Rabbits - Bury, colony, nest or warren

I saw four rabbits on the grasslands on the way into work this morning, all in one clump*, they were still and looked happy, this was however 6:30 and the storm of the night had passed. They were probably relaxing before the heat of the day. I wish them well but really, fur coats in this weather ?

* I seriously doubt that this is the correct collective noun for rabbits but it does seem suitable. I will consult the Guinness book of answers later and take its advice.

I wonder if hares have the same collective noun as rabbits. I reckon they should as I can never tell the buggers apart. I am assuming that the beasties I saw this morning were rabbits and not hares, but I would not put money on it.

40? I made it 33! Are you a machine?


Naw, I wouldn't say that. Just have the ability (if that is the right word) to just keep going. Just plough straight on.

A body remains at rest until acting on by an external force, that force was the need to earn money. Once earning I continued in a straight line until acted on by another external force, that additional external force has yet to appear :-)

Avoid external forces :-) but I never even had to do that as they seem to avoid me

Tonight I weighed 132.5 kilos which is over half a stone under three hundred pounds.

Tomorrow I will have been in my current employment for forty years to the day.

A sense of meaning? I get it for you and other folk. I meditate. Do you?
There’s water on the moon! What will happen when life on earth ends? Will I be tortured for killing a fly that was in my home? Too much thinking is bad I guess? Answers and research is the only way I think?


I don't meditate, never tried, never really understood what it is supposed to do.
You won't be tortured for anything, your heart is pure so you are allowed to kill the occasional critter.

There is a marvelous story my Neil Gaiman, see link above, with one of the best opening lines I can remember, but it's just a story

Not depressing at all Billy. I am acutely aware of many such instances, where people have a ball for six to twelve months and then seem to decline and wither away. Some manage it and some seem to thrive on it. The main trick seems to be to keep busy but if that is the case why not keep working, maybe on reduced hours but a sense of meaning seems to be the key.

Soon you'll be on Holiday permanently, no? Happy


Probably three to four years. State pension kicks in at 66, so I will probably wait for that. I seem to recall there are financial benefits to working one or two extra years (aside from the extra salary). There is always the possibility that something unforeseen more force me to go earlier but I doubt that.

Holidays are in my view a break from your normal routine, so retirement isn't a holiday, it becomes your new routine and that, to me, makes a huge difference. I don't get bored, but the feeling that I am not doing anything constructive would be an issue, and if you are going to do something constructive, why not keep working and at least get paid for it.

My brother retired a couple of years back, he was looking forward to it and is enjoying it immensely. Sadly, as far as retirement goes, I am not my brother, I expect a far stormier transition. I could be very wrong, I hope I am. But I have always been a creature of habit and have disliked change.

For a long time it has been so far away that I needn't think about it, but now it looms large, maybe I should start, but I do find it a surprisingly difficult thing to do.

So the holiday is over, just the weekend to go now and then back to work on Monday. It has been fun, I really must do it again sometime.

Friday, 19th July, arrive 14:00

Holiday, day five.

Early arrival today as jujitsu guy has an early start and an early dart for work related reasons, so I was there to cheer him to a new pb of a squat triple of 150. Hoorah for him.

Then I watched young Mack snatch yet another club record of 152.5 for the third time in three weeks

About half way through the tbar stuff the rain started to hammer down and it was noticed that the guttering was overflowing at a certain point, so I grabbed a ladder and investigated, part of the guttering has dropped and so that section filled with water and overflowed, part way through this investigation I managed to tip the contents of the gutter down myself, particularly in the stomach, thigh and foot regions. Yeah me. Oaf !

Socks dry very slowly

Thursday, 18th July

Day four of the holiday. Watched a few episodes of "Year of the Rabbit" starring Matt Berry who is probably best known as "Toast of London"

It is quite amusing but there was one line shouted by a newspaper seller in an early episode, it started "Horrible Murders" and one would normally expect this to be followed by the traditional "read all about it" but in this case it was followed by "f**king pictures and everything"

Laugh !! I had to pause it for about ten minutes until I had recovered my dignity and dried my eyes.

It being Thursday usual traditions will be observed and I will receive a knock on my door later tonight, this was arranged some days ago but I did ring up around dinnertime to confirm the appointment. The receptionist was a stunningly attractive (and I do mean stunning) who also does "field work" so to speak. As this is a holiday I asked if she would be available for a visit over the weekend to cheer me somewhat before my return to work.

She informed me that Sunday would be ideal, on a whim I asked her if she possessed a hat.
"What kind of hat?" she enquired
"A big summery, floppy kind of thing" I suggested
"Not sure" she replied, "I do have a trilby"
A TRILBY !!!!! Oh sweet mother of all that is good and pure
"Would you bring it?" I asked as nonchalantly as I could
"With pleasure" she replied with a voice laced with mischief

I composed myself for the second time today.

I like hats. Don't ask me why. But I do, and when worn by stunning, near naked beauties, I like them a lot.
