The face of capitalism

Was horrified to see that P&O have started to charge for life-jackets on the Larne ferry to Cairnryan.  In the panic to evacuate your sinking ship you are expected to fumble around for 20p in order to save your life.   Paupers go down along with the captain I suppose!

Evidence of multi-tasking in men…

Mister media mogul seen here during behind-the-scenes filming at Welshpool air show on Sunday.
1. Switching camera positions
2. Talking on the phone.
So what else?
3. Putting: one foot in front of the other in the style of walking
4. Digesting: a breakfast bowl of Happy Shopper muesli.
5. Thinking: “people know I hate using the phone so why do they keep bloody-well hassling me?”
6. Wishing: I’d gone for a wee when I had the chance.

An electric blanket

Harbinger of a bleak mid-summer

This ageing electric blanket, still plugged in and waiting by my bed will decide *your* summer.  

That’s right.  I took it off the bed but left it on the floor as the weather holds mild.

Should I dare to put it away until next year, guarantee I will have to re-install it again come the weekend.  And the coldest, wettest summer-that-never-was awaits us all.  Do you see my dilemma?

Foresight with hindsight

To save mankind in the future the trouble of having to invent a time machine to come back and assassinate Donald Trump, why not just do for him now? Just saying. 
I’ve got a list, actually, if anyone’s up for it.

Doggy bags

Special thanks to the dog walkers of Meifod this morning. The joyful site of a dog turd swinging in a tree fair warms the heart on a feisty mid-winter morning. And as the low sun glinted off the primrose yellow bag, I was put in mind of fragrant forest walks and the promise of the year to come.

Oh doggy bag, what treasures lie within thee?
