Now if truth be told, we all suffer from misfortunes but in all honesty I’ve always found that other people’s misfortunes to be a lot funnier than my own.
So I had to have a good laugh about the woman who accidentally dropped her cellphone down a toilet in a national forest over in Washington State in the USA.
In an effort to retrieve it she initially disassembled the toilet seat and used dog leads to try to get the phone back. When this failed she decided to tie herself to the lead and lower herself into the toilet.
Sadly the lead did not prove to have sufficient strength and she fell head first down into the loo. Well at least she managed to retrieve the phone which was fortunate for her as she was then able to use it to summon help.
Arriving on the scene not a moment too soon, firefighters passed down blocks for her to stand on so that she could reach a harness which they then used to pull her out.
Not surprisingly she had to be washed down and was strongly encouraged to seek medical attention after everything she had been exposed to.
Later in the programme I was joined by Margaret Mills who’s subject today was an Essex author, apparently famous in his day who rejoiced in the name of HENRY DE VERE STACKPOLE.
He ought to have been famous just for his name, but his most well known book was THE BLUE LAGOON, which was made into a film well after the author was walking on this earth. However he developed a friendship with a man who is far better known these days, none other than HG WELLS.
Listen here to learn what Margaret had to tell me on this subject: –
I look forward tom seeing you again next week,
