Dear Lord, He’s Back!

Everything was going swell (do you like that? A little word thrown in there for my american cousins) Anyaways, life was great. I rejoined the gym last Thursday and I’ve been doing cross-country in the dark on Wednesday evenings with some friends. Cross-country in the dark is amazing, until you get lost in the forest. This particular evening it was just myself and the three girls. I did hope wonder if it was a preconceived plan to lure me in there alone but it wasn’t.

Of course this Thursday they have closed the gyms and locked us down for a month. I am one of those lucky people who isn’t affected by such things, ce la vie, as they say. But I am concerned for those who are affected and hope it is only a four week lock-down. Although I have to say after spending years (and I mean years lol) running and training alone I have become very fond of the company. The Princess is of an opinion that it’s females I am predominately surrounding myself with and makes overtones about Charlie’s Angels.

There’s a certain amount of truth in this, I’ve always preferred the company of girls. It started in the infants, they don’t smell, pick their nose, spit, punch you in the face when they’re drunk or flick their towel at your genitalia in the changing rooms. I’ve always found them to be rather pleasant company too.

I suppose I had better get back to the title? I know, I have digressed, it’s not old age I’ve always done it. You must be wondering by now? Well it’s Sooty, yes he’s decided if we’re going into lock-down he’s moving back in! Last night was his first night and he was quite keen to do some cross-country in the dark. If you’ve ever considered doing something similar with a small fluffy bear I would advise against it!

So there you are, you lovely people. Stay safe, stay healthy, be kind to one another and if you are in the USA, I hope the officials have remembered how to count by now xxxx

  6. Hmm, Charlie’s Angels, huh? I am so glad to see Sooty back – I loved those posts as well as this one. Running in the dark and trusting the head torch to the bear is like supporting Aldershot Town (which I do). And did I never tell you about the time my genitalia had a towel flicked at it by a girl who then punched me in the face? It’s OK, she was drunk and eventually I ended up marrying her. The towel lost badly and ended up in shreds. I am still married to the girl. Great post, Charlie.

  7. I really must get a computer that plays sound. I fear I miss much Sooty wisdom by not listening to the sound. However, in this day and age I feel it may be a bit risky lurking in the dark with your hand shoved up a well-loved icon of children’s TV. People are so sensitive these days and interpret all sorts of things in a negative light, as I tried to explain to Kylie Minogue’s legal team last week…

    • Haha yes Gillian did ask me upon my return what people may think of a bloke running into a tree several times with a puppet and a video camera. I was going to do the next one in the woods but I’m now a little cautious.
      The plot wasn’t too intricate, Sooty asked if he could wear the head torch and ignored my requests to raise it higher as I couldn’t see where I was going.
      I don’t anticipate any calls from Ridley Scott for a screenplay 😂

    My husband entirely agrees with you and much prefers the company of women. I used to worry about it but after 38 years I am used to it. There is always someone at work or in the street that has a harmless fancy for him…
