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.

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!",

FLUNDLE: A MIXED UP BUNDLE OF FUN!!

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!!

TRICK OR PRICK!!

Teachers are heroes. There is no doubting that. 

I take my hat off to them because they work with children, and they also seem to enjoy their work. Strange, hey?

There was one teacher, though, who wasn't too keen on me. He battled with my total non-comprehension of anything mathematical. My gormless expression must have frustrated him beyond belief. So much so that he lost all patience with me one day, and hurled a piece of chalk at me, yelling, 

"Stop sitting there like a stuffed owl."

LIGHTS OUT, LAUGHS IN!!!

On my hike down memory lane, I stumbled across this gem.......... LIGHTS OUT, LAUGHS IN! Some kids are absolute little terrors and screaming adverts for birth control. Other kids are ok and great for entertainment value and other things, like bringing one's spectacles, or fetching the newspaper, or performing some such service. Grandchildren, however, are … Continue reading LIGHTS OUT, LAUGHS IN!!!

ALBERT FALLS AND SO DO I

On my hike down memory lane, I stumbled across this gem.......... ALBERT FALLS AND SO DO I! To house sit for my sister and her game warden husband, was an excellent escape for Laura and me, and one we enjoyed. On one occasion, we were looking after their house at Albert Falls, in Kwa-Zulu Natal. … Continue reading ALBERT FALLS AND SO DO I!!!

TOILET OF TERROR!

The outhouse was a simple brick construction built around a very deep hole, with a crude brick and wood seat over the crater. The roof made of corrugated iron rattled in the wind. When it rained the drops hammered down fon the metal creating a deafening din.

Using them was an interesting experience.

FAIRY FUN AND FANTASY!

How many of us have played around with our children, asking what they wanted to be when grown up? Making suggestions of different, very masculine professions for our boys, such as Doctor, or Pilot. Well click the link below, to find out what my grandson wanted to be when he grew up!
