    At least everyone has an *R* in rain, Julie... Although not all have an *R* in drought. :P

    Being a bit of a thespian I have dabbled with many accents on stage over the years, Merkin, Southern and Bronx, Cockney, Yorkshire, Irish, Russian, French. Lots of fun and occasionally embarrassed the sons by breaking into one without thinking.:shamed: :bigsmile:

    If you have a musical ear it's embarrassingly easy to 'catch' an accent. I stayed with two New Zealanders for 5 days once and all my sentences? went up at the ends? end all my vowels? gat mexed ip?

    My grandad was a yorkshire man, he was in a nursing home (although Ok walking round etc). 5ft 3 with big ear lobes and really good head of white hair. Anyway my dad went to visit him one day, rang the door bell and one of the nurses opened the door and said "how did you get out". My dad made the mistake of tellings us and we've never let him forget it. Especially as his hair has gone really white now. We always say "your just like your dad" when he does things and he says "no I'm not, no I'm not whilst killing himself laughing.

    Talking of Gramps... he used to be quite high up in the General Electricians Union (or something similar) alwasy very good at arguing. Anyway he is most famous in the union circuit for rousing the Coventry Jaguar works to go out on strike. Unfortuantly he is remembered for giving his speach to a packed Apollo Theatre and in the midst of all the excitiment and shouts to go out on strike promptly walked straight off the front of the stage and fell into the orchestra pit. :-)

    Gramps waas a real old character bless him, before he went int he home he was in a warden cntrolled flat. Gary and I went and built him a floor to celing awrdrobe ( as he was only 5ft and a tiny bit he could only use the bottom half of it. He had a combined microwave oven and one Sunday lunch he nuked his chicken for an hour on a microwave settgin rathern than an oven setting.

    Oh that is funny at least it was done !!!!
    I used to have an old lady work for me she was almost deaf and suffered real bad from Tinnitus, she also couldn't see none to good. One day when I had a day off someone gave her a mince pie, she decided to heat it for her lunch put it in the microwave still in the foil dish sat down to have a peer at the paper. Goodness knows how long she put it in for, but the microwave set on fire and the fire brigade came out. They said to her you must have heard it popping and hissing her reply was oh I just thought it was my ears !!!

    About the lady and her deafness mistaking the alarm for her tinnituss..

    G'daughter left her mobile at my house and it was beeping at five minute intervals all night. I disconnected each of my phones in turn (I have many) but it continued. About six am I found her mobile on my ironing board but didn't know how to switch it off.

    At seven am my door bell went, I didn't hear it as I had switched brain off to bell sounds...
    It was a rearranged delivery parcel. I heard the knock on the door and then the letter box click shut....
    Managed to catch the attention of the driver by lifting up the venetion blind to realise I was naked and teethless from being in the middle of my ablutions.

    I was wandering about the supermarket wondering what a faint bleeping sound was. As there had been terrorists in London at that time, I was vaguely twitchy about bombs, etc., but before I could alert staff to my concerns, fortunately realised my digital metronome had come on in my handbag...

    I agree Ollie Mincemeat lasts for years. When the supermarkets sell it cheaper because of the sell by dates I have a field day and stock right up. I do make them through out the year I must admit so make my own mincemeat just for the Christmas period.

    Occasionally but we generally have what you would call mild winters here. Overnight can be 4 or 5 at coldest with an average max of 12 to 18 in winter days. It does not snow where we live but further inland usually get 1 or 2 falls a year.

    It took me months to visit this discussion because of the title 'Look But Don't Leave'.

    I assumed it was about something so horrendously distressing that it was likely to make me decide that Hencam isn't a very nice place after all and leave forever.

    It's just made me hungry for mince pies.

    ‘He thinks he is human and chases our dogs around the garden, pecking them.

    ‘Now he is a murderer.’
