Strange deliveries

I meant to post about this yonks ago .......

My teen texted me to say 'you have a parcel... can I open it?'
I replied 'okay if you must'
Teens reply 'already opened it ' (is nothing sacred)
'what is it?' I asked
'A cow!! It has no head ...It is all too weird .. I am going out .. back for tea xxx'

A headless cow!! WT....??

it looks ok to me ..........
or maybe not!!!

My teen said later she thought it was 'like one of those 'anthax type things' people send through the post!!'.... she surely watches too many horror films 


Thank you Daddy Papersurfer... I have finally bought some super glue and Colin is now complete again .... however I am not going to risk stuffing him with money as he may explode ,..... So if you could do me a favour DP, if it is not too much to ask... could you please start saving for my retirement fund dear 'devoted savant'?....
I would like to empty my pedestal and retire early in say about 7 years... that should be enough time to stash away enough to keep me in shoes and other ickle essential luxuries .... (p.s tell Bernard, Colin says hi and not to make him laugh as it could have dire results)
Thank you

Of course, I'd be delighted to look after your savings for you. Just forward everything you've got to me - I'll keep it safe and sound ..... *tries to look trustworthy*

I'm glad you managed to fix Colin ..... and I hope that the 'teen' has finished going through her melodramatic stage ......

[excellent word verification 'copswit' - tee hee]

mmm you looking after my savings wasn't exactly what I had in mind I was more thinking of you contributing on my behalf ... of course we could come to some deal about % commission and all that!!

As for teen getting over the melodramatic stage.. that may take even more time ....

:)

We brought a whole herd back from Surfugal Nursey ...... they're very tasteful ......

You could fill these and then change the coins for £50 notes so as not to damage Colin.....http://goo.gl/1AoV

Goodness only knows what Customs thought about the heard coming through the x ray machine ......

Ohholy cow GW .... fabby idea .....

just had a thought I should have titled this 'cowabunga'..... or 'cowawonga'...

70steen said...

Hi NM ... maybe there is a one DP is saving up for you ... obviously it will be a long time til your retirement ... that will cost DP some (corsetry is so much more expensive than shoes;) )

...I'm waiting for you two to start planning for cow date outings, sleepovers, and the torrent of videos.

70steen said...

JC ... Colin is not up for too much activity [blame DPs bad packing and my Pound shop superglue].. sleepovers would be a nightmare due to the logistics .... all dating would have to be on line .. however as Bernard and Colin are siblings I will not be party to that .*shudder*

;)

John C said...

I was talking about 'play dates'...not THAT! People with animals they care for are known to set up their pets on outings...just sayin'.

...course I wasn't the one picturin' hanky panky between the two bulls, now was I? *gigglesnort*

fracas said...

Sure... I go away for a wee holiday and you all fall victim to udder nonsense.

{{I'm sure we can blame it on DP.}}

John C said...

...is it bad form to virtually go ninny that Fracas has spoken? Not that I'm a stalker or nothin'.

fracas said...

Oh my word... someone actually missed me? Well, I mean... I know all those people offering me pharmaceuticals and asking me to see their resumes; the women swearing I asked them to send me their naughty pictures and still other blokes assuring me they have genuine rolex watches for $19.99... I'm well aware they missed me because they never stopped emailing me... but this... this is evidence a real person missed me.

My day is now filled with udder joy.

So before you attacked it with the super glue, it could have been a cookie jar! Not that you could retire on that many cookies.
:)

70steen said...

wow there has been some gossip going on down whilst I was away ... Dear Frac I was missed by 140 genuine rolex's, vigra sellers and Blomindale offers ... I missed you

John I love the way you go ninny over Dear Frac it shows your softer side ;)

NGIP Hi.. what a fab idea for a cookie jar ... he wouldn't have fitted many in though so I would have had to eat them instead... mmmm now that sounds like a good idea too :)

fracas said...

Aww, thanks sis... I've missed you all too!
