Re: Leisurely Scribbles (part 5)

At the school I mentioned there, they had a very good anti-bullying system. Apart from prefects, they involved top sporting pupils like First XV Rugby, First XI Cricket and athletics sports to police (if that's the right word) the school during break periods. No violence was involved but such pupils carried 'karisma' or what we would call 'mana' and would almost always stop bullying. I was a fast bowler in the First XI and champion shot putter and they listened to me when I told the bully off.

Re: Leisurely Scribbles (part 5)

A poem sent from a lost friend.
She known around the traps as a girl with some penache

From message board to message board she weaves with quite a dash

But when she lands itís gently fairy down

And when she waves that magic wand? Ė it disappears the frowns



By day she cares for many

At night itís R&R

And if you think youíve got her figured

Well youíll be out by far



Now she just loves to travel

To near and to afar

And when that cameraís clicking

Sheíll catch your every star[e]?



But just when sheís got ya beaten

Sheíll gentle sooth ya brow

She really is a softy Ė and how and how!

Re: Leisurely Scribbles (part 5)

hello someone suggested this would be a bit of a crazy and fun place?

I listened to some professor of birds talkin on the radio today. He said that they had discovered that some birds 'sing' to their chicks whilst they are still in their eggs and when the chicks hatch out they 'sing' the song that mother taught them - this attracts mum of course and she feeds them - cute heh!

Oh hello nicko, this used to be a very busy thread once, it is having a lull. I have a nutty thread in self-mod section.
That is interesting, I saw a similar programme once.
I will nose at your profile to see your interests.

Re: Leisurely Scribbles (part 5)

Alice started to her feet, for it flashed across her mind that she had never before seen a rabbit with either a waistcoat-pocket, or a watch to take out of it, and, burning with curiosity, she ran across the field after it, and was just in time to see it pop down a large rabbit-hole under the hedge.

In another moment down went Alice after it, never once considering how in the world she was to get out again. (Wonderland 1.3-4)

I often stare down at my feet, they often need a lovely treat.
No thought for how much new shoes cost, or when temptation gets me lost.
Time is ticking in my head, should I think more in my bed?
White rabbits are seldom seen these days, white elephants haunt my impulsive ways.
How do I stop this addiction to shoes?
Find a distraction, please help me choose.

Re: Leisurely Scribbles (part 5)

Nice reading there folks, I thought Iíd never get out of school as a kid Ciderman, 40 odd mad kids in one classroom, no picnic I can tell you.

That first poem is about you Sweetie, it has you written all over it, very true too. I had one written for you to post on your Friday night (last night) but we had unexpected visitors and I couldn't get near the Martin Luther, the wifeís niece from Blackheath and her husband, they stayed until 1.30am and drank all me Sandeman port!
Iíll keep the poem for next Friday night.

Hello Nicko and a very warm welcome to you.
Yes this is a sort of open thread, nothing has to make sense or be related in any way to anything else, mixed up scribblings just saying whatever is on your mind at the time, so feel free to say whatever you like, within the forum rules of course.
Never knew that about the birds and the eggs.

Iíve been busy of late and still have plenty to do, I keep telling people that Iím retired but I might as well be talking to the wall. Iíll pop in again later.
