I'm sure the Queen would have been amused, Brian - she has a good sense of humour!

The most amusing thing today by far is an unexpected federal tax refund for $1.36.

Luxury vacation here I come. :D

I had to laugh when I saw this in the news today. Obviously not a lot of stuffing between the council parish workers' ears!!! What were they thinking of when they were building the fence?

There are times when comment is superfluous and you can only shake your head with wonder.

I've just seen someone walking a goat! Makes a change from a dog, I suppose, although the phrase 'I'm going to see a man about a goat' doesn't have the same ring to it. LOL.

LOL SM & the "Creepy-Ass Dolls"...They reminded me of a few years ago when my neighbour was going away on 2 weeks holiday and she left her house key with me and asked me to go in and leave the lights on for a few hours eacn night so it looked like someone was home.

What I didn't expect was to see every room completely taken over by dolls :eek: some of which looked really creepy :eek: and as I switched on lights my friend asked me why I kept looking over my shoulder and my pat reply was.....

'I'm looking out for CHUCKY!!!' :eek: That cracked her up! :D ...I still remember those dolls one of which looked liked Bette Davis in 'Whatever happened to Baby Jane.' :eek: :D

Bec :)
