Yabba Dabba Doo. Thanks Bob.
BTW, I replied to your previous few lines but I messed it up when posting it. I must have botched it up somehow,...all due to this perishing ForumCo. I mailed it to Larry by mistake.
See you soon pal.

Hip, Hip, Hooray - We're back up today

I'm a bit under the weather today so I won't hang around too long, but seeing my website up and running again has cheered me up a lot, so we're celebrating with a fireworks display

Wahey, yippee, hurrah, three rousing cheers and yabba-dabba-doo into the bargain, the site is finally working again

Had trouble getting online today kept getting a message that said 'Google chrome is not responding' then when I finally managed to get to the site I could'nt believe my eyes when I saw everything was back to normal, thought I must be hallucinating or I was still fast asleep in bed and dreaming it all I am SO pleased that it was'nt a dream and that we're really back to normal again, fingers crossed that nothing goes wrong again from now on.

Weather's been very mixed here this week, one moment the sun is shining, five minutes later it's pouring down, some days it's freezing cold, other days it's almost warm, it probably WOULD feel much warmer if it was'nt for the perishing wind, that never seems to stop blowing whatever sort of day it is, sometimes it feels as if it's trying to cut you in half.

Oh well, time for my duty visit to facebook now, have to keep up with my many fans on there -- Ha-ha It won't be a patch on being able to post on here again though, it's been bloody fantastic hearing from you lot again

Hi Larry. I did send you my chat this afternoon. Something must have gone wrong. I might have made a mistake in the posting of it. But I definitely did click 'post message' and it appeared to be OK.

Sorry if I made a bloomer of it. Have a look in the list of posted messages for March 17.

Hi Larry. At last,...our chatting site is back to normal. It was all completed a week before last, but now it's OK, let's hope it stays like this. And it's good that Pauline has been able to connect to ForumCo after all the perishing trouble we had.
The weather here today started with brilliant sunshine, but it soon changed to a strong wind and light rain, but I think Easter is not far away.
Before I started dropping you these few lines I once again saw on TV the RSPCA ad about the ill treatment of animals. I try not to look at the damn thing, but it sickens me to be aware of the horrifick way these poor creatures have to suffer. I don't have to tell you what my punishment would be to these b****Y criminals.
Well, it's great to be able to chat again without all the perishing problems we had.
OK, let's get going then, go get the carrier bag. I'm not going to tell you what the goodies are this week,...it's secret from now on. Here goes,...,Fflip Fflop Fflap. Hope you caught the 6 items.
All our pals on here will now be able to read our little gossips. Bob and our other chatters will sneak in on our chats. . . .
Take care pal, see you next Sunday,...I hope!

Hi Larry. Ooooooh! Glad we are back to normal on here. Didn't hear from you last Sunday, either you couldn't make it to your 'puter spot, or there was a posting error on here,...like I have experienced many times myself these past few months. Anyway, hope you and your family are all OK.
The weather here not too bad today, still a bit on the cold side but looks as if we are going to have an early Spring. Putting the clocks forward 1 hour last night certainly changed getting up this morning, my 'better half' called me with a shout...it's 10 o'clock,...shook me out of my socks. Ho! Ho! Ho!
Funny old world pal, nothing but storms like that recent one in Mozambique causing mayhem and loss of lives caused by nature turning things upside down. Then all the b****y killings by maniacs from the age of 12. And the damn Brexit arguments...enough to drive one 'up the 'b****y wall.
Well, at last we are able to get back to normal on here,...thank God for that. Go get your equipment bag. Here goes, the usual normal supply for you and the 'Special lot', blllwmp, ffflippp, ssslwmp. Hope you caught the lot.
Take care pal, hope the Rover keeps buzzing along.

Afternoon Fussy sorry I missed last week, could'nt get the b****y motor to start and could'nt get it fixed till mid-week It's starting to cost me almost as much in repairs as it would to buy a new one, think I'm going to have to send it to the knackers yard one of these days

Weather's been pretty good here most of last week, felt quite Summery a lot of the time, but it's not so good again today, really chilly compared to last week and we haven't seen the sun all day. Somebody said they'd forecast snow again, do'nt know whether to believe that or not, but I would'nt be all that surprised, nothing about our strange British climate surprises me any more

Yea the world's in a mess is'nt it, although looking back through history I think maybe it's always been in a mess, we just did'nt hear so much about it in the old days. Now that we've got airplanes and television and the internet, news that used to take weeks, months or even years to reach us, travels around the world instantly so we hear about wars and disasters as soon as they happen, and seeing it all played out on our tv screens makes it much more real than hearing about it months after it happened. Seeing so many terrible things on the news and not being able to do anything about it gets very depressing, I sometimes think we were better in the old days when we were'nt so overwhelmed with it all

Better pay my respects to facebook now I suppose. Thankyou for this weeks treats - whatever they are Look after yourself m8, and barring any more tantrums from the motor I'll be back next Sunday

Hi Larry. Missed you last Sunday, sorry you had trouble with your Rover starting it's antics. Hope you sorted out the problem. I've lost all thoughts of car costs now as I packed in driving a few years ago. How about this. I've still got the cost bill of a job done on my Mini Cooper back in 1968 here in Swansea. It's unbelievable. Here are the details: 2 Clamps...6 shillings. 1 Mounting...One shilling and 9 pence.
Fit new Exhaust System, and fit new Sump Guard...£3-12-6, Totall Bill £4-0-3. Goodness knows how much that little job would cost today.
Weather fairly good here today, lots of sunshine and a little bit warmer. Yes, as you said last Sunday, loads of problems throughout the whole world took place centuries ago but we were not made aware of them in those days. It' sickening to learn about the knife crime, especially knifeing by kids as young as 12. Anyway, hope you and your family are in the best of health. One thing we can be sure of, our Pauline is fully occupied with her two best friends, she really is trailing the countryside in various parts of Pemb's.
Right then, go get the bag. OK, here goes. Fflwmp, Bblotttch and Chhhoccci. The last one is Ferrero Rocher, hope you caught the lot.
Take care pal, hope the Rover behaves himself from now on.
See you next Sunday,...I hope.

Hi Fussy, well I have had a flipping terrible time trying to log in here today, I do'nt know if the problem was with the site ir this computer, but it was driving me nuts, I thought I was never going to make it, I was just about ready to give up and go home, but I thought I'd give it one more try and lo and behold I finally managed to sign in. Just hope that this posts ok now and does'nt vanishninto thin air.

Blimey Fussy, only £4 o.3 for all that work on your car If only wecould get things done for those prices nowadays, you'd probably have to stick at least a couple of 00s on to the end these days. But I suppose even £4 was quite a lot back in 1968, wages back then were a heck of a lot less than today. I was'nt even born back then, but I know that my dad was'nt earning very much in the 1960s.

The weather's been very mixed here this past week, we've had freezing cold winds and torrential rain and one hight I think I heard thunder in the distance, I even saw snowon one of the mountans in the distance, but yesterday and today have been almost like Summer again, especially yesterday. I wnder what thiscoming week will bring us ? Probably a heatwave, a blizzard, a typhoon and a hurricane, maybe all on the same day, nothing would surprise me any more

Oh well, I'd better be signing off now, with all the trouble I had trying to log in I've already stayed a bit longer than usual, so if I do'nt head home soon the missis will be sending out a search party Thank you for all the goodies this week, stay well and unless we get flodded out or snowed in I'll be back next week

Hi Larry. Hells Bells! It's hellish cold here today, it warned us on the news yesterday that it was likely to freeze a bit these next few days. So you also had a b****y problem signing in on here last Sunday. That doesn't surprise me a bit, things have been unbelievably odd on here, I often thought it was my weakness in knowing how to deal with odds and sods on here, but I wasn't always to be blamed because there were hellish faults on this site for several months.
Still a hell of a time in several parts of the UK, b****y knife killings and all sorts of terror here and there, distressing to hear about it all. There should be tougher sentences, and another mass number of police to do a 24 hour duty. And you know me Larry, I would dish out a hell of a punishment for those maniacs who ill treat the defenceless animal. The RSPCA advert on TV about the horrible sight of some animals sickens me, to look away from the damn thing.
Hope you've fixed the problem you had with the Land Rover.
Well, that's about it for today pal. Go get your bag, now things are back to normal I'll be able to tell you what's what. It's a Guinness Bbblwtch, 4 Teasers fflipflop, and a Ferrero Rocher...Bbbblooops. Hope you caught the lot.
Take care, hope you don't have more trouble with the good old Rover.
See you next Sunday.

Afternoon Fussy Yea it's pretty damn cold here today as well, complete change from yesterday which was quite a nice day, not as warm as a couple of weeks ago, but sunny and dry. Still dry today (touch wood) but the sun's been keeping itself well hidden and there's a blooming cold wind

There does seem to be more knife crime around these days, not sure if that's because there is more of it going on or because we hear about it more because of increased communication nowadays, but I think it might help to cut down on all types of crime if there were more police out and about on the streets. Years ago you would see them out patrolling the streets on a regular basis and everybody knew who their local policemen were, they were part of the local community.These days you very rarely see any policemen (or women) and when you do they're usually shooting past in a police car at very hight speeds, as if they're afraid to hang around just incase they actually get called on to investigate a crime. Luckily I've never needed to call on their services myself, but I've heard people say that when they DO report a crime the police sometimes do'nt even bother to come out, or when they do it's too late to find any evidence. When I was a kid we got up to some pranks, but never anything serious, and the threat of a policeman or seeing one on the beat was always enough to make us behave. Some of these kids nowadays just don't seem to care or to be scared of anything, everything seems to have gone downhill since my young days. Thank god none of my kids show any signs of being budding juvenile delinquents.

Time for my weekly visit to facebook now, hope I do'nt see any more of those horrific posts about animal cruelty today, some of the things you see on there make you want to go out and kill the people responsible

Thanks for the Guinness, the teasers and the Ferrero Rocher, look after yourself, and see you next week all being well.

Hi Larry. Oooooh! Is it an early summer, it's been hot here yesterday and today, so far. Hope it keeps sunny from now on to...say early November with just a few showers here and there to keep our planet healthy. I can't imagine what I'd feel like now if I had to suffer the perishing heat of the far east for six months or more, without a drop of rain, or even a gust of wind.
I'm an old boy now Larry, I knocked 97 last Thursday, and I was raided by 7 Grandchildren and 10 Great Grandchildren,...sorry, I wasn't raided by all of them 'cos some were too busy at work, but I had a hectic day.
Well, what the hell next! Just seen the news about 130 deaths and 300 seriously injured in some trouble in Sri Lanka now. I don't ever remember there being so much killings of people and defenceless animals throughout the world. It's b****y crazy.
Well, hope ypu and your family are all OK. I'm glad that my NEW system of supplying you with my treats has worked, so go get the bag. Here goes, Bbblwmp, it's the usual Guinness, now for 4 Easter eggs, here goes Flip Flop Flop Flip, and of course a pack of Ferrero Rocher for the Governess. Hope you caught the lot.
That's it for this week pal. Keep the Rover plodding along.
Hope to make it next Sunday. Take care pal.

Afternoon Fussy Yes we're definately having some fantastic weather at the moment, I was very tempted to wear my shorts to work, but with all the funny things lurking in the long grass around here, not to mention that some of the animals like to stick their heads in some funny places I decided it might be safer to stick to sweltering in my longs

Ooh I hope you enjoyed yourself on your birthday Fussy, wish I could get in here to send you a message on the right day, maybe one year I can when your birthday next falls ona Sunday. Let's see, if it wason a Thursday this year then it should be on a Sunday three years from now No, hang on a mo, 2020 is a leap year is'nt it, they're every four years, so next year your birthday will two days later instead of one, so it'll be on a Sunday in two years not three. That's a date then, on your 99th birthday I'll be able to get down here and wish you a happy birthday on the right day Maybe I can do it for your 100th as well, I'll have to wangle my boss into giving me some time off on that day, seeing as it's how it'll be a very special occassion

When you read about all the violence and terrible things going on in the world it makes you wonder about god does'nt it? I'm not a very religious person, but I think sometimes that if there is a god then maybe it's about time he intervened and did something about it, because some of the things you hear about these days makes Sodom and Gommorah seem like Disneyland by comparison

Oh well, time for the weekly visit to facebook now. Thank you for this weeks treats, the kids will love the Easter eggs Take care and see you again next week (unless we have a blizzard before then )

Hi Larry. Here we go again, warm and sunny weather one minute and icy cold and pouring rain the next. Anyway, I shouldn't complain about the weather when there are such horrific terrorist crimes being committed all over the world. This latest one in Sri Lanka (it was Ceylon when I did some work on Liberator bombers there during my two week visit while I did my 3 year stretch of time in India and Burma during World War2.)
Must be hellish frightening for the locals to see these yobs walking into Christian churches and other buildings carrying bombing packs on their backs. Hells Bells! When are all these killings of thousands of people going to stop.
On a lighter note, thanks for my birthday wishes pal, and I look forward to your tricks when I hit the 100 mark. tongue in cheek!
I see that Pauline is having a hilarious time walking Meg and Molly around Sardis and other walks. I'm glad that she's got Tom to help her keep her little 'pad' nice and tidy, her house looks quite classy doesn't it. And Bob and Rover and family seem to be OK and 'Kicking'.
Well, go get the bag then. Hope you catch this next lot. Bbbblwmp, it's a Guinness again. Ffllippp, 4 Teasers for the 'bosses'. And here goes,...a small pack of Ferrero Rocher for you know who,...Ssshlopp.

Take care pal. Hope the classy Rover is trawling his way around.
See you next Sunday.

Howdy do Fussy, I'm a bit late again this week. I volunteered to drive the wife on a vist to some friends earlier today (well to be precise she told me that I was volunteering, which amounts o the same thing ) meant to het back earlier but you know what these ladies are like when they start gossiping (hopefully she'll never read that or I'll be on a bread and water diet for a week )

Yea I wish this weather would make up it's flipping mind, it goes from a heatwave to freezing cold almost overnight, you ca'nt plan anything in advance because you do'nt know what's coming next And did you get those high winds the night before last ? It brought down a lot of tree branches around here, bits of tree all over the fields and the lanes, and most of them were only just starting to come into leaf, think it's blown off a lot of blossom too which might affect fruit crops later in the year.

I really find it hard to understand all these killings in the name of so-called religion. I'm not all that religious myself, but if all these people profess to believe in god then surely it's the same god for everyone, so why ca'nt they all just get on with worshipping him in their own way and let others do the same? If they could all just agree to differ and learn to get along with each other the world would be a much better place

Better pop over to facebook now, do'nt want the missis telling me off for getting home late (even if it is her fault that I'm late today, Lol ) So thank you for this weeks goodies, and see you next Sunday all being well.

Hi Larry. Sorry about this pal, we've got visitors here, just arrived, so I don't think I will be able to drop you a line tomorrow, 'cos we may be taking a trip with these friends of ours.
So go get your bag, at least you will have had your treats. Hold the bag, here goes,...1 Guinness, 4 Teasers, and a pack of After Eights.
Hope you are all in good health.
Take care pal, will get in touch again next Sunday.
Funny dropping you a few lines on a Saturday night.

G'day Fussy me old cobber (as they say down under ) well as your not here today I'm guessing that you did go on that trip with your friends At least I know that you and tour computer areok and neither of you have conked out hope you had a nice day and the weather was'nt too bad.

It's still flipping weird around here, the sun is shining a lot but there's no warmth in it, when you get outside the wind is so cold it cold cut you in half Hard to belive it was so hot just a few weeks ago, hope it warms up again soon.

I heard on the news that the Welsh government is considering bringing in new laws to deal with puppy farms and to stop the pups being sold in pet shops. It's about bloody time that something was done to stop the people who treat those poor dogs so badly, but it remains to be seen whether they'll actually do something about it, or if it's just some more of their empty promises

Oh well, better go and see what's been happening on facebook now I suppose. Thanks for all the goodies, hope you enjoyed your trip, next week you can tell us where you went .

Ho! Ho! Ho! So I'm your old cobber then,...so by comparison I'm going to call you...my young cobber Well, the sun is shining HOT here today, I sat in our little front garden about an hour ago, and just after 15 minutes I could feel the heat starting to roast my cheeks so I said cheerio to my spell in the garden today. I wonder if we are going to have a sunny summer, like the one we had after I returned from the Far East in 1946, in 1947 I was dyeing for a cold summer after the perishing heat of 100% plus in Burma, but would you believe it, it was the hottest summer in Aberdare for years.
Yes, it is disgraceful how people in this country of ours are ill treating thousands of dogs. How the hell can these b******s be so cruel to one of the world's most lovable animals,...and cats by the way. It hurts every time I see the RSPCA ad' on TV. Even Liz says turn the damn thing off. I would make the punishment so SEVERE that the b*****s would be frightened to hell.
Right then, go get it. Here goes, Blwttch, it's a Guinness. And Bwmmp 4 Teasers. And here goes, the special one Fllllip, it's Ferrero Rocher. Well that's it for this week, take care pal, hope to see you again next Sunday. Hope everyone is OK in your household.

Howdy do Fussy, yea it's been pretty warm here for the past couple of days too and the forecast says it's going to last until at least Thursday, so let's hope their right. As long as it does'nt get TOO hot, 100 would definately be too much for me so I do'nt think I'll be booking any holidays to Burma in the near future Not that I'll ever be likely to afford it even if I wanted to go, I'd count myself lucky to have a week in a tent in Bridgend

When I see some of the posts on facebook about the way animals are treated in countries like China it makes my blood boil, but I think it really is time that they changed the laws on animal abuse in this country too. I heard on the news recently that the maximum sentence for animal abuse in England and Wales is just 6 months which they said was the lowest in Europe. They also said that only 8% of those convicted get to serve time in jail, which I think is disgusting If it was up to me I'd hang the b*******s

Oh well, time for my visit to facebook now I suppose, hope I do'nt see any more of those horrible posts that sometimes pop up. It makes me quite glad that I only get to visit on a Sunday, it's bad enough to read those posts once a week, seeing them every day would be horrible.

Thanks for this weeks goodies m8, look after yourself, and see you next week all being well

Hi Larry. Sunny and windy here today with threats of rain. But no complaints, it's been fairly good recently. Liz is happy with the weather, she's out in our little front garden at the moment watering the plants and feeding the birds with seeds and blocks of suet. She loves feeding the bird. We didn't see many sparrows last year, but they are back now 20 to 30 of them on each visit, scoffing the block of suet that Liz puts for them two or three times a week.
Well, poor Pauline is having loads of trouble with most of her technical equipment these days, looks as if she has trouble with the signal strength in her vicinity, or there must be snags somewhere.
Yes, like you I'm sickened to hear the depressing news of those b******s ill treating animals, the punishment should be so SEVERE that they would never ever repeat their wickedness again.
Go get the bag then. Here goes, Bbbblwp...it's a Guinness as usual. Now Ffflip, 4 Teasers, and Slllitch, a carton of After Eights.
Take care pal, I'm still hoping I'll win the lottery of millions, so that I can keep my promise of a brand new Range Rover for a chap you know well.

Afternoon Fussy, ooh we've had some lovely weather here for the past couple of days, not a drop of rain since Friday morning, wind's felt a bit chilly in the shade, but it's been nice and warm in the sunshine. It's supposed to stay sunny till the middle of the week at least so I hope they're right

Seems there's an election later this week for the European parliament or whatever, I have to admit I'm a bit puzzled, we're supposed to be leaving the EU so why do we have to vote for it ? And what do you think about this idea they've come up with to lower the voting age to 16 ?Personally speaking, if some of the teenagers I've come across are typical of the youth of today I think they should go the other way and put it back up to 21. Hearing some of the daft ideas some of these kids come out with it frightens me to think that they've got a hand in deciding the government of this country. I'm not saying that all teenagers are the same, but some of them sound as if they have'nt got a brain in their head God knows how they'd have got on id they'd been alive in the last war and been flying bombers at the age of only 18

Well better flit across to facebook now I suppose. Thank you for all the treats (I bet people are dying to know how you do it every week ) Take care, love to Liz and hopefully talk to you again next Sunday

Ho! Ho! Ho! Good to know that you're back Bob, we thought you had left us in the lurch, and gone to live somewhere in Germany.
Now that you are retired, you face life like me, but you're still a 'spring chicken' mun! Bet you are chuffed that your M in L doesn't come with you on your trips.
Anyway, glad that you are back. Hope this site keeps on a steady run, so that we can have a bit of fun now and again. Keep sinking the Guinness pal.

Hi Larry. Very wet here today, but I can sense a change any moment because that's how it is these days, sunshine appears all of a sudden after a rainy couple of hours.
Well, Mrs May will be in the land of freedom on June the 7th, what next, I wonder who they'll pick next to rule the roost? Whoever it is it will still be argumentative from day one. one never knows more bickering than those in parliament. It's a bit of a bore watching the news on TV about disagreements and threats about this and that.
As you can see above, Bob is back and 'kicking'. at least we can have a laugh here and there with his German 'gift of the gab'.
Well, Pauline has had her 'ups and'downs' now and again, but she's lucky she's got Meg and Moll to take for walks around her area of Sardis. Isn't it funny that they seem to bark quite a lot in the nights, sensitive hearing,...as most doggies are known to have.

Go get your bag then. It's a Guinness again Bllwmp! And 4 Teasers for the 'gaffers' Fffflop. And a small Ferrero Rocher for your 'better half'. Shmmook.
Take care pal, will try to get in touch again next Sunday.

Hope you are all OK.

Afternoon Fussy Ooh sorry to hear it's raining there, it's been a really nice day here lots of sunshine and I think it would be quite warm if it wasn't for the breeze, which can be a bit nippy. Is'nt it funny how much the weather can vary between places that aren't all that far apart

Well I personally won't be at all bothered to see the last of Theresa May. but I do'nt suppose that whoever we end up with any time in the future will be any better. All those politicians are the same, does'nt matter whatarty they belong to or what they promise you before the election to persuade you to vote for them, in the end their all a load of bloody crooks out to line their own pockets and buggar the restof us

Nice to hear from you again Bob, I was beginning to think you'd emigrated to some distant planet where there was no internet and no way of contacting us down here on earth, or else got locked in the cellar of a pub somewhere and drunk yourself to death before being found

Yea, Pauline goes on some lovely walks, I always enjoy seeing her photos, they bring back memories of my time in that area. There's some beautiful scenery around where we are now, but I miss being able to walk down to the sea.

Oh well, better go and see what's been happening on facebook now, many thanks for this weeks goodies Look after yourself and fingers crossed we'll both be back next week

Hi Larry. Well, would you believe it, I missed your birthday again. I've never got the exact date on my paperwork, am I right in saying that it's May 31st.? Anyway, here's wishing you a Happy Birthday, hope you had a good day.
The weather is a bit cloudy here today but quite warm, hope we have a good summer from now on. Liz is happy with her flower show in our little front garden, it's like a mini flower show with a few extra large roses, one of which I checked the size of this morning, it's 7 and a half inches across,...now isn't that a whopper! Ho! Ho! Ho!
Well, at least we've got Robert Downs back on here, hope he scribbles a few lines on here now and again.
Hasn't Pauline been showing loads of pics on Facebook, she's taken hundreds of pics of Pemb's with her super camera, and the 'girls' have been great company for her, even though they suddenly bark at odd times of the night.
Right then, go get the bag. Here goes Blwwwwmp, it's a Guinness as usual, but there's a change for the 'bosses', it's 4 Minstrels this week,...the Teasers were sold out. And it's a small Ferrero Rocher for your 'better half'. Hope you caught the lot.
Take care pal, hope to see you again next Sunday, hope you are all well.

Afternoon Fussy Yea it was my birthday on Friday, 47 years young Still got a few years to go to catch up with you though I just figured out that in another three years you'll be exactly twice my age -- hopefully we'll both still be here to celebrate that

Blimey! 7 and a half inches, that's a blooming big rose (if you'll pardon the pun ) Sounds more likea CauliFLOWER than a rose. What does Liz use for fertilizer ? Whatever it is we could use some of it on the farm, we could double our crop yield and make a fortune in a few months Not that I'd see much of the profit, I'd probably be lucky to get another few quid a year on my wages if that Still, I can always dream ca'nt I

Yes I love seeing all of Pauline's photos on facebook, the dogs and the scenery are beautiful she's really got a way with a camera, I'm hopeless, on the rare occasions that I've taken any photos of anything you'd have a hard job guessing what they were of, they're either full of headless people or they're a blurred mess

Wonder why Molly and Meg keep barking in the middle of the night ? Maybe it's that fox that she took the photos of a few weeks ago. Or on the other hand maybe she's got one of those mysterious big cats roaming around the place waiting for a chance to eat her (Only kidding Pauline They're probably barking at something miles away or nothing at all)

Oh well, time for the weekly visit to facebook now. Thanks for all this weeks goodies. Take care and see you again next week.

Hi Larry. Weather not to bad here today, sunny and a bit windy but nice enough to sit in our little garden for an hour.
Ho! Ho! Ho! you are 47 now, and I too hope we can both do another 3 years which will make it 50 years the difference.
Yes, Pauline uses her camera very well indeed, but you say that you'd find it a bit difficult, but believe me most modern cameras are high-tec and most of us find it a bit difficult to get good pic's, even after reading the instructions, which can be difficult to understand to get top quality picture.
Good programmes on TV this last week about the D'day attacks 75 years ago in northern France. Trump seemed to have enjoyed his trip to our part of the world. Funny old world innit, whatever goes on everywhere it's nothing but arguments galore from members of governments, and yobs here and there.
Go get you bag then. It's a Guinness as usual FFFFlaash. The teasers are back, 4 for the 'bosses'.Blifff. And a pack of After Eights for, you know who.
Take care pal, hope to chat for another 3 years.

Afternoon Fussy, yea it's not too bad here today, not exactly Summery but at least it's dry which is better than yesterday when it rained almost continuously for most of the day.

Belive me Fussy, when it comes to taking photos even the simplest camera in the world is too hard for me to cope with My better half has got one of those instant cameras where you do'nt have to twiddle any knobs or focus it or anything, just point it and click, but yours truly can even manage to mess that up, everybody in my photos has either got no head, or no legs, or one half of their body is cut off, and their usually blurry because I always press down too hard on the button and move the camera, I'm completely bloody hopeless

I do'nt know how Trump's got the cheek to attend commemorations for D-day when he's a coward who wasn't even willing to fight for his country, he managed to bribe his way out of being enlisted and now he's got the nerve to attend ceremonies in memory of real heros who fought and died, the fat orange *******makes me sick.

Well I'm off to facebook now, thank you for this week's treats. See you next week barring any hurricanes, blizzards or earthquakes between now and then

Hi Larry. So sorry pal this has to be a shorty today. As you well know it's Father's Day today, and I have been attacked half an hour ago by 9 members of our family, who have threatened to lock me in my settee so they can dilly dally about and chatter away. So I flew up here to drop you a few lines.
Go get your bag. Here goes, 1 Guinness, 4 Teasers, and a small Ferrero Rocher. Bwmbadibwmp! Hope you caught the lot. Sorry I had to make this a 'quickie' today pal.
Hope you are all well, and that they spoiled you today pal.
See you next Sunday

Afternoon Fussy, I think it's stll afternoon is'nt it I've been struggling to sign in here today nothing to do with the site, seems the computer was having an off day The boss man here's been fiddling with it for ages and it seems to be ok now, tough wood but I've lost track of the time while I've been sitting here waiting

Hope your having a nice time with your family Yea I had my cards and the usuall assortment of socks, sweets and after-shave and they also served up my favourite meal for lunch (although I think they had a bit of help from the missis with that )

It's a flippin orrible day here again today, cold, wet and windy, we've had better days than this in December If this is meant to be global warming I think something's gone wrong It's not looking good for the rest of the month either, the forecast says we might have a bit of sunshine next Thursday and Friday, but the temperatures are still predicted to be below 60f which is'nt great for this time of year. I'm starting to think that those few nice days we had in February and March are all the Summer we're going to be getting this year, the whole calendar seems to be turning upside down these days.

Oh well, time to make the weekly trek across to facebook (at least it's not a very long walk and I do'nt have to wear my mac, Lol ) Thanks for the goodies, enjoy the rest of your fathers day and see you next week
