Hee hee you're too funny Lgs! Loved this and of course the last bit of truth was fabulously construed - or is that misconstrued...hee hee

Ruth said...

Open Grove Claudia said...

You have been found out! Thank you for all your wiki work. Oh, I just assumed the squirrel was you! ;)

Thanks for the laugh!

Claire said...

Kat said...

Hey LGS... And I really thought that a computer spat out the money! Wow! How naive could I possibly be! What would I do without LGS! LOL

(Maybe I should learn to proofread before posting comments in the future... thus the deleted comment) :-)

Marja said...

I knew you were prolific but I did not know you maintained Wikipedia all by yourself.

Hey, since you've been reading some of the chapters through these weeks, I wanted you to know that the "title chapter" about the Duncan Phyfe is now posted. Hope you enjoy.

Margaret said...

Hehe, I knew it. But some of those "employees" are strangely quiet when the machine eats my money card, money or gives me the wrong thing.

marja,
when the moon is full on dark winter nights, when you walk in the deepest darkest forests, you might hear a strange sound......the sound of a squirrel on his computer keyboard!

geewits,
stay with the Lone Grey Squirrel as He reveals that Big Bird fro Sesame Street really isn't a bird at all!

Lone Grey Squirrel said...

tom,
Neither did I....but apparently when the moon is full, some strange power overcomes me. All I know is I am so tired the next morning!

margaret,
Well, I think they are trained not to admit their mistakes. What you should do is talk to the machine and tell them you have mace and they have 10 second to come out. Of course that could be embarrassing if my theory of the guy inside isn't true!

Josie said...

LGS, That's wonderful...! You're a hoot!

MedStudentWife said...

AHHHAA !! As I suspected !! Now I feel vindicated for telling people that the printer doesn't work because they didn't feed the gerbils enough!

Lone Grey Squirrel said...

josie,
Thanks but aren't hoots for owls?

msw,
Gerbils, you say? Well, I've learned something new! I was thinking squids ....you know, cause they have ink!

MedStudentWife said...

oopss..meant to qualify my statement. Printers of old technology,like dot-matrix. Them thar new fangled ink-jet use squid technology

Lone Grey Squirrel said...

msw,
HarHarHar! Good reply.
