Category: Bonnie the Wonder Dog, My Drivel
Okaaayy. So, my attempts to stave off whatever it was that laid low the wife & offspring last week by taking aspirin & oranges in quantity for the past four days have failed and I am now sofa bound with a temperature that suggests a fault with the thermometer.
The distaff side has declared me hors combat until Monday.
I don’t know what to do with myself. I’m never ill. I did have a quick look at “Les Misérables” which has come fascinate me over the past 24 hours following a critic losing control during a radio interview where he was supposed to be reviewing the new film and resorting to some fairly unprofessional language, but I gave up after three pages.
Sentences should not be that long.
Besides, I’ve not finished “Phinaes Finn” and I’ve got only about 50 pages left of that, just as soon as the room stops going round and I can blunder upstairs to get it.
My only companion for the moment is the Vendéen Stink Hound. I keep suggesting to her that she go outside and fetch me a log or two in her mighty jaws. She prefers the rug. Lassie would do it differently.
