An Apology


The arrival of winter heralds the donning of the long johns at Bwthyn-y-llan. I have never really been a fan of the old budgie smuggler preferring something with a bit" more body" if you get my drift, but come the cold mornings...on go the thermals .......with a sigh of pleasure......and they will stay glued to me like a second skin until spring.
I learnt a new word this morning, as I climbed groaning out of bed. I was giving my arse a healthy scratch when Chris opened a bleary eye, took a look at my grey long johns and said
" you are certainly not known for your sartorial elegance"
I had to ask what sartorial meant
I guess if you have to ask you just haven't " got it"
Anyhow, whilst we are on the subject of " pants" I have to pen a public apology to the doctor's wife Pippa Barnsley to whom I flashed a pair of buttocks at the other day when I was squeezing into a second most favorite pair of long johns in front of the cottage window and she was out on the lane walking her hounds.
Old cottages have low windows

  3. Wow whose the bloke in the picture? Is it you? I suspect there is more than a budgie in his long johns, looks like a large squirrel from here!
    I am always flashing at the neighbours here. It's probably the only bit of flesh the old boy next door sees. I think I brighten his day!

  10. I would like to say something nice about you wearing long johns, but I cannot. But wait. Maybe they are a onesie? You are fashionable and ahead of time.

  12. I had to learn what 'budgie smugglers' were as well, so don't feel too bad about 'sartorial'. No excuse for mooning at the neighbours, though.

  19. I think you look quite elegant in a 'visitor from outer space' kind of way.
    As to getting dressed in front of the window, I do it every morning as I like to look at the view across the fields., Folk rarely pass but I reckon that if they do and they get pleasure from someone my age getting dressed, good luck to them.

  20. Seeing your "long john" I'm sure made her day. Now excuse me while I call your local police so they can warn the neighborhood children

  21. The long johns become your second skin? Good God, man, I hope you wash them at least once during the winter.

    Love,

  24. I used to love a flash of the undergarments worn by Pa Walton from The Waltons
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Union_suit

    They had little openings at the back...to flash from !

  25. Yes John, do yours have the hatch at the back too? We've got so much information about you, one little bit more shouldn't matter.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Thanks for the good laugh (and you didn't even have to flash me)!

  27. I'm a warm-blooded person so I don't feel the need for thermal underwear. By the way, there's a common privacy device known as curtains. I recommend them highly.

    And no, that can't possibly be you, he's not eating scotch eggs.

  30. I wonder if the villagers gathered at the local pub compare "John's bum" sightings the way birders compare glimpses of say, Great Tits.

  32. I was standing right behind Pippa and thoughly enjoyed the show. Stay warm.

  33. Oh the long-johns are a life saver during the winter months and those thick socks come in handy too.Now you can get underwear with some sort of thermal warming stuff which heats up gently and keeps your body warm. They are brilliant.
    And keep those curtains closed, ha ha ha ha. I bet she had a right laugh.

  34. Ah you gave her the bums rush...
