About This Blog

This blog was originally started as a thread on the forum pages of an animal rescue site. Now it's here!

The articles you find in here are purely for entertainment (yours and mine) and (with one or two exceptions) are all tongue-in-cheek chronicles of the World (my bit, anyway) as I see it.
No disrespect is intended towards anyone unless I make a mistake and make it too obvious.

I hope you enjoy my offerings. Feedback and comments of any kind are welcome.

Old Tom

I bumped into Old Tom the other day.

"Morning George" he said.

"Morning ..."

"... Tom" he interrupted.

"... er, yes. I know. Morning Tom"

He shook my hand vigorously.

"Here, Tom, d'you remember that bully Ted Harris?  From the King's ..."

"... Head pub? Yes I do." he said.  "Not here, is he?" he asked, looking around.

"No, no" I said."I was on my way to the doctors ..."


"No, I was walking."


"Anyway"  I continued. "I saw him a few weeks ago down Pitfall Lane."

"Oh no!  What'd he do?"

"He shook me warmly by the ..."

"... hand?"

"No.  Throat!"

"Good grief! What did you say?"

"Gngh-gngh-gngh-gngh mostly."

"What did you do?"

"Well, I put my military training to good use, didn't I."

"You begged for mercy, didn't you?"

"Don't we all?" I said. "D'you want to sign my plaster casts Tom?"
