Thoughts for the day.

Why does Donald Trump always sign everything with a crayon, won’t the teacher give him a sharp pencil in case he pokes himself in the eye with it?

You’re not driving fast enough if you haven’t caught up with the person in front.

If you’ve caught up with the person in front, why haven’t you overtaken them.

Tried welding for the first time in my life today, had to fix one of the arms on the garage door, it certainly doesn’t look pretty but at least it did the job.

How come no-one noticed so many people were dying from powerful painkillers in the Gosport War Memorial Hospital, I suppose there is a chance that some of them were in severe pain and actually needed the opiates.

Why are there so many “celebrity” shows on television with people I’ve never heard of?

If you know the answers to any of these conundrums please let me know.


About The Diary of a Country Bumpkin

I am a retired actor, although to be honest I only retired because I wasn't getting any work due to losing my agent when I became a full time carer to my mother who had dementia. and the option of becoming an unemployed actor/waiter at my age was ludicrous, especially as my waiting skills are non-existent. Having said I’m retired, I don’t think there really is such a thing as a retired actor for I am still available for work, I just don’t have an agent or any connections with regards to obtaining any worthwhile work. I have over the years done student films when there is nothing else available, always low paid (if at all) the only incentive was always the promised copy of the finished film for your show reel which nine times out of ten always failed to materialise. I spent many years looking after my aged mother and shortly after her death I was lucky enough to run into an ex-girlfriend of many years ago and our romance blossomed once again, resulting in us getting married in 2013. My move to the countryside inspired me to write The Diary of a Country Bumpkin which tells of my continuing dilemmas in dealing with the rigors of the countryside from the unexpectedly large number of pollens, fungal moulds and hay products waiting to attack the unsuspecting townie. I enjoy writing, see my play Dulce Et Decorum Est Pro Patria Mori on The Wireless Theatre Company, The Plays Wot I Wrote and The Battle of Barking Creek both available on and am very fond of classic cars so my ideal occupation would be acting in a film I had written set in the 1930s/40s, we live in hopes. I am delighted to say that since venturing to the countryside where space is not quite the premium it is in town, I have due to the availability of two double garages acquired more classic cars to form a small collection the pride of which are a 1947 Bentley Mk VI and a 2000 Bentley Arnage. My various blogs and websites are continually evolving and I’m sure that by following the appropriate links you will find something which will edify or amuse. I have written a number of different books all available on Amazon, so don't be shy should you feel the urge to purchase.

    The painkiller situation sounds sad though. I guess they were having more of soul and spirit pain, than body pains. The pain of the soul and spirit causes some problems in the body.
    Maybe if they tried meditation and psychology the patients might have less reason to use opiates.
