Oh to be in Holland when the daffodils are out


My friend has been playing with a new app on his phone. First of all I thought how much like Hitler he looks with a few minor additions, but then I realised he looks more like Bruno Ganz playing Hitler.

Arundhati Roy was on Desert Island Discs this morning. She is spectacularly beautiful, but I have always been a sucker for dark eyes and black hair. She is a beauty even by Indian standards.

I sent the above picture to my freind Thomas, who is currently on a little break at Köln with his in-house dental technician (the one who lives for Star Wars conventions). I would not normally send pictures of a Hitler nature to Germans, but since he himself has sent me quite a few - cats and other animals which look like Hitler, etc. - I knew he would not react badly. The best one he sent was a house which looked like Hitler, with a dark, sloping roof and windows all in the right places. Everyone usually remembers Herr H. having black hair, but when you watch the colour footage of the Nuremburg rallies, he does, in fact, have dark red hair, or at least that is the way it looks.

I'm off on a Mother's Day roast lunch this afternoon. I am looking forward to it because I missed dinner last night by staying out drinking with one of the grandchildren. Everyone else is going so they thought it would be a bit mean to leave me out, even though I don't currently have a mother.

I was surprised to find it was an hour later when I got up this morning, but at least I won't have to wait until the real 4.30 to have lunch. You know the worst thing about this time of year? All those bloody daffodils.

  1. Just been out to two National Trust gardens, and the reason, huge swathes of various daffodil varieties - loved it.

  2. On a good note: The app gave your friend some hair. Does he have any in real life? (Eyebrows don't count.)

    1. What he does have he shaves off. It is what balding men do these days.
