    I can’t log on to the Frying an Egg site – it won’t let me!

    So, with apologies to Robert Browning:

    “Nice photie, Mr Duke.”
    “Aye, dead photiegenic.”
    “Nice smile.”
    “Instant bloody sunshine. Her looks went everywhere – no jist at me.”
    “It’d look lovely on the living room wa’.”
    “Upset the new wife, like as no’.”
    “Oh aye.. the boss says she’ll be here the morra. Nice wee wumman.”
    “Better be, or it’s the last time I use your bureau.”
    “Kylie went back tae her mither efter the divorce?”
    “Aye right.”
    “Australia, wis it?”
    “Aye, down under.”
    “Well Ah’d better go. Nice wee statue there.”
    “Specially made in Austria. Watch yer feet on the patio. The cement’s no’ dry yet.”

    It’s a great thing the educashun! Very impressive.
    I need to invite you as a contributor and then I convert you into an author (don’t ask). I’ll do that and then if you’d be so kind as to post this on the site, that would be much appreciated.

    Me again. Come to think about it, you should still have been able to post it as a comment as any punter would (not that you’re just any punter you understand)

    Invitation received and instructions followed. Confirmation received. Nae luck. Maybe it’s too soon. I’ll try later – or in the morning. In the meantime I’ve made a tiny tweakette. If you can cut & paste this, post it yourself!!
