The satnav in our car happens to be me My wife does the driving without my advice you see On holiday in Cannes, we heard of the race track With its twists and dangerous bends so My wife's eyes lit up, let's hire a car, give it a go. Too dangerous, it's for the pro's, not for the likes of us My wife glared at me, God, you do make a fuss. But I held firm, gave her no slack We ended up walking every inch of the track Except for the last two hundred yards or so Where pedestrians were not allowed to go. One year on, in Majorca for awhile We have to hire a car if you want to see the isle And so she drove me to the other side We spotted a sign, 'Snakes Pass' it said She stopped the car, 'You in or out' I nodded my head. Completed safely with glee From that day on, not another 'peep' out of me.

Memo to Rob - maybe we need a "Like" button? When LesMac and Kaga send in little gems like these recent ones, I'm forced to spend lots of time thinking of a worthy response, when really a "Like" would probably be acceptable!

Oops, nearly missed this one, sorry! That could be a really good idea actually Johnnie - but if only it was as simple as just adding a "Like" button to the page! It'll take a bit of thinking about, as we'd need the button to only be available to signed in members, and also record the IP address of each member who clicks the button for each individual post, and then monitor if anyone pressing it has already done so previously for that post, to prevent one person just refreshing the page lots of times to bump up the score, and also disable the button for anyone's own post.... etc. But apart from that, plus any other things I haven't yet thought about.... it should be quite simple, so I'll give it a go some time! Lol Thumbs up

Well, I've given it a go... let's see if it works! Wink Currently, it's a "one way" thing though - one click of the thumbs-up symbol adds a "like" - but it cannot be undone.

There was a camping shop behind the gas showrooms. A girl asked the salesman if they sold 'hammocks'. "Yes what exactly are you looking for?" "Well something big enough for me, but strong enough for two." Two mates unwrapped a bacon butty in the pub. "Do you like the end bits?" "Not particu'ly". So he cut it in half, and gave himself and his mate half each.

When I was a kid we had an allotment and I once asked the old man who had the next plot what the difference was between a weed and a flower. He said, if you pull a plant up and it grows back again then it's a weed, if it doesn't grow back it was a flower.

Evidence has been found that William Tell and his family were avid bowlers. Unfortunately, all the Swiss League records were destroyed in a fire, and so we'll never know for whom the Tells bowled.

A man walks into a pub and sees three men and a dog playing poker. He says to the barman, ''Blimey that must be one really clever dog''. ''Not really'' says the barman. ''Everytime he gets a good hand his little tail starts wagging''.

The farm track led from the main road past the old farmhouse a mile away and then on another half-mile to a country lane. On the opposite side of the track to the farm was an old brick building that had been the old tool shed, next to that was the hen house, both had seen better days. It was a warm August morning - in the kitchen of the farm sat semi-retired farmer George Jones enjoying his mid-day glass of beer and the morning paper, his dog lay close by. Through the window sailed a happy little fly - the fly repeatedly crossed his brow and the paper, he brushed it aside. Mr Jones at last rose from his chair, crunched the newspaper and swiped. The beer glass crashed to the floor, the dog barked, his wife at the kitchen sink jumped, then rushed out of the door to find the mop, accompanied by the fly. The dog started to lick the beer, Jones swung his hob-nailed boot at the dog's rump, the dog yelped then ran out of the door, tripping up the wife who dropped the mop bucket on her husband's toes, the dog tore down the yard and across the farm track, just as Jones's son was about to pass on his tractor. The boy turned the wheel hard to the right, jumped off the back of the tractor to tend the dog, the tractor careered on, smashing like a battering ram into the tool shed, that collapsed in an ear-splitting roar. When the dust had cleared they saw the hen house had been flattened also. They gave no heed to the torn web of a spider with a flattened fly in the kitchen porch.

In the Navigation pub, the men were discussing 'arry's odd sayings. 1st guy : 'arry and Bill had knocked stakes in for the foundations of the new school, they put a plank across the stakes and then the level. Bill : 'I think that's spot on 'arry; reckon so, and then some. 2nd guy : 'arry was in the churchyard, people were saying the new grave digger was not getting the graves level, the coffins were tilted. 'arry : If he does that with mine, he'll not get a b----- good word from me. 3rd guy : You know 'arry has had his allotment about three years, it had been neglected for years, all stinging nettles and bramble, but 'arry has made a good job of it. Approached by the parson who, looking over the gate one day, said, 'You and the good Lord have made a capital job of your garden this year, 'arry.' 'Ya-as' replied 'arry, 'You ought to a 'sin' it when 'e' ad it to' issalf.'

With the state of our roads I begin to wonder if the potholes are a motorcyclist's escape to 'middle-earth'
