It seems to be going on and on, so rather than killing it myself, I will sadly just let it die :-( :-(

I expect sparks to fly
In the twinkle of an eye
When at last goodbye to thread
Hoping hoping it's now dead :-D :-D :-D

At a quick glance I thought this thread had turned into a tennis match with scores showing ...15 and 30 caught my eye, lets not it become deuce :-\ :-\ :-\ :-\
I thought we were killing this thread to show Paula.

An idea......which may inconvenience many of the population of the my BIL is an Electrical Engineering Manager in a main Electrical company , worked for 2 so has contacts with both..................he could pull the plug on both companies ;-)
He has the knowledge and the technical ability to do so,
but then I'd miss Emmerdale....No !......... back to the drawing board. :-(

Make of it what you will Errol ;-)

John in the past five pages you have posted fifteen times to my one so I think your claim is somewhat erroneous.

Sandie is that a personal observation or a general statement lol

Wend. Have tried everything else :-( :-( :-( :-(

But you and Errol keep pushing thread along. I think Paula must have quite forgotten what question she originally asked.

This thread is all about a cuddly toy with spectacles and .........receptacles :-S :-S


eRRolSheep Report 20 Mar 2013 22:27

Is a noddy holder a receptacle for a little cuddly toy based on the books of the same name?


Wend Report 20 Mar 2013 22:09

Someone's trying hard to kill this thread Paula :-D

My aunt worked for Boots in Walsall as a floor manager. She went to an international perfumery convention in Brussels. One lady asked her where she came from. "Walsall" she replied.

"Oh, so brave. Tell me, how do you cope with the language"

Auntie Pat mentally went through Urdu, Gujerati and other languages common by then in Walsall. Then realised woman though she had said "Warsaw" :-) :-)

And also no answer for this one either
but I have an idea so can you guess what's next :-D :-D :-D


JustJohn Report 20 Mar 2013 13:38

Paula. When dad was looking to buy a paper shop (about 1960) he had his eye on a nice little shop on Caldmore Green. Also one in Shifnal! And he picked a grotty one in Leamore in the end.

I liked Leamore though. But I often thought Caldmore would have been nice cos I used to go to Fellows Park a lot to watch Saddlers. Easy walk instead of a bus from Rosum into town and long walk out:-D :-D

Lily as long as people keep responding I will survive ;-)

Do you know as yet I have no answer for the above :-D
