Merry, the trip wire toe thing is for during the hours of sleep, hence the problems you are now experiencing. Jess, Id certainly get a doctors note - tell them you are actually wired up to the machine and disconnection at any time could prove fatal (and not necessarily for you).

I predict that GR will be the quietest it's been for ages....we'll all have to sort our own trees first (in fact definitely off my tree already). Thanks again for the laugh Heather.....have just cracked the office up reading the thread. Thread...that brings us back to the trip wire. I vote we put Glen in charge Chris

in a way, this 1841 lark, makes me laugh - we are all desperate...and yet these folk have probably been dead best part of 150 BL**dy years we are sad, sorry, we are !

Im sorry Glen, but with this attitude, you are going to be the guy in the WW2 film who looks at the picture of his sweetheart and says you will marry her when you get back to Blighty and almost instantly gets blown to smithereens. Stiff upper lip is required for this job - and probably totally stiff body if we actually get you down that cannon barrel.

Glen come back here, act like the man you are, stand straight and tall in times of adversity. Dont stand there like a plonker, step back!

What, you think we could be liable if he lands on someone Chris??

Chrispynoodle Report 19 Apr 2006 16:33

Yes Heather, must be careful...don't want to get sued. Don't think 1841 could be classed as mitigating circs

We'll get him to sign a disclaimer - say he is going for a Guiness Book of Records attempt.

I've been having such a good belly laugh reading this thread that I had tears in my eyes and couldn't read properly. I mis-read Glen's last message to say thet he had turnips in his underpants. Had another good belly laugh! Margaret in Canada

OK folks, I have a Cunning Master Plan. Today I have been telling everyone I meet that the 1841 census is due to come on line onthe 4th of MAY!!!!! Clever, or what??? The lady in the Baker's was VERY interested, and so was the Postman. And the two Council workmen cutting the verges. Olde Crone
