We live so fast I can't even finish this sent...


Dabbsy in a local park on New Year's Day!

Hold on: Dabbsy was in a local public park on New Year's Day!

Is it because:

- he did not party on New Year's Eve?

- he did party too hard on New Year's Eve?

- he celebrated the New Year there?

- he slept there? Did Mrs. Dabbs turf him out of the house?

Re: only .22?!?

The one time I used freshly felled pine as a bullet back stop for target practice using .22lr the projectiles penetrated 55-60 cm into the fresh pine wood.

That was a single-shot .22lr rifle with something like a barrel length of 50 cm - 60 cm from 50 m away from target.

Makes you think.

Why are sat-nav walking directions always so hopeless?

I am not familiar with medieval measuring units ...


I just wrote at work:


And the term "handy" for a mobile as it used in Germany was coined by the Saxons: when the Berlin Wall fell, most of them saw a mobile for the first time which they recognized as phone but were missing the phone cable.

So they asked: "Häm die kein Schnur?"

Are mixing up "infrequent" with "incontinent"?
