"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
What an excellent cartoon..... All it needs is a mobile phone in your hand !! ( see previous comment! )
The badger stole it!
Yep, that seems to cover the whole story. Good one !
I needn't have written yesterday's post then.
Looks like a good start to a children's book
Surely you mean an adults' book!
You are older and fatter in real life xxxxx
Speak for yourself Chubby Checker!
My bank manage (in the days when they existed) went out for his evening walk but decided to take a different path to his usual one. On The Wirral you are never a million miles from civilisation (as you pointed out on your walk). He had a serious fall and lay there unable to contact anyone. After a couple of hours his wife started to worry and sent out search parties on all his usual paths. The police became involved. Searches ensued. Eventually by pure luck and well after dark a police dog found him. If you had snapped your leg how quickly might you have been found? Of course as you'd told Lady P where you were going you'd presumably have been found anyway.I say this simply because the mobile phone's you so dislike have their uses. I keep my OS and other maps on the phone too (ie a use in addition to emergencies) and I find that very good particularly as my location is superimposed on the map.
You offer such wise advice Graham but I am foolish. I can't help identifying with the mass of humanity who operated pretty successfully before the mobile phone plague infected the world. I may live to regret it but I think I will continue in my old-fashioned way.
Oh YP...how talented you are! and you really should have an emergency phone on you perhaps.
Maybe instead I will have a microchip inserted in my arm so that I can be tracked down by helicopters.
LOVE the drawing. Didn't realize you had that talent too.
I can also make farting noises by creating a vaccum between the palms of my hands!
The book cover is perfect! I can't wait for the book to come out!
Pardon Bonnie? That is just meant to be a one-off cartoon!
But it would make a lovely book! In fact you could turn your blog into a comic strip detailing the adventures of Yorkshire Pudding!
You should be my manager Bonnie!
Ha! I love it! Especially the ornery badger.
I like the word "ornery" though it is rarely used on this side of the Atlantic.
Call Ghostbusters! I'm of no help!
You are too far away Lee. You need a private jet.
That's why you need to call Ghostbusters!!!!
A great cartoon, and I agree with those who said it'd make a good book cover.Speaking of books, I found that the blog "Gorgeous Yorkshire" has linked to the Bosh! book on Waterstone's website:http://www.gorgeousyorkshire.co.uk/veganuary-in-yorkshire/#comment-22677In the post, it says: "Top tip for a good vegan recipe book is Bosh."
Thanks for that Meike. I will let my son know.
I would suggest a cheap flip phone as well. It's not that expensive and could save your health or even your life someday. I see you have already nixed that idea, but maybe you'll come around to it if you have a closer brush with mortality on some future walk :)
