Now where was I, ah yes, did you know that some of the heads on Easter Island have full bodies? I certainly didn’t, well so the head man was telling me.
You'll have to zoom in on the little picture, I haven't got the hang of this post image thing yet.

Is that the ed-itter on the top?

More like snowchains, or should that be two words? Mind you, you would have a job fitting two words to your tyres, and I doubt it would help getting your vehicle going again.

He has indeed RJ, Fruitcakes don't grow on trees you know.

In this weather everyone should have a pair of thick working socks and a thick working shirt, that way you can send the thick socks and shirt to work and you can stay at home by the warm fire.
I used to have a thick overcoat too but it got lost on me, it kept forgetting to come home with me from the pub. I won’t be buying any thick stuff anymore, it’s smart everything from now on.

Re: Gumbud Leisurely Scribbles (part 5)

That thread about harassment reminded me of a basement workshop I worked in back in 1963, I was about 17 at the time and was still an apprentice. I worked at a five seater bench, sort of like a round table with five half moon sections cut out so one could sit in closer to the ‘Pin’ or little block of wood you worked on.
No women worked in the workshop, but there were four girls who worked in the retail shop above, they all wore a sort of uniform, black jumper, black short skirt, black stockings and shoes, a stupid idea I thought because some of the customers would ask the girls who was dead belonging to them, most embarrassing for them, some of the girls were so fed up with the question that they would put on a sad face and say “The Cat” “Oh I see, I’m so sorry”
Anyway one of the girls called Bernie was a little blond slip of a thing but full of pep, she would sneak up behind me and but her two hands over me eyes “Guess who?” She’d squeeze her hands right into your eyeballs and it hurt a little fella like me “For jaysus sake Bernie your blinding me, get your hands offa me” Then she’d burst out laughing and run back upstairs. I didn’t really mind as I knew well she meant no harm, would that be called harassment today?
She did ask me one time to go babysitting with her to her brothers house but gentleman that I am I had to decline as I was already spoken for. I still wonder what would have happened if I had taken up her offer.
Oh come back to me my sweet little Bernadette, all is forgiven heart of my heart, wick of my candle, head on my pint, I would babysit all your grandchildren just to hear you laugh again.

Re: Gumbud Leisurely Scribbles (part 5)

And Let ttat be aleson too ya laddie

like many schoolboys of me aria I always had a set square set in a glimmy tin box with a small ruller and penccil sharpener. for many years un used I carried it around from dwelling to dwelling - I can no longer find it I either threw it out [god forbid] I more than likely lost it in a box the removal men forgot to unload which they frequently do or do not which ever way you read it.

how life and squares have changed - I doubt if ever you could buy one now and even if I could I don't think I want to go back to technical drawing classes!

when at the age of five I started school I was given an Ipad - it was a black slate surrounded by a wooden rim and I was also given a magic electronic pen called 'chalk' - I must try to buy one of those too and amuse my grandchildren with it - I think they would say it is too slow and then remember those magic Ipad that you could draw on and then with the flash of a switch wipe it out - I wonder what will replace the current Ipad because I am sure it will be - what I am not sure of is whether I will make it long enough to see!

Re: Gumbud Leisurely Scribbles (part 5)

I dunno Gummy, but I’d say there are a few dark horses in these here parts.

For what is a man, what has he got?
If not his memories of never been caught.

It’s minus 8 now and I’m sitting here in me tee shirt and underpants playing computer dominoes and I’m sweating, the wife went up to bed and left a huge coal fire on “Don’t want you catching cold playing your online game Jimmy dear” one cannot lower down a coal fire, talk about overdoing things, bless her kind heart, but I feel like a smoked cod, not to mention the guilt over all the poor unfortunates who have no roof over their heads tonight.
I think I'll put the guard to the fire and head up to bed now, much cooler up there. See you all tomorrow.
