    A sad tale.
  2. Wouldn't call that too sad really.

    Married for 66 years, both 87 years old and both died doing something they enjoyed? (not getting electroctued) working in the garden.

    I can think of worse ways to go,

    and despite what you may have heard we all have to go at some time
  3. Sad story indead......but!!!!

    Early christmas for the children 500K house ? Thats the summer holidays sorted!!!!
  4. You are going to burn :p

    Don't forget Broon will get his 40% IHT :evil:
  7. At first I read the thread title as 'Elderly couple electrocuted by their mover.' I thought 'that's what you get for trying to domesticate the RLC.'

    :D :D :D
  9. Obviously there was still a lot of spark in their marriage...
  10. Still, on the bright side, the lawn looks nice.
  11. That's not strictly true, it's half-finished and there are a couple of scorch marks in the middle.
  12. Just goes to show ... smoking grass does kill.
  13. Shocking story! And in their own 'ohm too!!
  14. Do you think there'll be some resistance to that remark?
  15. Well it is current affairs.

    Very sad though. A plug in Residual Current Circuit Breaker only costs a few quid and would most likley have saved her and maybe him.

    As mentioned, the only winner out of this misery will be the Treasury with a slug of Inheritance Tax. Pure evil. :x
