Thanks, Sharron. They certainly look pleased with their day's haul.

It is great to be able to picture people when we read about them.

Must dash, off to the dentist this morning. :-0

Thanks Sharron.Great photo of Fred, he certainly doesn't look over 90 in this one!!

Had to laugh at your 'subject', "the dung men cometh"


Sharron Report 17 Jun 2013 10:20

I like to think of it as global notoriety!


Huia Report 17 Jun 2013 09:48

Sharron, I also love your stories, and I used to enjoy Last of the Summer Wine, so if you don't mind, I would love to see a photo of him.

He is world famous, you know (I am in New Zealand).



Claddagh Report 17 Jun 2013 09:33

I would love to see the photo of Fred.Like many of us, I follow all your posts about him...even though it can't always be a bed of roses for you, you still manage to tell the stories with great humour.


Sharron Report 16 Jun 2013 23:30

I am more the Aunty Wainwright figure. not glamorous enough for Norah batty!

Yes, I think so.

Wouldn't want to worry him by recognising him if I'm in your area, but at least I could say "Ah, there goes Fred on his forays " if I caught sight of him in his busy life.



Sharron Report 16 Jun 2013 18:02

So, is that how you expected him to look?

I sort of feel I know him from your various posts of his antics, but would love to see if I have a correct imagined picture of him., please.

Sharron Report 16 Jun 2013 13:29

I thought I had sent you one. I must have sent it to somebody else.

It is no good going for his money. I've got that. Pension, Attendance Allowance, Council Pension ( he was a cesspit man, hence the hobby !) , AND the rent rebate.


ButtercupFields Report 16 Jun 2013 13:26

Don't mind that floozie Golden Girl, she is only after his money :-D Come on Sharron, I have been waiting....*be still my beating heart <3
