The Birth of the Atomic Age

Vest, Yours truly was nineteen years of age on that day sixty four years ago when the test bomb exploded in the New Mexico desert. I do not recall any joyful activity on my part and the day was as meaningless as the continual visits from the 'One way Ticketed Divine Wind' Japanese Air force planes to the British Pacific Fleet. Mind you Uncle Sam's Boys were constantly visited being they were soft targets compared to the Brits. Its true, over a period of six months the yanks lost over forty ships, the Brit fleet of 70 ships lost none.
The 'A' Bombs were responsible for preventing a possible hundred fold more lives should the conventional warfare had continued to the bitter end. However unlike some poor souls I am still here with most of my faculties and still able to remember.

For you Muzzles out there, July 16 ad 622, the Muslim calendar began.

And at 2100hrs BST on July 16 1969, Apollo 11 took off for the Moon.

Also on July 16 1966, Simply lucky to make it through, I retired from my first job on a one third of pay pension from the RN.

Due to natural attrition, the decrease in our association members, has left me holding the job as chairman - secretary - treasurer and Rum Bosu'n. little wonder I am beginning to talk to myself.

Back later more than sooner, enjoy your day, Vest.

hi Vest. Today I noticed in your favourite Newspaper, the Daily Telegraph, that Cross dressing prick Warren a lousy retarded cartoonist dragging out the bigotry at his shithouse best again, what dickhead allows this unemployable bludgerygalah Warren to scribble his outmoded crap in the Daily telegraph, someone should put his bollocks through the wringer.

Vest said...

Thankyou Rosey Posey XXXX.

Vest said...

Ah Gordon, I noticed you used that fav cliche of mine only an ex U/K res would apreciate that. Bludgerygalah its a gooden ennit.
The last guy to call me a 'POM' in anger was unable to pronounce the letter 'P' after my head hit his face, but that was a while back.
More recently one large unfriendly geezer used the pom word on me,I retaliated and informed the guys and gals that he only had a small dick. his current nick name is little dick.
Have a bun filled day.

SIPPING VODKA


A new priest at his first mass was so nervous he could hardly speak. After mass he asked the monsignor how he had done. The monsignor replied, 'When I am worried about getting nervous on the pulpit, I put a glass of vodka next to the water glass... If I start to get nervous, I take a sip.'



So next Sunday he took the monsignor's advice. At the beginning of the sermon, he got nervous and took a drink. He proceeded to talk up a storm.



Upon his return to his office after the mass, he found the following note on the door:



I said I Sipped the vodka, I did not take gulps as you did. I would further like to correct you on a few basic points:



There are 10 commandments, not 12.



There are 12 disciples, not 10.



Jesus was consecrated, not constipated.



Jacob wagered his donkey, he did not bet his ass.



We do not refer to Jesus Christ as the late J.C.



The Father, Son, and Holy Ghost are not referred to as Daddy, Junior and the spooky.



David slew Goliath, he did not kick the sh*t out of him.



When David was hit by a rock and was knocked off his donkey, don't say he was stoned off his ass.



We do Not refer to the cross as the 'Big T.'



When Jesus broke the bread at the last supper he said, 'take this and eat it for it is my body.' He did not say ' Eat me'



The Virgin Mary is not called 'Mary with the Cherry'..



The recommended grace before a meal is not: Rub-A-Dub-Dub thanks for the grub, Yeah God.



Next Sunday there will be a taffy pulling contest at St. Peter's not a peter pulling contest at St. Taffy's.
