My mother was a keen advocate of 'First Fridays'.

Any of you learned colleagues know what she was up to?

Was she a Catholic Dermot?

GoldenGirl does it matter?
Surely the important bit is that a papery product is adhered to my paw.
But seeing as you kindly asked with obvious and sincere concern I shall tell you.
It is a sheet of pure white A4 120 gsm paper.

I was opening some superglue and it spurted out over my hand so I reached for a piece of paper and now it is stuck fast.

I am now flapping about the room like a semaphore signaler.

Dermot it has something to do with Catholic devotions I think

You certainly are, Errol, and as an ex- boy scout I can say that the entire message is most unseemly :-)

Whilst monkeys with typewriters and Shakespeare spring to mind, sheep with paper adhering to their paws comes a close second.

It gives one paws for thought :-D

Afternoon Mr Merlin sir. I hope you are having an absolutely wizard day.

A trip to Specsavers is not necessary - the Sheepsters can all help you through with your predicament.

I currently have a papyrussy predicament.

Goodmorning Errol - just received your signal - I'm off to Asd* shopping but before I go I would like to mention I had a Flibbertigibbet once and a female friend straightened it for me - she's my friend for life now.

I wasn't going to tell you how to get it off but I am a kind
soul so have a sheep dip doh. :-D :-D

I saw what you did there Allan ;-)

G'day to you Allan.

I apologise for the unseemly content of my semaphorical message.

Honestly, it meant to say "I need to get rid of this paper. I will give it my best shot"

I struggle with some vowels.

Afternoon Porkie Pie and GeordiePride.

GeordiePride could your "friend" help me out too".
My money is good.

GoldenGirl I shall try that as a last resort.

Errol - She's left handed so would this be a bit of a drawback. She prefers to be paid in kind.
