I take it you're head of the local neighbourhood watch committee David 

I hope I still feel like going out dancing on a Saturday night when I'm 90 

As I said upthread, OL, quite often I'm the taxi driver.

Bekkie....while I mentioned  'dancing', she did also say something about 'total abstinence and a fish diet'.

Secret, bekkie....dancing. She has always been a keen dancer (waltz, foxtrot, quickstep) that kind of thing. Her husband (Albert) used to have his own band in the 50s and this is how they met.....he was the drummer, but now sadly not as fit as his OH.

Your clock must be wrong David, I got her back before midnight but she decided the night was not yet over, some time later she got out of the car singing and I went home in a bedraggled state.

Frank.

 

 Frank - she would be perfect for you, Frank.... I'll not tell Albert.

Moi! Curtain twitcher? I'm the one either being or ordering the taxi most of the time.

I do admire her so much, she is as fit as a flea.....eat your heart out Kristina Rihanoff,

.....last night a taxi picked up my 93 year old neighbour to take her dancing and she leaves her poor 90 y o husband to look after himself and she doesn't get back until after midnight......this happens every Saturday night!

Tut tut.

Before someone reminds me, I must add to my previous post, that SP seed will remain viable for several years if stored properly i.e. stored in an airtight tin & kept in a cool place, such as a unheated garage.

The fact remains that all seeds germination rate decreases with age.

I would just say, that SP seed will keep for another year or even longer......best remember (as with all seed) the germination rate decreases the older it is.

Yes it was Eagle, I went for the Chelsea collection just my kind of colours. Hope the perfume is good.

 

Ah, good  I thought the 'Chelsea Collection' seemed to fit the bill, but wasn't  sure about quantity of seed & price you were thinking of.

Be assured, their perfume won't disappoint.
