Watching Blues Brothers tonight in Aretha Franklin scene and I say:
“I bet that bloke at the back is really playing that trumpet and he hardly gets notice.
Mark: Playing what?
Me: oh the trombone
Mark: the what?
Me: A saxophone …?
Bingo. Third time lucky. All hail to Lou Marini for teaching me my instruments!
Me: Mark. You will have a missed call from me. Just ignore it
Me: Mark I rang you accidentally
Me; Mark. Mark. Did you hear me?
Mark: Yes. You told me to ignore you
Staying at a friends in Lincolnshire and walking her dog Bella today. I forgot the tennis ball and the call back treats but remembered the poo bags (lovely!) Luckily she found a tennis ball in the undergrowth en-route and I have never seen a dog looked so pleased. She dropped it at my feet, I threw it, she nudged it with her nose …. straight through a slatted fence into the playground of a school. So ensued me trying to explain to a dog that I could not retrieve said ball and eventually we were on our way. On the way back I had a eureka moment – find a stick. Stick found, I tried to fish the ball towards the fence, but each time I did, Bella in her excitement to get it – nudged it back in. Eventually we were on the same hymn sheet. My coat is covered in green slime from said fence, my white boots covered in mud, but Bella is happy. Not sure if the ditzy one is me or her!
Mark: well at least it’s warmed up a bit now, it’s 3 degrees
Me (trying to make a joke):
Where’s Diana Ross then?
Mark: I don’t know but she was never with the 3 degrees
Watching tv tonight with Mark I was excited to see an old yellow mini.
“I used to have a mini like that”
Mark: Sure its not a maxi?
Me: Oh ok. I used to have a mini that colour and a blue maxi
Mark: No. It was a mini, I was making a joke about size
Doh! Fell for it again
