A LITTLE STORY FROM JERSEY...

THERE'S ALWAYS TIME TO MAKE A WISH...

Hello beasties!

This week we're back in Jersey - if only briefly...

I've got a fair few photos from that trip to share with you and also a little story that I wrote since I've returned that was inspired by this visit; but first we have details about some more podcast episodes that have been released in the last week or so...

THE SHY LIFE PODCAST - 86: PODCASTING UNDERGROUND...


Here we are for episode EIGHTY SIX - where an emergency at work finds Mr Yeti forced to spend an extended period down in the Library Podcasting Studios. In a way it all sounds quite restful, doesn't it? Only it isn't... I can't say a lot more about events - other than that you will hear from the regulars and - of course, there will be poems! Our next episode, number 87 - will be from our 9th live Pride 48 show, as broadcast on Sunday 18th June 2017! It should be available early next week, but do join us live if you can! Please email me at shyyeti@yahoo.co.uk if you have any comments - you can even send me a sound-file and I'll include it on the show. The music is by Shy Yeti and Luca. All content of this episode is Copyright Paul Chandler, 2017. Episode 86 was recorded between the 28th March and 16th June 2017. 

This episode can be downloaded on iTunes, Acast, Podbean and also from Soundcloud at the following link:

THE SHY LIFE PODCAST - 87: OUR 9TH LIVE PRIDE48 SHOW!!


Here we are for episode EIGHTY SEVEN - where we catch up with Mr Yeti for his ninth live Pride48 show and find out what his regulars have been up to! There are also some rather exciting additions to the chat-room this time! Our next episode, number 88 - is all about matters of a quizzical nature - find out exactly what that means when the episode is released in a few days time! Do join us, won't you?! Please email me at shyyeti@yahoo.co.uk if you have any comments - you can even send me a sound-file and I'll include it on the show. The music is by Shy Yeti and Luca. All content of this episode is Copyright Paul Chandler, 2017.  Episode 87 was recorded live on Sunday 18th June 2017 (4pm EDT / 9pm GMT), with inserts recorded between the 10th and 15th June 2017.

THE SHY LIFE PODCAST - 88: QUIZZED!!!


Here we are for episode EIGHTY EIGHT - where Yeti Uncle John takes the lead in an episode that concerns quiz nights... John, Bettina and Dameus attend such an event and then John decides that he wants to run one of his own, but finds it's not as easy as he thought. Meanwhile, Paul talks to Calum about his history with quizzes of all kinds and then explains to Ikk what all these questions are about! There are also poems. Our next episode, number 89 - is our live show from the Live Pride48 Streaming Event on Saturday 24th June 2017. Do try and join us live, if you can - if not check out the podcast version of the show next week. Please email me at shyyeti@yahoo.co.uk if you have any comments - you can even send me a sound-file and I'll include it on the show.

There we go... That's all for now - but episode 89 and possibly episode 90 are due next week! We're getting closer to episode 100 - I would think we'll be ready to release that by August; still , we've got a long way to go yet... That said we've pretty much got most of those episodes already recorded. Next up, we have more photos from Jersey - mostly from locations where I recorded the podcast...









































Next time I'll probably be telling you a little bit about our part in the Pride48 Live Streaming Event that is taking place this weekend, starting today - Friday 23rd June and concluding on Sunday 25th June 2017...

That's all for now... Take care - more soon, Yeti hugs,


Paul (aka Shy Yeti) xx

PS The following story was conceived on Tuesday 6th June, but was not written until Friday 16th June 2017. As I've said before - it's just a little one, but it's quite good fun (I hope!!)

WISHES DO COME TRUE...

Sally was in two minds about the Wishing Well. She valued her pocket money - but mummy and daddy seemed annoyingly keen for her to throw a chunk of it down the Wishing Well and peering into her purse she failed to see any small coins amongst the current balance. Sally had been saving for the latest tip-top collection by her favourite pop-star and simply throwing a handful of coins down this well was going to set back a way from her current goal. If they were so keen for her to waste her pennies on such wish-washy fairy-tale nonsense, then why didn't they simply gift her the appropriate change to do so.

"Go on, honey! Throw it in! Make a wish!" they cried, clearly unwilling to invest in this activity themselves.

Sally pulled a face, but at the same time she also gave in - took two or three of her smallest coins and flipped them into the well one at a time.

PLIP! PLOP!! SPLASH!!!

Sally made her wish - she didn't aim too high - and soon enough her desires came true; it was time to leave and ice cream was duly provided.

Meanwhile, down at the bottom of the well three smiling trolls - happily regarded their latest spoils - three shiny coins ready and waiting for them to spend.

"PLIP!!" said the first troll.

"PLOP!!" said the second troll.  

"SPLASH!!" said the third troll.

Having stood staring at their coins for more time than was necessary time the three of them put on their best brightly coloured bell-hats and headed off down to the local troll record shop to buy a copy of the brand new album by their favourite, poppermost singer-songstress...

Because sometimes - you see - wishes really do come true...
