What a heartening photo after all the dreadful scenes we now see in Wigan Town Centre with druggies lying about all over the place! Lovely to see these two happy relaxed gentlemen. xx

Great word Irene , ‘heartening’ to capture
Mick’s picture . Some words just hit the mark , the two just come together on their own ..

I'll admit to being prone to confusion these days , but the Mick who posted a comment at 13.34 , appears to possess a strikingly similar grasp of English grammar as the Mick who posted the photo . Has the Shevy Thunderbolt taken to commenting on his own photos lately. or have we acquired yet another Mick?

Terminally Confused .(or TC to close friends).

Welcome to our little planet Ozy. You’ll soon get to like it here in terminally confused land.
We used to be a small community of like mindless people but since Brexit came on the scene our little community has increased beyond all recognition.
People of all kinds have joined us recently. Of course, when they first arrive they are in a terrible state (Facial tics are not uncommon) but after a good rub down with hot clinkers from the Aga (Did I mention that we had a Aga) they soon come round.
We are very free and easy here Ozy, although we do have standards that we like to keep to. For instance, recently we caught a foolish young man putting the milk in his cup BEFORE pouring the tea. Of course, he was given a severe flogging and returned to the normal people where he belonged. We don’t want that kind of uncouth cove coming here by jove!
Look forward to seeing you soon Ozy

Yours in complete befuddlement

You are definitely correct in your assumption Ozy as only Mick gets his 'there' 'their' and 'they're' in a the wrong places - I think it's his 'trademark' as it happens.....he's probably 'fiddling' the comments! ;o)

I must admit Dtease although I belong to the terminally confused club, like wot you and Ozy are members of, I do like my tea and coffee in a china cup ( not together you understand). I just love the chink, chink of lovely China. I am not guilty of pouring the cream or sterilised milk in the cup first though..I would find that abhorrent! Since Brexit I find myself stuttering and spluttering quite often and wonder if there is a remedy for this....any advice would be welcome within reason.....

Allow me to begin by stating , ( and just in case you were wondering ), that I'm currently in the process of experimenting with abbreviating my allonym.
But Lordy! Zounds! Sacred blue! and Zut Alors!,, here's me thinking that I'm the only gay in the village in possession of an AGA, ........( I'm not particularly gay actually, although it has been noted that I can be quite jovial on occasions ).....when it transpires that DTease also has one.......Whoah!....Haddon!, Stop the blimmin' press....ticker tape message just coming through from Daisy Hill......dit...dit..de..dit..dit...[ iron the blimmin' carpet stop...( it's a little bit hazy )., .tea. stop., ...coffee .stop., China cup .stop....together. stop. ]
I'll give that one a go fust thing t'morn.

Now Veebs, you do realise don't you that if the thought police just happen to look in on this site , your chink, chink, China comment may just be interpretated as being non pc?
Its just that I'm reminded of the D of E's
" slitty eyes " comment back in the 60s., and you'll no doubt recall the bother that he got into over that one.
Now I was just poised to air my views on Brexit in actual fact, but the cat's just been in the litter tray and beaten me to it.

Regards. O.

Hmmm!, I'm not convinced that one will work.

Veronica, when discussing Brexit stuttering and spluttering is the ideal ploy for coming out on top every time. Let’s face it, your opponent will, more than likely be talking gibberish as well. The difference is he or she will be so far gone that his or her one remaining brain cell will be totally overloaded, meanwhile you can carry on for hours stuttering and spluttering as it requires no brain power whatever.
Boris has used this ploy for years and he’s still spluttering along like a good un. Likewise Jeremy whose overloaded brain cell rarely carries him through a full sentence without a quick glance at his cheat sheet.
Have no fears Veronica, you will find yourself more than welcome in Terminally Confused land.

Yours Disheveled DTease.

I once took part in in a talking gibberish competition. Feeling a bit thirsty after partaking in the salty bacon eating competition , I ordered a pint of Warsteiner, only to be informed in no uncertain terms that performance enhancing substances were completely forbidden.

Thank you one and all for allaying my fears....
Yours in total Bewilderment ....
