Blimey, do they want me to drink and drive or don't they?..If they'd just make their flippin' minds up one road or t'other then I'd gladly oblige. It's orr this blimmin' dithering us ah corn't bi doin' wee.


Comment by Mick on 10th July 2018 at 06:46
What a good idea, you never know it might make some of these football mad men think.


Comment by Veronica on 10th July 2018 at 08:28
Its been a long,long time since it did - let's hope it does!
I wonder who 'did' 'didn't' think those few lines through properly.


Comment by Pat McC on 10th July 2018 at 09:02
Beautiful period houses in the background and then this horrible road sign highlighting the fact that we now live in a nanny state and can no longer be trusted to use our own common sense.
I wonder who thinks up these inane catchphrases ‘It’s coming home’, Brexit, ‘Keep Calm’ etc which consequently become part of our everyday language!


Comment by DTease on 10th July 2018 at 09:05
That grass looks like my back garden. Some one on the Telly recommended throwing your dishwater on the garden but how do you get it out of the machine?


Comment by Johnny on 10th July 2018 at 09:56
Its quite simple.
A message not to
Drink and Drive !


Comment by Poet on 10th July 2018 at 10:24
Pat, you would think that we in this of all towns would be more wary of the horrors of Orwellian 'newspeak'.


Comment by Alan on 10th July 2018 at 15:29
What it means is Don't drink and drive, but make sure YOU DO come home. "Read between the lines"


Comment by Howard P on 10th July 2018 at 15:33
I suspect it says DON'T DRINK AND DRIVE. MAKE SURE YOU YOU GET HOME.


Comment by Derek Platt on 10th July 2018 at 15:56
It should be don't drink and walk cos you'd bang into those bloody great supports.


Comment by Veronica on 10th July 2018 at 16:33
Its coming home my dear,make sure you do too and please don't drink and drive as I do worry about you my darling! ;0))
That's how it would be said in ' Brief Encounter'. As I'm sure Irene would agree!


Comment by DTease on 10th July 2018 at 18:10
So what do you think Ozy, Now that you've had it explained to you? Are you, like Theresa says "Very clear about that"?


Comment by . Ozymandias . on 10th July 2018 at 18:19
Aha!, so DTease has a fancy mechanical apparatus for washing his Royal Doulton dinnerware does he? I see. Well that certainly takes the lustre off my Aga somewhat, does it not?. When it comes to washing pots however, I prefer to let mine accumulate for several weeks, months on occasions in fact, before dumping them all into the bath then climbing in with them. Apart from anything else, It keeps me occupied whenever I grow weary of torpedoing the British fleet with my plastic submarine then setting off one or two depth charges. And then, when I've finished with the water, I use it to creosote my fence with.....Win win I reckon.

Regards. Oozy.


Comment by Poet on 10th July 2018 at 19:01
It's coming wom luv, mind that you do an'all and watch what tha suppin'cause I'm moidered bout thee luv.
More Wallgate than Carnforth perhaps Veronica?


Comment by Pat McC on 10th July 2018 at 19:06
Poet, how true. This constant use of ‘strap lines’ only serves to restrict rather than broaden our use of the English language.


Comment by irene roberts on 10th July 2018 at 19:07
Quite so, Veronica, my dear!


Comment by DTease on 10th July 2018 at 22:52
Oozy, if you put yourself and the pots in the bath do you have to shove the coal for your Aga up the tap end?


Comment by Veronica on 10th July 2018 at 23:05
It's rather worrying to know Ozy sets depth charges off in his tin bath - I hope it's not still hanging on a hook in the back yard.....


Comment by . Ozymandias . on 11th July 2018 at 05:39
The depth charges are fairly innocuous actually Veebs, and relatively ozone friendly, well virtually, but following Das Boot's severe mauling at the hands of a couple of my frigates the other evening, I did feel it prudent to get up and open a window.


Comment by Poet on 11th July 2018 at 08:45
Words are very rascals....grown so false I am loath to prove reason with them.

Twelfth Night.
