Just try not to fall in...
If he does there may be plenty of floaters to grab onto.
Judging by size of the fish downstream of it, there is something very nutritious in the water. Battle carp.
Happy the weather is great and the garden definitely shaping up. Grass just done by my gardener (ahem!) I've been digging out more turves (back breaking and not good for my old belly) but now the concrete and paving is sparkling bright (pressure cleaned by my neighbour's son), so well pleased.
Book I'm reading has me laughing out loud at the narrative. Police procedural set in Prague. Most interesting with bits of history thrown in - but the detective has the repartee that matches what I find funny and witty so I'm really enjoying it.
It's Lying and Dying, by Graham Brack.
Here's a taster.
Saucy soft porn novels!
Haha! It isn't really! An MP has been associated with a woman who has been murdered. A third party is feeding tidbits of information attempting to blacken the MPs name and it seems others in power at the moment in the Government. Slonsky, the detective (who loved his sausages and beer) is trying to teach a graduate entrant the ways of detective work. Their interactions are hilarious! The above page is as a result of a photo having been passed to the detective, so I'm off to see what happens next. Obviously the MP didn't kill the woman - but who did?
PS Should I delete the image I wonder?
No way - gave me a good laugh!
Phew! Glad about that! Actually it's a great light crime novel. Just what I needed just now.
Sounds good to me.....
Driving home with the dogs in the boot a Volvo comes charging out a side street and only stopped because I didn't. However the Audi driver behind me did stop and flash him to get out the way.....presumably so the Volvo driver could get a good read of my bumper sticker.
Also got a cheap rib roast today....and some more ribs and the outside bit for free after someone asked me to ruin a fore rib roast by cutting the ribeye steaks out of it for them. Last day of offer and there was still loads so I shifted 3 cases of that and 4 cases of lamb legs while training the guy taking over after they make me redundant....follow that!
Went to Helmsley today. Wife, daughter and self. Lunch in a very nice Italian-style eatery their gelati are superb (the real thing).
Then to the National Bird of Prey Centre. Back home for 5.00pm. took Spaniels for a walk on the moor. Rounded off by munching through an enormous 3-cheese lasagne; home made by wife whilst daughter and I did the walk. One feels quite replete.
Couple of hours at 180c should sort that right out
I hate you to pieces!
She says through gritted teeth...
We had locally made sausages with bubble and squeak. Yum yum yummety yum!
I had smoked salmon, new asparagus, jersey potatoes (disappointing) and mixed salad.
It was OK, but the potatoes were a real disappointment. Too young, no taste, processed, packaged and ruined.
That was a good one.....
...hacked it up for carving but I like it that way.
Still got loads left
Saw this in the news yesterday....
....after selling a ton of lice infested Salmon last week. Well maybe not a ton but there was at least a dozen with 3 or 4 lice stuck to each one, despite all the efforts to reduce the lice numbers and clean them off before they get to the consumer things still seem to be getting worse.
I think people should stop buying farmed Salmon but quite often I have ladies of leisure telling each other it is healthy whilst I wait to serve them. It is toxic crap!
If there's one thing I don't like it's underdone meat. I really enjoy a piece of nicely brown beef in a good gravy. Yummm!
No such thing as underdone beef. Brown beef is an absolute abomination, utterly lacking in flavour. You don't need gravy if you've not burned all the flavour out of it to start with...
I disagree with you entirely while defending to the death your right to think that.
You need to try my mums roast. She starts cooking it the week before I think. It sucks all of your life’s juices out of you as you try to chew it.
