4.1.39

Three eggs.

Clear, fine & generally rather cold (wearing light undervest, cotton shirt, pullover, coat, light pants & grey flannel bags), & do not find this too much.

Night before last the cock pigeon, which was only just regaining its power of flight, disappeared, evidently destroyed by one of the Arabs’ dogs. Bought another yesterday (Frs. 6.). This one’s wings are all right. Put him for the night in the cage, in the morning found the hen outside. Opened the door & they flew off together.

    Eric looks to have done his dough on the cock. That one para contains the cycle of life – lovely.
    Oh – and I’m concerned Eric isn’t wearing any socks – surely Eric isn’t a sandals man (flip-flops?)

    They have flown the coop,
    Straining their wills to be free,
    In the chilly air

    His future clearly does not lie in pigeon raising…

    No, one pair of (under)pants, one pair of grey flannel trousers.

  7. “Light pants” are a kind of British underwear made out of lasers.

    Thank you for your prompt reply to my recent query. And, yes, it is quite obvious the recuperating cock-pigeon did not simply fly or limp away but was victimized by an utterly barbaric Lack of Leash Laws.

  9. OR, to be fair,

    …..an utterly barbaric Lack of Leash Law Enforcement.

    well, at least I am not the only one wearing flannel pajama pants under my jeans…

    try it if you work in a cold place, its way cheaper than flannel lined jeans or long undies and jeans .. (and if it gets really cold you can still wear long undies under both, easily.)

    haven’t paid over 5$ for the flannel jammies ever… and the combo is wicked warm. (spring sales are your friend!)

    I’ve never heard of trousers being called “bags” before, but I guess that the teenage dormitory (Scout camp, not Private School) jape of “de-bagging ” makes more sense now.

    After reading this blog almost from the beginning, I’m having great difficulty these days writing a technical report without commenting on the number of eggs laid today.

    2 eggs
