Painful day.


This came from 'Punch', which was supposed to be funny but wasn't very. In a way it's one of only two or three memorable jokes it produced in about 150 years.

However, it does describe my day;


Vicar's wife: Now that you can't get about and are not able to read, how do you manage to occupy the time?

Rustic man: Well, mam, sometimes I sits and thinks and then again sometimes I just sits.

By Gunning-King, 24 October 1906, Volume 131, page 297.

Oh well, at least I kept my sense of humour.

I've been resting my back (which hurts) in the hope it may start to heal up a bit.
