The Alien, the Cat and the Glider....
Today has not been a good day for a diary because it has been very quite indeed, the last of the huge conifer tree has gone and the pile of large bits of conifer have been put under cover in the log shed to dry out in a pile. Yes I have moved a pile of wood from one place to another. Hopefully it will dry out fairly quickly because our wood shed has a toughened glass roof and double glazed sides, so when the sun comes out it warms up. I do seem to have been bitten by something now so in case I turn into an alien I have been chained to the wall.
I don’t think it was necessary for the dog to chain me upside down to the wall though, suspended in the air, because it is not easy to type my diary in that position. And when my typing ability is a bit iffy at the best of times it does not help, but the dog says I have been bitten at least five times by aliens, so he is taking no chances so I will be surrounded by an electric fence later and trip wires attached to death rays (not the fish but the beam of stuff that kills).
I noticed the gliders were back again today, it appears we now live in a house that is underneath a rather popular location to release gliders from the tow plane. Luckily it is not noisy in fact the glider makes no noise at all, except someone possibly shouting AAAAuuuuuugghhhhhhhh aliens take to the hills and the little tow plane is not noisy. You get this sudden drop in revs as it allows a bit of slack in the tow wire just as it releases the glider at which point me and the dog put on rubber alien face masks to see if we can hear anyone shouting AAAAUUUUUUGGHHHHHHHH aliens take to the hills we have not yet. The dog is now hoping I might turn into a twenty foot mutant alien monster tonight so I can frighten the gliders tomorrow (if it is sunny).
In other news I have finally found a way of taking pictures of Heavy Harry the Cat without him getting annoyed although I can only get photographs of his side, but he always looks grumpy anyway so that’s OK.
I have also noticed that my rather brilliant blog has suddenly stopped getting visitors this week after getting nearly 4000 page views in the first three weeks of August. I noticed a marked increase in visitors from
, who have been interested in
my views on the Olympics (Not sure it was quite what they were expecting).
Still I am putting this sudden lack of interest down to alien attacks. After
all when an alien worm like creature is coming through your letterbox intent on
eating its way into your body to turn you into one of him (an Alien) you are
not going to spent time reading my blog…… Brazil
I can’t think of any other explanation for this. And I feel a bit sick; eating chocolate coated Brazil nuts, hazel nuts and peanuts chained upside down appears to be a bad idea….. Strangely mum has just said IDIOT…
