The Best One Liner Yet

As some of you are aware Master Benedict has a habit of producing some admirable one liners. This afternoon as we were travelling to tennis he produced his best yet...

Mrs T: It's Father's Day on Sunday. Any ideas what we should get Dad?

Master Benedict: We don't have a father.

Mrs T: What do you mean?

Master Benedict: We have two mothers.

So there you have it. The truth is out. There is not one but two Housewife Extraordinaries in the Turley Household.

Is it any wonder I'm mad?

I have a lot of sympathy with this poor depressed woman with her mound of ironing. However, I admire her too as she's actually got her iron out. I try to leave the ironing to Mr T or I bury the iron in the utility room and use the excuse of not being able to find it as the reason I am unable to perform my housewifely duties -unless Mr T has issued me my marching orders. In which case I first study the prenupital agreement and check for any get out clauses.

The above picture is a favourable comparison with a relaxing evening in the Turley Household - although I haven't  actually held our remote control since 1991.  Oh yes, and I'm not blonde and I'm not thin. It's not a bad likeness of Mr T though - although the remote control is missing from his breast pocket.

Any ideas for a Father's Day gift for the good Mr T are most welcome. Cheap ones please. I'm on a budget.


  1. LOL!! (Sorry, I keep forgetting this is a blog and not a text message.)

    Keep 'em coming, Mrs T. Call me old-fashioned but shouldn't men always do the ironing anyway? The little lady of the house really can't be expected to operate an electrical appliance all on her own, no? Wait a minute. That applies to ovens, vacuum cleaners, microwaves .. oh, and TV remote controls as well. Oh dear. No, wait - they only have batteries in, don't they?

    1. The Good Mr T is remarkably skilled in the ironing dept, Mrs B. I do not want to deprive him of something he loves so much:))

      (The trick is to balls it up for about ten years - wrong creases, burns, lime scale stains etc etc, eventually it become easier to iron their own shirts. I've never looked back:)


I am always delighted to receive comments!

Less is More (well that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it)

I've been practising my haikus, which you may recall, I'm not particularly good at. However, I wanted to address the woke issue in a...
