Eggs

Lying in bed this morning, listening to Radio 4, I heard the presenter talking about farmers who had had problems making a living with cows and, instead 'getting into eggs.' 
"That must be a bit of a squash," I remarked to Keith. Yes, even at 6.30am, the old mind is razor sharp.
"Yes," agreed Keith and then in a Welsh farmer's accent, 
"We didn't have much luck milking them, though."
(I can hear Elder Daughter's groans from here...)

  1. Ha! Ha! ... But - radio at 6.30am? You are retired and should be sleeping late or were the dogs yelping for their morning walk?
