Gawd Help Us

Just when you thought it safe to venture back into blog land
A Caveman blogger decides to indulge in fairly complicated
Surgery on the kitchen table


And I worry about having to work an extra hour tonight!


I have said it before
John Wayne
Is alive and kicking
And living a mad as a box of frogs life in Angola

  1. But remember his floor. Would John Wayne have cared how well it was sanded, or not?

  2. Just checked in on your friend with the snakebite. You do know the most interesting people.

  6. I read this yesterday - and decided to postpone my dinner for a while. Urgh!!! I read his blog regularly, thanks to your introduction, John; don't tell him, but I prefer your creatures to the ones he lives with.

  8. Nope. Daren't go there. I popped over when you first mentioned his toe, weeks ago, and I'm still having nightmares. You're on your own mate.....

  9. Thank you for sharing this little "snippet". See what I did there...

    And guess what? For one whole week, we are one hour closer to North America. Gosh n' stuff.

    Have a good long Sunday!

    1. What do you mean: He is still alive? Dead man limping more like it.

  12. You will need the same kit in the kitchen when those False Widow spiders get North of Birmingham, mark my words.

    When a snake bites your arse and the poison has to be sucked out is when you find out who your real friends are.

  13. When I showed the foot-bath picture to Lady Magnon, she almost lost her breakfast.

  15. OK I found the post. I'm a vegetarian (I don't eat anything with a face!) yet running a Guest House and feeding 21 hungry miners three times a day, I buy the meat (nothing left to hunt here!), pack it, show the chefs how to prepare it and help them serve it. In fact, I'm just about to carve up a leg of lamb for Sunday lunch. John, thanks for your comment on my recent post. Yes, life is something like sipping G&T's while lounging in wicker chairs (although I'm teetotal and sip soda water!) but I was hoping you'd seen my post where I helped the vet here in my house to perform two castrations on our young cats and to spay a dog. Much more like your type of life, don't you think? Mmm. I really enjoy visiting your blog. Have a great day. Greetings, Jo

  16. Just spent an interesting half hour reading " hippo's" back posts...thanks for the introduction. He is now on my bookmarks bar! Didn't like the toe pics though...luckily I had already eaten my toast. Had to get up at " normal" time as puppy's internal clock didn't change at 2am.....it will be a long day!

    1. I just did the same thing! I hadn't read his earlier post that John mentioned some time ago. Hippo is also now bookmarked here. I read it about 6am my time and hadn't eaten anything - thank goodness!

  17. No way.
    I got hooked into the bad toe posts last time and regretted it. Didn't sleep properly for days and couldn't face sausage and mash for weeks.

  18. What a superb blog, thanks for the link.

  19. I promise I won't do any more foot posts and concentrate more on daily life and recipes but, knowing my luck, something gory is bound to happen to me!

  20. Who needs nutcrackers when you can have nut-removers?

  21. Pop over - I did a post for you xxxxxxx

  22. I have a morbid fascination with the toe updates!!!

  23. I've been bitten by a parrot and giant Aldabra tortoise - both of which took small pieces of me - but thankfully never by a snake! Oh, my word, Hippo, you do lead an interesting life!
