A launch!

Of course it was. A steam launch.



Fut, fut, fut.

But with the pleasure of recalling such times comes the painful realisation that I was born into the wrong time in the wrong circumstances. I am really an Edwardian gent but born into the wrong era with insufficient funds.

Where did I park the Lagonda?

Morning all it's a bit nippy outside wavey
You're not kidding, i found an ice cube in the bed this morning.
So i put in on the radiator...five minutes later it went

PAAARRRPPPPP!!!!

-4 this morning on my walk to work, i might have thawed out by about home time.
Bobbers - yes i was aware Eddie Hall had suffered with depression.

Dicky - steam launches do indeed make a noise that sounds like fut, fut, fut. Did i tell you i once took Lady Slopes to Padstow -lovely place -and as it was summer time, the speed boat rides were in full swing and christ they sounded vicious. What have you got in there engine wise i asked one of the boat drivers.
Bloody great big Iveco diseasel he replied.
Sounds a bit vicious said i.
Was a lovely day, very warm and lots of sunshine. Ahh those were the days

Well, that was odd.

Talk was of Eddie Hall and, loud and clear, Eddie Waring came to mind.



"It's an up-and-under!"

The mind is a strange and wonderful thing.

Nostalgicaly phrased, good sir.
One's mind also harks back to those "Good old days" when things were less egalitarian and servants knew their place.
I believe that "The Lady of the Lake" still plies her trade up in Bowness-on-Windermere where, for a small consideration, one can enjoy a most sedate and enjoyable ride going up and down with the aural satisfaction of a gentle "Fut Fut Fut". cloud9

Talking of which, I think you may have left the Lagonda parked directly outside "The Hen House" in Market Triborough.
I saw it there yesterday as I was leaving passing.
A tad indiscreet of you, I thought.

I did hear muffled cries of "Oooh, Dicky, you bad bad boy!" from the adjacent boudoir.

No. No. nono No, I didn't hear that at all.
I couldn't possibly have heard that, I was down the road in Pizza Express enjoying a Hot American at the time.
Whatever that time was.

I swear.

Is that really the time?
Oh dear, sorry, I must be off.
Ta ta, old boy, cheery bye. wavey

An "up and under"?

Funnily enough, that's what I chose as well.
They have a great menu choice at The Hen House Pizza Express.
Yum! lick

It's an ill wind that blows no one any good. I dropped a whole box of multi-coloured bulldog clips off the bureau down beside the radiator. They went everywhere. But as I bent down to collect them I found a pair of underpants that had been drying on the radiator and must have fallen off as well.

smile

As you know, a clean pair of pants is not to be sniffed at.

No, I think that warrants a rofl

Best not appear too enthusiastic, don't want to give him ideas above his station. wink

The thought occurs: were they clean, or were they just... err.... drying?

An acquaintance of mine is partial to Sloppy Giuseppe. I'm very puzzled because he doesn't like pizza.

You know you don't have to look?

Close your eyes and try to visualise poor ApO outside in just his tee-shirt in a - 6°C temperature. BRRRRRR!

I'm a little perturbed at the image of Dicky messing around with all those multi-coloured Bulldog clips.

I know for a fact that he hasn't got a pack of multi-coloured bulldogs, so he must be using those clips for some alternative nefarious purpose or other...

I believe he uses them in place of nipple clamps to coordinate with whatever colour he happens to be wearing that day!!! yes
