If you dive off the pastry

 you sink in the custard.

    And very nice it is too, it must be Birds Custard though.

    There is a restaurant near to me called "The Pudding Club", this has a world wide reputation, I have been there a couple of times and in talking to one of the staff I asked about the custard they used - the answer was that they used Birds Custard as it was the one that their customers demanded.

      Had friends round for coffee in the garden (at a safe distance) and had to clean all the birds custard from the garden chairs - that'll teach me not to feed them.

      Good write and pic M. Miss Berles having pie and custard?

        I've just received a commission to paint an ultrasound of a little boy yet to be born. So much for the pudding club.

        - and swim in the hollowness
        of a life: without biting substance...
        another quirky offering, your work offers such effortless whimsy - of well-lived, shimmering silver wisdom: displayed with deftly subtle tones

        • Michael Edwards

          Gee thanks - I like that - effortless whimsy - can I use that for my next collection of odd odes?

          • L. B. Mek

            lol, of course my friend

              I'm an oldy and it has to be custard - plenty of it - not a little dribble like most restaurants serve and it has to be piping hot.

              • ANGELA & BRIAN

                We agree UNCLE MIKE ~ Cold Custard is ANATHEMA (has to be cut with a knife !) we both prefer DOUBLE CREAM or Vanilla Ice Cream ~ AMEN You get a chioce even in the Hungry Horse ~ Apple Pie (hot) £1:50 (now only 75p Boris pays the other 50% !) *Its the economy Stupid !*

                Love Angela & Brian 💛💛
