C'mon, Don_1, you should know me well enough by now to know that I would rather not so much as even lift a finger!

Oh, and when you visit, don't forget to wash yourself after desert in the finger bowl right behind you.

And don't you even think of laying a finger on my wife. we'll both shake our fingers  at you for attempting that!



I suppose we should be thankful that you didn't mention Fingers Malone when you knuckled down to write that.

I'm not going to take a hard copy of this post, I can do without a finger print. I'll just make do with a digital copy.

The beautiful young lady receptionist at the hotel rang me to say that my room booking had been confirmed. Now that's what I term as a cutie call.

True, but that cutie call is only one of the many, mani cures that the hotel offers.

I wonder if they will celebrate English language day at Oxford University???

If the Chancellor of Oxford University were to be removed from his position on the grounds of mental instability, could it be said that he would have lost control of his faculties ?

Maybe the Chancellor simply couldn't make the grade?

Certainly worthwhile studying this more.

It's teaching me not to judge a whole class of people, e.g., "All Chancellors are mentally unstable".

Some parasites were having a shindig on a parrot. The headline in the morning paper was PARTY POLLY TICS.

April 27 - May 3, 2014 is:
Preservation Week

Why do people preserve fruits and vegetables?

Because they 'can'.

Now that's jarred my memory. It was beautiful late summer's morning and down at the manor house, the gardener was tending to the fruit nets to stop birds from pectin at the redcurrants.

The Squire had invited friends & relatives for the weekend and his good lady wife was conducting a preservice check on the breakfast table. She called to the maid, "Did you lay the table?" The maid replied, "Yes Ma am, I laid it first thing this morning."

"Very well done," the Lady of the house retorted, "Now if you would please announce 'Breakfast is served'  and  jam open the French windows to let in the smell of the rose garden."

Alan and I didn't want anyone to see what we had found in the old natural history museum vaults until we were good and ready to make the announcement.
But the invited guests to the unveiling were turning up too early so I had to inform Al d' hide the specimen jar.

This line of punning has me in a bit of a pickle.

We're going to have to know our onions if we're going to find a way to a new line.

AHha! That's it, 'onions', of course, we can move on now rather than vegetate on the preserves.
