Don_ 1 is temporarily lost. He is working feverishly to find the next great location(s) for his Silver Award 2014!



With the dor set ajar, I turned my mind to matters placenamewise in Blighty. On my laptop I clicked the linc on East Anglia, but it gave me no insight to the area nor folk who live there.

Chest er minute. I thought, perhaps I should look to the west. That was a wales of an idea. My new port of call would be the western coast, where some towns are inland and some r set on the sea's edge. But I had better watch it or I may get muddled up and be gived a red card iff I make a mistake.

I shall do my best to avoid mention of Bristol Cities...... Oops!

The female arachnid thought she could hide from me, but I spied 'er. I yelled 'Run under the cupboard, or be trodden on.'

Ann (remember her?) was having difficulty with her scales, do, ray, me and so on were OK but she was unable to 'la'. I decided to help her, so now I train Ann to la.

Demo, your last post was a little unclear until I red back over it.


As Don_1 is an airplane pilot, he should know that too many spiders in his house can turn it into a no fly zone!

I did vow not to mention Bristol Cities (curses, done it again), Demo, however, made no such promise, as is clear in this post.

I see that magazine was priced at 6d, a better way to spend a couple of thrupenny bits, I can't imagin.

Now look what you've made me do. I've mentioned them again. Doubtless I will be attacked by my knockers for having such afront as to mention them again. It was only my dialect being as me Londoner.

DOH!!! I've boobed!

A complainer??? We always treated Mr. Damoan to the very best culinary offerings and treats that Punning Thread has to offer!

Sigh. I guess no matter how great the cuisine, some people just like to whine-and-dine!

Sounds like a most fulfilling job, if one has ability to handle the pressure. I would like to give it a try, I'm sure you'll be gland you were brave enough to give me a try.

I, for my part, know that my cup shall runneth over, if her's does. And, of course, it will be done in the breast possible taste.
