Pictures of Pussy on the Internet

Here are the pictures of Misty, the cat referred to in previous posts.

there is no snooze button on a cat who wants her breakfast

’come here while I bite you’

Cheers Kay!

Slightly faster hitch hiking....

After a longish hitch to Bracknell, I wondered if I would ever get back to Leeds. So on Wednesday. Stuck my thumb out at 1130 hhrs, in Bracknell. And I was back in Leeds in Holbeck before 1556 hhrs. Quicker than the coach, quicker than the train I think….

Done in two hitches, the first a trade plater heading to Barnsley dropped me off at Woodhall Services. He said he was doing research into the case of Jeremy Bamber, and discussed said case.

Vogon Central on the M40?

a cat.  yesterday.

Greetings from Bracknell! I have been to Stonhenge! I have been to Europe! I have been to the Moon! and now! Bracknell! Still. must confess that I got the bus and train from Reading.

My early start from Leeds did not quite happen. So at midday tuck out my thumb at Junction 2 of the M621. Not bad, only a 90 minute wait and a nice lift to Tibshelf services. two further lifts to Leicester Forest East via Trowel. Then the offer of a lift to the M40 from a Polish waggon driver. Well, not sure how I was ever going to get round the M25, seemed like a good idea at the time. Got there 1830 hhrs, was there all night, 13 hours in total. And probably subject to more hostility than ever.

Now, gentle reader. I am under the misconcieved Idea that most hitch hikers are harmless. Or at least I am. I do not hassle drivers for lifts. I wait patiently. I hope. I smile. I wave. I spread good vibrations, or try too. Difficult after a 13 hour wait. Oh well, hitch hiking Karma, nothing like it, it confirms your faith in human kind, or wrecks it.

So yes, the negative gestures did get to me a bit. Perhaps Cherwell Valley Services on the M40 is Vogon Central. The attitude of Prostetnic Vogon Jeltz "All planet leave is cancelled. I've just had an unhappy love affair, and I don't see why anyone else should enjoy themselves."

Happy hippy summer solstice one and all. I am enjoying the most wonderful hospitality of a wonderful friend. As one of her fridge magnets has it

Life should be filled with love, laughter, friends and a cat.

The cat (Misty, a big beautiful tortoiseshell) is a psycho though LMAO!

Merrick, ever had any long waits?
Happy Hitching one and all!

An otherwise dull day

I was walking down Woodhouse Lane when I was handed a flier, nicely laser printed A5 black and white. Makes a change from the club fliers, glossy rubbish, I am not interested. Night clubs are a boring rip off.

Anyway, said leaflet is signed Henry Percy. No contact details. Hi Henry if you are reading this, feel free to get in touch. Oh, and in black and white there is a heraldic achievement in part on the front.

Said leaflet starts with

“Did you know that I invented the electronic computer in 1942? I was born in 1940 the second son of the 10th Duke of Northumberland with a uniquely prodigious intellectual ability which my particular circumstances enabled me to be rapidly developed”

Must confess that it wasn’t till I re-read said sentence that I thought hang on, that means he invented the computer at the age off two.

Our Henry continues

“The basic secrecy has continued since the war for similar reasons – to conceal the existence of the copyright and thus enable those people to manipulate that enormous advantage to their greater benefit.”

Clever of the buggers to make Henry look like a conspiracy theorist. Good luck in retrieving your intellectual property Henry, might be worth a few bob now…..

Weird Teeth

Observant readers of this blog may have noticed that I have not been at my best over the last few months. I have been dying of dental pain. Was finally diagnosed as an abscess a few weeks ago, long story, and I did a course of antibiotics. Well, the root canal filled fractured tooth believed to be the cause of said abscess which likesay has had my eyes popping out my head has just been amputated, like 4 hours ago, and the anaesthetic is just wearing off.... agh! Still, hopefully in a few days I will have my life back.

Anyway, it would seem that say 90% of root canal fillings work, problem was this one was fractured for a while, so an infection happened, but likesay the filling didn’t quite work as there is a peculiar architecture to at least this particular tooth, the root canal deltas at the other end. The dental surgeon tells me that architecture does vary, some people do have peculiar teeth….

Funny old world

A few weeks ago created a forum at love@lycos entitled “Eccentrics” description being:-

“Do you try to complete the circle but through stroke of genius manage to slightly miss it? Or do you just not bother going round in circles? Nothing like eccentricity, no defining characteristics (by definition)”

To date it has one member.
