    sorry ladies :D

    It's a UK expression for bad workmen who do not follow the normal practises and usually do poor work and want cash up front. They have the gift of the gab which means they say the right things so you think they know what they are talking about and their prices are normally reasonable

    Hence the reference to his horse being tied up at the front of the house.

    I think that sums it up, what do you think Julie, I know there are some other descriptions, but not on a Disney board

    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.
    Winne the Pooh - A A Milne



    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.

    I've just had a run in with the cowboy again, I am shaking from head to toe, have you ever tried typing when your hands won't stop shaking, it's not easy

    I happened to go out to put some rubbish in the bin as he was saying to my neighbour that the bloke next door had made a huge mess up (except he didn't say mess!)with the gate and he didn't see why he should have to put it right as he's not being paid for it - there is nothing wrong with our gate it's the mess the idot has made putting in the new fence that is the problem. When he spoke to me it was as if I was the little woman, who doesn't understand anything that is man's work. I spoke to Alan as I couldn't even look at the cowboy, I was shaking so much my sticks where wobbling. I said that I will speak to Chris tonight, but I have a feeling that Chris will not want anything doing until he comes home and can see it for himself.

    I am so angry with myself for letting that idiot get to me, I can stick up for other people, why can't I do it for myself :(

    Terry, it's definitely time to send down the boys

    Hmmm, I`ll have a look to see which is the best motorway concrete bridge foundation to choose.
    It sounds like he is a right plonker Wendy, and I know it ain`t easy, but try not to let him get to you.

    it might help. I went out to look at what he's done when he went home, he has attached wood to our path to support his posts.

    Chris should be home by about 3pm tomorrow (they worked until 7pm tonight so they could leave early) so he will see the moron then.
