Bras, Pants And Gifts!

I wasn't going to the blog until after episode five of The Walking Dead which airs this evening, but in between power washing the back patio and waiting for tradesmen to arrive I have been in receipt of a couple of kind gifts and have rather surprisingly caught a fellow villager at her back kitchen window in her bra and knickers when I was out collecting egg boxes
I don't know which one of us was more embarrassed
It's a while since I've seen a lady just in her smalls!

Anyhow let's change the subject
 A big thank you to villager Christine who reads the blog
And left me out a small gift of a vintage toasting fork!
Which I am modelling with the help of a small pork sausage !


And another big thank you to Gayle from Arizona
Who sent me a pack of walking Dead playing cards!
Christmas has come early!

  1. I have never seen pants like that before?

    p.s I am glad the cannibal part of the walking dead show is over.

    1. That is a girdle. See the tabs at the bottom? Those were to hold up old-fashioned nylons. None of this new-fangled pantyhose in existence until the 1960's, y'know! A girdle was worn over the underpants. That woman looks astonishingly like my great-grandmother. Her face, I mean!

  3. Well, aren't you a lucky guy to receive early Christmas gifts. And honestly, John, we don't all look that bad. ;-)

  4. I often wander around the house scantily glad, or less.

  6. That reminds me of the time I went to drop off next doors parcel. She opened the front door and we chatted. Then out of the corner I noticed a pair of bare and hairy legs coming down the stairs, followed by bare knees and eek-The full Monty! closely followed by the blushing face of Dave next-door who had no idea his wife was at the front door! I could never look him in the face from then on!

  7. Last weeks WD was a bit weak... Lets hope that Carol was faking and lets them all have it this week! Very jealous of the cards, am going to try Amazon to see if they do them...

    1. I saw them at Walgreens if you live in America. I looked for another pack but I couldn't find any more.

    2. Hi angryparsnip, thanks so much for looking, but I live in the UK, and have found some on Amazon!

  8. Wish I had a fireplace....and the toasting fork...lucky man! May have to get a fire pit out of doors. Love the dreamy look on Winnies face.

  9. I must ask, does anyone wear girdles anymore???

    Enjoy your gifts :)

  10. I hope you reassured your underdressed neighbor of your complete empathy, having the habit of flashing your own bum at innocent passerby. Uninformed visitors to your village would have no idea of the racy social life available to its residents.

  11. Well! May I be the first this year to wish you a Merry Christmas!

  12. Now we'll hear lots of toasting fork stories.....marshmallows and crumpets, toast and hot dogs....lots of fun.

  13. How did you manage to find a photo of me in my undies?

    ReplyDelete
  14. Undies - I can't be bothered with bras and girdles anymore, be glad you are NOT my neighbor!

    Toasting Fork - Now THAT is a very thoughtful gift, you will get much use out of that.

    Playing cards - I bet you won't use them, just take them out every so often and drool. :-)

  15. Very accommodating for that co-villager to have posed for you. Can't help wondering what you had to do for her in exchange.

  16. Try singing loudly as you approach neighbour's houses John, so that they have time to nip behind a bush or something.

  17. You call those 'SMALLS'...... they look like 'BIGGUNS' to me.

    ReplyDelete
  18. That is a very appropriate post….I just came to tell you that as I was browsing a gift website, I came across " Walking Dead" Monopoly!! and thought of you. You have probably already got one? It's on Firebox.com .

  19. At least she was wearing her smalls.

  20. I thought the cards where a hoot. If I lived near you I would have tucked them into your Christmas Stocking (woohoo) I am happy I found the character you liked.
    Besides your great post you have the best comments. Everyone is so clever.

    cheers, parsnip

  21. What nice people you know, John! Now what do you have left to put on your Christmas wish list?

  22. "and have rather surprisingly caught a fellow villager at her back kitchen window in her bra and knickers when I was out collecting egg boxes"...

    Do you really expect the Trelawnyd Constabulary to swallow that story... again?

    ReplyDelete
  23. ...and that's the most animated I've ever seen your Winnie. I do hope she and her colleague got more than a sniff

  24. John how is Meg? I hope she is brighter

  25. I have one word for the lady in the girdle - Spanx.

    I was going to ask you about Meg but I see you have already answered that. I hope that all goes well at the vet's.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oh, happy day!!! A fork and Daryl, what could beat that? I must find some of those cards.

    Healing thoughts to Meg.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I never wear either of those garments.

    YAYZ for meg and toasting forks and playing cards!

    ReplyDelete
  28. That's what I was thinking. Looks like Winnie appreciates the sausage on the fork. ;-)

  29. Nothing about that photo suggests, "smalls", in any form or fashion of slang. I must admit that I don't watch much tv any more and my coworkers are aghast that I haven't watched the Walking Dead. I have to check it out now that you mentioned the church in my photograph looks like one on the series.

  30. I don't think those can be considered smalls. I wander around the house naked. I'm sure a few neighbors have spotted me, but they don't say a word.

    Love,
    Janie

  31. There's no way they can be called 'smalls' they are most definitely 'bigs' ... Lol.

    Now the dogs know that tasty things go on the end of the toasting fork I doubt anything will get anywhere near toasted before it is snatched off the end ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Sausages and girdles - what do these things have in common?

    ReplyDelete
  33. Now you can toast your scotch eggs Mr Gray.
