Oh hello, you look divine …. how are the boys? ….. did they build that shrine?
I’m not too sure – is this one mine? …. yes, I used the Northern line ….
Did you hear about Uncle Lime? ….. and then the incident with sisal twine ….
No, he’s fine ….. [that doorway’s crooked, if I just had my plumb-line]
Sorry, sorry, I got diverted ….. they had a look and it’s benign ..
What do you think – beech or antique pine?
I can’t stay long ….. [is that dessert wine?]
A Japanese Umbrella pine? Mmmmm, that’s nice, top of the line –
That Gloria’s like a production line,
How many kids now ….. is it nine?
Oh no, it’s really time to go ….. we must do this another time.

“Who was that?”
“I have no idea…… fancy a pint in the Old Grape Vine?”


Match of the Day

Fred & Ginger

    Hmm, that’s strange! No mention in that small talk of the weather!

    How very remiss of me. It was exceedingly clement for the time of year although I did experience a damp patch on the M25.

    A damp patch on the M25? I’ve never heard it called that before!

    Tee hee ……

    …and no mention of an asinine clementine. It’s a crime.

    daddyp replied:

    The damp patch was due to the silly clementine that I stole from the service station, Clackett’s Lane actually, and then sat on. I didn’t like to mention it in mixed company …… obviously.

    Quick, put a dam on that stream of consciousness!

    Unfortunately, that poem makes as much sense as some conversations I have overheard at the playground. . .

    daddyp replied:

    I know ….. it’s a bit depressing isn’t it? …. oh well

    daddyp replied:

    She was well into her Doc Martens innit ……

    they don’t go well with fancy frocks ..

    I disagree ….. *looks manly …. and slightly confused out of his comfort zone*

    Pass the dessert wine please

    daddyp replied:

    I enjoy a dessert wine ….. I have a very sweet tooth [singular]

    And with that picture on top you didn’t find a line
    Using the word “whine”?

    daddyp replied:

    Dammit ….. another missed opportunity!

    Now while you may think it quite rude
    Instead of a read I fed Gertrude.
    Which, while it rhymes
    Has messed up my times*.
    And on that, I’ll let you now brood!

    (* times = metre)

    I also met another llama yesterday – photos soon.

    daddyp replied:

    Oooo …. when you post them I’ll show Gertrude …. they might be cousins.

    BTW Gerty doesn’t object to being called Trude if that helps ……

    I have no idea where to begin… now where was I?? Oh, yes, heading to the playground to brush up on my conversation skills…

    daddyp replied:

    Start slowly – don’t be too ambitious – and if you begin to lose the will to live buy an ice-cream ……..

    Let’s meet on the Rhine!

    daddyp replied:

    OK ….. I’ll just pack my bags ….. [blimey that was very abrupt]

    Now that was a good match!

    Indeed it was young Fraccy …. indeed it was.
