Happy Christmas to all my goy friends and Best Wishes for the New Year!


I coudn’t resist showing you all this verse my friend gave me and hope it makes you smile.


Botox and nose drops and needles for knitting,
Walkers and handrails and new dental fittings,
Bundles of magazines tied up with string,
These are a few of my favourite things.
Wrinkles and cataracts, hearing aids, bus passes,
Polident and Fixodent and false teeth in glasses,
Pacemakers, stair lifts and always farting,
These are a few of my favourite things.
Coffee and crumpets and corn pads and bunions,
No spicy hot food or food cooked with onions,
Bathrobes and slippers and biscuits they bring,
These are a few of my favourite things.
When the pipes leak, when the bones creak, When the knees go bad,

It is even funnier if you sing it!!

Rose I never thought that I would finally be living the song but BAM! At this point in my life it’s all there! Might I add my own song that I sing daily from Mary Poppins.....A spoonful of Bourbon helps the medicine go down....well, maybe I sing that more than once a day...Best wishes to you and yours for the New Year!
