My wife's daughter's brother is friends with his cousin
I think my former housemate's uncle worked with the guy that lives next door to your wife's brother's gardener.
I know that guy
I once tossed a coin in his guitar case when he was busking in the Mall
Next door? Was that the one on the left or the right?
Actually my bosses gardener was the father of the former Relay for Life organiser - true story
Yes. He speaks of you often.
nice things I hope,next time you see him, can you please tell him I said "hi" for me & we should catch up for a sometime ?
I deleted this post as it was nowhere near as funny as I thought it was.

YKWG - Doing my good deed for the day yesterday
Only 12 days + 5.5 hrs school days for the year - less any strike action.
We can't wait for this year to be over and to be rid of the teacher Azzy has had!!!
I'll have to have a chat, this teacher sounds like a doozy.
YKWG: I have one official lesson left to teach, about 30 hours of work (before Monday!) and then I'm off to Japan....gulp!
Japan - the strangest place on the planet.
listening to your fav songs up loud and having no one around to complaing about it
Would love to have a chat to you about the whole situation - are you coming to our BBQ on Saturday after the pageant??
Unlikely, it may happen, but I'm not sure. Everything more than a day or so away is a 'maybe' at the moment, don't even know if we're going to make it to the pageant.
I've just worked out I'll be at work until at least 8pm tonight, possibly even a few hours longer...partly due to others' causing me hassles. *sigh* But I'm in the wrong thread for that
YKWG? The story about the origins of why we put angels on Christmas trees....
One particular Christmas not so very long ago, Santa was once again getting ready for his annual trip; but this year there were problems everywhere.
Fourteen of his elves got sick, and the on-call elves could not produce the toys as fast as the regular ones. The budget was much too tight to afford what the temp agencies would charge, so he had to pull one of his most experienced elves off the line to find, interview, and bring in more seasonal trainees, who were even slower than the on-call help. Santa was beginning to fall behind schedule.
Because production was down, the First Bank of the North Pole changed the terms on Santa's operating loan, which made him fall even further behind when the goblins running the mines started sending their raw materials COD. To raise enough capital to pay them and hire enough trainees to keep the toys flowing in time for Christmas, he took out a mortgage on his and Mrs. Claus' house -- and when the bank found out about that, they dropped his credit rating and raised the interest on his operating loan.
Mrs. Claus told him that her mother was coming to visit.
When Santa went to harness the reindeer, he found three of them were about to give birth and two had jumped the fence and were out, heaven knows where. He thought briefly about hiring polar bears, but they had already signed a Christmas contract with Coca Cola, and they didn't get along so well with the reindeer anyway. Then the rest of the reindeer found out how much the polar bears were making for a lot less work. In desperation Santa called over to Whoville to see if Max was free. Max yipped happily and agreed, since the Grinch wasn't needing him just then anyway. He was much too busy on the telephone, buying up all the Whoville mortgages at market-bottom prices and happily anticipating foreclosures.
When Santa began to load the sleigh, one of the boards cracked, spilling all the toys into the snow. All the electronic toys were ruined. He called the distributors, but every shipment before Christmas had already been pre-sold out. Finally he found a couple of Wii Fits for sale on Ebay, and after some intense bidding which maxed out his remaining credit card, he won. Then the standard shipping company said it did not deliver to his area, and when he finally found one that did, they said they could not promise delivery before Christmas.
Deep breath ... just take a break. Leaving everything just as it was for the moment, Santa went back into the house for a cup of coffee and a shot of whiskey. But when he opened the cupboard where he kept the liquor, he discovered nothing but an IOU note from the elves. Then the coffee pot slipped from his fingers, breaking into hundreds of little pieces all over the kitchen floor.
He went to get the broom. Mice had eaten the straw it was made from.
Just then, the doorbell rang. Santa opened the door, and there was a little angel with a great big smile and a great big Christmas tree. "Merry Christmas, Santa!" the little angel exclaimed. "Isn't it just a lovely day? I have a beautiful tree for you. Isn't it just a lovely tree? Where would you like me to stick it?"
