Just been for a quick trot (amble) along the beach before the temperature gets too much. It is always a great feeling to leave the first footprints in the sand. MrA was rude to a seagull, a curious fox looked on as we watched a black backed gull consume a slippery silver fish. Feather, fur & fin.

MrA was rude to a seagull

What, you mean "Fuck off, seagull, you ugly git!"?

He said 'Look at that fat spotty thing over there!'. Which was uncalled for, especially as it was a juvenile greater black backed gull and really couldn't help it.

Paprika butter pork chops, pea studded mashed potatoes and roasted carrots and Brussel sprouts.

The sapling and I have been to The Mithraeum, which was very cool. Now in a pub with a delicious grapefruit Radler. I was surprised to find a pub open as I have spent the whole day convinced it’s sunday. Confused now.

Awkward.

I have been to Blackpool. Then came back to Fleetwood. Now I am going back to Blackpool.

That means you drove past my soon to be house and could have waved to my Mum and Dad.

People are all very friendly in the North. They wouldn't have thought it strange.

They might have invited you in for a bath of coal.

Such racism. colon dash open parenthesis.

It's traditional to offer them a mill girl in return, or a song delivered in the manner of Gracie Fields..

slicey - 17 Aug 2021 18:29:14 (#93 of 2017)

Not you as well Dubs. Say it ain't so!

HouseOfLametta - 17 Aug 2021 19:29:22 (#94 of 2017)

Deploy the Formby!

Dubris - 17 Aug 2021 18:30:27 (#95 of 2017)

Well I'll go to the foot of our stairs!

Dubris - 17 Aug 2021 18:45:26 (#96 of 2017)

Too much?

slicey - 17 Aug 2021 18:46:48 (#97 of 2017)

I assumed you said it in an Alan Bennett voice which makes it comedic rather than racist.

Dubris - 17 Aug 2021 18:55:20 (#98 of 2017)

Either that or Victoria Wood.

You’ll have forgotten how cold it is up in the North, slicey. Sometimes I’ve looked in on Lost threads to see the southern dwellers saying things like “lovely and warm today, had a coffee in the garden” and looked glumly at the cold grey skies outside the window pane.

Then you notice the ghosts tapping on them.
