OK, This is just for Anam

Riddle-me-ree


My first is in Anam but never in Cara

My second's no desert but found in Sahara

My third is so far, but also so near

My fourth is in liquor but never in beer

My fifth is an insect but not it's generic

My sixth's part of bishop, but not found in cleric

My seventh's in runner and also in race

My eighth doth exclaim and expresses a space

My ninth, so polite, it’s ‘thee’ and it’s ‘thou’

My tenth when it’s doubled – a horse, but no cow

My ultimate letter’s the first in my name

My whole is a place with a school of some fame

And, if after all this you don’t take the carrot -

You’ll just get the stick, and sit under the parrot!

Cheers, K

Utterly butterly Kessie! twinks what's she bloody on about. If your dumb then no steam emerges!
Royal Society - what a package she is. Why is it some people have all this talent and I swim in oil painting to every ones complete indifference! The first women that says "love your art Terry" - I shall immediately propose too. Just thought! La Rosa might be up for it.

I take it that last was a volatile substance, not a place?
I think I used to travel on 'those'trains as a youngster?

A bit of both!
Actually despite all this mirth - I am seriously, seriously pissed off at the moment, with a totally unexpected and depressing family crisis, - sorry - not the sort of thing I want to broadcast, even anonymously.
I am going to London for the weekend, and I'll take my pictures for the exhibition - its so long since I've exhibited anything there I expect I've totally misjudged the thing and none of them will be accepted, but if they are - at least it will be something cheering. Incidentally, which side of the stones are you? - just curious, never fear!

Nothing at all, I'm afraid, but thanks for asking. Just so angry and upset I can't speak about it for the moment.

Look you two - think of our American readers - stop being so locally intellectual. Besides you have lost me completely. Worked out riddle me ree and backed me the winner last week- thanks Kes!

Anyway I am just a mouthful of nails at the moment. Walking around like a confused idiot without the wonder women to help make decisions. Yes you do have a place in a mans home - but then the carpets will get laid and the heating fixed. I will eventually decide the best place for the furniture - the colour of the curtains - the outside deck built. But then - even then - a women is just nice to have around I reluctantly suppose, ( smile)

twinks and kes - talk building trade talk to me and then I shall match you brick for brick!

Twinks - - did you like the builders talk as well - this must come first before the last.
Good to know I have fellow builders around because I bloody well need them at the mo!

I have no time to dwell here really but you are such a laugh ( even though I understand so little of your between chat) Just getting my builders belt on again - I shall walk outside and cause all the neibours to admire my hairy chest and Madeline - but I have no builders bum to talk of left to peek out of the back. But skills I have a plenty. Going to rent myself out as soon as I have the house fixed. I am a trained building surveyor but I love getting my hands on my tool bag. I love design and I also love creating all sorts of things with my hands. I have sculpted some very strange faces - but never a turkey leg - gee did you see that one go! Zinnie!!!!!!!

Well! I'm still laughing.
The only time I've ever driven/used a digger I had great fun digging away at a big hole until I realised that it was getting perilously near my tracks, and I was about to fall into it. Come to think of it, - that's the story of my life.
What on earth's a Madeline?? The only thing I know resembling that name is a place in Paris and those dear little cakes - er - do you get them in the 'cage', Tw?

Opps Medallion!
Yes fallen into my own tracks a few times - but what fun it is when you get out of the hole said "Sally to Harry". As they smoked a fag.

Twinks. With trade terminology like 'before it goes off' could only have come from someone close to you who is a plasterer or a builder. Am I right - have you had a lover builder or a brother builder?

Twinks- Well you fooled me and I would have put money on it that you had a close one in the building trade. Very few women would know how to wet down plaster and polish it. I think you would make quite an impression on a building site.

I expect Kessie is now caught up with her exhibition at the RA - so its just us chickens over the weekend. I still walk about with a mouthful of nails - boxed in my open staircase today. Going to veg out with the movie on five tonight along with - for company a great bottle of red!

Started planting up the roses I brought from the old house (in Pots). Now that we have had that downpour I can just manage to get a spade in the earth and release the roots from the pots. Ground here is as hard as a rock.

So tell us something about your sister - is she your only sibling?

Do you like real life people stories - I worked for a housing Association for many years in London and I met some wonderful tenants. So the old memory banks are full - could you manage a few?

Twinks - When I say boxed in I mean I have put risers up to the treads.

One day I was sitting in my office when one of the housing officer came bursting in. Mr B please come to the reception I cannot get rid of this tenant - she insists one seeing you.

The women was complaining about blue bottles flies in her bathroom. Please come immediately I cannot stand flies! She had a flat in a four storie Victorian mid terrace property near the Portobello Road in London. " Well madam I cannot leave my office to look at flies!" She replied "well send someone quickly - today - soon". And off she went.

I phoned a builder and told him about the amount of distress this lady was showing - he said "I will send my young son he is hanging around the yard with nothing to do" About an hour later the boy was back in my office- his face was white and had staring scared eyes. Mr B come to that house please come with me. On arrival I found the tenant hiding in the front room refusing to come out to the hallway. The young man pointed up to the ceiling where the fan was fitted (internal Bathroom no windows) The fan was missing - he then pointed to inside the bath when I asked him where the fan was. Beside the fan was a huge snake a Boer Constrictor I think. You see the flies was coming from the ceiling vent and when I removed it - this bloody great snake shot down hit me on the head - I dropped the lot into the bath! Some weeks later I was talking about this to another group of tenants within the same block. One said "Oh that's where he disappeared to was it. I said" -----"what disappeared" --- "My pet snake". Well how did it get onto the roof? Oh I put him out of the roof hatch on sunny days - so he must have slipped down the vent some two stories! Oh my gosh - tenants keep some funny pets!!!!

Yes the snake was dead - but to the tenant it was very much still alive in her mind. She said" I keep imagining sitting in my bath all relaxed and that monster come dropping form the ceiling to keep me company" I thought "yes it was possible because fans are lightly fixed to the ceiling."

Boxed a few handrails in my time - no the missing risers will not allow me to continue up the stairs with the living room carpet. It looks much better come check it out. (smile) And no! I can still climb the stairs without the wobbles - you just watch it twinks or I will get the Kes pot onto you. Neither will I need you to cut up my meal at the Marlborough.
