Christmas


Engineers of all nations


My dear wife has interrupted my workshop time (damn cheek!)to tell
me that's there's some sort of celebration planned for tomorrow. She also
says I should wish all scroats, old and new, a merry Christmas and a
healthy and prosperous(ha!)new year. Can I get back to my work now dear?

Best regards to all. Bah humbug!

As a fully fleged scroat thank you and I wish you and all other
scroats the very best and many happy returns to the workshop

I am absolutely certain, beyond any shadow of doubt, and without needing
to see the evidence, that she did not under any circumstance use the
word 'scroat'. Far to well behaved.

=A0Good job your wife is on the ball Chris, I was beginning to wonder
why the place was full of kids who look vaguely familiar, plants as
tall as trees, strange food and boxes wrapped in funny paper. The
bl****y postman woke me up every morning for the last two weeks as
well.

Truth is I=92m still trying to recover ground from a =93witty remark=94 I
made last week. The cooker took real poorly and when buying a new one
the =93spotty faced youth=94 asked if we needed it to do anything in
particular; my instant riposte was to say =93yes I would like this one
to cook properly as the old one never did=94. A very quiet evening
followed the stinging sensation in my ear I got when I sat in the car,
apparently the wife said I told him she couldn=92t cook, I don=92t know I
get blamed for everything these days.

Well, I also hope you all have a very fine Christmas and don=92t worry I
don=92t think it lasts too long, no reason the lathe should be rusty
before you get back to it. Best wishes as well for a superb new year
in which all those projects get completed and every finishing cut is
=93bang on the nose=94. My goodness that is some fine mulled wine.

Best wishes to all (except that women down the road with the dogs that
wake me up every morning at 5:30 and that =93creature=94 my daughter
brought home once a couple of years ago). Hope you all have a really
good time.

Keith

That's no way to refer to a potential son-in-law...shame on you!
