  5. 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.

    1. 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.

    1. Maybe instead I will have a microchip inserted in my arm so that I can be tracked down by helicopters.

    1. Pardon Bonnie? That is just meant to be a one-off cartoon!

    2. But it would make a lovely book! In fact you could turn your blog into a comic strip detailing the adventures of Yorkshire Pudding!

    1. I like the word "ornery" though it is rarely used on this side of the Atlantic.

  11. 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:

    In the post, it says: "Top tip for a good vegan recipe book is Bosh."

  12. 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 :)
