  1. This was great. I was reading it and laughing. . and then I got to the laughing at farts. That’s totally killed me. Bogey was passes out on the sofa . . and he got up and went to bed because I was ‘disturbing’ him. (the worlds biggest farty bum)

  2. one of these days I’ll learn to proof read my comments before I post them.

    He was passed out & snoring on the sofa when I burst out laughing. The dirty look, then the stomp up the stairs . . .too much. sniff, still laughing.

  3. I think Maggie could surpass Bogey in the killer fart department. She is small but filled with deadly gases.
