    Excellent Cliff! Brightened up my first day back at work. Being self employed I can empathise with you on this, but with me it's usually barbel:

    "Yes dear. I've just left the client and I'm walking back to the car...."

    Screeeech!

    Great article Cliff. But I think I'd rather be unemployed and go fishing than have a job trying to control those little sodz. Mind you, I'd be interested if they let me use the CANE and the SLIPPER still

    Congratulations Cliff, Glad to hear you got the job and have a boss who seem thoroughly decent and understanding....... only thing is if you pull a sickie, chances are you'll meet him on the bank

To this day it has to wait for a nice breezy morning to hang out its washing, hour after arm-aching hour perched like some shameless avian flasher. "

    Geoff: believe me, that's a book in itself, and I suspect it may be written one day. Indeed, I think it MUST be written - the public don't know the half of it.

    Now, now, Geoff. I thought you'd had therapy for that behaviour!



    Brilliant Cliff, it was an absolute pleasure putting it up for you. (Don't put any other meaning to that, please.)

    Geoff: If I can fathom how to 'compress' I'll put up a few cartoons that'll REALLY appeal to you....give me a little time.

    Excellent Cliff. All character forming stuff! Those classes are a bit smaller than the ones I remember though.
    What I can never work out is, how come, when the 'powers' are all so fired up about 'diversity' etc, that all kids are considered identical, and must be treated identically? Some kids never need more than telling once, whilst others (like me as a youngster) do sometimes need a point reinforcing occasionally
    And if we HAVE totally renounced violence, how come we still have a military out there? Yes Minister, it's for times when mere words are not quite enough. Sauce for the goose perhaps?
