Or give him a leaky catheter.


Merlin Report 5 Mar 2013 14:05

Could make a vast difference,even a change of personality if not careful. :-D :-D

My dishwasher is going to have to go without his sausage sandwich this week. Hasn't been a potato peeler since the cataracts got bad.

Well,he has his little board with the spikes in to hold the spuds by his lap and you really like to be careful where you are wielding your peeler when you can't see very well!

Gins Report 5 Mar 2013 13:15

A 'swinging' that does sound interesting ;-)

I bet Roy is in the pub


Merlin Report 5 Mar 2013 13:03

I thought that perhaps your Potato Peeler had gone out for his Sausage Sandwich with his mate. :-D :-D

Please don't post about knives cos I've cut the tip of my finger badly :-( .......damn swede :-|

....was that interesting enough? :-D

edit: OH said "tell'em we were up early cos he needed to get 'the aud boiler serviced"......*cheeky wotsit ;-)


Sharron Report 5 Mar 2013 11:06

At the riske of repeating myself without just cause, it was a knife at one end and a swinging peeler at the other. It came from Lakeland and is being replaced today, phew!!!!!!

I gave my mate one and she uses it all the time and sings it's praises loudly.

Ah now Sharron, breaking your potato peeler is serious :-0 I must have missed that thread, or I would have commiserated, a good peeler being a necessity. I used to have one that you could use left or right handed...but it is gorn, somewhere in a compost heap in Wales I think :-(


Sharron Report 5 Mar 2013 10:48

I put about breaking my potato peeler.

How interesting do you want?

I didn't post at all yesterday I don't think, I am trying to follow the good principle of 'if you can't say something nice, say nothing at all' :-D ( I might have added to the Cardinal thread but it wouldn't have been particularly usefull to do so ).

That and the fact there was no news, no inspiring thoughts, no interesting quirky ideas about, that I could think of posting.

It was like trying to start a fire without kindling :-)


Sharron Report 5 Mar 2013 10:31

Put something interesting on the boards then.

Long time posters ride off into the sunset, but others appear. It's just one of natures cycles. ;-)

The sun is shining, the sky is blue
Out in the garden I've lot’s to do
My coffee is a mite too hot
When poured out of the pot
So onto GR a quick log in
To sit here too long would be a sin
So a very good morning to everyone
Before I get out and get some done
