Ever since he was coughing all night with nerves before his cataract appointment I have been giving the old man a drop of whiskey at night.He looks forward to it and it meant i knew what to get him for his 93rd birthday.

If I am giving it to him he gets about a tablespoonful,I'm not made of money already! His mate,however, gives him a far more generous dollop.

His mate doesn't live here does he? It wuldn't matter to his mate if he was singing all night would it?

He has had a stroke.He gets his mucking firds wuddled! Do I want to lie in bed listening to 'Roll Out the Goldfish' and 'The Wheels on the Horse', not to mention@I'll Take You Home Again Horseradish'!

:-D :-D

My OH had her BP checked. She is 59 and very fit. Yummy actually, but I digress. First time it was 195/87!!!!!!! Second time it was 130/85.

Nurse said it was "white coat disease". I am the same. Always at least 20 more the first time on the higher number (the apostolic scale or something)

Hope Fred is well relaxed for his cataract appointment. I would need a general anaesthetic to calm me down :-D ;-)

How about a nice rum in hot milk for yourself at bedtime? Then you could either nod off or simply join in the chorus. ;-)


All the best,

Mayfield.

PS I was such a whimp I had to be knocked right out for my cataract op!
