Re: Fascinating False Facts?

They were all false.  So sorry to let you down, Sidey.

Nancy, after reading your comment I did another search but I couldn’t find one site that agreed with you.

Was that post fun?  Should I do another like it in the future?

By the way, Kate & Viv: all haggis-lovers are now banned from this blog for being, well, haggis-lovers.*

*Another false fact.  I need the hits.**

**Or to be hit…I can never remember which.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Round

3 May



Spud was a gorgeous baby, marred only by constant grazing to his face.  He fell over at the drop of a hat, and sometimes I didn’t need to drop the hat at all: the day after we moved here he was standing at the back door, thirteen months old, and literally fell out of the house on to the pavement.  I swear he didn’t move to do it (and no, I didn’t push him). 

I thought he was naturally clumsy until the day I freaked at his rolling eye: it rolled round from one side to the other.  I had him at the doctor’s faster than you can say Ugly Baby and it transpired he needed glasses.  He never fell over again, that I’m aware of.  I guess if your eyes and your feet are going in the same direction, you tend not to.

The bottom photo was taken at the top of St Paul’s Cathedral.  Look at his little round glasses – pre-Harry Potter.  He was ahead of the trend.

He was two or three here and he’d just walked all around St Paul’s dome on the outside.  Not alone, obviously; I’m not a neglectful mother: his nine-year old brother took him.

Joke 40

3 May

Three sisters, ages 92, 94, and 96, live together. One night the 96-year-0ld draws a bath. She puts one foot in and pauses. “Was I getting in the tub or out?” she yells.

The 94-year-old hollers back, “I don’t know, I’ll come up to see.” She starts up the stairs and stops. She shouts, “Was I going up or going down?”

The 92-year-old is sitting at the kitchen table having tea, listening to her sisters. She shakes her head and says, “I sure hope I never get that forgetful,” and knocks on wood for good measure. Then she yells, “I’ll come up and help both of you as soon as I see who’s at the door.”
