    I do enjoy the 'lets wear as little as possible' custom though, although it can be a bit off putting when they get the 20 stone range.
    Chunder, alternatively, technicolor yawns, I can tell you've picked up on the
    Colonial lingo on your down under trip ! Reminders of the now defunct but hardly lamented ancient antipodean custom of the 6 o'clock swill, nowt compares!

    If 20 stone is your cut off limit then that could be ignoring maybe 50% of
    the show ! Still I suppose you've got to set standards.

    I'd happily oblige with a few specific pics, but I have to consider the implications, Admin. would have to create yet another forum section and thinking up a title name would probably give him a migraine.
    Hold on.......The Black Hole has just become available once more, nah totally unsuitable.
    You'll just have to use your imagination.

    Yes that's another one I fancy Sue. Our eldest daughter lived in Slawit for a number of years, but we still never managed to go to it.

    Ha that reminds me of a time at the local market, the other half was busy talking to a mate when a young lass walked past a clothing stall with a mirror on the floor propped up against a wall, our mate said 'did ya see that she's got no knickers on!', hubby was a bit upset as he had missed it.

    I'd love to know why we never visit stuff on our doorstep, but will happily travel to see something not a million miles different.
