An alternative view of the whaling museum from Queen's Gardens.

Red Road

This is the road I drive along to get to work each day, the red bit is for buses, you might have guessed that. Just a bit back there is a bit of road that has a dull green area on it, this was a designated crossing area for frogs, but it didn't work very well.


A woman was in town on a shopping trip. She began her day finding the most perfect shoes in the first shop and a beautiful dress on sale in the second. In the third everything had just been reduced to a fiver. Then her mobile phone rang. It was a female doctor notifying her that her husband had just been in a terrible accident and was in critical condition and in the ICU. The woman told the doctor to inform her husband where she was and that she'd be there as soon as possible.

As she hung up she realized she was leaving what was shaping up to be her best day ever in the shops. She decided to get in a couple of more shops before heading to the hospital.

She ended up shopping the rest of the morning, finishing her trip with a cup of coffee and a beautiful coffee slice complimentary from the last shop. She was jubilant. Then she remembered her husband. Feeling guilty, she dashed to the hospital. She saw the doctor in the corridor and asked about her husband's condition. The lady doctor glared at her and shouted, "You went ahead and finished your shopping trip, didn't you? I hope you're proud of yourself! While you were out for the past four hours enjoying yourself in town, your husband has been languishing in the Intensive Care Unit! It's just as well you went ahead and finished, because it will be more than likely the last shopping trip you ever take! For the rest of his life he will require round the clock care. And you'll now be his carer!" The woman was feeling so guilty she broke down and sobbed. The doctor then chuckled and said, "I'm just pulling your leg. He's dead. What'd you buy?"

Quartered Queen

Apologies if this is predictable, but wifey suggested it, and Cindra kind of dropped hints with her previous Elton reference.

Pointed Pendant

Back to nessa's game today, Allthough this is obviously a pointed pendant, it is also inscribed on the back with "Bugger Off". If that upsets anybody, read it again. Now what the hell am I going to do for Quartered Queen?

We went out conkering today, it kind of brings out the kid in you, but when you look at them closely, aren't they gorgeous?


A busy day yesterday, Harry's birthday, and to save you asking, yes that is me on the cake.

Little lion

In all senses

Nine Noses

The other band members weren't sure about the drummers suggestion for their band name.

Things wot I know

You can't make someone love you. All you can do is stalk them and hope they panic and give in.

Mean Melon

I grew 7 melons this year, when I added the weight of all of them together, this one was the mean melon.

Kind Kitten

I know I killed mummy mouse, but I let the babies go.

The Adelphi Rocked

I went to the Adelphi last night, not been there for about 15 years, good to see it hasn't changed. The first act defied description, but was entertaining none the less. The second band, I think hailed from Lincoln and might of been called The Rise, but don't quote me on that. They were good, producing several anthemic punk tunes, with a particularly good bass line. The main support were a French punk band called "Guerilla Poubelle", now Hull is not well known for it's acceptance of Johnny Foreigner, but the audience embraced them with a very genuine warmth. The band, clearly appreciated this and ripped through a set of excellent Gallic punk rock. Geurilla Poubelle are also the first band I have seen with a resident artist onstage, a bit like Bez with crayons. On to the main act, "Sonic Boom Six", who provided a fantastic, full of energy set. The audience loved them, they loved us, and hopefully they will be back soon. So after all those rubbish bands of the 80's, Manchester finally comes up with a good 'un!

Excited Elephant

So I'm walking along and this bloke offers me a job, you get to take people away he says, ha ha. Then the next day I won the lottery, and then I hear I'm appearing in some weird game invented by Nessa, and then to cap it all, mum says I can have a party tomorrow.

Garibaldi or Bourbons

The local rag, The Hull Daily Mail has an offer of free biscuits on Tuesday, I'm struggling to cope with the excitement. I wonder what their target group is with this offer? At least now that the council has stopped free school meals for all children, there appears to be an alternative!

Waves on the Humber

Getting away from Nessa's game for a while, this was taken a few days ago on Hessle Foreshore. You will hear that it was quite windy.

Angry Art

It's called Angry Art, Nessa will understand why it is here, as will those of you who visit her. I'm hoping the fact that you have to look real close to see the writing will make you angry (yes I know it's tenuous!)

We went for a walk by the river this morning, something we used to do a lot, when we lived in the area. It was sunny and quite warm, so a pleasant time was had by all. However the highlight of the day was yet to come when I spotted the Mighty Dave Windass in ASDA.
