Ah tell le first joke.
‘A human walks into a smart stable.
The horse says: “Wait you can’t come in here without a carrot.”
‘Yeah, go on’ say Le Uncle.
IMG_0200

Ah continue.
‘The human goes out to his car, looks in the boot and gets a bag of carrots.
He goes back in and says to the horse: “This alright?”
‘Crikey’ say Le Uncle, ‘A whole bag, that’s a fair suck of the sav’.
IMG_0203

‘Zat eez not le joke part’, ah zay.
‘You’re right Son’, zay Le Uncle,
‘There is nothing funny about a bag of carrots, Carry on’.

An Alarming Habit!

It was raining all day today zo I decided to surprise Uzzerr Muzzerr when she came to visit.
IMG_0170

Ah ‘ave taken up le pipe smoking which ah feel gives me an air of Bourgeoisies more in fitting wiz a Lord of mah stature.
Besides, what eez a smoking jacket without someone inside eet ‘oo eez smoking?
pipe1

‘Aha’, ah said, chewing the pipe wiz what ah felt waz an air of gentility.
‘Ow nice of you to pay a visit’.
Le Uzzerr ‘orses are taking me far more seriously now zat a smoke also.
Except for Muzzerr and Le Uncle.
pipe2

‘What eez zat Uzzer Muzzerr, you do not like zis pipe?’
Uzzerr Muzzerr looked az though she about to collapse on le ground.
pipe3

Zo naturally, ah put zat pipe away.
‘Do not paneec’, ah zaid, ‘all eez not lost Uzzerr Muzzerr’.
IMG_0176

Uzzerr Muzzerr eez flapping ‘er arms around
like a windmill and texting someone on ‘er cell phone.
Ah sense ah am big trouble for some reason.
IMG_0177

‘Calm down Uzzerr Muzzer’ ah zay, ‘zo you do not like zat pipe zat eez OK’.
IMG_0187

‘For ah ‘ave another one – ‘ow does theez look?’
pipe4

Mah Muzzerr marches over and tells me not to be such a Clown.
IMG_0179

‘But ah am not being a Clown – zis eez being a Clown, Muzzerr,’ ah zay.
IMG_0188

Ah am getting in to pulling le Clown faces.
IMG_0189

All of a sudden Uzzerr Muzzerr shows mah Muzzerr le text message she ‘as written to le ‘orse expert Jenny Paterson…

Dear Jenny Paterson,

Imagine my surprise to find that Zephyr has taken up smoking –

I know it may be my fault in that I was responsible for buying him a smoking jacket but I did not think he’d take that seriously.

How can I stop him before he becomes a problem smoker?
He informs me that it makes him appear bourgeois and that other horses take him far more seriously now that he smokes.

Worried
Cathy

Ah realise now what le panic eez, she zink ah ‘ave developed a ‘abit.
‘What a ridiculous notion’, ah zay, ‘what a ridiculous notion.
Ah can stop whenever ah like’.
And ah give ‘er mah ‘You are a stupeed ‘uman’,  look.
