The bull in question probably only weighed as much as a London Bus at the time; now he weighs at least as much as two.
His temper hasn't improved with age, and I wouldn't now be quite as foolhardy.
If I was to find him outside our kitchen door these days, I'd run for the bloody hills; not that we have any hills!
Do all matadors use tea towels?ReplyDelete
In my house they do!Delete
You're not wearing your coat with the shiny lights !ReplyDelete
I was still saving-up for it.Delete
I wonder why it has to be red always.ReplyDelete
I think it's just tradition; any colour would do, one is simply attracting the bull's attention.Delete
I hope you're a fast runner!ReplyDelete
I was then; not so much now!Delete
How much red had you consumed?ReplyDelete
Probably too much.Delete
Olé ..... corrida de toros !! ..... the red gingham tea towel sort of lets it down but your beret makes up for it !! XXXXReplyDelete
My ordinary cape was at the cleaners.Delete
I would class this as the application of Darwin's Law....ReplyDelete
survival of the fittest... and that bull looks mighty fit!!
Were you trying for a Darwin Award??
My exact thoughts at the time were *($$£***))&""!Delete
I think your 'cred' disappeared with the pink tea towel Cro.ReplyDelete
I can see that little electric fence - you don't fool me...ReplyDelete
There was, in fact, a thin plastic tape between he and me. Nothing that would stop the mighty roar of Lumberjack's Bull.Delete
I bet that seemed like a good idea at the time.ReplyDelete
There wasn't much else to do with him.Delete
Sorry somebody pointed out that tape and here was me thinking you were in training to be a matador.ReplyDelete
I was Weave; honest!Delete
The bull is actually standing much further away than everybody here thinks.ReplyDelete
Shut up, you spoil sport!Delete
I did wait until late in the day..Delete
Actually, he was very close, but he's as mild as they come (mostly).Delete
Even with electric fencing, i'd not have done that. But, I must admit, i'm on the wuss side of such things.ReplyDelete
You and Lady Magnon too.Delete
Matadors would look better if they traded in their silly-looking little hats for a more dapper-looking beret. I'm afraid the pink and white tea towel doesn't quite cut it, though. :)ReplyDelete
I'll write to the matador's union, and see if they'll adopt berets!Delete
LOL...inspirational pic...worthy of a poem !ReplyDelete
