Well quite, but I was just being friendly and I suspect you will covet one of these, when you win?

That's the sort of picture usually seen accompanying a report containing the phrase "......... before turning the gun on himself"

Not a fan of them there woolly hemelts/hemlets/helmets then, DO'L?

They seem popular hereabouts and will certainly prevent the scrotching/scotchy/scorching Sun from frazzling your forehead and other sensitivities, if pulled down!

I shall suggest to Granny Schmidt to knit another pattern for you, if you are successful on the TTFNQ.

My father used to have a restaurant in that old west end of London. Back in the 90s my brother and I used to help out (ie get under the actual waiters/kitchen staff’s feet).

We started work around 4am to prep for breakfasts and opened up around 5am. To reflect the slightly crazed mindset that we all had working at that time, a particular way of taking orders was developed which involved drawing a cartoon on the order pad of a penguin (don’t ask) or a mouse (more understandable if you have eaten out in the West End…) in some manner indicating what the customer had ordered. The kitchen staff then had to interpret the cartoon and cook what they thought the order was. This is no way to run a restaurant.

However most of the customers for breakfasts were regulars so they were fairly forgiving of the odd error (eg eggs and bacon rather than omelette etc).

As family habits tend to, this cartooning then migrated to birthday and Christmas cards once my father retired from the restaurant business as a way of keeping the spirit of messaging my means of cartoon penguin going.

I am now preparing to write a birthday card for my brother’s upcoming birthday and am sat here scratching my head after 35 years of drawing cartoon penguins and cannot think of anything to draw.

Not looking for advice, I just needed to share my plight and demonstrate that there is some real hardship in the world while you all josh around about knitted balaclavas and 80s music. Please spare a thought. I may well set up a Just Giving page for people to sympathise in the most sincere way possible.

There are,I suspect,one or two residents that sleep in those balaclavas. Mainly due to being on call to cover at the scrungeon at a drop of a hat!

Happy Birthday greetings to your brother old chap!

What about a penguin dressed as a waiter in a west end restaurant?

Good morning everyone.
The sun is up and an expected 27 degrees should be along by midday,forcast mid 30s by mid week.

Were invited to a strangers party this afternoon. It's the birthday of a granddaughter of someone we hardly know and also the parents of said child we've never met.
This sort of thing can happen in an expat community at times.
Normally I avoid all these things but I've not come up with an excuse yet. Still time though.

Madam M is progressing with her poorly hand but gets a few surging pains every now and again.

Have a great day all you trivialists.

Ah Magoo,

Thank you for the good wishes, once removed, for my brother. I will find a way to pass it on. He too is a member of this very forum so may well be aware of your efforts in Anglo Franc detente.

On your upcoming birthday party, I know exactly what you mean. As an expat (in my case I suppose I am an economic migrant) I know exactly what you mean. Lots of slightly odd invitations that make up the ones social life!

Glad Madam M on the mend and am sure the pains will pass. I say that in my capacity as a well meaning but medically ignorant observer. However it all seems to be going in the right direction.

As for those balaclavas, its all very well using them to conceal identity in the scrungeon but remember the last time wool, hemp oil and naked flames combined in the scrungeon? Bobbers nipple tassels were severely singed and we lost Frank.

Morning chaps wavey
Another beautiful sunny day, Another car to clean and polish!!

Nice to see you post again 550man, it's certainly a conundrum about the cartoon, I will admit I quite like Magoo's idea of a penguin dressed as a waiter!!
As for the whole balaclava candle incident it still makes me shudder to this day, and not in a good way!!!

What's for breakfast then spikeyhead??

I had to go to bed shortly after my last post last night as I quite literally fell asleep with my phone in my hand!!!

Overnight oats for me, I've been on a bit of a health kick this year. Was starting to feel old and I'm only 55 chronologically, though mostly 17 mentally
