Re: Proving I'm me!

Maybe I should chop the cat into bits, then register the chipped bit as completely new cat.

Mrs Mick F wouldn't agree perhaps. :lol:

Re: Saddle height

Exactly.
Have a play with it, and see how you get on. You can always put it back where it was before and move it up and down.

Re: Decibels

We put a black plastic bin-bag out every Wednesday ........... or miss one if we don't have enough to fill one, and won't be putting one out tomorrow. Silent, except for the plastic. Cornwall Council have Weelie Bins, but not all addresses. The Wheelie Bin System needs a specific lorry to collect th...

Re: Proving I'm me!

Potato chips good! :D Chips injected under the skin work for animals. Pets are often chipped. We have three cats, one a stray, another a re-home, and one who's the apple of Mrs Mick F's eye ............ so he was chipped. If we had (as humans) the option of chipping, we could always be identified. V...

Cycled past a few houses over the years.
For instance, these two! :lol:

Hunters Ride
Smugglers Cottage

Do they really?
Hunters probably ride on their horses, but do smugglers actually cottage?

I was taking the joke a bit further, by re-translating it into Zulu.

Re: Porridge: love or hate?

Marmite. I'm one of those people who can take it or leave it, but not passionate one way or another. Marmite isn't a "marmite" thing with me. It's fine with a little bit of it on toast with beanz or eggs, or even to season and richen a stew or casserole, but I wouldn't rely or desire it. P...

Re: A quick suggestion

I have difficulty writing these days. My handwriting was never good, but as I've got older, it's not good at all, and as my eyes have got older too, it's got bigger as well. :lol: Typing, OTOH, is ok as the buttons are a nice size and the screen is big enough. I've always had good grammar and good s...

Re: Patch recommendation...

For me, it's to dry the excess glue and the dry the whole area generally. Leave it without chalk, it takes longer to dry. Talcum powder sounds a good idea, and it would smell nice too. The RN "Jack Speak" is foo-foo, or shortened to foofs. Here's one or two explanations for foo-foo. :oops:...

One of our cats has one, so why shouldn't I?

You never know, I could be found in a ditch somewhere having been there months, but at least they'd know who the body was.

Re: Patch recommendation...

I dust my patches, even when I leave the backing on. My judgement of the area to be covered with rubber solution is always very generous, so the patch and backing will not cover it all. Hi, Can you buy a chalk stick and grater separately? How you meant to do it? I use cheap talc at home but wonder ...
