  1. Glad you enjoyed it. I just gave her her morning tablet, and she hasn’t farted once today.

  2. Thrifty – She has been feeling very sorry for herself all week. I think though that I feel sorrier for myself?

  3. Scrambled egg with rice is helpful too!!! Poor Sandy – hope she gets better soon for ALL your sakes.

  4. Kate – Scrambled eggs? I don’t get them! She seems happy with the chicken vindaloo anyway.

  5. Poor Sandy, hope she doesnt mind having her redecorated attempts published on the interweb, has anybody told her? Right to privacy etc etc etc.
    …scuse will I join NaRocRoc in doing some weetabix tossing……….. Oopps

  6. Charmed – Could we have less of the sympathy for Sandy please? What about me? I was the one who had to wheelbarrow it out the door and scrub the place?

    Flirty – I normally post a bit later in the day, but this one went out early as a special treat.

  7. animal poop just doesn’t bother me anymore. after having lived with as many as 15 cats and 11 dogs simultaneously i think i am immune to the smell of it. we are now down to just 2 cats. I was looking around just the other day and noticed there was no poop anywhere on the floor! even around the cat box! I could not believe it. animal poop has been such an important part of my life for so long! here’s some hugs and sympathy for you for having to clean it up while worrying what was causing it. sounds like sandy got into a bit of roadkill. that’ll do it everytime. go have a good rest, you deserve it.

  8. Prin – There was something about this dose that brough about an instant gag reflex. Wow, but it was awful!! The vet did ask if Sandy had eaten any foreign matter. I said the only thing was that she had chewed on a Mexican tourist she found in the village. He said that might have been enough.

  9. yeah, those spicy meals will do it every time too 🙂 Don’t have an extra suit do you? never know when the influx of critters will start up again around here and I might need one.

  10. Now, there’s a coincidence! I was just about to contact Mikhail in Uzbekistan again, as I’m running low on cruise missiles and printer ink. I’ll ask if he has any more suits.

  11. Thank god I’m not eating right now, but you’re putting me off chocolate for a while…

  12. Chuckled all the way through. A Head Rambles classic. Hopefully your book is just as good as this post. Is the topic similar?

  13. Thanks, Sixty! 🙂 More or less on those lines. The book flits from topic to topic just like the site.

  14. forgotton all about the book 🙁 How could I, tsk tsk. tell more, like when, where etc. Is there a free copy for everyone in the audience, etc

  15. Is there a free copy for everyone in the audience


    Chance would be a fine thing. The way Herself is promising them to all friends and relations, I’m going to have to buy my own!

    Strangely enough, this is the fourth mention of the book today. Time I wrote a note about it?

  16. Now you see this worries me:

    “The book flits from topic to topic just like the site.”

    I never thought that sort of thing would bother me, but we took Jeremy Clarkson’s book on holiday. I thought it would make good reading…. Shows what I know!

    Each chapter appears to be a column he’s done in the newspaper, reading one is fine, reading three or four is fine, reading it like a book and expecting to go cover to cover (that’s what books are there for) doesn’t feel right…

    Most definitely toilet reading, not the content – just the way it’s set out… I hope yours is an improvement on that!!

  17. Poor poochie, stick a nappy on her and she’ll be grand. Either that or a healthy dose of cornflour in her food.

    Thickens even the runniest gravy!!!!

  18. Most definitely toilet reading

    Wow! My first critical slating! I would prefer to think of it as ‘coffee table’ material?

    The original idea was to write a novel. I wrote one, but wasn’t happy with it [though the publisher was]. The current plan is to publish a compendium in January, and a totally rewritten novel possibly in 2010.

  19. Maxi – I am delighted to say that the gawks seem to be over. The green tinge has gone from the air in the house too. We are all breathing normally, and Sandy is a happy camper.

  20. Wow! What a ‘crap’ post 😉

    I’m with Sixty here…

    I hurt from laughing!

    Well done, Grandad – your toilet humour excels. It’s a cracker!

    And get well soon, Sandy!

    p.s. you could always send a sample off to Harney, to be checked for C.Diff 😀

  21. Steph – If it were a work of fiction, I would bask in your praise. Unfortunately, life here is never simple and the Gods conspire to confuse me on a daily basis. I wouldn’t dare send a sample to Harney – she would have it spread throughout every hospital in Ireland in no time.
