Jones of the valleys

Short conversation from yesterday:
 
Mrs M: (looking at her phone) “Blimey, Tom Jones is 80 years old today”
 
Me: “So? It’s not unusual…”
 
Mrs M: …………………………………………….. Nothing. Silence.
 
I wonder why I bother, sometimes.

      What, she’s an eighty year-old Welshman?

    I have a Tom Jones anecdote from a friend who was stage manager at a venue which he toured at. I can’t repeat it. Much bad wordage. But he’s apparently very charming, when he stops cussing

    • Masher

      Apparently.
      Is it Jones The Voice or Jones The Potty-mouth?

      • brennig

        I think he’s Jones the Voice. We’re all Jones the Potty Mouth

      You could always redact the bad words but would not be much use looking at a totally black page.😎

    From earlier today:
    Mrs M: (looking out at the back garden, in which she has been most industrious these recent weeks) “I can’t reach it, so could you have a go at trimming the climatus?”
    Me: “Well, I’ll give it a go, but being a man, I doubt if I’ll be able to find it.”
    Mrs M: ………………………………………………………………..Nothing.

      When I knew Tom Jones, he was Tommy Woodward. Not many of us were impressed with him.

        Sorry – missed a bit – may I safely assume that the plant was Clematis???

        • Masher

          Indeed you may, TA, but gardening interests me so little, I couldn’t even be bothered to look up the correct spelling.

    • Alan

      Stop. It bloody hurts when I laugh at this time in the morning.

    That just made me spit my tea out laughing.

      I knew it: you’re the one I should have married!
