    The Random Odd Thoughts Thread..aka ROTT 9th Oct 16 at 8:06 AM
    The random Odd Thoughts Thread is a thread for random odd thoughts.

    Eg........

    I think that the letter U should come after Q in the alphabet.

    It is joined at the hip to Q in words, so they must get traumatised by being split apart in the alphabet, a bit like swans wot mate for life.

    Cats leave their eyes in the road, so they can blindly go where no cat has gone before.

    Why do I think it's Sunday?

    Oh, and making sure your shoes fit.

    Having someone to comb your mane also helps.

    When I was 12, I had a pet stone.







    I think I've still got it somewhere.

    He used to love music too, his favourite song was 'Limestone Cowboy' by Glen campbell..

    This got me wondering whether anyone's ever been given a loo brush for Christmas.

    Never Pyxis..However your post did get me wondering if anyone has ever been given an 'Iron Rack' for Christmas.

    Reason being is I bought my Nan one in 1971 which she shoved away in a cupboard and never used..She broke my heart. It was a long time ago, I'm over it.

    My point is I have never seen an 'Iron Rack' since.
