I've been off here for a while because 'im indoors has been trying to sort out a few problems on my computer. Uzzi rang me though to tell me about it and I just fell off me chair in a heap laughing :-D :-D :-D

Then when I read what Island put about Fred, I did it all over again :-D

*whispers* - I think she thinks Fred is Sharron's OH. :-0 ;-) :-D

Couldn´t resist this :-D :-D :-D

Right said Fred, both of us together, one each end and steady as we go
Tried to to shift it, couldn't even lift it, we was getting nowhere
And so, we, had a cup of tea

Right said Fred, give a shout to Charlie, up comes Charlie from the floor below
After straining, heaving and complaining, we was getting nowhere
And so, we, had a cup of tea

Charlie had a think and he thought we ought, to take off all the handles
And the things that hold the candles - but it did no good (well I never thought it would!)

Right said Fred, have to take the feet off, to get them feet off wouldn't take a mo...
Took its feet off, even with the seat off, should have got us somewhere, but no!
So Fred said let's have another cup of tea, and we said "right-oh!"

Right said Fred, have to take the door off, need more space to shift the so-and-so
Had bad twinges, taking off the hinges, and it got us nowhere
And so, we, had a cup of tea

Right said Fred, have to take the wall down, that there wall is gonna have to go
Took the wall down, even with it all down, we was getting nowhere
And so, we, had a cup of tea

Charlie had a think and and he said look Fred, I've got a sort of feeling
If we remove the ceiling,
With a rope or two we can drop the blighter through...

Right said Fred, climbing up a ladder, with his crowbar gave a mighty blow
Was he in trouble, half a ton of rubble, landed on the top of, his dome
So Charlie and me had another cup of tea
And then we, went home!


I said to Charlie we'll just have to leave it standing on the landing, that's all.
You see the trouble with Fred is, he's too hasty.
Now you never get nowhere if you're too hasty...



but at least that Fred didn´t get locked in a van waiting for the Isle of Wight ferry!!!

*wonders if Freds mate is called Charlie* :-0 :-D :-D

I'd love to be a fly on the wall at chez Sharron.......

"Welcome home, welcome
Come on in, and close the door
You've been gone, too long
Welcome, you're home once more" :-) :-)

Lol @Wend no I´ve been a sing Hole in the Ground

So big and sort of round it was .....

............off to find the lyrics>>>>>>

UzziInSunshine Report 25 Nov 2012 18:37

There I was, a-digging this hole
A hole in the ground, so big and sort of round it was
There was I, digging it deep
It was flat at at the bottom and the sides were steep
When along, comes this bloke in a bowler which he lifted and scratched his head
Well we looked down the hole, poor demented soul and he said

Do you mind if I make a suggestion?

Don't dig there, dig it elsewhere
Your digging it round and it ought to be square
The shape of it's wrong, it's much much too long
And you can't put hole where a hole don't belong

I ask, what a liberty eh
Nearly bashed him right in the bowler

Well there was I, stood in me hole
Shovelling earth for all I was worth
There was him, standing up there
So grand and official with his nose in the air
So I gave him a look sort of sideways and I leaned on my shovel and sighed

Well I lit me a fag and having took a drag I replied

I just couldn't bear, to dig it elsewhere
I'm digging it round co's I don't want it square
And if you disagree it doesn't bother me
That's the place where the holes gonna be

Well there we were, discussing this hole
A hole in the ground so big and sort of round it was
Well it's not there now, the ground's all flat
And beneath it is the MOTHER IN HER HOLIDAY HAT

And that's that
