The Search For Jesus

The Welsh Flag outside Gay Gordon and Big Mary's bungalow was not flying yesterday so I briefly thought something unfortunate had happened to one or both of them.
I need not have worried for as I stood on the pavement the bungalow door opened and a booming voice rang out
" Hold on Flower! "
I did what I had been told as Gordon appeared in a string vest.
" Congratulations" , he sang out giving me a carrier bag with a card and present inside
" We heard you had got married!"
The gift was two cut glass whiskey glasses.
" by the look of you, I thought you'd like a drink" Gordon boomed, his piggy eyes blinking benignly behind his specs........
It was very sweet of them.

Anyhow, I have just realised with some sadness that the transgender hen Jesus has disappeared from the Ukrainian Village flock.........he/she has been suffering from a degree of wanderlust over the past few month and could be seen ambling alone over the neighbouring fields as far as Basil's sheep field towards the Felin most days

Perhaps he was on retreat

Last night Jesus didn't return home.
I stood on the lower field border at dusk and called out his name
( a fact that made the livery staff at the stables prick up their ears and laugh)
But there was nothing.........
RIP Jesus.........

  4. Such nice people in your village. I hope Jesus is hiding somewhere and makes it back. but having chickens myself know it would be a miracle.

  9. That was kind of Gordon and Mary. Poor Jesus. Maybe he will resurrect?

  10. Never a dull moment around your place. I can just imagine you shouting over the fence, Jesus, Jesus where are you Jesus. Very funny.

  11. He will return... if you believe the bible.

  12. Someone else has surely welcomed Jesus into his life Probably Reynard the Fox. I can imagine him licking his lips and crying to the heavens - "Hallelujah! Sweet Jesus!

  15. Personally? I'd give him 40 days. There's just so much to reflect on.

  18. Bit early to write him off like that I would have thought. Give him another day or two.

  19. Maybe this will help Jesus find his way back, John:

  20. I do hope that Gay Gordons gesture has made up, in some way, for the more negative attitudes you have experienced.

  21. Now we're all waiting for the Second Coming.

  23. I can sort of take it when you leave those that have passed on for the foxes or badgers, but it does upset me when one is killed. I hope Jesus found a nice high tree to roost in for the night and will come back home soon.

  24. Another wedding present. You and Chris are going to need another house...
    And yes, I hope you find Jesus. Again.

  25. "By the look of you, I thought you'd like a drink" - LOL Lovely gift, though.

    Perhaps Jesus is looking for someone more like himself and after a little wander he will return home? I hope so.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Thoughtful gift... very nice.
    Maybe Jesus has just lost the way home, or got closed up in someone's garage... I am just grasping at straws here, John.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Oh what a shame about Jesus! Keeping my fingers crossed he comes home soon. Hate it when you lose an animal... makes me very sad. Nice gift from Gay Gordon.... I love getting glasses for pressies... good excuse to try a new drink...not that I'm desperate or anything :)

  28. So sorry Jesus has gone missing. I hope you weren't standing too close to the church yard when you were shouting for him ;-)
