    Strange but if anyone had asked me age 7 what I wanted to be I might have said 'a crayon' and I still tend to add an embellishment and a bit of colour to absolutely everything! I am not sure you liked the boy who wanted to be a crayon but I think he was possibly the one with the lateral thinking. What did he grow up to be?
    Thought provoking.

Best Poem of Wild Bill Balding

Good Dog, Bad Dog

Why is it when I'm doing what dogs do,
what dogs are designed to do,
then I'm a Bad Dog?

Why is it when I'm not doing what dogs do,
denying my very canininity,
then I'm a Good Dog?

Sniffing strangers' arses; humping Auntie's leg;
pissing to say 'I woz 'ere' - that's what we were made for!
Sitting still and silent, make no noise or smell,
wearing dainty waistcoats - just an evil joke!

Good dog, bad dog - why can't we decide,
join your debate on the meaning of 'good'?
We dogs can emote and intuit, be logical and positive! ...
