Morning, People

I've just been taking a trot around the US forum recommended by Bellow and found this!

skip, skip, skip!!

Hey, when I got back to The Sty this morning I found a parcel, and when I opened it there was a wellington boot and a little dangly chain, labelled "toys for Wee Piglet". I've been having a great time with them :)

I hope I won't lose them, though, because if I do then there's apparently a risk that I might start fighting and nipping people!

Perhaps I should practise?

Piglet - I've got no idea what you're on but please send me some.

Piglet - did you get the cricket bat as well? Careful with the rubber on the handle...

Piglet - your find is so good I had to snip it out...here's Billow's post on the American RW site:

There is another Runners World website for the UK, which has its own Runners World magazine. The website is www.runnersworld.co.uk. I had fun reading it too, but it has been a while since I have tuned in because of what happened when a runner who is over 60 suggested that they start a section for runners over 60, or something like here where we have this section for Masters (there called Veterans). I thought this was a fine suggestion, but you should have read the replies! It was extremely depressing. I could not even finish reading the many, many pages. Many of the responses were from an ape. What I mean is that there most messages come with a photograph chosen to represent the one who sends it, and some have their own photo and some pick some other symbolic photograph. This one had an ape photograph, and was extremely derogatory about the idea of old geezers doing anything. Obviously he was quite young in age as well as mental development, but the worst thing was that the responses of the older ones were embarrassed and had an apologetic note, self-deprecating about sagging bodies or so on, very humiliating indeed. It was gross and I have not gone back there since. I wanted to write in there and tell the serious ones to come onto this website and take heart, but at that time I hadn't had the courage or knowhow to write into these things. It must have been about two weeks ago or during the first week in December or so. Reading it was very discouraging and even the idea of going back there gives me the creeps, but maybe I should.

Oh dear. And I was nearly convinced that some Americans COULD get irony.
30/01/2003 at 12:13
Hello Glenn :) Where've you been?

meerkat - there was no bat, and I was hoping for a doll too. Ah, well - maybe in the second post?

<piglet smiles shyly> Would you like a kick of my welly?
30/01/2003 at 12:14
Yes, it's quite unbelievable isn't it! :-)

hehheh hee hee hee hee hee!!!

What was that about Americans not understanding irony? :-)

Everybody should buy something JJ. It's our best chance to invest for another 11 years or so.

And yes, I did sell all my equities at the top of the market in February 2001, thank you for asking.
30/01/2003 at 12:17
Ah, it's welly licking that does it! Can they be new ones or will I have to acquire a used pair?
30/01/2003 at 12:20
Well, Glenn, I like them both old and new, but it's fair to say that the Grauniad article suggests that the smell of dung may be part of the attraction :)

<< biff kick dribble kick >>
Thanks, Piglet. Nice bit of cross training. Here, I've brought the wheels from a model fire engine.
