It's coming home
Blimey, do they want me to drink and drive or don't they?..If they'd just make their flippin' minds up one road or t'other then I'd gladly oblige. It's orr this blimmin' dithering us ah corn't bi doin' wee.
What a good idea, you never know it might make some of these football mad men think.
Its been a long,long time since it did - let's hope it does!
I wonder who 'did' 'didn't' think those few lines through properly.
Beautiful period houses in the background and then this horrible road sign highlighting the fact that we now live in a nanny state and can no longer be trusted to use our own common sense.
I wonder who thinks up these inane catchphrases ‘It’s coming home’, Brexit, ‘Keep Calm’ etc which consequently become part of our everyday language!
That grass looks like my back garden. Some one on the Telly recommended throwing your dishwater on the garden but how do you get it out of the machine?
Its quite simple.
A message not to
Drink and Drive !
Pat, you would think that we in this of all towns would be more wary of the horrors of Orwellian 'newspeak'.
What it means is Don't drink and drive, but make sure YOU DO come home. "Read between the lines"
I suspect it says DON'T DRINK AND DRIVE. MAKE SURE YOU YOU GET HOME.
It should be don't drink and walk cos you'd bang into those bloody great supports.
Its coming home my dear,make sure you do too and please don't drink and drive as I do worry about you my darling! ;0))
That's how it would be said in ' Brief Encounter'. As I'm sure Irene would agree!
So what do you think Ozy, Now that you've had it explained to you? Are you, like Theresa says "Very clear about that"?
Aha!, so DTease has a fancy mechanical apparatus for washing his Royal Doulton dinnerware does he? I see. Well that certainly takes the lustre off my Aga somewhat, does it not?. When it comes to washing pots however, I prefer to let mine accumulate for several weeks, months on occasions in fact, before dumping them all into the bath then climbing in with them. Apart from anything else, It keeps me occupied whenever I grow weary of torpedoing the British fleet with my plastic submarine then setting off one or two depth charges. And then, when I've finished with the water, I use it to creosote my fence with.....Win win I reckon.
It's coming wom luv, mind that you do an'all and watch what tha suppin'cause I'm moidered bout thee luv.
More Wallgate than Carnforth perhaps Veronica?
Poet, how true. This constant use of ‘strap lines’ only serves to restrict rather than broaden our use of the English language.
Quite so, Veronica, my dear!
Oozy, if you put yourself and the pots in the bath do you have to shove the coal for your Aga up the tap end?
It's rather worrying to know Ozy sets depth charges off in his tin bath - I hope it's not still hanging on a hook in the back yard.....
The depth charges are fairly innocuous actually Veebs, and relatively ozone friendly, well virtually, but following Das Boot's severe mauling at the hands of a couple of my frigates the other evening, I did feel it prudent to get up and open a window.
Words are very rascals....grown so false I am loath to prove reason with them.
