Granny’s Thursday blank

Hello All.

Yep…completely blank.
I’ll try not to let it stop me.
Don’t expect too many words of wisdom.
I don’t feel very wise today.

I came to a conclusion on Wednesday.
A real lightbulb moment.
My telephone stands on my desk next to my computer.
Adjacent to my desk is a leather sofa.
It ends to get cluttered with cds and other junk.
What can I say…I am a slob.
It drives Mex crazy.

On Wednesday Mex came back from a walk and found all the junk lying under my desk.
Now …when someones pushes the number of our house, from the entrance to our complex, our phone rings.
Jasmine has learned to associate the phone ringing with visitors.
She,immediately, rushes to the front door with tail wagging.

I tried to phone mex twice on Wednesday.
The damn dog is now trying to answer the phone.

It is a cordless phone.
The size of a mobile phone.
I am going to come home one day and find it in pieces.
Or worse.
She might just have a ringing in her tummy.
Instead of her ears.

Will all vegetarians please refrain from reading the next bit.
That would be Souldipper.
Maybe NR.
You have been warned.

I cooked a tongue for supper last night.
I find them disgusting to cook and peel.
Delicious to eat,though.

And now I have grossed you all out(I know you all read that)…I will get back to work.


  1. Your nothings are pretty interesting.

    • You are too kind Tilly 🙂

  2. I’ve never cooked tongue … does it take ages?

    • Hi Cindy…I guess I boiled it for about an hour and a half.

    • I obeyed your request/command to vegetarians
      I dutifully skipped the last bit . . .
      And scrolled down to see the comments.

      Saw this one
      Had to scroll back up to make sure it was Cow Tongue being boiled and not Mex’s tongue ~ I thought maybe he had piped up about the sloppy sofa.

      Between you and Tilly . . . we covered both ends of the bull.

      • hehe NR…Mex’s tongue is not big enough to bother about!!!

  3. Poor Jasmine trying to answer the phone. They show dogs on the tv that dial the phone. Maybe she could compete. I love the photo of the mist.

    • Good Morning Maire…isn’t it lovely…I just had to stop to take those.

  4. Okay, yes, I’m officially grossed out. But I took another look at those gorgeous photos and they made everything okay again. 🙂

    LOL – can you just imagine hearing the phone ring in Jasmine’s tummy? What a funny image that brings to mind!

    • Morning RD…just to gross you out further…Jasmine loved the rather tough skin with all its dimples. 🙂

  5. i also love tounge (but we won’t tell them)

    • It will be our little secret Sidey!

  6. I LOVE tongue!!! Don’t know how to make it though… 😦 The last picture is my favorite 🙂

    • Hi Liane…so easy…you just boil it until it is tender and then peel off the skin.
      Now I have grossed out people AGAIN!

  7. Granny, have you heard “We are what we eat.” ? Well this cabbage/apple/spring onion has only one response: The tongue you have is just fine! Don’t push it, Girl!!

    • Ooooops Souldipper…I wondered what your reaction was going to be!

  8. I tried not too look. Oh just a little grossed out!

    • Damn Linda…only a little!

  9. TONGUE! yuck yuck errrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr it makes me twitch all over just thinking of it. Almost like a reaction to chalk on blackboard!
    Sorry Granny

    • You don’t have to apologise PIP….it IS delicious though. 🙂

  10. I like the beautiful photos.Tongue- Yuckkkk !!!! No thank you !!!! the thought of it makes me quiver !!!!!!!!!! that’s just as bad as trying to eat fish-when the eyeball is staring back at you !! another Yuckkk !!

    • Hi Penny…I am with you on the eyes thing…I don’t eat anything that looks at me!

  11. […] (2) Granny spoke in tongues . . . making vegetarians (and meat-eaters) gag. […]

    • Bwahahaha…NR…ten out of ten…love your sense of humour.

  12. So, for at least one evening, everything was was really tongue-in-cheek, eh? Is that an expression in SA or does that just sound really weird (instead of really corny … wait, is corny an expression in SA). I know, I’m trying to hard tonight. I’m ticked at my daughter and don’t feel very funny.

    You do write the longest “blank” of anyone I know … or at least, anyone I read.

    • Hmmmmmmm…the longest blank….is that a compliment?
      Yes, we use tongue in cheek and corny.
      At any given time I am ticked off with at least one of my kids!!!
