Time to meet the “War Office”

The “War Office” also at times referred to as the W.O. is also known as my wife; she accepts this epithet, I believe, with great pride although you’d never believe it.

No doubt she will appear often in my “Blogs” so it is as well for you to be prepared. She is a formidable person standing all of 147 cm (4’10″ to the uneducated) but what she lacks in height she makes up for in other ways; so much so that I’ve been known to tremble at times.

It is impossible to argue with the W.O. because you can never win.

A case in point: last October around lunchtime on a Friday I suddenly lost all sight in my right eye, I went completely blind in just the one eye. I called out to the W.O. who was tending some of her plants in the garden and told her.

In a way I found it quite amusing and interesting and was speculating on the horrors of being completely blind. I didn’t know what was happening quite frankly.

Immediately she instructed me to get into the car she was taking me to the hospital, I told her not to worry the sight was returning, which it did fully after a minute or so of the blindness.

She told me to be quiet and to get into the car in a soft threatening tone. So coward that I am ( I’ve always subscribed to the adage “It’s better to be a live coward than a dead hero”) I said no more and did as I was told.

Within half an hour of arriving at the hospital I was admitted; it appears that I’d had a stroke, minor, but nonetheless a stroke.

Perhaps I may go into the aftermath later but suffice to say this will give you some idea of the War Offices character. She is not to be trifled with when she says jump I do!

  2. I always felt your wife and i would become fast friends based on all the times you have referred to her. She really must be something to be able to make you walk a straight line.

    She’s tiny, a genuine mighty mouse it seems.

    1. A lot of water has gone under the SHB since I wrote that in 2012 Yvonne and times have changed.
      I don’t know how that got reblogged, it’s not showing on my computer. If it did get reblogged somehow it was purely accidental.’


      1. Maybe TWO did it!


        1. Damned if I know whats going on Yvonne; it’s definitely not showing up on mine

    1. Something very odd going on here Yvonne. Had disperser still been following my stuff I’d have suspected he was up to no good but as it is I’m at a loss

      1. Pure of heart and mind, I be.
        I suspect this is another case of someone not being on the ball (or even knowing where it is) with this blogging stuff.


  5. I’ve been waiting for a formal introduction—so glad you finally decided to let us in! She sounds marvelous, and lucky too, to have such an appreciative guy in her life!


    1. She’s changed a lot since I wrote and posted that 7 or 8 years ago 😛
