The passing of Mary Alice

The proof is in the photograph. She did indeed produce another 4 flowers, now waning, on a third stalk, equal in length to the second and "my guid man", as one of our Highland neighbours used to refer to Chic when addressing me, has at last assumed the upright stance. He tried to stay out of the picture, hence the toasting fork, but to prove he has left the prone position I needed at least part of him there!

Isn't there an European ruling against attacking plants with toasting forks? Don't you know the serious crime squad monitors these blogs? The boys in blue from the anti peaceful protest( armed reaction section elite ) A.R.S.E will be round to dust your trousers with their batons. be warned! Tom

No, no, you have got it all wrong. The SACMAs (Society against cruelty to Mary Alices) will be after you. They won't prosecute you, but they will persecute you.

Naw,I think it's the Fast Action Response Toastingfork Squad (F.A.R.T.S.)that will be after you.

The Safe Handling Indoors of Toasting Equipment, or S.H.I.T.E. for short, will be investigating the use or misuse of said equipment and will be making a report in the fullness of time. The Committee Reporting Absurd Procedures, or C.R.A.P. will then make public its findings.

I was trying to read out loud to Tom Jeek's commments but couldn't for laughing! It took a number of attempts before I could get past 'Committee Reporting' without spluttering.
