    They are for dogs that want to do stuff on the move, I am too busy doing dog stuff when I am on the move to have time for staring at a screen.
    Dad gives me access to his machine in the mornings so that I can chat on here, order things from ebay and email my pals and girlfriends, it's just that I need to wait for him to switch it on.

    My farmer doesn't know exactly what's happened Fruitcake.
    He does however wish you the best as do all of us in the coop.

    If you need help with 'wurds', me and dog might be able to help.
    "Woof" and "cork-a-doodly-doo" spring immediately to mind.

    WOAH I was asking about your health
    Does this then mean your Uncle has died??

    It was R Mar who died whilst my Uncle/Fil was in hospital, so I have a funeral to organise. Although Uncle/FiL is now home, he isn't going to be well enough to see his sister off on her final journey.

    The order of service, music, and my eulogy are done: now I need to start the probate process.

    Hi Fruity and all!

    Sorry about your dad Duncan.
    I get the trots sometimes (diverticulitis), and when it happens, boy does it happen!

    Give him my best wishes for a speedy recovery .....

    His problem now is blockages, he now can't eat anything in the day until he has been to the toilet and is sure that there is space for something to go down

    Enough about him, I am having a great morning so far I have found 2 footballs and 3 tennis balls

    Good morning all and one. Well done on finding more balls Duncan.

    I've been out abusing my hands in the workshop. I've just come in to take my arthritis pain meds so hopefully I should be able to continue after luncheon.
    Sausages, mmmmmmmmmmmm.

    I hope is well with the rest of the Armsters.

    I'm hoping to go on a steam footplate experience next munf with a friend who is a qualified driver. If I'm lucky I might be able to drive it for a bit myself. Woo-hoo!

    'Twas the Flying Scotsperson. I once stood on its footplate when it was in Doncaster sheds for a refurb. I drove a Brush Type 2 diesel electric engine up and down the same sheds on a school trip when I was seventeen.

    I was a bit non-plused by the whole thing, the cows in the next field were scary and that took most of my attention.
