Good Lord~I'm a Student!

288 comments


Yesterday,the 21st, I became a Student all over again,at the grand age of 48! Here was I thinking all my education days were behind me,and there was I along with my ‘better’ half,(yeah right!) back in the classroom all over again for the next 10 weeks, learning all about Garden History, and how much of that history we still incorporate into our gardens today. It looks like it could prove to be a fascinating journey, and with your indulgence, I hope I can share it with my GoY friends, the ups and downs, and hopefully the laughs along the way!! We all think so much of the designs we do in our gardens are from our own aesthetic sense of what fits and is pleasing to the eye, but we are incredibly influenced by the media, the internet, and fashion and fads of the moment, I never realised just how much that promoted the way I looked at things…..hmm, this could prove very enlightening me thinks………. (Me rubbing chin in a thoughtful kind of way) I have already completed a part-time Garden Design Course at my local College early last year, so am hoping this will give me the backbone of why we design the way we do…….Mind you, just a thought,…………………………………………… does this mean now I’m a born again Student, that I can stay in bed till mid-day and say ‘Yeah Whatever, and ’Talk to the hand??’ Ooh, this could be soooo much funnnnn! ha ha ha! (Sorry any students out there lol!) Got to look up Capability Brown and Repton now as that’s our homework, now THAT is the downside to this education thing…………think I could get away saying my dog ate my homework at my advanced years??? Here, Raffie, raffie……………..tee hee hee! See you all next week, and keep smiling :~))))))
JUST WANTED TO ADD A PHOTO OF RAFF, AS IT IS HIS BIRTHDAY AND HE HAS JUST TURNED 5~ HE SAYS~ ‘Forget the candles, I just want the cake~yum yum’ That’s my boy ha ha ha! xxxxxxxx

Happy birthday to Raff.
Happy birthday to Raff.
Happy birthday to Raffles.
Happy birthday to Raff...

and good luck with the Garden History course... sounds fascinating...

Don't forget to dress like a student and eat like a student too. LOL.

22 Apr, 2010

 

when I was about your age I did the NCH half the course were straight from school and half mature students and we had THE BEST time, if you get a chance to do it its a great course-- takes a year I did hardy nursery stock and I loved every minute-- especially learning to reverse a tractor!!!
so I'm sure you'll really enjoy being a student, I honestly thing the mature students got much more from the course than the youngsters --happy learning---

22 Apr, 2010

 

Good Luck it sounds good. Dress like a student I'm a Hoody nearly all the time at 47 the zip front type my excuse is so I can keep my phone on me in case I fall. Lol :~)

Hi Terra :~)) always but always a joy to hear from you again. Hope Conker improving every day,especially with this wonderful sunshine. Raff says 'Ruff, woof woof whine whine, Conker, slurp, ruff woof, Truffle, slurp slurp, arooooo!' I don't quite know what that meant in human talk, but gather it's very complimentary in canine~speak lol! Yes, my lad now 5 years old today, and loving all the time I'm spending in the garden,(when not on GoY that is), he loves the sun, and always sits watching us work~think he was a Supervisor in his last life lol! Think this Garden History Course could prove really interesting, and it will be fun to blog, and give me much needed practice ha ha ha, as to dressing and eating like a student...........hmmmmm, that just might be a step toooooo far for me! Do they still dress like Goths???? :~))

22 Apr, 2010

 

Thanks Pamg, there's only about 12 of us on this Course, but we've got the same tutor who took us through the Garden Design Course, which is nice, as she knows us quite well! I don't think you are ever too old to learn, keeps the old grey matter turning over lol! I think it could prove surprisingly productive, and as you said, a lot of fun,so here's hoping..........Thanks so much for your comment, lovely to hear from you! :~))

22 Apr, 2010

 

Hi Gg, I live in Fleeces....yes I know most people live in a house....but you know what I mean lol ! Don't think I have ever been fashion-conscious in my life, so doubt I could start now. Us gardeners have our own fashion style don't we????

22 Apr, 2010

 

happy birthday Raff xx

22 Apr, 2010

22 Apr, 2010

22 Apr, 2010

 

Good luck with the course. I hope you enjoy it. You didn't say if there was an exam at the end lol. I hope not !
Happy birthday to Raff ....

22 Apr, 2010

 

They say your never to old to learn so enjoy the course I`m sure you`ll have fun. However, do you have to live on baked beans on toast and lager for the next ten weeks, and if you do can we have your progress blogs before you have the lager.lol. A `Happy Birthday` to Raff hope he had a good day.

22 Apr, 2010

 

Happy Birthday Raffi hope you had a wonderful day, and for you Floribunda, you now will not have a back bone, you will slump in your chair lol and spots on face and getting your best mate to write a letter for your absences haha, good luck hope you enjoy

22 Apr, 2010

 

Hi San, yes, we had a fantastic walk and totally cream crackered the dog! Hope Baz didn't 'wilt' too much on you and you resuscitated him ok in time for dinner! lol........Thank you Scotty and Ella, Raffie appreciates your birthday wishes, and says 'Woof woof back,,,,,,,,,,nice to hear from you Holly!.......Hi Hywel, yes there is an exam at the end~am not looking forward to that bit at all!!!!! Raff just given you a sloopy lick lol!.........Hi Stroller, good to hear from you, I shall just have to be an up-market student,cos I hate baked beans and lager lol~my tipple of choice is wine,and maybe I can scrape by on cheese on toast instead??? I'm much more fun if I blog After imbiding wine ha ha ha.........Raff got very spoilt for his birthday!!..........Thank you Sixpence, your birthday wishes passed on to my hairy mutt,lol, am already slumped in my chair.....so part way there!!...........
Thanks everyone for your support regarding my recent blog, you are a wonderful bunch out there, and I hope I can amuse and keep you stimulated as I progress through this Course........I might even Learn something ha ha ha :~))x

23 Apr, 2010

 

if you give us some info as well maybe writing it out for us would help your revision-- I did find on my course that it was harder to get some of the info to 'stick' in the little grey cells!

23 Apr, 2010

 

Lol Pam! Yes, I would like that, just don't want to bore anyone, as know not every one into history, though I have always enjoyed it :~)) I think, because we all have the connection with gardening, it could prove interesting for more than just myself, but am hoping to lace it with humour too~a bit of a giggle can make all the difference!! :~))

24 Apr, 2010

 

a modern student ?

struth i think flori needs some extra tuition in the art of painting sling backs .

i beleieve she said she likes nothing better to sit under her pergola when its pppppppppp ing doon and singing in the rain ( tis ok coz she normally wears her rubber suit) she def gonna whop me voluminous ahahahah

27 Apr, 2010

 

Hywel and Flori, exams are a real problem - I don't know how many nightmares they caused me for decades after I wrote the last one - they should be abolished, there are better ways to assess a person's abilities.

For example, at school, any teacher knows very well how much each pupil knows.

27 Apr, 2010

 

Davey, I do worry about your fixation with sling-backs~do you think you might need help?????? lol! I don't do soggy,well, not often or when I can help it that is! As to sitting under my pergola,and singing, well, it has been known,but will pass on the rubber suit thank you tee hee hee :~))

Gurth, I couldn't agree more!!! Our new car decided to pack up just as we got to the College to take our Garden Design exam last year, and I was more concerned as to how we were going to get home afterwards, than sitting down working through an exam..........it was 45mins of hell, take my word for it! How I scraped through it I will never know lol! ( And it took 6months to get the results! I was a wreck!!!) :~(( Am NOT looking forward to week 10,when that dreaded paper lies in wait for me again...............lolx

27 Apr, 2010

 

old students never die they just increase their diet of fruitloaf and nuts

28 Apr, 2010

 

'Whatever' ! I think one of the measures of a great blog Flori, is in the responses it stimulates - looks like you're a natural ! 'That is so unfair' !
Good luck with the course and any nuggets of wisdom you throw our way will be gratefully received. 'Laters' ! :-))

28 Apr, 2010

 

och muddy flori is a luvly fruitloafer ( one of a kind thank god - only joking) havent know her long but shes a cool one and one of goys characters

cheers davey

28 Apr, 2010

 

Muddy and Davey, thank you both for your kind words,though is being deemed a 'goy character' one of them I wonder???? LOL! Don't know about being a natural when it comes to blogging Muddy, I was a gibbbering idiot doing my first one, and not that much better, doing my second!!! I am just so lucky to have met such lovely people who post such kind comments Muddy,and catch on to my train of thought, lol,as I really enjoy humour, and hope I don't offend some of my GoY friends when I wander off on a tangent,as it's not meant to, but a laugh can brighten up someones bad day,and that can't be a bad thing in my book :~))

Have got my second lesson at college tonight,so hope to be a bit wiser when I come out than when I go in~I always live in hope ha ha ha!!! Will see what nuggets of wisdom I can throw your way Muddy lol :~))

Davey,can't help but feel our wacky sense of humour is well matched, but you do keep me on my toes my friend,and as to being called 'cool',that has got to be a first in 48 years!!!!!!!!! ha ha ha x

Thanks to everyone who took the time out to post a comment on this blog,I feel very lucky to have you all out there and supporting me,and it really is appreciated xxxx

Raff says 'Thank you ' for his belated birthday greetings,or the equivalent of that in doggy speak, and I feel 48 going on 170, trying to keep up with all Davey's quips!

I've just read this blog Flori, good for you; you are a student again! I was (kind of) in your shoes some years ago (that was autumn 2006!) and I was the oldest of all the classmates (and much older too)! That was a bit embarrassing but who cares? Heeee heee! Good luck, and I look forward to reading some more! Happy birthday Raff!!

5 May, 2010

 

Thank you Tommy! Our class this year is only a small one,there's about 12 of us,but it's proving really interesting! I didn't know if it would interest anyone else, so took a bit of a flyer on this blog,but the Goyers here, have been truly wonderful and informative,and so warm regarding this blog,that I am hoping to keep adding updates.Posted my 2nd one last sunday, and the reception has been wonderful so far.......Thank you for getting in touch, Tommy :~))
Ps, Raff says 'Thank you' by the way! Tee hee hee!

hello:)
how nice to find another student:) I am a student of Garden Design course, just finishing my second year, just doing my final design, and struggling with my Garden History journal (already missed a deadline, but started my part time job in April, didn't want to rush my assignment as wanted to learn about it really) . .. what a coincidence, lol. I will read your blogs in my free time, hope to learn a lot:) and it's never too late to study I believe:)
and of course hugs and kisses for Raff on his birthday:)

30 May, 2010

 

Hello Kasia, it's nice to meet you! I did an 10wk course on Garden Design last year, which was really interesting, and after a very long 6month wait, found out I had passed the exam, and the exam for this Garden History course is at the end of next month, so only a few weeks left to cram everything into this head of mine! Couldn't agree more, you are never too old to learn something new! It's lovely to meet another student in this field of study :~)) Raffie sends a sloopy lick over your way to say thank you for his birthday wish, lol!

31 May, 2010

 

48, hey! LOL! You're younger than mum! here I am thinking you were a nice retired old dear who lived out in the country spending most of her waking hours tending her Clems.
Raffie is soooooo cute!!!!! Frances says hello!

16 Aug, 2010

 

You are so for the high jump, my girl...retired old dear indeed! I am a teenager inside this battered body, just like our ever youthful Ba....age is just a state of mind...oh boy, am I in trouble! LOL! Raffie says hello to his favourite girl!

17 Aug, 2010

 

My mum's fave quote is:
"You're only young once, but anyone can be immature."

17 Aug, 2010

 

Oh how true that is, lol! :~))

17 Aug, 2010

 

The Tomato obsession has got the better of me, I had to come and check out your age, alas I find I'm older than your good self ;-0

17 Aug, 2010

 

Hello Annella! Lovely to have you here with us! Oh dear, the 'Tom' has got you too, eh? My outer shell is almost 49 now, but the inner bit feels 107 today,lol! :~))

17 Aug, 2010

 

I know that feeling all too well Flori :-))

17 Aug, 2010

 

Hahaha, thanks Annella, it takes a sympathetic soul to empathise! I just can't do these late nights as I used too when I was a teenager.....tragic I know! Great to meet you! :~))

17 Aug, 2010

 

I remember being sort of awake all of the time when I was younger (more Zombie like at work the next day though). Had one more go at it when my ex left 7 years ago, not sure where the energy came from but I partied like I was 18 again!! Very glad there will be no repeat performances at 50 :-))

17 Aug, 2010

 

It does has an annoying habit of catching up with you, doesn't it,lol! There's a child within all of us, so I keep being told, I must admit, thanks to my crazy Goyer chums, I seem to be able to locate it all too easily just recently....Am a great believer in the gift of laughter, and if you can brighten up just one person's day with a smile, it is all worth it, lol :~))x

17 Aug, 2010

 

Way to go Flori !!

17 Aug, 2010

 

Lol! You have made my day already for me, Annella~bless you! :~)))))))See? I'm positively beaming!!!x

17 Aug, 2010

 

All that matters in the end is that you loved :o)))
That's what they say: very true!

19 Aug, 2010

 

That is such a lovely sentiment, Pip, and all too true my dear friend! :~)))x

20 Aug, 2010

 

I love you Flori......but get the feeling you want me to have therepy alone...

20 Aug, 2010

 

Oh Annella......how can you think that? Whatever impression gave you that idea? Not moi, surely????? LOL! :~))

20 Aug, 2010

 

Ohhhhh you two ;o))))

20 Aug, 2010

 

Can't we just forget Sir Tom and be friends?? Get the feeling the answer is NO as I type this..

21 Aug, 2010

 

Of course not, Annella, if Ba heard you she would be devastated, such a noble creature as a Duck Tom being desacrated by a young whippersnapper such as you ...

22 Aug, 2010

 

I meant Tom Jones Pip :-))

22 Aug, 2010

 

Whoops, oh of course we can forget him.....

22 Aug, 2010

 

Tom Jones has pips!!!?????

22 Aug, 2010

 

Old people's music is something the world can live without :o)
Tom doesn't have pips, he has seeds - quite different.

22 Aug, 2010

 

Quite a lot of seeds over many years :-))

22 Aug, 2010

 

You be careful, Annella, our Pip is a mere babe compared to us....don't know if she's got as far as the birds and bees yet, or in our case, the Tom and Pips...
LOL! She could start asking THOSE awkward questions, you know the ones...
You and I will always be friends, Annella, Tom or no Tom! LOL! :~))x

Hello Ba! :~))))))))))x

22 Aug, 2010

 

Glad to hear it Flori, we can't let those ageing Toms come between us!!! Women used to throw him their Knic......sorry pants at him, I've just rememberd Pip will read this :-))))

22 Aug, 2010

 

i never really understood why women did that, must have been awful draughty going home....., especially around the Kyber Pass, nasty air currents in that area so I've been told....or maybe that's a meteorolgical fact....??

22 Aug, 2010

 

hmmm ,,,lol ;-)

22 Aug, 2010

 

Flori I'm going to tell you a secret and I want you to keep it to yourself, here we go....I have not worn pants for 20 years +!!!! Can't stand the things and have never missed them and I would like to think of the Mistral wind breezing through. I was alawys pulling them out of certain areas and decided I'd had enough, so have been commando ever since. There you go ,I am a very liberated women :-)))))))

22 Aug, 2010

 

I've never been so insulted in all my life, Flori, of course I know about the Pips and the Toms, and knickers too, and you've never heard my infamous joke about Dad and Dave's French holiday,now have you?

22 Aug, 2010

 

I think you should tell It Pip :-))

23 Aug, 2010

 

Totally agree, Annella, though watch out that you don't overstep the guidelines Pip...lol! And there was I trying to protect you....but insult you? Never Pippin!!!

By the way, thank you for sharing, Annella, I think way too much info just shared amongst 500,000 members, but we'll keep it quiet! lol!x

23 Aug, 2010

 

If you really want to hear it I'll PM you, but I'm warning you!

23 Aug, 2010

 

You have to PM me too Pip.......please

23 Aug, 2010

 

Oh OK! But if I get flagged it'll be your fault lol

24 Aug, 2010

 

You can send it to me too Pip... please ...after you have sent it to Annella... ;-)

24 Aug, 2010

 

So miss sly boots..leaving me out are you?:-[

24 Aug, 2010

 

Wow, Pippin,this joke of yours is really in huge demand! Whatever you do, don't leave our Managing Director out (That's Ba, to you and me!) or you just might find yourself out of BAT....and we wouldn't want that, or we'd feel really flat...you'd be out on a mat, no more Pipc pat-ter, and that would be cr.....really awful for us left here! Tee hee hee, the tablets are really kicking in today girls!

Rich, how lovely to find you here! You must be our Knight in shining armour upon your trusty steed, rushing to our rescue from the madness that has infiltrated this blog....no? oh, you just wandered on here by accident? oh well, back to the grindstone ladies....least Rich's horse has left us some goodies for our gardens ...get the shovel Annella..... We'll just hose you down afterwards...

24 Aug, 2010

 

I get all the good jobs :-)))

24 Aug, 2010

 

Don't they say that 'where's there muck, there's brass' Annella??Tee hee hee! :~)

24 Aug, 2010

 

HA ha ! don't know if I am a knight in shining armour Flori...lol. I am a bit of a night bird though lately as I find it difficult to sleep.. I usually end up listening to someones music and having a chat to friends on the net. There are a lot of relatively unknown artists around who have lovely voices and musicians who could beat the socks off many professionals. Have to go now ....where's my horse? have you finished with my shovel yet Annella.....lol ;-)

24 Aug, 2010

 

Night bird? I hope you're a nice owl... not one of those big mean looking ones that eat defenseless lemmings.....

24 Aug, 2010

 

Lol, Rich, us night owls need to stick together! This is the only way that I ever get to catch up on the comments, without being bombarded by tons more!
Glad to hear you still enjoying your music, and couldn't agree more!! Annella's our first rate 'mucker out', she has a way with a shovel that would put others to shame! Whiffs a bit though! LOL! :~)))x

24 Aug, 2010

 

Pheeeww, I can smell it from Sydney lol

24 Aug, 2010

 

Pip, you just wait till she gets back on here....maybe you can borrow Rich's shovel to help dig your way out of the hole you've just landed in!!! LOL!x

24 Aug, 2010

 

Ha ha good one Flori --glad my shovel is getting good use on the forum it'll cost a packet to send it to Sydney though...lol ;-)

24 Aug, 2010

 

I knew there was a flaw in my idea, blast, I think you just might have found it Rich! lol! Oh well, Pip, back to just using a large spoon...this could take a while....hahaha!

24 Aug, 2010

 

Very funny! Just PM'd you Flori, Richard you're next :o)

24 Aug, 2010

 

Just PM'd Annella too, is there anyone else wants the joke???

24 Aug, 2010

 

Oh noooo! You've all gone and fallen asleep, and now I'm stranded, I have to wiat 'til tomorrow for feedbck on THE JOKE.....

24 Aug, 2010

 

Pip, that joke was SOOOOOO funny, I love it!! I am chuckling away as I type! Sorry, didn't mean to desert you, but got called away......I hope everyone else enjoys that pm as much as I did! Thank you sweetheart for sending it! You are an absolute treasure....xxx

25 Aug, 2010

 

Thank you for the Pm Pip made me LOL! one concern though, is it a true story?!!
I'm not smelly, I have a bath at least once a week, twice when there's a full moon~~~~~~~~~~~~Oh and did you find where I threw the shrovel Rich?

25 Aug, 2010

 

Don't worry Annella it's not true, glad you enjoyed it Flori :o)
Sent it to Rich as well... wonder what he's thinking....

25 Aug, 2010

 

Ha ha Pip very funny my friend I sent you a PM ... I was blushing when I read it ..lol
I'm still looking for my shovel that you lost Annella....ha ha you owe me big time..lol ;-)

26 Aug, 2010

 

Glad to hear that you enjoyed it too, but blushing, Rich? Surely not! lol! Think we might need to dig out the metal detector Annella....that shovel has got to be here somewhere.... :~)))x

26 Aug, 2010

 

I think all the strong, pongy smells brought on my migrain and I get a bit fuzzy with it, now where did I throw that shovel?

26 Aug, 2010

 

But just think of the fantastic roses you will have in your garden next year, Annella!! Hope the head not quite as fuzzy now :~(( Think we might have to put up a reward for Richard's shovel.....can you give us a description of it Rich???? We might have to interrogate Annella as to it's last location, ladies (oops! And you too Rich!lol)x

26 Aug, 2010

 

Congratulations Flori, I am proud to present to you your 'Bornagain's flowerpot' award!!!!
That shovel's gotta be here somewhere? Anyone BATted it by mistake?

27 Aug, 2010

 

May I too add my congratulations, where's my joke Pip? :-)

27 Aug, 2010

 

Thank you Pip, I am very touched, (but most of you know that anyway by now!) All these awards!! I'm running out of space on my mantlepiece!
How could you have overlooked our Ba, Pip? I know that like you she is a trendy young thing, and we might have to explain it to her due to her innocence, but really, Pip, I think she needs to see it too...(You could SOOO regret this Ba,lol!)
Thank you for your congrats too, Ba, I am just working on the 10th page of my acceptance speech as I type.... :~)))))))))))))))))))))x (PM'd you Ba)

27 Aug, 2010

 

Well done Flori you have a very popular blog here my friend. The shovel was last seen on the back of a lorry, with a load of its friends, heading South to help dig a big trench. This will help drain the UK south coast after all the rain it has had there lately...lol ;-)

27 Aug, 2010

 

Hi Rich, good to see you again! Oh, I think I'm feeling a ditty coming over me...

'Oh woe is me, what will we do? Richie is now sad and blue.
Astride his steed, he lent his shovel, where is it now?'Tis such a puzzle!
Annella threw it in a ditch, after digging manure, so wiffy and rich,
And now it's gone, it's with its friends, to put in drains up near Southend!
Our excess water to remove, it is helping out by digging a groove.
Rich, we will replace your trusty spade, when Annella next gets paid!

As he turns to go,oh oh, we're in trouble! Trigger deposits, someone get me a shovel!!!

Sorry folks, when the Ditty strikes, who am I to argue....??Tee hee hee :~))

27 Aug, 2010

 

Ha ha very good Flori - that took some doing... you will just have to set it to some music now ;-)

27 Aug, 2010

 

Dig all that smelly ~=#* and pay for the spade!!!!!!! You are having a laff Flori!!!!
Nice ditty though.....

27 Aug, 2010

 

Tee hee good ditty Flori! Will pm you with the joke as soon as I get home from work Ba. I understand how you feel now Annella - it's always much more fun at work isn't it!!!

27 Aug, 2010

 

NO it's not Pip..... I haven't got the time to shovel Richard's manure in between my day job and everything else, cooking, cleaning, laundry etc.... and then they want you to be 'NICE' to them................

28 Aug, 2010

 

Why thank you ladies, oops, and Richard~I am so glad you had a titter at my ditty too..phew!, glad I got That the right way around! Over to you for the music though lad!
Well, Annella, you did lose his shovel..... :~))

28 Aug, 2010

 

Migrain memory loss Pip.......I can't remember my kids names when it happens.....I sometimes wish my memory wouldn't come back....

28 Aug, 2010

 

Ahhh well the boss think's I'm working anyway....

28 Aug, 2010

 

I have been 'working away' on the computer lately Pip there is such a lot to catch up on I find. :-)
Hope you do not lose yor memory at your age Annella.. and can remember where you put my spade...lol ;-)
Lovely ditty Flori - you are quite an accomplished composer;-)

28 Aug, 2010

 

Ah gee Rich, I have been known to have my moments....most of them on here, come to think of it....lol! :~)))x

31 Aug, 2010

 

I think you need to accept that the spade has gone forever and ever and ever...............

1 Sep, 2010

 

Morning Annella! I think our Rich still pining after his beloved spade, he really does need to get out more...lol! :~)))x

1 Sep, 2010

 

Good afternoon Flori :-))))

1 Sep, 2010

 

Good afternoon Annella! How are you on this fine day??

1 Sep, 2010

 

Ok, will be better when I can go home :-))

1 Sep, 2010

 

Are you on the works computer again? Tut tut, you will topple off of it one of these days you know....don't say that I didn't warn you..... :~)))x

1 Sep, 2010

 

Hi Flori and Annella glad I'm not in work. I am sat in the garden under the gazzebo with a glass of wine..care to join me my friends?

1 Sep, 2010

 

Make mine a glass of dry white, and Annella's a triple vodka, no ice (she soooo hates it to be diluted!lol), and we are on our way...well will be, once I dust Annella down from toppling off the top of her works computer that is.....! Anyone else wanna join us over at Rich's???? LOL!

1 Sep, 2010

 

One glass of dry and one triple vodka, no ice, on the way. Then you can both help me with some weeding and hand-digging of the garden. I have to use my hands to dig now, - I used to have a spade at one time ...lol :-(

1 Sep, 2010

 

Hang on there, Richie lad, you never said anything about hard work....maybe I just might need to rethink my trip over, and as to the lost spade.....Annella, start digging...!!! :~)))

1 Sep, 2010

 

It will take more than one drink to get me digging or shoveling for you lot again!

1 Sep, 2010

 

ha ha Annella ......its good exercise you know ;-)
Flori : - you will have to change your labourer this one sounds too expensive!! ;-)

1 Sep, 2010

 

Very expensive, you lot can't afford me!!

1 Sep, 2010

 

Lemon lime and bitters for me Rich, please.... oh for that magical age of 18 which I have yet to attain!!!!

1 Sep, 2010

 

I am much older than you then Pip I was like a twenty nine year old last February ( well felt like two of them if the truth be told.....lol)

2 Sep, 2010

 

I think all the people on this site are older than me! I haven't met any other teens yet.

2 Sep, 2010

 

ha ha Pip you are a scream that's for sure ;-)

2 Sep, 2010

 

But Pippin, we are all so young at heart.....You just have exceptional taste in the people you hang around with on-line, that's all. If they all knew it was this much fun, they'd all be on here...We might not have the quantity, but oh we so have the quality, isn't that so Richard and Annella??? LOL! :~)))))x

2 Sep, 2010

 

That's true Flori we share our gardening ideas and thoughts here, but it is still important to forge friendships and have some fun also at the same time. It is when you have friends and can share things together you realise how good life can be.
...end of sermon for today...lol ;-)

2 Sep, 2010

 

Thank you Pastor Peej, what a lovely sentiment...See, Pip, where else would you get such wise words than our own little piece of heaven here on GoY??

2 Sep, 2010

 

True Flori...heaven on earth my friend ..... ;-)

2 Sep, 2010

 

Yes indeed... a great place to unwind after a hard nights sleep, like I do... or a hard days work, like all you ladies [whoops - and Rich] do!

2 Sep, 2010

 

Don't worry Pip, Rich becomes 'Richina' on his cross-dressing nights, and so I hear that is tonight....still got those fishnets Rich? Cos the fishermen are asking for them back....lol!

2 Sep, 2010

 

Fishnets eh? not a burlesque dancer by night are you Rich?

2 Sep, 2010

 

I can be whatever..innit lol :-)

2 Sep, 2010

 

Oh I hear his 'Can Can' is quite something Pip, though I wince every time I see him do the 'splits', just brings tears to the eyes my friend...(Yeah, I know, talk to the hand coz the face ain't listening.....) lol

2 Sep, 2010

 

I can see the flogging coming, sorry I meant flagging....

2 Sep, 2010

 

Yes most def...

2 Sep, 2010

 

Ha ha I used to go dancing five nights a week at one time for many years. I could rhumba, tango and waltz you young ladies around all at the same time no problem....may I have the pleasure ...lol ;-)

3 Sep, 2010

 

No, not tonight thank you Rich :-)))) I've got a headache........

3 Sep, 2010

 

Have you been at the wine again Annella or should I be sympathetic to you and offer you a paracetamol....lol

3 Sep, 2010

 

No I'm feeling poorly, and Flori wasn't telling fibs, I only drink vodka :-))

3 Sep, 2010

 

Take care then Annella hope you get better soon. At least it is the weekend, and maybe you can relax a bit :-)

3 Sep, 2010

 

I hope you were joking Annella otherwise you won't need paracetamol, you'll need and ambulance ;o)

4 Sep, 2010

 

Don't worry Pip I know how to mix them.....

4 Sep, 2010

 

Water, paracetomol, vodka, more vodka etc........

4 Sep, 2010

 

Take it easy on the vodka tho' Annella my friend :-)

4 Sep, 2010

 

Where's Flori?? on my home page are pictures of young hunks ...all single!! Anyone else got these? Probably they've heard of my gorgeousness:-)

4 Sep, 2010

 

I aint got them Ba, thats not fair.....

4 Sep, 2010

 

yes you are gorgeous Ba but careful not to overdo things ...lol ;-)
There may be a spare one or two for you Annella if you haven't still got your headache.......lol :-)

4 Sep, 2010

 

If they look like Leonardo Di Caprio I feel just fine ....Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

4 Sep, 2010

 

I can see that you are feeling much better now Annella..............lol ;-)

5 Sep, 2010

 

Just went to put a question on ...and I'm being offered on line Masters Programs from Liverpool Uni ....must. at last, be recognition of my genius:-))

5 Sep, 2010

 

Looks and brains Ba you have it all going for you when are you starting Uni ?

5 Sep, 2010

 

How true Richard:-)) I may give Uni a miss though, with my brains......what could they possibly teach me lol:-)

5 Sep, 2010

 

Ha Ha! I'm sure that you could teach them a thing or two Ba!.......lol ;-)

5 Sep, 2010

 

Ba, you know your genius sets us all in the shade here....I will have you know that it's not just any tasty hunk I could cast my eye at......I am most discerning...lol (and I missed it too, oh darn!) How's the head Annella? Sorry to hear you've been poorly my friend... :~(((

Hi Pip! How's my favourite Antipodean???? Hi Rich.....you can tango me around the floor if the offer's still open.....as a musician I have a great sense of tempo you'll be glad to know...promise that I won't step on your tootsies too often...lol!

5 Sep, 2010

 

OOOO Thank you Flori, may I have the pleasure of the next dance ?...would the Argentinian Tango be OK for you ? I have my steel toecap dancing shoes on...lol;-)

5 Sep, 2010

 

Well...Rich, it's an awful long way to go just for a dance....I was thinking of something a little more local....in Britain perhaps?? lol As to the steel toecaps, you sure know how to sweet-talk a gal, don'tcha my friend?!!! :~)))

5 Sep, 2010

 

Ha ha Flori hope I don't step on your feet when I am dancing ;-)

5 Sep, 2010

 

As if you would....hahaha! :~))

5 Sep, 2010

 

sent a PM Flori :-)

5 Sep, 2010

 

Thanks for the pm, have replied about the Clematis, hope it helps! Any other probs, just pm me back.:~))

5 Sep, 2010

 

Thanks Flori will do :-)

5 Sep, 2010

 

I've got pretty single women now:-(

5 Sep, 2010

 

Ah Ba! I am so glad there is someone else out there chatting to us, Richard and I thought we were all alone out there in cyberspace....
Ok, so you've had hunky young guys, and now you have pretty single woman...hmmmm, mine just comes up with Doors and rain deflectors.....I am obviously not travelling in the same circles as you my friend!! :~((

Glad to hear it helped, Rich...us tillers of the soil must stick together lol! :~)))))

5 Sep, 2010

 

That's true Flori we must dig for victory in this country.....doors? rain deflectors? pretty woman? are you talking about a transit van and Roy Orbison Flori?

5 Sep, 2010

 

Lol! No, I have been searching for a rain deflector for our new back door, and have now noticed that I keep getting adverts coming up on my homepage about it...Ba, has been getting Hunky Guys and Single Girls, so I don't even want to think what she has been searching for....tee hee hee! :~))

5 Sep, 2010

 

Is the rain deflector for top or bottom of door Flori sounds like you have rain coming in :-(

5 Sep, 2010

 

Flori and Richard and the Argentine Tango eh?? Sounds like wedding bells are in the air, just don't tell the OH Flori!!! You could go tripping up the aisle after Annella and her OHtobe, to the strains of Here comes the Bride(s), I might even BAT myself over for the occasion!!!

6 Sep, 2010

 

Ha ha I don't think my OH would be too pleased about the situaton either Pip....lol :-o so best not to say anything !...lol ;-)

6 Sep, 2010

 

Young Pip, I am so going to get you a wooden spoon! lol! That's it Richard...she's sussed us out...you and your Argentinian Tango! Pip, I have had a hard enough job training my OH over the last 28 years, am way too long in the tooth to want to start training another....Hahaha! Sorry to disappoint......

Hi Rich, well if you have stopped blushing over Pip's last remark, you poor man, in answer to your question..My OH has recently fitted a stable effect back door, but we now have to fit a rain deflector on the bottom of it to stop the wet weather getting in, oh it has been fun! I love my new door, but oh boy, it has come with it's own set of problems....I wouldn't mind but it was my idea, now the OH is going around with a face like thunder and gnashing of teeth!!! :~(((

6 Sep, 2010

 

Ha ha Pip I made a nice comment on your new spring Blog and there you go causing me and Flori some grief with our OH's lol :-)
I have stopped blushing now Flori and it looks as though we will be OK to dance but maybe the twist as we don't want any more grief by doing the tango...... Did you want the stable door to stop the horses getting in to your kitchen Flori after they have eaten all the new clematis that you bought? ;-)

6 Sep, 2010

 

I am in enough trouble with my OH over the bleep bleep stable door as he now calls it lol! Very funny Rich, there's always one comedian isn't there~just my luck for you to have got in the first shot! As to the twist...well if I did that, think you might need St John's ambulance on standby...tee hee hee :~))

6 Sep, 2010

 

I thought your door was like a proper stable door Flori split half way up and you can open either half...... so you can go in and out doing the limbo or the hurdles.....lol :-)

6 Sep, 2010

 

Yes it is, Rich, have you been spying on me out there? My limbo is truly something to witness....LOL!

6 Sep, 2010

 

Sounds good Flori hope you can get the rain deflector then you will be OK my friend :-)

6 Sep, 2010

 

Well, my OH has done a lot of work on it, (with much muttering under his breath!), and today it really piddled down, and low and behold, no water! We still have to fit the rain deflector, but that is not a bad result....so far....lol!

6 Sep, 2010

 

It looks like it is getting sorted now then Flori so that will be good for you and OH to have a new door :-))

6 Sep, 2010

 

It is a great door, and I love the stable two section bit (as you can see, I know all me technical terms!), but never guessed how complex a job it would become...., this could take weeks for him to talk to me again...hahaha :~))

6 Sep, 2010

 

doors are really interesting my friend you can get wooden ones, metal ones, plastic ones with hinges left, right, top and even on the bottom :-)

6 Sep, 2010

 

OH, Richina? Didn't know you had one of them!

7 Sep, 2010

 

Flori-- is it a 'truffle' for 100--- Hywel needs one --- NOW!

7 Sep, 2010

 

Morning Pam! Oh you have brightend up my day! I have just been on Hywel's blog, doesn't he look great, and obviously so very happy....Where's that Pip to hand out awards when you need one??? lol Will see what I can do...x

7 Sep, 2010

 

Hi Flori-- I havn't been about much lately but I've nipped in now & then to keep an eye on you all... ;0))

7 Sep, 2010

 

Hi Flori great blog you have here my friend and you will soon be getting an award for this one too. Hee hee Pip, I have quite a few doors in my house and find them so useful here are a few things I do with them:-))
Open them...when I want to go in another room
Close them to keep out draughts, or keep the noise in my daughter's bedroom!
Paint them, varnish them, oil their hinges
Put coat hanger over the top of them or on the handle for my shirt
Have letters posted through them
Even lifted them off hinges and used them as a paste table!
Spy through the keyhole! lol....

7 Sep, 2010

 

Noticed you had been a bit quiet, Pam, we have missed you my friend, but lovely to have you popping in on here! We are trying to behave...honest...! :~))

Hello Richard...thank you for your kind comments about my blog, am really glad you have logged onto us and slotted in so well...as to your doors...barking as a box of spanners dear friend...you one seriously funny man! LOL! Am just going out to feed me 'orse now.....! :~)))))x

8 Sep, 2010

 

When you go out in the garden to feed the nag Flori watch you don't trip up over my pair of knitted spades, box of spanners, knitted swimming trunks, paint, varnish, hinges, oil can, shirt and paste table...lol ;-)

8 Sep, 2010

 

Hahaha~I can hardly move in my garden for all your handmade bits and bobs,Rich, think I need to start charging you rental!! Either that, or hold a car boot sale.....lol!

8 Sep, 2010

8 Sep, 2010

 

Ha ha Flori you must be talking about Hywel not me ..as he is the one that is a joy to know :-)

8 Sep, 2010

 

I've awarded Hywel with the Bornagain's Flowerpot :o)))

8 Sep, 2010

 

Aww come on Rich we all love you too!

8 Sep, 2010

 

You becareful, Pip, that Richard will get a big head at this rate! You are a joy to us ladies of a certain age too, Rich...you have been invited on the Cruise and to Pip's haven't you~you are classed as 'One of the girls' now my friend!!
Am glad you found Hywel's blog, Pip :~))))))x

9 Sep, 2010

 

ha ha ...of a certain age...you have a lovely way with words Flori and glad I am one of the girls now - I will be able to borrow your high heels and lippy ;-)))

9 Sep, 2010

 

Did you ever see a film with Judi Dench in it, called 'The last of the Blonde Bombshells', Rich? If you have, you will understand exactly what I mean, about being one of the girls...hahaha!! It is a great film if you ever get the chance to catch it!! :~)))x

9 Sep, 2010

 

Anyone else a little concerned about Richard, or is it just me?

9 Sep, 2010

 

was it you with a broken leg a while ago Richard?

9 Sep, 2010

 

Ha ha thanks for your concern Annella my friend, I am as 'normal' as anyone else on here really! I have added you as a friend (favourite) as I could see you were worried about me :-)
Thanks Pam yes it was me, I fell in the garden about twelve weeks ago now, I am getting around much better thanks. I can walk quite a distance unaided now, I broke my femur (thigh) when I fell in the garden, I tripped over the leg of a garden chair, and hadn't even had anything to drink beforehand either !...lol :-))

9 Sep, 2010

 

very pleased to hear you are mobile again--- as Annella was worried about you I wondered if you'd hit your head............

9 Sep, 2010

 

That wasn't what I was worried about Pam, although it would account for some of his strange comments :-))))))

9 Sep, 2010

 

Ha ha Pam and Annella I have had a good chuckle over your comments that's for sure ....lol :-)))

9 Sep, 2010

 

Chuckle? You need a perscription........

9 Sep, 2010

 

Hello Pam,Annella and Rich! Looks like you are getting the stick today my friend, makes a change from me,lol! I think Rich was perfectly fine...until...he fell in with us lot...there really is no remedy, Rich, it is a case of 'Abandon hope all ye who venture on here...'...you are now a part of our lost cause, but don't worry, my friend, you are in the best of company..... :~)))))))x

9 Sep, 2010

 

He is safe with us......

9 Sep, 2010

 

Evening Annella! Safe, yes, totally barking, without a doubt! Birds of a feather, springs to mind somehow... :~))

9 Sep, 2010

 

Good evening Flori and yes he has found his niche with us :-))))

9 Sep, 2010

 

Does this poor guy really know what he has let himself in for, working alongside us on here? Does he realise just how much therapy he might need to ever be considered safe to let out into the real world again? Oh dear Richard, it isn't too late to run screaming in the opposite direction you know.....hahaha!x

9 Sep, 2010

 

I wouldn't advise that Flori, I think our Rich was already a bit.....you know what I mean, don't make me say it..

9 Sep, 2010

 

...of a good looker Annella dressed in his finery...lol :-)
thanks for your support Flori I am sure I'll be safe here with all of you. I feel that I can trust you all now and any of you can borrow my wheelbarrow, spade or any other items of my clothing that you can find in my wardrobe...;-))

10 Sep, 2010

 

Call your trio 'Birds of a feather' Annella and Rich :o)
Flori I'm proud to award you a 'Truffle' award

12 Sep, 2010

12 Sep, 2010

 

Oh hang on... trio's three isn't it.... darn I just ruined my street cred with that one! Sorry... I menat 'duet'

12 Sep, 2010

 

Hello, it's only me....! Thank you for my 'Truffle' award Pip, can I eat it now or should I save it for later??? I do hear that our Richard, turns heads up there in Leicester, that must be the satin pantaloons, purple velvet long jacket, and cavalier hat fitted with peacock feathers, oh and don't forget the thigh length leather boots, such finery indeed, along with devastating dashing good looks! And he gardens as well! Ladies, do we realise what a treasure we have in our midst??? Pippin, a duet means they sing...., so guess it could be a very melodic comedy act...tee hee hee! :~))X
Hello Ba....x

14 Sep, 2010

14 Sep, 2010

15 Sep, 2010

 

Do you get presents every day too Pam? Think I might try that:-)

15 Sep, 2010

 

Hi all and birthday wishes to you for yesterday too, lovely Flori. :-))

15 Sep, 2010

 

Hello everyone, thank you for all youy birthday wishes! I am 49 years young now!

15 Sep, 2010

 

well it means you can eat out one day-- have a takeaway another , go on a visit-whatever,if there's something you don't want to do well " its my birthday week"! what I didn't say is that I share my birthday with my 'other half' except he's older than me!! And he never forgets the birthday .......

15 Sep, 2010

 

Its my sons birthday tomorrow he will be 29 ..his mate said he will be one year nearer to dressing in clothes similar to his Dad...lol ;-)

15 Sep, 2010

 

How old are you Rich? if you were a girl I wouldn't ask, but cross dressers I think is ok :-)))))

15 Sep, 2010

 

Oh and I missed the obvious one there.....Is he also going to wear tankinis later on in life? Lol

15 Sep, 2010

 

Ha ha I am 58 Annella and just retired early so am really enjoying myself as you can see lol :-)

15 Sep, 2010

 

I'm 50 and now they change the retirement age!

15 Sep, 2010

 

I could leave when I was 60 Annella so only a couple of years early really. :-)

15 Sep, 2010

 

Hello you two~how you doing?

15 Sep, 2010

 

Hi Flori I'm ok, just got to work until I'm 65. Rich has got away at 58, must have been in one of those goverment jobs like my dad :-)))))
But Whateverrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr....

15 Sep, 2010

 

Nice to catch up with you again Annella, sent you a pm earlier.
That Rich could charm the birds out of the trees, it must be that Welsh blood in him....Still, I suppose that at least we keep him out of mischief being on GoY, with all that time on his hands...though I think this knitting thing worries me, I now read that he has started knitting Wheelbarrows and Greenhouses, and to think it all started with you misplacing Trigger, the 'orse's shovel.....Bet the clicking and flashing of superfast knitting needles must indeed be echoing aroung the hills of Leicester, even as we speak! LOL! :~)))))x

15 Sep, 2010

 

Happy birthday for the 14th Flori :o))))))))))))))))
Knitting is taking over this whole website! It's like the woolen aphids.....
I can just see Peter Cundall... "nouw this is the extroimely rare.... woollen aphid. To treat it, joost spray it with this pesticoide... which you can foind at yourr local garden centrPOOF...Arrrghhhhh"

15 Sep, 2010

 

It's Richard dropping one that worries me Pip, or casting off unexpectedly....lol!

16 Sep, 2010

 

LOL do I detect a double meaning?

16 Sep, 2010

 

What exactly are you trying to pin on him now?

16 Sep, 2010

 

It's the difference between a male and female woollen aphid so don't worry Flori ....

16 Sep, 2010

 

Would I be making inuendo's on here Pip? Moi? I am cleaner than clean...Half the time you lot have to explain things to me cos I am that naive! :~O

16 Sep, 2010

 

It's only cos you're 49 and not a TYT don't worry :o)))))

16 Sep, 2010

 

You cheeky devil! I am 49 years YOUNG now! It's just that all that is hip and happening seems to be passing me by just recently! I still retain my youthful innocence I will have you know young lady~Pip, stop having hysterics, get back off the floor, what's so funny????

16 Sep, 2010

 

Did someone mention alcohol???

16 Sep, 2010

 

Why hello there Annella! lol, How you doing?

16 Sep, 2010

 

I'm fine hun, just getting ready to go home :-)))

16 Sep, 2010

 

Another dollar earnt then...oh for a nice large lottery win, something with lots and lots of noughts! Guess I should meet them halfway, and buy a ticket first!! lol :~))

16 Sep, 2010

 

I'd say that does help Flori but I buy them and it hasn't helped me. Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee time to go :-))

16 Sep, 2010

 

That must be where I am going wrong then Annella! Hot darn it! I see you are still happily wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeinnnng! (I'm not even going to go there)....I shall resist temptation!! What remarkable self control I have gained since turning 49! LOL!

16 Sep, 2010

 

You are very well controlled Flori ..but by what... or by whom is the question my friend....lol ;-)) x

16 Sep, 2010

 

Aha, it's the tablets Rich if the truth be known! Actually what it really is is that my other Goyer friends are so nutty, I almost appear sane and responsible, I can hardly believe it myself! It's that Annella who keeps leading me into trouble.... lol!

16 Sep, 2010

 

That's so not true Flori, but I will say we all have days when we are nuttier than the others, just means we have a good balanced convo going here :-))

Good for you, it's a great thing to achieve. I hope to do the RHS horticulture diploma next year, it's a lovely career choice!

Rosepetal, the voice of sanity :o)))

25 Sep, 2010

 

Hi Richard!

Hi Richina :o)

26 Sep, 2010

 

Thanks for the welcome back Rosepetal and Pip ;-)

26 Sep, 2010

 

Where exactly did you go ? Wasn't rehab again was it? LOL

27 Sep, 2010

 

Ha ha no Pip it was near Two Dales in the Derbyshire Dales my friend ..but rehab sounds good ;-)

27 Sep, 2010

 

Hello folks, I'm back!!!
A warm welcome to you Rosepetal, and thank you for your comment! I wish you great success in doing your RHS Diploma, my friend, it really is a wonderful career to get in to.... :~))

Hi Rich,Pippin and Annella, did you miss me??? Rehab? Who's going into rehab? Surely that leg of yours hasn't developed a drinking problem has it Rich? I did wonder as it kept dragging you down the pub, even though you kept resisting it and trying to keep it under control.......SO GOOD to have you back with us, Rich, my nutty friend, we girls have missed you a lot! Hope you and the family had a great holiday away, I hear that the scenery is beautiful over there :~)))x

27 Sep, 2010

 

The scenery there is lovely Bev. My leg is much better now thanks and I can walk without any aids now. The leg keeps dragging me down the pub on Wednesday and Saturday evenings though..it has no consideration that I don't want to go there. I kick and scream but it forces me to go..I have given up fighting now and just go. ;-))x

27 Sep, 2010

 

I have two legs like that Rich so I wouldn't worry too much! Lol

27 Sep, 2010

 

Yeah don't worry - we're all behind you {pushing you that is!!!!)

28 Sep, 2010

 

Thanks for the push Pip. :-)
Ha ha Annella it is good to have two working legs again, I'll try not to fall over again next time though :-)

28 Sep, 2010

 

Well if you should, Rich, just make sure that it is on something soft, or add more water to dilute the alcohol. That Annella can be a bad influence on us you know...she is always getting me into trouble....I love it! Tee hee hee :~))))x
Pip, how are you my petal? It seems ages since we last caught up.....I miss you a lot, my little antipodean nutter..... :~((((

28 Sep, 2010

 

Next time I fall over Flori I will make sure that it will be on a grassy area..lol. Come to think of it, if I had left the grass down in the garden instead of putting in the decking I would have been OK. I'm just off out in the garden to rip up the decking and plant grass seed..... anyone got a spare lawnmower? ;-)))

28 Sep, 2010

 

LOL Richard! Thought you had 'Trigger' grazing in the garden, and I'm sure that Ba knows of a billy goat or two if you ask nicely, and then duck! Tee hee hee!

28 Sep, 2010

 

Hello my favourite nutter from across the pond :o) I'll pm you with all my news

29 Sep, 2010

 

Trigger wandered off when there was no more grass for him to eat Flori-he went off in a huff too. He didn't even say goodbye just 'snorted'........lol ;-)

29 Sep, 2010

 

Pippin!!! Got your PM, will Pm back! I have missed you loads!
Ah shucks, Rich,
So your 'orse has gone off course, now you're there filled with remorse, 'cos you had run out of grass, as your decking you built fast, made you fall onto your....butt, we will not linger, as I hate to point the finger, just as well, as I'm a singer! And Trigger is not stopping, cos there is no grass for cropping, and he's off to do some bopping...When he left, he kind of snorted, off to Spritz's Manor halted, her OH is happy,lawn is sorted! :~)))))

Do you know, I sometimes stun myself with my amazing creativity!! Tee hee hee!

29 Sep, 2010

 

You definetely amaze me LOL

30 Sep, 2010

 

And....ahem... I ordered a jingle on my garden centre blog... and I haven't got one yet. Naughty Flori - shirking your work ;o)

30 Sep, 2010

 

The Poet Laureate strikes again...

Jingle/ditty posted Pip C,
See, I'm not really that dipsy,
but I somehow missed your blog about your trip...
But once reminded, I soon rushed,
and my witty lines I gushed,
as you will soon see when you go there in a bit.

How could I have overlooked,
such a post, I soon was hooked,
and now done, even though a little late,
just to show how much you mean,
and I won't charge you a bean,
dedicated just for you,
my antipodean mate! :~)))))))))))))))XXXX

30 Sep, 2010

 

Lovely ditty's Flori I can see you're back on form, ...and going down... a storm!...lol :-)))x

30 Sep, 2010

 

Hello Richard! Hope you liked your 'orse ditty, I thought it would raise a chuckle over there...now that loose trigger has wandered onto pastures new, tee hee hee! Spritz will love all that wonderful manure for her garden too!

Yes Flori's back on form,
her witty ditty warm,
her poetic bend is flowing fast and free.
Another poet in her mist,
Rich has added to her list,
being ever so poetical is he!

His words they flow so very clear,
as I guess you can see here,
and gives out weather warnings
Flori is impressed!
Maybe at sundown, we will draw,
find who's the true poet Laure,
just to find out who is faster and the best! :~)))X

30 Sep, 2010

 

No contest Bev...you win my friend you are much quicker at writing them ;-))

30 Sep, 2010

 

You really are a wizard with those ditties!! Keep 'em coming :o))))))))
