Boom boom, Ithankyou


When my grandmother was very ill and just before she died,  the doctor said that we must rub a lot of lard onto her back.

She went downhill very quickly after that.

    1. Same to you. I've never liked toffee apples - they fucked up my teeth.

  2. Tom, is that your granny? She looks like you.
    Hope you had a good trip down to Dorset.

    1. My granny would look like the creature from the black lagoon by now. Dorset - thanks for asking, Moll - was a driver's nightmare, thanks to Shepton Mallett declaring independence from the outside world.

      So the return journey was via the 303 - and I ain't talking rifles here.

  5. A bit like my grandmother. She died on her 98th birthday; and we'd only got to the 83rd Bump.
