    Old girlfriend = ex-girlfriend, therefore....

    Publish the Picture HERE!

    (Scanning in should remove most of the stain marks on it)
     
  11. Triple squash sacks of Lucozade.......with the centre one of each emptied, refilled with Laphroig and then super glued shut.
    Dictaphone to send a receive "chats".
    Anglo-American dictionary.
     
  12. Haha, I would have loved to post them, they were'nt totally filthy, more "artistic & provocative" Unfortunately, the next girlfriend found and destroyed them :( (jealous cow)
     
  13. An empty McDonalds BigMac carton, with several sachets of ketchup attached, sent to me from Maj Boothroyd who was still in Kuwait having to send his laundry north. My own fault for sending him a " WARDODGER, you'll be wearing your medal below the pocket for this tour" bluey, I suppose.
