GUARDIAN ANGEL: The latest from our girl about town...

Angel felt slightly bullied the other day when she walked past a well-known retail outlet in Spalding. A box outside full of catalogues didn’t invite her to help herself, but instructed ‘Take one’. She didn’t.

* On the subject of signs, Angel drove past one recently which read: “Polite notice: Horses use this road – drive carefully.”

It wasn’t a polite notice because it didn’t say “please”.

nImagine Angel’s alarm the other evening when she came across a swan who had decided to take an evening snooze not on the riverbank in Spalding, but almost in the middle of the road. Angel got ’im indoors on the job and he soon gently urged the swan to a safer spot away from traffic.

* A male colleage of Angel’s had a little panic one evening last week when he realised – the evening before and far too late to do anything about it – that he had forgotten his wedding anniversary.

His little girl had a solution though: “Just Tippex it off tomorrow’s date on the calendar and put it down for the next day.

“That gives you all day tomorrow to get a present and a card.”

If only life was so simple...

* Angel had to laugh at a press release that winged its way to Guardian Towers yesterday.

The story was about a young man who had joined the Fire Service and was accompanied by several pictures.

The first picture opened was entitled “with hose”, which was fair enough as it was an accurate description.

The second picture was entitled “undress” and showed the new recruit in full uniform.

Someon’e wishful thinking...?
