The Friday Question Set — 28-8-2015

Right, sorry about this … 

But I’ve bee rather … um … lax, haven’t I … ?

And only now realised I’ve missed the past couple of weeks worth of Friday Question Sets … !


The Daily Teaser — 28-8-2015

Hmmm … I could’ve sworn I had my TV’s Record facility set up … !

Not that I’m complaining too much: it’s actually nice to have one that works.

And … ?   If things were seriously needed, I’ve got the back-up DVD recorder available.

It’s just mildly annoying.

And only convinces me I possibly need an extra bit of kit: in order to make sure I’ve got something … 

Hmmm … 

The Shepard’s Crown — much as I want a copy — can wait until next week, I think.

Here’s hoping …

The Daily Teaser — 27-8-2015: The Rainbow Bridge

For me, payday is tomorrow.   And there’s a few things I want to buy.

I have my eyes on a little set-top box that I can ad to my TV: to let me watch high definition TV channels.

There’s a ton of other things, too.

There’s something else, as well: as you can possibly guess.

I’m a long term fan of the late Sir Terry Pratchett: having read his work since the mid-1980s, when I first came across The Colour of Magic.

As you can imagine, his diagnosis with Alzheimer’s Disease was something I found upsetting: especially as it a condition my grandmother suffered with.

His death was equally upsetting.

I’m also VERY aware of something else.

Last night saw the UK release of his last book: The Shepard’s Crown.

Something I’m both looking forward to — it’s a Discworld novel, after all — and dreading ordering.

And reading.

Sir Terry, himself, said — in Going Postal — that someone only died when his name stopped being spoken.

I’m very aware there are moves afoot to make sure of that.

But there’s a reason I’m dreading buying The Shepard’s Crown.

It means I know for certain that an old friend has died … … …

The Brentwood Gazette’s Weekly Teaser — 26-8-2015: Steamboat Willie

Right … I’m off to work in a minute.

So, I’m feeling a little … rushed, right now!

After all, I STILL have to make a Sandwich, for when I get there!

Oy VEH … !


The Daily Teaser — 26-8-2015

Right … 

I’m officially up.

Up … about … and getting in the mood to go to work.

Which I can’t complain about, too much.

After all, it’s a daytime shift: which means I can get home in time for dinner.

And possibly some entertaining TV.

And a bun.

You can tell I’ve nothing serious planned, can’t you … ?

Well, beyond the bun …
