Happy New Year, Max, and happy retirement!
Should you find fly fishing a bit frustrating, I know somewhere you can get some dynamite to lob in the water.

Slightly late sorry, but all the best to everyone! Now retired and also in my eighth decade I'm looking forward to learning new skills, fly fishing seems genteel enough for starters.  :-\

How about pole vaulting?

So that is what I am doing this winter - thinking of new places I could visit once the world is no longer frozen up.

How about Scotland for the annual meeting of the BPMWB (Beau-Peep-Mug-Wielding Brigade), which currently carry on the duties of the now defunct Darstardly Devilish Deep Dung Depositing Division? If you can bring your campervan with you, we could upgrade the meeting hall.

putting in on a raft?

Outpourings / Answering the Door
« Last post by Mince on January 06, 2020, 06:59:15 PM »
I have no idea why some people believe it's rude not to answer your own door. Okay, I do answer the door the TV Licensing goons, but only to slam it in their face. But for other people, I sometimes don't bother. After all, it's my house and I do not have to answer my front door. I don't need a reason.

So if - let's choose randomly - an elf collecting money comes to my house and rings my doorbell, I might not bother with the door. I might even walk past the window so the person can see that I am in. The person becomes annoyed or frustrated at this lapse in social etiquette: "Why didn't you open the door?" It's simple: it's for whatever reason I can be bothered to choose. Maybe I'm asleep. Maybe I'm taking a shower. Maybe I'm having a crap. Or maybe I'm blatantly and openly ignoring you as I walk past the window. Maybe on your bike. After all, it's my house. You took your shot to see if I'd answer and I didn't. Move on.

Thank you, Diane. I'm relieved to note that the 150' tall Fay Wray didn't appear to trouble you.

So you were lying about Gulliver's World.
