Birds, Leps, Observations & Generalities - the images and ramblings of Mark Skevington. Sometimes.

Heard the one about the German, the Greek and the Irishman ....

PP - "Stoat, Stoat you say. Shall one fetch one's gun?"
Barman - "No, no you thick Royal twat. It's Stout. It's a drink."
HRH - "Hmmm, yees. I hear it keeps one regular, though a little solid like black bricks. It's been a long while since I had anything stiff in that department .... not since my Annus horribilis"


A little quieter in the garden last night, not helped by the breeze, a little drizzle and a Robin that beat me to it.
