Joke Tuesday.

A policeman was rushed to the hospital with an inflamed appendix. The doctors operated and advised him that all was well; however, the policeman kept feeling something pulling at his pubic hairs.

Worried that it might be a second surgery and the doctors hadn't told him about it, he finally got enough energy to pull his hospital gown up enough so he could look at what was making him so uncomfortable. Taped firmly across his pubic hair and private parts were three wide strips of adhesive tape, the kind that doesn't come off easily --- if at all. Written on the tape in large black letters was the sentence, "Get well soon from the nurse in the Landrover you booked for speeding last week."

Kind of brings tears to your eyes doesn't it?

General drivel.

Before I start, the pub continues to do well, and my Sunday roasts are still gorgeous!

Back to drivel. What is it with this weather? I know it's February, and it's supposed to be cold and 'orrible, but NOT this cold and 'orrible. The usually unreliable Met. Office admitted it is about 4c below average for the time of year.

My Dad is fed up, i'm fed up with him being fed up, so, come on global warming, GET ON WITH IT!, we're waiting.

The Jamaican fireman came home from work one day and said to his wife,
"Ya now sumptin' womon, we have a wonderful new system at de fire station...

Bell 2 rings - we slide down de pole.

The next night, he came home and shouted, "Bell One" and the wife stripped naked!
"Bell Two" and she jumped on the bed!
"Bell Three" and they started to make love!

After a few minutes, the wife yelled out, "Bell Four"
"WOMON ... What de hell is Bell Four'?" he asked.

She shouted back,

Pub news.

Today was a prime example of the vagaries of the pub trade. No tables booked for food at lunchtime. Fast-forward to 12-55pm. No tables free for food, and people waiting or going elsewhere.

I did manage to get my order in for homemade steak and mushroom pie with creamed potatoes and peas. Gorgeous!!

An older gentleman had an appointment to see the urologist who shared offices with several other doctors.

The waiting room was filled with patients. As he approached the receptionist's desk, he noticed that the receptionist was a hostile, unfriendly, miserable woman. He gave her his name.
In a very loud voice, the receptionist said
All the patients in the waiting room snapped their heads around to look at the very embarrassed man.He recovered quickly, and in an equally loud voice replied, 'NO, I'VE COME TO INQUIRE ABOUT A SEX CHANGE OPERATION, BUT I DON'T WANT THE SAME DOCTOR THAT DID YOURS.'The room erupted in applause!

According to Paul, this week has been the first for a long time that EVERY lunchtime has been really busy with food. I contributed with a beautiful gammon steak, pineapple, chips, peas, mushroom and tomato.

The evenings have been quiet, after the usual 5-00 'till 7-30 mob leave, although tonight the 'shoot' dinner are in.

Things look pretty good.

General drivel.

Some time ago I showed you a painting of two birds(feathered) that I did when I was 17.

An old friend called in the pub last Saturday. I hadn't seen him for 11 years, so we had a good natter,and he mentioned a mural of a record cover that I had painted on my bedroom wall. I remembered it vividly, but didn't have a photo. I was 18/19 at the time.

A couple of days ago he sent me a photo of the mural.

The album is by a German band called ELOY.

The album cover is bottom right to give it some scale.

A drunk staggers into a Catholic Church, enters a confessional booth, sits down, but says nothing.

The Priest coughs a few times to get his attention, but the drunk continues to sit there.

Finally, the Priest pounds three times on the wall.

The drunk mumbles, 'Ain't no use knockin, there's no paper on this side either.
