    must have been love, my wife was only ever aboard my boat once, under sufferance, thought for a minute it might be your "neice" who was out with you some years later, i recall speaking to her on the VHF one day along the bennan, very amusing she was too, sweltered still has fond memories of your "fartmask" story, i could do with one of those, everyone bought me sugarfree sweets which i ate before reading that the polyols in the ingredients have a rather antisocial side effect, i can clear a room in seconds these last few days!!!

    this the 1 that likes her coffee tables  :smitten:
    Nope Rikki, ye'd need tae ask Syd or Maddog about her, ye got me? ovaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar. :smitten:
    I think I can safely say that is still one of the funniest things I've ever heard. The description of the fartmask was priceless.
    Would Ah get the jyle if Ah pit it in ma book Davi?

    as allan says its one of the funniest things i too have ever heard yet the weird thing is that if you asked me to repeat it or even a part of it i couldn't tell you a single thing, all i remember is the three of us sitting in the wheelhouse with tears running down our faces and with the cousin duggie once he started laughing i'd defy even a dead man to be able to resist joining in, for the rest of the day he'd start to spontaniously giggle and off we'd go again, no idea if we caught anything that day but i do remember the three of us roon the table laughing like drains and not a word passing between us, a day like that once a year should be made compulsory tho i did think i'd cracked a rib my side was that sore when i got home at night.
    Aye, that sorbitol in sugar free sweeties is a killer, wor lass is diabetic, although she claims, that as a lady, she doesn't fart, she waft's

    all smell the same to me
