Michael Edwards




I think I oughta

try to save water

and so  I’ll begin

by drinking more gin.

    Good idea Michael, we need to save the world somehow.
    Love the cartoon.


    • Michael Edwards

      Thanks Andy - good old British humour with a 'u'.

    • Neville

      Dare I say how extraordinarily, typically, & delightfully British sir Michael ... Now where's the HP ..


      • Michael Edwards

        The HP? It's behind the English mustard don't you know.

        Good write and pic M. lol.
        My poem is 'Save gin; add more water!' In my role here as the phantom tipple-waterer! They will shoot me for it. lol
        But what a cad, a bounder - on a show a business person approved an idea just cos she liked gin!

      • L. B. Mek

        the layers here...!
        so witty and full of diamond sharp sarcasm,
        as genuinely British (a poem) as the all day breakfast sign in the pic,
        btw don't forget that essential 'tonic'...
        another of your works that made me lol

        • Michael Edwards

          Thanks LB - the tonic has to be fresh (not from an opened bottle kept in the fridge and now flat) and plenty of ice and lemon (or other fruits). And drunk whilst reclining before lunch is served.

          Ha ha - well that one way to save water dear Micheal -- but Hic ! - - I had already made that decision and find it addictive.

            Plus wine with the meal and more Ton and Ginics to follow please.

          • The Uneducated O.A.P

            Went into a cafe in London, asked for a full English, no beans, breakfast arrived, with beans over everything, I complained, didn't like beans, she replied, " well you'll just have to scrape them off then!"
            Great morning double chuckle.
