.............. light on the cherry tree - the one the birds always get to before we do!!!!!
I have been an extremely bad blip-buddy these past few weeks - I'm falling down on comments, thank yous, BB Hearts and HMs - basically just terrible ...... I'm sorry, very sorry!
Am sure all will revert to my normal slightly-better self by mid-July when, hopefully, the kitchen will be fully finished - flooring and doors to complete the refit! Saturday, Stef comes to put right the niggles and will hopefully be bringing a new sink too - one that's not bent! (I am uploading this on Friday, for Wednesday, so my tenses may be a lil muddled!)
Smile for the Day:
A nun, badly needing to use the restroom, walked into a local Hooters.
The place was hopping with music and loud conversation and every once in a while the lights would turn off.
Each time the lights would go out, the place would erupt into cheers.
However, when the revelers saw the nun, the room went dead silent.
She walked up to the bartender, and asked, "May I please use the restroom?
The bartender replied, “OK, but I should warn you that there is a statue of a naked man in there wearing only a fig leaf.”
“Well, in that case, I’ll just look the other way,” said the nun.
So the bartender showed the nun to the back of the restaurant.
After a few minutes, she came back out, and the whole place stopped just long enough to give the nun a loud round of applause.
She went to the bartender and said, “Sir, I don’t understand. "Why did they applaud for me just because I went to the restroom?”
“Well, now they know you’re one of us,” said the bartender, “Would you like a drink?”
“No thank you, but, I still don’t understand,” said the puzzled nun.
"You see,” laughed the bartender, "every time someone lifts the fig leaf on that statue, the lights go out.
Now, how about that drink?"

Now, this joke borders on some truth - a pub called The Greyhound, in Killinghall near Harrogate, Yorkshire, had a similar statue - except when you lifted the fig leaf it rang a bell in the bar!!!!
