BONG ~ where is my cosmetics order, please ?

411 comments


Hello Bong ~

I’ve hunted high and low but I can’t find my cosmetics order.
Where have you hidden it, please ? :o)

Just to remind you, there are three items…

Come-up-smelling-of-roses Bubble Bath

Evergreen “grass-roots” face pack
……does what it says on the tin.

Special offer ~ compost flavoured lipstick

I’ve been searching everywhere…!

I hunted underneath my Pieris Little Heath, in the ericaceous compost.
This is an “attractive, almost dwarf pieris with glossy small leaves”
…..but it is not concealing the parcel I require…

Conker peered in my wellie, but didn’t even find a sock !

I thought maybe a delivery note could be under my Campanula portenschlagiana Catharina…with its “stunning purple-blue bell shaped flowers, compact habit and green foliage”…
… but nothing hidden there…

Truffle checked out the Greenies box… but it was empty :o( !

My final hope was deep in the foliage of my Pileostegia viburnoides
a wonderful evergreen with white flowers…..
… “Introduced by the renowned plant collector Ernest Wilson in the early 20th Century, this a very hardy and reliable evergreen climber. Happy in most soils and situations, it will cling to a wall or fence with ease. Reasonably slow growing, but certainly worthwhile for the sprays of tiny white flowers produced in late summer and early autumn.” ….
… but not a sign of my package !

Darling Bong, maybe I didn’t hear the doorbell ring…
…so if you’ve delivered the parcel, please tell me where to look …
Thank you. :o)

Does anyone have a suggestion as to where I’ll find it, please ?
.. I’m so hoping Bong will come back and let me know……

Have you asked the flower pot men?

12 Nov, 2009

 

Hi Mavis... I sent the Flower Pot Men an email...
no reply yet..... but good suggestion :o) Thanks.

12 Nov, 2009

 

your welcome.

12 Nov, 2009

 

:o)

12 Nov, 2009

 

I am really puzzled - who's 'Bong', Tt?

12 Nov, 2009

 

Perhaps the garden gnome has hidden it. ?

12 Nov, 2009

 

Hello Spritz...

Bong is my very favourite supplier of exotic cosmetics.
I miss him when I don't see him for a while...

12 Nov, 2009

 

Hope you find it, but i was wondering aswell who is Bong ?

12 Nov, 2009

 

Hello Tulsalady26 ~
Garden gnome was look VERY guilty this afternoon.
I'll put him near the top of the list of suspects.... Thank you :o)

12 Nov, 2009

 

Hi Clarice...
Would you please ask Smokey...
I think he might have some useful information for us.
Thank you. xxx

12 Nov, 2009

 

And here's me thinking it was a play on 'Ding dong .. Avon calling' !! lol Lovely blog TT :~)

12 Nov, 2009

 

Hello Sue...
You are very astute without realising it...
I'm sure Bong would agree and be having a giggle... :o)
Glad you like this blog.
A lot of work went into it ...
and I hope.... very sincerely...
... that it will be appreciated and understood.........

12 Nov, 2009

 

Cheers TT thanks for a great blog, got us quessing:o))

12 Nov, 2009

 

I understand now you've enlightened me, Tt! Love the photos....

12 Nov, 2009

 

Well done TT great blog.I guess that lets him off the hook then ?

12 Nov, 2009

 

Hi Clarice.... I know that Smokey won't let us down...

Hello Spritz.... Glad you like the photos... not very much suitable for photography in my garden right now.... but Conker and Truffle are always ready to star in my screenplays.... :o)

Tulsalady25... whoops, sorry, Tulsalady26 ~
Garden Gnome is still a suspect... please keep your eye on him... Thank you.:o)

12 Nov, 2009

 

TT ..... i too am waiting for a delivery :-(((

Long Acre plants short delivered a Tricyrtis at the beginning of October and despite ringing them and emailing them they STILL HAVENT sent it onto me yet. This is now over 3 weeks later.
Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Isn't it bad when things don't go right ?
:-(((

12 Nov, 2009

 

Hi Louise...

I've looked up Tricyrtis on the internet.... many different lovely varieties... no wonder you are looking forward to receiving yours...
...It is described as the Jewel of the Orient, but surely Long Acre plants is situated in Somerset... not like they are mailing the plant from the Exotic East ? more like the Wet West..... ? !

Good luck with receiving your Tricyrtis...
... and let's hope this blog has an equally happy ending. ;o)

12 Nov, 2009

 

Long Acre IS in this county TT, that's what's making it SO bad.
They said they'd send it on but it's now over 3 weeks ago that they said that, for goodness sake :-((((
It's very poor isn't it ?
I'll give it another week and then just ask for a refund.
I'm fed up with it.

12 Nov, 2009

 

Yes. Not easy to plan your garden work when plants arrive about a month late...
You deserve a refund AND a free plant of your choice for your inconvenience. :o)

12 Nov, 2009

 

I think it might be sleepy ask him when he wakes up. if not ask sneezy, he could be alergic not good .

12 Nov, 2009

 

Good suggestions Tulsalady 27,ooops Tulsalady 26....

Mustn't confuse the Tulsaladies....they are all very lovely :o)

Yes, please ask Sleepy,,, and, as you say, could be some of my plants causing an allergy problem and preventing Bong from visiting... I wonder what Bong would say.....

...he is very witty and usually has an answer for everything.
He could probably provide his own list of exotic cosmetics I could buy .....

12 Nov, 2009

 

Thanks for the laugh TT
Compost flavoured lipstick ! Are you sure you want that delivery ? ...lol

But I'm going to write the name of your evergreen climber down ( Pileostegia ), so I can remember it. I need something like that to hide an ugly fence.

12 Nov, 2009

 

Hello Hywel....
My toadstool flavoured lipstick is almost used up, so I really do need Bong to turn up soon... very much want him to be here...

The Pileostegia Viburnoides... I have two of these evergreen climbers... the one which gets more sun has grown faster... I don't think they grow as fast as indicated by some garden plant suppliers....maybe plant a Trachelospermum Jasminoides next to it and the two evergreens can climb up together ? There are some close-up pictures of the lovely TJ leaves at the top of my recent blog called "I used to LIKE you, now I LOVE you" ... I hope this helps. :o)

12 Nov, 2009

 

Thanks TT. I remember the blog with Trachelospermum.
I'm glad us guys don't wear lipstic lol, but I hope Bong arives with your goodies soon :o)
lol

12 Nov, 2009

 

Perhaps Postman Peat has purloined your goodies...or if it is a Postman Pat-ricia
she maybe has taken a fancy to them?

12 Nov, 2009

 

Hywel - check out my plants (page 5?) where there are some photos of pileostegia in full flower

12 Nov, 2009

 

Hello Andrew.......
I'll be checking out those photos myself. Thank you.. :o)

12 Nov, 2009

 

Hi Alz and the GG's ~
Postman Peat and his black-and-white Rat....?
...there's a song about those two !

Postlady Patricia ...she MUST be put on the suspect list...
... but Bong did promise to deliver the parcel personally, and I'm hoping if he realises how important it is to me, he will appear eventually..

Knowing him, he'll keep us waiting a while, so he can read more on this blog....:o)

12 Nov, 2009

 

Thanks Andrew

12 Nov, 2009

 

That Bong!! Honestly! I'm waiting too! That compost flavoured lipstick is just irresistible! (To flies, unfortunately, but the colour's great!)
BONG!!! Where are you??? :~))))))))))))))))))))))

12 Nov, 2009

 

i still dont get who bong is? please put me out of my misery...........

12 Nov, 2009

 

Hi Seaburngirl....
Andrewr has a wonderful yellow book garden where the famous wooden bears live... BRUNO and BARNEY....
Their names also being with B... just like BONG...
I wonder if that is relevant ?
PS. I love the rose on your avatar picture.
Which variety is it please ?

12 Nov, 2009

 

Hi Madperth...
Have you noticed how the compost lipstick changes colour with age ...?
... in fact it breaks down into a wonderful dark black crumbly mixture which is very good for the garden. :o)

12 Nov, 2009

 

Yes, but doesnt look quite so good on the lips!! Lol!

12 Nov, 2009

 

Others might disagree....:o)

12 Nov, 2009

 

LMAO!!!!! Great blob, sorry, blog, by the way!!

12 Nov, 2009

 

The only Bong I know is that infernal "Bing Bong" that you get on BR trains!!!
Either that or I am just too long in the tooth to know about wooden bears TT !!

12 Nov, 2009

 

ah.... that's useful information Alz... Thank you...
...It seems Bong may be arriving by train...
Not sure the exact age of the bear duo BARNEY and BRUNO....
...maybe Andrew will tell us..... please....:o)

12 Nov, 2009

 

still non the wiser tt.
the rose is 'New Dawn' awarded the RHS AGM 1935/6.

12 Nov, 2009

 

Thanks Sbg... I tried to find the rose on your photos via your tags...
but no luck...

12 Nov, 2009

 

Now you have me scratching my head ....weren't Barney and Bruno a couple of TV puppets about 20 odd years ago? What have they to do with BONG??!!!
For favour sake..put us out of our misery TT
I want my tea - and can't give this up until I know!!!!

12 Nov, 2009

 

the original photo was from my brother's photo file, with his permission so i dont think i have a copy of it.

but what about bong?

please, pretty please put me out of my misery

12 Nov, 2009

 

Andrewr is the Barney and Bruno expert...
... maybe those who have visited his Yellow Book garden will know more... or perhaps that's just leading us down the garden path... to his wonderful newly-planted bit on the side ? :o)

12 Nov, 2009

 

Hi Sbg....
Sounds like your brother has some lovely flower photos... :o)

12 Nov, 2009

 

I've just dropped sleepy in the water butt,(well he wouldn't wake up) he swares on Dopeys life it wasn't him. Sorry.

12 Nov, 2009

 

Thanks Tulsalady26 for your noble efforts in helping us here....
....very glad you are on GoY...xxx

12 Nov, 2009

 

That Bong still not turned up TT ?? Tut, tut ! ;~))

12 Nov, 2009

 

I'm still hopeful... :o)

12 Nov, 2009

12 Nov, 2009

 

Hi Sandra...
I reckon you'll be delighted to see him.. and he'll hopefully bring those cosmetics... :o)

12 Nov, 2009

12 Nov, 2009

 

LMAO!! Brilliant, Alz!

12 Nov, 2009

 

It might be a bit early for him yet ..... ??

12 Nov, 2009

 

Maybe a practice run....?

12 Nov, 2009

 

Great song Alz...
I hear Bong's distant cousins are that "Road To "couple..

Bong Crosby and Bong Hope... :o)

12 Nov, 2009

 

LOL !!

12 Nov, 2009

 

Not sure if I can keep awake much after 9 pm....
but for Bong... I will try..

12 Nov, 2009

 

I'm sure Bong would understand after all the excitement & trauma you've been through!

12 Nov, 2009

 

I have come to the sad conclusion TT - that you are "on something" tonight!!!
Either that or I've lost the plot.....and at this rate ...it will be the will to live as well......who in the name of the wee man is BONG Hope? If I'm right - then Bob's your uncle...LOL

12 Nov, 2009

 

About time, Alz! Lol!

12 Nov, 2009

 

whatever Terra`s on i want some plez , make it a double :o))))

12 Nov, 2009

.... I pray it does the trick.... xxx

12 Nov, 2009

 

Lets hope so! Me too, & smudge says me 3!!

12 Nov, 2009

 

Sandra.... what I'm on is something called relief at having a bit less stress than usual.... if I could bottle it for you... I'd send you a truck full. xxx

12 Nov, 2009

 

This must indeed be a TT special...we are ALL agog to know (a) what you are on ...lol and (b) the answer to this puzzle before we beat a path to your door and play BONG on your bell!!

12 Nov, 2009

 

I hear extra support from Scotland on its way..:o)

12 Nov, 2009

 

If we all sing a song .... then Bong might come along !!! ;~)))

12 Nov, 2009

 

The Bong and winding road ?

12 Nov, 2009

 

LMAO !!! It's a Bong way to Tipperary ?

12 Nov, 2009

BIN BONG!

Mac

12 Nov, 2009

 

Good one Mac...
I was thinking of that movie King Bong... :o)

12 Nov, 2009

 

SCOTTISH Bong, Sue....!! How about Scottish support being tartan braces....they would go BONG if twanged...LOL

12 Nov, 2009

 

Lol. Don't forget Wallace and Gromit....

The BONG Trousers... :o)

12 Nov, 2009

12 Nov, 2009

 

AAAGH!! So I was barking up the BONG tree!!!

12 Nov, 2009

 

You are doing very well Sandra...
just keep helping us to find Bong and you won't regret it... I promise....xxx

12 Nov, 2009

 

It's the same old Bong, but with a different meaning since you've been gone ;~)))

12 Nov, 2009

 

Do you think if I get musical and play the BONGos it would help ?

12 Nov, 2009

 

Sue.... that is so appropriate....... well done :o))))))))))))))))))

12 Nov, 2009

 

is this just about words that rhyme with bong? or am i still being thick!

12 Nov, 2009

 

Every little helps!! I won't sleep tonight unless I get to know what is BONG with my brain,....it seems to have gone on strike.....BONG!!!!!!

12 Nov, 2009

 

Hi SBG ~ We are hoping that words that rhyme will help encourage Bong to appear..

have you see on GoYpedia Spring Blossom... your daughter is one of the top photos....! Yay ! :o)

12 Nov, 2009

 

News at Ten will be on soon

12 Nov, 2009

 

BONG

12 Nov, 2009

 

Well done, Mac.... If support from Scotland were the key to cracking this... we would be getting there.... :o)

12 Nov, 2009

 

A bit of Zeppelin......The Bong remains the same .... :~)

12 Nov, 2009

 

Mele kalikimaka is the thing to say
On a bright Hawaaian Christmas day....
that's the island greeting that we bring to you
From the land where palm trees sway......
Here we know that Christmas will be green and bright
The sun to shine by day and all the stars at night
Mele kalikimaka is Hawaai's way
To say 'Merry Christmas' to you!

C'mon, BonG, for goodness sakes!

;-)

12 Nov, 2009

 

Good stuff, Brenda...

Do you think he's gone to Hong Bong ?

or Bong Kong ???

12 Nov, 2009

 

I thought it was Rod Stewart that sang "It's the same old song" etc....no?
Isn't he Scottish - or half S and half English?

12 Nov, 2009

 

but i'm too tired to get my brain to work.

I noticed you have chosen a few of my piccies. i feel very honoured. my lovely pets too.

12 Nov, 2009

 

..a 'bong' is, of course - not that I'd know - a smoking accessory beloved of the post hippy generation.....

For what it's worth....

;-)

12 Nov, 2009

 

C'mon Bong ..... my Sunset Cowboy !!!

12 Nov, 2009

 

Alli know is my brain has LONG GONE BONG!!!

12 Nov, 2009

 

SBG.... I'm just so glad you are on this thread with us....

12 Nov, 2009

12 Nov, 2009

 

Nearly my bedtime.....

BONG THE BUILDER.... CAN I FIX IT ?????!!!!

12 Nov, 2009

 

We really hope you can !!!!!

12 Nov, 2009

12 Nov, 2009

 

BONG...it will soon be midnight....BONG!!!

12 Nov, 2009

 

And so say all of us, and so say all of us !!!!

12 Nov, 2009

 

Can't think what Bong the Builder (ahem!) has to do with cosmetics.....and garden gnomes....much less the Avon Lady.....as you will see I have been trying to re-cap and like I said before...have lost the plot!

12 Nov, 2009

 

Lovely blog Terratoonie, found this by acciedent, wonder why all your things never appear on my news yet I have you as a favourite.

12 Nov, 2009

12 Nov, 2009

 

Hi Morgana...
Nice to have you here :o)
This evening another member said that my blogs etc are not appearing on their news.... Hope it isn't happening to everyone...? Please let me know if so, and I'll contact management. !

12 Nov, 2009

 

Alz knows better than anyone I can't keep awake much longer...

12 Nov, 2009

12 Nov, 2009

 

Gotta go to bed!

Last thoughts:

Cosmetics = 'make up'

Lipstick = 'kiss'..............so........

Kiss and make up.......

I leave the Coming up smelling of roses bubble bath and the Evergreen 'grass roots' face pack to someone else!!!!!!

Or am I barking up the wrong evergreen, here?????

xxx

12 Nov, 2009

 

Got to go to bed now, can't find any matchsticks for my eyes......someone wake me if Bong is exposed.....wouldn't want to miss it!! LOL

12 Nov, 2009

 

Hi SBG..... Excellent...
and yes, that dress was a good investment wasn't it. :o)

Fabulous final comments from Brenda and Lily.....and well done everyone on your comments...

I've messaged management....

Good night... and let's hope we find BONG very soon.. xxx

Perhaps we DO need the GrassRoots facepack!
As for Rod Stewart, he claims to be Scottish, but..........??????????

12 Nov, 2009

13 Nov, 2009

 

Me neither Gee till computer went Bong and woke me up to say Bob had returned ..thats the Avon lady fired then Bob as dont have a door bell and she refuses to make all the right noises ...welcome back ..well done TT .

Personally I like to think it was threatening to come and visit you Bob that did it ..

13 Nov, 2009

 

Hey, hey.....It's Bob!! Yahoo!!! Bob's back....or should that be Bong's back?
Welcome home Bob.
No, I think it was my plea that we couldn't handle Ian without him, BB. :o)

13 Nov, 2009

 

4.15 a.m. and I'm in tears of happiness :o)

Anyone who is confused by all this... put Bobg into GoY google and see what it asks you. LOL...

Also had a message from Ajay who was nobly burning the midnight oil to fix some GoY glitches which meant you weren't receiving notifications of favourites' new blogs etc. I've just checked on Conker and he is fine. Going back to bed a happy bunny.... that's me... Conker and Truffle are happy doggies and Crocus is a happy budgie... See you all soon.. xxx

13 Nov, 2009

 

Well done Terra...brilliant blog...didn't have a clue what you were on about at first but after I did cotton on I couldn't get a word in edgeways anyway!!
It was lovely to see everyone rally round with love & support...& the occasional threat!!LOL.

See how hard we all work to bring a good guy back Bob?!! Good to see your face again! Welcome back.xxx

13 Nov, 2009

 

Morning ALL.....it's just 6am and this is quite the nicest wake-up call I could have...BOBG IS BACK !!!! Welcome Bob......we have all missed you and I did as I was bid and Goggled you and there you were..... BONG indeed. No wonder TT had us tied in flamin' knots....LOL
But - in all seriousness - it is good to have you back - where you belong, BONG!!
Thank you TT for leading us a merry dance last evening......even if you did cause me nightmares.....it was definitely worth it.:>>)))

13 Nov, 2009

 

Hi Mavis, Spritz and Tulsalady26...
Yes, great news isn't it !
Thanks for all joining in this blog...and helping it have such a happy conclusion. :o)

13 Nov, 2009

 

I read this last night TT but I still don't understand what it means?

13 Nov, 2009

 

Hi Ian....
Nice to see you on this blog...
It means we have Bong back...
... and, at last....
I have the compost flavoured lipstick. :o)

13 Nov, 2009

 

Ohhhh, I see ................ ;~)))))))

Thanks, Wagger....:o)

13 Nov, 2009

 

You did TT, you certainly did. Trouble is I STILL don't get it?

13 Nov, 2009

 

As a relative newby to GoY I hadn't a clue what this was about. Having read it all I'm thrilled to have found this community of warm-hearted people. Well done TT and welcome back BONG - even though I had not been aware you had gone away!

13 Nov, 2009

 

Hi again Digs...
What is it you didn't get?
Are you disappointed you didn't receive your order of evergreen grass-roots face pack with come-up-smelling-of-roses bubble bath ?
...or are you hoping Santa Claus will bring you the compost flavour lipstick ? ;o)

13 Nov, 2009

 

Hi Claire...
One of the wonderful things about GoY is how the comments all get out of sync.
Lol.
Yes, GoY is a wonderful global family of garden lovers, and I can tell by your photos and comments you are already fitting in very well.. Glad to have you on board. :o)

13 Nov, 2009

Lol. Holly... I've just been talking to you about the weather under Truffle's new photo... Wet here, but not as yet the downpours you have at the seaside..:o)

13 Nov, 2009

 

Hi Bloomer...
Once again, you'll notice the GoY way of comments getting out of sync. Can make for funny reading sometimes, like that old fashioned game of Consequences. Lol.
I notice you joined GoY on Hallowe'en Night... that was very brave of you, wasn't it ?! Yes, I reckon you'll fit in well on GoY and I'll look forward to chatting with you over coming months.xxx

13 Nov, 2009

 

I think Bongs bin and gone on Strike!

13 Nov, 2009

 

Lol. :o)

13 Nov, 2009

 

So glad I didn't read this "live". Would never have got 2 work!

Very well done, Tt!!!!! And Bob, too, of course!!!! :-D

13 Nov, 2009

 

Thanks.. David...
I knew you would understand. xxx
... but don't you mean Bong ?

13 Nov, 2009

 

Of course, Tt! Glad that the sound of the bongos reached darkest Lancashire. Might have been forced to add some deafening piped music! :-))

13 Nov, 2009

 

Oh no, David...!...not in the kilt again ???
..or are we back to Wallace and Gromit and the Bong Trousers ? ;o)

13 Nov, 2009

 

Well TT I can only say I`m glad the parcel went missing otherwise we would not have seen those lovely plants, and had a laugh at the same time at some of the zanny answers.

13 Nov, 2009

 

Thanks, Stroller...
I'm pleased you like the photos of the plants and my dogs..
I had to get special permission from the actors' union "Equity" for Conker and Truffle to act in the story... Lol.

13 Nov, 2009

 

So, he's back - Bong's your uncle and Fanny's your aunt...

13 Nov, 2009

 

Three cheers for Bong all together now.
Hip pip hooray Hip pip hooray hip pip hooray.

13 Nov, 2009

 

Hi Tulaslady and Bamboo...
Yes, we're all cheering here.....
King Bong is back :o)

13 Nov, 2009

 

Hi,Terratoonie.Nice to meet you.I hadn't noticed the Halloween date.Come to think of it,I could do with one of your cosmetic packs,so I can take the mask of now its over !! Have used the broom to sweep the leaves up.Now, what shall I do with the cauldron ? Before I get lots of suggestions,I will use it as another planter.LOL. :o)))

13 Nov, 2009

 

Lol. Bloomer... good idea...
Another member joined on April 1st and didn't realise till some time later.... we've had a joke about that... she didn't mind.. Lol.
I reckon I shall be early to bed this evening, maybe after using that come-up-smelling-of-roses bubble bath...Lol.

13 Nov, 2009

 

You have a nice, relaxing, fragrant soak, TT, and a good old snooze...you deserve it!
Lotsa love,

13 Nov, 2009

 

LMAO!! I've decided I much prefer the elderberry lipstick myself, Terra, but to each his own!!
Welcome to GoY , Bloomer! Do you know what you've let yourself in for??
:~))

13 Nov, 2009

WELCOME BACK BONG xxxx and thank you TT for making all things possible xxxx
PS. "Believe in the Magic" :))

PPS. When I was a student, I can remember what "bongs" were used for (shock...horror...please don't let my kids read this!!! ;)

13 Nov, 2009

 

That was the dawning of the age of Aquarius, age of Aquarius ...... !! LOL ;~)))

13 Nov, 2009

 

For blowing bubbles!!!!!!!!!

13 Nov, 2009

13 Nov, 2009

 

But if it doesn't work.....how come you're here ??? You'll have to explain in words of one syllabul, you know me and teccy stuff Bob !! lol ;~))

14 Nov, 2009

 

Doh! Just sussed what you guys are on about...bit slow today! Got the wind up!

14 Nov, 2009

 

'Doh', indeed, Fluff! I told Tt - I still don't 'get' it??????

14 Nov, 2009

 

Just catching up on all this morning's comments....
Unfortunately Conker has been reacting badly to his final dose of chemo, so it has been a stressful morning of trying to get the right medication from the vet... now achieved. :o)

Ding dong, Crazydi... Yes, I'm so pleased Bob is back on Goy !
Thanks for understanding the weird and wonderful intentions of the blog..xxx

and, Bob....yes, please explain yourself to Sue... she is waiting....
patiently...... Lol.x

Hi there Fluff.....
Glad you sussed it all... and pleased to see you here. xxx

14 Nov, 2009

 

Hi Spritz....
I've answered you about that on Conker's blog..Lol.

Conker's blog and Bong's blog are overlapping a bit...
...he he he... :o)

14 Nov, 2009

 

sorry Terra but i still dont understand what its all about, maybe im a bit stupid ;o))) x

14 Nov, 2009

 

Hi Sandra...
No you are NOT stupid...
My intention was that initially only one person ....Darling Bobg ....would understand it.....

P.S. Please send me another comment and you'll make my inbox reach 10,000 Yay ! :o) xxx

14 Nov, 2009

 

oh glad im not stupid and it got bob back, so thats good enough Terra, well done x

14 Nov, 2009

 

You and me both, Sanbaz - I understand that Bong means Bobg, who left the site and has now returned. What I don't understand is the bong reference - the only bongs I know about are often used by the "pharmaceutically challenged" shall we say, so I'm not sure what the connection is, really

14 Nov, 2009

 

Do a GoY google.

14 Nov, 2009

 

If you mean google Bong, that just takes you to this blog, Louise

14 Nov, 2009

 

i googled bobg and there are lots of bobg`s and differant subjects, is that what its about ;o( lol, im loosing it im sure heheh

14 Nov, 2009

 

Hopeless, isn't it, Sanbaz! When I first saw this blog, it did cross my mind that maybe Terratoonie had been at the Colombian marching powder...

14 Nov, 2009

 

put the word Bobg in GoYgoogle... top right....

press Search...
and you will be asked "Did you mean ..... ?"

14 Nov, 2009

 

What the hell is that all about?! did you mean bong, for goodness' sake. Mind you, I never use predictive text on my mobile - never forgotten it putting in the word "nun" when I wanted "mum". I mean for heaven's sake, how many times in your life are you likely to want to use the word "nun"?

14 Nov, 2009

 

.....or 'bong'?

14 Nov, 2009

 

Well in my case, Lily, I've probably used that word a lot more often than I've used nun (in the past, I hasten to add) but I take your point. ridiculous isn't it;-))

14 Nov, 2009

 

Yes TT, i see it there.

When you do a GoY google and type in bobg, at the very top of the page in blue writing i think, it says "did you mean bong?"

THIS is TTs play on words :-)))

14 Nov, 2009

 

Software is funny though - some years ago, I remember mistyping "jealous" - the spellchecker asked me if I meant Jesus....

14 Nov, 2009

 

GoY friends are very welcome to summarise this blog in their own words and give their own explanations.....
....that might help me understand it.... :o)

14 Nov, 2009

 

Bamboo, talk about dumbing down :-(

14 Nov, 2009

 

Is everyone happily sorted now ? hope so.

14 Nov, 2009

 

Tulsalady26... you've helped make this blog very special...
thank you. xxx

14 Nov, 2009

 

Thanks TT I enjoyed every minute . I think it does you good to go a bit crazy now and then.
Love to you and your babies xxxx
just realised does this make 200 ????? If so well done to you.

14 Nov, 2009

 

Correct, Tulsalady... 200 !
... and, yes, good to have a grin now and then...
love & hugs to you and yours. xxx

14 Nov, 2009

 

Well, hello Terra ! ;~)))))))))))

14 Nov, 2009

 

Hi Sue....
I'm really looking forward to your summary and explanation of this blog..;o)

14 Nov, 2009

 

Moi Terra ?????? ;~))) xx

14 Nov, 2009

 

Hope that that laugh didn't wake Conker up ?? xx

14 Nov, 2009

 

Conker has taken his head out of the wellie and is awaiting your blog summary.... didn't you do precis at school ??? Lol.xxx

14 Nov, 2009

 

Absolutely our kid !! Also did Latin ..... only for two years though ....!!!!!! ;~)))

14 Nov, 2009

 

Alas, I studied French and German instead...
no wonder we have trouble communicating.... lol..
Next time I write a Bong blog I'll provide a Latin translation.. ;o)

14 Nov, 2009

 

You are SO kind TT !! I didn't do German, but French ....... Voila !! Didn't pass the 'O' level though !! ;~(( Was told afterwards that I'd passed the oral but not the written. Hey ho ;~))

14 Nov, 2009

 

Yes, Marie... HOTTIE...
Lol. Sue... tell her she is on the wrong blog. :o)

14 Nov, 2009

 

Terra! LMAO!! I havent mentioned the hottie on THIS blog!!

14 Nov, 2009

 

Just looked back bab. Think it's you ....... tee hee hee !! ;~)))

14 Nov, 2009

14 Nov, 2009

 

So what's this about a hottie, then (or shouldn't I ask)?

14 Nov, 2009

 

We're waiting with bated breath to find out Bamboo !! lol

14 Nov, 2009

14 Nov, 2009

14 Nov, 2009

14 Nov, 2009

 

LMAO! You wicked woman! Leading us on a wild goose chase like that!
:~}}}}}}}}}

14 Nov, 2009

 

Just came straight over !! Methinks perhaps that the Carlsberg (probably !) might have something to do with the reason for the Brummy thickness today ! Mr. Hottie Blobby ????? ;~))))

14 Nov, 2009

 

Dunno about the hottie, will need to wait for that I suppose, but Mary? Pack it in!!

14 Nov, 2009

 

I think the penny is dropping !!!!!!! LMAO !!! TT ....... you little b****r !! xxx

14 Nov, 2009

 

well i finally got the bong bit with help though lol, but not the cosmetics bit, or is that not relavent heheh, i didnt get bong because i have yahoo search so bong didnt come up :o))

14 Nov, 2009

 

San The cosmetics bit comes from me, I said that ......erm .... hehe I cannot think what I said now 'coz I've had a sleep since, but I did make reference to Avon ... you know "Bing BONG Avon calling" and Terra took up on that.
Sue just to clarify things a little, when building a website it is made up of lots of code and I was trying to put a link in that, when clicked, would open the GoY home page but I could'nt get it to work at first, but I have now Yyyay!!!

14 Nov, 2009

 

Thats as clear as mud, Bong!

14 Nov, 2009

 

'Tis to me too Marie hehehe

15 Nov, 2009

 

Wouldn't it be funny if a new member joined using the name Bong...Lol.

15 Nov, 2009

 

No! Talk about confusion ... we do have an Alibongo, I think...

15 Nov, 2009

 

You are right, Bamboo... Alibongo is a member...
... with no photos yet, but three blogs...
....no favourite photos yet....
and just one favourite member............................:o)

15 Nov, 2009

 

And I'm guessing that must be you, TT... or you're running a detective agency;-))

15 Nov, 2009

 

Yes, Bamboo...

15 Nov, 2009

We have the Baby Biong hair restorer at our special winter price.
That's winter price, not Katie price... :o)

17 Nov, 2009

 

Why Oh Why,did I start it off again by placing my order.! will I get any commission on all the sales you are getting? :o))).You will have to be competitive in this retail market.I suggest a B.O.G.O.F.F. if you will pardon the expression.you could throw in some plastic toothpicks free if commission not forthcoming,but I will keep my receipt just in case they have been used for something silly,like gardening.Ugh,horrible thought.:o(((
By the way,can you tell I used to work in a supermarket?

17 Nov, 2009

 

Hi Bloomer...
great to have you to advise us....with your years of supermarket sales experience. :o)
Yes, your commission will be paid in the dual purpose white plastic plant labels/toothpicks.. but one get 1,000 free...:o)

17 Nov, 2009

 

Wonderful! About the Hair restorer.You must be physic (can't spell it ),as I am just going to my Sister in laws shop to have my haircut,so will see if she wants to place a bulk order!!!

17 Nov, 2009

 

Lol.....then I warn you not to look at the banana photos on my latest blog. Lol.

17 Nov, 2009

 

Anyone want some Glyphosate hair remover? I don't need it. Mine's dying back naturally!

17 Nov, 2009

 

Lol. Ponty...
Surely there's a garden related cosmetic we could order to make your Christmas better.... something to soothe your feet ?

17 Nov, 2009

 

Don't think I need anything for my feet. There's a whisper my wife's getting me a buggy!

17 Nov, 2009

 

Maybe some tea bags ? Over on my new blog we're discussing the benefits of coffee grounds, used tea bags and banana skins... maybe you've used some of those on your orchard/jungle and can add your experiences over there please ?

17 Nov, 2009

 

I'll go there TT. In the meantime, I am NOT going to put teabags on my feet - so there. Anyway, who's been talking about my feet?? :>))

17 Nov, 2009

 

Lol. Ponty...
I think I'll have to put in an order for you...
the scratch-n-smile holly-leaf foot massager...:o)

17 Nov, 2009

 

Could I have vanilla & elderflower fizzy bath foam as well please?

18 Nov, 2009

 

Is it the BONG with luminous nose? Or has someone already suggested that? I am always the cows tail! Now there a suggestion. The cows tail backbrush for reaching into those far flung places that ordinary backbrushes don't reach. Sorry bit slow, but GJ in hospital having his waterworks inspected.

21 Nov, 2009

 

Hi Dorjac...good suggestion...
not yet mentioned by anyone else !
.... Edward Lear poetry ~
here's one verse...
Slowly it wanders,--pauses,--creeps,--
Anon it sparkles,--flashes and leaps;
And ever as onward it gleaming goes
A light on the Bong-tree stems it throws.
And those who watch at that midnight hour
From Hall or Terrace, or lofty Tower,
Cry, as the wild light passes along,--
'The Dong!--the Dong!
'The wandering Dong through the forest goes!
'The Dong! the Dong!
'The Dong with a luminous Nose!'

Best wishes to GJ. x

28 Nov, 2009

 

Of course it is Di ! lol ;~))

28 Nov, 2009

 

Oh, Di....That's a good one.... going to prove VERY popular with our regular customers... I reckon I better put in a bulk order for those special anti-wrinkle, air-brushing mirrors....

If the bike's not done, he can use his scooter!

A definite must for the mirror for me too Terra ! :~)

29 Nov, 2009

 

I'm making a note of these extra orders...
...the special mirrors look like being our very best seller...
could be a profit-making cottage industry either for Crazydi .....or for Ian...made from all the spare parts off his Kawasaki. :o)

29 Nov, 2009

 

I don't really need one as I'm very yoofful but it would make a good prezzie for a 'friend'.

29 Nov, 2009

 

Ah, yoofful Wagger...
...seems you need a large dose of our mint-flavour, porky-pie-shaped, "Tell The Trooff" tablets...

Shall I put your name down for the economy size box ?

29 Nov, 2009

I also need (for my NON yoofful eye-bags & dark circles) some witch-hazel & cucumber eye gel, please!!

29 Nov, 2009

29 Nov, 2009

 

LOL Terra :~)))

29 Nov, 2009

 

Sue! Not right now its not!! X~{{{
Terra! Definitely the wicked witch hazel, please, but not of the West, I'm an East of Scotland girl (sic) lol!

29 Nov, 2009

 

Marie...

and Di...are there any members on GoY under 53 ? ;o)

Don't worry...
nothing on the garden cosmetics list is priced higher than 49p....

Sadly, we have only one spider's leg eye lash left....
...do you mind wearing just the one..? ..could start a new fashion...Lol.

and.... would someone please explain how, at the weekend, according to my GoY profile, my place of residence changed mysteriously to AVON ?
Do you think Peter and Ajay are having a joke....
....ding dong bong...Avon calling..? :o)

30 Nov, 2009

 

A drop of hair-restorer, TT? Thanks for the thought - but a TOUPEE?? Thankfully I would have no use for it other than to line a nest in my Laurel hedge. Some people can be sooo cruel! :>)

30 Nov, 2009

 

We'll take your word for it Ponty .... honest !! ;~))

30 Nov, 2009

 

Yeah! Flying pigs over Brum today?

30 Nov, 2009

 

Oink oink !! LOL ;~))

30 Nov, 2009

 

Well it couldn't have been any of us, so I think it must've been A&P!
Or maybe Crocus has given your password to the FPP again!!

30 Nov, 2009

 

Lol :)) Avon calling TT....come in TT....we are calling you....:))))
Now then, about those spiders' legs eyelashes.....
Do you think I'm crazy????? How can I only wear one lash when I've got two eyes??? Must I cut it in half with a pair of secateurs??? I'll never get a kiss under the mistletoe unless I can flutter those spiders legs....sob, sob., boo hoo...;)

30 Nov, 2009

 

If she only wears one set, she'll look like something from a Clockwork Orange! Cant have that!! You'll have to go to Lily's shed & get her spiders, Terra!

30 Nov, 2009

2 Dec, 2009

 

I would vote for most seductive eyelash but there's no point for me - past it.
Most fluttery eyelash is no good 'cos every time I try it I get asked if I have something in my eye.
Most architectural eyelash is striking but would clash with my garden.

3 Dec, 2009

 

Ponty... Armour or disguise ? :o)

3 Dec, 2009

 

Have just returned and I am dying to find out what is waterproof Sue....LOL
Keep the party clean, old girl!!!

3 Dec, 2009

 

Forget the armour TT, I think his best option is a good pair of running shoes!! :o))

3 Dec, 2009

 

If Bong were given a good pair of wellies, he could break the 100 metres sprint record in the Wellie Olympics :o)

3 Dec, 2009

 

Ponty !!!!! Are you saying that Bong would run away from one date with me ???? (Or two dates with Terra ?)

Alz.....psst ... the way that this could turn out, I think you can guess what's waterproof !! LOL ;~)))

3 Dec, 2009

 

As I see it he's threatened with SIX - and he appears to have gone into hiding! Or a monastery!

3 Dec, 2009

 

At least, once our garden cosmetics are delivered, we will all look wonderful... and have an alluring aroma ;o)

3 Dec, 2009

 

Oh no Ponty ! Our Bong is a bit of a 'night owl' ! When he sees what is in store for him, he will be over the moon !! Don't you think Terra ???

3 Dec, 2009

 

Don't ask me about being over the moon... ask Moongrower...
...full moon was yesterday...:o)

3 Dec, 2009

 

.......and heading for Mars.
I seem to recall that someone recently said "in your dreams."

3 Dec, 2009

 

LMAO !!

3 Dec, 2009

 

A Mars a day helps you work, rest...... and play :o)

3 Dec, 2009

 

I remember that !! LOL ;~))

3 Dec, 2009

 

So do I ...they are very moreish.....but they also put the weight on....my old dog Honey was given one every morning by the newsagent for the first EIGHT YEARS of her life apparently.
Her original owner didn't know any better obviously and let him do it..:<<((
Not much wonder she was 55 kilos when she was rescued!! Now down to 29-30 ..thank goodness!!

3 Dec, 2009

 

Well done on keeping Honey at a better weight...
Chocolate with its theobromine can be lethal for dogs...:o(

3 Dec, 2009

 

With it's WHAT ???
When I had my boys, the absolute was Cadbury's Buttons !! Not often !! Honest !

But when I threw them all over the floor.............OH ..... happy days !!! lol

3 Dec, 2009

 

Google Wikipedia... theobromine toxicity...

Theobromine is especially toxic to horses, dogs, parrots, voles, and cats because they are unable to metabolize the chemical effectively. ...

3 Dec, 2009

 

Soz Terra, but they both lived 'til 15. xxxxx

3 Dec, 2009

 

The MILK buttons are far less toxic actually Sue - so you probably got away with it - same as everybody else did for years...until the Theobromine - particularly in dark/black chocolate was identified as lethal. Like my recent escapade with Di and the 2lb tin of Roses chocs that she devoured in one sitting while I was out...LOL Not enough chocolate in that lot obviously to bother her......which says a lot for Roses chocs..ha ha !!

3 Dec, 2009

 

I'm not having a 'go' Terra or Alz.
The thing that I'm remembering is being down on the floor with my boys to see who could get them first !! LOL :~)))))))))))))))
