A Catalogue of Excuses and other reasons this diary is Slightly Erratic.

Have you wondered where I have been  . . . . What do you mean NO. . . Right I am going to assume you mean YES or this whole diary entry would be futile and we don’t want that do we . . . . What do you mean YES . . . I am assuming you mean NO and have just got a bit confused. Folk often get confused reading my diary although I don’t know why.

Right here in Britain it has been hot, really hot. SO hot in fact that a chap who likes to write his diary might go delirious and forget. YES it was that hot here (well almost 35c - ish). And I have been making the workshop so was busy when I was not delirious. Then to add to this I was abducted by Aliens who were planning to do tests on me until I suggested they read my diary. They let me go then saying I was obviously a faulty model and they would find a better human to chop up (sorry experiment on). 

Then rather sadly our cat (The Grumpy One, Harry) is very poorly so he has distracted me as he's being drip fed Squirty Cream at present. That is helping, well its helping the cat he is looking slightly better today He still looks very very poorly though. Yesterday he looked like he would not make it to morning, but he loves Squirty Cream so much he will refuse to die while there is a possibility of another small dish of it for him. And he is eating some food again, and being less fussy that normal too.

I have also been patrolling the garden at night to look for wildlife and things such as Zombies, in the warm evenings. To tell the truth I have seen very little; I think the reason is that our other cat Sooty meows like a banshee at present and does enjoy a walk round the garden. His body is OK, but his brain is not and he is also totally deaf now which is why he howls so loudly I think. So a very sick cat and a deaf mad cat are also jolly good reasons why this diary is getting trickier to write by the day.

I will leave now and drink tea.  

Yet another obstacle in the path of the perfect diary.

Harry in better times

By the Way Sid the Seagull who is a Pigeon has left now I will never know what happened to him but hope he headed home. We were but ships that passed in the night (a few days). Anyway it does mean calling him Sid the Seagull was a suitable name bearing mind he/she  is/was a Pigeon. 


  1. Something there is that doesn't love a wall
    That sends the frozen ground swell under it

    I was born near a Wall, as a matter of fact, Wall was the closest place. I will have to ask my mother if I was born on a hot day. It is raining near us today but several smiles away. There probably more smiles the closer you get to rain, and by more, I mean Relative Smile Density, not Absolute Smile Density. There several square kilometers near me where there is not a single human, sometimes the entire day. So the RSD and the ASD would be equal and zero.

    1. I didn't proof read my comment and noticed several my stakes later, most likely be cause I just woke up, from being down, obviously.

    2. Tie Pin Errors are allowed Mr ESB, as you have probably spotted over the years I am prone to this on a regular basis. Harry used to spend a lot of time looking at walls as long as he was on the sunny side of the wall so that he had a warm back. Cats like heat normally. However Harry is very poorly (still alive thanks to the squirty cream) but he can no longer cope with heat and on hot or even warm days pants and will find places to hide. When its raining we now find him outside sleeping in the rain. . . . it is sad although he is now 15 and has been the grumpiest snarling bully of a cat we have ever owned and would destroy and eat any small furry critter he could find. Even recently his hearing has (and still is) so good he can detect small mice moving and is patent enough to wait until he knows he can destroy them with his talons without having to chase them which he cant do now.

      Human density is low here but probably not as low as it is near you. I think part of that is because Britain is a smaller place and if folk try and move away from each other then some will fall off the edge into the sea.

    3. A ledge is an edge with an L sound
      and an L shape
      TypicaLLy not found to be round
      And the L shape is rotated around a few degrees
      As nature would please

      I have been to Houston several times in the last almost decade, but never quite managed to see the sea. I was even on Galveston Island once during this time period, but it was dark when we were leaving Moody Gardens, and I wasn't driving, I think (?), so I didn't see deep salt water. I did see shallow salt water, I'm pretty sure.
