“She gave me water...... I wanted Carlsberg!”

 

Went into Durham Cathedral and got my camera out. Sour faced lady came up and said, “No photos!”. Two minutes after a guy came up and offered to SELL me some. Apparently he was the cathedral’s “official” photographer!

It would have to be a big throw, as we are are about 50 miles (as the brick flies) SW of Norwich!

Margie, I could do it on my way on the 27th. Nip up from the A11.thumbsup

You could always give me the coordinates !

Where the  northbound A11 merges with the A14 at junction 36 would be  your nearest point, but even this is around 12 miles away as the brick flies!

Why are you into brick throwing anyway?   I thought you were a nice bloke!...

If you broke one of her windows she would probably give you a clout in the "coordinates

If you use two bricks Margie be careful where you place your thumbs

He leapt out at me from behind his hedge and said ' you're not a Christian, you're a sxxt! That's true Christianity for you!

 

I haev no time for such reigious wierdos, Phil. They preach one thing and practice another.

I agree, Compo... people should practise what they preach, as far as they are able.  Sadly, we all fall short of our own ideals sometimes, let alone God's!    But when we do fail, I hope we can recognise this, and not just forget it or cover it up.   Many mistakes can start to be put right with an honest apology, unless the person you have wronged has died, then you are left with some uncomfortable guilt...

 

..... but a so called Christian behaving in the manner that Phil describes is definitely not good!  Sounds like he was experiencing a Tourette's outburst!

We are five hours behind you BK.  Just finished lunch.  2:15 pm.  Lounging around reading NS.  Dogs sleeping.  We've just missed some dodgy weather.  possible tornado's were forecast.  According to the weather map it's now past us.  Just a bit of rain and wind.  I'm ok with that.
