Like pick pockets, stale veggies from the neighbors garden, lie, cheat at every thing and other devious thing that you can think of?




How did you know that I did that. My next door neighbour is a self sufficiency nut. She always has a glut of things. She has lots of chickens, ducks, potatoes and greenhouses.
I never take mouldy veg. though, only the freshest for me. 

Thats shattered my illusions... i had you down as a Worzel Gummidge.

I seem to recall that the ships figurehead for this ship was a lady of the night doing very naughty things. Wurzel Gummage was a children's programme.

Because Beaver is shorter. hmm. 1,2,3,4,5,6...nope I was thinking about just writing "JimBob" but it wouldn't save anytime because Beaver and JimBob have the same amount of letters.

Interestingly, "beaver" is typed with the left hand, "jimbob" with the right (although b can be typed with either, I suppose).

My brother owned a Hilman Imp when he past his driving test. It broke down more times than I change my socks.
