Talking of hoovers . . .

My daughter made me laugh this morning. Yesterday a man walked into reception at the offices where she works. He said to the receptionist, 'Hi, I'm from the pub just up the road and our hoover has packed up. I was wondering if you have one we could borrow for an hour or so.' She duly obliged and then watched him walk up the road with it and past the pub.

Man with hoover hasn't been seen since :-(

What a coincidence Wend,
I've Just come from the local watering hole and a bloke in there has been selling cheap secondhand Vacuum Cleaners.
Apparently he has quite a few different models in his van out side in the car park. ;-)
:-D :-D

Ps hope you`re feeling better. <3 & xxx

Wend Report 21 Dec 2012 13:42

Sounds a bit like my son-in-law Merlin - he's 6 ft 8 ins and his nickname is Ladder. I put nibbles out on the table for everyone and he eats them in a couple of handfuls :-|

Apart from that, he's lovely :-D
