1; My littlest Granddaughter (aged four) said; “Nana, when I went to play at Evelyn’s we SNEAKED into her Mummy’s bedroom and got something ‘very private and special’ out of her drawers that we aren’t allowed to touch”.
I hardly dared ask…
“It was Lindsay’s machine to make sure that her baby’s heart is beeping”. WHAT a relief!

Whilst I was working as a Nurse in Out Patients at our local Hospital I was taking a history from a very quietly spoken patient who had a glass eye. I introduced him to the Consultant Dr Sands as; Mr H - who lost his eye as a child when he was attacked by a Pelican.

Whilst I was driving I saw a man sweating and swearing profusely re-loading vegetables that had fallen off his tractor-trailer. I said to him; Cheer up love; I’ll help you to pick all your turnips up – if you give me one for my dinner.

We spent a companionable hour chatting and picking them all up and as I said goodbye he said; Don’t forget your turnip, I hope you enjoy it.

When I got home and regaled my tale to my husband Tony he took the greatest of pleasure in telling me that the vegetable gift I had was in fact – a sugar beet!

I did ask for my money back - citing extenuating circumstances - but unfortunately my request was politely declined. Misers.
