The baby snakes are just as deadly. They all make me cringe. But yes, an unsuspecting child would want to pet it. Especially if it is in your lunchbox!

Still a week to go until our next adventure, but hubby announced, quite out of the blue this morning, that he intended to pack a jacket for our trip. I replied that I was astounded he had thought about things this far in advance, but that it was a good thing he was getting prepared ( given his track record for forgetting things).
"Oh" he said " I didn't say I had actually packed a jacket, I've just thought about packing a jacket. So you will have to remind me that I've decided to pack a jacket...just before we leave."

It's a good job he has a partner who understands him......
His brain is evidently fully occupied doing 'man things'.

I've got to admit that I, too, use my wife as an aide memoire. `Remind me to...' is a common phrase. But when it comes to packing I'm OCD. I have a printed list which is updated when required and is consulted throughout the day before we leave. But I still manage to forget things... :smile:

I once saw a man get off a long haul flight carrying a sleeping bag and a book and thought "Well he's certainly cracked the art of packing!".

We washed and polished the chariot today, and buffed all the bumper bars and trims. It is already spotless inside, but we like to drive off looking ship-shape. Tyre pressures/fuel/water tank all checked. I shall make the beds up tomorrow... But won't pack everything else until Friday. We are required to vote on Saturday ( it's compulsory) so will hit the highway straight afterward.

I'm with Ian, let's have compulsory voting in Britain. I doubt it will happen, though. There are strong vested interests in allowing a large segment of the population to not use their vote.

Funny that it was Maz who introduced politics to this topic. Go steady lads!
I too agree with Ian......
