I NEVER THOUGHT IT POSSIBLE. (22/02/16)

I have had quite a good weekend and the sun is shining brightly today. We had a grand walk this morning though without much to show for it.

This is the sun, a rare sight but I am promised more of it throughout the week.

The ground is drying out and I can see some ploughing being done by the weekend. I’ll see if I can get a bit of video and some pictures if by a miracle it doesn’t pour down before then.
Yesterday mornng I called at Polly’s to ask if she knew where the owls are living. I can hear the little devils most evenings and early mornings but cannot find the trees they are living in.
Whilst there I had a coffee and watched a bit of the Andrew Marr Show. He had as one of his guests Dithery Dave, he of forked tongue and a total lack of empathy or respect for the folk that pay his wages. I thought it impossible for him to drop further in my esteem but he really excelled himself.
He continually spoke in sound bites that must have sounded impressive in Downing Street but came over as simplistic and rehearsed. He got worse. He explained to us all how tough the negotiations with his European counterparts  had been and stated I got us this. We won’t be part of the Euro nor will we be part of the Schengen agreement.
Err…..Porky Poker. That is indeed good news or would be were it news. We aren’t part of either and never have been. I am glad your negotiation clarified matters but what are you taking……Has your boy George being sharing his nose candy with you? He repeated this stunning example of his tough stance twice, his nanny must have told him that if something is repeated often enough folk will believe it and hence regard him in high esteem. There was much waffle about sovereignty, he has drawn a line……….has he buggery. Every time the European Parliament passes another law then it is adopted here without so much as an explanation in Westminster. The poor man is delusional and should resign immediately. Andrew Marr was his sycophantic self and never once pulled the spoon faced idiot up for lying. Marr may enjoy being told porkies but most folk find such deliberate duplicity condescending. Those that don’t will be misled.
Not to worry, he will be fine after he gets some treatment; assuming he can find a doctor to think him worth treating. Who thought it a good idea to send him to negotiate? If someone sounds like an idiot, looks like an idiot, and acts like an idiot one would expect the rest of our government to recognise that he is an idiot. I can only assume he is the best and if so then we are really in the excrement.

  1. As a Canadian, I was first introduced to the word, porkies, by watching Jack Frost episodes on tv.

  2. I love the photos. Here's hoping you have more sunny days this week.

    It is interesting to me to hear how people in the U.K. are seeing this "deal" struck by your prime minister. I look forward to seeing how it all plays out.

    1. Marie, I may not be typical. There was no deal, only in Camorons mind. He was treated with disdain, fed and watered and sent back to London. Can't expect miracles as he went to a Special Needs School or as they call it in high society Eton.

    1. It may become less obvious but it will still be there Frances. In fact were I not waiting for a title to render you would have had a Blender video today. The shed is still a work in progress and coming along well.

    1. Richard, she knows where a little owl is but I called this morning and it isn't. There is a Woodpecker looking at the tree though and it isn't too far from the ground. I'll keep checking.

  5. in a half century of being of voting age, I have never been so appalled and embarrassed by political bozos. Clowns on the right, people who shoot themselves in the foot on the left. I will stick to my pictures and my classical music... I hope your less wet weather continues.

    1. Bill, there seems little to choose between them no matter where in the world you live. The forecast is for cold and dry.

  6. Politics... sometimes you just have to cringe at what goes on. And they are supposed to be in the know.

    Great to see the sun has returned for you. Enjoy!

    1. Lynda, if they knew about anything other than fiddling their expenses and otherwise lining their pockets they would have a proper job.
