Clear Sight


 
I see the world clearer now.  By that I do not mean I have read and understood all the propaganda spewed out of the various political parties, no siree.  No-one understands those, not even the writers let's be honest.  I did however receive the Tory leaflet through the door today, personally addressed to me.  This tactic of personally addressing such leaflets is motivated by a desire to convince the householder that he is worth something to the candidate, nobody believes that!  So a glance at the picture of the smug git was enough to put me off.  Certainly he has abilities, clearly he has some experience of life, there can be no doubt he suits this Tory dominated constituency but will I vote for him, I doubt this very much!  He did not reply to my Twitter tweet asking him one question, only the Labour man managed that to his credit, the two others I asked also failed to answer. Today's media is quiet on the election however, just another Cameron fear story re the SNP. Nothing regarding policy, just one of Clegg's promises that mean nothing so it shows the Conservative Party are struggling indeed if their media are quiet.
However we get away from the point!

The point is I can see clearer now.  Indeed I see better than I have seen for ages.  You see work has begin on the outside of the crumbling building and scaffolding has been erected for the men to (slowly) do the work.  Naturally one is off at the hospital for some results and the other is off elsewhere today.  All we have is a couple of scaffolders erecting even more poles and planks remarkably quietly.  This erection allowed me to make use of the scaffold to clean my windows!  You see owing to several problems, sloth being the most obvious other than the weather, it has not been possible to actually clean the windows without much stress and hassle.  Today however I clambered onto the scaffold and removed eons of dirt from the outside of the glass.  It strikes me now I am sitting watching the gray clouds gathering outside that I forgot to continue and clean the inside also. Oh well, another job for tomorrow.  

 
Where do 'bluebottles' come from?  You know those big blue flies that race in the window flying around seeking escape and usually leave by the way they entered?  I ask because each day this week I have had one on the window that will not go to the open kitchen window but wanders around the front one.  This forces me to get up and open it and chase the brute around until he leaves.  This window remains closed because of traffic noise yet it is this one the beasts insist on visiting.  Maybe once I clean it they may find it less interesting.


Tesco today announced a loss of £6.9 Billion.  This has much to do with clever accounting that failed and opening too many large stores where they were not wanted in the first place.  Many stores have closed, jobs lost, others threatened.  The books are now clean and we move on they say.
Considering the manner in which prices have grown so sharply, I spent £35 now where I spent £20 before yet they make losses?  I find it hard to believe.

Not familiar with the term bluebottles for a fly, Adullaman. Our bluebottles are deadly jellyfish. You are brave or ? hopping out onto that scaffolding just to clean a window. But if the view is clearer now who am I to question such insanity.

It makes me happy that the erection helped you in the cleaning of your windows, Mr. Ad-Man.

Naybe you should shop at Lidl or Aldi. I find it amazing that Tesco can have fallen so far so fast. There must be more to the story, or was it just a really bad chief executive? It seemed unstoppable....

Lee said...

I meant to ask, does it mean now that your windows are clean on the outside but not on the inside, people can see in, but you can't see out?

Jerry E Beuterbaugh said...

Did I read what Lee wrote right?

Lee said...

You did, Jerry...I was only echoing Adullamite's own words! I couldn't ignore the elephant in the room! lol

Jerry E Beuterbaugh said...

Come on, Lee. Did you really have to employ the elephant reference? Methinks bandicoot would work quite nicely in a number of ways.

Lee said...

Hahahahaha, Jerry....actually the same thought just past through my mind a few minutes! There was no subtle or not-so-subtle meaning intended! I know you won't believe me! lol

Adullamite said...

Carol, The scaffolding is safe enough, it was coming back in I fell over everything! Bluebottles are not flies, they are very big fly's!

Lee, Stop it!

Jenny, A Lidl here but I see it dearer than Tesco though people say it's cheaper! Something very bad at Tesco I think.

Lee/Jerry, Can i point out that the idea of cleaning the outside is so that I can see out but as the inside is dirty they cannot see in! It's quite simple, like you two!
Whoever wrote right or wrong about elephants and Bandicoots whatever they are can now write rightly that they are banned!



Jerry E Beuterbaugh said...

NOOO! YOU CAN NEVER BAN MY DICOOT!

Adullamite said...

Jerry, It is no longer banned Jerry.
I shot it!
