This Is The End, My Friend...

Mrs Whistler Finally Gets A Visitor

digital collage January 2009

In response to today's announcement that the pension age is to be raised, I'm re-posting one of my very early blog entries...

"Old Mrs Whistler? Oh yeah, she's in the room at the end of the corridor. Funny old stick, doesn't say much, never wants to go in the lounge with the others. We've put a telly in her room but she hardly ever watches it. She's got a son, artist or something like that, but he never comes to visit her. Would you like to take her cup of tea in with you?"

It can be a lonely, scary place and we're all going there.

Congratulations, Miss Lumi! This is an oldie but a goodie, and I still love the art.

Thank you Cat and Kathy! How are you both? Cat, this year, we have been using organic slug pellets and they appear to be doing the trick. The idea is that the slugs munch on them and then go underground where they die and their bodies cannot be found by birds and amphibians. Our crops of cucumbers and courgettes have never looked better and we are growing cabbages for the first time ever. Happy days!
