Strange but True

Of all my pictures that I've put on Flickr (right hand column of this page) good, middling and poor, the one that has had the most views is this

Stella has a theory – she thinks because I titled the photo ‘Manfruit’ that maybe (strange)people looking for porn might Google that(discuss amongst yourselves) – or could there be others out there who are starved of decent gooseberry photos? It makes me smile never the less.
And this one of dear sweet Huxley, one of next door’s cats has had none (cat mother hang your head in shame)and although he has a few disgusting habits which I won’t mention he is such a darling with his enlarged spleen and compromised immunity, failing kidneys and all…………

I do think it’s good that we all have different tastes, likes and dislikes . We should all be able to celebrate our differences as well as what brings us all together.
So when those hairy fellows are in season once more I shall take more photos for all those secret gooseberry lovers to drool over, just don’t expect me to eat any.


  1. I'm with Stella on this one!

  2. Laughed out loud at your post today - some folk are strange!

    Fruit is as friut does...Love Huxley XX

  4. That is too funny! Amazing what people will "google" for!

    Seeing the gooseberries reminded me of an episode of "Keeping Up Appearances" when Hyacinth was rather intoxicated with the "Lady Ursula's Homemade Gooseberry Wine". Can't say I've ever tried one (gooseberry that is, not wine)!

  5. Lynn - the egg cozy arrived and it is beautiful! Even the tag that accompanied it is just lovely! Thank you so very much!

  6. ahhahahahah! I bet the porn thing is probably correct! hahahahahaha! this made me crack up!

  7. Hee hee! 'Manfruit'.
    You are funny you know.

  8. Made me laugh out loud, what ever you do, do not go into Mrs Slocome ("are you being served") mode and start referring to Huxley next doors cat as"pussy". Juxtaposed with "manfruit" you really might find GIGIBIRD coming up on some saucy little readers wives site, hope not to offend any readers wives out there, YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!!!
    Hope you are well speak soon stephne x

  9. This was too funny! I agree that people will search for the strangest things on Google!
    Love your posts!

  10. Because I have such a pure mind it never entered my head that manfruit the name I use for the horrible hairy gooseberry had any other meaning – trust Stella to guess correctly that it was a euphemism for well……you know. I have since Googled it and discovered a whole world I knew nothing about.
    I am hoping that if any lost soul surfing for a bit of perversion comes across my gooseberry pie they will start thinking about what’s for dinner rather than …...
    It’s pretty obvious I’ve lead a sheltered life isn’t it?
    I think it's too late to change.

    I couldn't fail to notice that not one of your commenters has commented on how handsome I am. Clearly they are blinded by my fluffy beauty. Huxley.

  12. I've never seen a gooseberry before!
