Monsieurs injection.

A white Toyota hybrid comes purposefully down the drive. It parks by the front door. Out steps an attractive, very well spoken, young lady in a nurses uniform. She's holding a black leather doctors bag . '' I've come to give Monsieur his vitamin injection ". 

Amid some momentary confusion ( she seems to think Angus is ' le monsieur ' in question ) we find she's come to visit the very old farmer. The usual district nurse is on holiday for two weeks and this is her stand in. '' They told me it was the house by the speed bump ". She is redirected to the second speed bump, 200 metres away, at the other end of the village.

Over breakfast ' the font ' wonders if a vitamin injection might spur me on to putting up shelves in the kitchen. Swedish humour.


  1. Hopefully when she saw you she didn't think that you were 'the very old farmer!' :-)

  2. Hilarity ensues! Good thing there are 2 speed bumps in the village. Good luck with the shelves.

  3. The font's dry sense of humor always gets me!

  4. Vitamins really can't hurt any of us, can they? When was the last time you had your hemoglobin and hematocrit tested?

  5. I love the Font's humour....don't think it has anything to do with her being a Swede whatsoever....she is just funny...and I just love her.
    So could you really use a vitamin injection my friend? There is the arrival of two very energetic balls of fluff in your household that you need to consider.
    My advice? Get the kitchen shelves up and keep peace at the ROF. Remember we women don't nag, we just say what we want over and over again until it's done.
