The view from the Naughty Step can be deceptive, with light refraction off the water and the fact that you should still be in Okehampton.

I'm not certain if Okehampton has enough room for too many more N.S. interns would it be possible to transfer them to Tar Steps to free up what is quickly becoming an overcrowded lump of granite ?

OK let's get it over with:

Sand, Lego, New, Andrew, https://en.wikipedia...astle_(surname) blah de blah de blaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.

Castle Drogo

 

P.S it will probably be No.14 then

 

Loads missing from that list according to my ABC Combined Volume

Tesco's is your best bet Tim.

 

I shall have to have a look in our branch then - might actually be worth buying with my 10% discount (but I bet they won't have it here although they did once have BRM on the shelves, just once)

What about Chulmleigh then? I knew a young woman from there (not in the Biblical sense I have to point out) in 1966. 

I think there was a model railway shop in  Chulmleigh?

Chulmleigh ? Ya gettin' closer to Norf Devun, a few inbreds there !  :jester: Would it be easier to give you a list of the villages where it is safe to go ?

There was a shop just off the Square but closed several years ago and I believe the stock was/is sold off on various auction sites.

Taw Valley Trains, shared with a News Agents when I went there. They had a small club running as well, a OO layout and were getting together a 7mm one as well. ( Bit of encouragement for him on the naughty step)
Incidentally the Indian Restaurant does the best take-away in the area.

Cheers, my luvver, by the way, but I've still got a pair of 50p crapola ones from Tesco that t'Missus didn't want for Christmas, so I don't need any more tweezers right now. I'll change my mind when this fellow has sold out.

Is that why they're painted green instead of brown?

You would have thought a green chair would be appropriate since you are the main occupant- or is it brown as part of the correction process?
