    If it was attached to my motor home - Winnebago Aspect by a lead (electrical or leather you decide) then it might be more to do with motor homes ... but in a way it is and is not... but I want to get it over to as many motor homers as I can.

    The Saint Bernard (Ezzie - has a name) that is on the end of the lead walking beside me is not my spare battery. I have heard it hundreds of times. It does not have any brandy.. if she did I would have used it up by now drowning my sorrows from hearing the same old remarks. No she does not pull me along, Yes I do have batteries and no the dog is not the replacement or spare. No she does not pull the Winnebao along... she can pull 1000kgs - yes they were working dogs and the pack bags she has and light and carry her plastic bags for cleaning up anything she deposits.

    So when you see me about (next at Malvern then Bath and West) do say hello, talk about your motor home or mine.. always plenty to say about that, or chew the fat about having to get in to Colditz / Butlins with Warners new fences, but DO NOT tell me about the battery or the tow rope. (please nicely)

    Here is the deal Bob... I say none of the annoying things above to you if you avoid mentioning me "getting my oats" if I let slip I was brought up a Quaker... and you refrain from asking me to "make your wife/bills/weeds disappear" if I let slip I was once a professional magician and so and so and so...

    Deal?

    Come on Funsters... what are the comments that drive you mad (but being Funsters you smile softly) when you hear them?

    ...but you DO look wild :Eeek: :Laughing:

    The only thing that gets my goat is people thinking that shortening my name to 'Jan' is cool.

    No problem, if you can't manage to get your tongue round 'Janine', I quite like 'J9'.

    That then gets mutated to 'K9'....... grrrrrrrrrrrrr. :cry: :Laughing:

    Not to the stage of driving me mad, but give it time...and you probably need to see my van to appreciate these...

    1. "Did you convert it yourself?"
    Yes, of course I did. And then I stuck that "Danbury Motor Caravans" sticker on, that you can clearly see on the side facing you, just for fun...:Doh:

    2. "Hey....you've lost your caravan somewhere...ho..ho....ho" :Smile: (got that one first from a C&CC warden....thought it was pretty funny the first time)

    3. "So....is there a bed in there?"
    No...I sleep in the utility tent, or using a hammock that I suspend between the rear-view mirror and fridge...:Wink:

    Oh dear.

    You really haven't grasped the concept of FUN yet have you.

    You'll learn.

    If you got two St Bernards you wouldn't keep veering one way :RollEyes:

    When people find out we have spent the last 30 years in the wholesale nursery business they always have a sick plant they want an opinion on - hey I'm on holiday too. Always try to help and ask what plant it is and they never know what the plant is its always ' this high has green leaves flowers in the spring has little green fruits that ripe in the late summer etc etc. then they look at you totally dumbfounded when told there are millions of varieties just like that most do not even know if its a tree, a shrub herbacious, perenniel , annual etc. My pal who is a doctor suffers the same - as soon as he says he is a doctor most people start to pour out their aches and pains. Neither of us admit to being what we are ususally just for peace and quiet :Eeek:

    I ended up offering a prize if anyone could come up with a new joke when I was head of I.T at the Cambridge division of SSL ( better known as Schole or Marigold gloves, or even better known as Durex ! )
