One man's meat....

I’ve started eating meat again but have always been leery of the strange looking bits. So whilst at the beach I indiscriminately tossed over my shoulder (as one does) a piece of suspicious looking turkey. Much to my amusement, said piece of suspicion went zooming in reverse and slapped into the unlikely target behind me!

can't really understand the title of this post.
Is it related to the one man's canoe? (which, by the way is a six men)

Nice shot, BTW!

hilarious! I am the same with milk. If there is even a hint of it going off, I am pouring it down the sink. Ulli on the other hand is chugging away without a care.... then will wind me up and say "uhh I think I'm getting a stomach ache" watch me launch into "I told you so" and then crack up laughing!

a question - what is the disabled sign doing next to word verification???

Meesh, I asked that question blogs ago and only got a stupid answer from my daughter about curiosity killing the cat (that means she doesn't know why there is a disabled person at the verification site).
That piece of turkey Child could have fed a family of seven before the War. Actually it looks like a flying pig to me.

Plus, turkey is not meat - what you need is beef and Yorkshires - that's what you'll get when you come home :-) At the pub of course.

GP: Thanks-it was a big target!

Meesh: If you click the disbaled chap you hear a list of numbers (not the letters showing) and if you type the numbers it lets you complete the verification step. It's for the visually impaired.....which seems a little odd?!

Mater70: You're right on all accounts! That was a stalling tactic on my end and a child could have been fed instead of a lucky Kanaha dog hit the poultry jackpot!

GP I've been absent for a couple of days and cannot undeerstand your comment about the canoe - two opposing cultures here obviously.
Can you not see it's a bit of Sharon's discarded lunch on the hull of a boat? That girl will do anything to avoid eating "meat" but Sharon, turkey is poultry not red-blooded meat - get some steak around your digestive juices - it won't kill you. It'll put some meat on your bones.

Having just learned from Nancy that I can enlarge these blog pictures, I stupidly decided to do just that to the piece of discarded turkey - thank God you chucked it - salmonella on legs by the looks of it.

Sorry about this Sharon but just checked through this blog and discovered the poor little man is, according to you "disbaled" - thank God for him you didn't type that word with a "double l" - bet he's glad he's only disbaled.

lol-we have to sign you up for more classes-you've got way too much time on your hands checking my crap spelling!

mater70 said...

Sorry Daughter Dear but it did tickle my funny bone and we "old secretaries" are almost always on the ball - errors tend to jump out and bite us in the bum:-). Be grateful I don't correct every error, but that one was worthy of comment. You know your Mater's sense of humour AND I confess I didn't see it on first reading.

Mater, hawaiian canoes can host a different number of men onboard. The smallest kind is a single canoe called one-man. And I thought the title of the post (Sharon's original post... BTW, these one we are doing here are comments, not posts) was referred to that. But the one in the photo is not a one-man, it's a six-men canoe. Hence my question to her.
Clear now?

Hugs and kisses.

Oh GP, your "comment" is as clear as mud to this inland lady but no matter, you make me go weak at the knees just by your acknowledgement of my questions. That's the sad thing about ageing - one is so easily gratified. Your "hugs and kisses" are very, very gratefully received (and returned). You're my favourite McVitie boy :-)
By the way, where have you been?
