About

Quieter Elephant is, if you look at it a little skewed, quite irrelevant!

A whimsical look at life through the jaded and most definitely skewed eyes of  a fifty-something ex-pat Yorkshireman living in BC, Canada. If you’ve come here looking for the answer to life’s great mysteries… you’re definitely in the wrong place!! If however you’re looking for some lighthearted observations on Life, The Universe and Everything, and can’t find Douglas Adams’ site, why not stay a while? Poke around. Make some comments. The more erudite the better.

If you REALLY want to find Adamsesque stuff, try here… h2g2 – The h2g2 Tour.

Friend, this is an attitude and approach I can enjoy and applaud. I shall have a good look around and I wish you well! Cheers!

Why thank-you kindly! Being wished well is always welcome (if a little awkward to enunciate properly!)
I trust you found one or two things of interest or amusement, and didn’t leave your keys on the sideboard when you left.

Hi there

just wanted to make sure, you understood that the “7 x 7 Links Award” was yours for the taking should you chose to accept the challenge!

Eh?
So is this like off-roading for numerically challenged people, or a golf tournament?

Oh… I see. It helps when one catches up on ones backlog of unread blogs…
Thanks for the challenge!

I only ever do cross city golf. So much more enjoyable, if you can actually aim at someone accidentally.

The number of challenges have increased btw – I updated my post last night (so I think you have about 4 of those chainletterboyscoutbadges waiting to be stuck on your blog).

Wow! Thanks… I need to catch up on my reading.
And when you say “accidentally”, you mean you just missed, I presume!

Awfully kind, old chap!
I’ll add it to my “swapsies” bag though, as Sarah Alice from over on The Adventures of an English Student induced me to the club a little while back.

Got any threes?
