Arrested a Snake

Cox's StackTwo boys who saw a two foot long snake crawling on a ledge above a shop in Renfrew Street, near Charing Cross, Glasgow, dialled 999. Constable Alex Higgins climbed to the ledge and knocked the snake to the pavement. He put in in a box and took it to Mr Andrew Wilson, who has an indoor zoo. Mr Wilson said - " It was a common grass snake - but the Constable didn't know that at the time".

No Fooling My Young Lass!!

My wee lass hates rice pudding so I tinted hers pale pink and topped it with whipped egg white.
Deceive her? Never. She said - "I noticed you've dolled up this stuff, but it still tastes exactly like the same stuff to me"!!!  Grrrrr!!!
