When I 'wasted' my time at school, listening to Led Zepplin and Pink Floyd albums, I always used to dream about living in Scotland overlooking the sea, painting pictures, playing and recording music, fishing in my own bay, working on the land and not having to worry about money, and it's all here, O.K. except the money, so I don't worry about it...

My Top Is Missing

An email sent to Pukka Pies and their response...
Well done Pukka Pies

ARGGGGGGH can you imagine our dispair,
When the boxes were opened and one lid wasn't there,
My Pukka Pies wrong, it's body incompleat,
With shock and pure anguish I fell off my seat,
With menacing looks we stared at each other,
My wife said 'sorry love we don't have another!'.
Then suddenly silence fell on the room,
Darkness, forboding a vision of DOOM,
As you will guess my wife got the top,
I only pray these mistakes they will stop.

A very hungry and sad
Sean.

Dear Sean

I thank you so much,
For your well thought out verse,
And would like to say sorry,
And of course reimburse.

Please forward your address,
Just as soon as you can,
Then a letter and cheque,
I will send by post man.

Thank you again,
You have quite made my day.
And I wish all complaints,
Could be made in this way!

Kind Regards

Ms Kerry Dickens
Customer Services Manager

November 5th GCUSA auction shoot






What a day we had, every drive worked like a dream with good 'flushes' and high flying birds.
Total tally for the day worked out as 171 birds for 783 shots over 6 drives with a very even ratio of 4.57 shots per bird.
Our American 'guns' were over the moon saying it had been the best day of their trip! (the 'tip' would support this).
A great way to start the season!
We are Lot 18 on page 12 of the catalogue with an estimated value of $70,000 - $ 90,000, the lot went for something in the region of £75,000.

True or False

A....  A child who's mum is in hospital gets a taxi to their school ?
B..... A registered alchoholic gets a taxi to make a 12 mile round trip to deliver a bottle of whisky to their house everyday ?
C..... A registered alchoholic gets a daily cash allowance to buy their drink and a free bus pass to get to the off license ?
D.... .A cat will be boarded at council expence if it's owner can not look after it ?

B, C and D are all true but we now know that A is not.
The child (A) has now had to start in a new school..... short term we hope.
B, C and D are happy, or seem to be.
I do believe that everyone should be looked after if needed, but could there be any chance of common sense?
Sorry for the 'rant' but as we are all being told to save money I'm starting to wonder why !
