Some enchanted evening you may see a strangler, you may see a strangler across a crowded garotte. And somehow you noose was tied to the gallow tree on a rainy afternoon in Lerwick. Strong winds had been forecast for Gale but she left the room under a cloud of squid ink (may contain nuts). some mint ...

Re: Cleaning dog pooh off tyres

What on earth do people feed to cats these days? The stink is vomit-inducing. I'm wondering whether some sort of cat-B.S.E. will emerge in due course. PS. I have about £200-worth of cat-discouragement-devices around the garden of my house. Aye but not half as bad as Fox, now that does pen and ink :...
