Proof of the eccentricity of life in the Country and therefore Alien life by default
I was pondering about what to write about as life ticks by in an almost normal fashion at present. This is good but also rather bad as the very nice Steven Spielberg is hardly likely to rush to the rolling hills of Shropshire to make the film of ordinary life in the county even if we have a few Zombies roaming about and Aliens in the woods pursued by Mr Jones in the nude who is in turn pursued by the police as folk complain that Mr Jones is in the woods naked again. And then there are the Lemmings of Petrograd, The Dark Creature of the Undergrowth, Esmeralda catapulting the goat in the general direction of the out of town supermarket, Freddie teaching his ferrets to do tricks, and the odd Banshee at night.
So you can see it is hard to find new and interesting stuff to write about although I did think I saw an Alien at the Commonwealth Games last night on the TV running in a race, but he did not really do very well so that can't be right. Unless a virus has afflicted the aliens and they are suffering like they did in the film the War of the Worlds (the old film not the newer rubbish one)
Anyway as I was saying I was pondering that there was nothing to write about when an advert in the local
came to my rescue, it is good when
stuff like this happens because it shows that I don’t make this stuff up it all
really happens out here in the sticks.
You see tomorrow is Tough Harry’s Fun Day in Churchstoke and they
have all sorts of things going on, but one particular item caught my eye (no
not like catching a ball). County Times
Yes its true there will be DANCING SHEEP. . . . . .WHAT? . . . . . . I have not seen dancing sheep before and until now did not know that sheep danced. I have no plans to go and see the dancing sheep I am just satisfied that just for once I have hard evidence of the bizarre events of life here, and besides I have a horrible feeling I might just end up disappointed if I go. . . . . . .. . . .
