Fred and his mate brought in some cherry plums on one of their scrumping missions so I made jam with them.

I think there must be something addictive in cherry plum jam because, every time he has his lunch at home, Fred wants bread and jam. Is it any wonder the poor old chap has to spend his own money on eating out when that's all he gets.

It's that daughter of his that I blame. She takes all his money, apart from the pocket money she gives him and spends it on fripperies like electricity and council tax.

It's not me.

You can try negotiating with him if you like but he is very possessive about his jam. It is, after all, the only thing he has to eat at home.

What about me trading some sausages of his choice for a jar ;-)

I know somebody who hasn't got the number of the Social Services!

Sausages need to be freshly fried and nestled between two pieces of white sliced.

Sharron

Sharron Report 13 Sep 2013 20:48

I don't cook sausage sandwiches. He has to go out and buy them.

Can you get sausage sandwiches on the Caribbean island?

I will get him to pack the jam.

that's why I prefer the mustard!!

LOL ;-)

I don't know what he has on them. I am not included in this part of his life.

He travels to his special place where I am not welcome to partake of his sausage sandwich.

Think Freemasons.
