Time to pass wind

Good evening all,



Firstly let me apologise for the lack of recent postings upon my blog but between father being readmitted and then turfed out once more from hospital, a host of household chores and the dreaded work I really have not had time to fart, let alone pay much attention to the world of blogging (my loss entirely and not yours I suspect).


The last few days have been hectic to say the least with ol’ String vest going down hill rapidly after ignoring all sound advice and suffering from dehydration and a urine infection due to failing to drink any where near the amount of fluids required. I saved his rollicking until he was fit to return home, but then I’m somewhat ashamed to say he got both barrels somewhere on the lines of if you won’t look after yourself why the hell should the rest of us bother? Harsh I know, but born from frustration that he’d skipped through a very severe operation only to let things go by not following the simplest advice afterwards. To be honest though my words to him may well have cast me as the black sheep (once again) but they do seem have done the trick and that is all that matters.



So this quick post is just to let you know that I’m back on the keyboard and with a few days off work for the coming week hopefully I’ll have some decent musings for you all in my more usual vein. Oh one tiny piece of news is that I’ve purchased a new air rifle, yes with my hard earned cash – smelling salts please. I’ll fill you in over the next few days, but for now there’s just this photo for you to surmise over (the new one is top of picture)






Tara for now,

John

Sometimes you have to be willing to say the things others don't want to hear. Hope your dad gets back on track. Have fun with the new toy also.

Looking forward to hearing about your new pre-charged!

Best Regards,

Well don't keep us in suspence! Tell us about the rifle! You can pass wind later.

Morning SBW,
And yes all is well thank you ;-)

Hey Bill,
Seems like I’m the only one of me Pa’s offspring who’s willing to say these things – hence the black sheep tag I guess, cheers for the comments.

Hi Albert,
I’ll add some more detail in the next posting, could be trouble ahead for them pesky wabbits this summer!

Le Loup,
Patience my friend, patience

All the best,
John
