For Kaz

December 16th 2008

My back door is being fitted tomorrow so I will be indisposed. This entrance area has been causing problems for some time now, [causing a bit of a draught] and now a very nice carpenter friend is finally coming to sort me out. He asked me earlier today whether I would like a handle or a ribbed knob. He recomended ribbed so that if my hands are slippery I'll still be able to get a good grip.
Anyhow he is a friendly cheerful chap who seems to know what he's doing and he enjoys dunking gingernuts. When he has finished in the back passage he has promised to work on my front door; he's going to stop it from sticking and he's going to polish my knockers.
Meanwhile, I am helping out with a project to reintroduce beavers into the English countryside. I heard about it on Jeremy Vine radio show yesterday afternoon and it caught my imagination . . .
Here is a short film clip to inform . . .



KAZ said...

Hey Scarlet - I just heard you are to be awarded a special award for the most double entendres in one post.
Congratulations daaahling..
And thankyou for telling us about the 'pain-relieving properties of the beaver's anal gland secretions'.


I think she liked this one.

And finally, Kaz said: Enjoy life.

MJ said...

I once sent a postcard to KAZ of a Canadian beaver.

When she received it, she left a comment on my blog that said...

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!!
The Beaver has landed.
XXXXXXXXXX


I'll never forget her.

Vicus Scurra said...

Thank you

xl said...

Wonderful tribute.

Macy said...

Glad you finally found a man who's good with his hands dollface...

I just looked back at Kaz's blog, and was surprised how long ago it was she was diagnosed. I've been in the habit of hoping she'll be back for awhiles now

Ponita in Real Life said...

We all cherish the memories we've made with her. She was quite the character, one with a beautiful spirit and a sharp wit. What a fitting tribute with Leslie Nielson!

tony said...

Rest In Peace Dear Kaz xxx

Geoff said...

I miss the conversations we used to have. Kaz always had something witty to say and blogging isn't the same without her.

Jimmy said...

A nice tribute Scarlet, very fitting indeed.

Lulu LaBonne said...

This naughtiness certainly appealed to Kaz - and me, I think this post is where I first met you xxx

Dave said...

I think she introduced us, didn't she? I think we really should have a vicars and tarts get-together to thank her.

I'll be the vicar if you like.

Nota Bene said...

No two ways about it...a very fitting and fine tribute

moreidlethoughts said...

Thankyou, Scarlet.

And, Dave...I think Kaz would like to see you as a tart.

Kevin Musgrove said...

Thanks, Scarlet. Lovely tribute.

LL Cool Joe said...

Glad he's starting on the back passage...

Eryl said...

Kaz was one of the cool girls. Too cool, in fact, for me to talk to. I just admired her from a distant wallpapered corner, but always enjoyed her comments here and elsewhere.

wendy house said...

I didn't know Kaz, but your post made me laugh out loud, a wonderful way to treat a friend Wx

Pat said...

It's good to remember her with a smile and you made her smile:)

Rog said...

It's what she would've wanted. And you can't hold Dave against her forever.

eroswings said...

What a wonderful tribute to Kaz!

Rest in Peace, Kaz! We'll never forget you!

eroswings said...

P.S. I hope you had success reintroducing your beaver to the English countryside.

Scarlet Blue said...

Savvy, Mr Scurrilous, Mr XL, Macy, Ponita, Tony, Geoff, Mr Jimmy, Nota Bene, Kev, Mr Cool, Wendy, and Pat

Many thanks for your comments.

MJ: I was looking at my beaver postcard the other day - I bet beavers aren't as cuddly as they look?

Dave, Dinah and Rog: Yes, Kaz did introduce me to Dave... I have just about forgiven her. I think I will petition Dave to dress up as a tart for a post next week. Definitely what Kaz would have wanted!

Eryl: You are one of the cool girls!

Lulu: I keep meaning to go through my blog and make a note of first visits. It always surprises me how long people have been visiting.
Time flies.

Many thanks to all.

Scarlet Blue said...

Mr Swings Thank you!
The English beaver seems partial to Brazilians...

63mago said...

Ah, Brazilians, the masters of ripp off ...

Thank you for yor nice tribute to KAZ.

Nikos said...

Surely a handle would be better especially if your knockers have been polished?

xsN

Scarlet Blue said...

Thank you Mr Mags and I'm sure I need more handles... everyone needs handles, Mr Nikos.

Scarlet Blue said...

...I need something to grip...

Loved it.... well written and in perfect taste.... I am much inspired, although there are many who would say I don't need the encouragement.
Great Blog.... keep it up.{:o)
