Have You Met My Friend, The Tinman?

6 May

Unless you’re related to me, I assume you visit this blog because you like a smile in your day.  I do, too, which is why I visit Tinman’s blog.  Here’s a sample of his take on the recent change the end of a story prompt:

…and the Trojans prepared to leave the mighty horse in the main square and retire for the night. Just then, from the belly of the great beast came the echoey sound of a distinctly Greek accent saying “bloody hell, who farted?”


Suddenly Captain Ahab said “feck it, let’s let him go, my arms are getting tired.”

He has many more.  Please go over and say hi.  He’s hilarious.

    Thanks, Tilly.

    I feel honoured.

    And under no pressure whatsoever.

    Oh, and I normally tick “Like” on your posts, but feel that would be really odd on this one ….

    Those are much better than my whimpy, boring ending. Of course the original wasn’t that exciting either.

    Brilliant! Going over there now – thanks Tilly.

    I’ll just chime in and say that I found Mr. Tin while browsing through “postaday” offerings, and then found Ms Tilly Budd’s face constantly in the comments, and was thenceforth directed to a few more smiles each day. 🙂

      This blogging thing is like having an extended family, don’t you think? We all bump into each other on various blogs.

    Thanks for the suggestion.


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
