Well thank you for that I dont know if I deserve it or not!! It begs the question worried in what way? Is it our demonstrative culture, witty banter or the DRINKING!!

Oh I get it now, (thanks to Youtube)! I'm at something of a disadvantage with cultural references to TV, as I don't have one.

It saves me enormous amounts of time...

...that I can waste on here

Having said that, I do seem to be living in the Discovery Channel. I've just this minute spotted this lad outside the kitchen window - he was foraging on the ground and my pack of Mouse Hounds nearly had him.

The other yoke turned up in the house last week. Mrs willk goes mental when they fly around the big hall. Never a dull moment

Nocturnal Flying Whotsit

Bad night. Woken at 0430 by the mouse hound pack chasing something around the house. Peered out bedroom door only to have hair parted by a Brown Flying Whotsit (aka a mogwai). Much flapping of towels and pillowcases failed to catch said intruder as it flew "bumps & circuits" through the big hall, up the stairwell, along the corridor (past Boudoir willk) and down over the balcony to repeat the process. It finally went to ground inside the ceiling rose of an electric light where it spent the night complaining. Mrs willk is not a happy woman. I must get ladders and high things today to scale the 13' to the fitting.

As for the catch, I'm undecided. Strawberry nets or a tennis racquet?

I don't.

There's lots on here who have multiple personality disorders and suchlike. It's almost a kind of online asylum.

I'm in the best of company

I do, the place is infested with them. However, I think it's the mouse hounds that catch 'em and bring 'em in for a bit of Sport...

I don't mind them, they add a certain something to the place.

Droppings, mostly.
