought of ‘words in cages’.

We are becoming more and more restricted in what we are allowed to say although no malice or prejudice is meant or intended. This is worrying.

What is more worrying, for me, is [...]

THIS CREATION …

… from the inspirational and creative genius that is Scissorshop …

… applies to all aspects of life of course. However relationships top the list … so I’m told. Very firmly on occasions.
