folly

O yes, good readers, am well aware of what that word means. Perhaps, these days, just sit on the sidelines. The archetypical old bloke in button up denim overalls, sitting on the porch of some struggling general store out in the backblocks; idly whittling at some stick with a very sharp knife - pondering what has been, should be, and probably yet to come.

Watching the beautiful, absolutely  gorgeous, wonderful  perfectly formed young people cavort among the fields of springtime flowering.

mmm, sounds like a story ... if Mills 'n Boon hadn't pinched it .. heh.

So, let me twist it slightly.
Some old bloke with no teeth, nor back-up finance briefly meets tall blonde with two hip replacements. Some sort of vague mutual interests.

This doesn’t sound very autobiographical. Well, I always assumed you had teeth. And since you are younger than me, I would never think of you as an old bloke. Still less ‘some’ old bloke. Yet the idea of the story by some route entered your head.

Vincent, ok, "no teeth" is non factual. Have retained six. They're blackened and ugly .. BUT THEY ARE STILL MINE .. if that makes sense.

Davoh said...

and no .. the "cosmetic" version of "nice teeth" is beyond the pocketbook of me and the local gummint.

Odd, really, when one is associating with animals. "teeth" are mostly associated with aggression .....

Davoh said...

and yes, Vincent .. when i say 'tall' there may be be more than where she stands. i measure .. weel, used to measure 5'9" in my socks.

This lady measures 5'9" stooped.
ERK

perhaps fantasy, perhaps not.

Long story.

Better than associating with animals, though ...

Take no notice, I'm bad, can't resist a bit of word-play.

I made them take out the last of my teeth and feel better because of it. Eating what I want is no problem now, I have two old fashioned food grinders and can even turn nuts into nut butter.

A tall blonde with two hip replacements would be swell if you get along good and said relationship doesn't require ropes and pulley's for certain activities. :-)

I have a perfectly fitting upper denture with thirteen of my own at the bottom, all in good order and photogenic white.

Anon. This is the blog for tired old men sitting on the back porch reminiscing and whittling their lives away. btw weird music.' hi davo , lost yer bike or run out of travel dockets?

WOT? Vestie .. wot music? wot bike? Travel dockets? .... nah, previous anonymous is not me ... elderish computer is under stress .. well, XP pro box is operating well .. the "monitor" ie, the bit that allows a human being to actually 'see' and try to interpret what's actually 'happening' in the 'black box' - has sort of shat itself. ODD, really, my eyes are still operational, can see what's happening around me; try to decipher 'body language' from the local humans and animals ..


am now trying to "retrain" an $AU800-00 laptop .. presumably sold to me as "the latest". Has no memory of me and what have been doin for the past 67 years.

Bit like being confronted with a "newborn" (and yes, holding the hand of a woman i loved; did watch the emergence of a son, the opening to reveal the emergence of a human being - some 35 years ago).

What IS this toxicity - FORGET yesterday _ Believe Me NOW?

Loadda crap.

If and when can get this idiot laptop (and its 'windows' assumptions' working .. might get somewhat angry.

ME, Davo

Must be getting tough for comment when one accepts shoe adverts.

You still on your perch?

And here I thought studies showed people got happier as they aged...sounds like you want to stab yourself with a stick out of envy of the gorgeous bodys.

I believe in assisted suicide you can put the stick away and breath easy.

Hi Odds .OK .. allow me to reply ..

Happiness is within the beholder.

'bodies' is actually spelled that way. Why should i take much notice of dickheads?
