What’s he getting up to now

scarpering away like that, the

Nine Geek muses I recall and

Thalia in particular, he liked.


Is he on a hike somewhere or

laid back on a chair and having

a word with him upstairs, given

the state of international affairs


Or is he in the outback ghostly

and serene – having a welcome

Latte at a coffee bar at Pilgrim’s

rest, flicking away the pesky flies

looking for his mislaid digeridoo

Earl Grey... Are there any other types of tea?.

Paraphrasing here

Brian your comment MUST take the biscuit mate.

Philipos great title btw lost on the majority good job we don't 'just' cater for those old pals.

While on WOL
We honed our art
Thale and I
We'll never part

(Thanks to Philipos)

Now we live
At Bloggers Vale
Plenty hills
Plenty dales

Haven't seen Fair Dinkum Lane yet.....

Hello? Thale's just come in with some Anzac biscuits. Must be an Aussie shop round the corner. Visitors can now have Earl Grey and Anzacs. Do they go together Thale? She's nodding.......

Well I'll be buggered. Someone's actually missing us....

Thale and I have settled in quite nicely into our pad at Bloggers Vale and slowly making friends with the neighbours . Come and visit us any time. Sorry can't offer tea and bikkies. Thale hasn't stocked the cupboards yet
