:D  thank you camelot , 5 up anf ,'s better off  :bounce:

alan

Oh! I hope you had the bonus ball as well Alan  ;)

cheers John.


Ah, but you are not the only one to win on the lottery, Alan. The good news is that I had a four figure sum returned on the Euro lottery on Tuesday! :bounce: :claphappy: :beers:


The bad news is that it was only 14.30  (well, that's a 4 figure sum  ;) :'( :'()

Seriously though, congratulations Alan.

Weedkiller time. Such fun watching the responses of the passers by if you are wearing high viz, safety glasses and protective gloves and spraying stuff  >:D

Is that on your N gauge layout, EP? Or do you mean in the garden? ;)

Being neighbourly, last week I weedkillered the gravel strip between my house and the next one. Yesterday, my neighbour was on his hands and knees pulling the weeds up by hand. I tried to tell him I had put weedkiller on, and he agreed they were dying, which is why he was pulling them up. As he is Vietnamese, with a poor grasp of English, I think we had a misunderstanding!

No, round this neck of the woods, it's the English that grow them. He and his wife get their "highs" at work, doing finger (and toe) nail extensions, breathing in the fumes all day.

Our local council are renowned for sending kids past two primary schools, before they reach the one they have been given. Kids (and cars) going backwards and forwards all morning and afternoon. When I was a lad, that would have been good reason for an inter-school punch up - but we was a rough lot!

Unfortunately as kids all seem to get taken to school in cars these days we won't see the punch-ups like we used to. Those were the days!

My son went shopping this morning, came back with a new Sony 32" HD TV + internal HD freeview tuner.

Jokingly asked 'where's mine'  :)

They didn't have a 40" in stock - its being delivered on the 23rd  :jawdropping:

Nice lad  :thumbsup:
