For some inexplicable reason Lo, she is a terrible Goddess has been Googling things like ‘under’, ‘feet’, ‘get out from’, ‘my’, ‘instant sheds’ and ‘HELP’. I have also noticed that she has designed a sign that reads “Refuge for the Feeble Minded” – it does have a certain ring to it I must say.

Zed from “My Boyfriend is a Twat” on the other hand, has been sending me emails saying “DON’T” and “I know where you live”.

A shed is fairly high on my ‘to do’ list but should I ignore the bits of wood and nails that keep appearing in my underwear drawer, and stick to my plan of spending several months on the sofa ……….. or not.

As usual, I’m slightly perplexed and would be very grateful for precise and brief advice.

{{It doesn’t say “Refuge for the Feeble Minded”, It says


_and the Feeble Minded_

Lo,TG Ed}}

    where’d you swipe the photo from? I’d live in a shed like that!

    It’s actually a boat shed made by some American company – I’m drooling myself.

    [Please give yourself several *hugs* as my connection is seriously crap and I’m giving up the interweave for the day although the engineers are due ……. I ain’t holding my breath though …….. well I might, being an optimist an’ all ….. tee hee]

    [yawn .. I am so tired this morning .. blame the travelling bra woman …]

    daddyp replied:

    A chap does need a place to cound his nails ……..

    Hey DaddyP, don’t forget if you get a large shed you can always put a bar in it with some tasty beverages on tap 😉

    daddyp replied:

    Actually, as it ‘appens, I’ve saved the ol’ fridge from the house – it could come in handy ……

    Actually, when it comes to advice on sheds, my cups are empty. But I second 70’s idea bout puttin’ in a bar…in time for my next visit please!

    Hope you’re having a nice Saturday! 🙂

    daddyp replied:

    That is Karen’s idea actually – 70’s wants me to fall off the edge …….

    fracas replied:

    I’m sure you misunderstood the dear woman, DP, she’s just trying to help you. Everyone knows women find ‘dangerous/bad boy’ type men to be terribly appealing. She’s just encouraging you to live on the edge a bit, knowing that might inspire TG to see you in a whole new light.

    Sheesh. Why would you think anything less than honorable of your dear fanzine editor? It’s not like she’s your secretary or anything. Now that, that’s a situation where I could see a gal plotting a little…

    daddyp replied:

    I don’t mind teetering actually – I’m getting quite used to it ……

    BTW, I notice that you’ve decided to be a twit this year ……. if you can get a word in edgewise what with Olga an’ all …….

    fracas replied:

    Olga’s cups runneth over… what do you expect her to do with it all?

    70steen replied:

    thank you dear Frac I knew you would understand 😉

    fracas replied:

    Olga with empty cups? Say it ain’t so! Would this be a good time to post that Olga/melon photo we took when you were here?

    daddyp replied:

    What photo!!!!!!?! – I deny everything ……..

    fracas replied:

    Seems I am not the only twit around today… I was referring to a photo of Olga taken when she was visiting *me*. (Unless you were hiding in a closet or something… kind of like when you hide in that back room at work)

    daddyp replied:

    That’s right ……. I think I remember. The trouble is, until the telephone engineer arrives tomorrow, my mind is tending to wander whilst waiting for pages to load and/or upload …….. when I press ‘send’ in a tick, I’m planning to give myself a pedicure ………

    Can you shed some light on what you are planning to use yours for?

    daddyp replied:

    Hello Diane …….. glad to see your New Year Resolution of not to make dreadful puns has stumbled at the first hurdle …….. did you have a lovely Yuletide? My blog reading is severely restricted at the moment ………….

    Two Words: Man Cave.

    Snoop (the rapper) had his shed pimped out.

    Just put a crappy one in your back yard and then call Man Cave to fix it up.

    daddyp replied:

    Angelika!!! – indeed, I intend to pimp my shed – I was thinking along the lines of a chromed roof and a woodstove with massive mufflers and a boombox that will shake my rafters ……. I’m actually pounding my chest as I type ……….. so exciting

    I refer you to this little gem

    I’m so glad to hear that even in the outback there are a few civilised attitudes that are recorded in song ……… nice hat BTW

    My son is contemplating getting a shed – so one of his Christmas present from me was a book of shed based experiments, a light for his shed (which is still a pipe dream) and a bag of marshmallows to nibble whilst experimenting. all he needs now is the chair oh and the shed of course!

    daddyp replied:

    He must stop contemplating and start building – they are vital. The British Empire was built in a shed as will be the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympics ……
