Flumble Tummies

I wrote about 250 words today at my grand daughter's Fayre, Mother-in-law's and Waitrose. I have decided to put SAASA 3 on Amazon even though I can't find the original picture for the cover.

Today's short story is:

I want to write something funny.

I need to write something funny.

I'm not going to write, "Something funny" even though I just have.

Mmmmm, what can I write.

A rhyme maybe?

A vision of pulchritude my dear,
Even though it rhymes with beer.
It's beauty that you look to see,
On the outside usually, no longer like me.

That's funny enough for now.

Bye :)

It was my 26th anniversary today. We went to Starbucks and had a coffee. I didn't do any writing, I played a game instead. Looked at the new restaurants on Monk's Cross but ended up having a take away Chinese instead.

Today's joke is:

I slept like a log last night.... Woke up in the fire place!

After work today I walked to Waitrose and got my free coffee. It was a latte and wasn't half bad. I was also able to write 200 words or so of SAASA 5. I also got the Daily Mail free for the WWI paper inside it.

Today's joke is:

So I met this gangster who pulls up the back of people's pants, it was Wedgie Kray.

Today I took the gramophone that my parents bought my sister and I 40 years ago to let my grandchildren hear it. At one point my daughter asked me to turn it down! (It has no volume switch) so I had to put a tea towel in the horn to make it a little quieter. I played lots of rock and roll hits, Little Richard, Bill Haley etc.

Today's joke is:

Why don't penguins fly?

They're not tall enough to be pilots!

USB Transfer

I found my old phone yesterday and a charger. I recharged it and then looked for a USB lead to transfer the photos off it. I decided to check if the picture I wanted was on there, it wasn't. My son said it was on his old memory card, but I can't find it. It is the picture for Sid and Arthur's Steampunk Adventure!

I am stumped!

Today's joke is:

What do Hippy horses eat?

Hay, Man!

Elven Princess

On Saturday I inked a colour picture of an elven princess for my granddaughter. I didn't take any brushes or distilled water so I had to make do with what I could find there.

Yesterday I bought 300 x 78 records to use with my old gramophone, I also bought 200 needles to play them. I also found out yesterday that you are only supposed to use a gramophone needle once before you discard it!

Today I picked up my new glasses (had a free cup of coffee there) and went to the bank. I then walked to Waitrose to wait for my wife and managed to write 500 words of SAASA 5.

Today's joke is:
The roundest knight at King Arthur's court was Sir Cumference. He gained his weight from eating too much pi!

Pixie Town

It was my mum's funeral today. I read the poem out that she wrote when she was about 11:

Pixie Town

In Pixie Town there is a fair,
There are crowds and crowds of pixies there,
Suddenly they heard a band, and a pixie put up his hand,
And said, "Look over there, there is a crowd,"
And some said aloud,
"It's alright," shouted the coconut man,
"Someone's been knocked out with a leg of lamb!"

May she rest in peace.
