"O God, I could be bounded in a nut shell and count myself
a king of infinite space,
were it not that I have bad dreams."
Act II scene ii
Good stuff, warm greetings!
I hope you "got it" Blogoratti. By the way, a "Blogratti" sounds like an Italian motor scooter!
Never mind the rest of it, but are those fish and chips smothered with lots of salt and vinegar, all wrapped in yesterday's Daily Mirror, eaten sitting on the graveyard wall? If they are - you guys certainly know how to entertain a girl (okay "girl" is stretching it a bit, I know) don't you.....!
They don't have "The Mirror" in Stockport CG. It's considered too high-brow.
Blogging goes around comes aroundFunny
"Blogging goes around comes around"... I imagine that Confucius said something very similar!
LOL -- I followed your suggestion, a bit inadvertently, as I visited Parrots when I saw you wrote about it before I realized WHAT you wrote. So, yeah, Stockport here I come! Ha!
"An American in Stockport" sounds like the title of an avant garde novel!
I hereby declare that if I win your most generous prize, Yorkie, I will hand it over to the next person who posts a comment here on your blog re "Shooting Parrots". As instructed/suggested/advised/ordered...I promptly paid a visit to Mr. Parrot; and upon entering his cage, I politely introduced myself. Thank you for pointing me in his direction. :)
Did Mr Parrots squawk "Pieces of Eight! Pieces of Eight!" when you entered his cage? That nut-cracking beak is fearsome isn't it?
I scared the living daylights out of him, Yorkie! He'll never be the same again!
Poor man! All he needed was a cuddle.
I believe the correct spelling in this instance would be 'cuttle'.....
Ha! Ha! That's clever Hilly!
I took the bait as well, although I was already a fan of Shooting Parrots.
Shooting Parrots can get overheated so it is good that he has a fan. Are you electric?
You are a marketing genius in disguise, Neil!
I will be happy to advertise "From My Mental Library" too! I just need to come up with a good slogan..."Reaching the places where other blogs don't go""Time to get your Mental Library ticket" etc..
Oh, please feel free to work on my campaign! I'd love to see what you come up with.
Re your comment on ironing. I think I am one of the few people left in the world who still iron from choice. I quite enjoy it and also enjoy seeing it sitting up on the airer freshly done.
A white van will be heading for Bellerby in the morning Mrs Weaver. It will contain plenty of ironing to keep you happy for hours and hours.
That's funny, because I am one of the few people on this planet who enjoy ironing, too!We could start an ironing club, compare notes and swap pictures of our favourite items to iron :-)
