The pirates ships of Treasure Island, Pugh, Pugh, Barney McGrew, Cuthbert, Dibble and Grub and a ferret

Today has been wet dark and cold, it appears that the UK is slowly vanishing under water with terrible floods and the like, I had to explain to several teachers that my homework was ruined when I had to leap into a puddle to save a distressed seagull who was confused and thought he was somewhere in the middle of the North Sea. To tell the truth it is very easy to make that sort of mistake at present as there is a lot of water about and it is still raining very heavily even as I type.

Anyway with all the rain and cold and dark everyone was sulking and sailing paper boats up and down the school corridors. Treasure Island makes very good pirate ships although it needs to be one of the very very rare first editions signed by Blind Pugh from the crew who if I remember correctly were Pugh, Pugh, Barney McGrew, Cuthbert, Dibble and Grub., luckily the school library had a first edition of Treasure Island  . . . . . . . Har Har Har Har Hardy Har so my pirate ships were able to attack the fleet of the Russian navy made from War and Piece. It was a modern edition of War and piece so the paper was rubbish. Although Esmeralda’s U boats made from Under Milkwood were rather difficult to destroy but luckily Freddie’s ferret thought they were fish and ate them, leaving the pirates ships to blockade the doorway to the headmaster’s office. However the headmaster refused to pay the ransom and made me mop the deck (sorry I mean mop the desk).

 Oooooo yes the Ghost Writer hid today saying it was too wet for IT.

And myself and my djembe colleague have been playing The Song of the Sun God in an attempt to stop the rain, so with luck in the morning it will not be raining and the sun will come out.  



  1. Here's hoping the Djembe works. The dog wont go outside now with an umberella which is just stoopid. he is a very cowardly dog indeed.

    1. Dogs like the wet normally although maybe not this wet.

      I hope all is well with you today Mr H your part of the country up north of us appears to be in the front line of the floods today. Things here are indeed very wet with flooding very close to us, but we appear to have made it in one piece ourselves.

  2. I heard someone singing on the teleBision, and remembered someone Welshish that I enjoy: Charlotte Church

    1. She is a strange character who was if my memory serves me right a bit of a wild party girl. But I have not heard or see anything of her of late in the world of the media. The world of celeb is a fickle one,

      I have worked hard to remain just an ordinary chap, to insure that celebrity does not ruin my life. So far it appears to be going very well ... . . ..
