The shape of hospital cardboard and the face of Halloween and other stuff

The Big Storm has vanished off into Europe although there is little news of it now here in the UK, I feel over here is was a bit over hyped and so has vanished off the national news already. However my mind was focused on the more worrying thought of the dentist when I woke up this morning. Which was made even more scary by the news when we arrived at the dentist that our trusty family dentist of almost thirty five years has retired and run off. This was not welcome news and we did point out that turning up to see your faithful trusted dentist is one thing, but to arrive and be told Oooooo he has run off you will be see a totally new chap is as the old saying goes NOT CRICKET. Yes it is one of those saying again that makes no sense as it is plainly clear cricket and the dentist are not the same thing, even if both involve bats and drills.

I have to say my computers spell checker is very annoying tonight as it keeps informing me that my use of punctuation and comprehension is quite frankly rubbish, I have tried to point out that in fact this is part of the character of my diary, but it does not seen to comprehend that concept (a bit ironic if you ask me . . . .AH you did not).

This afternoon we ventured back into town to see Mr M who was looking a bit weaker today and was tired. He had a selection of cardboard things which as we know allow patients to do things like wee, poo and be sick in, or throw at seagulls should they venture in. So to cheer Mr M up I drew a whole selection of Halloween characters on these, as it happens the pee pots make brilliant heads and you can draw a smiley face on one side and a growling face on the other. I do have one useful tip to anyone else planning on doing this to cheer folk up in hospital, it is best to check all the various cardboard items before you turn them upside down to draw on them. . . . . . . . . . . AH DAMN.

All our trips out today have been conducted in a very very hot car, you see dad said that we need to dry out the inside of the car after yesterdays leaking sun roof incident in order to stop the car windscreen steaming up with condensation.  The car does have a very good heater and the car is almost dry again but it was hot in there for a while . . . . .PHEW.

As you can tell I am now home again and need to go and draw a quick picture for tonight’s diary entry, I will give myself half an hour and see what I come up with as a little challenge.

PHEW . . . . . . . . . .DONE


  1. If you're looking for some challenges when drawing, I have a request, if you'd care to indluge me:

    Please can you draw Vladimir Putin wrestling a grizzly bear at Wrestlemania XXXIV. This is a tag team match, and Putin's tag partner is a female version of himself from a parallel dimension. The bear's tag partner is a man dressed in a homemade Transformers costume.

    Thanks in advance.

    1. I will see what I can do Mr Addman. Luckily your request is not too hard I just need to find some time.....

  2. Hi Rob,

    We had no evidence of the storm where we live. Thankfully, the magical wee folks had no damage to their mushroom houses.

    Your drawings just keep getting better. And spell-checker. For a laugh, I sometimes time in American English instead of proper English. It goes into red line overload.

    Pawsitive wishes,

    Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet superstar! :)

    1. Many thanks Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet superstar, it is always good to see you.

      I hope you are keeping well, there is nothing better than a quick walk round the Blog....
