Morning everybody.  Some rain overnight and cloudy with some drizzle right now

Looking to replace this old iPad .......playing up a bit lately.  I've given  it a final warning   So far the best deal for basic, non latest model is from John Lewis if their free 2 year warranty is included.  Frustratingly, can't haggle over Apple products 

Hope everyone has a good day

Ha ha.  In my late teens and early twenties I grew a beard every winter and shaved it off every spring to get a tan.....wot a poser!   My niece won't allow me to grow a beard now ...says she will shave half of it off in the  middle of the night.  It will though be a grey/blonde one and, yes, it will be clogged up with cake Bekkie 

Panda, well we can see your picture so we domt need to guess.  However, clearly you are a tree and bamboo lover as well as a protector of the planet.   I imagine a very pleasant soul though ....prob rhe ideal next door neighbour to borrow a cup,of sugar from perhaps ?

Hiya Orchid .....just have to take each day as it comes.  Enjoy now and not worry about tomorrow.

I'm aware now of what my dad used to say...."life is short boy". I've seen life change dramatically this year (for my mum and for others) and aware too of something someone  told me,viz., that "nothing stays the same".

Fishy, no flat cap, etc. Just 2 inches short of you  (happy with that as I wanted to be the height of a famous heavyweight boxer when at school)   and, eerily,  some of the posters are fairly accurate.  Have to re read the posts but he is an outdoor guy, pipe smoker and a ....hey....a fisherman.  Prob too a polite, well mannered guy

Fairy?  Strong, glowing tan, determined, small and outspoken? perhaps an expletive or two
