Self-Inflating Lazy Bags


To my knowledge, two of you bloggers have come to visit me in the flesh at the gallery and I hope I didn't disappoint.

One lady just marched up to me and said, "Are you Mr Stephenson?" Confronted by this forthrightness, what could I say but "Yes"?

She said that she follows me, Cro, Rachel and John, adding that she thought we were all very different from each other. That has to be the understatement of 2016.

The other was a man who pretended to look around the gallery for a while, then came up to me and asked, "Have I read about this exhibition on a blog somewhere?" Ok, if he was going to be cagey, so was I. I answered, "I think it has been mentioned on a couple of blogs..." and he shot off to try and find his wife in the middle of the Christmas Market.

On the other side of the street, there is a company selling things called, 'Self-Inflating Lazy Bags'.

Plenty of scope for Christmas Panto Mother-in-Law jokes there.

  1. Why, you may ask, have they painted the section of panelling above the top alcove shelf a dark grey, when all else is white? Because they are bloody artists, that's why.

  3. And did she write a blog too?

    No jokes about mother-in-laws, please: I am a happy one with a wonderful Daughter-in-Love (I am thankful for that every day, because it happens seldom to mothers of "Apple-of-my-eye-Only-Son").

  6. I wonder how many of your blog readers came to visit the exhibition but didn't present themselves; maybe the two were not the only ones?

    1. Yes, it has been worth putting up, and still has a day to go.

  8. You're practically a celebrity! Point of interest: when asked who their favourite "celebrity" or "famous person" is, many kids now name YouTubers as their favourites.(Not actors or singers).
    I hope the gallery showing was very successful and much money was made! -Jenn

  10. Grey or no, thanks for the quick video of the shell. Would there have been a candle that close to the top of the cupboard, back in the day. It seems a little affected.

  11. We are very forthright in the midlands. And nothing else to be said really when one is confronted by the hair. A pleasure to meet you Mr Stephenson

    1. She's the Hampshire Lass and she doesn't write a blog - she just basks in the warmth of ours.

    2. Hang on - Midlands in Hampshire? - DOH! I've been duped.

    1. I thought Cher would turn up, but she must be avoiding the Christmas tat shows.

  14. Just slightly off the subject, but is anyone else wondering exactly what use a self-inflating lazy bag could possible have?
    Congratulations, must be a relief to know that the exhibition was a great success after all the hard work. If we'd still been living in the UK, I would definitely have come to have a look round and say hello.

    1. Thanks Coppa's. That is a question that many Sons-in-law have at this time of the year.

  15. Maybe they mean the price was inflated. From fifteen to twenty quid.

    Les Dawson, wherever you are please come back the world needs you more than ever now!
