Stop the press
I was going to scribble about tattoos today.
But frankly I couldn’t think of much to say about the subject.
I was going to scribble about minimum pricing of alcohol which came into force here yesterday.
But everything that needs to be said about that has already been said.
I was going to scribble about our “health service” and their demand for a total ban on tobacco and a reduction of the number of premises that can sell them [there is surely a slight paradox there?].
But apart from having a snigger at their lack of logic I am rather tired of banging on about smoking.
I went down to the village earlier. It occurred to me that I might find something interesting to scribble about down there but it was a remarkably uneventful trip. I dropped into the chemist for a chat with the pharmacist and then wandered up to the coffee shop.
What can I say about that? Well, it was cold. Yes, winter has arrived and temperatures are in the low single figures so I was well wrapped up but I still froze. But Penny got her chicken and was admired by a couple at the next table who couldn’t believe how quiet she is. They tried talking to her but she ignored them. I explained that she has gone deaf. Either that or else she has learned to ignore everyone [especially me]. I can’t decide which.
Anyways I went home having had a trip that was utterly unexciting and rather bland.
So you see my problem about finding subjects?
I don’t think I’ll bother posting anything today..
Well in that case, I’m not going to bother with a reply.
Neither then shall I
I won’t even read it.
Embra has/had a good one.
Talking of which Embra has shops that sell nice stuff, and tat too.
Bad news for Ireland. Green tattoo ink could be banned. EU conspiracy.The Teashop protests.
Nice ( no not the town ) tres jolie French actress. Audrey Tattoo.
Wonder if you can have your tattoos preserved for posterity?
Has Damien Hirst done it already? New meaning for full body tanning. And old threat – Ah’ll tan yore hide.
End of Ramble.
Have yourself a Good New Year. And thanks for the Rambles through your brain box.
I find boredom dissipates by consideration of the very large and very small (& me being a pompous twit).
A single leaf, containing astounding detail and structure can capture the imagination, then a look up at the stars may compound it.
You don’t have to be religious to glory in the beauty of life all around and, of course, within us.
I’ll get me coat…
Tattoos! Don’t get me started on tattoos! Or minimum pricing of alcohol! You won’t like it if you do!
Oh, you didn’t. 🙁
As you were.
I always think that paradoxically, the most interesting posts are those we might think of as ‘ordinary’. I love to read of normal life, and the gentle trials, tribulations, joys, happiness that make up our normal days. I always feel that the mainstream media is so full of its being self-created panic and political backbiting that snippets of everyday life are the perfect antidote. And much more interesting.
More power to your elbow, Grandad. And I had a dog that was selectively deaf as well. Couldn’t hear when it didn’t suit. But any mention of a walk or a treat and the ear immediately lifted.
