Lunchtime walk

When you're sat at a desk a lot, it's important to get a bit of exercise, so the other day I went for a walk in my lunch hour. I came across this drain, and walked from one bridge to the next one. The weather was lovely, sunny and warm, and the birds were singing. Life aint so bad.

Cool Cat

It's Boozer, he belongs to Bazza & Wifey, which naturally makes him cool

Animated Apple

It's an apple and it moves, it won't win an Oscar, it could be in with a chance of a Raspberry though.

Bad Bee

There's no way i'm going to get 26 of these done, and even if I had the time the competition is too strong this month (see Cindra & Quilly), but here's a start.

The Elevator

An Amish boy and his father were in a mall. They were amazed by almost everything they saw, but especially by two shiny, silver walls that could move apart and then slide back together again.
The boy asked, 'What is this Father?'
The father (never having seen an elevator) responded, 'Son, I have never seen anything like this in my life. I don't know what it is.
While the boy and his father were watching with amazement, a fat old lady in a wheel chair moved up to the moving walls and pressed a button. The walls opened and the lady rolled between them into a small room. The walls closed and the boy and his father watched the small circular numbers above the walls light up sequentially.
They continued to watch until it reached the last number and then the numbers began to light in the reverse order. Finally the walls opened up again and a gorgeous 24-year-old blonde stepped out.
The father said quietly to his son ... 'Go and get your mother.'

Funny how it goes

Nothing to post for a few days and then in the space of an hour I get some nice shots of old buildings in Hull, some great graffiti shots and we're off to the fair tonight. I just don't know when I'm going to get time to post them all!

A Quick Joke from Wifey!

With apology to all you 'blondes' in advance : )

Bob walked into a sports bar around 9:58 PM.
He sat down next to a blonde at the bar and stared up at the TV.
The 10:00 PM news was coming on.

The news crew was covering a story of a man on a ledge of a large buildingpreparing to jump.The blonde looked at Bob and said, 'Do you think he'll jump?'Bob says, 'You know, I bet he'll jump.'The blonde replied, 'Well, I bet he won't.'

Bob placed a £20 note on the bar and said, 'You're on!'Just as the blonde placed her money on the bar, the guy on the ledge did a swan dive off the building, falling to his death.The blonde was very upset, but willingly handed her £20 to Bob, saying,'Fair's fair. Here's your money.

'Bob replied, 'I can't take your money, I saw this earlier on the
5PM news , and so I knew he would jump.'The blonde replied, 'I did too; but I didn't think he'd do it again.'

Bob took the money.

The magic of blogland

I won an award, that's it up there, thanks to nessa for running the comp. Another wonderful thing happened on Saturday, WE HAD A PHONE CALL FROM CINDRA, now to some of you that may not mean much, but this was the first ever phone call I have had from someone in the US and also the first verbal contact we have had with a fellow blogger. I'm glad it was Cindra, she's kind of special, and I got to speak to Tom as well, who is also special too.
The observant amongst you may notice a small gap below this post, don't ask me how it got there.

Say welcome to wifey

Wifey has had to give up her blog due to rising demands on her time from the kids and Bazza. As recognition of her sterling efforts I have given her permission to post on my blog occasionally, when she has completed her chores, isn't she lucky to have me?
