Any more requests for delivery on 18th?

Yes please. Pete.

May I have a shed delivered please. No ordinary shed, not your B&Q, or Homebase nonsense. Must be  built from Travis Perkins and D G Heath (Pontardulais) best timber stock.  Then will you fill the space in the middle with several tons of road scalpings, and make a floor from 6"x2" CLS joists sheeted with 3/4" exterior grade ply? Walls must be 4"x2" CLS at 14"/16" centres. Apex roof from same material please, sheeted with exterior grade plywood. The roof must have 2 layers of bitumen roofing roll.

Thanks Pete,

Rob  xx

Can't believe it. A model shop has just opened near where I live. It's called 'The Loco Shed'. 

Every time I drive past it, I'm going to have visions of Messrs, Tuck, Nation, Gough, and others staring at me, wagging their finger and laughing in that scary, shrieking, psychotic kind of a way .... Nightmare!!!

It's the drugs that are doing that to you Rob .......

We don't wag our fingers when we're not on the drugs.
Boldly going.......

I see Tuck's p*ss*d again.........   :)


Right then, will be driving past the Loco Shed Model Shop tomorrow morning, just like I will be doing on many days.

Over  the front door, they've got three gargoyles, bearing an uncanny resemblance to Tuck, Nation and Gough. I see the Tuck one as playing in fields surrounded by giant mushrooms with white tops and big red circles, fluttering butterflies and a bloke with a red hat and a number 5 on the front carrying a monkey wrench. Could be the cover of a Helps album. I see the Nation gargoyle sat behind a mixing desk. But when he twiddles the knobs, he's not creating a sublime Crinty 2, oh no, he's regulating the speed of a piggin' steam train with a big smiley moon face on the front. A black and white cat and a postman are also in situ. The Gough gargoyle is rolling a woodbine and racing a whippet. 
You know, I've got to go past this Loco  Model Shop thing most days for the rest of my life. For someone brought up on Subbuteo and Scalextric, I feel like I've had my 24 years of......well 52 actually, of fun and frivolity, and now I am to face hell and damnation, in eternity for ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever....................and ever..............and ever .............

 ;D

Blimey! What a townie.
The mushrooms in question are red with white excrescences.
Well known for the Sami shamen to drink the urine of reindeer that have pigged out on fly agaric and basically go right out of their Crints.

Yes, but more important, why am I now up to 78 on the smite thing?

In my cricketing days, highest ever score was a proud 82. Never got a century. if I did, I'd have had a little photo of me on the clubhouse wall. Looks like I'm going to get my best ever score. Hope I dont get run out or something.   

And yes, I'm a townie. Until we move to Greenmount or something which is hopefully on the agenda some time in the future......if I have one!
