  11. Absolutely stunning Tony. All the above posts say it all. It has been a pleasure to watch this project unfold and a learning curve as well, all those "Black Arts". Looking forward to the next project, whatever it may be. Simon.
  12. A wealthy man and his wife are going to a function, so they decide to give the butler the night off. However, a couple of hours later the wife was bored, so she leaves the party and goes home, only to find the butler sitting alone at the table. She orders the butler upstairs to her bedroom, where she locks the door... "Jeeves," she commands, "take off my hat." Jeeves promptly obeys. "Now, Jeeves," she says, "take off my dress." He obeys. "Now, Jeeves, please remove my underwear." Breaking into a nervous sweat, Jeeves complies. "Now Jeeves," the wife says, "if I should ever catch you wearing my clothes again..." Simon.

  17. A lady goes to her priest one day & tells him: ''Father, I have a problem. I have two female parrots, but they only know to say one thing.'' "What do they say?" the priest asked. They say, ''Hi, we're hookers! Do you want to have some fun?'' ''That's obscene!'' the priest exclaimed, Then he thought for a moment...... "You know,'' he said, ''I may have a solution to your problem. I have two male talking parrots, which I have taught to pray and read the Bible... Bring your two parrots over to my house, & we'll put them in the cage with Francis and Peter. My parrots can teach your parrots to pray and worship, & your parrots are sure to stop saying that phrase in no time.'' ''Thank you,' the woman responded, 'this may very well be the solution.'' The next day, She brought her female parrots to the priest's house....As he ushered her in, she saw that his two male parrots were inside their cage holding rosary beads & praying... Impressed, She walked over & placed her parrots in the cage with them... After a few minutes, The female parrots cried out in unison: "Hi, we're hookers! Do you want to have some fun?" There was stunned silence... Shocked, one male parrot looked over at the other male parrot & says... 'Put the beads away, Frank, Our prayers have been answered !!! Simon.
  18. That is great news Frank, just take it easy mate. No straining etc!!! Simon.
  19. Good to hear that you have been done so to speak. Just take it steady when you come out mate. Simon.
  20. That was quick Fozzy, looks fantastic mate. Hope all goes well with the move. Simon.
  21. Just caught up on this one Johnny. Getting tantalisingly near to the completion of these builds. And they both look great. Have a stress free day as you can mate. Simon.
  22. An elderly Florida lady did her shopping and, upon returning to her car, found four males in the act of leaving with her vehicle. She dropped her shopping bags and drew her handgun, proceeding to scream at the top of her lungs, “I have a gun, and I know how to use it! Get out of the car!”. The four men didn’t wait for a second threat. They got out and ran like mad. The lady, somewhat shaken, then proceeded to load her shopping bags into the back of the car and got into the driver’s seat. She was so shaken that she could not get her key into the ignition. She tried and tried, and then she realized why. It was for the same reason she had wondered why there was a football, a Frisbee and two 12-packs of beer in the front seat. A few minutes later, she found her own car parked four or five spaces farther down. She loaded her bags into the car and drove to the police station to report her mistake. The sergeant to whom she told the story couldn’t stop laughing. He pointed to the other end of the counter, where four pale men were reporting a carjacking by a mad, elderly woman described as white, less than five feet tall, glasses, curly white hair, and carrying a large handgun. No charges were filed. The moral of the story? If you’re going to have a senior moment… make it memorable. Simon
