A hair of the Grandad — 34 Comments

  1. I think, but I’m not sure, it’s about head rambles that have been topiaried which isn’t a real word so that fits – excellent – well done me *pats back and shuffles off*.

  2. ‘What the fuck is this blog about?’

    If you haven’t worked that out what hope have we 😉

  3. I think your strapline “Rambles around the head of an Irish Senior Citizen” describes it perfectly – what could be added or subtracted that would improve upon such a succinct expression?

  4. Daddy P – Topiaried Thoughs? Hmmmmm.

    Grannymar – None whatsoever.

    Ian – I don’t know, but that confuses me too 🙁

  5. daily life seen through the tourist-tortured eyes of a respectable country gent.

    maybe a little of that is true

  6. Seeing as you have an annual haircut, that gives us 364 days to figure it out!

  7. This blogs gives a voice to the observations of the insanity played out around us all every day, mixed with a small dash of the insanity inside our own heads.

    I once heard that stress was the state of being wherby the mind over-rides the body’s desire to knock the shit out of some deserving bastard.

    I think Head Rambles is a way of venting that stress, with only minor injuries to the general public (Tourists not included)

  8. You question reminds me of the answer to “What is the meaning of life?” It doesn’t matter.

  9. Well, the “head rambles of Grandad” is actually an anagram of “far gone mad balderdash”. 😀

  10. Well, I liked my answer, until I read Longman Oz’s – but here’s my take anyway, because I can’t afford to waste any thoughts.

    “I punch a bunch of buttons on this machine, it strings together 1 & 0’s and arranges them on a screen for people to stare at.”

  11. It’s like the Hokey-Pokey…THAT’S what it’s all about. (A little bit of everything!)

  12. Hello again,

    How about it’s a book about not suffering in silence, a compilation of gripes and grumbles and funny antidotes from the wit of an Irish Senior Citizen.

  13. Ouch! I went out for a while. I didn’t expect this many responses, and I can’t reply to them individually.

    There are some crackers there, though Johnie has me a little confused? Am I missing something?

    Longman has too much time on his hands and Darren doesn’t.

    Welcome back Shoo and thanks again! 🙂

  14. It’s the ‘Gripes and Grumbles’ show ….. as presented by Grandad.

    Pat Kenny will surely lend you his ‘owl’ for the opening credits!

  15. I was going to say 42 as well! And I thought it would be original…

    It’s the answer to life, the universe and everything according to The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. Of course, this is the answer to life, the universe and everything according to Grandad, so maybe you’ll need a new number. 56?

  16. Annual Haircut???

    It’s about everything, really. It’s about about finding humour in the oddest things and everything that grinds your gears. Or in your case, everything that ruffles your beard. 🙂

    Aging Angst?
    Beards and Beer?
    Comical Craic?
    Half-baked Hilarium?
    Jesting Jaunts?
    Pipes and Pints?
    Senior Satire?

    Shall I go on? 🙂

  17. 42 = answer to the ultimate question in Hitch hikers guide to the galaxy. Turns up in the headers of Tiff files too. Nerdy nerdy nerdy nerdy nerdy……….. <—- Me

  18. Head Rambles is apparently about writing whatever the stuff is that comes into your head when you’re high on acid – I know your secrets – and then having random strangers you’ll never meet comment on it.

    Wait a sec … this is a good trip, right?

  19. It’s about you and your opinion of stuff.Obviously we like it because we keep coming back.

  20. @june in florida. I don’t – I’m actually taped to a chair here with my eyes pinned open. my wife keeps reloading the blog to see if Grandad’s said anything new today.

  21. my wife keeps reloading the blog to see if Grandad’s said anything new today

    Bloody hell! That makes me sound like some kind of religious oracle or something.

  22. Well don’t know about an oracle… How about a portal to life – death and everything inbetween? On the other hand it could just be the ramblings of an old chap with a job in the secret service trying to throw everyone off the scent!

  23. Geri – I have to deny that I work for the secret service. It’s part of the job description.
