Here we go again happy as can be all good friends and jolly good company. :)

Well the sun is out and there's a bright golden haze on the meadow, well its not a meadow its a couple of fields cross from where I live, but its close enough as their green. So it looks like we are back on the sunny team today as it was rather chilly yesterday evening and I was very tempted to turn the heating on, but declined in the end and put a jumper on instead. Right I have a chap coming around to do some electrical work for me today as I want some extra sockets fitted I should be doing it myself but to be honest I can not be bothered, and he will be so much quicker and I am certain he will not have any trouble getting up and down from the floor like I would. :) I hope you are all waking feel Happy today (shame my names Grumpy) ;) naughty Fred.

A blonde was walking down the street and sees a poster that reads Cruises only £50. So she goes along to the address on the poster and hands the money to the receptionist in the room who then nods to this big burly chap who is reading a paper in the corner, he goes over and knocks the blonde unconscious.

The blonde wakes up and finds she is tied to a log and is floating down the local river, she glances to her right and sees a blonde friend of hers and shouts "Do you think there will serve food on this cruise."

The other blonde replied "They never did last year."

A Naval ditty. As you all know a Royal Toast is always taken standing up, but due to the fact that when King Charles II was returning from exile in Holland on board a naval ship he stood for the toast and he banged his head due to lack of room, so he instructed that from then onwards Royal Navy officers could toast the monarch sitting down. This honour still applies today even when on dry land.

Have a lovely day where ever you are on Sea or Land or maybe even air :) ;) xxx

Chuckling at you Fred. Good cloudy morning to you, very gloomy here, the sun IS trying to make an appearance every now and again though, so I'm sure it will brighten up later. Yes it has turned a little chilly Fred...brrrrr. I've been painting the fence in the garden...more to do later then it should look tidy for the summer. Have a lovely Saturday. :-) xxx

Thanks my lovely little Robin red breast, am I allowed to say breast on here? You go steady out there with that fence, are you painting it or using a stain, either way its an old clothes day for you than, that,s when just as you have it all over the place on you, someone comes to visit out the blue, but I have the feeling(I get it now and again :) that you are the sort that looks great even in an old pair of overalls covered in paint and a sun hat on. Ok then you enjoy your day and maybe you can make out a few days for the next outing but not under canvas, maybe we can all have a sleep over at a stately home this time. Keep smiling xxx :) ;)

I'm painting the fence woodland green Fred, it looks nice too. I may sit on the garden swing with a cuppa and a book if it turns out nice later. :-) xxx

If I get a gap in my window today I will pop up and give you a push, is it a garden swing or a swing in the garden, as there is a difference isn't there ? :) xxx

Hi Fred,

Hope you are getting over your grumps. Sounds like you had a rough night? Aches from the golf still?

Very interesting about the navy and toasting. Doubt many of us land lubbers know that.

Beautiful sunshine but a little chilly here so far.

Thanks for the great funny. Sara xx

Morning Fred,

I enjoyed your joke, and hope your weather improves. I am not rubbing it in or anything, no nothing could be further from my mind but its a lovely day here. So warm and lovely blue skies without a cloud to be seen. Makes a pleasant change for here, so going to sit out for a while.

Hope all your electrical work gets done and out the way.
