- CRITTER TALK
- NEWS I FIND INTERESTING
He’s the reason. Cough Cough Obama…no chance.
The English love America most recently purely because of Ty Pennington.
His show knocks down crap houses lived in by people with cancer, or, after losing husbands or wives to cancer, or finding themselves with crippled husbands or wives etc etc etc.
Recently it was a Dallas S.W.A.T. Lieutenant left crippled after a shooting.
Everybody shouts a lot, all the appropriate towns people arrive and houses are demolished and rebuilt in a few days.
Then everybody shouts a bit more and the family receiving the new house come home from a vacation.
Then they shout a lot and, often, burst into tears.
Then they go inside their new home and more shouting and crying ensues.
Dead husbands / wives appear in newly arranged picture frames or, alternatively, monuments of some kind are erected in the so called back yard – which is generally larger than Wales.
We, the people of England adore this show. Well, I do anyroad…
If nothing else, it tests our ‘stiff upper lip’ to the highest degree.
I never cry watching this show.
“My husband died of cancer and left me with 8 kids and a cardboard box”
“My wife died and left me to bring up 19 kids and 5 cats with only $2 in the bank”
No matter. This Englishmans stiff upper lip remains stiff throughout.
If Carol is here when it’s on.
If Carol isn’t here…….I could flood Venice…..
I absolutely adore this show.
If Americans are really even slightly, remotely like the Americans I see in this show then, not only do I love you, I will have your children.
If this show is truly representative of a substantial number of Americans and their willingness to help a neighbour, then you are truly the new land of ‘Hope and Glory’
Just a quicky before I wake tomorrow for my traditional Sunday post…
Night Ty….Stay loud mate. You are a major star in The Dinners household.
…and no….I didn’t cry at tonights episode…Carol was here…I merely had something in my eye….;-)
