The potholes of Buckinghamshire

Just off out to brave the roads in this neck of the woods!   I’m hoping that my 4×4 is sufficient to cope with the current road surface.
I shall be listening as I go but if I’m not back in an hour (a sufficient time I’ve calculated to accomplish the 4 mile journey I have in mind) Please can you alert a search party as I may have disappeared down one of the more challenging caverns which appear to be riddling the by-ways of this part of Buckinghamshire.
I go with trepidation……….


Good grief  that was exciting this morning wasn’t it
Beats bashing down the slopes on a tea tray – though in my day it never occured to us to tie it to our feet!!
Well done to Jenny Jones on her bronze medal

The Floods – Advice would be useful

Good morning oh Wise One
I’m concerned
Now we’ve had two days of no rain and the floods are likely to recede in the coming days – When is the hosepipe ban going to be enforced?
I need to make sure my garden remains water-logged as I’ve decided to turn it into a wetland with the appropriate features and requirements for wildlife and if there’s a hosepipe ban in the offing then my creation will be doomed to failure.
Please advise -
I can be reached by boat

The Undertones – Terry’s slip of the tongue


In response to Terry referring to the Overtones as the Undertones:

“Totally understandable at your time of life to make such a slip of the tongue
But personally I don’t think you need to be considering Undertakers yet.
Be brave – and carry on clinging to the wreckage”

Upcoming Jim Reeves Broadcast – 5 November 2013

I am concerned about this Jim Reeves broadcast
To be up and working so late in the evening at your time of life is asking a lot I feel.  Will you be allowed to dress-down for the broadcast?   A smoking jacket and slippers would seem appropriate –   or will you be dressed as is required by the BBC – in full evening dress?
I do trust the present Lady Wogan will have a “hot chocolate” ready and waiting for you  in the way you like it best  -  when you get home
I shall endeavour to stay awake but please forgive me if I find your dulcet tones send me to sleep.

The great storm of biblical proportions

I have done the right thing haven’t I??
I’ve just been out and fought over the dwindling supplies at the supermarket
I then spent some considerable time hunting for my hatches but in the end I think I found them (being single they haven’t been used in years)  – and I’ve now battened them -  something I found strangely moving!
Have I missed anything??

Strictly vs. Atlantis


Am I the only one to be perturbed by last night’s entertainment
First we are entertained by the Hairy Biker creating a Passo Doble which would have made the gods shudder
Only to be followed by the rather dashing ‘Jason’ swirling through the bull-ring in Atlantis with a grace that would have earned him “9s”  from all the judges – even Craig.
Can I suggest they swap – it would be far more exciting on so many fronts!!
