Re: PET'S CORNER

Misty was 15 years 3 months when she left us but the vets were happy to operate as they said she had the heart of a 7 year old. These two are lively but obedient. The lady who had them who is now too ill to cope with them brought them up and trained them well. We struggled a bit during the first nig...

Came over Blubberhouses on Friday. No sign of Boris O'Storiths or Beamsley Bob. Village rumour is that they have gone to Japan with Mrs Trellis to enjoy the Rugby World Cup. Come to think of it one of the Japanese players looked remarkably like Boris. Nolic

Re: GOOD TV

I've liked Line of Duty from the start but I found Sunday's episode difficult because of the frequent use of police acronyms....reminded me of my time in Ofsted. Just checked with Google and The Sun comes to the rescue. https://www.thesun.co.uk/tvandshowbiz/8767468/line-of-duty-acronyms-ocg-uco-itv-...

I read an article about Keith a few years ago. Despite his appearance he was a lovely guy. One of his elderly neighbours praised him for the support he gave to her and would not have a word said against him. RIP Keith. Nolic
