Will do so when I'm allowed to drink again! Anti inflammatories I'm taking to fix a sciatica problem forbids any alcohol!

Has Tinpis left us? I knew he was not well but have not heard any news of his passing.

Drank a toast with tea on the common - I'm off alcohol till I'm allowed to socially mingle.

I think I must have missed Tinpis' passing too...

Morning folks, who's for an eye ball straightener ? Double vodka with orange juice, freshly squeezed of course.

“Bed raggled” woman 😳 ? Never heard it called that before. Anyone for a bit of raggling ?

As the day progresses, I have had a nap, and am being guarded by a Pug (Pancake) with one eye. Mrs is drying her hair and one is contemplating launching the drone to see whats happening in the street..

May even go to the Bar, and have a cool beer, or go to the bottle shop and get some warm beer..

A matter of grave concern . . .

It would appear that my wedding ring refuses to behave as it should. I can twist and turn it in the vertical plane but not the horizontal, This is due to a knuckle growing too big for its boots due to the attention, many years ago, of a nasty great rugby prop forward. I shall not go into details . . . . . My wife has suggested having the ring removed, which would be fine if there was room to place a saw or other cutting instrument.

'Tis a concern I have not thought of for more than 40 years, when said item was placed 'pon my finger.

Since we have had no rain for weeks here, we have taken to using a humidifier at night to improve the sleeping environment.

Early this morning it began to rain steadily, thinks I - that will bring the mozzies out in a few days - 30 minutes later I was awakened
by an obviously well fed strategic blood lifter buzzing round me after entering through a small air gap in the sliding door.

Now to the question: how can they get taxi out and get airborne so quickly? No pools of stagnant water lying anywhere and nothing around the property.
Once bitten, etc, etc….

Johnfair,
I'm sure I can cut it off with an angle grinder, well pretty sure. Promise it wont hurt too much, as experience tells me that a 1mm cutting blade cauterises the flesh it cuts instantly.

Ring? You could ring the local crematorium as this must be a problem they frequently address. They could take any gold teeth out too I guess.
Saw a string of those creepy satellites last night. Are they in two close orbits? Some seemed dimmer than the others and appeared to be ' overtaken'.

I had a ring cut off years ago. The jeweller used a very thin bendable metal strip saw inserted under the ring and sawed away until the ring was cut through. Quite painless process.
The ship looks a right old mess this morning, empty bottles and left over food all over the deck. Someone is going to have to clear it up.

Old time Ppruners have reappeared.
Is this the end, someone has feared?
Its gooseberry gin.
That caused all the din.
For absent friends: they all cheered.

They forgot to mention AA SLF - David, also Darren Moore - The Wizard of Oz and Keith Jillings. We aren't sure about Tinpis but one of the OzMods seems to think it is highly likely as he was very unwell.
Right, they say "Nothing ventured, nothing gained" - I'm going to see what happens when I plant some seeds which are well past their sell-by/use by dates. I shall report on any progress or lack of.
Oops! I almost forgot to wish you a good morning Grumps.

I'm aware of that Krystal but Dilys runs a highly efficient AATC along with her apprentice Iolo. Their motto is "No Bird Shall Pass" so with any luck one or two seeds may make it.
AATC - Avian Air Traffic Control
Dilys - small, blue merle, bossy Welsh Collie
Iolo - large black and white teenage Welsh Collie
