It’s my new resolve to write a post when I add someone to my ‘Blogs I read’ list here. There aren’t heaps of blogs but I do visit them nearly every day. I have written a bit about some of here. Here’s my newest addition – Old Horsetail Snake. I just read one of his posts about smoking in the rain and I snorted out loud at work. His humour cracks me up and it is really refreshing and not pretentious. When and if I ever get to live in an Old Folks Home I would like him to be my neighbour.
Thanks to Ronni Bennett for referring his blog to me. She’s written a great review about Old Horsetail Snake. So to get you in the mood for Gene Maudlin of Old Horsetail Snake I shall life an excerpt from his post mentioned above if you didn’t already read it:
‘Carolina Sister and Prudence Corsetstay, two of the stalwarts in The Old People’s Home, were out having a cigarette in the rain the other day. Ms. Sister pulled out a condom, clipped the end off it, fit it over her cigarette, and continued smoking.
Prudence: "What the hell is that?"
Carolina: "A condom. This way my cigarette doesn’t get wet."
The next day Prudence hied herself to the pharmacy and asked for a box of condoms. The pharmacist gives her a strange look, on accounta she is easily in her mid-80’s. But he goes along with it.
Pharmacist: "Uh, what brand would you like?"
Prudence: "Don’t matter, as long as fits on a Camel." ‘
Visit him, I can pretty much guarantee you’ll have a smile on your face after you do.
