But it's true, I have been thinking and it's you, yes, you, Su and Christina, who are responsible.
Su posted on her views of CHRISTIAN LITERATURE last week which got me thinking .......
I consider myself a fairly eclectic reader in that I'll give must types of literature a go at least once BUT I've never tried Christian fiction OR 'Westerns' (cowboys and Indians as I used to call them). SO, in order to remedy this, I'd like you my dear blogger buddies to suggest books that are Christian fiction or Westerns that I could try - who knows there may even be Christian Westerns out there though I somehow doubt it.
OK, that's Su dealt with, what has Christina done to get me thinking?
Christina posted about HALLOWEEN COSTUMES and which outfit we'd choose - the 'sexy nurse' OR the Sasquatch?
Not quite a Sasquatch but (near enough?) a gorilla, this reminded me of the time Husband dearest got a stern telling off from the local constabulary.
Way back when, when we were younger, fitter and more stupid (?) Hd and I worked at a playscheme for children aged ? to 12 where it wasn't uncommon for Hd to get dressed up (it still isn't but that's a whole other post) and one summer someone (mentioning no names) decided it would be fun for Hd to dress up as said gorilla and chase the children around the local woods.
The result? Several concerned members of the public telephoned the local police station, reporting screaming children and what appeared to be a large (6 foot 3 inch to be exact) creature running amok in the woods. Whoops! Perhaps not one of our better ideas. When found (thankfully no tranquiliser darts were needed), we were given a 'right good' talking to, with the police (totally lacking in any sense of humour) warning that if we ever planned to do such a stunt again we should let them know OR, better still, just not do it.
Anyway, here are just a few examples of Hd in character. Sorry I couldn't find one of him as a gorilla.
As ANDY CAPP (1987ish?) - All that's missing is the cigarette.
As a 'naughty' nun (1980's) - Sick of walking in heels by now Hd had reverted to deck shoes.
As a teddy (Valentine Day disco at the playscheme, 1989) - Hardly a flattering photo of yours truly!
As if this one needs any explanation. (December 1985)
As Death (Halloween disco at the playscheme, 1985).
