Mwah ha ha!


  1. Sorry to scare you RWP.

  2. It's not so much that I'm scared as that I suddenly pictured myself as the innocent pumpkin about to be disemboweled by the razor-sharp barber. Makes me want to let my hair (what I have left of it) grow very, very long. I mean, you can't trust anybody nowadays. Present company excepted.

  3. Robert, it's understandable that you feel this way at the moment, with your elections so close. I too am concerned about Mr Ronmey's apparent lack of 'belief' in man-induced or -exacerbated climate change.

    If this issue is one of belief, then what hope is there for pumpkins, or, indeed, the world?

  4. Kate, that's not what I meant at all!

    Sometimes I think I don't know you.

    Well, that's actually true, though,
    isn't it?

    But as Humphrey Bogart once said to Ingrid Bergman, we'll always have that grapes painting...oh, and that Maori phrasebook...and our blogs, of course.

  5. Robert. I apologise for confusing you. My last comment was a tease. I know from your comments with YP that you have DIFFERENT reasons for preferring the OTHER candidate...

    At least I think that's so.
