    I have a very good condition Stainless steel "Baby Burco" Hot water urn, about (I think) 20 litres.... it works of gas and is very clean with no lime scale..

    I have used it for rally`s I have run before and it is dead handy for coffee mornings and the like...

    My dilemma is..... a certain gentleman :RollEyes: wants it for his club as I am unlikely to use it much...

    He asked my age (Nearly 70) and has offered me a "Lifetime" membership of the club for it... I have given it a lot of thought and suggested Lifetime membership and £50... and I have said I would also throw in a few hundred polystyrene cups...

    Now my question to you learned gentlemen is...

    Do you think this is a fair offer.... ???????????????

    And would the cagey old bugger had offered me a life time membership if I had said I was 50 or even 60 years of age.... :Eek!: :Rofl1::Rofl1:

    By my reconning I could pop my clogs any time now, and the £50 would help Judy towards my funeral expenses... :Cool:

    So in theory it would be a cheap "Stainless Steel Baby Burco 20 litre tea urn"... :thumb::restmycase:

    It's worth an absolute fortune Mo, have you seen the price of brown shrimps!! I had one of those boilers a while ago and they were ideal for cooking shrimps in, get yer tights off, attach them to the prop and go and push them in the sea, a fortune to be made:Rofl1:
