A few small but pithy items…

But first…
Dulltown, UK: Today’s unusual pencil sharpener is the one shaped like the sound of a cow mooing in the dead of night…

Excuses for being late. No. 354.
I’m sorry I’m late, but I was picking the bay leaves out of my curry.

A single overheard remark:
‘Look, you don’t have to have a religious bone in your body Jenny…’

An observation:
Almost everyone in town today was wearing intense black-framed spectacles.

‘What’s that you are drawing with your new pen?’
‘It’s my map.’
‘Oh? And what’s that bit you just did?’
‘It’s an incline…’
‘I know, but what does it represent?’
‘What does it represent?…’
‘As I said, an incline…’
‘Ah, so it’s an ink line incline then?’
‘Of course…’

Yes, I’m thinking of changing my name to Neil Enth-Boots.

How about another piece of choice spam from my comments box? This one seems to be from someone called Willia:
If you pack your camp out website to visit residence, depart several logs and a few kindling for the upcoming outdoor camping group that comes along. When you have at any time reached your site in the evening you understand how hard it may be to find firewood. It’s very wonderful pay out-it frontward action that may possibly assist a lot more than you can think of.
Well, thank you Willia, I have carefully noted down what you have said, and I shall pass it on to others should the opportunity present itself. Don’t hesitate to get in touch again – I can take any amount of this interesting twaddle.

And always remember the old saying – A trouble shared, is a trouble doubled…

A single overheard remark:
‘Don’t you dare put your shake there!…’

    Camping is it? Definitely not my thing….ditto for finding firewood….firewood, what’s that? In Washington, when it’s cold, the officials institute a “burn ban” which makes it illegal to warm yourself using a fire unless you have absolutely no other source of heat available.

      Gosh, a fire ban!
      It is good Green advice though…
      In that country town of Beverley just north of Dulltown that I have mentioned, coal fires are still allowed – the occasional distinctive smell of the smoke in the air zooms me back to my childhood days…
