Davy- my lady is the daughter of an English nurse, and a Sgt, Royal Artillery, granddaughter of a RSM. Born during the Blitz, christened in the bombed out remains of the cathedral.

While I was out on Temporary Duty, she was at the grocer, and was proudly wearing a miniature pin of my unit insignia. Snooty woman asked if I was a soldier, and when wife said yes, asked how it felt to be sleeping with a murderer.

A month later folks at the store told me about it. My gentle West Country lass caught her with a right cross that decked her.
Thats what i,m talking about

I had a co-worker from England once. She couldn’t say ‘Connecticut’ for nothing. It kept coming out ‘Connected Kit’.

Remember they drive on the left. It is a throw back when they rode horses and carried swords.
A gentleman always escorts a lady on his weak side to keep his weapon arm free.
And an Estate Car = Station Wagon
Lorry = Truck
Welly = Rubber Boot
and to be family friendly I'll leave you to guess what a wanker or a tosser is!

I'm assuming Tesco is the equivelant of our Wal-Mart.

I'll also boldly assume that Tesco doesn't sell ammo?
