No Painting, Mrs Simmons and Police Porn

It's lunchtime and still I have not got around to painting the remainder of the front room!
I was up at 5.30 taking the Prof to work in order to be around for 7 am ( the earliest time when the new fridge was being delivered)
It duly arrived around 10.30 and we had the usual performance from Winnie as the two delivery men were " encouraged" to make a fuss. One gave her a big kiss on the chops which sent her into paroxysms of delight........she's sulking now because no one else has knocked on the door!

So we have a fridge now......the Prof's life is no longer shite!
I've done some shopping and filled the fridge , then dropped Mary down the lane to Trendy Carol's house to play with her Welsh Terrier Bitch Seren ( see video)

I thought with Mary occupied I could then get on with painting unhindered.
Wrong! 
I had just reached the gate when I spied Mrs Simmons walking down the lane.
She waved for me to stop.
" Bob's gravestone has been put in the churchyard" she said " I wondered if you would come with me to see it?"
It had been a year since I read the eulogy at her husband's funeral service.
The stone and inscription on the gravestone was simple and fitting and I told Mrs Simmons that as we
Stood amid the graves looking at it.
She can talk the hind leg off a donkey can Mrs Simmons , so as nice as she is, I was glad to see police  personnel Ian and Jo walk up with their greyhound in tow for they took over the conversation nicely.

Anyhow speaking of the police, I was spoilt last night with a difficult choice of tv viewing/ radio listening. We had got back after a rather good Thai meal out when I realised that I had not see Bake off or listened to day three of Helen's trial in The Archers.
There was also a new reality cop show on sky ( The Force -Essex) to give the once over to
(The Prof always raises a Roger Moore eyebrow when reality cop shows come on the tv....he refers to my drooling addiction to men in uniform as Police Porn! ) ...oh.....and it was the Opening Ceremony of the Paralympics to watch.......so I was spoilt by choice.....
In the end I watched and listened to all four, so I didn't get to bed until the small hours.

And you wonder why I haven't lifted a paint brush up yet!?
I'm bloody knackered
Hey ho!
Student Mike leaves the bake off tent!  
But it was Tom who made a loaf in the shape of a penis!

Big bearded cops in Essex..what's pornagraphic about that? 
Yuk yuk

I recognised two of the  team GB wheelchair competitors 
From my spinal injury days

  1. What a busy and varied life you seem to lead John - nothing humdrum about it, I will say that. Those two terriers will be worn out by the time you fetch Mary home, so you should get a bit of peace there.

  2. Thank you! Loved the video. Dogs live in the moment don't they?

  3. The cops look quite nice. So what would they do if they pulled you over for a license check? I'll watch the video now.

  4. Could you read me a bedtime story every night? Oh, how I love your voice!

  5. Mary and Seren certainly seem to be having fun as they race around the lawn. Couldn't you have added some music? Perhaps "Love Story"...
    Where do I begin
    To tell the story of how great a love can be?

  6. Lots of variety in your life.....puppies and grave stones, cops and wheelchairs, painting and bake offs. My goodness my life is boring.

  7. I'm with The Prof when it comes to police shows. My Rare One luuuuuvs to watch endless True Crime programs. If I had a Roger Moore eyebrow, it would be permanently lifted.

  8. Watching Mary and Seren at play was so cheerful I watched the vid three times; waiting to see Miss Winnie's ecstatic working man paroxysms however.

    I pulled a 52 hour work week, can you believe it!?!

  13. I miss watching two dogs play. My Pomeranian has to just bark and bark so he annoys other dogs. And I learned a new word "spoilt", not a word Americans use. Perhaps in Appalachia or the south.

  14. Spoiled/spoilt, same word, just different pronunciation. I am from the South and we said Spoiled but my grandmother was British so who knows ? :)

  15. Aren't those puppies having fun! How could anyone not smile seeing that :)

    It must be quite moving to see your former patients and how well they're doing. Nice.

  16. Meanwhile John ... my husband used to tease me about being a ghoul because I like Old graveyards .. I love the time worn stones and the angels .. The really sad ones are when a few people in one family died at the same time ... some fever that went through in those days .
    And I love the stones, with the angels and beautiful work carved into them.
    So much more loving in its way than those great granite slabs that they put on graves here/these days..or worse, no stone, just a little thing on the ground that tells you someone is buried at your feet.

  17. I keep hoping someone will offer you a movie contract to do the story of Trelawynd and your life with the Prof and doggies and all, and pay you to narrate it!!!
    You have the most beautiful accent and your voice is perfect for narration...or, they could hire you to play yourself AND narrate. Really lovely voice. Please let us hear more of it!

  18. Love the video of Mary, little uns have such fun together don't they.

    You do like a man in uniform don't you, it's a shame my lot haven't all kept their uniforms you could have come round and drooled in person ... I have ex-Royal Navy, ex-Army and ex-Police in my three men ;-)

  19. Film critique:

    The hand-held camera really created an atmosphere of reality and suspense, but I cannot help thinking that the dog was hand-held too, otherwise how could you refer to it without getting down on your knees and up again so quickly?

    Top Tip: Get a sponge muffler for your microphone, and be mindful of wind direction (no pun, etc...) and spitting 'P's into it.

    6/10.

  23. Being from the south.. we say spoilt rotten.
    It's when a southern gal says " Oh, hell....
    NO" that you best run and hide.
    I want to live where you do...it looks just wonderful.

  24. Love your voice. Let us hear more of it, please.

  25. Confession: Cop reality shows (from any country) is one of my own 'secret' pleasures too. ("I plead guilty, m'Lud!")

  26. Good to see dogs playing with their friends. Ours has a girlfriend who occasionally visits, and they rush around just the same.

  27. Can we see the new fridge?

  28. I love that Mary has a friend to play with. I also love hearing you talk... could you become a Vlogger or perhaps you could video your desert island discs for us ? x
