  • I really needed an electric hoist so that I could transfer from one chair to another ( to my standing chair or iBot ) Because I just don’t have room for all these bloody chairs in my flat, they have to be o […]

  • Thanks for the interest in my tooth, readers ( all 6 of you ). Comments have varied from ‘ what a beautiful tooth ‘ from my mum, to ‘ Christ your breath must have stunk ‘ …

    For the record then, that black s […]

    Dramatic scenes in Brentford then when someone left the plug out of the canal, and most of the water disappeared, leaving the boats on the mud..

    Actually what happened was the ( probably ancient ) chain […]

  • Someone sent me this romantic picture.

    I think this fella must have been to the dentist and had a tooth pulled?

    Just mentioned to Wendy that I’ve always had a bit of a thing for Beyoncé.

    “Whatever floats your boat”. She said.

    “No” I said, “that’s buoyancy”.

    Tired of your feet turning into blocks of ice because you can’t move or feel them? Wear a snug around your legs in your chair, connect a night bag pee bag to your c […]

    I talked to a mate of mine yesterday on the phone. I hadn’t seen him since I was Best Man at my other buddy’s wedding ( me pre injury ). We raced together in the Andes and the Himalayas once upon a time. I cal […]

    It’s odd I think. What is it about the world that facts are underplayed, particularly when it comes to disabilities? I’d googled Edwyn Collins and found out about his 2 strokes and his speech problems. The inf […]

    • Well in that case it was either edited, or he’s got far worse.
      Both unfortunate, for sure.

  • Going to see Edwyn Collins tonight. He had a MASSIVE hit with a song called Girl Like You, that just about everyone will recognise.

    Interesting fella – he suffered 2 strokes when he was in his late 30’s and t […]

  • I’m trying to adjust to the novelty of my life having become ‘ stable’. For 6 years it was chaotic, with unforeseen complications and disasters seemingly around every corner. I became understandably pessi […]

  • It’s actually quite difficult to write about the cases I saw without giving away my thoughts about the offences that had been committed ( and they were all ( found ) guilty ). Now I see why journalists just f […]

    • I know… ! It’s a lot! Wimbledon. That’s what they said though. If you wanna get looked after, marry a perverted gardener, then divorce him, is the moral of the story?!

    • Really? Well I never!

    • It must have been a true Dawky session ie upside-down. Reminiscent of UWIST RFC v Bristol Poly (a), Beer Keller Affair ?!

  • Russ wrote a new post, Mighty.. 2 weeks, 2 days ago

    When I wrote about my nephew ‘ ejecting’ a German fella from a bar, after the chap had tried to push his brother around, I said that he’d picked the fella up and threw him outside.

    Picking someone up isn’t […]

  • Russ wrote a new post, Courting 3 weeks ago

    Today I hope to get to Magistrates Court again. I’ve tried and failed a few times since the last visit, but today I reckon I’ll make it. Who knows what I’ll see there. I’ve been told that the Crown Courts are mor […]

  • After my injury, and everything changed for me, I felt very uncomfortable being on my own. In fact I couldn’t bear it. I’d get scared too, the awareness of being so vulnerable and unable just being too much for […]

  • Russ wrote a new post, Gisela 4 weeks ago

    I met up with a lady I used to work with, when I was 22/23. I haven’t seen her since then actually. She’s called Gisela and is from Venezuela. She’s a lovely lady, and her English now is far better than it was b […]

  • A golfer stands over his tee shot for what seems an eternity: looking up, looking down, measuring the distance, figuring the wind direction and speed. Finally his exasperated partner says, “What’s taking so […]

    And today is my birthday

    All birthday 🎁 s gratefully received obviously.

    Lovely to have spent last night with some very close friends, Wendy. and my daughter, Lily. It’s been a mixed week, with good […]

    • Happy Birthday Russ and congratulations to your daughter, you must be very proud. xx

    • Dawky,

      In my experience, the study of English Literature & Physics at ‘A’ level is unprecedented. This demonstrates academic versatility and I’m amazed that the Admissions’ Tutor has failed to take this fully into account.

    • Ha! I won’t rise to that !!!! 😂🦜

  • Russ wrote a new post, Today. 1 month ago

    …. is A level results day.

    If you or someone you know didn’t quite get what they wanted, then they can take solace in this. People do get on in life without having great academic records…

  • I was sleepy all day yesterday. I kept uncharacteristically yawning, and by 6.30 I just wanted to go to sleep. I got helped into bed, tried to stay awake but gave up by 8.30 and was asleep.

    I woke up at […]

      Hi Paul.
      Sure – for me Ciproflaxin ( or one of the derivatives of that ) kills it every time.
