A gIrL nAmEd SuE..........

Now my bottox lips have gone down, I feel now I can go out in public once again.

Also I would like to introduce you to my life long companion SuE (how beautiful are those baby blues?)

SuE has been with me since the early 70s. She is 10 years younger than me and certainly keeps me on my toes.
I first met SuE when my 'cuddler' won her at a church bizarre.. she had to play guess the name of the doll.. and yes it was SuE that she guessed.

SuE and I in recent years have been hidden in the top of a wardrobe together but over the years we have travelled around the UK with our 'cuddler' as she forged her career (I have no idea what that is but I saw something on TV about it once, I think?)

Nowadays I call my loverly SuE '1 shoe SuE' (my how we laugh..) as my 'cuddler' (foolishly in my book) allowed her off spring to cuddle her. She had a few tough years there I can tell you, I was so worried for her.

'Cuddlers' child insisted in undressing her and dressing her up again and again in various outfits that she had and as a result she lost 2 pairs of socks, a shoe and I know I shouldn't say this here but her knickers too... oh she also came in contact with those evil things called 'felt tipped pens' .. she has been 'made up' and wiped clean on more than one occasion, I can tell you.

However, she is still my SuE who has shared my life. She doesn't say much and she is blond like our 'cuddler'.. I will let you make up your mind about that one ...

Now my bottox lip swelling has gone down she will now be seen out with me... I think as the sun is still shining we will go for a picnic..... a teddy bear one of course!!

I'm sure Sue is a nice young thing an' all but she looks a little 'flighty' to me - I do hope she has some under-garments on now ...... mind you, I'm not wearing a stitch .... I don't really want to talk about that though.
