Dramatis Personae

t’s occurred to me that the passing visitor to this blog might wonder who the various characters to whom I make passing reference might be. So, for clarification, here’s a provisional cast list, which is subject to change and amendment, and has been organised alphabetically for ease:
(I expect I shall add to this list from time to time)

Arky-ologee Club
Lenham Archaeology Society. It’s probably not (quite) as bad as I describe it. It does have its highlights, but there’s no denying that scrubbling in the dirt for bits of broken pot is an acquired taste. Possibly now gone tits up.

Astro Club
Ashford Astronomical Society. Was bloody excellent once, but like everything in my life the novelty eventually wore off.

Charlie
Acquired grandson. He's a good lad.

Chip
The sobriquet of Chipworthy Chippington O'Lata; so named due to his resemblance of a fragment of potato. Ignore any other tales of the origin of his alias...

Chodbin
The bin in which one deposits chods. Also known as "Trap One", it's somewhere where I often hide when my time could (and should) be more constructively employed elsewhere. The place can actually be "checked into" on Facebook

Daddies Little Angel TM
The most recent fruit of my loin. Can be a tad loud occasionally. Seems to collect animals, and is less than respectful about the world around her in her occasional blogging.

er indoors TM
The darling wife of twenty five years. Not quite as wide in the arse department as once she was. She used to blog too

Fudge
My first grand-dog. Named either for what he looks like or what he does.
Supposedly the dog of “My Boy TM; he spends an awful lot of time with his Grandad.

Gordon Tracy
An advocate of hunting tupperware who seems to spend an awful lot of his time up trees when he is not in rivers

Kite Club
Brighton Kite Fliers. OK – so Brighton is sixty miles away. But they are the best kite club in the south east, and probably in the entire UK. But like everything in my life the novelty eventually wore off

Lacey
My granddaughter. Not entirely sure she approves of me. She likes and loves her old grandad... but approval...? Much like her mother and father in that respect

My Boy TM
The first fruit of my loin. Doesn’t blog, but twits occasionally.

MyFitnessPal
A diet website. It worked for me.

Other Dog
So named because I can't pronounce his name (Buster). Or so I tell my oldest grand-son

Pogo
My youngest grand-dog and brother of Treacle. Spends most of his time with “Daddy’s Little Angel TMwhen not being travel sick

Rear Admiral
An associate who has only recently overcome his fear of maggots and fish.

Sid
My grand-pug. Spends most of his time with “Daddy’s Little Angel TMwhen not having gastric difficulties over my kitchen floor.

"Stormageddon - Bringer of Destruction TM"
Hereditary grandson. The name is something of a clue here. Takes after his mother.

The Man with No Alias (Patent Pending)

A particularly loyal reader who had bookmarked this blog on his phone. However he has no alias. If any other readers have a spare one, they might care to allow him to hire it on holidays and high days

Treacle
The puppy of  "er indoors TM". So why is it me she bites?
