viewing the bars

The day after our return to the PPP HQ, for a treat I walked on the grass in the park, and got away with it. Next, there was a formal viewing of the gold bars at the bank vault. It must have done my head in, because afterwards I managed to walk into a lamp post, breaking my specs but not my nose. Blood everzwhere, but people have been so helpful, advising me to always look where I'm going. Now, why didn't I think of that!

Piddledorf is a very small town where nothing happens, so I half-expect a local newspaper headline - "visiting relative of local politician survives collision after walking on grass".

The town is too small for an internet cafe, but they do have an internet pub, where I'm now typing this after breakfast, amongst chain-smoking serious drinkers. And in a one-horse town, who can blame them? If it wasn't for Erdinger weissbier and the double ration of bliss pills, I might lose the will to live.

Meanwhile, Albert is attending an annual re-enactment of the day the Kaiser stepped out of his carriage.

  1. I say!

    I'm rather busy with the cricket, just now.

    However, what a wonderful sounding re-enactment. Was the Kaiser caught short, or was there another reason for his visit to Piddledorf?

  2. I say!

    I have it on good authority from the north of this Warm Heart of Africa, that this will sort anything, especially mental illness, or even at a pinch Piddledorf Protestant Potty Training Regime (PPPTR). If it fails, see the Staff Nurse at the Zomba Mental Hospital, just up the road from here. Tell them that I sent you.

  3. Mingers. Good theory. That could explain how it got the name Piddledorf.

    Mingers again. That's another Brian link, isn't it?

  4. Albert? Do they have a nazi memorabilia shop there? I wouldn't mind one of those nazi soldier hats for riding on my bike.

  5. Mackers. Not sure they issue helmets to foot soldiers.
