AT LAST A MYSTERY YOUR THANET BLOGGER

I eagerly grasped our 'freebie' midweek Your Thanet this afternoon to see if we had yet another offering from a beseiged/ shut down/ temprarily suspended or whatever Thanet Blogger. I was glad to see that the paper has returned to a 'mystery' blogger after 3 weeks of 'Simes' but perhaps the item would have been better if it had been written with a touch of that Zen thing.

Did some comments here on 6 March and by ECR on 20 March (halo slipped on that one, Dickie, old chap!), perhaps make the point? Anyway, I would like to see Thanetlife and One Voice return so that Thanetstrife can pack up shop. I wonder if Your Thanet would like a Bertie Biggles article and do they pay one for it? If they do I would be happy to be their 'mystery' blogger for 3 weeks.

Not as much as yours did, Bertie old chap, but we'll gloss over that. The problem with yourthanetblogger is that they only accept articles from named bloggers, so, er, if you like I could give them your name. I'm not the only one who leaves trails of breadcrumbs! Oops, I never was great at glossing.

On a serious note, though, I would also like to see Thanet Life return since, as we all know, without my relentless fictional content about Simes, much of my blog simply wouldn't exist. Oh, er, except his blog currently doesn't exist, and, er, mine does. That's knocked that theory on the head then.

More like a whole loaf left by me! Yes, negative treatment of that bally Council Tax Bill was quite revealing; black marker pens just aren't what they used to be! Thanks for the warning by the way and I am sure I can rely on your discretion!
Will Simes' urge to blog eventually get the better of him? I hope so.

Can't help thinking that the caricatures of Bertie Biggles and Eastcliff Richard have been penned by the same hand - their style is remarkably similar. Which leads me to think that ECR and BB could be one and the same person? Or is ther an artist out there catering for a growing market in blogger caricatures?

No, Nick we are not the same person and my cartoon is nowhere near as professional or rakish as Dickie's!

Sorry to have sounded heavy handed BB, but you don't seem to have an email address, otherwise I would have tipped you orf privately. As you know, I am a fervent supporter of all things anonymous when it comes to blogging. You can rely on my discretion.

And no, Nick, BB and I are not one and the same person, not even in a cartoon sense. My portrait was penned by my old cartoonist chum Snailspace, whereas Bertie's appears to have been drawn by a bossed-eyed tortoise with Parkinsons (no offence BB).

Sorry to disappoint you all in your constant search for enligtenment but it wasn't my turn this week! Nothing mysterious about it at all!

You should try "Not" blogging for a while it's really quite restful!

Bertie biggles said...

How nice to have an 'official', visit Simon. When you have had a decent rest, please get Thanetlife up and running again.

As for the cartoon, Dickie old chap, no offence taken. Norah's comments were " Well I'm only a 'char'-lady, Mr Biggles, not an arty-farty person, what do you expect?"

I'm glad that the great one speaks of enligtenment! Zen and the art of spelling comes to mind!

Was that a sequel to Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, 23.06?
