Stuff I Haven’t done….

Ihave been distracted this week and have nothing to show for my distraction. I have no idea what I have done this week other than buy a horizontal arm for my tripod – no one should be without one in my opinion.

Anyhow, with this in mind I have written a list of 10 things I didn’t manage to do in the last 7 days. I didn’t:-

  1. Buy Greenland
  2. Charter a private jet to annoy environmentalists
  3. Visit my blog friends
  4. Use a river as an open sewer [I have a septic tank]
  5. Get a surprise from a high jumping dolphin
  6. Encounter french resistance
  7. Drink a mug of gravy
  8. Start a feud with Denmark
  9. Finish my collage alphabet
  10. Get a surprise from a smoking kipper

So I have been dull, dull, dull! Just look what everybody else is doing! Maybe I should retitle this list as: Things To Do Next Week, now there’s a plan.

    Well! I don’t quite know what to say. Oh, wait! Yes, I do. At least on the Greenland thing…I have already warned intended buyers that the navies of Denmark and Canada share duties on that island https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hans_Island and http://mentalfloss.com/article/545928/worlds-friendliest-territorial-dispute-could-finally-be-over any intending “buyer/ invader” might find him/herself up against Vikings AND Mounties.
    But it is good to see that you are up and about.

    Also… would a tripod not need 3 horizontal bars? Or have I had a little too much Old Lady Beverage?

    Now I feel too much sympathy for you to tell you off but really, Greenland is going for a song I understand and will hardly put a dent in your loose change! As for chartering a private jet, you can borrow mine for free as soon as I am rich enough to buy a diesel burning super-jet complete with oversized cinema and an inexhaustible supply of sausage rolls 🙂

      Mr Ducks – Thank you, indeed when we are all millionaires we can share everything! You may have use of my boating lake, which in a previous lifetime would have been fondly referred to as the Atlantic.

    By a curious coincidence I haven’t done any of those things either – I was surprised by a plum-eating fox, but that, by now, is old news. If environmentally hostile air transport is what’s needed you know you’re welcome to borrow the old Zeppelin. Surprised you didn’t ask, actually. It hasn’t been out for a spin for a while so it’ll probably need pumping up a bit, mind.

      Mr Batarde – Foxes like blackberries too, hence the purple stained poos they leave everywhere.
      A Zeppelin you say? Aren’t they a bit slow, and something of a fire hazard?

      We should go one better, Jon, and buy a planet. Maybe Mars? Who owns Mars? Who do we have to pay? We’ll show Elton who the Rocket Man/Woman really is.

        Hands off Mars – this stoned Musk fellow wants to nuke (!) it. At least he sells t-shirts with this slogan. But a guy who shoots a damn car into space is capable of anything.
        BTW I insist, nobody needs to buy that “green” land, just invade it and all will be fine.

        Mr Mags – Yep, Mars is a little long-haul. Maybe I’ll stay home and eat a Mars bar instead. Let’s not invade. Invading countries/planets is getting a little passé.

    I don’t have a tripod. At least not that I know, there are some areas that have not been look at for years. Do I need a tripod?
    I enjoyed your list. You might save money if you just invaded Greenland. You could then strike off #1 and #8 if your invasion was successful. I believe the Vikings did it once.

      You probably don’t need a tripod, Bill. I probably didn’t need a tripod, but convinced myself I did.
      It appears that no one is finding the gravy, dolphins or kippers the least bit interesting… so far.

      P.S I’m fine with not discussing rivers as open sewers. French resistance, anyone?

        Bill – So many old films referred to people running away to join the Foreign Legion, which gave the idea a glint of glamour.

      The Mistress MJ – I have heard on the grapevine that Cafe C has expanded to a neighbouring public establishment, and quite possibly will be making a bid for Greenland, thus providing surprised kippers and dolphins to wider audience.

    Life isn’t complete without having a feud with Denmark. I wrote to the Danish Prime Minister to say Denmark was directly responsible for my nervous breakdown, insomnia and eating disorder. But she replied that Denmark accepted no liability for my personal conditions and if I tried to set foot in the country I would be refused entry. It’s developing into a very promising cause celebre.

      Nick – I think I might put in an offer for Denmark and the chattels that go with it. If I buy Norway as well, do you think I’ll get Sweden for free?

    Many years ago my mother went on a cruise from Southampton to New York via Greenland. I remember asking her about Greenland and not one to mince her words, she said it was a dump, the natives looked like savages and there wasn’t a M&S there. If that isn’t a good reason to withdraw your offer to buy Greenland I don’t know what is! Purchase somewhere closer to home like Stornoway or Lerwick.

      Mitzi – Apologies for my tardy response, I have been feeling unwell, possibly due to my kipper not being surprised enough. Anyhow, I agree with your mother – no M&S means no knickers, and I think Greenland will be too chilly for that sort of experience, so I will instead be making an offer for the Isle of Wight – they have one in the Newport area.
