If you can manage to land a Scarebus, sewing on a shirt button should not be an insurmountable hurdle.

Analogy.

Ah well, where have they put the loos this time?

And both of aviation and maritime interest, as mentioned on our very own Wurzel TV last night, the worlds oldest aircraft carrier is being restored at Yeovilton:-

BBC - Fleet Air Arm Museum restores rare aircraft carrier

(Didn't notice this elsewhere but been away a few days).

Those Matelots at Yeovilton must be missing the PROPER
aircraft carriers already.

I think it smells of fresh paint in here.

Hmm - traditional title back, as requested by some. Although one of the ones asking for the traditional title two threads back, I was kind of getting used to the variations. Bit like struggling into an old shirt now ...

One must have been answering a call of nature when you opened the old hulk Mr Wholigan,it dont matter we oft had to close down one the 9990s and open the new one swiftly to keep the Russian Mafia out.
Been raining heavy here for a couple of hours but the sky is brightening now.
