News from various other fronts!

As time went on, me & Norman kept getting bitten and trodden on. The first aid kit was forever out!

A while ago a few of us got together and set up a Pig Club. Norman was in charge of getting the pig. We expected a little piglet, but what in fact arrived was the most enormous pig we'd ever seen. It turned out to be quite vicious pig & kept escaping into Enid's kitchen.

Well we expected this to happen at some point. The pig escaped. It ran off, knocking Enid flying, and got knocked over buy the coalman's truck. Norman sorted out the doings. I must admit, on the whole, none of us quite expected to see half a pig laid on Enid's kitchen table!

We all had a marvellous community Christmas in the church hall last year. I got Mrs T a new hat & she knitted me a new pullover (I kept it on all day!) A very splendid time was had by all.  But the Beecham's pills needed to come out again the following day as I appeared to catch the Boxing Day Bug! Although Mrs T said I just ate too much! (It was a bug though!)

We had a splendid time at the local fete. Rupert won a rosette for being a handsome chap (well he did have his bow tie on!) & Enid won the Most Unusual Vegetable Competition with a carrot that she believed bore a striking resemblance to Stan Laurel!

We always like to make sure we're all safe in the Anderson shelter during an air raid.
