  1. There's one at Hemswell Antiques at £135. Can be seen on line. Too expensive?
  2. I think we're all sitting around waiting for someone to say something controversial.
  3. I only do ride-ons. I would be there solely in an advisory capacity.
  4. That's right, it was. Like I said I've never been. I have frequented a few dodgy clubs in Paris though but I didn't realise they were dens of iniquity until I was inside.
  5. Is not that I haven’t got anything to do Barrie. With a few acres of agricultural land and garden it’s a problem to keep up with everything. At the end of the day there’s no financial return in it for me and that has been my lifelong motivation. What a sad life I’ve lived.
  6. Amber Vandella? I think she was at the Wilford Crescent venue - not that I went!
  7. Even though I’ve been retired for many years I still miss not going to work everyday. I loved the stress and the hassle and the problem solving. I’ve got plenty to do round here but I can just please myself when I do it. There’s no real motivation other than the pursuit of happiness and I’m not very good at that!
  8. I bought an electric bike a few weeks ago but because of my arthritis I can't get on it. All those who have ridden it say how great it is. When I've plucked up the courage to get my hip done I shall try it out. I do have a static exercise bike which I can mount but more than five minutes pedalling becomes incredibly boring.
  9. Only one leg. Will he put it up straight?
  10. A friend of mine in the next village once told me that if he balanced on a chair on his landing he could see the chap across the way having ‘relations’ with the woman next door on the top of the deep freezer!
  11. Not a problem Trogg. The offer’s there if you need me. You have my sympathy. Phil
  12. If you're still having problems Trogg I can come over to help. I still cut a lot of grass and over the last 60 years have used many powered mowers.
  13. It looks like the speed is controlled by how far you push the bottom bar. Ease it back and it slows down.
  14. The specification of the mower says "adjustable speed". This is normally controlled from cross bars on the handle and not a throttle lever. I think something must be set up wrongly. I don't mean to be rude when I say "have you read the manual?"
  15. This type of fixed engine speed mower isn’t uncommon. Whilst most of my mowing is done with a lawn tractor I do have a walk behind Toro with a constant speed engine. It senses your walking speed and the traction speeds up and slows down accordingly. I think something must be at fault; you shouldn’t have to run behind a motor mower.
  16. I don't do the medication bit Margie. That's why they all love me!
  17. I was bitten by my mother's miniature poodle. I had to drive myself to casualty to have stitches put in. I much prefer cats. I've never been attacked by a cat!
  18. Do you know which song was on the flip side?
  19. Two weeks in Skeggy! Is it community service?
