There is a great story on the TV news tonight. At a Bull fight in Spain a Bull got very ratty an climbed over the fence into the crowd. Luckily he managed to get at a pile of the crowd. Good for the Bull I say it's a pity he couldn't get the bloodthirsty lot of them. He's gonna die anyway. I make NO appologies for my thoughts on this. Sheldonboy.

Posted by signmanJust got in from trhe pub, bored out of my brains, don't ever anyone tell you that retirement is great, it's not.
Thats just it John, us old experienced retiree's realise just how crushingly soul destroying it can be. At least you can get out and do a bit of part time. I have to admit that since I retired I have had some wonderful offers, of work that is. In fact I could be making twice the amount of money I did when working for about a third of the hours.
The trouble is the wife would kill me, she knows there is no such thing as part time with me.

Good morning your Ladyship. I have had a late start this morning my sand is being delivered to start my block paved patio area. Some sunshine or a little bit of daylight would be appreciated. But before I do that there is on even more important job and you know what that is. SB
