A probation officer said the old lady had as many shoplifting convictions as a teenage heroin addict


How shocking, when her home town is generally so law-abiding and has such an exceptionally intelligent and indeed quite charming population. Wink

She may be a shoplifter but I bet she's not a pedant. Smile

She doesn't sound a full shillin' to me. Sad

I don't know her but I wouldn't stone her in the street. We Crewe people're compassionate like that.

Also, I bet she'd rob me some nice steak if I asked her politely. Laughing

I belong to the picture Library fotoLibra, although my recent activity with them has been very little, for various reasons. So imagine my surprise when I got an email from them today, saying they've sold the rights to one of my pictures!

I assumed the pic in question was one of my digital ones, which I've been taking since 2005, but when I checked it was a B&W pic that I took in 1958 on a Kodak Brownie 127!!! I was still at school then! Shocked

So thank you, young ryn, for taking care of me in my old age! Very Happy

Blimey! Have we found the missing evidence for British big cats?

Bit impractical though, I prefer the stuff I bought off of that rancher in Roswell, light, flexible, shows off my thunderbird photo nicely and it's easy to clean when the thylacines make a mess. Laughing

You've got a cat called Jeff! Laughing

That's always been on my top 3 boy cat names. Spelt differently, but still.....

1. Ken
2. Geoff
3. Steve

Our current cat residents are called Dex & Mixa. They were almost Bass & Treble or Woofer & Tweeter......

Sorry, DJ jokes. I'll get me coat.

EDIT: They are actually called Dex & Mixa.

You could get some good pictures with them if you knew what you were doing; which you obviously did. Just wondering though - do they know it's a B&W picture taken with real film or do they think it's a new image that you've skillfully photo shopped to look like an old image...?
