There are men in shorts running about on my television.

At least OH is not shouting instructions.

:-D :-D :-D :-D

I saw a bloke in Salisbury yesterday, wearing a sheepskin jacket and shorts!
You'd have thought the need for the jacket may have indicated some need for leg covering! :-S

Happens all the time in winter here, Maggie.

All I could think of was those days I went primary and secondary school wearing shorts, and days of playing football wearing a short sleeve shirt and thin shorts, then skinning my knees on the frozen pitch :-0

B*gger that for a game of soldiers :-D

It's the men in white coats you need to be wary and aware of, Sharron...... or, in current jargon (and only because I is a young un -not) woke to!

Ain't it grand when one person resurrects an old word and much of the younger generation stumbles over itself to copy its usage (sometimes wrongly too)! Younger in this instance means younger than me so not at all hard to be. :-D :-D :-D

Must tell my bro about men in shorts as he played football until he was almost 50 - friendly, local matches of course but knowing him, I doubt it. :-0

Sheepskin jackets and shorts .... Maggie, my imagination has gone into overtime. :-D

Beggar me, I have digressed again! :-S
