The Joe Murphy Column



We were getting a new carpet laid in bedroom and prior to the fitter coming I decided to help him out by cutting up the old carpet and taking it out so he could come and just lay the new one. But things did not go to plan I put a new blade in the Stanley knife and cut the first piece no problem. Then the second piece I cut the knuckle joint of my finger on my left hand; blood everywhere; and Margaret put a dressing on it and phoned the doctor’s surgery. Low and behold they could not help me and advised me to go to Accident and Emergency at the Victoria hospital in Kirkcaldy. Every day we hear on the news about the NHS and the amount of waiting time patients are seen this was only a cut finger and surely the surgery could have put some dumbbells or stiches in. Anyway we then had to wait for the carpet to be laid and then go to the hospital and after 1 ½ hours was attended to. With the nurse putting 5/ 6 dumbbells and a dressing on my finger and informed me that I had not to get it wet for at least 5 days, (see photograph), ‘No washing dishes’ I asked and with a smile was told ‘No’ you have to take it easy. I’m now on the mend and have started typing my article once more.

Pictorial

With all the upheaval of empting the above bedroom and moving items etc. when putting them back on checking my collection of Pictorials I have discovered that I’m short of number 560. If anyone has a spare or copy they no longer wish; I will buy this from them and pay for carriage; and if I find my own edition I will return their copy back to them if they so wish. Hope someone can help me out my phone number is 01592 770331.






This week’s Photos

The first is of my grandson Liam with the SFA famous Scottish Cup; this was on display at Glenrothes and his mum took his picture. There was a competition with FIFA 18 computer game on who could score the fastest goal within an hour. Everyone who had a turn was allowed a time span and the winner would win a prize; low and behold 11 year old Liam was winning the prize right up to the last person who was 16 and beat him by 6 seconds for the first prize of £50. Liam won a football with Pele name on the side of it. He was over the moon and I assisted him blow the ball up before he went out for a kick about. My next picture is of the BICC committee taken at their presentation last weekend my thanks to President John Tyerman for this photo. The third picture is of fellow scribe Terry Peart with my good mate Guy Reed which was also taken at the BICC presentation.

Joe’s Joke

A London lawyer runs a stop sign and gets pulled over by an Irish cop. He thinks that he is smarter than the cop because he is a lawyer from LONDON and is certain that he has a better education then any Irish cop. He decides to prove this to himself and have some fun at the Irish cop's expense!Irish cop says, "License and registration, please."London Lawyer says, "What for?"Irish cop says, "Ye did nae come to a complete stop at the stop sign."London Lawyer says, "I slowed down, and no one was coming."Irish cop says, "Ye still did nae come to a complete stop, License and registration, please"London Lawyer says, "What's the difference?"Irish cop says, "The difference is, ye huv te come to complete stop, that's the law. License and registration, please!"London Lawyer says, "If you can show me the legal difference between slow down and stop, I'll give you my license and registration and you give me the ticket. If not, you let me go and don't give me the ticket."Irish cop says, "Sounds fair. Exit your vehicle, sir."The London Lawyer exits his vehicle.The Irish cop takes out his baton and starts beating him on the back and head and the lawyer starts shouting out. The Irish cop says, "Dae ye want me to stop or just slow down?"
