The song "Naughty Samuel Peeps" (Kenneth Williams?) comes to mind but can't find it anywhere

Been busy with the bungalow and also been away so not had time to read in. Susie had her sutures removed today and is fine. Having gained no weight at all for six weeks in spite of a serious attempt to eat me out of house and home she has excelled herself by gaining 800g/1lb 12ozs since the day of her op.
Have any puffins returned yet?

Great news about Susie. No puffin sightings on Burhou yet, although we got all of a dither over a couple of Cyclops bunnies the other day!

Welcome back DX, hope all is well. Hugs for you, gut tickle for the dog -- or the other way around if you're that way inclined!!

Puffin nuffin.

The England fiasco reminds me of the day when they played Ireland at footie. The Irish team coach is on the way to Wembley when Roy Keane tells the driver to stop and tells the lads. "Stop off in this pub and I'll beat the English on me own."

So they do. Bugger, no sports on telly but the scrolling news thingy is working. Guinnesses acquired. 1545 local. Scrolling news. Half time. England 0 Ireland 3. More Guinnesses. Good old Roy. 1645 local. Full time. England 1 Ireland 3. Eh?

Keane comes in.

"What happened?"

"I got sent off in the 50th minute."

Tanks!!

Stockpicker and Stockette in residence. They came bearing gifts. Geranium youngsters to replace the ones killed by Wiking last month, and Sigurd Highland Park whisky for the killer.



The Scottish presence is a wonderful excuse to do enjoyable thing like a guided tour of the Oslo Opera House today, and a new exhibition at the National Gallery tomorrow.

4mastacker, friend's the manager of the Dutch team, so yes

Juud - Highland Park distillery is just a few miles down the road (well, across the water to be strictly accurate) from me. Unfortunately I cannot stand the smell or taste of any spirits, it's saved me a fortune over the years and Mrs Ricardian always had a very pleasant time at Burns Nights when I surreptitiously passed my whisky to her.

Well, well, well ... the things you find when you're casually watering the garden! I've been renting this place for over three years now and wondering why the grass just would NOT grow in a certain area despite tonnes of water being thrown on it. Today I found out why. I didn't realise I had the hose on such a strong jet but when I looked at the little hole it had made in the "grass" I could see that there was something there more bricky than grassy.

Assuming in was a random brick that had been left there at some stage and become overgrown, I got my spade and started to dig it out. This is what I discovered ...





... yup, it's a submerged paved area! Completely overgrown by grass over goodness knows how many years, it was well hidden and I would have had no idea it was there if not for this morning's accidental strong jet of water. I shall do some more digging/scraping and see how far this extends. At least it will mean less grass to cut in the summer!!

Morning all
Rain and it's forecast for the rest of the day.

How do you manage to kill geraniums Juud. They're practically bomb proof.
Nice to hear Stockies name on here. Please give her my kindest regards Juud.

If the weather isn't too bad we may pop down to Tentsmuir later. Mrs HF's mother's ashes were scattered there so it'd be a chance to say hello.

Prepare yourself for another
"Have you thought of trying to stop smoking Mr D"
(Because if you do that's another tick on the sheet for which we get paid)

Morning. Lovely one here.

Of course Drapes has thought about giving up smoking, so that box can be ticked. What it needs is the supplementary, "And have you instantly thought, 'Buggerit, I'm carrying on.'"?

What a daft question.

Yes, please send hugs to Stockie, miss her, but am not going to open a farcebook account to keep in contact. The Man has enough info about me already.

Bluey, while retired I have been watching the telly equivalent of penny-dreadfuls. You do realise there's a minimum of one body under those bricks don't you?

Off for coffee, newspapers and a chat with the local loony who stands outside Marks telling people his Dad owns it and you welcome to take items for free. People must have difficulty telling me and the nutter apart!!
