''yes lovely thanks turned me hearing aid off after half hour...........lol.

                          Several other events taking place,,one i'll mention in particular,local football match,,watched for about 20 minutes,seemed a good game apart from loads of bad language from players and spectators(kids were watching) anyway they all left earlier than i thought.....asked some of the players on leaving why?....ooh loads of trouble mate,, bloke with a knife,,...the Ref who ive known many years called me over and gave me the details......bloke sent off for 'head butting' an opponent pulled a knife on the sideline threatened others,, will be telling the company to ban them in future,,.........in all my years involved in local football never heard owt like it,,........anyway another interesting day in ''the life of Ben''..........hope i did'nt bore you.............

Went down the Social today..the Dole Office in old money.

Told them i am finishing all work and would like some money please !

Handed in a Doomsday Book of forms including all the Dead Sea Scrolls of my medical/ Doctor/ Hospital references to the fact that..'Not only should i not be working..i should be dead'..kind of medical evidence.

Perplexed midget behind the counter...who had in a previous life conned our local Credit Union out of thousands on a fake mortgage scam!

And now in Rudolph Hess mode at our friendly Social Welfare Office.

You don't wanna work then ian123 ?

No, thats right...body is shagged.

Umming and Arring...oh dear most irregular....you will have to sit before a Medical Panel..

Grand says i - because i'm not able to stand.

Propped up Eire and Uk long enough..and bailed out the banks...time to get some money back out the pot i helped to fill..i said.

Johnny Meanstester will come to your Gaff....bring him on i answered..and milk !!

Looking forward to the Welfare State minding me for a change.

She then showed me the scale of money i am entitled to...

Bleddy hell..why am i sludge bumping  for a few Euro more.

TV License, Reduced Phone, Free Travel.Free Healthcare, Student Grants, Fuel Allowance.

Got a dog..she quipped ..€20 extra if you have.

Walked out feeling sick..at what i have been paying for!

Now..where's Iceland ..me new plasma TV...and the Monday Club?

For a minute, I wondered why you were talking about $100 bill’s, (reading from the bottom up). You never can have enough though!

You know that feeling 'Lost a bob and found a tanner', well sometime last week on one of our towpath cycle rides my Rotary watch escaped my wrist undetected and now it's gone from me forever. I always take my jewellery off for our rides because sad to say sometimes we pass some scary people and you just never know. Occasionally I forget to remove my watch, and now it's removed forever. Sentimental value, we treated ourselves to matching ones when hubbs was made redundant. Only material things, but made me feel sad anyway.:sorry: BUT. The sun is shining and  you never know , I wont get my watch back, but  I might find a tanner, or the equivalent in  this funny money we have these days..:biggrin:

The very first gift Mrs C bought when we had just met 24 years ago was a Rotary gold watch which I don't always wear, only when I go out not around the house. i'm off out later & just put on my wrist when I read your post carni. you never know some kind sole may hand it in to the police & you get it back. Nowt wrong with a bit of sentiment. I hope so.

Thank you catfan. I haven't reported it because it could be one of at least three different routes covering about ten miles each, taking in three different canal routes and roads, not even sure which days we went on each route. Actually, you spured me on. I think I will make a few phone calls.:)
