The Nanny State Defeated and The Army.
Well there I was about to go on a rant about the ban on glass in Glasgow pubs. Oh yes I was furious that our licensing board were expecting us to drink out of plastic cups. I was hopping mad that my Dad discovered a rather effective and simple method of turning a toughened glass pint tumbler into a dagger quite by accident, yet toughened glass was being talked up as a safety measure. Anyway it would appear the council are paying closer attention to this blog than I suspected because they have backed down. Thank the Lord! It would have been nappies next.
It has also come to my attention that David Duff has left another of his army stories in my comments box (see post below). I may be alone in this but I'm a big fan of army stories, so for that reason I'd like to request more from David Duff on his army days and draw everyone's attention to the Universal Soldier who apart from writing a great blog, has had an excellent idea. The idea is very simple to put into practice, all one needs is a forces aerogramme (from the Post Office) addressed to 'A British Soldier In Iraq' with a jaunty letter then wait and see what comes back. Alternatively you can send them an 'e-bluey' . Whichever method, get writing because I'm led to understand it cheers them up immensely.
I'm off now because I'm mourning the death of Middleton, my cat of 17 (human) years. I would be grateful if someone could invent pets that outlive one. That's four I've outlived now and there's no fun in it.
