Good Evening FORKERS

Posted: 15/06/2013 at 18:15

Evening all. Just wanted to be the first at something.

Awful weather today, high winds, torrential rain and it's chilly.  Just popped heating on.

Never did think much of these surveys Fred. I don't think we need a survey to tell us what we already know, do you?

What's wrong with that Frank. It's their way of letting you know what they feel about you.  I know they probably show it all the time but it's that special day.

Two of mine have a competition as to who can get the showiest, slushiest card imaginable. The mantlepiece is the first thing they aim for when they come in and the first words are 'Let's see what he/she has managed this year'. Then they have a row - a friendly one, of course. 

My MD cards are still up! I suppose I will have to take them down now so FD ones can be on display.

Does anyone know the name of this tree please?

Huh, favouritism Kef.

Does anyone know the name of this tree please?

Verdun, you know I'm a numpty where knowing about plants/trees are concerned, but I've always found that the rooting system is very shallow, even if it spreads a bit.  I've had two that have just fallen down when the ground has been really sodden and there's high winds.  Dug one up that was growing in the lawn and it wasn't a case of getting through to Australia. I've honestly never found it/them to be a problem. Now, if we want to discuss Sycamore trees, that's a different matter.

My son will love the tree because his Mummy has given it to him.

Think my children would agree I would have made a good Sergeant Major, Frank.

Resurrecting again for any newcomers.

If all our wishes come true, you will have a fantastic day tomorrow WW. I'll be pleased to be able to uncross everything. Getting somewhat awkward.

I think you're an absolute star for putting yourself through all this work and, no doubt, anxiety. No matter what, you should be proud of yourself. I know I couldn't do it.

Like FG, I only wish I could make it too, but apart from the distance, I will be out of commission tomorrow.

I really love to watch all the ceremonial occasions. The precision of the soldiers is magnificant. I'm sure that, deep down, even though there's plenty of rehearsals, they wouldn't swap their places. Do wonder whether those shouting the orders suffer from sore throats for a few days!

I do know that Princess Anne has 'connections' with the uniform she dons, but I still don't think it's correct.  As for Edward, enough said.  I think it's an insult to whatever uniform he decides to wear at any particular event.  My daughter met him many years ago when she was on work experience at The Really Useful Company.  Don't think she was that impressed. She was eating a bag of hula hoops at the time and he asked what she was doing.  Fortunately, being a very well brought up girl, she was polite.  He was in his theatrical mode at the time. That lasted well too didn't it.

Do remember the late Princess Mary. Austere looking lady.

I don't like all the hangers on and wish they would be made to go out and earn their own living but I like the main players.  Been a fan since the Queen married in 1947. She was simply my Fairy Princess.

Gilly, my neighbours think it's funny.  It also takes frogs. Have enquired why they don't fit the cat  with a bell, but it's because the poor creature might hang himself if he gets caught up.  All the more reason for putting one on. 

I'm ducking.
