Moreidlethoughts Weblog

humour,art,gardens, books and whatever idle thoughts float through my mind (it's a very draughty mind.)



I know all the well-organised people will have written and sent their “wish lists” weeks ago. I am NOT well-organised. And my personal wish list is pretty much a static, recycled affair: good health, workmen who turn up on time, shoes in my size when I’m shopping for shoes. Simple stuff, really.

But having had to negotiate crowded roads , overcrowded carparks and very rude and stupid drivers in the lead-up to the holiday…. I am herewith revising that list. I’ll even settle for tardy workmen if I can have this …

I want a set of wicked wheels.
You know – hubcaps with a spur.
Like that racing chariot
Steven Boyd drove in “Ben Hur.”
Then, next time someone cuts me off
He wont just earn my ire__
I’ll carve my *^#$^** initials
In the white wall of his tyre!

Thank you, Santa.
That’s all for today, people. Hunger and thirst and sundry domestic duties call me from my post. (posts?) I’ll be back in a while.
In the meantime, if this is your last shuffle through the blogs before Christmas, I wish you a very happy and safe holiday.
By the way, Blogger has me confused again, just when I thought all that Beta nonsense was sorted… the technowotsits, bless their little nerdy hearts, attempted to explain their actions with an analogy. Lorne Greene and something that sounds like Ronald Reagan’s military wish list. Please, people, some of us are so old we still think Lorne Greene runs that ranch out in the West where the living was best. (Oh, gawd! Now I suppose I’ll have to explain that for the benefit of the youngsters.)

  1. Thanks for the grin, Dinahmow. Have a fun and disorganised holiday and (eek) I’m old enough to get the Lorne Greene reference…


  2. I loved the wicked wheels poem! 🙂 Made me chuckle out loud.

    And thanks for the Norman Rockwell comparison – I know what you’re saying. And actually my philosophy is similar to his – I like to paint things the way I think life *ought* to be…

    I think of him often.


  3. I do remember the chariot with the Spurs, my that will be something on a card. In fact I have seen similar contraptions in the US. Merry Christmas.

  5. btw that was the melody from Bonanza…just in case you haven’t had as much Nog as I have…
