KNOCK, KNOCK.  WHO’S THERE?  AN UNEXPECTED AND UNINVITED GUEST.  OH AREN’T WE LUCKY.

THE VISIT

I’m sitting here listening to a pointless conversation.  Maybe not pointless to the ppl holding same.  But as this is the room my computer is in, I haven’t much choice. 

This won’t make much sense unless I explain.

In spite of being asked and then told a long time ago, there is this very well meaning old family friend and neighbor who still just, pops in.  Totally unexpected.

I have asked her in the past to please call first, as our situation here is no longer what it once was.  Naturally, the wife has to be sociable and offer tea.
And naturally, this idiot accepts and she’s been here almost an hour now.

So I’m sitting here being quite obvious by looking at the clock every now and then.  But our visitor just will not take the hint and go.

Our unexpected guest looks just exactly like the late Harpo Marx.  Who I never thought was funny btw.

She has ovarian cancer and somehow has managed to beat the damn thing and of course everyone feels sorry for her.  Except me I guess.  By beating the damn thing I don’t mean she shook it off. No. She has been taking courses of chemotherapy, has had operations and I owe her credit for being a fighter.  She was told she was dead over a year ago.

The thing is, the stupid cow does not listen to anything you try and tell her.
If I inform her that my wife really shouldn’t try walking this late and in this weather due to her arthritis, this old cow shrugs it off saying everyone needs exercise.  Oh well, at least she looks like she’s making ready to leave.  At last.  I think.  OK, ready, set , ?  No?

At least I got her to stop giving us huge flower arrangements.  I don’t know if she still does this but, she has a great eye for arrangements of flowers and once was doing the flower displays for Winchester Cathedral. And they do not let just anyone do that.  So, she had access to tons of flowers.  Which she felt compelled to share.  And it never mattered to her if you really didn’t want them.


Once, she brought over this huge display, it was beautiful, it also came off a casket after a funeral.

It was only after complaining a lot and explaining that all that flower stuff was causing more work for us, that she finally, after about a year, got the hint.
Wait. What hint.  I used to flat out tell her.  Hey,PLEASE, no more flowers.
But she ignored the request for a long time.  What do ya do with ppl like that?
Especially as she has been a very close friend for 40 years to the mil and by extension, the wife too.

The thing with people like that is, and I’m convinced of this, they aren’t bringing flowers (sometimes food we’ve had to throw away) for the people on the receiving end.  Oh no.

It’s done I believe to increase their own self esteem.  Look what good deed I’ve done today.  And unasked for as well.  Aren’t I just the cat’s whiskers?

WELL NO YOU ARE NOT. You are an extremely obnoxious, self aggrandizing egocentric know it all. You have a very shrill and annoying laugh as well.

Please just go away.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
