April fool's day. A ridiculous notion if you ask me which I will have no truck with. Not the best of days today. The phone did ring and it was someone I wanted to hear from, the optician in fact. My glasses had arrived so I popped along and got them, they now sit on the front of my fat face as that really did seem the best place to put them.

Got a text or two from young Mack from the club which was pleasant. I have to admit that people are keeping in touch during this lockdown nonsense and it does help a great deal.

So, new glasses, and I managed to incorporate some shopping into the round trip. The shop I went to was near the post office, and they, it would seem are only letting one or two into the place at the same time, there were about twenty people queuing to get in there which with the two metre rule meant a very long queue. They must have been giving cash away as I can't remember the last time I same that many folk wanting to get in.

And so to finish -

I watched an episode of Australian masterchef, someone made a meringue and everyone cheered, which was odd, as Australians usually boo meringue.

Ho ho ho.

Which dastardly Dick are you referring to? Wink


The famous one of Wacky Races, who went on to try to catch pigeons, had a sidekick named Muttley.

I can't think of another off the top of my head.

Ah, I'm with you. Never heard Nixon referred to as that before but it is obviously where the Richard Milhous came from

I would imagine so, yes, since Nixon predates Dastardly and it's just too much of a coincidence to have two 'dsatardly' Dicks with the same unusual middle name.

Today's effort

Sometimes I use big words that I don't fully understand just to make myself sound more photosynthesis.

Thank you for your attention

I'm green with envy that I didn't think of that one.

Changed my bedding last night, which is always one of life's little treats and was rewarded by sleeping to gone half nine this morning. Combined shopping and exercise to stock up on soup, milk, bread and frozen dinners all paid for by contactless, non disease transmitting payments.

I have a bag of change, it sits on a table in the front room and since Tuesday of last week it has remained literally untouched. I used to use cash in the coffee machine at work, I used it in the canteen, had to, no option. Thursday nights were always cash transactions. Petrol was always cash as the one time I had a card cloned it was at a petrol station. Chippies are cash as were McDonalds.

It was my custom to put copper coins in charity boxes. I wonder how the incomes of charities has been affected now that cash has become so unloved.

I think, and hope actually, that the end of cash is nigh.

My guess is charities in general have benefitted from the digital age. I see birthday fundraisers all the time on Facebook. There’s always some fundraiser or another doing well on social media platforms I use.
I could be wrong of course, I often am

That would surely mean the end of the brown envelope. That will ensure its existence for ever in my view.

Just finished reading Fleming's Casino Royale, not bad but not overly good either. Interesting to compare it with the films.

However one sentence did stand out like a lighthouse on a dark night. Here it is -

"Then he lit his seventieth cigarette of the day and sat down at the writing table with the thick wad of his stake money and winnings beside him and entered some figures in a small note book."

The fact that it was his seventieth cigarette makes that a stand out sentence, but isn't that a very strange start to a sentence ? It looks it to me but my knowledge of s**t like this is very restricted.

The sentence before it ended ".....Bond undressed and took a cold shower" if that helps.

Am I making mountains out of molehills or could I just be correct, for possibly, the first time in my entire life, on matters concerning language ?

After two week of doing bugger all and a rather severe change of diet I am now 131 kilos or 289 pounds. Last I recall I was a shade over 300, so close to a stone gone and little or none of it will be fat cos your body loves that stuff

I'm a big fan of cash and use it for 99% of transactions. I realise this makes me unusual in this day and age, but I intend to hang onto this style of exchange for as long as possible. I like going out with a bag of coins Happy
Electronic exchange is open to fraud/crime, system failure and tracking/monitoring. I'm not tech savvy enough to have confidence in the security of it all.

the last line of your post had me in stitches, so true especially as we get older.
