Mackerel

Had a brace of mackerel for dinner last night:

LSS: What time do you want dinner?
Me: About 7?
LSS: Seven o'clock?
Me: No, seven o'beans.

The kids were discussing bones:

Larry: You can't eat the bones, Curly.
Curly: Why not?
Larry: You just can't.
Me: It's because they might get stuck in your throat and you might choke and die. [Pause]. Why aren't you eating?
Larry: We're scared.

Spent the afternoon at London Zoo - half-price, as I had saved the admission tickets from last year's trip. Otters are favourite with us this year. Had bento box lunch at a Japanese place in Camden Town beforehand - salmon for me, chicken for the kids.

We have bought a new (old) car - Toyota Prius Spirit. Let us hope we have better luck with it than our last two secondhand crappy European cars.

Enjoy your time with the kids now. Kids have their own perception and it's amusing to see things from their perspective.

Its the same with Chicken bones and dogs.
I have a Wong Gau and he loves chicken bones and hasent died once after eating them.
As for London Zoo its always amazed me that the architect of the penguin house got an award but nobody asked the penguins if they liked it, sad.

Apologies, Phiz, I did think afterwards that I was being harsh in tone.

Icedink, I guess not too many people want to be reminded of work.

I asked the penguins, 962.

They said their enclosure was fantastic and most of them hadn't even realised that they weren't actually in the Antarctic.
