Sweltering Fred

Today, as we all know, was Sausage Sandwich Day.

Having had his hair cut, done his shopping and eaten his sausage sandwich, Fred came back home on the bus. As it was hot and he had been busy I foolishly expected him to want to lie on the bed for a bit.

Silly me, he wanted to go out again so I had quickly to think up an errand for him.

A woman in the village had promised me a herb bush and Fred had been to get it yesterday but missed her because she had nipped out when he got there. Fred insisted I should telephone the woman to be sure she would be there for him.

She was at home and said she would be there when he arrived but wondered if I didn't think it was too hot for him to be going out.

Well, yes, probably, but what the hell does it matter what I think/

Fred knows best or thinks he does. :-D Hope he got home safely with the herb bush.


Sharron Report 17 Jul 2013 22:42

Oh yes, we had already had the hat search because he had put his baseball cap in the wrong place yesterday and no other baseball cap was suitable.

He's determined, will say that for him!

Lesser mortals would give in in this heat!



Sharron Report 18 Jul 2013 16:43

He's been out again today.

Off to the church hall for our lunch. The table cloths have already been washed and he is now up the garden with his mate putting them on the line.

I am just lying here in a limp heap.

My MIL is still single, Fred! :-D


Sharron Report 18 Jul 2013 16:58

I have been trying to get him married off for some time and he does come with vegetables!

Every Harvest Festival he has a bag of veg delivered to him.


GinN Report 18 Jul 2013 17:04

Well, my MIL is a country lass, and loves her veggies. Could be a match!


Sharron Report 18 Jul 2013 17:06

Could be a load off my mind!

He is also promised to the mother of one of the receptionists at the surgery. We just hope they don't go in for a baby.

As he doesn't know about either I suppose it would be alright for him to have several wives.

Sharron Report 18 Jul 2013 17:18

I hope others will explain to you. They will do it better than I.

Fred is the main man Nolls :-D

Sharron, tell Fred his Villa is ready for him, but please tell him, not to have his music up too loud, like he usually does, as Cliff Richard has bought the next Villa to me, and he likes a bit of quiet, does Cliffy :-D

Fred, although he probably doesn't know it, brings a spot of light relief and laughter to the Chat Board. He pops up almost daily by kind permission of Sharron.
