Unclebluebottle has just given me this unique photo showing the exciting result of years of meticulous calculations and precision workmanship that went into the making (and wrecking) of the very first chairycopter.....
Despite the unfortunate destruction of his home, unclebluebottle was in high spirits when he spoke to the press........He told reporters that he was very satisfied with the chairycopter's maiden (and last) foray into the skies of Little-Bonga, as the craft had succeeded in getting off the ground........
He moved to the other side of the island on the following day.........

I?ve just come across your comment left on one of my first photo uploads from February of this year with an invitation to chat. I would like to thank you for the invitation but I?ll pass for the simple reason that this sort of thing is not (my thing). I?m flattered for your invitation. BUT I still might !
Thanks again, Boston_Jack

pdevredis

Yes, I wondered what the person who posted the puzzle would make of that! :-D

Wonderful song, which will now play in my head the rest of the evening......great........

david06520

or slightly bothered


or perhaps a trifle BEWITCHED!!!

!!

lelabugosi

Well, that is indeed SHOCKING!!...........(I think the person who posted the puzzle may be slightly bewildered!)......

Speaking of pomegranates......

lelabugosi

Hee-Hee....Well, it was true before you made your comment, which was of course UNTRUE!!......

pdevredis

There was a way, David--you could have erased your previous comment when you added this one, and the tallies would have stayed the same! :-)))

david06520

[oooof it's a dilemma unresolvable: I can't comment on how this puzzle is now 30 pieces - 60 comments - 90 solves without making my comment untrue -- ack - eek - that does not compute...]

Dogdaze

WOOF!.......Yes, I have been offered many sacrificial gobs..........YUMMY!........(woof).......

juneshone

Hopefully!

david06520

No, the Elvish one hasn't got it quite right! In reality they made sacrificial gobs to offer to the dogs! Isn't that correct, dogdazed?

lelabugosi

Aaaah...mystery solved!......

Elfie

They have made some new sacrificial bogs and offer them to the gods, I think, but don't say it too loud it's a secret!!

lelabugosi

I think a head count is called for........

juneshone

if only we could get back to using real food. Unfortunately most people work nowadays and come home to lots of chores so slinging something in the microwave is quicker. We are mired down here in the horsemeat scandal, they still can't find what happened to all the heads.

david06520

{wot, no tadpole wine?}

lelabugosi

(she probably avoided pomegranates).................(just sayin')..............

Plumpossum

Oh, and sugar, too.

Plumpossum

My mom's food "pyramid" mainly consisted of butter, salt, starch; secondarily of veggies and other good stuff. She died just two weeks short of her 102nd birthday.

lelabugosi

Nighty-night, juicy, gorgeous Junee.....Hee-Hee!........

juneshone

PS forgot to mention, nothing comes out of a tin and the stuff in the freezer all came from our family butcher, we like to know exactly what is in there. Having said that we don't grow our own food so anything could have happened. I won't eat spinach or lettuce for that reason. One can only do one's best, so don't have nightmares. which reminds me it is that time again, have fun all

lelabugosi

We crossed, double-batter.........yes, I see you have both returned.......

juneshone

you'd be very welcome, there's dark berries to start - blue, black,straw variety along with red grapes just wash and eat all you want, then the sammich - and having been so good at lunchtime anything goes for the evening meal when somebody else does the cooking. I love food.

lelabugosi

I think it best if we all go to juicy, gorgeous Junee's place for tea.........And Buubba's of course, for dinners....
Dancing-pecan......Your passport photo is highly original.......

twoclubs

Back to the basics: POPCORN!! It's fun, it's easy, it's buttery and it lasts until your fingers are licked and the next kettle is fired up. Just add salt or butter or tadpole wine for those Conny Sores! Hi Lela, I return once again.

Robbiel

June I cook or prepare whatever anyone wants, so no problem. Jig is right, just read the ingredients on some of these items.......scary!! Our family all eat fresh produce, not much out of cans and virtually nothing prepared out of a box, except cereal, rice and pasta. However I eat too much and I use lots of salt, butter, olive oil and mayo!! Like Hanne said though a lot of problems are in your genes because I know quite a few people who ate 'healthy' and exercised regularly end up with heart attacks etcetera.
BUT.........Bring on the Colonel............I like his chicken!!!!!

jignut

June, you are so right. You ARE what you eat! I just rented "Hungry for Change." It is a 90 minute documentary that exposes secrets the diet, weight loss and food industries don't want consumers to know about: deceptive strategies designed to keep you coming back for more and keeping people from having the body and health they want. It sounds like it would be a bit dry and boring but I found it very interesting and inspiring.

Elfie

I've always been rather sceptical about being what you eat!! We had a good friend who had a stroke, he ate many vegetables. You see what I'm getting at??

patsquire

What!?! No fried Spam sammiches? No grilled peanut butter? (Just like a grilled cheese, but warm tasty peanut butter instead.)

juneshone

all are welcome, my speciality is very simple, just like me. radish,cucumber,spring onion, celery and tomato - juicy and gorgeous they do say you are what you eat, hopefully!

david06520

woo-hoo we shall all gather at Junee's Tea for lovely sammiches

patsquire

Mmmmmm, the Colonel's chicken is welcome around here any time. It wouldn't take much trying to ring up a sale to me!

lelabugosi

I mean, thecolonel........He'll just try to sell us 'chicken'.......

Elfie

Who, Lela?? But of course, why shouldnt Robbie and I make things like that for you???? Easy done, isn't it Robbie??

juneshone

I don't like baloney or any of those cold cuts please could I have a steak sandwich? Or even a salad one with no lettuce? chopped boiled egg with cheese? crushed plain crisps? No, OK I'll take my business elsewhere

lelabugosi

Oh nooooo!....He'll come back!.........

Elfie

Oooookay!!! We'll do that!!!

Robbiel

Actually I really like the Colonel's chicken, you lot pig out on baloney and I'll get some of that delicious crunchy chicken!!

Elfie

Ohhhh, Robbie it sounds GREAT - no chickens now I hope??!!!!

lelabugosi

Yes, thousands-of-cakes....that's what some of the locals thought!....
I'm sure you will, Bubba..........(BTW, I must apologise for inadvertently sticking darts in your stomach).....(hee-hee!)..........

thecolonel

Food?........How's about a tasty chicken?......

Robbiel

Did you mention food Lela?! I'll make a load of Baloney sandwiches!!

cakes1947

I think the ''Big Bad Wolf'' went to Unclebluebottle's house and huffed & puffed & blew the house down!! Thanks Lela!! :)))
(time, 1:34)

lelabugosi

I see the mad cyclist has returned......WITH MORE BALONEY!!.......

Elfie

Whatever circles you are circling around in, this word is pronounced in French - as it is a French word you see - exactly the way that octomomma does!! Actually it's NOT a question of circles but of practical language!!

jignut

You mean like this.............................?

http://www.jigidi.com/created.php?id=5GBZQYF6

octomom

You'd better watch your language, young man, or else you might find yourself transformed into a baby wearing diapers. Just sayin'....

patsquire

Typically plebian, octonano. I'm speaking of more refined circles than you travel in, and offer only this one exception: some of the less academic of us ad the cryptic "r" sound, changing "cone-WASS-see-ay" to "corn-WASS-see-ay." It's still acceptable and looked upon as faintly quaint.

Shinymonth, man, yeah, cool man.

juneshone

thought he was on about Courvoisier and Dubbonet, we only imbibe of the tadpole wine in this neck of the woods man

octomom

Wrong, beared bloke. It's con-ah-sur (as in Big Sur, which you certainly are...).

patsquire

There are two bikes right there in plain sight in front of Uncle B.'s house!!! How blind can a dumb blonde be???

wheresmybike

Has anyone seen my bike?.........
(I see that horrible lump of lard has disappeared!).......

patsquire

There's that word again, "connoisseur" and this time out of the mouth of the lelabug himself.

But it has been so long since it has appeared here in Bugosiland that I feel some, or many, or most current Bugosilanders will not have had the benefit of my pronunciation guide. (I am a world renowned pronouncing pronunciater of foreign-type words.)

So here you go: cone-WASS-see-ay. Practice it: cone-WASS-see-ay. And as long as we've come this far we may as well go back over some of the others I have explicated in the past. A man may be referred to (I usually am) as "suave and debonaire." That's "swayve" and "duh-BONE-yay" for those not very familiar with these fancy foreign-type ways of talking.

You're welcome!

unclebluebottle

I'm 38.........................(bzzzzzzzzzzzz)............

lelabugosi

Ah yes, david-many-numbers...."Googly is your friend"............
raincoat-infusion........unclebluebottle likes to take care of his appearance........then again, he could be in possession of the secret of eternal life, as nobody knows how old he is........

teamac

Uncle B ages very well I must say.
He does not appear to have aged a day through all the years.
Is this a testamonial for the tadpole spirits?

david06520

Why thank you, Lelabugs, very kind also as well and so forth. Really all that is required is to Googly on the term "Tadpole Wine Poetry" and all manner of worse -- erm, VERSE -- comes up.

lelabugosi

And so is Bluebottle!............

gemstone

And Bob's your uncle!

lelabugosi

Sounds fine then, Plumpy-marsupial.......
Thank you david-many-numbers, for more inspiring verse.....you are truly an expert connoisseur with much knowledge and expertly expert in the expertise of knowingly knowing all there is to know about the scant existence of versification in verse appertaining to Tadpole Wine and its derivatives.........

Plumpossum

Does the possumcopter get off the ground? Of course; how else would it be found high up in the branches of a tree?

david06520

In the greenest of our valleys,
By good angels tenanted, (bzzz bzzzz)
Once a fair and stately palace --
Radiant palace -- reared its head. (bzz bzz bzzzz)
In the monarch Thought's dominion --
It stood there filled with Tadpole Wine (bzz bzz bzzzzz)
Never seraph spread a pinion
Over fabric half so Fine. (bzz bzzzzzz bz bzz bz bzzzzzzzz)

lelabugosi

If you mean houses. he just rented after this........and moved a lot.........If, on the other hand and foot, you mean chairycopters, then I think we can say that he has had many ups......and downs........(in fact many more downs than ups)......

Robbiel

What a smashing house that is/was Lela and UncleB certainly looks quite chipper about the whole situation! I would be ranting and raving!! Obviously he stuck to the wicket as they say and eventually built more that were successful?!

lelabugosi

Piler-upper.......Quite possibly, though I don't recall seeing a chairycopter in 'The Wizard Of Oz'........and unclebluebottle assures me that he has never met Gudy Jarland......

stacker

Do you think Hollywood might of used this as a set for a scene out of The Wizard of Oz?

lelabugosi

Plumpy.....Does it get off the ground?......

Plumpossum

Possumcopter is available to rent. . . .
