PS you need to buy some more glasses. Sellotape is not a good look.

Que?????????? (is that the same connotation as exclamation points? :twisted: )

Sorry Dotsie it really wasn't me - :oops:
The farthest I've managed to get from the ole homestead since NY is Tesco's in Dunheved (Launceston) and that's still in Kernow last time I looked. :evil:

Remember I'm like you as well - I look nothing like my avatar with or without a rainbow or a flamethrower (those say sooooo much about my online personas but regrettably the pretty elfie ain't me - except for the eyes which are mine. Photoshop is just so funky! :lol: )

V. worrying this - perhaps I have a doppelganger? :P I have never to my certain knowledge set foot in any part of Manchester (although I may have been through there on a train or past the outskirts on a canal holiday but that was eons ago :lol: )

I have no recent photos but if she looked a bit like this...
Image
but with longer hair like this
Image
only darkish not blonde (or purple just now) and curlier and much, much older with hamster cheeks :lol:

or.... maybe I'm having some kind of extended psychotic episode and think I'm stranded in Cornwall but really I'm stranded in Manchester and not sharing a house with someone who goes into a decline when too much snow gums up the satellite dish for precisely two and half hours :roll: :evil:

Exactly like the top picture! I didn't really think it was you (that would have been wierd), but the likeness was uncanny. She did however have the arm of her specs sellotaped on, and I thought you were too classy for that so it gave her away as an imposter :wink:

But it's soooo Jack Duckworth to tape up your specs! :lol:

Like I said my hair's not purple just now and it's grown past me shoulderblades since that top pic was taken. :shock: :wink:

The other one used to be my railway season ticket shot but before I started wearing specs - gods I'm ancient! :oops: :lol:

Actually I thought I saw Sjoerd today in Manchester's Piccadilly Gardens. I think I've been wearing my hat too tight :oops:

Sorry Sjoerd I think you're being a little shy in coming forward with the truth and I don't think Dotsie had her hat on too tightly :lol:

I gave a street beggar a 50 pence coin in Piccadilly Gardens and in a very distinct Dutch accent he said ''Thank you Morty'' :roll:

Anything more to say Sjoerd............ :wink: :wink: :wink:

I knew it was him! Even though he kept insisting it wasn't, as I chased him all the way down Mosley Street :lol:

So that was you Dotsie......My God you can shift a bit, I thought you'd caught him at one stage but the banana skin on the pavement made you suddenly swerve and he got away from you.......Wonder why he's denying being in Manchester.....I have a feeling he may be on A Team business and perhaps we had better retract our accusations in case it compromises a major international incident.

Very crafty these A Team people you know.....My honest feelings.....He's trying to find me to claim his free drinks all night long......Time me thinks to do one of me famous disappearing acts.....And in a Poof of smoke he was gone :lol:

If it was Manchester, shouldn't that be the Ayup Team? :lol:

In 1972 a crap commando unit was sent to prison by Rochdale magistrates' court for a crime they (allegedly) didn't commit. These men eventually escaped from a low security open prison to the Greater Manchester underground.

Today, still wanted by the rozzers, they survive on social security. If you have a problem*, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, and you are really, really desperate and don't have much money, maybe you can hire the Ayup-Team. :P






*Although the Citizen's Advice Bureau would probably be more useful.

I didn't say the Ayup Team were from Manchester - just that they escaped to Manchester. :wink:
