    Cargo bike hunting! You are Trumpanzee junior and ICMFP.

    Work work day, sun is out, at least for now, and not raining, at least for now, and the wind has dropped, at least etc. So expecting to be hit with the cold deluge by lunchtime. And that's about it.

    I had to look that up - Coddle (I may have a misspelling here as I've never seen it written, only spoken) to me is a simple but delicious Irish meal (a sort of stew, most on the web are wrong IMHO). LOL everyday is a learning day.

    Better day for riding, still too cold though (for me) bring on global warming! WFW, curry tonight and maybe cider, nothing else planned

    Ciao

    bright but v windy. v v v windy. intending to do the minimum possible.

    Coddle - to comfort, hold secure, make feel warm. Like snoggling, as in snoggling into TDNFNATN's bosum.

    Funny, I had to look up the spelling of molliecuddled, no wait... mollycoddled the other day. Just like C_C, never seen it written.

    Bright n sunny here. Going to wreck the day by removing old Porker gearbox due to crank shaft oil seal leak (flywheel end). F*ckity, f*ck. [Insert rolling eyes Icon]

    O I meant this type

    Not sure if to be insulted by the trumpanzee comment and not got a clue on the acronym. Crumbly old neighbour was looking for a bike to take his stuff down to his allotment and back, someone's actually suggested a mobility scooter with trailer so will see which way he goes.

    Morning folks,
    Day of wfh for a bit followed by wfod this afternoon, then pub garden if conditions allow.
    I assumed the new sofa would coddle as in mollycoddle, coddled eggs are what some people call poached but are in fact cheating. Is the root of the word the same? Never heard of the stew type thing Mr Croker.
    So, will Oxo's neighbour start a chain of brothels if he gets that?
    I suppose I should answer more emails from idiots, onwards...

    Love you guys.

    Neighbour's only gone and got a mobility scooter and is going to tow a little trailer. So much for my suggestion. OH happy as new dryer coming Friday and I'm happy as tredz delivering my order Saturday.

    Oh definitely feel insulted. Just google Donald Trump junior and hunting for the details, if you dare.

    The cold deluge, foreshadowed by sheet lightning, did arrive but by mid afternoon, so a soggy early bail. More time to richard about on t'internet then. Sun's back out now. Oh well.
