Where Have I Been? … Well

In my wisdom rather than coughing up a lung each month for an expensive internet charges I thought I’d change providers …. BIG MISTAKE as you may or may not know I live in ‘The Tangled Backwoods’ ~  it transpires not all internet providers are equal, the new provider had a download speed something akin to the light a penny candle gives off in a hurricane

slow internet
Let’s just say it’s a good job Beloved and have been married for 72 million years ~ he already knows I have the patience of a 2yr old in a sweet shop

Anyhoo back to the old provider it is …. I’m currently booked in for surgery to remove a kidney for this months charges,

What was I going to tell you ? oh yes a few weeks back Beloved & I took Moo to Woodhall Spa’s 1940’s festival ~ I love it we get to travel hold up all the traffic in Millicent Morris while we pootle along at 35mph (45mph downhill LOL) while we are dressed in our finest 1940’s gear.

We discussed with Moo the importance of good manners and decorum while out & about and how discipline had changed over the years …. I don’t think he believed us UNTIL

Moo 2018
It was demonstrated just how a policeman would take an unruly child by the ear and give it a good darn tweak !!

No child was harmed during this photo shoot (although political correctness may have taken a bashing)  many a passer-by was heard to be chuckling and stories being told of how the very same thing had happened in their youth….. listening to some of tales I’m not  surprised some of them had their ear tweaked 🙂

  1. Some kids now a days should be taken by the ear more often. And a good paddling might do wonders. Oh-oh, I’m in trouble for that probably! 🙂 Anyway, glad you are back and I seen this post. My how Moo has grown! Turning into a very handsome young man. I hope your surgery will come out okay. Sorry you have to have it. Take care. Hugs!

    1. Lovely to hear from you xx
      How have you been ?? I hope life is treating you & yours well
      Some kids could definitely benefit from going back in time discipline wise LOL
      Moo will be 9 in a couple of weeks … where does the time go ???

      1. Hi Roma! Not only for discipline, but have their mouth washed out with soap! I am amazed at the language some kids under 5 or 6 has. Of course I suppose they hear it from their parents.
        We have been doing okay. Getting older and feeling the aches and pains of working on cement floors, falling off horses or lifting too much in our younger days! 🙂 I have missed your posts. I don’t miss fb, but I do miss the occasional posts from you and others that I don’t hear from as much now. Sounds like you are very busy with a new grand baby and Shepard puppy.
        9! Oh my! Moo really has grown up! Tell him hello for me. Hugs! xx
