Hello?

Message Left on the Answerphone this afternoon
This is a transcription in it's entirety
"I have a little something ready for you!" rasped the breathless voice.......".I will be in alllllllll day!...pop round if you're free!!!!"
That was it!
A secret admirer...organising a bit of rural extramarital rumpy pumpy perhaps?
Naw....... Auntie Glad has just baked me a load of mince pies!

  5. You watch yourself, John, these little old ladies lure you in with baked goods. Before you know it, though, one of them sits on your lap complaining about a bit of "heart flutter".

    Just kidding, of course, I know that she is a gem.

  13. Auntie Glad is so good to you! I just think she is the cutest thing ever! I think most of your readers are envious of all the wonder baked goods and the sweet nature of her! You should tell her she is quite popular on your blog! I bet she would just grin! :O)

  22. So you trust Aunt Gladys, be careful young man, she might have unexpected pleasures on her mind. She might say mince pies, but...

  25. Hi John-- I've been absolutely swamped this month but just wanted to pop by and say hi and catch up on your posts. I think about you just about every day and always send warm, fluffy thoughts to your field denizens to help with the cold.
    We have tickets to see War Horse in the theater in June and are delighted we get a preview with the movie on Christmas!
    But first Sherlock Holmes of course...thanks for the review. I'll be watching all atwitter for Moriarty now!

  26. Whatever became of the good old obscene phone call and the heavy breather?

    There was something wonderful about the way you could pick up the receiver, listen to the Strowger switchgear connecting you by a strand of copper to some unsuspecting household and then whisper furtively about underwear and asthma.

    Did I just type that out loud? Bugger! Forget I said that, please. Nothing was ever proven.

  27. Hope you replied kindly..
    1471 and all that.

  28. There should be a law against forcing lovely little old ladies to bake for you. Poor Auntie Glad lolx

    Shouldn't that be 'mincing' pies John?

  29. I may not always comment, but never miss one of your posts, always amusing, sometimes sad but not to be missed.
    Enjoy your Christmas and look forward to the future posts.

  32. I'm glad the message was for you. Imagine it being for someone else, with them waiting all afternoon for their invitation to be answered.

  34. British mince pies - does Auntie Glad use sweet meats in her pies or are they like the mince meat pies that I know of hear in the US that have lots of nuts and dried fruits and such in them?

    Curious minds across the pond want to know! grin

    Happy Christmas!
