So, who wants to help ... to rattle on in the cellar?

Morning folk

Bacon butties on the table

Fresh bread on the table


#7504

Excellent thought.

Orf to the beak-fettler soon.

I hope you have less trouble than I have had in that department wee birdie

Good mornings.

I discovered last night that another person who was at the convention on 2nd and 3rd has had a stonking cold all week; that might explain where I got it from. Get together a hundred or so people from all over the country and the Furrin Germs invade the system.

I feel fractionally better this morning so I am trying the experiment of not taking a Sudafed and we’ll see what happens…


#7507

Could be worse, Fishers. Could be people with [shudder] children.


#7508

We get those too.


#7509

Beak still sharp and suitable for picking up of unconsidered trifles (also gin). Just waiting for the x-rays. I do like the way they scurry out if the room when they’re firing it up, even though I know why.


#7510

It’s quite a lot easier to come home all unknowing with an undesired cold than a superfluous child, though.


#7511

Hmmm

As I see it a lot of parents would be only too pleased to palm off their little darlings on any poor fool around


#7512

“Funny, I’m sure my backpack wasn’t this heavy earlier.”


#7513

If it’s the Cockytail-mixer backpack, it could always be a full bottle of summat

No

Me neither…

#7514

That would be rather more useful, at least in the short term.


#7515

Hmmm

The cockytail backpack is a thing of beauty and is supremely useful


#7516

Yeah, but much better when filled with gin than when it’s filled with childer.


#7517

One could train them to mix drinks, I suppose: ‘they’d be putti in my hands’

Sorry. Don’t know what came over me.


#7518

Just train them to pour Pitchers, Gus

That’ll do fer starters

Medicinal Summats all round, methinks

Night all.


#7520

Tsweep Well, Dunnock

I hope that Fishy does too

Er, why are you reversing in? (I’ve seen hens try that; the results are not usually conducive to calm and peaceful repose…)


#7522

To get the ol’ fevvers properly fluffed up for a chilly night.

This morning itizz foggy enough that the other side of the valley is Gone.
