The end is nigh!

by NobblySan

You can always tell when a TV comedy show is dying.

It’s when the writers have wrung every last drop of originality out of the bloody thing, and are loathe to admit that they’re clueless about what to write next, yet are faced with the problem that the producer has just signed up for a further 13 episode series.

This usually applies to anything that has run to more than three series.

What normally happens then is that they start finding lame excuses to have ‘flashbacks’ to earlier episodes to fill up airtime as they can’t be arsed to write anything original.

Hold that thought folks, because I’ve just been trawling through our archives with due trepidation, in search of inspiration, only to end up covered in perspiration and in need of medication.

I was shocked and saddened by some of the stuff that I found.

Those BBC webpage layout people are at it again

Don’t try telling me that this happened by a mere coincidence.

“I got sole, but I’m not a . . . “

by NobblySan

Brandon Flowers tries his hand – or some other part of his anatomy – at sea fishing.

I bet Linda Lovelace could have reeled in a bigger catch, though.

“What’s he waffling on about now?” I hear you ask.

Well . . .

Please ignore my previous post

This one may be even more bizarre.

I give up

by NobblySan

Now I’ve seen it all.

I can never take on board anything more bizarre than this.

A good day for a walk

by NobblySan

This afternoon, I took our spaniel for a walk in the hills near home.

Hopefully, in a few months, our other dog will have recovered enough from the operation to hold her knee together (she’s got a knackered cruciate ligament) to rejoin us on our walks.

Here’s some pics.

I’m not from London, so shouldn’t really care, but . . .

by NobblySan

. . . this is the best bit of news that I’ve heard for a while.

When we have people sleeping rough on our streets and relying on food banks, I find the idea of a vanity project of this magnitude Рthat would benefit only a handful of people in one city in  one corner of the country Рto be little short of obscene.

Hats off to Sadiq Khan for standing up for what is right and good, and Piss off to his predecessor for being a clueless privileged twat of the highest order.

Cue the little baldy-headed bloke and the sax

by NobblySan

I was planning a walk with some friends this morning, and found this wonderful name for a hill on the route.

I thought he was dead.

Study the map to see what I’m on about.
