    My niece emailed it to me a while ago, and I have it on the desktop thingy too; all cat people think it's amazingly - some would say frighteningly - well observed. I just gave a silent prayer of thanks that we British play rounders with a small bat, and that Tuppence doesn't know where our rounders bat is.
    Probably...

    Yes, my son insists that I gave birth in the wrong country and he should be Canadian really. The funny thing is my husband played when we met and until I gave birth to the eldest, but he couldn't carry on after that - too expensive. Then my youngest when he was 10 suddenly announced he wanted to play. As he was notorious for starting things and getting bored in no time at all we put off letting him start, but he persisted (as kids do) and had passed all the skating grades in 5 weeks (yes, we made him learn properly and have lessons with a figure skating coach - they teach them how to use edges, turn etc) and he was a natural. If he had been born in Canada/America he might be a famous NHL player earning a fortune - but that's his "alternate" life! (He can do a good American accent at least!!)

    Blimey, I didn't know there were grades in skating, like in music and dance...makes sense, I suppose! Being a lifelong avoider of sports, one tends to find these things pass one by...I spent games lessons in Matron's Room, doing my homework owing to having lungs like 2 old paper bags, and until the doc wrote me that precious piece of paper, spent hockey lessons standing on left wing digging a hole with my stick and running away (trotting) from the ball. Cross country was ambling round noting flowers and birds, athletics was laughable but I quite liked the bits where one threw things. Following a near miss with a javelin, I daresay the teacher was glad when I gave up games too.
    Perhaps your boy could go to college abroad to do games? I've seen it on American films...! And what's more, his team will ALWAYS win. In the last minute. With a goal scored by HIM. When they didn't even think he would be able to play owing to last minute crisis involving saving a kitten/puppy/sprog from drowning/fire/being run over OR the Other Side somehow manoeuvring him out of the game...

    I always claim that his skating prowess was down to me skating when I was preggo with him - only a couple of laps once I knew he was 'there', but if a baby can become a budding Beethoven by listening to classical music in the womb, or the next Dickens by being read classic literature, then I'm sure it must've been down to me!

    I think your final summary was correct CC - we're just waiting for the rich American team owner to happen to wander into the rink in sleepy Solihull when Danny's playing a game and to whisk him away on that scholarship because he's never seen such untapped talent. Perhaps today will be the day...

    Billie looks like Gingerbits! Wazza; coffee can be a choice of coffeebags, real coffee festered in a pot thing (but I tut and sigh a lot) or good instant. Up to you! Late afternoons would be favourite, but like you, every day is different. Got a lot of gigs on in the evenings at the mo, but you can but ring to make an appointment; my beautiful secretary Eric will always take a message!

    Your neighbours need to get themselves a hobby!!!!

    (I assume the school is your neighbour - do you go out and abuse the kids at lunchtime and tell them to keep the noise down?!!)

    No, the kids are pretty good really. And you don't buy a house in the middle of a school then complain about the brats, do you? Bit like those idiots who buy houses in the country and complain when cockerels crow. The brats are also a rich source of foot/rugby/tennis balls for my friends' dogs; since we babysat for mum's dog who intercepted a football and chewed a hole in it before I could throw it back, the kids (who know we don't have a dog) are too frit to come and get any balls back, and I have a reputation as the mad ole bat who bites holes in footballs...

    A developer built houses around the pitch where my eldest son used to play football (until he was 16), and there was an old guy who used to refuse to throw the match balls back because he didn't want them in his garden. Could he not see the pitch when he bought the house?

    There is also a 'secure unit' by the same houses, and about 18 months after people moved in they started campaigning to get it closed down. No one wants mad murderers and paedo's by them, but did they not wonder what was in the building with the sign that says "secure unit" outside of it when they came to view the houses?! Bloomin' NIMBY's.

    I'll never forget the look on the face of a friend who lives over in the wealthy part of Solihull (I'm the poor side!) when he found out a house that was having a massive extension on it (that he was very envious of) was going to be a kids home for troubled teenagers. He was most perturbed about how it would affect his house prices etc., and said that sort of thing should be put in OUR area as that's where the bad kids come from!!!!!! You see, kids from well to do families are never abused/do drugs/steal things/become orphans are they.

    Kids from well to do families have the money for the drugs and because parents are busy getting the money for them to BE well off, they don't have the time to give to the kids, who turn to drugs....etc, etc...
    I had a Revenge Kit before the days of computers, preprinted official letters which you could send, advising the victim of the proposed opening of a bail hostel/leper colony/zoo next door. Also notes for the milkman asking for 57 extra pints and a yoghourt, please. Wicked, but fun...

    Per head of population we have more druggies in the "rich" part than the "poor", yet the drop in centres are all in the "poor" section. Don't want the poor people finding their way over the "other side" - they might steal something!
    Ah, computers have taken the anonymous fun out of revenge!
