“Where are my glasses?”

….or coping with memory loss.

My grandson, Jeremy, has a joke he likes to tell. It goes something like this.

Long John Silver stands on the empty deck of his ship and yells,

“Where’s me Buccaneers?”

To which his Parrot replies,

“On the side of y’buccan head y’fool.”

Which lends a bit of credence to that old saying , ”I’d lose my head if it wasn’t screwed on.”

I know it’s certainly true of myself. I couldn’t begin to guess how many times have I have lost something, only for it to turn up in the most unusual place.

Now in the case of my poor neighbour , Marge, she lost something but never got it back. It was her husband, Rodney. She lost him in Sainsbury’s.

It was too terrible and took her ages to get over the shock.

There they were doing the ‘weekly shop’, you how it is, ladies , yes, and had just walked by the hardware section. Marge knows her Rodney has a thing for nuts and bolts and especially assorted screws so she told him to , ”Wait here, okay?” while she went off to check out the pickled fish. After popping some herring into her trolley she went back to the hardware section and Rodney had disappeared. Now she was sure she had left him in this isle as she usually did every week and Rodney would happily while away the time waiting for Marge’s return by fiddling with all the nuts and bolts and other things men love to play with. But as she turned into the isle pushing her trolley -no Rodney. She was distraught and even after an exhaustive search he didn’t turn up.

Yet , after nearly six months she received a postcard from an anonymous person who claimed they had seen Rodney in Sydney with an Australian hooker.  Marge was as distraught as she was baffled as she knew Rodney hated rugby.

Well, my dears, the point of this post is to make sure you keep your mind and your eyes sharp. And it could do no harm if we all learned  a bit about rugby too I suppose. Men and their balls eh?

BFN. All the best. Love Aunty Jane x

      Well, that’s a relief for you, dear. At least you can be assured your hubby wont be chasing after one of those hookers like Rodney was seen with. And Australian as well! Dreadful business. Poor Marge.

          Good for you. Get them out of the house, but make sure they stay close at hand. The garden is always good for them. Go and fiddle about in the greenhouse with their tomatoes or something.
          I’m off to make a cuppa. Marge is popping around. She says she found this book in her daughter’s bedroom called Karmly Suture or something. She says she hasn’t looked at it but thinks its about stitching and needlework.
          I shall tell you all about it later. BFN.

            Well, after seeing your lovely veggies hubby is thinking of starting his own vegatable garden Aunty Jane. It sure made him excited. 🙂

            Enjoy the cuppa and please do tell me everything that you and Marge talked about. She sounds like such an interesting person. That Karmly Suture book sure sounds very interesting as well. Until later then and enjoy! 🙂 *hugs*
