I've been wearing a condom each night when it is stormy. Always prepared in case the worst happens in the middle of the night! Now wondering if I should wear a hard hat too.

If my house should collapse the local paper would report what I was wearing when the emergency services pulled me out of the rubble. My street cred would go through the ex-roof and there would be scandal as the identity of the missing femme fatale was speculated upon!

Or maybe everyone would say "We knew he was weird"!

Hey up.

When we came up North Portugal a couple of days ago it was horrendous weather.. All the trees well those that haven't blown over have had the bark stripped off them, bark is piled up at the side of the roads in the woody stretches.

Now that was windy, I had to get up in the middle of the night to turn the van round so it was face on to the storm..

ray.

Just watching a shifty looking geezer in the library searching intently through the 'S' section of the dictionary, he's stopped now.

I think he's up to something. . .. . . ray......

Should be good for woodburner sales. Every cloud etc!


P.S. Shame you didn't find Bieber himself nailed to that tree!
