Recently a local lady died in a car crash and her photograph was on the front page of our local paper. Unfortunately she happened to look like me and now I sometimes get strange looks when I’m out and about.
My friend, JeanGenius, had obviously not seen the newspaper and was bemused when she was offered the sincere condolences of the staff at our regular eatery.

This week our little man Noah, the youngest member of the family, is in the joint care of Nanny Kim and me, with Grandad Phil and OG in attendance whilst his primary family is away on holiday. He is the cutest 7 mmonth old perfect baby and a pleasure to have. We all love him to bits.
And finally …..two elderly gentlemen from a retirement home were sitting on a bench under a tree when one turns to the other and says:
'Stan, I'm 83 years old now and I'm just full of aches and pains.. I know you're about my age. How do you feel?
Stan says, 'I feel just like a newborn baby.'
'Really? Like a newborn baby!?'
'Yep. No hair, no teeth, and I think I just wet my pants.
