A new week

Sorry I haven’t posted much over the last few days, a couple of reasons:

I have been up to my ears in busyness, Cabaret and sound at Church, I have also been feeling quite ill, with an ear infection and have had between 0% to 60% hearing in one ear and I have been constantly dizzy and trying not to throw up most of Weds and Friday, Thursday was a complete no go day. Saturday I just felt so grotty and ill, but “The Show” had to go on. Sunday I started to feel a little better and did the recording and Today I feel awful again. I have decided if I feel that ill again I will just say I can’t do stuff even at short notice, there are others about who could do it I am sure. I really want that sort of Outreach to be right and sound the best it can and be as professional as it can be. But I must start looking after myself, It is going to take my body weeks to recover as I don’t recover as fast as most people and that isn’t fair on Mrs EB or myself…

Well enough of my misery and woes here is another Ronnie Joke to Start the week off with.
A Safari
A wealthy old lady decides to go on a photo safari in South Africa, taking her faithful aged poodle named Cuddles, along for the company. One day the poodle starts chasing butterflies and before long, Cuddles discovers that he's lost.
Wandering about, he notices a leopard heading rapidly in his direction with the intention of having lunch. The old poodle thinks, "Oh, oh! I'm in deep doo-doo now!" Noticing some bones on the ground close by, he immediately settles down to chew on the bones with his back to the approaching cat. Just as the leopard is about to leap the old poodle exclaims loudly, "Boy, that was one delicious leopard! I wonder if there are any more around here?"Hearing this, the young leopard halts his attack in mid-strike, a look of terror comes over him and he slinks away into the trees.
"Whew!", says the leopard, "That was close! That old poodle nearly had me!"
Meanwhile, a monkey who had been watching the whole scene from a nearby tree, figures he can put this knowledge to good use and trade it for protection from the leopard. So off he goes, but the old poodle sees him heading after the leopard with great speed, and figures that something must be up. The monkey soon catches up with the leopard, spills the beans and strikes a deal for himself with the leopard. The young leopard is furious at being made a fool of and says, "Here, monkey, hop on my back and see what's going to happen to that conniving canine!
Now, the old poodle sees the leopard coming with the monkey on his back and thinks, "What am I going to do now?", but instead of running, the dog sits down with his back to his attackers, pretending he hasn't seen them yet, and just when they get close enough to hear, the old poodle says."Where's that damn monkey? I sent him off an hour ago to bring me another leopard!
Moral of this story....Don't mess with old farts...age and treachery will always overcome youth and skill!
Bullshit and brilliance only come with age and experience.
