That's OK then, Ayrshire roll is OK. :ok:

If you need to look at a map of the underground you will find one at an underground station

In April they found a stray tortoise near the tracks close to North Ealing Tube station on the Piccadilly line of the London underground. It was a 51-year-old female called Tommy.

Rugz 5th Jun 2003 23:58

Er...if it was stray how did they know it was 51, or female or called Tommy???

:suspect: Yet another conspiracy :suspect:

They're everywhere I tell ya
