Who would have thought it?

The pretty pre Raphaelite Nurse brought her scrambled egg back with a laugh this morning.
She did not have a clue about just why an egg should be filled with chilli flavoured scrambled egg that is until she had read my blog last night ( I didn't even know that she read it) and she took it all in good stead as good looking nurses have a tendency to do....
It never ceases to amaze me that some 350 souls look at this blog daily. Of course some of that number will be directed to the site by google who will pick up on my more racy of "key words"  such as "crackhead whores"........bless them, I guess that the everyday adventures of a set of bald hens would let these clients down somewhat, and their fat little fingers would be a blur on the delete button.......but I must say, to all of the others who make the effort daily to read this drivel....a big thank you.
I now have 414 followers. Perhaps a quarter of which call in regularly and it does tickle me somewhat to think of the eclectic mix of people that are lurking out there in blogland....
So to all of the....

Canadian ladies with exquisite tastes,

  1. The pre Raphaelite nurse must have been rather taken aback to find herself tucking into a chili-flavoured egg. So you still have to identify the egg-thief then?

    I only visit your blog because of the threatening messages that say "Visit mie blog or elss. Signed J Gray". Otherwise I wouldn't bother.

  3. It looks like your list of visitors pretty much includes all of us out here who are reading blogs at 4 in the morning, not only due to insomnia but also the sheer delight of listening to those such as yourself with an insight into life and a sense of humor.

  4. Could it be because you are such a nice person, the blog is so funny, we all love you, the animals and in our own little way we want your life??

  5. Nice to see I topped your list! This is heartening as I plot my escape from paradise. One day I hope I will be back in the earthy, commonsensical world that you inhabit.

  7. You forgot your loyal readers who are goats! Tee hee. I know that there must be several of us on here. You always give my lady something to laugh about, get sentimental about or think about. She may not let me post a comment every day - after all I need to come up to the house from the barn and get my hooves wiped off - but we read every post you make. xoxoxo

  9. Fancy the pretty nurse reading your blog!
    I wonder how many folks you've described unfavourably who might read it?

  15. Your blog is one that I try to read every morning before I leave for the office. My Great Grandmother was born in Swansea. I enjoy the daily glimpse into life in small town life. Keep up the great writing.

  20. How about all that lot (above) to make you feel wanted on a Thursday!!

  21. And of course, don't forget "bosoms" for one of those potentially racy words...

    I need to be more diligent in my blog entries--i try for two a week, and with all that's been going on lately, that's been a tall enough order.

  22. happy I'm not an egg eater in your chicken coop...or a crackhead whore (my chance for that title has come and gone!!! ;)

    you know we all love you John and your family, human, feathered, furry!

    ReplyDelete
  23. And where do I fit in that list?

    ReplyDelete
  24. I guess that I'm an "odd housewife with a story to tell" then ?
    Suits me fine !

    Whoever we are we all love your Blog John x

  25. I swear I wasn't trolling google for crackhead whores. I saw you pop up repeatedly on several other blogs I read, and eventually your irresistable charm had its way. It's inexplicable, like alien abductions.

    The icing on the cake is the wit of your readers...the comments are as much fun as the content.

  26. I come by for the tongue-in-cheek humour aimed at life and, thankfully, I'm never disappointed ... ;0)

  27. I start my early morning with a read of your blog, it always put me in a good mood .
    You are a wise and crazy man my bloggy frined ;)

  28. Yes John I feel like that about my blog too. And do bear in mind that you probably have a lot of other people who read you blog and who don't blog themselves so never bother to answer. Yours is always the first blog I read because it almost always makes me laugh and starts my day off well.

  33. I'm glad you included Kiwis! I can't remember when or how I stumbled across your blog but it was quite a few years ago. Now I like to visit you and Mr Stephenson every morning while I sip my first mug of coffee for the day.

  40. I was trying to find myself in your list, and decided I'd identify as: Straight (married to a man for 26 years), but I think you may need a category for Urban Chicken Owners, for we have 4 Jersey Giants in our urban backyard in San Diego, CA, USA.

  42. Hey John, the pleasure is all mine!

  43. We are quite a rag tag bunch aren't we? Did you ever see the French movie, The King of Hearts? Sometimes it feels like that village here on your blog...a little nuts, granted, but with the deeper sanity of good hearts.
