    Default Covid Humour.......

    Three guys came into the shop wearing masks - we were truly scared until they said "This is a hold up"!

    Wow, thanks for your contribution to MY thread bluedog

    By the way, I just had this vital heads-up from a reliable source in England:
    "If you get an email from the Department for Health saying not to eat tinned pork because it contains Covid-19 ignore it. It’s spam."

    We have a neighbor here who offered to mow our other neighbor's yard if she would give him the yard car in it. She declined, but counter offered as in TD's post, minus the donut. First neighbor declined

    A friend's grandkid has just had a birthday; the cake was a special virus cake. Hemispherical, using a basin, bright green icing, and red smarties /M&Ms dotted all over it.
    The wee lad killed the virus with a knife!

    Talented with the .22 as well!
    The old man's lithgow long barrel .22 was a very accurate rifle. I used to love going rabbit shooting with it.
    Glad your getting professional help re the bunny trauma. A coopers stout from the boats ice box will do me. I just finished a coat of Tung oil on Rodney, the deck

    Excellent!

    @ post # 23: Doesn't work with all ribbon, but lay it flat on the sharp edge of some scissors & pull it over that edge fairly rapidly. Repeat until you have as much curl as you want.

    The Dixie Chicks have a new single out called Gaslighter - about Natalie Maines' breakup with her ex.

    She has a bit of fun with the song & Trump:

    There's a national trend away from Cadbury, big H. Ever since they went to palm oil and shut down the Dunedin plant 'we' have shifted to Whittakers for chocolate and good ole tip top will do nicely for the ice cream.

    That's interesting you mix the stout with the tung oil to make a resilient and everlasting wood preservative. Every good wood sealer needs something toxic to keep the bugs out.
