|'What a story......'|
My favourite film of all time is ALL ABOUT EVE. In my dreams I live a life where wisecracking one liners, waspish divas and suave villains are the order of the day.
It's a common day dream of middle aged old queens.
As a favour to animal helper Pat ( who is high up on the Women's Institute hierarchy table) I am giving a talk to the Llanasa WI branch this evening.
The subject will be " blogging" in general and " Going Gently" more specifically
and as usual I have left my preparation rather late in the day.
As I was bucketing water into the ducks' paddling pool this morning I stopped briefly to go through a rough version of my introdction, and the animals, who at that time are not used to me even farting once let alone spouting a whole pile of 'prose' in their direction, all stopped what they were doing to listen carefully to what I was up to.
I had just covered my " blogging as therapy " line when I caught sight of the Ewes giving me a quizzical stare and all I could think of was Thelma Ritter's famous one liner in All About Eve, which perhaps sums me up more than any other
WHAT A STORY!.....EVERYTHING BUT THE BLOODHOUNDS SNAPPING AT HER REAR END
