Hi Jack

A smashing clip :-*  Did you happen to mention to Bonnie that you have a friend in Bletchley?  I wondered if she had it in mind that if she dug down far enough she could perhaps go past China & pay me a visit :laugh:

Perhaps this might be a good idea?  >:D
  or this

Blue is incorrigible but he does make me laugh :laugh:  Great cartoons!

I'm sure I must have posted this before but I couldn't find it.  Anyway it really tickled me so if it's a repeat apologies :laugh:
It's an exchange between Qantas pilots & engineers.
Pilots: Number 3 engine missing. Engineers: Engine found on right wing after brief search.
Pilots: Aircraft handles funny. Engineers: Aircraft warned to straighten up, fly right, and be serious.
Pilots: Target radar hums. Engineers: Reprogrammed target radar with lyrics.
Pilots: Mouse in cockpit. Engineers: Cat installed.
And perhaps, the best Qantas joke... Qantas Pilot: Noise coming from under instrument panel. Sounds like a midget pounding on something with a hammer. Engineers: Took hammer away from midget.

No work for me now until a week on Monday :-)

Hi Pen,

Are you off on your annual jaunt?

Great post.  Spurred me on to try a bit better today.

  Bonnie knows Bull

     

I asked Blue what he thought of glass coffins.  “Remains to be seen”, he said.

Blue told me he thought his bank was going broke.  He tried five different ATMs today and they’ve all told him they have “Insufficient Funds”.  I’m not saying that Blue has a line of credit problem but when he went to the bank for a loan, they wouldn’t lend him a pen to fill in the application.  His business “Cooking with Spices” has not been successful. His bank has called in the bay leafs.

And I’ll leave you with one of Blue’s poems
Mary had a little pig,
She kept it fat and plastered;
And when the price of pork went up,
She shot the little bastard.

Cheers, Jack

Hi Jack

What a smashing post - I really enjoyed it & it made me howl with laughter :laugh:  You've set the bar very high!!

I'm afraid mine's going to be sadly lacking this evening as Zoe & I have been to London today & I'm cream crackered  :-Y
We pre-booked tickets for the British Museum & the National Gallery.  Neither of us fancied the tube so we walked to the museum this morning from Euston station.  Not too bad only 15/20 minutes.  After a couple of hours there we set off on foot to Trafalgar Square for the gallery.  About another 20 minutes.  We spent about an hour & a half there & set off back to Euston with the hopes of catching the 4.15 back to Bletchley.  It took us nearly an hour so, unfortunately,  we missed the train. We didn't factor in that the sat navs on our phones were a bit naff & we went a bit wrong & also trying to cross the roads in London is a nightmare :(  We got in about 5.30 & had sausage & chips.  I've got a bottle of pink plonk in the fridge for a restorative tipple in a while :)

I'm not off on my usual jaunt to David's this year.  I'm going to see how the virus situation pans out & hope to visit in the Spring.

Think I need to borrow your matchsticks this evening!!

I also enjoyed Jack's post although i would have liked to have seen a short video of him trying to join Bonnie sitting on top of the bull.

I am not as good with the bull as I used to be, Les. ;D

Hi Pen,

I did a quick calculation and I estimate your walks between the Station, Museum, Gallery and back by the shortest route was 3.5 miles, plus all the walking you did in the attractions.  So I reckon you had every right to be knacked.

I am a member, (no, not a country member), of a Facebook group where we can all share pics, organise catch ups, ask questions and keep in touch with the Taaffeite Family.

Yesterday I gave a report on Bonnie.

We think she is settling in very well. We now have had two nights on which she has not made a commotion. When she is awake in the daytime she is in perpetual motion with an unquenchable thirst for games and for investigation of anything new including areas outside those assigned to her. We believe we have plugged all the gaps but she shows an intelligence way beyond her age and so we keep a careful eye on her.

She is very affectionate but when she is tired gets a bit nippy and is not above throwing a tantrum when she is confined to her pen. She enjoys socialising and so far has charmed people outside Bunnings, PetBarn, the Mount Cotton IGA, and the butchers at Cleveland.

She has her first play-date with Dusty tomorrow and we are looking forward to that.


My daughter described the event today

Bonnie came to play with Dusty today. After a short sniffing expedition around the arena there was puppy smackdown wrestling action for over two hours until Dusty finally conceded defeat! she well and truly hammered him  . Her best moves were leaping into him off the stair ramp like a springbok and fully body slamming him when he went off quietly for a wee  . I couldn’t get a good video because they ran sooo fast!

Jess the breeder:  Connie and Zelda hate losing, it’s hilarious

Zelda’s owner: Girl power

Hi Jack

I'm still recovering from all that walking yesterday!  My legs & feet are aching a bit!!

Bonnie definitely likes to be top dog!  I think she should be known as Bonnie "the Rock" or "Ninja" Bonnie :laugh:  She tickles me! She's obviously brought June & yourself a huge amount of pleasure in such a short space of time :)

            

Leave you with a couple of naff jokes ;D
I got into a fight with a chip shop owner, we were wrestling on the floor and one of his assistants chucked yellow gunk over us, as I got up the owner pushed me and I fell into the fryer and in that moment I knew i'd been battered.

Did you hear about the sumo match happening at the prison tomorrow?
They're going to bring in professional sumo wrestlers and pit them against the fattest inmates but honestly I don't even know if the pros outweigh the cons.

Off to the kitchen to see what I can find :-H

Hi Jack

Work for me today as our weekend lady is still poorly.  It's been quite busy so the morning's gone quickly.  Looking forward to my egg & tomato sarnie & a cuppa in a few minutes :-H
It's not so bad as I still have my week off to look forward to so I can't complain!

         

Got a rumbly tum :laugh:

Hi Pen,

I couldn’t help noticing you and Bonnie have something in common.  You are both food obsessed.  ;D

Me too. 

While shopping for a bathroom scale, I found one that tracks not only weight but also body fat, bone mass, and water percentage. I nixed that one in favor of a low-tech model. As I told the salesperson, “I don’t need to be depressed four ways; one is quite enough.”

Did you hear about the Mexican restaurant that only serves Indian food?
Answer: Turns out the chef is a naan-conformist!

Must go before the jokes get wurst.
Cheers, Jack

I was playing golf with my son and was several strokes in arrears when we came to the 8th tee. Halfway down the fairway was a large conifer guarding the green.
I told my son that the last time I played this hole I hit the ball over the tree and landed on the green.
He teed up and took a mighty swing only to see his ball bounce off the tree and land just a few yards in front of him.


Perhaps I should have told him the last time I played this hole the tree was only 3ft high.
 >:D

Can't argue with you there Jack!  Well I could but I suspect I'd lose :laugh:
Liked your jokes ;D

Looking forward to slumping in my comfy chair in front of the box with the remains of my pink muck  :-Y

Hi Pen,

Had a busy day yesterday so went to bed exhausted.

I just woke up and heard this piece of philosophy on the radio

Confucius say

Man who run in front of car is tired
Man who run behind car is exhausted


Is that serendipity?
Cheers, Jack
