He's back! / 25 February 2012

Zoom in to this image and read text description

Just when you'd all been lulled into a false sense of security and felt able to visit the blog section of the DAO web site without the need for extra double-gusset strength protection, I'm afraid we have to break the news to you that ... he's back!

Yes, that old curmudgeon* Crippen is back from his bed of pain and incontinence and has once again picked up his pen ready to do battle on behalf of crips everywhere.

"It's good to be back" he told us when we spoke to him at the home for the terminally bewildered yesterday. " I'm really looking forward to getting stuck in again and creating some sleepless nights for young Mr Hambrook as he waits for the writs to pour in again!" (Ed: Groan!)

*A crusty irascible cantankerous old person full of stubborn ideas (Ed: Sounds about right!)

Thanks for all the welcome back posts and emails that I've received over the past week. Warmed the cockles it did :-)

Missed you!

You've really been sunning yourself all this time in some Spanish hideaway for activist cripps and nutters haven't you ;P

No it's not concrete Col. It's a wooden groin. I get attached to it every couple of weeks as part of the coastal defence programme. I did offer my own groin but they said it was too old! ;-p

Good to hear from you Dave! Is it me or do you have a concrete block attached to the back of your head? ;)
