LITTLE Bits Of News


The bachelors are getting somewhat pugnacious with strangers and ambushed several elderly hikers this morning who had to fend them off with their ski poles!
It's a case of little men syndrome
Well little cock syndrome actually!
At least the hikers took the assault with good humour- unlike the meter reading man a week or so ago, who was decidedly muffed at being chased down the path by three six inch birds with feathery feet.
I think we all know someone with little cock syndrome!
I'm behind with things with the Flower Show today and feel it.
I've still got 200 raffle tickets to sell, all of the hand embroidered tablecloths to wash and iron and still have a mound of baking to do and that's before all the admin bits to sort, people to bully, oh and notice boards to pick up.
There are not enough minutes in the day
The Prof is feeling neglected as is the norm this time of year, so I did make him " cock-eyed egg" for breakfast in bed! this morning as a treat! ( cock eyed egg is in fact egg in a basket!)

Oh And I cleaned the crap out of the fridge in way of saying that I hadn't forgotten the housework, but the cottage still looks like a jumble sale venue with cakes, knitted items of all descriptions and brick a brac piled high in every corner.

Jo the policewoman caught me yesterday with my Bluetooth earphones on when we were out with our respective dogs, I could see she was impressed with my leap into 21st century technology.
" listening to anything nice ?" She asked me
I didn't have the heart to tell her that the Bluetooth headphones had not been charged properly and were only there to keep my ears warm.

There's a big gig in the church this morning, I waved at Gaynor - the- mad- organist as she drove in early to get a parking space .....seeing her reminded me that I 'm thinking of organising a village fete again next year to raise funds for the Church and Samaritans ......what Am I thinking of? ...it's a case of
if you want a job doing...ask a busy man

  4. Love the story of the Bluetooth earphones. Reminds me of a guy I saw one year at the Gay Pride Parade in San Diego. He was barking instructions into his "walkie-talkie" all along the parade route. On closer inspection, I saw the walkie-talkie was actually a very old transistor radio... the front half of a very old transistor radio. And the poor guy didn't even have three 6-inch cocks chasing him.

  6. I may have mentioned this before, but there is a reason why classical male sculpture always leaves a little something to be desired in the willy department. If you carve a normal-sized one on, that's all anyone ever looks at. You cannot take your eyes off it and it looks grotesque.

    2. I have tried it out on a life-sized carving, so I know it to be true.

  8. Thanks for sharing that picture of the anatomically correct statue of your good self that still stands close to the site of the former Lodge Moor Hospital. I recall the legend below says "He never cocked things up".

  9. That appendage looks like a face! A cock for a nose and saggy balls for the cheeks all atop with a Boris Johnson wig! Thank you for a Sunday laugh John! x

  10. Typical of retirement.... are you wondering how you ever had the time to go to work? What will become of your tiny chickens?

  13. It's true though.....if you need something done ask a busy person. You know how to prioritize and organize and all those other 'izes'.

  15. You have done a great service to this benighted American. The link you most thoughtfully provided for egg-in-a-basket served to dispel my long-standing puzzlement as what the heck a toad-in-the-hole was. I am pleased to discover Brits do not eat amphibians for breakfast.

  16. It is too early in the morning to have that sight greet me, when expecting to read an amusing story that takes place in a charming village ... where everyone is generally fully dressed.

  17. It's the little cocks that cause the most problems isn't it. Our last one hated Alan with a vengeance and Alan's legs bear the scars to prove it ... much to my amusement he never chased me out of Chicken World only Alan :-)

    I think you should learn to delegate, especially the washing and ironing of the tablecloths!!

  18. Sue beat me to it to say delegate John, I'm sure someone else can wash and iron tablecloths, ask them what they want to do wash & iron or sell the last 200 raffle tickets...thank you for manning the gate on Friday and I'm sorry you got wet ..our show is over, we finished the last clearing up today ....I'm now having a ( large ) glass of wine and it's only 3.30 on a Sunday ..how decadent ..

  19. Good luck with the fete, that is a large thing to organize. My friend and I are organizing a Quiz night to raise money for the local hospice. My Mum spent a month in there, and my friend's hubby spent his last 4 days in there.

  20. I would wash and iron tablecloths for you. That is the sort of mindless task I love.
    I was talking to a friend yesterday and we were both bemoaning the state of our homes. "It looks like an insane person lives here," she said. "And I realize the insane person is me."
    She too is incredibly busy. I have no excuse.
    Little cocks can be misleading as to real size and ability. Let me just point that out.

  21. It still looks small to me even if I imagine it big.

  22. Well I'll just say that when Miss Chef is overwhelmed by planned events (eg, restaurant week), I don't feel neglected. I step in and take up her slack around the house and make sure she has something to eat when she's home. I certainly wouldn't expect breakfast in bed from her! You sure spoil that man of yours.

  26. Just read this bbc news shrinkflation and thought of you John, no offence intended but due to avoiding price rises A*drex toilet tissue rolls have reduced numbers of sheets per roll but a spokesman said quality increased so PRODUCT PERFORMANCE was improved...Who? Who knew..?

  27. I thought you were retired? Shouldn't you be lounging around reading a book or something? You are working too hard, ha.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Oh dear, secretly you love it. The bliss of retirement is that you can become totally obsessed with things that you would only give 5 minutes too when you had to work for a living. I have no idea how I found time to work what with craft shows, the garden, the kitchen and the odd bit of housework. I am busy, busy busy, and busy, doing something kind of nothing....

  31. The sculptor must have run out of marble.

  32. My husband calls this "short person syndrome" but it's the same thing. He says it only applies to men; women don't mind being short but men feel they have to compensate! Just to be clear I am talking about height only :)

  33. We call those eggs in toast Toad in the Hole, my dad's specialty! He always made it for my kids, his only grandkids.

  34. So you're finding retirement really boring then? You should find yourself something to do with your time, John.
