Fantastical Fantasies of a Scafell Mogolob

Flippety-jippety, my fat hen,
we went up Scafell
then I went up again.
The crack around this,
my friends, is unique,
so into this tale
I'll give you a peek...

Al and Sarah, Dave and Jeff
(all who get quickly
out of breff),
I had to drag around, you see
(to the challenge, at first,
they responded with glee),
Al and Dave were chompin' to lead,
whilst Sarah and Jeff, some help did need...
Al looked smartish and Dave had a map,
but within a few feet, he started to flap,
Al soon looked worn and Jeff had a limp,
Sarah kept moanin',(a right little wimp).

So here was my chance
to harness my skills
to be the Big Leader
and champ-yon those hills,
I 'ad all the gear,
me cv is strong,
I marched to the front
and ad-dressed my throng.
A sorry sight, bedraggled and bent,
they needed coaxin'
but on we went...
as Sarah she crumbled,
Al, he mumbled,
Jeff looked confused
and Dave, he just bumbled.
But get there we did,
a summit quite fine,
yet even up there, they did nowt
but whine,
whinge and croak, and splutter and cough,
but I held my own,
and me Cub Cap did doff,
yes, all those years of scouting came good,
as I pulled those four down,
all covered in mud,
(Kip, Rebel and Mollie, were boundin',
in contrast,
(ashamed of their charges,
to me they stuck steadfast...)

Carpe Diem!   on 07/09/17 @ 11:20 said:


Al offered his best,
but his stick was too frail,
mine sailed away,
he started to flail,
we couldn't spot
his meagre craft,
he burst into tears,
as the rest of us laughed...

Slippery-dippery, didgery-doo,
so now we come to you-know-who,
she TALKED the walk (and brought her dog),
but competitively-wise,
was in a fog...

Sarah's palm, 'twas in the air,
but when I looked,
it was nae there,
not knowing me strength,
ah'd slammed it down,
and foresaid Sarah
looked a clown...
At table-tennis, she fared e'en worse,
'twas almost like
a dreadful curse,
of trying hard wi' nowt to show,
"I'm off to bed,
I gotta go..."
proverbial tail,
between her legs,
an' there was me,
left wi' the dregs...

Carpe Diem!   on 07/09/17 @ 11:22 said:


yep, Al, Dave and Jeff,
now drowsin' in stupor,
(looks like they're
in need of BUPA).
So ah left them there,
red-faced and supine,
an' Scafell on me own,
returned to climb...
up in an hour,
an' down in less
(unlike this morning's
hopeless mess),
not held back wi' tales of woe,
but a springy chicken,
wi' sprightly toe,
leaping over clumps and rocks,
an' I did it all
in me bright red socks,
ah din't have to listen
to those four's ills,
now I call me-self
"OD's Bear Grills"!

ENOUGH... let's get ready for Everest...Jx

Carpe Diem!: Jonathan, what can I say to this? Well done, although you may expect a few repercussions!
It might add a little spice to the arm wrestling?

The Magic Mushrooms, which you won, for coming SECOND, out of two in Pooh Sticks...were meant to help your literacy skills...not cause you to ad lib all this fantasy stuff.

Al and I care so much about you, even we wouldn't let you try and find Scafell Pike on your own, never mind climb it on your Cub Badge Map Skills Course. Do you actually own a map?

Lastly, Crap Diem!

I have checked the spelling, to the best of my ability...and it all looks right today.

Carpe Diem!   on 07/09/17 @ 13:59 said:

TrotOn: hmmmm ...spelling yes, punctuation debatable e.g. Skills'

Carpe Diem!   on 07/09/17 @ 14:00 said:

TrotOn: ps I am not even gonna bother answering whether I own a map or not ('s confidential...)

TrotOn   on 07/09/17 @ 14:05 said:

Carpe Diem!: That's a NO then?

TrotOn   on 07/09/17 @ 14:06 said:

What's "gonna" mean anyway?

You were a teacher? No wunda I can't spell.

Carpe Diem!   on 07/09/17 @ 14:09 said:

TrotOn: it's called a colloqweealism...I'll explain next time we meet

TrotOn   on 07/09/17 @ 14:22 said:

Carpe Diem!: Those mushrooms must still be working!

You've just lost it son....are you feeling OK?

Carpe Diem!   on 07/09/17 @ 14:26 said:

TrotOn: "son???" "SON???"...omg ...I knew it...this is my worst nightmare ...

TrotOn   on 07/09/17 @ 14:28 said:

TrotOn   on 07/09/17 @ 14:30 said:

Carpe Diem!: I will buy you a lolly next time I see keep you silent.
I might need a DNA sample from you...I was never that good at English...but always had an inbuilt sense of direction.

Carpe Diem!   on 07/09/17 @ 15:21 said:

TrotOn: sorry ... my DNA is sacred ...

TrotOn   on 07/09/17 @ 16:27 said:

Carpe Diem!: Cheers but I have yours left plenty of sweat on your beloved walking pole!!
I had a nice coffee the quiet side of Ullswater.

catwalker   on 07/09/17 @ 17:02 said:

I can only imagine the two of you together in real time

Carpe Diem!   on 07/09/17 @ 17:05 said:

catwalker: really??? I can't

Carpe Diem!   on 07/09/17 @ 17:10 said:

TrotOn: David, I don't break sweat when I walk with you...

TrotOn   on 07/09/17 @ 17:27 said:

Carpe Diem!: I promise to wipe your brow when you and Sarah have the arm wrestling match!
Plenty DNA then

TrotOn   on 07/09/17 @ 17:35 said:

catwalker: Thanks...but I don't want to imagine meeting him again, anytime soon!

Carpe Diem!   on 07/09/17 @ 17:59 said:

TrotOn: come on D ... now I know you found the lessons hard....

TrotOn   on 07/09/17 @ 18:09 said:

Carpe Diem!: Yes....I are right...the mushrooms must be affecting me too.

So long, as you promise NEVER to lead a walk on your own!

Try and start with a long piece of string...then work up from there!
As you lost the whole cafe, the other day, when it was the only building in miles....I do get worried.

Just good that Al and I could show you where you left...your "chopstick"

hillmale   on 07/09/17 @ 21:57 said:

Cat 'i had to share a billet with these two in the lakes 'me n Al were full of despair lol.
Thank God we had two dogs to talk too lol x

Carpe Diem!   on 07/09/17 @ 22:16 said:

hillmale: they were the only ones who could understand what you were saying!

TrotOn   on 07/09/17 @ 22:27 said:

Carpe Diem!: Calm down Son....who are you picking a fight with now?

TrotOn   on 07/09/17 @ 22:27 said:

Carpe Diem!: How many mushrooms did you scoff?

hillmale   on 08/09/17 @ 14:07 said:

Don't you worry about me T'on ' I'll give the little blighter a man hug when I see him lol.
Good to see you guy's getting out n about ' I'm busy at the mo ' but should catch up soon x

TrotOn   on 08/09/17 @ 17:05 said:

Carpe Diem!: Rumour has it you are in hiding?

What's worse...hilmale giving the little blighter a manhug OR Sarah snapping your little wrist at arm wrestling?

I still have Al's bag of cash on the outcome!!

Do you know how to apologise to everyone?

TrotOn   on 08/09/17 @ 17:22 said:

Carpe Diem!: On second thoughts....are you lost again??

Janhk   on 08/09/17 @ 19:35 said:

Really... what are you lot on! Is it a competition?

Carpe Diem!   on 08/09/17 @ 20:11 said:

Janhk: I've had to put up with this all week! Thank goodness the parole ends on Sunday

TrotOn   on 09/09/17 @ 20:27 said:

Janhk: Carpe Diem! was awarded a prize for coming second out of two in Pooh Sticks.
That's simply LAST with me, but we all felt sorry for the poor awarded him a carton of magic mushrooms, to help him produce a good poem...not this fantasy stuff he has come up with.

alpine hiker   on 10/09/17 @ 10:40 said:

Could I say Whine Diem, sorry! Carpe Diem that I won Pooh stick race which is one reason I'm a commander and you are bilge boy. The captain has yet to confirm your promotion to assistant Quarter master.....

Carpe Diem!   on 10/09/17 @ 11:02 said:

alpine hiker: it's "SENIOR" QM...I realise your Pooh Sticks has hit you hard and I'm thinking of you

Carpe Diem!   on 10/09/17 @ 11:03 said:

alpine hiker: oh and please place the word "debacle" after "Sticks" x

TrotOn   on 10/09/17 @ 21:38 said:

Carpe Diem!: Your parole ends on which Sunday? You mentioned the third Sunday, March 2018?
Ullswater Steamers are advertising a position of SQM on their boats next year. Are you applying? I won't say you lost Pooh Sticks by the width of the bridge to Al. Did you put yours in at the same time?

Carpe Diem!   on 10/09/17 @ 22:29 said:

TrotOn: if you'd been awake you'd know the answers to all these questions! You would also know that they're confidential

TrotOn   on 10/09/17 @ 22:34 said:

Carpe Diem!: I have noted, that when pressured to tell the truth, suddenly, all information becomes confidential.

Did you actually pass the entrance exam for Bilge Boy?

I need to see the documentation...not like last time...when you had written it yourself on toilet tissue

TrotOn   on 10/09/17 @ 22:37 said:

......and soiled, at that!!!!!!
