Things that annoy….Birthday special.

I’m just being mardy, ignore me.


Birthdays πŸŽ‚

They don’t really ‘annoy’ but is there something wrong with me that they seem to matter less and less the older I get.

There is little I ‘need’ and don’t want things for the sake of getting.

I don’t know.

I’m just mardy I think.

It’s nice that other people want to make it special for me and I appreciate that but I just cannot get motivated for it these days.

I think I put more effort into other people’s birthdays than my own.

Anyone else feel this way?

George reviews- The Legend of Sleepy Hollow

A nice, short scare.

Not the movie but the book by Washington Irving.

Published in 1820, this a short story about the Supernatural and an old Dutch American community.

If you’ve ever watch the film, you’d think this was the trailer for it as it beautifully describes the town, the region, the people and their idiosyncrasies.

The short story centres around the superstitious community and more so around Ichabod Crane, the nomadic teacher.

Greedy for the affections of the heiress to a local landowner, Crane come up against some love rivals and the Headless Hessian Horseman himself before becoming part of the folklore of Sleep Hollow itself.

This story is expanded upon by the movies but the Tim Burton movie seems to capture the stylings of the story the most.

A nice, short story to spook the kids with before bed.

Things that annoy….4

Mobile frustration.

Rant time?


Rumbles of annoyance? Yes.

Mobile phones πŸ“±, I like them. Great piece of technology but, over time it has created to worrying traits in people.

I could probably do several ‘Things that annoy….’ about mobiles if I broke them down into individual things but let’s go with a few……

A) Using whilst driving – What can you say. It’s dangerous and if you get caught in a country that prosecutes people for doing it, you reap what you sow.

B) Confidence checks – ‘Yes, we’ll, I went up to (checks phone) Toby and said you’ll just have to (checks phone) wait until Friday for the quarterly (checks phone) reports……..’

We’ve all been there and most of us do it but try to make a conscious effort to NOT check it every 2 minutes.

C) The drift – The aimless, blissfully ignorant wander across a space as the person is locked to their phone, without regard for who or what is about them.

D) Speakerphone – Phones have built in speakers and microphones that allow you have the device next to your head giving you a degree of privacy so WHY walk around with the phone in your hand like a miniature tray with the speaker phone on.

You then have to speak louder at the phone in order to be heard. I don’t get it. Phones are great tech so why make it harder to use?

People are idiots…….

George the Collie jokes and puns πŸŒŸπŸ’―🌟

The πŸ’―th gag. Enjoy. Re-read if required.

Now, my dad like jokes. A lot.

This is by far his most productive subject for blogging but liked doing other stuff when he gets time.

These jokes and puns are just for entertainment and he hopes they make you smile at least.

πŸ’― jokes posts is a lot when it’s supposed to be a dog blog but he has a lot of fun with George and wishes dogs could talk solely for fun conversation.

Anyway, I’m sure there will be more actual content soon but, in the meantime, enjoy.

Here’s the gag: ⬇️

Accordion to a recent survey, 95% of people won’t notice if you replace a word with a musical instrument.

That joke isn’t funny anymore……..

Not about a Smiths song..

Hello folks.


Yesterday i posted George the Collie Jokes and Puns 99.


Is 99 jokes too many? Is 100 too many?


It’s a tricky one for me as i like to post each day, even if its just a joke, to show i am still interested in the blog.


Things are frantic at home so actually sitting down and creating some dog related content for a Dog Blog is not happening at the minute.


I post reviews of audiobooks and places we all visit but i don’t want you thinking this is all i have.


Once i get a few things out of the way in 2018, i am hoping to actually be able to post some better stuff on the blog. More structured.


That’s the plan anyway.


As it stands, it will likely be more of the same until i can get a break and write something different.


Think of them a humorous holding cards…..img_6234
