Cold and Misty

What am I doing up I suppose to be retired, someone should tell Bella Trix the lodger dog what the rules are in this house, I tried but she just laughs at me and say's come on Fred its rise and shine time. Pleased to say the builders have started to replace the walls down Kate's and the new floor is next once the pipes etc are done. Right down to the serious stuff.

When I was down to say goodbye to the Aunt it reminded me of when I was younger and single .

When ever I went to a Wedding the older ones would keep saying your next Fred, your next. But I found a way of getting my own back, when at a funeral I would say Your next, your next.

And then there was a Redhead,a Brunette and a fair haired lady lost in the desert, well they found a lamp and rubbed it. Out popped a genie and granted them one wish each. The redhead wished to be back home, poof ! she was back home. The brunette wished to be back home with her family, poof ! she was home as well. The fair haired lady said " Awwwww I am lonely I wish my friends were here."

Remember folks that Laughter is a tranquilizer without side effects.

Have a great day and thanks for being there.

  • Morning Fred.

    If laughter is a tranquiliser can I go back to bed?

    I like so many really enjoy my morning giggle from you.

    Have a good day


  • No you can not go back to bed sailor get that hammock stowed away and get on deck, or do I have to take you in hand? (sorry forgot where I was for a moment) lol. Have a good day my kracker any thing on the cards for today ? I am off to feed the cats and see the builder at 0830. Tomorrow I have to give some blood and let a nurse stick things all over my body, oh dear its only an ECG but I can dream. Love Fred xxx

  • So funny

    I'm glad the work is underway at Kates, hopefully it won't be too long now and she'll be back home.

    I can imagine Bella getting you up early in the mornings Fred. lol. I bet she want's to be trotting out for her early morning walkies. :-) xxx

  • Morning my lovely giggler, yes that's it Bella wants to go out for a run but she will be lucky as no way can I take her to far as the breath will not allow that at the moment, but I have a friend who does dog walking and I am paying him to take her 3 times a week for an hour plus run on the moors so she will be fine as she also like him and gets excited when she sees him.

    Hope you are alright and getting sorted Lyn as time marches on but memories last for ever. :) Fred xxxx

  • That's good, at least Bella gets a good run Fred and it's lovely to see them stretching those legs and full of energy.

    My daughter's home tomorrow and she's staying with me until Monday, so that will be nice to spend some girlie time with her.

    Yes, I do have some wonderful memories Fred. :-) xxx

  • HI Fred,

    Its coming to something when the idea of an ecg gets the imagination going! You men!

    We wouldnt change you.

    glad youve found a dog walker, exercise is one thing, but only when you feel up to it.

    Love Iris x

  • Hi there Iris I am a bit late coming back to you as been with the builders, glad you don't want to change me as I am to set in my ways, but yes I have a good imagination, but then I am ex Royal Navy submariner.

    xxxFred :)

  • Yes, theres something about a sailor, and you know what sailors are!

    In the Daily Mail today story about a botched building job that caused such damage the house had to be demolished!

    hope all is going well... Only joking. iris x

  • They also say All the nice girls love a sailor, why not some of the naughty ones as well ? xx :)

  • Good misty morn,no fog horns today,getting warmer to go out, I thought I was the only one that went to funerals and had the nerve to say" Your Next" after always nagging me to get a ball n chain(married) that is. Thought I'd get them back but it didn't go down to well No sence of humar!! I couldnt stop laughing but then I am naughty. It's the only way to be .nip down to see the sea later the Suns out!

  • Please you are just like me with a wicked sense of humour and I agree you got to laugh as its better than crying. Hope you went down to the sea for a paddle. xxx Fred :)

  • Wet and murky here in London with high pollution levels. Oh joy!

    Will try not to breath today! Or maybe that's not such a good idea.

    You should have read Bella the rules of the house before letting her lodge with you. But then again maybe she's not such a good listener!

    Have a good day. xx

  • The sun is out here in Devon and its warming up. Please do not stop breathing we need you with us butter-fly . Now as for whether Bella is a good listener or not I can not comment on how a females mind works !
