  1. Oh my what a tiny photo, or is it my Mac being silly? It was proper size in the email but like a postage stamp now I’m online! Anyway, sorry, that’s neither here nor there is it, the photo is very funny, and, yes, ‘Never Mind’ or ‘Whatever’ would be a good new name for it. Let’s hope the water was warm for them to swim to shore 🙂

    • I like “Whatever” as an alternative.

      As for the size of the picture, hmm, I rushed over to the website to look online for any deficiency and happily its as big as the one in the email, though of course they do say size doesn’t matter.

      Hope you are enjoying your hot summer days under the cooling jacket which must be getting quite smelly by now with so much sun on your back.

  2. Now that the screen has refreshed the picture is normal size, how peculiar! Maybe it’s the heat!

    • Oh how I wish I had read this comment first har ha.

    • I was just off to check all the blogs, review the software, configure the that’s it’s, reassemble the thingy’s and generally investigate the problem.

      :Author’s Note:
      Please be aware sometimes this cat has difficulty describing his actions with any remotely resembling the truth!

      • Obviously caught you at a quiet moment! My cooling jacket goes through frequent 15 minute wash cycles, light grey is a very silly colour – shows up every last mud speck from my woogles.

      • A quiet moment! Not really. I just wanted sort out the picture size problem immediately… sorry can’t keep a straight face any longer.

        Ooh a 15 minute wash cycle that sounds impressive. I’ll check to see if my machine has something similar. I know it has a 30 degree program I found that out after one or two little washing disasters with my 4 year old’s Gap clothes.

        It is a bit silly to make clothes for a four year old that can’t be washed at a temperature that copes with the stains that smalls can inflict upon them isn’t it.

        Yes grey is a silly colour. Actually on the subject of grey, I have a dozen or so tshirts that are um grey. I use them almost exclusively although ‘others’ think that I should brighten up my wardrobe and buy rainbows full of coloured tshirts.

        Don’t they know that when you have, oh how to describe it, oh yes a ‘fuller figure’ it’s better to have a XXL tshirt in a colour that doesn’t attract too much attention.

        As for a the aforementioned quiet moment I started at 5.00 am as usual this morning and feel I have been funny enough for the day.

        I also have a meeting this pm so the writing day is going to end then. Sigh.

        Actually the new script is a riot, it even makes me laugh after reading it dozens of times. Which is a relief I can tell you. It’s hard being funny all the time.

      • It is indeed impressive, mum uses it all the time to freshen things up… bath mats, towels used once by guests… she wishes she could pop me in sometimes. There’s also a rinse/spin cycle which is 22 minutes long. Oops, we don’t mention washing disasters, it has been known for an entire shirt wash to be turned pink… and more recently she turned one load blue because she forgot she’d chucked in a blue top for a 15 minute wash on its own and didn’t notice it lurking at the bottom of the drum. Oops.
        I think you could probably get away with a nice pale blue or even pink, dad wears those and he has a well rounded tummy. Not even grey would make it disappear so just go with the flow… no one really notices anyway once you are of a certain age. Perhaps when your 4 year old is older you will have to be more restrained so as not to cause embarrassment.
        So laughing at your own writing isn’t a bit like tickling yourself? It’s not often that you find proper LOL writing, you know, the embarrassing kind when you are on public transport and let out a very loud chortle. Keep up the good work.

      • That machine does sound good. Ours you can turn on when you are on holiday if the fancy takes you by wifi, but the clothes would probably be pretty smelly by the time you return.

        It also has all sorts of functions that you read about when choosing a washing machine and then don’t use which is the way of the world.

        Actually it’s mainly my wonderful wife who ventures into the unknown territory of exotic washine machine use. I miss the ones with dials and separate spin dryers.

        I hope my writing embarresses a lot of people not only on buses, I know from some correspondence from the Bible Belt in the states that when religious people read my books they get offended.

        I consider that a really excellent result har ha.

        Re the new script I read bits of it to Lena, my wonderful wife and she laughed. In fact the bit I am thinking about actually happened to me when I was about 20 and I told Lena the story which I had already decided to use and the first thing she said was “that has to go in the script.”

        That’s was rewarding.

        Have a great evening.

      • Ah, I bet you even remember the old wash boards like my granny used to have. Hmmm I bet you could always do the wifi thing to switch it on while you’re just out shopping so it would be ready when you got back… we just put ours on a delay to finish when we get back from my walk.
        We are hoping for a cool evening, it’s been too hot for too long now. My next appointment with my stylist isn’t for 20 days… that’s a long time to be hairy.

      • Yes that’s what we do, the WiFi thing while out sometimes.

        Oh I checked our washing machine has a 15 minute cycle too. Don’t mean to be braggy or anything but it is a very clever machine.

        Of course I didn’t know about that function, just the one I always use the 59 minute one st 40.

        So you live and learn. 🙂

        As for wash boards, I do vaguely recall them, also roller hand and electric. My washing machine then was my glorious Mum, with muscles the size of a weightlifter who could wring blankets dry.

        Heigh ho happy days the fifties.
