  1. Thank you for the mention and for taking me up on my idea for today, Andrew. These were all hilarious and so difficult to choose a favourite one. I think, if I had to, it would be the one about ‘Where do animals go when their tails fall off.’ Brilliant. I love your posts for their ease of reading as, at the moment, I’ve got an attention span of a gnat! Your writings are like a breath of fresh air for me. Thanks for writing and sharing them, my friend 😊.
