Two Foxes, A Badger And A Lying Toad

The Wee Manny is a great believer in the old adage,

Early to bed and early to rise,
Makes a man healthy, wealthy & wise

It doesn’t seem to be working for him, as he’s none of those. But still he persists. Off to bed at 9-9.30pm and up again with the lark

The Wee Mannys plus dogs stayed here the other night. Next morning The Wee is up at sparrow’s first fart and he and his dogs went off for a walk in the fields. This is what he told us.

“It was great. You just wouldn’t believe the wild life I saw.”

“So what did you see then?”

“I saw two foxes and a badger.”

“Is that so? Where did you see them?”

“The foxes were in among the trees and I saw the badger crossing the lane.”

Hmmm. Call me a sceptic if you like but I’ve a feeling the only wildlife The Wee Manny spotted the other morning was the lying toad in the bathroom mirror.

I've been looking for "A Lying Toad" can't see them anywhere. But badgers and foxes we even get them here in Greba.We haven't names for them yet but if the Mrs knew what sort of food the badgers liked she'd be out feeding them, as well as birds, squrells ( how do you spell that?) and rats.

Sure, you Irish are renowned for the odd exaggeration every now and then (to put it mildly) - and especially the Wee Manny. Dis he not turn down a position aboard the boat of Jaques Guestuea (sp?.

Exaggerate? The Wee? Nevaire!

On the other hand I heard of this fellow who told the girls a crazy story about having his arm chewed by a shark...or was it a lion?
