Wasp Up Doc?

Not been blogging recently. Nothing's happened. Until this morning.

On the phone to my mate Bob (ex-CID) who now lives in Australia, he tells me he's been feeling a bit crook. It's his lungs. In our day it was mandatory to chuff back 60 Senior Service a day if you wanted to look the hard copper, and Bob's now paying the price. He's been coughing a lot, so they got him up the local hospital for a chest x-ray, fearing the worst.

Later he gets a call on his mobile. It's serious. Has he been walking in the bush, or out in the yard much? Well actually, yes. Why? Because the x-ray has shown up, as clear as day, a wasp on his right lung. Come to the hospital immediately for urgent investigation.

Driving over to there, he gets another call. It's the hospital again. Mrs Peters, who had an x-ray after Bob, also has a wasp on her right lung. They've got a wasp in their x-ray machine.

I've heard of kidney machines taking the piss, but that takes the biscuit.

He-He! Enjoyed that.

Glad your around again.... I feared you'd been totally dismantled!!

Nice to hear from you again, Nethercourt young sir. I suppose they are carting me off bit by bit, but there's still plenty left. Think of me as one of those demolition sites around these parts that they never quite seem to get around to clearing completely.

Only one more leg to go and you'll have a dong which touches the floor, which is, I believe, every mans dream, is it not?
