walkingdecay: Ever since I bought a big bag of rock salt the front step hasn't frozen up once, so I haven't had to use it. Assuming this is some sort of principle in action I'm now going to buy a windmill. Jan 11, 2017 15:27:54 GMT
scorpiodog: I think, on that principle, I'll hire an admin assistant. Or maybe I'll just delegate more to my existing employees. What a bloomin' day! Tea break over, back on yer heads! Jan 11, 2017 15:32:05 GMT
walkingdecay: Never mind Paul. You'll get to retire someday and have time to think things like, "Were my legs always that colour?" Jan 12, 2017 2:31:19 GMT
scorpiodog: As a matter of fact, I never wonder about the colour of your legs, Pete. ;-) OK, I saw the quotation marks! Jan 12, 2017 13:47:58 GMT
walkingdecay: That's all right. I never thought about them myself until recently. Jan 14, 2017 9:07:52 GMT
leoroberts: I haven't SEEN my legs for the last 10 years... I know they're down there somewhere... Jan 16, 2017 14:31:38 GMT
scorpiodog: They must be or you'd bruise your bum every time you crossed the road. Jan 16, 2017 17:21:49 GMT
ocarolan: say nothing of even more delicate bits... Jan 17, 2017 22:34:21 GMT
walkingdecay: What do you get when you go into a neighbour's garage to help him move a heavy cabinet? An ironing board falls on your head, you find yourself in A&E being treated for concussion and you feel sick for three days. Jan 18, 2017 10:34:00 GMT
Martin: and the moral to the story no one! Hope you're feeling better soon - what a bit of bad luck! Jan 18, 2017 10:52:09 GMT *
walkingdecay: I feel fine today, thanks Martin. Though I may have developed a deep aversion to ironing boards. Jan 18, 2017 11:21:07 GMT
scorpiodog: A wise aversion, Pete. Aversion to vacuum cleaners, washing up liquid and dusters is also useful. Jan 18, 2017 12:04:20 GMT
ocarolan: ...avoiding neighbours can be helpful too.... Jan 18, 2017 23:23:15 GMT
Martin: Definitely. And 'Home and Away'. I can't stand soap operas >:( Jan 19, 2017 13:44:05 GMT
