      Rent it the house to pay the mortgage, and go travelling with the wife. I did this back in the 90's visited both USA and Canada, loved every minute and glad we done it.

      Wouldn't mind that idea, do you think a tenant would mind the wife being here?

      Sorry to hear. Happened to me in various forms 5 times now... Worst is when people start taking credit in your name...

      ....and then there's "vishing"

    4. locoholic


      Nightmare. Hope it's sorted soon.

  6. 6 years ago this evening I was flat on my back in hospital wondering if I was going to follow the person in the next cubicle

  7. Am I mad? With what I've been doing today quite possibly. Am I happy? You bet!!!

  8. Manchester Oford Road station earlier, mini brass oompah type band strike up with Christmas carols. It's 14th November!!! Felt like shoving the tuba where the sun don't shine, blunt end first!!!

  9. Lousy couple of days, had to have one of our cats put to sleep yesterday, then friends horse died overnight. you can't bury a horse like a cat. Not nice all round. No more tragedy please.

    1. Re6/6

      Definitely, she's over 20 keeps losing her sight, but it comes back(?) and permanent diarrhea, yuk!

    3. BrushVeteran


      I'm almost in a similar position with my cat and she is only 16. She is loing weight rapidly and drinking loads of water so the kidneys are obviously failing. She is getting more in need of a litter tray but ssems to have the strength to keep going. I don't want her to suffer but it is knowing the right time which can be difficult. I do sympathisse with you though and have had plenty of cats to tell the tale about. The good thing is that they are all very different so you never really...

      Sorry to hear. Had my dog put down last year and it's very hard - have to remember that it is the right thing for them.


      BrushVeteran, when my vet was discussing my dog's final visit he said to me to look at their "good" days and "bad" days. If you start getting more bad days than good then it's time.

  11. Very very relieved, friends granddaughter home from hospital. Seem to think more of them than my own at times, is this dangerous?

  12. Had some shock news, friends granddaughter in hospital after being kicked by one of their horses. Fingers, toes and everything else crossed!

    1. Horsetan


      She'll be fine. Horse people are indestructible.

      My dad drives a 1.2, I drive a 6.2, so yes you can be jealous of your sons car.

    3. Horsetan


      If he drives a classic car, you might be even more jealous.

      If it's foil backed use evostik.

      Done it a few times.

    2. Merc435


      Or a flexible gap adhesive like Grip fill, but use the Non-solvent version or the polyboard will melt and you might want to avoid the poisonous fumes!

  22. Me knobs have turned up! They were in a bag with towels to go to the caravan????
