PUTTING HIS FOOT IN IT

My dad was a great guy. He overcame many an obstacle in his life, one of which was losing his foot in a mine. He was inspecting the dynamite charges set in the wall of rock designated for blasting. When some idiot lit them prematurely without giving my father time to scramble to safety. Read more---------> by following the link NEW BLOG POST LIVE!!!

UNDER HIS HAND!!!

The spider probably came in with some bananas we had bought, because he is not native to Africa. The Brown Recluse Spider likes to hide away, in dark corners, or under stuff like couches, or cupboards, or even, sometimes, beds.

OWLS: Friend or Fiend??

THIS WEEKS STORY: OWLS: FRIEND OR FIEND?? There are many different beliefs about owls. Some are so stupid they're laughable, such as the one that if an owl fixes its eyes on you and you walk around the tree it's sitting in three times, it will end up wringing its neck.

INTUITION: A MOTHERS GIFT FROM GOD?

THIS WEEKS STORY: INTUITION: A MOTHERS GIFT FROM GOD? One awful day though he nearly took too high a chance with his young life.

THE SOUND OF SILENCE!!!

Come to think of it. Maybe those bath interruptions were not the worst, perhaps those that ripped me from my slumbers were. The rage that would engulf me on these occasions would be dizzying. I imagined him, or her,
giggling at the other end of the line, absolutely delighting in my frustration and fury.

The calls were beginning to affect my health. The constant interruption of my sleep was tiring me out. I was becoming irritable. All I wanted was to have a good night's sleep but found even when the phone did not ring, I still lay awake, waiting for, and dreading the sound of its bell.

UH, WHICH DITCH?

" Stop. Stop!", we yelled, but Dad carried on reversing,

" It's okay! I can see!" he snapped, somewhat irritated by us.

" No! No! Stop!" We yelled in frantic unison, but he carried on, completely ignoring us.

" I can see! Dammit!" he yelled back at us.

Then, putting his elbow and head out the window, to get a better look, he said, rather angrily" Shut up, all of you, I know what I am doing!"

We could see how close he was to the ditch and carried on shouting,

" No Dad, Stop, stop, STOP!",

On my hike down memory lane, I stumbled across this gem.......... FLUNDLE: A MIXED UP BUNDLE OF FUN! Some people in this world have an almost mystical affinity with animals. They love our four-footed friends profoundly and unconditionally, preferring to spend time with furry friends rather than bitchier humans. Laura was one of these folk. … Continue reading FLUNDLE: A MIXED UP BUNDLE OF FUN!!

On my hike down memory lane, I stumbled across this gem.......... EYE CAN SEE YOU!

It went something like this, There was once a lazy, one-eyed farmer, who, although insisted … Continue reading EYE CAN SEE YOU!!
