What's on your mind?
walkingdecay: Found one, and one not so ugly. It's done out in tartan, so it probably originally contained shortbread. Sept 21, 2019 10:14:15 GMT
martinrowe: Hold out for the two for one deal Sept 21, 2019 16:58:15 GMT
Mike Floorstand: I'd like to see a tartan skip. Sept 22, 2019 11:22:07 GMT
ocarolan: I've never seen tartan skipping either... Sept 22, 2019 13:19:07 GMT
martinrowe: Need some new glasses? Sept 22, 2019 15:12:58 GMT
Akquarius: what's a skip? Sept 22, 2019 19:33:03 GMT
Wild Violet: A skip is another word for a dumpster - a very large metal bin that are often behind businesses and can be raided for food or to find things to sell. Or so I hear... :innocent: Sept 23, 2019 7:36:20 GMT
walkingdecay: Good thinking about the two for one, Martin. I'd have the second one made up into a suit. I'd look slightly less awful than usual in a tartan suit, I reckon. Sept 23, 2019 11:11:07 GMT
ocarolan: ...and, you would be hard to spot when standing by piles of shortbread tins, Pete. Sept 23, 2019 11:18:18 GMT
martinrowe: :) :) Skips are hard to get rid of though - if you ever think of de-cluttering Sept 23, 2019 13:01:12 GMT *
walkingdecay: Yuk yuk! Sept 23, 2019 13:05:59 GMT
walkingdecay: The way to get rid of unwanted skips is to put them in a skip. Sept 24, 2019 13:27:19 GMT
martinrowe: :) Sept 24, 2019 14:44:07 GMT
walkingdecay: Have a great meet-up folks. Sept 24, 2019 16:12:20 GMT
Akquarius: thanks Pete :-) too bad you can't be there! Sept 24, 2019 18:51:16 GMT
Onechordtrick: All quiet from Halifax. Should somebody check that they’re OK? Sept 29, 2019 8:59:59 GMT
ocarolan: Most folk left now - just stragglers remain. Forum should get more news, pics, vids over the next few days/weeks. Was fab w/e, of course with friends old and new, lots of music, laughter, booze etc. A worthy 10th. Sept 29, 2019 12:30:08 GMT
stevie2sticks: Congratulations. My youngest, 2 and a bit has just done "twinkle twinkle little star" on his Kazoo working on "a train" on harmonica, I've ear marked him a guitar. I started training him Klingon but grandma intervened. Sept 29, 2019 16:49:24 GMT
Akquarius: To all of you who did not attend Halifax this year. You definitely missed a big thing! Oct 1, 2019 19:15:18 GMT
martinrowe: Perfect Pitch: Lobbing a banjo into a skip and completely covering the accordion. Oct 12, 2019 7:58:34 GMT
