I always wanted one of them cottages but the Prince decreed otherwise...

Does Les (can't recall his surname) still live in one of these cottages, he ran Contrakill pest control and I haven't seen him around since the late 1980s early 1990s, I'd dropped off a cage trap because a vicious feral cat had been causing distress to the local domestic cats, I was put to another district so I've no idea if the cage was successful in trapping the said feral cat.

Veronica:Who would have thought Prince Charles would be that mean.

There was no room for that brown helicopter John .....

Veronica: Speaking of helicopters, I used to work for a large hospital on Merseyside, and I was trained to direct the medical helicopters to land.
When one of those things are coming to you, the urge to run is very strong.

Veronica, that is not brown, it was double chocolate luster.

I would imagine so John - and what a responsible job it was to be sure...
The sound of helicopters always remind me of the war film Apocalypse Now! - and indeed the newsreels st the time. That's going back some....

Ken your comment reminds me of an M&S advert - which you won't probably know of... "That isn't just chocolate ... It is M&S chocolate"!....

A few years ago when we were on vacation in UK, I was going from Aspull to Wigan by bus and I was attempting to cross the road to get to the bus stop , when I heard a low woop woop, I looked up and saw this large limousine with escorts front and back and they were not sticking to the speed limit, they passed me in a blink, that car was going to Wigan for the Queen to use, the color of the car was fantastic.
