I found a short sleeved drill top in a charity shop. It's ideal for my walking and gardening adventures. I thought 8 Euros was a bit steep. I was called a tight wad and it's for a good cause: Ireland's National Sight Loss Agency.

The Kerry butcher omitted a vital apostrophe, writing dont instead of don't on his sign. Mind you, Kerrymen are famous for their thickness. They are the equivalent of Lancastrians in England.ReplyDelete
That means that Kerrymen and Lancastrians have a lot of get up and go and the the two most successful football teams (LiverpoolReplyDelete
and Manchester United)in England come from Lancashire YP. Even famous Yorkshire celebrities like Michael Parkinson and Sir Geoffrey Boycott support the famous Man U.

There's nothing wrong with some friendly banter across the Pennines YP.Delete
Tere should be a powerful electric fence with border control stations.Delete
There once was the Lancashire and Yorkshire railway company YP. They served Thwaites bitter and Hollands pies in the Lancashire carriages. I presume it would be Theakstons Old Peculiar and Tetley's tea in the Yorkshire carriages?Delete
Apologies for mis-spelling "There". Nice of you not to mock me over that!Delete
Not at all. I often make typing mistakes.Delete
YP, there probably was insufficient room on the chalkboard to accommodate an apostrophe.ReplyDelete
Apostrophes are massive things.Delete
