SGB


Around 3pm, I walk the dogs around the village and deliver eggs if there is a need to do so.
Today, along London Road, I bumped into the ever cheerful Jason, who as usual was carrying his toddler daughter on his shoulders.They were off to pick up Jason's other daughter from school.


As I stopped he looked me up and down slowly
.
Egg and chicken poo on my hoodie top
Ripped combats
Rubber over shoes,
hair all over the place
Not a good look, I would admit
"Do you know" he said "that The Red Faced Welsh Farmer ( RFWF) is setting up his own blog!?"
I fell for it
"No " I said
"Yes!... apparently he refers to you in it as The S.G.B.!"
"What's that stand for" I asked
He laughed 
"SCRUFFY, GAY BASTARD!"
Time to tidy up, me thinks...........
and I am serious....

  2. Bought myself some dungerees last year to wear up the plot / cleaning chicken coops etc. They cost a bit.

    Never worn them as apparently they are supposedly a kind of 'gay' signal. Is that right?

    Do you want them John? ;-)

    I dunno, John, yours is a look that not everyone can wear well. Although you might want a cleaner hoodie when you go delivering eggs.

  11. Ive been spurred into action after a spot of Facebook stalking. Found my "one that got away" who had the most gorgeously well turned out slim and attractive wife, and realised he would consider me a "lucky escape"! Its a right load of effort though and I'm still not getting it right! Struggling myself so can't help you with Gay Outdoor wear i'm afraid xxxx

  12. SGB, that's kind of snappy...

  13. John, absolutely no offense intended, but I think you'll have to invent a time machine to end up looking like the guy whose image is gracing this post.

  17. Sounds like Jason has a way with words.

  18. Personally, I love the chicken farmer look!

  19. I would have thought your get-up was completely appropriate for dealing with a load of troublesome, messy animals every day. What does he expect, a three piece suit and a bow tie?

  20. EXAMPLE FASHION TIPS for MEN:-

    Draping a scarf around your neck and letting it hang down your torso is a great way to slim down a rotund chest and belly.
    Double breasted jackets work better with a wide tie and wide fitting trousers.
    In colour psychology purple is regal and expensive. Wear a purple tie with a dark grey suit and you’ll be heads and shoulders above the crowd.
    Vary the texture & colour of your tie and your pocket square. Matching the tie to the pocket square can look too try-hard.

  21. It's a gift to yourself John, to tidy yourself up a bit before you go out and about.
    I decided a number of years ago that brushing my hair and a swish of lipstick was mandatory before heading out the door.
    It's amazing what it does for your self-confidence!

  22. lipstick it is then jaq xxx

  23. John, don't worry about other people say or think. You just be yourself. We always have some sign of our smallholding life stamped upon us somewhere, even if it is just our muddy shoes. You are someone who casts a long shadow because of the caring person you are. Stay as you are!

    ReplyDelete
  24. LOL...tell them that you are SOOOOO beautiful on the inside that you don't need to bother with all that preening...you're not scruffy, you're confident:-)

  25. You never fail to give me a "chuckle" from way over there, John ! LMAO

  26. You went straight to the bath-tub did you John?!

    ReplyDelete
  27. haha....great thing about Johns blog is that the most ordinary conversations and momentary meetings can be passed around the world for an instant comment....he did look a scruffy bastard though !

  28. jason!
    it was all your own work!
    thank you for the great blog entry
    Trelawnyd may be small
    but it is the basis of some great quotes!

  29. i did ask whether it was human poo .....chicken shit is so less damaging to your status in a small village

    ReplyDelete
  30. I cant believe you asked me if it was human.....
    what does that make me?

    ReplyDelete
  31. at least people will now realise that I dont make this shit up

    ReplyDelete
  32. Haha. John.
    A clean hoodie is probably quite sufficient, given all that you go through in a day.

    Have a wonderful weekend! :o)

  33. You should see some of my barn outfits that have been worn to the grocery store.

    Thanks for the comment about our farm house. It was built in the late 1820s and we have lived here for over 30 years.

  34. Oh my.

    Im sure the word "scruffy" is definitely a word of endearment...

    oh wait, i was thinking of terriers...

    ;p

    ReplyDelete
  35. I dunno .... there's several Bogan towns in Australia, particularly up in Q-billy land, where you fit right in dressed like that and no-one would think you were either scruffy or gay!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Oh come now, "scruffy" is so endearing!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Scruffy is also comfortable.

  38. My suggestion is to wear whatever you don't mind being covered in Turkey shit, as well as heavy duty 'Marigolds', and thigh length Wellies.

  39. You DO I know, I suppose, SGB, that that's how you will be thought of from now on!
