Hello,

Happy New Year. I hope you enjoyed Christmas.

I got the box set of Smokey And The Bandit and a jumper. I wore the jumper down to the Pickled Filtrum for the Xmas lunchtime pint. My mate Stabman used it to wipe blood up from the pub floor. He saw a man drinking Guinness. He has a thing about people drinking Guinness in confined spaces.

It was nice to have our son Lawrence home from the Young Offenders Institute for the day. You should have seen his face when he unwrapped the Ankle Tag cover Shirley had knitted for him! (he appreciated the crafty stash pouch hidden in Santa’s beard.) Thinks of everything does Shirl.

As I nipped in to the smallest room to unburden myself of the Brussels on Boxing Day, Shirl stops me at the door, thrusts a can of Haze “Scent Of The Forest” into my hand and said, “A liberal squirt please. Remember we are going shopping in 10 minutes.” This didn’t give me the time to study racing form. I had to settle on Substance Abuse in the 2.30 at Kempton (I thought Lawrence being home was an omen regarding drug use). It romped in. Seventh.

Why town? Shirley wasn’t too impressed with the gifts of a toasted sandwich maker and a wind up torch. Handy, practical and self cleaning gifts never go down well. But I should have learned after the retractable rolling pin last year.

Burt Reynolds was wonderful in Smokey and the Bandit by the way.

Christ he’s hairy. Felt like throwing him a stick to fetch at one point.

Laters.

Hello,

I hope you enjoyed Christmas.

I got a new ointment for my rash, the box set of Smokey And The Bandit and a jumper. I wore the jumper down to the Pickled Filtrum for the traditional Xmas lunchtime pint. My mate Stabman used it to wipe blood up from the pub floor. He saw a man drinking Guinness. He has a thing about people drinking Guinness in confined spaces does Stabman. This and his psychotic condition make for uneasy bedfellows.

It was nice to have our son Lawrence home from the Young Offenders Institute for the day. You should have seen his face when he unwrapped the  Ankle Tag cover Shirley had knitted for him! (he appreciated the crafty stash pouch hidden in Santa’s beard.) Thinks of everything does Shirl.

As I nipped in to the smallest room to unburden myself of the Brussels, Shirl stops me at the door, thrusts a can of Haze “Scent Of The Forest” into my hand and said, “Use this and get yer arse into town in five minutes.” This didn’t give me the time to study racing form. I had to settle on Substance Abuse in the 2.30 at Kempton (I thought Lawrence being home was an omen regarding drug use). It romped in seventh.

Why town? For some reason Shirley wasn’t too impressed with my gifts of a toasted sandwich maker and a wind up torch. Handy, practical and self cleaning gifts never seem to go down well. But I should have learned after the compost bin last year.

Burt Reynolds was wonderful in Smokey and the Bandit by the way. Made my Christmas.

Laters.

Hello!

As that bloke sang, “It’s the most wonderful time of the year……..” and we at Fightback Towers have been very touched to receive gifts from friends in America!

The wonderfully talented (she is the best writer bar none!) and hilarious Accidental Cootchie Mama, Andra Watkins relented to my pleadings (Bribe) and is sending me an Ella Fitzgerald CD as part of her ace set of Christmas Songs posts. Andra’s Site is HERE!

Thanks Andra. There is only one way to repay you – here is Ella with a sausage on her head.

Also many thanks to that Titan Of Cincinnati, A Frank Angle,  for honouring GFB with TWO gifts (one for me and one for Oily George!) Oily’s is entirely appropriate for our very own Porn Mogul turned lifestyle/mucky thoughts guru.

You can find out what Frank has given us HERE!

We are equally touched by delightful Debra who writes the marvellous Breathelighter Blog  for also suggesting that we should be the recipients of Grab Bag 12 on Franks’s list. I will leave it to you to discover Grab Bag 12.

Oily George is deeply touched  (and is deeply touching himself as I write) that so many of you see him as a perv (which he is). I would say you should not rub him up the wrong way but as far as he is concerned (and to misquote Bachman Turner Overdrive) “Any rubbin’ is good rubbin'”.

Once again many thanks! (And I hope the links work).
