    GMOB - from about as far north as you can get without being a full-blown porridge-walloper.

    Northern bigot; go tend your sheep, or wallop your horse, or herd the dogs, or massage your ferrets, or whatever it is you do in those uncultivated regions.


    BTW, I do not drink shandy. I have been known to drink a pint or two of Yorkshire ale, because my son married a foreigner and I'm morally obliged to see him and this kids every couple of years. But generally we [and he and his OH] prefer a good Chardonnay, or Merlot, from the Antipodes. [Antipodes are not horse pills, they're a place].

    Do you own a Cardie? Or a shed? Or a 'barn'?

    The exposed hose-reel adds a distinctive Northern touch to the frontage of this excellent rural property ... :)

    I rest my case, and non-existent cardie, M'Lud.

    T'aint the front - it's the back! And garden hoses are allowed in back gardens!

    Funnily enough I can't find a nice picture of the front. Wonder why :?

    And I lied - I just remembered I have got a cardie but GrandmaMOB ses it ent fit to be seen dead in :cry:

    Oh and it ent rural. It's smack in the middle of town. So :party:

    Cardies should be placed in the same category as baseball caps, with a "Proof of Age" requirement before purchase.

    Baseball caps only sold to those over 20, with a parental permit.
    Cardies only sold to those over 80, with a parental permit.

    Women are, of course, entitled to do whatever they like ... as usual. :D

    I think that's what you wanted to say. Tsk! Now, where's my pipe?? Oh, in my cardie pocket.

    Something like that, but I didn't want to cause offense.

    BTW ...as "The Former Pipe Smoker known as Mr. Cool" ... I never put any of my pipes in a cardie pocket. For obvious reasons. :)
