One or two titchy items…

But first…
Dulltown,UK: Today’s dictionary words are: commensurability, reddendum, tonant, intervocalic, attrite, smorzando, and xzster. Please have these words looked up and placed in suitable sentences ready for Professor Mouldie first thing after breakfast tomorrow morning. Should the professor turn up and conduct the lesson wearing a rubber Donald Trump mask, you should not let this distract you from your studies.

Excuses for being late. No. 311.
I’m sorry I’m late, but I had an unexpected tussle with an escaped python.

A single overheard, and possibly misheard, remark:
‘Just a small book shovel…’
I suppose if you have a lot of books and no bookcases you might need a couple of shovels, perhaps one for small books and another sturdier one for large volumes, just to keep the place tidy.

‘The device will impact the ship’s hull in one minute and twelve seconds Captain.’
‘In one minute and twelve seconds Mr Spock? That’s a very precise figure.’
‘Indeed Captain, and it is accurate.’
‘But Mr Spock, is that, one minute and twelve seconds from the start of your warning, or is it from the end of it? Perhaps you should have said, ‘Mark!’ or ‘From now!’… or something?’
‘Well Captain, I thought that you would assume that I had timed it from my initial…’
Bang!… Bleep bleep bleep bleep… Red Alert!… Red Alert!…

Yes, I’m thinking of changing my name to Jay Nostin-Bux.

Aha! I don’t seem to be getting much spam in my comments box these days, but this morning there was a very nice item. It seems to be from someone called Diamondbacks jerseys:

Well, Thank you Diamondbacks jerseys, I will certainly bear in mind what you have said, and I do hope to hear from you again soon.

An observation:
The road from Dulltown-Minor back to Dulltown was unusually congested and the bus was crawling along and stopping and starting.
A moment: Listening to Robert Johnson singing Terraplane Blues on my MP3 player whilst watching a kestrel flapping and hovering as it was busy hunting a nearby green field.

A reasonably amusing item:
I once heard that during WWII the BBC banned the playing of the song Deep in the Heart of Texas over the radio, it was because people working in the factories would join in with the catchy tune, and when they sang, The stars at night, are big and bright, (bang bang bang bang!) they would inadvertently smash the machines up with their hammers.

A single overheard remark:
‘I do like the smell of cut grass and thyme…’

  1. If the professor does insist on wearing the Trump mask, then he should be prepared to face the consequences…… 😀 And is a book shovel a *thing*? Because I could really do with one.
