That's too Weird!

I'll give ya Friday the 13th......

A bit of battiness

Though I don't believe in 'luck'

Or various spookiness


Now, c'mon Orchi

What's all this rubbish ya spout?


A talking, reading, barking dog, named Fido?

Who checks all the poems

And barks fiercely if people 'forgot'

To mark 'em 18+!


And married to KP?

Why, you hardly see her now

She's either in the papers or on telly

Or at The Botox Clinic

Or at The Old Trout Club


And the World's Worst Singer?

Well, you started it Orchi

You said you were a bad singer! 

And ya keeps writing poems to sing

Sing 'em in a sound-proof room, ya tell me!


They are horrible to me

They say 'Go sing....

Over the hills and far away'

Preferably as far away as possible

On the Moon!


And my pic


Not rats or gerbils

Nor mutant giant hamsters!

Now that would be scary for Friday the 13th 


Oh, and this whisky-watering.....

Well, I'm only trying to help

You'll not use so much whisky (gin, sherry, etc)

If ya add water to it


Pop round for a gin or three

With plenty of water

See ya soon!

      Cheers to the Gin, I know a lady who was dog sitting, put the dog to bed with her and it bit her on her chin, she sued the owner. LoL 🤣. True story
      So who is KP? Is she a famous lady? As for the gin count me in! LoL ps video hilarious some people are so weird when it comes to animals I still chuckle when I see a.dog in a coat or a pram. 💖

        Thanks Teddy. Katie Price it is - you'll soon seen her in the paper or on telly, probably every day! lol.
        True story too - a lady married her cat. lol. So that her money inheritance would pass to the cat when she is gone.
        I wished I had married a cat instead of KP. lol.

        • Teddy.15

          Oh nooo I thought you'd have better taste lol a lady married her cat yes in this day and age I would believe it totally. 💖

          You know I like it when you decide to deviate, dont'cha .. I completely forgot today was Friday .. let alone Friday the thirteenth .. one day seems to roll into another when one decides to take a few days off to recuperate from a vicious period of on call ................... hardly slept a wink last night and back to the old grindstone in 25 minutes or so ........ Neville 🙂

          • orchidee

            Thanks Neville. Only one Friday 13th this year I think. I'll be deviating at times! lol. Best wishes.

            Just a hint of water to unlock the flavour of whiskey. Gin is gin.

            To be fair you've brought it all upon yourself. (I always knew they were guinea pigs)

                            I've told you before about putting water in my whisky, it is worthy of sending you away to that far place where you sing with the bagpipes.
