Re: U.S. coin shortage

With the universal adoption of card payments even for small amounts the practical uses for actual coins have diminished very rapidly in recent months. I keep a coin in my wallet for getting a trolley out of the rack at the supermarket and as I recently described, I bought a 99 ice cream with a coin ...

Re: Skirts worn with a corset

B&B, Thank you very much for posting that wonderful hour of slow-paced entertainment. What a spectacular piece of infrastructure that canal is! You cut an equally spectacular figure in that kilt, I might add! I can easily see just why you need to tank-up frequently at waterside pubs to prevent that ...

Re: Skirts worn with a corset

B&B, Fortunately spilling paint tends not to be life-threatening, but always awkward to explain to the hire people at the end. On your canals with a very generous 1" lateral clearance either side entering locks there's absolutely no room for fenders and certainly none for error. A good idea to have ...

Skilfully done, B&B and I notice you didn't bury the bow in the far bank, which I have seen others do.

Re: Skirts worn with a corset

Now B&B if you were the Earth, your equator measurement would surpass that from pole to pole, so I expect you've still got plenty of room to manoeuver....44" versus 76"? A bit like a winding hole :idea:

Re: Out and About -- In the World at Large

Here all reopened gardening & DIY outlets hand you an 'obligatory' sanitized cart on entry. Curiously I find pushing the thing round comforting and one can almost hide behind it if one needs. My dark blue golf skort is the garb of choice for such outings. Nobody takes a blind bit of notice. To them ...

Re: Stay in school kids....

Yesterday was very hot towards late afternoon here. After my last victim I peeled off all my PPE, changed into tee & shorts and slid into my steed, Temp 28 deg C. Drove home via a favoured little store that sells 'Ninety nine' ice creams....a stand-up whirl of vanilla poured into & onto a wafer cone...

Re: To skort or not to skort?

I'm a fan of certain types of skort. A lot are far too skimpy and very 'femm' so I don't look at them. A agree that the shorts part needs to be light & stretchy, preserving perfect modesty even while parachuting (which I don't!) I also like decent pockets. The attached is a decent length and cut wit...

Horses for courses, NZF.

Being ,as they would say here, 'built like a jockey' you can enjoy yourself so.
Pachyderms like me have no chance. 6'2" and regular 34"+ round the middle.

Re: Some fun music

BL, Great entertainment on piano disc and wurlitzer. Together they make a formidable sound. I grew up listening to between-the-wars dance music on 78RPM shellac records, a large collection of which was assembled over the years by my parents who loved to dance to them. That tune (a quick-step) remind...

Re: Some fun music

Tut tut, Uncle Al, What a horrendous crashing noise! Fancy choosing a grating railway-shunting-yard track from a horror movie! All I can recall is that it was full of wicked witches and weird characters like the tin man, for instance. Should have been shut down by the censors or had a 10 Certificate...

Uncle Al, You're a Star. I'm only too aware of the very severe personal and family problems you are going through and you have my very best wishes and prayers on that front, but you remembered my Birthday!! Very many thanks. I joke that at my age I'm not counting anymore, but that's a lie, of course...

Re: It's all about "sex"

Jenn, What a splendid post. Wasn't Johnny Cash a National Treasure in his time ! I have always been a great fan and recently experienced a private tear-jerker. MOH's younger brother frequently sang 'Big Bad John' as a party piece for the family's enjoyment at gatherings and very sadly only in April ...

Re: Some fun music

What a dreadful cacophony, Carl. Wherever did you find that?

Punters might be interested to know that it was recorded under Lockdown conditions, the individuals being in communication with each other on the Net or by phone only. Just how they got it all together, I can only marvel at.

Re: Dame Vera Lynn

Dame Vera was indeed a National Treasure and a lovely person as well. She was blessed with a glorious sonority in her middle vocal range, in which all her material was pitched, so that lovely sound came through every single note she sang and it was effortless. All those songs were very singable and ...
