I blame my forgetfulness, and lack of concentration, on my change of medications. (Unfortunately I have not had a change in medications, but think it sounds better than the onset of early senility).

This morning, I departed from the house, pleased as punch with myself, that I'd remembered my keys, bus pass, got the proper glasses on, got the hearing aids in, and remembered to take my midday medications with me!

As I got to the end of the street...

I realised I was still wearing my slippers!

I just thought I'd like to share that with you.

Take care all.

Well, it's better than realising you are wearing a hole in the carpet.

During the l980's and 90's my brother and I would often spend nights out with our dad 'over the dogs' (Walthamstow Stadium). He'd take a flask of tea with him rather than pay for 'the cat's piss' there! (Handy because he'd drive us all there and back which meant me and my brother could sink a few pints of beer.) Dad would be wearing his slippers. Old comfy slippers. We'd sit around the same table by the window(cheap side). It gave us a good view of the racing and was convenient during the winter as there was a radiator by it. Yes, dad would make himself nice and comfortable there for the evening's racing drinking his tea and sitting there by the radiator in his old slippers.

The car would usually be parked about two hundred yards from the track's entrance. Some winter evenings we'd be making our way from the car to the greyhound stadium when there'd be snow and slush covering the pavements. He'd still be wearing his old slippers. Happy days!

That's lovely and should be in a story. Not necessarily a 'spoof' story either.

Thanks for a lovely story Tommy. I'm a Londoner, and I can still smell the dog track, and taste the "Cats Piss tea".
Your Dad sounds like a diamond geeza.


Love as always

I have been concerned that this might become a future possible scenario/reality.

I've even dreamt of going out in 'me jammies!'

While writing this , I had what I think I thought was a good idea for the Spoof... but it seems it has disappeared into the ether now, drat it!
