A-Z Challenge Day 8

Post 1648. Monday April 9



I saw Rosey in the hardware shop looking at buckets.

“What are you after?” I asked.

“Well” she said, “there’s a hole in my bucket ….”

“…. dear Liza, dear Liza” I sang out. It was greeted with a blank stare

“As I was saying, the canopy over my balcony leaks and I use my bucket to catch drips. Yesterday when it rained the bucket was empty and the floor was wet. That’s how I know there’s a hole in my …. “

“…. bucket, dear Liza, dear….”

Shut up” she shouted “This is serious

“Sorry,” I said.

“I also want a bucket to put my list in”

“What list?”

“My bucket list”.

I pointed out that you don’t actually keep it in a bucket, it’s only called a bucket list because…. because…. then I realised I didn’t actually know!

“What’s going on your list?” I asked

“One. Learn golf”

“So you can get a hole in one?”

As I was saying, two, go into space”

“Careful you don’t fall down I black hole!” I quipped.

At last, she began to laugh!

I’ve got a hole joke!” she said.

“Better than half a joke” I chuckled. She ignored me and continued.

“A man walked past a hole in a wall and heard a voice coming from it. It said, ‘six six six’.  The man peeped in and a fist popped out and bopped him on the nose. ‘Seven seven seven’ said the voice! Do you get it?”

“Yes” I groaned

“I don’t,” said Rosey.

    I had surgery several years ago and joke that I really do have a hole in my head. I’m wondering about Rosey.

      I sometimes think there’s a hole where her brain should be, but don’t tell I told you that! Cheers, Denise.

    Hi Keith – poor Rosey … she really does have a problem doesn’t she – but will she come right … still she laughs her way out of her ‘holes’ … take care and here’s to a good week for Rosey and her ramblin’ … cheers Hilary

      Fortunately, she doesn’t see it as a problem – she just loves life no matter what happens along the way! Thanks Hilary.

    Haha poor Rosie, she has a problem and you only use it for jokes 😁

      Thanks Shilpa. I just hope I can keep on being witty til the end of the month!

      I could explain it to you, but it’s not really worth the effort! Thanks Sue.

      She’s almost double that age! Jolly, energetic and best enjoyed in small doses! Thanks.

    Perfect post for a Monday morning! I have the hole in the bucket song stuck through my head now.

    You might want to investigate her theory that there is a hole in the bucket. I suspect she kicked the bucket while it was on her balcony, causing the bucket to no longer be under the canopy hole.

      You could be right, it would not surprise me one little bit. All together now…there’s a hole in my bucket, dear Liza, dear Liza…!

    The holey spirit might be frowning on you, Keith. That was a bunch of very bad, but hilarious puns. Thanks for the laughs 🙂

    So many hole jokes crammed into a short span. Good job. And yes, I was singing right along.

    Wholly snortable – which I’m sure would please Rosey entirely. 🙂


    • Keith's Ramblings Apr 9, 2018 / 15:43

      Funny you should mention that. She is inclined to snort when she laughs. Apparently, she was known as Rosey Piggy Pinkerton ar school!

    Haven’t seen posts from you in so long. Good to learn your sense of humor is cooking along just fine. Or should I say, wholly fine!

      Sorry about that! I heard someone singing it in the street just now – they must have read my story!


    • Keith's Ramblings Apr 9, 2018 / 16:03

      It’s one of those jokes some people get and some don’t as I’ve found from the comment.s. Rosey didn’t, but that’s hardly surprising. She known for telling great jokes that she doesn’t understand herself!

        Is she for real? Else I would say great imagination and if not I would say I love her anyway

      Pleased you enjoyed it. Thanks so much for sharing my little piece of nonsense

    So much fun. I may be in Rosie’s corner on this one. Does the number refer to the number of people who’ve been punched?
