A Bulgarian boll weevil mourning its first-born

T.Aldous is in high dudgeon. He's sorting out some problems with the building contract for Cattermole Street Library. Unfortunately for him, he's been sending emails to the wrong person.

"Wesley Hancock's retired," he tells Maisie. "He told me he was retiring at the end of February, which I would have thought would be the end of this week. He must have had some days' leave left to take because the cheeky beggar left last week without telling me."


Maisie is earning all her sainthood points.

And is the good Mr. Hancock actually retiring or just becoming one of the undead like T. Aldous?

He should take a leaf out of Wesley's book

I nearly purchased a small winery in High Dudgeon. It was only the amount of stray dogs in the street that turned my head away at the death.

Are we sure that T Aldous isn't making up time he owes?
Faint hope - clutching at straws I know.

Been away for awhile here - has anyone started a sweepstake on the expected date of the final sighting of T Ald?

Madame deF: I think he's got more sense.

nursemyra: oh please God...

Jimmy: you're well out of it, the local mortality rate makes it look like Midsomer murders.

Pat: it was a kind thought.

Macy: yes, and I've lost £1 on it.

When do we get the drama documentary?
The tale of T.Aldous should be told!

Kaz: what do you think I've been doing over 5 years and 2,400 blog posts? (-:

Perhaps you could photocopy and enlarge a dictionary definition of the word 'retirement' and place it somewhere prominent because I don't think T Aldous knows the meaning of the word.

eyeball: experience tells us that the subtle approach never works with him.
