Childhood Reminiscence

Visible to anyone in the world
Edited by Richard Walker, Sunday, 26 Mar 2017, 23:34
Where I was brought up in the fens (I can smell the water-mint again now) it was very wet and marshy. People made a living, fishing, fowling, and peat-digging. In the winter there was a lot of flooding and homes were very cold and dank, so we eat a lot, for comfort and insulation. As a result most of us had quite generous waistlines.

Some of our relatives didn't like the life and moved from the meres and wetlands to higher and drier ground. There, no longer needing a high calorific intake, and influenced by different role models, they usually became more slender; even svelte in some instances.

We always referred to them as thin kin outside the bogs.

I had a business teaching Origami. But it folded when I didn't keep up with the paperwork.

Seriously though, I was the victim of a stick-up this week. I was held up at gum point.

Bit of an up-and-down week really. I've been on a Bungy Jumping trip.

There's a new website that advises executives who have personal problems. It's called "Management consult aunts".

I believe it's a beaver I perceive,

And not an otter, which is otterly different.

Have you ever wondered why we eat so much tinned food? It's because we can.

Our local handyman has no idea how to stick things together. He's utterly glueless.

Gran always wore the traditional shawl, apron, and stovepipe hat. Her emotionless wooden face was typical of a Welsh dresser.

On the day of the grammar exam, I knew I'd be asked about the Past, Present and Future. I felt all tensed up.
