You tube fest.

I have no life right now as I'm redecorating. The delirium of paint fumes and my partiality to hamsters makes these snippets particularly entertaining.




And in case you're the last person on the planet to have missed seeing the Otters, here they are.

We're doing our usual ESP act. I've been going through all the slides (earliest 1968!!) and there you are at about eight or nine with Chippy or, Chipy as Dad so alcoholically wrote on the wooden cross, when the hamster passed over. I wonder if they've met up in heaven and whether Chippy has forgiven him?

And what's wrong with hamsters may I ask? FYI Sharon also had terrapins as pets - any pithy comment to make about them?

EVERYBODY has cats and dogs - so common don't you know.

....and don't forget the Gerbils and my pet rat. I'm glad to say I'm over the rodent phase, but hamsters have just got that je ne sais quoi!

Harry the Hampster is still my favorite. Can't beat a rude hampster.

Terrapins are so British! Whats wrong with a good old turtle!

I had a pet chicken called fluffy (I dont want to talk about it!)

Did Fluffy eat well as and when the time came? Talking of which, don't kids choose the stupidest names for their pets?

I had totally forgotten about the rat - maybe that's selective memory on my part - why the hell did we allow you to have a rat?

Meesh: LOL-kinel I'd forgotten about that foul mouth little bugger!

Lano: GP had a she-pussy that turned out to be a he-pussy are you sure your chicken wasn't a cock?! (hence you being so tight lipped) :-)

Mater: I was 21 and living in America....so perhaps that had somthing to do with it?!

I stopped watching after the first one. I hope that was done with special effects, otherwise, it looks unspeakably cruel, inhumane, gruesome. How would you feel if someone did that to you? And you say you are partial to hamsters? I am so disappointed. It's one thing to be mean towards other humans, who, after all, can defend themselves. Being mean towards a fuzzy little creature that does nothing but mind its own business... I don't know what to call that.

Hnwrd: Easy tiger! I figure if Tic and Toc didn’t like the ride they wouldn’t keep jumping on it. Maybe their goal is multi spins and big air, or maybe they are furry victims of human abuse...what the hell do we know? I say options are good and if I were a Hamster I’d want a wheel, I just wouldn’t run that fast...

Thank God I wasn't mistaken about the rat - forgetfulness is quite a worry as one ages - I'm feeling totally fulfilled now I was never around with the rat :-)

Well answered re. the hamster wheel. Glad I brought up a daughter who can fight her own corner.

Bet GP was upset when his she pussy turned into a he. Not like him to make such a basic error. I'm quite surprised he felt able to admit his mistake in sexing his pet pussy.

"sexing his pet pussy"
Mater, I had a good laugh with that one! Thanks!

P.S.: The hamsters remind me of a joke I came up with while playing horseshoes and drinking beer on a beautiful Cape Cod weekend. Pardon me if its not funny....I think you have to be partially inebriated to appreciate it, here goes:

A man arrives at the emergency room with a horseshoe around his neck that he can't remove. The send him to x-ray to see what the problem is. The Doctor comes back and says, "you definitely have a horseshoe stuck around your neck, it shows up clearly on the x-ray, but can you tell me something about the hamsters?"

Oh Lord Ely, I must be thick - I don't get your joke. That is one problem about always being sober, certain things are definitely not funny. It's surprising what a couple of bottles does to one's funny bone.

HOWEVER, when it comes to discussions on sex I still retain my sense of humour and that's despite being a septugenarian.

Nice one Ely.

Good one Mater-despite my correct guess I still had to look up septugenarian!
