    In order to retain my grumpy, self opinionated status Mr Hilldweller (due to his recent outburst) has forced me to make the following statements (all of which I truly meen)

    Cant see the point in..............

    1 - not having a fixed bed
    2 - having to make your bed up every night
    3 - not having a garage
    4 - wild camping on a car park or lay by
    5 - taking dogs on holiday
    6 - watching tv in your motorhome

    I await the inevitable fall out.......
    Feel free to add your own.

    PS
    I would add a tongue in cheek smiley but hey ho...

    SMALL PRINT
    Blame Mr Hilldweller for making me prove my grumpiness :BigGrin:

    1. Due to nature of trade I have to maximise interior space and minimise exterior size
    (ie: not waste space)

    2. To the well initiated, making the bed takes under two minutes, base, cushions,sheets, covers.

    3. You are on holiday - garage is just a mans' hand bag - full of junk you will probably never need!

    4. The beauty of a motorhome is that you can stop anywhere when you are tired. I deally wild camp in a nice spot, but if you are in transit, why not a lay by overnight?

    5. Dogs enjoy holidays too - just make sure you have air con on board and running if they are left for more than 2 minutes. They can be a bind sometimes - just depends on where you are going and what you are doing.

    6. TV is there for news and weather.....so if it looks like rain the rest of the week, you can utilise a motorhomes best atribute - unhook and chase some sunshine!

    You know it makes sense!

    I could have written that myself. See you can do it if you try.

    Apart from 6. We enjoy a good DVD or the occasional bike race in the van. We take a collection of the best films/programs we want to watch again. Brittas Empire, Bit of a Do all in stock. We watched Casablanca somewhere in Morocco, they don't make 'en like that any more. Followed by Maltese Falcon.

    You must need a fixed bed because you're a 'Lover Machine'.
    Any time, any place, any where you need may need to test out your Vans suspension.

    Oh dear! There is no hope - you have passed the mark, when old age grumpiness passes a certain stage, there is only one thing left.......i think it was time you became a Club Warden!!

    That's twice today I've had a coffee/keyboard interface over summat Mr Hilldweller has posted.

    :Rofl1: :Rofl1: :Rofl1: :Rofl1:

    So Brian, would you say you are more like Eddie Merckz or Lance Armstrong, and are you as entertaining and informative as David Duffield when giving a commentary?

    Sorry fully with your wife and 17yr old daughter as in your profile.:Wink:

    However you are taking lessons off the master of grumpyness mr Hilldweller himself.
    Trust me you will have a long way to go before you meet Brians levels but good luck..

    Incedently--
    dogs? part of my family, if i go and she can come she does.

    each to their own on layout.

    stopping in a car park? why don't you go and get a caravan then, its what motorhomes were made for.

    Watching tv in a motorhome? well once again each to there own, I love to catch up with the days events with a little whiskey and or watch a good old movie whilst the rain hammers it down on my roof.

    Oh dear, I don't know any of those. I've just looked them all up, still none the wiser.

    When it comes to humour I grew up with The Goons, though I don't think they stand the test of time, to Spike on his own, then the wonderful dry northern humour of Les Dawson with his wonderful verbal images "I knew your mother was coming the rats were throwing themselves on the traps".

    Good to see you've forgiven me for calling you a peasant. We are on the second Brian Sewell DVD now.

    Forgiven you Brian? - oh. My mummy and daddy taught me that revenge is a dish best served cold. They were often right (but more often wrong, now I come to consider, LOL)

    Ahhh now then now then, of course I had momentarily forgotten that we are talking about 'proper bike' racing, so I must apologise.

    We wandered into an empty cafe one day in Anaxos (it's in Lesvos and before you say anything, Sappho wasn't one of what you thought LOL) (possibly bi, but anyway jumped off a cliff after being spurned by a young male lover, so exactly why she became a female Gay Icon nobody can work out!) ordered a coffee and enquired politely whether they could possibly get the whatever GP it happened to be that Sunday on Europsort on their wide-screen, which they did.

    a) within 10 minutes the cafe was bursting at the seams and b) the elderly papa of the proprietor very nearly wore his worry-beads out, he was that excited and c) excellent result, Lal La La song duly played at conclusion. Oh and c) everyone was gasping for a drink by that time as he didn't serve anyone hardly anybody (except the little kids to stop em talking and get em out pdq) in the meantime LOL

    Later there was a sign outside the premises on the road saying 'Highlights of whatever Moto GP showing at X o'clock' - we never saw it, place was heaving!!!

    Mr IPS, I must be a grumpy old git, too, as I agree with all of your comments (though my missus likes a bit of telly if we're away for any length of time. What she sees in Eastenders I totally fail to comprehend!)
