Train Yourself to Trail

It is surprisingly easy to become a Trailing Spouse (TS). Any man can do it by following a few simple rules.  Within a short period of time, you will be able to brag to your friends that you have become part of a TS network, are on your way to being socially ostracized, stabbed in the back, and possibly tortured under the Prevention of Terrorism Act 2005.

Training for Trailing Spouses

I have become the perfection of idle for many observers of the business of trailing the better half. Few appreciate, or seem to care, that I remove myself from danger and achieve ends by the application of poncing rather than working.


Get into the sports bag, Mr. Williams.

Tradecraft for Trailing Spouses

To be a professional in any occupation, one must acquire the skills and tools of the trade and in this respect the Trailing Spouse (TS) is no different.  The skills taught to a would-be TS are known as "tradecraft". It is a set of rules or standard operating procedure. These are diverse, and include thrashing the maid, going to the gym, having lunch with inappropriate persons, and a multiplicity of other practices.

Laughing at Americans

Yanks are good for a laugh. And if you are a Brit, living in the US of A (exactly one year today), there's plenty to laugh about. Don't get me wrong. I love America and I am an American through my Father. But, because I am half Yank, I can slag off the foibles and idiosyncrasies of the Fatherland. It's my First Amendment right So there.

Daeng Place

Where every low-life knows your name

Daeng Place. At one time, in the early part of the 21st Century, it was probably the greatest boozer on Planet Earth. What made it so spectacular? Every loony, near genius, defector from reality and second class citizen drank there. Me included.
