Topic Winding Up the Owners Club By purple hat Date 17-10-2018 21:18
Sad day. A good run for a fabulous machine.  I miss mine terribly.  I had bought my Red Dragon in in my early fifties it was a little dream.  I will be 70 in March how time flies.  Nearly as young as Lawrie. ;)

Changing the subject, I have a Goons LP, THE LAST GOON SHOW OF ALL.  I had orderd a CD from Amazon and I received the album in the post.  Apparently a mis-posting of information.  A friend has managed to get me a CD of the show but I am stuck with the LP album.
This was the only place I could think of that would have members of a generation that would remember the daft humour of the Goons.  Anyone interested? :)

It seems the new committee set up is not to be sniffed at.  Take a look at their website and see how much there is going on.  I can just imagine Royal Wootton Bassett with hundreds of bikes passing through to honour the fallen.  :-)

Hi Pam,
The Bike Meet this year starts on Friday PM at the camping field, Beversbrook Farm. Tell your member to book the camping on the Calne Bike Meet website:  Have a look yourselves the festival is free with some excellent bands. Post the link onto the forum so all the members can see what has changed this year.

Topic Note on the fridge By purple hat Date 10-04-2013 18:35
Found on the Refrigerator One Morning :
My Dear Wife,
You will surely understand that I have certain needs that you, being 54
years old, can no longer satisfy. I am very happy with you and I value
you as a good wife. Therefore, after reading this letter, I hope that you
will not wrongly interpret the fact that I will be spending the evening
with my 18 year old secretary at the Comfort Inn Hotel. Please don't be
upset----I shall be home before midnight.
When the man came home late that night, he found the following letter on the
dining room table:
My Dear Husband,
I received your letter and thank you for your honesty
about my being 54 years old. I would like to take this opportunity to
remind you that you are also 54 years old. As you know, I am a math
teacher at our local college. I would like to inform you that while you
read this, I will be at the Hotel Fiesta with Michael, one of my
students, who is also the assistant tennis coach. He is young, virile,
and like your secretary, is 18 years old.
As a successful businessman who has an excellent knowledge of math, you
will understand that we are in the same situation, although with one small
difference - 18 goes into 54 a lot more times than 54 goes into 18.
Therefore, I will not be home until sometime tomorrow.
Topic The Restaurant By purple hat Date 04-04-2013 17:11
A lesson on how consultants can make a difference
in an organization. Very Impressive!

Last week, we took some friends to a new restaurant, 'Steve's Place,' and noticed that the waiter who took our order carried a spoon in his shirt pocket.

It seemed a little strange.When the busboy brought our water and utensils, I observed that he also had a spoon
in his shirt pocket. Then I looked around and saw that all the staff had spoons in their pockets. When the waiter came back to serve our soup I inquired, 'Why the spoon?'

'Well,' he explained, 'the restaurant's owner hired Andersen Consulting to revamp all of our processes.
After several months of analysis, they concluded that the spoon was the most frequently dropped utensil.
It represents a drop frequency of approximately three spoons per table per hour.

If our personnel are better prepared, we can reduce the number of trips back to the kitchen and save fifteen
man-hours per shift.'

As luck would have it, I dropped my spoon and he replaced it with his spare. 'I'll get another spoon next time I go to the kitchen instead of making an extra trip to get it right now.' I was impressed.

I also noticed that there was a string hanging out of the waiter's fly. Looking around, I saw that all of the waiters had the same string hanging from their flies. So, before he walked off, I asked the waiter, 'Excuse me, but can you tell me why you have that string right there?'

"Oh, certainly!' Then he lowered his voice.'Not everyone is so observant. That consulting firm I mentioned also learned that we can save time in the restroom. By tying this string to the tip of our you-know-what, we can pull it out without touching it and eliminate the need to wash our hands, shortening the time spent in the restroom by 76.39%. I asked quietly, 'After you get it out, how do you put it back?'

'Well,' he whispered, 'I don't know about the others, but I use the spoon.'

Topic Nag Nag Nag! By purple hat Date 21-03-2013 10:14
An attorney arrived home late, after a very tough
day trying to get a stay of execution. His last minute plea for clemency to the Governor had
failed and he was feeling worn out and depressed.

As soon as he walked through the door at home, his wife started on him
about, 'What time of night to be getting home is this? Where have you been?
Dinner is cold and I'm not reheating it'. And on and on and on.

Too shattered to play his usual role in this familiar  ritual, he poured
himself a shot of whiskey and headed off for a long hot soak in the
bathtub, pursued by the predictable sarcastic remarks as he dragged himself
up the stairs.

While he was in the bath, the phone rang. The wife answered and was told
that her husband's client, James Wright, had been granted a stay of
execution after all. Wright would not be hanged tonight.

Finally realizing what a terrible day he must have had, she decided to go
upstairs and give him the good news.
As she opened the bathroom door, she was greeted by the sight of her

husband, bent over naked, drying his legs and feet.
'They're not hanging Wright tonight,' she said.

He whirled around and screamed, ' FOR THE LOVE OF GOD WOMAN, DON'T YOU

A very tired nurse walks into a bank,
Totally exhausted after an 18-hour shift.
Preparing to write a cheque
She pulls a rectal thermometer out of her purse
And tries to write with it.
When she realizes her mistake,
She looks at the flabbergasted teller
And without missing a beat, she says:
'Well, that's great....that's just bloody great....

Topic Where can I shop now? By purple hat Date 21-03-2013 10:01
When I was ready to check out and pay for my groceries the cashier
said, "Strip down, facing me."

Making a mental note so I could complain to my local MP about this
running amok security crap, I did just as she had instructed.

After the shrieking and hysterical remarks finally subsided, I found
out that she was referring to how I should position my credit card.

Nonetheless, I've been asked to shop elsewhere in the future.

They need to make their instructions a little clearer for seniors.
Man I hate this getting older stuff.

Samsundar Balgobin, a Kenyan, was the clear winner.

COMPLETE and FINISHED. Please explain the difference between COMPLETE and
FINISHED in a way that is easy to understand.

Here is his astute answer: "When you marry the right woman, you are
COMPLETE. But, when you marry the wrong woman, you are FINISHED. And when
the right one catches you with the wrong one, you are COMPLETELY FINISHED!"

Topic Forgot my glasses By purple hat Date 16-03-2013 16:01
Yesterday my daughter again asked why I didn't do something useful with my time. Talking about my "doing something useful" seemed to be her favorite topic of conversation. She was "only thinking of me" and suggested I go down to the senior center and hang out with the guys. I did this and when I got home last night I decided to teach her a lesson about staying out of my business. I told her that I had joined a parachute club.

She said, "Are you nuts? You're almost 79 years old and you're going to start jumping out of airplanes?"  I proudly showed her that I even got a membership card.

She said to me, "Good grief, where are your glasses! This is a membership to a Prostitute Club, not a Parachute Club."

"I'm in trouble again, and I don't know what to do... I signed up for five jumps a week." I told her. She fainted.

Life as a senior citizen is not getting any easier but sometimes it can be fun.

Topic A must read - CRANKY OLD MAN By purple hat Date 20-02-2013 11:56
        When an old man died in the geriatric ward of a nursing home in an Australian country town, it was believed that he had nothing left of any value.

        Later, when the nurses were going through his meagre possessions, They found this poem. Its quality and content so impressed the staff that copies were made and distributed to every nurse in the hospital.

        One nurse took her copy to Melbourne . The old man's sole bequest to posterity has since appeared in the Christmas editions of magazines around the country and appearing in mags for Mental Health.
        A slide presentation has also been made based on his simple, but eloquent, poem.

        And this old man, with nothing left to give to the world, is now the author of this 'anonymous' poem winging across the Internet.

        Cranky Old Man

        What do you see nurses? . . .. . .What do you see?
        What are you thinking .. . when you're looking at me?
        A cranky old man, . . . . . .not very wise,
        Uncertain of habit .. . . . . . .. .. with faraway eyes?

        Who dribbles his food .. . .. . . and makes no reply.
        When you say in a loud voice . .'I do wish you'd try!'
        Who seems not to notice . . .the things that you do.
        And forever is losing . . . . .. .. . . A sock or shoe?

        Who, resisting or not . . . .. lets you do as you will,
        With bathing and feeding . . . .The long day to fill?
        Is that what you're thinking?. .Is that what you see?
        Then open your eyes, nurse're not looking at me.

        I'll tell you who I am . . . . . As I sit here so still,
        As I do at your bidding, .. . . . as I eat at your will.
        I'm a small child of Ten . .with a father and mother,
        Brothers and sisters .. . . ... . who love one another

        A young boy of Sixteen . . . . with wings on his feet
        Dreaming that soon now . . .. . . a lover he'll meet.
        A groom soon at Twenty . . . heart gives a leap.
        Remembering, the vows .. . ..that I promised to keep.

        At Twenty-Five, now . . . . .I have young of my own.
        Who need me to guide . . . And a secure happy home.
        A man of Thirty . . . . . . My young now grown fast,
        Bound to each other . . .. With ties that should last.

        At Forty, my young sons .. .have grown and are gone,
        But my woman is beside me . . to see I don't mourn.
        At Fifty, once more, .. ..Babies play 'round my knee,
        Again, we know children . . . . My loved one and me.

        Dark days are upon me . . . . My wife is now dead.
        I look at the future ... . . . . I shudder with dread.
        For my young are all rearing . . . young of their own.
        And I think of the years . . . And the love that I've known.

        I'm now an old man . . . . . . .. and nature is cruel.
        It's jest to make old age . . . . . . . look like a fool.
        The body, it crumbles .. . . grace and vigour, depart.
        There is now a stone .. . . where I once had a heart.

        But inside this old carcass . A young man still dwells,
        And now and again . . . . . my battered heart swells
        I remember the joys . . . . . . I remember the pain.
        And I'm loving and living . .. . . . . . life over again.

        I think of the years, all too few . . ... gone too fast.
        And accept the stark fact . . . that nothing can last.
        So open your eyes, people . . .. . . . . open and see.
        Not a cranky old man ..
        Look closer . . . . see . .. . . ..... . ME!!

        Remember this poem when you next meet an older person who you might brush aside without looking at the young soul within .... . . .
        we will all, one day, be there, too!

The best and most beautiful things of this world can't be seen or touched.
They must be felt by the heart.

Alaska... one in a billion photo
The photo was taken at the entrance to Katlian Bay at the end of the road in Sitka, Alaska.

The whale is coming up to scoop up a mouthful of herring (the small fish seen at the surface around the kayak).
The kayaker is a local Sitka Dentist.  He apparently didn't sustain any injuries from the terrifying experience.
The whale was just around the corner from the ferry terminal, and all the kayaker could think at that moment
in time was: "Paddle Man--really fast!"
The whale's mouth is fully open with the bottom half under the boat.
If the whale had closed his mouth before he furiously paddled away -
He might have been LUNCH!!!

OLD people have problems that you haven't
even considered yet!
An 85-year-old man was requested by his Doctor for a sperm count as part of his physical exam.
The doctor gave the man a jar and said, 'Take this jar home and bring back a semen sample tomorrow.'
The next day the 85-year-old man reappeared at the doctor's office and gave him the jar,which was as clean and empty as on the previous day.
The doctor asked what happened and the man explained, 'Well, doc, it's like this -- first I tried with my right hand, but nothing. Then I tried with my left hand, but still nothing.
'Then I asked my wife for help. She tried with her right hand, then with her left, still nothing. She tried with her mouth, first with the teeth in,
then with her teeth out, still nothing.
'We even called up Arleen, the lady next door and she tried too, first with both hands, then an armpit, and she even tried squeezin' it between her knees, but still nothing..'
The doctor was shocked!

'You asked your neighbour?'

The FBI had an opening for an assassin.

After all the background checks, interviews and testing were done, there were 3 finalists;

two men and a woman.

For the final test, the FBI agents took one of the men to a large metal door and handed him a gun.

'We must know that you will follow your instructions no matter what the circumstances.

Inside the room you will find your wife sitting in a chair . . . kill her!!'

The man said, 'You can't be serious. I could never shoot my wife.'

The agent said, 'Then you're not the right man for this job. Take your wife and go home.'

The second man was given the same instructions. He took the gun and went into the room. All was quiet for about 5 minutes.

The man came out with tears in his eyes, 'I tried, but I can't kill my wife..'

The agent said, 'You don't have what it takes. Take your wife and go home.'

Finally, it was the woman's turn. She was given the same instructions, to kill her husband.
She took the gun and went into the room. Shots were heard, one after another.
They heard screaming, crashing, banging on the walls.
After a few minutes, all was quiet. The door opened slowly and there stood the woman, wiping the sweat from her brow.

'This gun is loaded with blanks' she said.

'I had to beat him to death with the f # cking chair.'

Topic Seniors Banking By purple hat Date 08-02-2013 10:31
Shown below, is an actual letter that was sent to a bank by an 86 year old
The bank manager thought it amusing enough to have it published in the Times.

**Dear Sir:

I am writing to thank you for bouncing my cheque with which I endeavoured
to pay my plumber last month.
By my calculations, three nanoseconds must have elapsed between his
presenting the cheque and the arrival in my account of the funds needed to
honour it..

I refer, of course, to the automatic monthly deposit of my entire pension,
an arrangement which, I admit, has been in place for only eight years..

You are to be commended for seizing that brief window of opportunity, and
also for debiting my account £30 by way of penalty for the inconvenience
caused to your bank.

My thankfulness springs from the manner in which this incident has caused
me to rethink my errant financial ways. I noticed that whereas I personally
answer your telephone calls and letters, --- when I try to contact you, I
am confronted by the impersonal, overcharging, pre-recorded, faceless
entity which your bank has become.

From now on, I, like you, choose only to deal with a flesh-and-blood person.

My mortgage and loan repayments will therefore and hereafter no longer be
automatic, but will arrive at your bank, by cheque, addressed personally
and confidentially to an employee at your bank whom you must nominate.

Be aware that it is an OFFENSE under the Postal Act for any other person
to open such an envelope.

Please find attached an Application Contact which I require your chosen
employee to complete.

I am sorry it runs to eight pages, but in order that I know as much about
him or her as your bank knows about me, there is no alternative.

Please note that all copies of his or her medical history must be
countersigned by a Notary Public figure, and the mandatory details of
his/her financial situation (income, debts, assets and liabilities) must be
accompanied by documented proof.
In due course, at MY convenience, I will issue your employee with a PIN
number which he/she must quote in dealings with me.

I regret that it cannot be shorter than 28 digits but, again, I have
modelled it on the number of button presses required of me to access my
account balance on your phone bank service.

As they say, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

Let me level the playing field even further.

When you call me, press buttons as follows:


#1. To make an appointment to see me

#2. To query a missing payment.

#3. To transfer the call to my living room in case I am there.

#4 To transfer the call to my bedroom in case I am sleeping.

#5. To transfer the call to my toilet in case I am attending to nature.

#6. To transfer the call to my mobile phone if I am not at home.

#7. To leave a message on my computer, a password to access my computer is

Password will be communicated to you at a later date to that Authorized Contact mentioned earlier.

#8. To return to the main menu and to listen to options 1 to 9

#9. To make a general complaint or inquiry.

The contact will then be put on hold, pending the attention of my automated answering service.

While this may, on occasion, involve a lengthy wait, uplifting music will play for the duration of the call.

Regrettably, but again following your example, I must also levy an
establishment fee to cover the setting up of this new arrangement.

May I wish you a happy, if ever so slightly less prosperous New Year?

Your Humble Client

And remember:*  *Don't make old people mad. We don't like being old in the
first place, so it doesn't take much to piss us off.** *

I feel like my body has gotten totally out of shape,

I decided to take an aerobics class for seniors.
I bent, twisted, gyrated, jumped up and down, and perspired for an

Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
The good fortune to run into the ones I do,
and the eyesight to tell the difference..

Now, I think you're supposed to share this with 5 or 6, maybe 10

You're a sick senior citizen and the government says they are going to
sell your house to pay for your nursing care. So what do you do?

Our plan gives anyone 65 years or older a gun and 4 bullets. You are
allowed to shoot four Politicians.

Of course, this means you will be sent to prison..... where you will get
three meals a day, a roof over your head, central heating, air conditioning and
all the health care you need!

Need new teeth? No problem. Need glasses? That's great. Need a new hip,
knees, kidney, lungs or heart? They're all covered.

As an added bonus, your kids can come and visit you as often as they do

And who will be paying for all of this? It's the same government that just
told you that they cannot afford to pay for your nursing care.

And you can get rid of 4 useless politicians while you are at it.

Plus, because you are a prisoner you don't have to pay income tax.

Is this a great country or what?
Topic The Baptist Cowboy By purple hat Date 17-01-2013 19:59
A cowboy, who just moved to Wyoming from Texas , walks into a bar and orders three mugs of Bud. He sits in the back of the room, drinking a sip out of each one in turn. When he finishes them, he comes back to the bar and orders three more. The bartender approaches and tells the cowboy, "You know, a mug goes flat after I draw it. It would taste better if you bought one at a time." The cowboy replies, "Well, you see, I have two brothers. One is in Arizona , the other is in Colorado . When we all left our home in Texas , we promised that we'd drink this way to remember the days when we drank together. So I'm drinking one beer for each of my brothers and one for myself." The bartender admits that this is a nice custom, and leaves it there. The cowboy becomes a regular in the bar, and always drinks the same way. He orders three mugs and drinks them in turn. One day, he comes in and only orders two mugs. All the regulars take notice and fall silent. When he comes back to the bar for the second round, the bartender says, "I don't want to intrude on your grief, but I wanted to offer my condolences on your loss." The cowboy looks quite puzzled for a moment, then a light dawns in his eyes and he laughs. "Oh, no, everybody's just fine," he explains, "It's just that my wife and I joined the Baptist Church and I had to quit drinking." "Hasn't affected my brothers though."

Topic The Tax Man By purple hat Date 24-12-2012 00:34
The Tax Man

At the end of the tax year, the Inland Revenue office sent an inspector to audit the books of a local hospital.

While the agent was checking the books he turned to the Accountant of the Hospital and said, "I notice you buy a lot of bandages. What do you do with the end of the roll when there's too little left to be of any use?"

"Good question," noted the Accountant. "We save them up and send them back to the bandage company and every now and then they send us a free box of bandages."

"Oh," replied the auditor, somewhat disappointed that his unusual question had a practical answer.

But on he went, in his obnoxious way. "What about all these plaster purchases? What do you do with what's left over after setting a cast on a patient?"

"Ah, yes," replied the Hospital Accountant, realizing that the inspector was trying to trap him with an unanswerable question. "We save it and send it back to the manufacturer, and every now and then they send us a free package of plaster."

"I see," replied the auditor, thinking hard about how he could fluster the know-it-all Accountant.

"Well," he went on, "What do you do with all the leftover foreskins from the circumcisions you perform?"

"Here, too, we do not waste," answered the Accountant. "What we do is save all the little foreskins and send them to the Inland Revenue Office, and about once a year they send us a complete prick!"

Topic Driving after the Cristmas Party By purple hat Date 23-12-2012 23:56
With the Holidays upon us I would like to share a personal experience with my friends about drinking and driving. As you may know some of us have been known to have brushes with the authorities from time to time on the way home after a "social session" out with friends.
Well, two days ago I was out for an evening with friends and had several cocktails, followed by some rather nice red wine. Feeling jolly, I still had the sense to know that I may be slightly over the limit. That's when I did something that I've never done before -- I took a cab home.
Sure enough on the way home I ran into a police road block, but since it was a cab they waved it past. I arrived home safely without incident. This was a real surprise as I had never driven a cab before, I don't know where I got it and now that it's in my garage I don't know what to do with it

After a tiring day, a commuter settled down in her seat and closed her eyes.
As the train rolled out of the station, the guy sitting next to her pulled out his cell phone and started talking in a loud voice: "Hi sweetheart. It's Eric. I'm on the train".
"Yes, I know it's the six thirty and not the four thirty, but I had a long meeting".
"No, honey, not with that blonde from the accounts office. It was with the boss".
"No sweetheart, you're the only one in my life".
"Yes, I'm sure, cross my heart"
Fifteen minutes later, he was still talking loudly.
When the young woman sitting next to him had enough, she leaned over and said into the phone, "Eric, hang up the phone and come back to bed."
Eric doesn't use his cell phone in public any longer.

Subject: Yorkshire folk

Bill and his wife Blanche go to the Yorkshire Show every year,
And every year Bill would say,
" Blanche, I'd like to ride in that there 'elicopter "

Blanche always replied,
" I know Bill, but that 'elicopter ride is twenty quid,
And twenty quid is twenty quid! "

One year Bill and Blanche went to the fair, and Bill said,
" Blanche, I'm 75 years old. If I don't ride that there 'elicopter, I might
never get another chance "

To this, Blanche replied,

" Bill, that 'elicopter ride is twenty quid, and twenty quid is twenty quid "

The pilot overheard the couple and said,
" I'll make you a deal. I'll take the both of you for a ride.
If you can stay quiet for the entire ride and don't say a word I won't charge
you a penny!

But if you say one word it's twenty quid. "

Bill and Blanche agreed and up they went.

The pilot did all kinds of fancy manoeuvers, but not a word was heard.

He did his daredevil tricks over and over again,

But still not a word...

When they landed, the pilot turned to Bill and said,

" By golly, I did everything I could to get you to yell out, but you didn't,
I'm impressed! "

Bill replied,

" Well, to tell you t'truth I almost said summat when Blanche fell out,

2.   "It's lazy of the local shopkeepers to close in  the afternoons. I  often needed to buy things during 'siesta' time - this  should be  banned

3. "On my holiday to Goa in India , I was  disgusted to  find that almost every restaurant served curry.  I  don't like spicy food  at all."

5. A tourist at a  top African game lodge over looking a  water hole, who spotted a visibly  aroused elephant, complained that the  sight of this rampant beast ruined his  honeymoon by making him feel  "inadequate".

6. A woman threatened to  call police after claiming  that she'd been locked in by staff. When in fact,  she had mistaken the  "do not disturb" sign on the back of the door as a  warning to remain in  the room.

7. "The beach was too sandy."

8.  "We found the  sand was not like the sand in the brochure. Your brochure shows  the sand  as yellow but it was white."

9. A guest at a Novotel in   Australia complained his soup was  too thick and strong. He was inadvertently  slurping the gravy at the  time.

Concerned that he might elevate his blood pressure and heart rate from worrying about his testicles, she overcomes her embarrassment and pulls back the covers. She raises his gown, holds his manhood in one hand and his testicles in the other. She looks very closely and says, "There's nothing wrong with them, Sir. They look fine."

True to his word, he made the first contact:

"Yes, I've come back like we agreed."

"That's wonderful! What's it like?"

"Well, I get up in the morning, I have sex.

I have breakfast and then it's off to the golf course.

I have sex again, bathe in the warm sun and then have sex a couple of more times.

Then I have lunch (you'd be proud - lots of greens).

Another romp around the golf course, then I pretty much have sex the rest of the afternoon.

After supper, it's back to golf course again..

Then it's more sex until late at night.

I catch some much-needed sleep and then the next day it starts all over again"

"Oh, George...are you in Heaven?"
