As there seems to be quite a bit of artistic talent around here, I thought I would start a pencil sketch section .....

I had a Pahhhhaha ! moment with my Mum (85 & 3/4) the other day......

She was complaining bitterly about the shear weight of Junk mail she gets (steps ARE afoot to stop it)...

"Every Blinking day " she said "someboby 's sending me  yet ANOTHER catalogue" (and then listed the arrivals for the last few days)

........" I wouldn't mind" she continued......and then with that dismissive tail-off in her voice  " but they're ALL based in bloody bradford " !

Fell off the outside toilet roof.....  Sounds like an episode from Uncle Mort. I gave my ladders away because I knew my roof and chimney days are over. It's the balance that goes. Thell the old fool to send you up!

Conor, my Dad's 91 and races around in a Ford Ka terrorising the population. I had a bad time getting him to let me replace the cable on his electric mower because he insisted there was nowt wrong with him mowing the wet lawn while it was patched together in two places with insulation tape that was falling off. He would climb on top of his compost heap (a metre high) and jump up and down to compact it. He goes up ladders to clean out the gutters. The neighbours probably think we don't look after him properly.

It's a fine line isn't it, between caring and curtailing...most elderly parents still feel like parents and they certainly don't want us young whipper snappers telling them what to do ... I am so thankful ..that I don't have parents around any more..it was awful losing them buti am so glad I have none of these difficult scenarios to deal with..it's hard enough getting myself through life! Actually I do have Deadly and no.4 still at home..come to think of it it's not that different!

thats kinda comforting to know we arnt the only ones thats got one!!
right the hen house story.... gramp had rats down the bottom of the garden where he had 2 hen houses full of our christmas roosters.  so he got a really big red gas canister (the type that they use on road works) it was massive. anyway he goes and stuffsnewspaper in the rats holes and there were lots to block up. then he puts the gas hose turn on full down into the hole.
 off he went to have a cuppa while the gas went underground. on his return he decides just to make sure the rats were dead he lights a match!!! oh just wait... he throws it in the hole and runs for cover. the earth kinda moved and up went the two hen houses with our christmas roosters, feathers and dust and debrie everywhere. we didnt get to have any roosters for christmas dinner!!! but as you know hes still here LOL but it did sort the rat problem hahahaha
stanley mum said to tell you, she is going to post your newspaper tomorrow. its not too bad

My father-in-law found there was a big wasps nest in one of the air vents at the base of his house wall. He considered various strategies and then had a bright idea. He asked his wife for the vacuum cleaner so that he could suck them out. Luckily she asked what he would do once he had them `in the bag' so to speak!

Your gramps sounds a right sort of guy - are you sure he's not from Barlick ?  Can you not persuade him to become a member ? Nolic

Comrade, we ought to inroduce him to Gigglepants, I'm sure he could find a use for his talents!

Conor, the hen hut story is brilliant but I wouldn't want him living next door to me!
