Stripping Off

Ah, just as I was about to start this post, I put a cassette in the cassette player, I’ve got scads of compilation tapes, that I’ve made up over the years when you used to get what I call, good music on the radio, plus transferred from old 45’s [remember them] ? first one that came on was ‘Planes and Boats and planes, sigh, loved it, now Bob Newhart has come on, many won’t remember him but he’d just get up and do what they now call stand up, in a very tongue in cheek style, the one on just now is the one where the guy is going to jump off the roof , The Driving Instructor was one of the best known. just so funny.

I’d love to be able to put them on to CD but although I downloaded the software I’ve never got round to doing it. One day perhaps…..

Now to the main subject of this post, yes, Stripping Off.

The weather has been not only Spring like here on the South Coast but almost Summer like, sheer bliss.

I start off out with the dogs well wrapped up, as it’s a bit chilly first thing. As I get round the cliffs and down to the beach the sun gets warmer, and warmer, and warmer, till I am almost steaming, so off come the gloves, then the scarf, steady girl, can’t ignore it any longer off comes the jacket and sleeves tied round my waist, I struggle on. Been walking about 3/4 hr by now, the I stop to head back home. A few hundred yards further on, off comes the cardi, slung across the shoulder, getting hot, a quick stop and off comes the socks., Lor’d what I’d give to have a paddle  the sea, but I bet it’s freezing, anyhow I’ve got tights on. Which leads me to confess, that the other day I got this far with stripping off and I was near the castle, I trudged up the hundreds of stairs to the top and nipped into their toilets and took off the tights that felt like molten treacle on my legs.,but this time I’d gone too far beyond, so had to suffer it out, it would be just my luck to be spotted should I nip into the bushes and take off the trousers to remove the offending tights.

By the time I get back to the car, I am a dripping wreck. Why oh why, do I have to be one of these people who feel the cold so badly, ? other people can go out with tee shirts and sandals when I’m still wrapped up like Nanook of the North. It’s not fair. {Memories has just come on, big sigh! }

Maybe tomorrow I’ll start out half dressed and not have to shed so much.

[Say you Don’t Mind’ on now, can’t recall the singers  “I realize in your eyes I’m some fool” ] da.da.da. da. It’s just come on Denny Lane Sounds of the Sixties was the programme.


Bertie Higgins and Key Largo, so dreamy.

Then ‘The Crying Game’ Dave Berry I think [First there are kisses, then there are sighs, then before you know where you are, you’re sayin’ goodbye. ah what sweet memories

Just before I go Pagliacci, not everyones’ taste but I like allsorts of music, opera included.


Thank you for visiting and please come back, Arlene, AKA Lady Depp. LOL   Tango and Ruby


  1. i remeber 45s, and i like bob newhart as well. i used to watch ‘the bob newhart show’ because i like that kind of humor, even if my peers thought it was stupid. much of what the main populace finds funny i feel is retarded and juvenile. but ive always swam upsteam …
    my beau is one who used to feel the cold terribly, but now cant ever seem to be cool enough, even in the dead of winter. no explaining it.
    sounds like you still had a good walk!

    • A girl after my own heart Kirsten, music wise.
      If I could alter anything about me, it would be, to be taller and to be able to withstnad the cold. Maybe your beau will tell me the secret. Thanks for calling.

  2. Aha, got you jealous Lady Pen, beat you to it didn’t I, you didn’t know that he and I were having clandestine meetings in the sand dunes at Highcliffe. hee, hee, you don’t know what you’re missing.
    If it’s not warm enough to strip I’m not going to-morrow. Hugs back to Her lovely Maj XX

    • Moi’? Jealous? To right!! I bet you both scamper about those sand dunes not caring whose watching. I don’t know, what’s the world coming to I arsk you!! 😉
      Bess had a great time today, we played and she, … well I played and she caught the ball a lot. Hugs and woofs to you, Tango and Ruby..and JD of course, Lady Depp!! xPen and Bessx

      • Hee, hee, never mind Pen, perhaps if you’re very very good the pirate fairy [now who the h** ‘s she] may just grant you a wish, and I know what you’ll wish for.
        Gad to hear that Bess had a good day to-day, start building up these diamond days now, as you’ll need them one day, and you know what? there’s never enough, though I could fill Wikipedia with my dog memories.
        How’s about a poem on the Pirate Fairy [of the Carribean] who knows it might give you brownie points with you know who….XXXX to all

  3. Lady Depp? **choke** since when oh dream filled one? and stop stripping to get his attention, some people’ll do anything. 😉
    I bet you’ve got a delicate lace hankie to drop if he happens to walk past? I knew it!
    Good luck tomorrow, being half dressed, I hope it’s lovely and warm and no need for stripping for JD …hugs and woofs to you, Tango and Ruby, from xPen and Bessx
