Hi SMS . . . ain't it the truth!

Have some free time on my hands, calm before the storm - went to Sri Lanka for a few weeks on business and now it is clean-up time . . .

So, how come you attract riff-raff bigots like that Fahim thing nowadays . . . just when Superglide left (again). :)

The guy whose photo doesn't have much hair went to Tony & Guy for what, cut his so called few strangs of dyed hair or some shave underneath so that it doesn't hurt when you rattle.

Vucloose, go to some pub have some beer, come back and post again. dont forget to eat donkey meat. (barbequed). sorry, correct with red fonts.

Oi! Funnies?...............Where?

Oh, hiiiimmmmm. He's funny but I think it's called 'Tragic Humour' isn't it?

Yeah, V., we needed some new fodder since your favourite sparring partner spit out his dummy again!

How's that young'un doing? Walking by now I suppose?

What is it with this guy and donkey meat? Weird. They are getting younger and younger

Yes, thanks, SMS. She is walking, talking, running, falling, swimming, sinking and in bed by 19.30 every night so she can have a nice slumber until 07.00 the next morning . . . and seeing she is in her terrible twos is something one can only wish for.

You're still slogging it out in Singapore then . . . isn't it about time you went home? (though I do know why you stay and that is still commendable!)

OzChick - I'm just trying to get us ALL back on topic here...

As mentioned, my wife and I paid for our own wedding (admittedly, it was small-ish). Did you try to chat with the other parties concerned? My brother-in-law and his new wife got married recently - there was like a 1:3 ratio of his (ours) to her (read: her mum's!!!) guests. It was all long and suffering as we had a divorce on new wife side (her parents) and endless bits of grief.

However, I mention this because, with a formal meeting between the parents and the kids, eventually it was all resolved.

I'll put a disclaimer on this, however. They are from a southern state of Australia where dipping people in vats of acid has become a passtime, rather than a crime.

Best of luck with it all - a special day for your daughter.


HTH, P & C

[Edited: only ONE spelling mistake this time! - not bad given I have a cold!]

eat donkey meat
I had Billi Rubin for dinner yesterday with liver and kidneys, very nice too :devil: Much better than donkey meat :wink: You didn't know that I was born in the valley, right in the crevice, beyond the bushy, where all the cotton tails like to burrow (investigate) O:)

I think I'm starting to come round to ksl's idea of advertising. On the surface, it comes across as primitive but there's actually a lot of finesse involved. Kinda like killing your opponent with a thousand paper cuts. :lol:
