Heather:
So how long will it take till I know if I'm gonna be an Aunt again, can I be Godmother this time, of course by proxy, Melody or Betty can stand in for me.
Tommy want's to know if your heat is steam heat, he was telling the plumber about your radiators and that towel bar in your upstairs bathroom.

August
Melody
laugh.gif August, I was reading that post of yours there, thinking that you were kidding Heather on about the menopause when you refer to her steam heat and then I read .........upstairs radiators, and I am in hysterics here! Jist shows the state of my head! You made my day August!!
Heather
Sis

The heating in our house is Gas Central Heating, except the towel rail in the bathroom is electric but hubby disconnected it as the bathroom was like a furnace.
We got a new gas system put in last year and the radiator in the bathroom is smaller so it is not as hot as it used to be. That is why we are having to redo the kitchen as the new Combi bolier is only half the size as the old one and we had a big space left on the wall and could not get the same doors, so we are getting new doors and worktops, hopefully before Christmas. unsure.gif

Not got the results of the Pregnancy tests yet, but I think it might be twins.
betty2
Twins that means baith melody an me baith get a wean tae haud, (but nae babysittin fur me) wid interfere wae ma social lfe. Noo carol singin thats right up me street cin we dress up

Singin songs for you all over yonder
Three pretty silver belles our voices will ring
And you all will hear us sing

HO HO HO betty22
Heather
Sis
It just dawned on me today about the other radiators we had.

They were also Gas Central Heating although the they did not look like the usual radiators. The front were beige panels with a grid on top that the heat came through. The good thing about them was that the panels did not get hot and were safe for children as they could not burn themselves if they touched them.

They are discontinued now and we could not get spare parts that is why we had to get a new system put in.

Betty
Have you heard from The Scarlet Pimpernel yet. (Marion) They seek her here, they seek her there, the glesga folk seek her everywhere. laugh.gif

Aw Betty, that is one of my favourite Christmas songs, Silver Bells.

Just dawned on me Betty, I am looking for a Plumber & Gas Fitter. Gorgi Registered. Your lad should know a few.
August26
Heather;
Tommy wanted to know if you had steam heat, I didn't notice when we were there, he was telling the plumber about your skinny radiators.

Melody: You are so funny, I also got a good chuckle reading your post. Melody still waiting for David to get you the Fire stuff, I didn't forget, I might have to boot him once, shake him up a little.

Betty: Yep, I can see the three of you Christmas Carolling, don't it do while Marion is there, she'll sing Crazy and wonder why your laughing at her.

We just got home from an overnight in Atlantic City, I was losing till I put $5.00 in a 50 Cent machine played three halves, bing bang three times triple red white and blue stars $460.00 felt good, then on a quarter machine hit triple triple cherry, 225 quarters, then I hit a few other good machines, shhhhhhh don't tell Tommy, I paid for breakfast and lunch, for three of us laugh.gif

I have a question.

I did not want to start a new topic for it, so will ask in here if that's ok Betty.

Ewan McGreggor was on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno and he told a joke. He said Americans would not get it and he was right.

Someone please explain this joke to me.

Two guys were walking down the street and they passed a bakery. One guy asked, "Is that a merange or a cake?" The other guy answers, "No, it's a cake."

I don't get it............. sad.gif
wee mags
is it a merague or a cake? translation "am I wrong or is that a cake?" biggrin.gif

Barbara:
Here I am your dumb friend.......................I don't get it either, yep we is the two, dummy and dopey, take your pick. laugh.gif

August
Barbara

anne
Hi to all, I thought the joke was Is that a cake or a merangue

Anne Perth Aussieland
August26
Honestly, I don't see the joke, I think all of you who have tried to explain it should join Barbara and me, "the dumby dopey clan" all are welcome, we do not dicriminate...............right Barbara biggrin.gif
Barbara
I DO finally get it!!!

But I told the joke backwards.

It was, "Is that a cake or a merague"? "No, it' a cake"

Anne, glad you spelled it out amarang, that helped alot.

Get it now, August? wink.gif (see Once Upon A Time)
Melody
Phew....thank goodness fur that laugh.gif

Marion & Betty:
Some people on this board are still gainfully employed, like me for instance, I was on here briefly at lunch, but very briefly, so you called my sister-in-law Rose and got the number, when is the big date....................poor Melody, I think they set this up deliberately they resent the gainfully employed like us, you do have to try and get to meet Marion.

August
