Now that's what I call multi-tasking: holding ladder duty and pruning simultaneously! Talented, or longitudinally gifted in the arm department, is our FSL.

The one in question was what I call a cottage loaf woman.... Further description available on request.



Presently awaiting re-arrival of Ms Boulaye and her charity team, one wonders if one will be meeting any more 'names' today.

Hmm Radar, do elaborate on the cottage loaf....

Dea, good to read you're all right mate.

Gainesy, thanks for that, it's what I'm trying to do, but to little avail.

Ones newly installed airconditioning system makes the Purple Boudoir a yet more pleasant place.

for those that may not know what a cottage loaf looks like...


Imagine a woman who is larger on the bottom than on the top, but still very generously endowed? Then imagine her receiving great pressure from above causing her to be 'squashed' just slightly?!

Now imagine her wearing brightly coloured multi coloured striped tights with feet inserted into brown flat 'ethical' shoes, a gathered burgundy leather skirt with beads hanging off the bottom that is rather tightly stretched over her rear end and thereby faded somewhat?

Then the upper half is covered in a fluffy molhair jumper, the type that fades from light green from the shoulders and her, ahem, enbonpoint, down to dark green around the 'waist' area?

Then to top it all we have paper mache beads fighting for attention with her spectacles and chain, both trying to find gravity but still horizontally placed - goodness knows how she got all that on over the extreme fluffiness of her frizzy diagonally arranged hair, through which peeked out bright earnest 'charity' eyes that filled with pity when I mentioned my deafness, hence my rather abrupt reponse to her colleague who was a 'grey' man.... grey hair, grey skin, grey suit, grey shoes.....

Glad I waited a bit after lunch before reding your graphic description.

Such types tend to be ignored this far north

Financial needs Mr Fairr, financial needs....


Thankfully no longer there, but am glad that I saw the 'other side' for a while - learnt a lot and accumulated a few stories....

Motormower Mr Gee. One is going to give it a damn good thrashing with a branch, a la Python.

Coincidentally one has just this minute harangued the manager of the workshop that has just serviced my mower. On first use post service the left front wheel fell off after about 5 yards. He is currently assessing my demand for immediate replacement of the nut chez moi and for a downward adjustment to the bill. ers

[One hopes one doesn't have to resort to the branch ploy ]

Gainesy

And the mower's name is .....? Where's Kevin lately?

One is malted up watching the krikit. Why do batsmen practice the shot they have just made?

By the way ... the light of me life ... after the Baroness ... on us holliers in Frogistan.

Radar, that reminds me of a perfect description of such a 'lady', "if she'd been 2 inches taller, she'd have been perfectly fecking round!"

Cool

Thanks all for the finger crossings and good wishes for the neuro app this morning. All went pleasantly albeit a little curiously. The curious thing is that a couple of one's symptoms (classic parky bo11ox) apparently don't usually appear until much later in the condition .. one failed to remind him about the suddenness and peculiar manner of the arrival of said bo11ox and suspects that he has forgotten! One it tempted to send an email doing same but bottom line is one is as one is and emails aren't going to change that... and frankly, one doesn't care over much that one's progress (aka deterioration) is not standard... one has, after all, decided that one shall not deteriorate at all. In furtherance of this one took delivery the other day of a Swiss Balance Ball ... Google for same if this is a unknown quantity. It took a couple of days to inflate and already one is mastering the "sit on and fall off" technique, much to hound's puzzlement and one even tried a pseudo sit-up but as one had to hold on to a strategically placed chair it didn't really do much good - just reminded one that one is very very very unfit

Oh and back in the real world, STS-118 is orbiting happily on her way to link up with the ISS tomorrow, while her crew are inspecting the heat shield
