The Daily Teaser — 19-4-2014: Don’t Tall Me Shirley … !

Ah— HA!

It’s a TRAIN … !

OK, OK … It’s Thomas the Tank Engine … !

And I think we can say my nephew, Jude, had a thoroughly good time at the East Anglia Rail Museum, yesterday.

He certainly enjoy the actual train trip: and very insistent on having another go.

Despite the fact trains done up as Percy and Daisy were there.

I do know this, though: he certainly enjoyed the Punch and Judy show, there.

Which was also the first one his uncle had seen: child abuse, wife-beating, cruelty to crocodiles, police brutality, assaulting a police officer and strings of sausages … ?

Something for everyone, in other words …

The Daily Teaser — 18-4-2014: Never A Crossword … !

Ooops … !

It’s Good Friday … !

And once again, I’ve near enough missed the fact … !

Still … I can always do a Good Friday Teaser, next year … !

THIS year, on the other hand … ?

THIS year, I’m helping my kid sister, Ruth: by taking my nephew, Jude, to see Thomas the Tank Engine.

SHOULD be fun … !

I’ll try and post some photos, later.

Between now and then, though … ?   Let’s get a move on … !

The Daily Teaser — 17-4-2014: Little Green Men


It’s official.

My World Book Night books are in!

Just in case you DIDN’T know, World Book Night has been held on 23rd April, ever since 2011: and I’ve volunteered to hand out a good read, ever since.

The book I’m handing out this year … ?

Is Armistead Maupin’s Tales Of The City: which will possibly raise an eyebrow or, around here, given Brentwood is — basically — very conservative!

Hmmm … 

Let’s on, shall we?   I’ll let you know how that goes, on the day …

The Brentwood Gazette’s Weekly Teaser — 16-4-2014

Ah HA!

That’s my World Book Night books delivered, then … !

Just so you know, I’ve been volunteering for that for about three years, now: quietly handing out multiple copies of whatever good read’s on the World Book Night list since 2011.

The one I’m handing out, this year … ?

Armistead Maupin’s Tales Of The City*.

Hell, let’s raise some eyebrows … !


The Daily Teaser — 16-4-2014: The Last Battle

Whoah … !

I have to admit, I’m in a mild rush, this morning: I’ve got an appointment with my employment adviser, today.

At 9·20.

AND I’ve got to pick up some medication, as well.

All that … ?

And I think I need both a loaf: but definitely need to pick up — and post for — this week’s Gazette.

I’d better get a move on, hadn’t I … ?
