Mating Season (a.k.a. Sexy Panda)

Not only funny but educational.

Ric was Chaz's younger brother, he also lived in the flat in City Road.
We sat one day at barstools during a lunch time session.

Tickers- "It says here in the paper, that in Britain today, there are two eligable men to every eligable woman. It's in the Sun so it must be true. "

Ric - "No wonder we're have trouble pulling!"

Tickers- " That means there's only half a woman to every man."

Ric - " In that case, I don't mind having the top half."

Tickers- "You don't mind having the top half?"

Ric - "No, I don't mind, just as long as she's wearing black stockings and suspenders."

I stare at him uncomprehending for a moment then explode with laughter.


I shared a flat with Chaz in City Road Cardiff. He also worked with me in the National Museum of Wales. He was a technician in the Art Department.
One day back in the early '70's, Chaz was given the task of painting the pedestals on which the marble busts were placed in the foyer. All went well until the lunch time visit to the pub sapped him of strength and judgment. As he lifted a bust, it overwhelmed him and he fumbled it to the floor, where it's nose dropped off. He picked it up, face into his stomach and took it down stairs to the workshop, where a new nose was furtively fashioned in plaster of Paris. No one ever noticed.

Do you believe in fairies?

A relative of mine used to enjoy a drink. She often lost all memory of the later half of the evening.
Waking, after entertaining the previous night, she would dread the thought of having to clear the consequent mess. Very often she would stumble about the house to find all dishes washed and put away, furniture straightend and the Hoover recently deployed.
She attributed this phenomenon to the 'Booze fairies'.

Painful Clips Collection

Just file this under the heading of 'OUCH!'

They knew a thing or two back in the 1950's.

MAdonna Hung Up On Crack

Just to keep you amused whilst I take a break from blogging. It's so easy just to pinch something from U Tube and post. So that's what I'm going to do on a regular basis until I find time to write a couple of posts that are churning around in my drug damaged brain.
