Some annoying creature had been eating my bulbs so I went out today and bought an ultrasonic pest repeller.

Came back and parked the car. Noticed just across from my house on the road the flattened body of a grey squirrel. Perhaps my bulbs will be uneaten now.

You just know that squirrel assassin & Eric Clapton lookalike James Marchington gets a raging hardon as soon as his fingers touch that rifle.

Good documentary, would recommend. 20221010_215746.jpg

Watched the same programme and said the same thing. 

Mrs a-p (who has always had a wee fancy for that wee sleekit silver fox for 25 years or so):

‘Ocht naw, no my type at all! That wee rat moustache. Euww’. 

I think she’s turning into Isa frae Still Game. But somehow I’ve ended  married to her…

Just watched University Challenge for the first time in ages, mainly because St Andrews University were on.  Was immediately struck by the normally sharp and sometimes intrusive delivery of Jeremy Paxman being impeded due to his Parkinson's Disease onset.  A visible and audible example of how this horrific disease can impact an otherwise cogent and articulate orator.   Chapeau to Paxman for continuing in his role whilst the disease is at an early (??) stage.

In a similar vein, Chris Kamara carrying on broadcasting with speech apraxia. It would have been easy for him to just quit working on TV but he hasn't.

The wife was supposed to visit her pal in early September for a week, but her pal pulled out with about 2 weeks to go. The wife was disappointed. They rearranged the trip for this coming Saturday.

She should be away Saturday to next Sunday. I am still 50/50 if this will go ahead. Her pal is quite flaky and won't think twice about cancelling at the last minute. At the same time, my brain is thinking about my week at home with the big TV, nightly curries and beer - I mean, at home with the kids.

As if the poor wee bugger hasn't had it hard enough already. :(

The perfect set-up for the old joke about him phoning his mum after his first game.

During my research on behalf of His Majesty the King. I witnessed this scene. The owners might regret calling it Liquor and Burn, in the latest circumstances.

It's a pity it wasn't The City on Oldham Street, it could do with being burned down.
