Knowledge pursues me but I am faster.......

If you can’t dazzle them with brilliance, then baffle them with bullshit.......

.......One day, we will look back on this, laugh nervously, and change the subject…

Only in our dreams are we free. The rest of the time we need wages.

No.58 Sprocket has his 'hopper out .......

Sprocket has his 'hopper out
And he loves to have a play,
It really makes him happy
As he bounds along the way ...

Nige assumes the position
That he likes to now and then,
Hands on his shiny tackle
That's the envy of most men ...

And when our Springy Sprocket
Comes bounding through the grass
If Nige is not more careful,
he'll be bouncing on his arse!

Just about made it today. This is a little bit of a cheat as I have used stuff from previous ones .... really should do the linky to Sprocket's post from yesterday (on which it is based), but am a little weary .....

MaggieD says:

SLG, most certainly am, did you reply to my email? .....I know you were having problems with your emails, I haven't received it if you did :(

29th Jun 2007, 21:16

no not yet been struggling with choice of pic for this daily me thingy which nige has managed to coerce me into doing. So I now have another blog called 'whose shoes' which will no doubt tell my daily story pictorially ha ha ha

MaggieD says:

SLG, no worries,

Well, I think you are all mad! .... and I am beginning to wonder about the mesmerising effect Nige has on us, he says jump, and we jump ..... click and we clickity click ..... if he wasn't so cute and cuddlable and downright lovable in his mission to spread fun and laughter throughout the blog, I would be, even now, calling in Louis Theroux .... ;)

That's great fun Maggie :) Sprocket said he was all sore from bouncing on the hopper the next day. I miss doing doing stuff like that.My friends and I always intended to wear all the skateboard body armour and go out in force on space hoppers in town, doing daft stunts to take the mick and pee the skaters off. Wish we had done it - maybe i will yet ;)

Sprocket says:

Post space-hopper I couldn't walk properly for three days.

Def on for those pancakes MD

Thanks, peeps,
Joker, rude? ..... this is a simple portrail of a family day out, Sprocket on his spacehopper, Nige getting some super macro shots with his new lens (the envy of us all) and 540 doing his civic duty and alerting Nige to the potential danger ... nothing 'rude' there'.... I think you should look to yourself and your interpretation ;)

P: Recently have been working on a few other projects after school.... usually I log in and have a whizzz around the site most evenings, get an idea of what is going on and then on Friday morning sit back and have a lovely relaxing hour or two getting the cartoon together and posting it ..... last few weeks have been quite hectic, so pic has had to be very last minute (no time to trawl the blog) so cartoon is a rushed job taken from the last few days and done in a few spare ours on Friday afternoon .... but summer holidays are on the horizon :)

Alicat9 ... I have some lovely visual images of extreme spacehoppering :)

JokerXL says:

Oh, right, must be me then, nothing to do with Nige's shiny tackle (which, incidentally, I don't envy at all) or Sprocket playing with his 'opper.
All in my filthy imagination.
(note to self; wash brain out thoroughly)
