Internetless Granny

Good Morning All.

Today, according to the radio, is officially, the first day of winter.
Well,well, well.
I stepped outside(no spiderweb) and it was a balmy morning.
Not a breath of wind and a waning moon.
If this is winter it can stay.

Last night I realised something.
Something somewhat disturbing.
Yesterday I cancelled my gigs as I want a new package for this month.
So last night I was internetless.
I couldn’t even access my e-mail.
It was dreadful.
I was completely lost.
Just how dependant have I become on my daily internet fix?

Do I need a kick up the butt?

My daughter sent me the above pic via mms over the weekend.

Grandchild number seven at four weeks.
I hope she never reads this post.

£3.00, and stuck his head into the opening, at which
time the machine started to buzz and whirl. Fifteen seconds later the
salesman pulled out his head and surveyed his reflection, which
reflected the best haircut of his life.

Two feet away was another machine with a sign that read,

‘Why not?’ thought the salesman.  He paid the money, inserted his
hands into the slot, and the machine started to buzz and whirl.
Fifteen seconds later he pulled out his hands and they were
perfectly manicured.

The next machine had a sign that read, ‘This Machine Provides a 
Service Men Need When Away from Their Wives,

The salesman looked both ways, put 50p in the machine,
unzipped his fly, and with some anticipation, stuck his manhood 
into the opening. When the machine started buzzing, the guy let 
out a shriek of agony and almost passed out. Fifteen seconds 
later it shut off.

With trembling hands, the salesman was able to withdraw his 
tender unit…….. which now had a button sewn neatly on the

Our baby is 10 months old, but for the first month of her life my husband called her “Winston Churchill” because he says that’s who all babies look like. LOL. Seeing her newborn pics and how she looks now,I’m inclined to agree,but she was a stunning Churchill. 🙂
