6th September 2006

Well, here I am on my last night shift for the week. Its quiet now so I've been doing some more of my "scribblings" for later blogs and thought I'd share one with you anyway. Its funny that I call them "scribblings" because I'm actually typing the stuff!

As usual, I've hunted for a suitable image to put with the blog using Google images and a random key word. I came across the above pic. (which I think is Montana) and liked it.

The lads have been ok tonight and in jovial mood, however, thats partly because some of them had been out drinking earlier. Alcohol is banned on the premises, but we can't stop what they do outside. Fortunately, there were no problems as a result. Here is my scribbling for tonight....

Marty’s obsession with accents – The unmistakable word of God?

Here’s another little story (not witnessed by myself, I might add but recalled to be by my good friend Alan) about the way words and an accent can be mis-interpreted. This may be a made up story or something already well known. All the same, I still found it funny.

Alan was travelling on the train to London one day and, as you do, dozed off for a little while due to the gentle rocking of the carriages. There came a point when Alan jumped awake. The Afro-Caribbean guard suddenly and loudly announced through the speakers “Goood afternooon ladiezz and gentlemen, these eez your God speaking”. Needless to say, Alan having just awoken, almost gained a faith!

Take care folks.... Thanks for all your wonderful comments on my blogs. I treasure them all. You've all been very kind and friendly

I have actually seen the scene in the picture, and it is that beautiful, Marty!!

Well, my line is usually "Kneel before your Goddess!" which I say to Superman in one of his films, but he just laughs at me. Why, oh why, doesn't anyone take me seriously????

Have a good weekend!!!

Quite possible it's true. The "funny things people say" items in my blogs are all genuine ones heard at work by either myself or my colleagues.

Marty your blogs are great to read! And I for one can understand how accents can sound funny to those of who are not used to them. I get the mick alot of times when I say "Donnor Kabab" when I say it,it sounds like "Donna Kabob".
keep the faith Marty and keep smilin! x

WOW I think that pic of the montana mountain is one of the mountains in the area that I just spent this past weekend :) I love it! But then everyone knows by now how much I love the mountains :D
Just want to say that I really enjoy reading your "scribblings". I come by every day to read what you might have to say next. And your story of Maria so touched my heart! thanks for sharing your heart with us. That takes courage!
