My wife is not stupid but she is prone to come out with spoonerisms. I was sorting some ancestry stuff the other day and she said, "What are you doing now?" I replied, " " I need to get these in order as I am now going into the 1600s. Wow! she said the way you are going you will soon be back to the time of NORMAN the CONQUERER. She was none too please when I had a fit of the giggles. My thought for the day is, if you have any you would care to share with us, save them till next month perhaps we could make a page of them.

As we are approaching the end of the month I"m still waiting for someone to answer the last question in my article. Did anyone ever hear a cuckoo on the estate? The first one that I heard was somewhere north of St Albans when I'd camped for the night on one of my solo weekend trips. Del.

jim davis said...

Hi Del I heard them just across the Brent whilst playing Golf a couple of times.

Yep, I heard some up the Cucks and in the conker trees.
According to an old wive's tale, if you heard an owl hoot at night in the conker trees, it meant someone was going to die.

my thought for the day is, Why are men so condescending towards women.
I think Norman the conqueror is an excellent answer,I bet if she hadn't have told you Jim you wouldnt have known. Typical chauvenist, when will you ever learn that we women are always right. Me thinks that I am going to win the lottery tommorrow and
go off on holiday with the love of my life. Del in early spring when I went out for my paper round at 6am I used to hear the cuckoo every morning either from the Brent or the old cuckoo schools, I must admit although I have lived in lots of villages in Suffolk Norfolk and Essex I have never heard them again. Now I hear cuckooites instead, a different species of bird.

Hi Yvonne, Common Cuckoos are migratory and usually return in April.
Sadly the Easter Bunny that I had seen all winter seems to have vanished, I think the return of some large red tailed hawks may have something to do with that.
Did Norman the Conkerer ever live on the Estate?

jim davis said...

Oh well Yvonne what can I say, I expected you to say everyone knows Cuckoos dont live in trees, they live in clocks. You're not blonde now are you?

Tommy said...

I just love it,to hear Jim and Yvonne go at it is worth the price of admission

Del said...

Was that the same Norman who had a ruckus with Harold on the beach? Old King Hal was the first registered victim of 'friendly fire,' you know? Nelson was another one, that's where the naval expression, "Aye aye," comes from. Not many people know that! Del

jim davis said...

Not a lot of people know this either, on the eve of the battle that was to change the history of England foreever, King Harold called his army to gether and laid out the plans he had for the coming battle. Finally he addressed his archers with their famouse longbows and said. "Now be careful you could have someones eye out with one of those"

yvonneh said...

Hi Jim , I am not sure I want to know about the Archers, never liked them on the radio, what are mouse longbows , do they squeak when someone gets hit. Are you colour blind or what, when we were kids I had brown hair, when we played golf a few years ago I had brown hair,When I sent in my photo and at our first reunion my hair was brown, anyway better than being the ginger tom from across the road.
Tom glad you like the banter, Ireally missed Brian for that, now i have found someone else who shares my sense of humour

jim davis said...

Yvonne you should have gone to Spec Savers because you are seeing things I have not writen. I wondered why you would do that and I thought, are I know, she has changed her hair colouring I bet she has become Dumb Blonde. Oh! boy now look what you have done. I am glad it is nearly the end of the month, the other dumb blondes will forget all about this in a couple of days. I hope.

jim davis said...

Anyway How was I to know what colour you are now Yvonne, Blonde seemed reasonable ander the circumstances. I could, of course said a blue or pink rinse just as easily. Those colours seem to be all the rage with women that are, Err! Mmm! Err! well you know.

jim davis said...

Yvonne Might I also ask what it is you did underneath the Arches that you don't want to be reminded of them. Gather round lads this could get interesting.

yvonneh said...

Jim if you look at your previous comment you asked me if I was blonde now. My eyesight is perfect as is my mind, which is more than I can say for yours unless you have been at the mothers ruin.I said the ArcheRs which is what you were talking about. So what was it you got up to under the arches Jim. I dont even know where they are, My mum must have as she was always singing "Underneath the Arches" So come on Jim what did YOU used to do there?
Come on you blondes and pink and blue rinses (older Ladies)dont let the little whippersnapper get away with the insults

jim davis said...

You read the book Yvonne mine was on top of the arches opposite the Ace Cafe. Now you don't really want me to tell you surely?.

georgek said...

How do you turn a dishwasher into a snowplough?

jim davis said...

Just give you wife a shovel George.

georgek said...

Your right Jim,oh god, what will Yvonne think?

jim davis said...

Who cares George she doesn't scare me.

yvonneh said...

If I dont scare you Jim youve certainly become braver in your dotage, and George dont tell me we have another man with an attitude, are they all the same these male cuckooites. Good Lord is there no hope for us cuckooitesses, no wonder the majority of us, married men from off the estate.

jim davis said...

Yvonne there are men , and there are real men, and us Cuckooites men belong to the latter category. Just take a look at us all, what more could a red blooded woman want.

Tommy said...

Born and raised in Brantswalk.what more can I say,men from Cuckoo avenue where allways the perfect gentlemen.

Ted baker said...

Hi there its great to hear you lot taking the micky out of each other.Ihard a great joke the other day and im still laugh at it.
Well here goes. An Israel doctor says, Medicine in my country is so advanced that we can take a kidney from one man,put it in other and have him looking for work in 6 weeks.
a German doctor says Thats nothing, we can take a lung from one person,put it in another. and have him looking for work in 4 weeks. american said thats nothing. We recently took a man with no brains out of taxas,put him in the white house for 8 years,and now half the world is out of work. very funny im still laughing just the thing for the morning,

yvonneh said...

Please tell me Jim, which category are you in as there is nothing about boys.
Tom, I wonder how many of us cuckooite ladies married the gentlemen from cuckoo avenue, as most of us rejected you and married outside the estate, I wonder why? perhaps it was those spotty faced youths that put us off.
Ted we have lots of joshing and harmless fun. Regarding your joke, absolutely NO comment.

jim davis said...

Me Yvonne? Oh I spent a lot of time being a Gigolo. I was very good at too. I missed my calling though I should have been a playboy.

Tommy said...

Hi Ted,the saying here in the U.S. is there is a village in Texas that is missing a idiot.
