62 is a dodgy old age


Much lack of warm, even more skywater, just as much atmospheric movement and I haven't seen dawn's crack for days.
Returned from the stale bread, gruel and his Maj's food run dahn Tesco, got there before seven of the am-bloody mayhem, lunatics all over the place scooping shelf loads of Crimbo stuff into their  overloaded trolleys, blocking all the aisles and wandering around like zombies gazing into space.

What with that and the multitude of internet robots dressed in their "Onesies" creeping about and chatting in some foreign language it was not a pleasant experience.
Anyway, back to the heading, nature has not been good to poor old Angus, the elbow is still more than a bit painful, the old arteries are more than a bit clogged up and it seems that type 2 diabetes has taken hold.

Orf  to Grimly Dark 'Orspital on the 8th of January to have the tubes reamed out (oh joy), and am on so many tablets that I don't know if I am punched or bored, but I am feeling a bit better.
On the good side his Maj is blooming, he is now a big lad and is still just as batty.

Many sorries to all readers and commenter's who have bothered to keep visiting, and not received a reply or a new post, once Crimbo is over I may begin blogging again.

 So here's a Happy Crimbo to All and Sundry, wishing you good health and much luck of the good kind in the coming year.

Well you old fart, it's about time we heard from you. I have been scanning the obituries in the hope of not finding you.

Gonna have to stop this stale bread thingy now you're a Diabetic and maybe join us 'low carbers' to sustain life instead of improving Pharma's bottom line as you will no doubt entreated to do.

Like you, I have been absent from blogging for some time due to a long term illness and a bit of 'can't be arsed syndrome' but I'm pleased to relate some success, after having more side effects than I could list from the drugs the 'witch doctor' prescribed. As you no doubt know its difficult when you are up to your arse in crocodiles, that the original goal was to cross the swamp.

Keep us informed, quite a few of us seem to care, although God knows why, but we do.

Mucky buckets Petr, like Blackdog I have had a lot of the can't be arsed thingy, but I feel a few posts coming on-that's if Grimly Dark doesn't kill me first...

Still here old friend, the general medic has been very good and the stuff I am on doesn't seem to have any side effects (after a month or so), he keeps telling me how expensive it all is-I keep telling him that after paying tens of thousands of squids in baccy tax it is about time I claimed some back, glad to hear you are on the mend as well.

Welcome back Angus you old wreck. I'm sorry to hear you are still some way from being 100%, but who is at our age? Not me that's for sure, but hey ho.

A few of your unique blog posts every now and then will help cheer us all up.

Anyway, have a merry Christmas and a much better New year.
