Random thought

which just occurred to me, and will now bother me for ages unless I share it.

You may or may not know this little ditty

"Oh dear, what can the matter be?
Three old ladies, stuck in the lavatory.
They were there from Monday to Saturday.
Nobody knew they were there.

They promised to go to tea with the vicar,
They went in together, they thought it was quicker.
How could they know that the lock was a sticker?
And nobody knew they were there."

This is the thought which just occurred to me - if they'd promised to go to tea with the vicar, then surely HE knew they were there, and would have (or ought to have) sent out a search party to look for them?!

Hi there :)
I don't know if this is the blog I should comment on, but about juicing: when you first start out, you do replace meals except for dinner until you lose the weight you want to lose. You basically have about 4 or 5 juices a day, every 2 or 3 hours, then a dinner of lean meat and steamed veggies. But if you are taking a slower approach, you can definitely start out, as I did, just doing it once or twice a day. It still helps. Thanks for dropping by. :)

He doesn't know exactly where they are. He just knows they are missing. But yeah i agree, once people knew they were missing, you'd think they'd soon fine them. Never mind.

Of course he knew! Who do you think spread marmalade on the lock?

Hehe. Very funny.

I think the vicar was probably just thankful they didn't show up, and didn't ask questions. In any case, it makes more sense than "Miss Lucy," where the baby tries to eat the bathtub.
