    Good morning, misty here this morning and cold (well for the end of May)with it,

    ooh, what's the new car? Is it a HiLux? If so, can I borrow it? I'll only make a couple of minor modifications.
    Morning folks,
    Lovely sunny morning and it's Fryday. Unfortunately I had to drive in as I have to bunk off early to take the girl for another appointment and no cafe for the same reason. At least I get to leave at 3 for POETS day and enjoy the long weekend. Went round to have a word with the neighbours last night, they weren't in. Probably going to be busy today as half the office aren't in, deep joy. First cup of tea has been drunk, need someone else to turn up and make me a second one.
    Onwards and upwards...

    Arrr, more tea has arrived.

    Got up early with a slight fog as a few wines were sunk last night, first climb of the ride and my fog cleared only to be met with wet fog on't ills.

    You mean they switched the lights off and hid behind the couch.

    I got rid of my dodgy neighbours so if you want some tips...
    How about a BB party - you provide the beer and burgers, we'll do the rest? Stevo could get some of his stoned sheep and put them over the wall. I'll bring a load of waste cooking oil effluent and some pumps.
    Either that or borrow my toots for a week. (They love pasta)

    Laters.

    Yes. Bring your mates. I'm fed up of this neighbour saga, we ought to help our fellow brother if only so he can move on in life and we can get some peace. There be irony in there, there be.

    You're fed up with it? Imagine how I feel. I'd let you and the toots kip in the garage if it wasn't so full.

    There's an Irish tinker who sometimes lurks in here - perhaps he could bring some of his wandering brethren to camp out in your garden.

    Theoretically, the pub could be both. Get drunk and pick a fight.

    Shouldn't be too difficult on Merseyside.

    ACOAD. Now on train home hoping to get some quality slobbing time in. Feeding the sheep more skunk will have to wait till tomorrow morning.

    Arr, tis true. The Dee be full o' cross-currents, scurvy dogs, and eels. The Mersey is just full o' Scousers.
    Salt pork and wine for tea. I just want some bacon and eggs. And I have discovered a box of red. Splice the mainbrace, me hearties!
    Yes, talk like a pirate day is in September, but it's all good practice.
