"AH DUNNO!" - 21st February

After a three-hour "mot" and overhaul by the burrow's large - very large! - computer wizard, the desktop is back in full service.

anticant had more good news from his latest hospital check-up, and doesn't have to return there for six weeks.

With Easter looming, anticant and ben have been consoling themselves with hot-cross buns. The beadle is hot and cross, after stoking the boiler and polishing up the handle on the big front door - so watch out, Zola!

Morning, Anticant. Have a splendid day.

zola said...

Good morning Scantypants.
Put that beadle to fast.
he needs to lose weight anyway.
Starve the chap into salvation I say.

Richard W. Symonds said...

Make plans for the greatest Easter ever...

lavenderblue said...

Such good news Anticant !
Happy for you..........
Will you be hiding eggs for us in the
Snug.......?

The Burrow Beadle said...

Mr Zola, sir, without me this place would be a muckheap. Wear myself to the bone I do keeping it spick and span. Mr anticant is always saying "I don't know where we'd be without you, Flarge". He and Mr ben couldn't keep it shipshape, that's for sure. Far too busy with their heads in the clouds, or books - same thing. So please don't be mean to a poor hardworking beadle.

zola said...

I will not.
Of course three heads are better than one but what if a person had 4 heads?
Who is to balance out the wicked beadle?

Do you suffer from the will nots?
I do.
They are those little bits of left overs that stick to the nether regions. Even with the best Izal wipes ( even with castor oil) those little tough bits "will not" go away as they say.

I suspect that our resident Beadle suffers from "will nots" just like all of us hairy mails.

Well, I like Easter......eggs and the start of Spring.
Hope.
especially for Anticant.

"I wandered lonely as a cloud...when all at once I saw a crowd, a host of golden daffodils !"

Well, not quite yet - but any day soon.

(Hat-tip : Wordsworth)

lavenderblue said...

Hi Richard....
I find it so sad, so unnecessary that a host of would-be daffodils have been torn up and ruined round here
Why oh why oh why ?

the burrow beadle said...

Anybody tearing up daffodils in the vicinity of the burrow WILL NOT be tolerated!

By Order

lavenderblue said...

Agreed.
Unbelievable, pathetic vandalism.

I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vale and jungle
When all at once I saw a crowd
A host of golden daffodungles

Anonymous said...

Should that be a DOSE of daffodungles?

trousers said...

No

zola said...

Might that be a dose ..... ?

trousers said...

?

ben trovato said...

What are these 'hairy mails' Zola speaks of? Is it so cold up there that even the letters arrive in fur-lined envelopes?

Here at the burrow daffodils, bluebells and crocuses are well on the way and should be popping up any day now.....

the burrow beadle said...

And it's snug in the Snug. Doubles all round on the house.

By Order

lavenderblue said...

Oooh, Mr.Beadle I love you !
wish It was snug here..........
i have cornflowers in bloom and helleborus....

zola said...

If that beadle does not watch his step he will have hot crosses on his buns like never before.
bribes now is it?
Whatever happened to decent behaviour?
