To listen, tickle the old man with your mouse.


















If you want to read, ask the old woman for a quiet place.

its not like me to want to be first,
and yet,
it seemed to be
a good time to do so...
hey bright Puppy...

And he/she who is last shall be first (waves at Lisa). Now, on to the story...

tsduff said...

I had to look up "tonsorial", and it didn't mean anything I thought it would. Now I'm having even more trouble, trying to imagine how Ramak's process would be barber-like. Hmmm. Nice twist with the old guard in the pants trick.

mireille said...

What a cute old man. And he smells good. That mother-in-law, though. Can't count and she's grouchy. xoxo

actonbell said...

That old man looks so familiar--nah, couldn't be...

So, what's the joke?

G said...

I'm not going anywhere near that old man's mouth. Er okay, let me go give a listen...I'm a very squeamish person - ask anyone.

G said...

Okay, well at least now I'm laughing. Be careful with barbers, I hear they're sensitive about being called beggars.

May I add - some of your finest acting to date :)

Doug said...

First you are, JJ. Enjoy.

Terry, this is why I shouldn't make these things up on Saturday morning when I'm rushing. Of course I meant Sartorial. The barber had me going.

Mireille, it's funny too because her daughter got to 1001.

It's a knock knock joke, Actonbell. You can make it up. Neva's good at them.

Thanks, G. Rushed but fun.

"rabbit thtew for thupper?"

ha! excellent!

quilly said...

So, the newest guard is a little pr-BLEEP-ck, huh?

Jamie Dawn said...

Quilly's comment CRACKS me up!!!!
I intended to leaven a eunuch-related comment, but her pr*ck comment tops all!!!

I like the photos you chose to use.
The old feller looks like a guy that welcomes people at my Walmart, and the old woman just looks very neat with all those wrinkles. What a great photo subject she is!!

Where is the whole file again?
I have to ask my computer died.

Rabbit Stew, of course.

Doug said...

JJ, one of my favorite meals.

Um, well, I suppose, Quilly.

JD, what's the point in leavening a eunuch?

Cooper, you mean this? I guess I should put that in the sidebar, huh? Note, it isn't updated since the first of the year so the January chapters are missing.

TLP said...

I can knock knock all I want in my knickers. There's never a pr*ck there. Darnitall.

Minka said...

“Do you want to hear a joke? I used to be a barber.”

"and a brass helmet covered his hair that looked and smelled like artemesia leaves"

"The larger of the two guards and the fairest of the handmaidens both blushed."+

You certainly still posess the element of surprise. Great episode and fantastic reading this week.
That toothless weirdo is so lovable.

Doug said...

TLP,...oh, never mind.

Thanks, Minka. I kind of like him, too.

puppybrose said...

thinking that "toothless weirdo" reminded you both of someone you know and/or... like (less toothless, but weird, nonetheless).

i LOVELOVELOVED this edition, and am so stinking sorry to arrive a full week late. who knows? i might have come sooner, had i know there was a Knock, Knock joke involved (that's what she said...) ; )
