"Well, there is only one piece of advice I can give you," said the wisest of wise men. "The secret of happiness is to see all the marvels of the world and never to forget the drops of oil on the spoon."

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...)

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

No, I'm usually awake around then. :)

Jennyta said...

Wasn't it, though. ;)

Tell Keith he should have bought a lower milking stool!

Jennyta said...

Ah, so that's the answer!
