Gone shopping


Love the lizardy interior trim


Photography not allowed? Oh yeah?


And parked by a lady, of course

I know it's not funny. It's serious. The children's clothes fit her perfectly, but of course she never has any money does she? If she ever comes calling you may fare better if you mention my name, otherwise it could get unpleasant. Believe me. And she likes being called Aileen. Just when I was planning a quiet Saturday too. Oh well. And now she wants to meet a chap called Edrig. If this is my final post, don't fear for me. I'll be having fun, somewhere.

No Adrig? Perhaps it is a good time to be thankful for small mercies.
And enjoy yourself, where-ever you land. Or float. Or drift...

Wherever you are, keep well and writing!

Good fun! Your images and shopping.

I'm just reading now the tumultuous adventures of Edrig and Adrig. And I can assure you that they will not be interested in meeting Aileen. They're looking for tall, slim, pole dancing 717 Earth specimens!

Thanks for the comments ladies. You may have noticed some earlier replies to them have now been deleted by the effects of The Change of Mind Virus that is currently infecting my brain. I may have caught it from a lady called Aileen, or less exotically perhaps just from a neighbour's cat. Cats are chronically infected with it.

It took me a while to figure out...but that was the point was it not?

If you want a fun, fascinating 2 hours, just order Andrew's latest book. You will meet two adventurous male species who are ready to commit treason just so they can watch a few slim blonde or brunette Earth females going up and down a dancing pole. It's quite amusing at times but there is a deep philosophical element in that book which might have escaped even the author!

It's a very good book, Andrew. Hard to put down once you start reading it. It will need a sequel, of course. Otherwise I will worry endlessly about Edrig and Adrig unless I know they are each happily settled with a nice girl somewhere in Scotland.

That depends on what you think you figured out John, but whatever you figured, Hello and thanks for dropping by. Good to see you with your... eh is that a real dog or a Teddy toy type dog? I really can't figure it out but you both look very sweet anyway.

Andrew MacLaren-Scott said...

Ah... Thank you so much Claude. I do hope I may have an inkling of the deep philosophical element, there was certainly a bit of that intended along with the attempt to amuse (as there was in the Aileen books, though of course they are true stories aren't they?), but... readers do find different things in books, and so they should be able to in good books, and now I know that this is a good book because Claude says so! Now get to the top of your Toronto Tower and proclaim it to the masses (or even just the lady or gent you next bump into with your walker... I'm fairly sure it would be a change from their usual reading matter.)

Seriously though - Thanks again. I'm not sure how long Edrig and Adrig will be left amid the pleasant peacefulness at their breakfast table before they set off into disaster again, of they do... and that may depend on the reaction of some people I am contacting through the Autumn. My daughter wants to see it as a film, but then she is very biased in favour of her old Dad's nonsense. I wonder if she can persuade Spielberg? I wouldn't be totally surprised if she could.

Andrew MacLaren-Scott said...

Oh... and one thing I do know about Adrig and Edrig is that getting happily settled for long with nice girls (or old girls) in Scotland is very unlikely, although they may well try...

Have figured it out now though, having revisited your blog site (yes I recall being there before), negotiating through Googlystuff on the way. Lovely dog (Oh and no doubt you will be lovely too, just not quite as lovely as your dog)
