A Short Post.

Hi all,
Just arrived back from our stay at the annual Great Dorset Steam Fair, very enjoyable but very hard work for me as Sue was unable to help with anything, including erecting or packing away the tenting equipment etc. For those of you who have been asking after Sue's health, she is not in quite so much discomfort and we go for new X rays again Wednesday afternoon in Barnstaple, then if all is OK then they should replaster (for the last time) and it should then be the final 4 to 6 weeks.
Sue says thanks to all of you who have asked how she is.
I would love to be able to post pictures of the Steam Fair on here but every time i try the computer goes out of Firefox and i lose all the text, bloody nuisance but just cant afford to take PC to the Docs at the moment. Maybe Gavin my Grandson will have a look for me but you just cant tie these youngsters down for 10 mins.
So hope to be able to do a proper blog soon.
Joke of the day.


The Inland revenue decides to audit Grandpa, and summons him to there office.
The auditor was not surprised when Grandpa showed up with his attorney.
The auditor said, 'Well, sir, you have an extravagant lifestyle and no full-time employment, Which you explain by saying that you win money gambling. I'm not sure the Revenue office finds that believable.'
I'm a great gambler, and I can prove it,' says Grandpa. 'How about a demonstration?'
The auditor thinks for a moment and said, 'Okay. Go ahead.'
Grandpa says, 'I'll bet you a thousand pounds that I can bite my own eye.'
The auditor thinks a moment and says, 'It's a bet.'
Grandpa removes his glass eye and bites it. The auditor's jaw drops.
Grandpa says, 'Now, I'll bet you two thousand pounds that I can bite my other eye.'
Now the auditor can tell Grandpa isn't blind, so he takes the bet.
Grandpa removes his dentures and bites his good eye.
The stunned auditor now realizes he has wagered and lost three grand, with Grandpa's attorney as a witness. He starts to get nervous.
'Want to go double or nothing?' Grandpa asks 'I'll bet you six thousand pounds that I can stand on one side of your desk, and pee into that wastebasket on the other side, and never get a drop anywhere in between.'
The auditor, twice burned, is cautious now, but he looks carefully and decides there's no way this old guy could possibly manage that stunt, so he agrees again.
Grandpa stands beside the desk and unzips his pants, but although he strains mightily, he can't make the stream reach the wastebasket on the other side, so he pretty much urinates all over the auditor's desk.
The auditor leaps with joy, realizing that he has just turned a major loss into a huge win.
But Grandpa's own attorney moans and puts his head in his hands.
'Are you okay?' the auditor asks.

'Not really,' says the attorney. 'This morning, when Grandpa told me he'd been summoned for an audit, he bet me twenty-five thousand pounds that he could come in here and p*ss all over your desk and that you'd be happy about it!'

So don't Mess with Old People!!
