Bluey, punning about cemeteries is a grave error.

Inter alia, I think this pun thing is a plot to bury any grave news.

Lovely sunny day here. A chilli has been fettled using this year's crop.
Spot on with the heat for a change.

Going to an Irish Wedding celebration in the Village later, they is starting about now, may have started, and the idea is a procession of Tapas until 22.00 when it's Paella time. Dunno when the traditional fight will start.
We don't know anyone, Senior Management did the make-up for the bride and two others.

The fight will start just after 22.00 when the bride decides the best man is Paella. The old ones are still the best.

In a large Civil Service office a new lad started, a very sensitive, caring soul. After a couple of months he took me on one side and said "You've had a lot of tragedy in your life haven't you"
Puzzled, I asked him to explain.
He said "You've been to a funeral nearly every week - sometimes twice a week - since well before Christmas and now it's the middle of February"
I had to strive hard to keep a straight face as I explained that I was a church organist and that I didn't actually know any of the deceased.

He..he. Have fun Wodrick.

Been to quite a few Irish weddings. Not uncommon for arguments to start.

Another hour and will be at the Wok Asiatico for a China Knees buffet....then drinks afterwards at Half an Orange. Mrs IB is duty driver from there.

Just taken delivery of a present of a case of Cruzcampo Gran Reserva 1904, 6.4%

Please be quiet in the morning.

Happy birthday Ibbie.

Back on steroids so all this talk of food is making me hungry, will have to go and raid the fridge or chase down a cow or two.

Given that many folk from time to time take umbrage, I was wondering who gave umbrage for it to be taken.

I have never knowingly given umbrage, but somebody must or nobody could take it...

Who is that?

Belated Happies Mr Ibbie.

According to Mr D's picture, the robbery took place at Kenton. Nowt's changed there over the years. Probably the great-great-grandads of the present day chavs.

Lasagne and garlic bread on the menu tonight.

I always thought that it was the village in the Chiltern Hundreds that MPs go to when they've been caught out and have to resign and leave the House of Commons, stumping off grumpily into the outer darkness.

Hmm, interfering with His Majesty's Mail is a really serious offence if I recall correctly. Did they catch the villains?

Funny thing superstition. In Honkers they built a block of flats with one section overlooking a graveyard and they could not rent them to locals for love nor money, but one of my gweilo mates was happy to live in a good flat at a reduced rent. In our block there were no flats with 4 in the number, so no fourth or 14th floors.

Just had a thought that people can take offence and you won't necessarily know, but if they take a fence your garden is open to all.

Perhaps like in quiz show "Only Connect", they should use Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphs on the doors

... all of the superstitions about those have been long forgotten

Yer robbing the Royal Mail was heavily frowned upon had he or indeed she been caught would have been the Albert Pierrepoint bungee jump forrem.
