A Snollygoster is a dishonest man who holds public office. It’s a very old word but how it fell into disuse is a mystery. We have hundreds if not thousands of them in the UK and it is much more fun than Lying Bastard!
I woke this morning and checked my e-mail. I only had the one and it was a Christmas greeting from my old tax dodging friend the Artful Dodger at Amazon. He had books for £0.99p….not many…. this one was £1.20p. A bargain none the less. It’s The Horologicon by Mark Forsyth. I had a quick and clumsy skim through it….The Kindle is not much use for flicking through books……Unless I’m missing something. Be useless for cookery books. I can see The Horologicon providing plenty of entertainment and illumination.
I took the dogs a walk at first light…..not that there was much light.
We all got back, the Canon has survived the rain so that is a bonus. It is going to take some sorting. It has so many tricks it can do. It has two positions for the ON switch……not sure what that is about. I like the auto focus it is quick and has three settings . One of which locks it on a moving subject without my input. It can’t however lock on two moving subjects so the dogs running will have to be shot one at a time or at f16 and up.
I had a massive fried breakfast…….now I’m still too full for my Christmas dinner. I got a Pheasant. It will still be fine for tomorrow.
I made the dogs dinner.
Two of these…..rice and chicken with scrambled egg and a sausage each. It took ten minutes to make and a minute to disappear. Alf's went down so fast it bounced on the end of his tummy and shot straight back…he ate it again and this time it stayed put. Greedy, revolting little devils.
Enjoy the rest of the holiday.
