Would now be a good time...

To ask for a sub? I've spotted a rather nice boat that I'd like and with both of these prizes, you'd never even miss ?90K. You Tykes have the reputation of being extremely generous!

I'll pay you back when I get the money from my European Lottery win that I got mailed about before Christmas. It seems to be taking a couple of weeks for the prize to come through.

On the wedding? I forgot about that!

by neilb@uk In reply to I'd like to help out but

It'd take a half-dozen Nigerian 419 scam payouts so I withdraw my request. Spend your winnings on sun-tan lotion and I'll stick to rowing.

I read your post in Tig's thread and meant to reply earlier but and I was torn between a heartfelt "congrats" or a joking "about bloody time" - so have them both.

Marriage 101

by Tig2 In reply to I'd like to help out but

But I suspect, Tony, that you already knew that.

From now to forever she will tell you how you will spend money. That is, after all, what we are best at!

Warmest felicitations to you and your miss. You must remember to post pictures. I promise that I will post our engagement picture as well. It is most likely you will be married before me so please note down the best and the worst so I will know what to do and what to avoid.

From now on ?

by Tony Hopkinson In reply to Marriage 101

Am I due some back pay, twenty years would be a tidy sum.

Oh, the best bit is going to be me shedding tears in the registry office.

Me, an empty hip flask, and a really depressing bank statement sobbing in a corner.

If do post events of the day, don't expect a Mills & Boon type romance thing.

Not trying to put you off or anything, a young lass like yourself has much to look forward to, I'm just simplifying things for the lawyers and making my son wear a suit for once.

Based on past experience (not mine !), don't get really drunk and boff the wrong person.

Don't spend all your money on the biggest day of your life, the rest of them will add up to more.

If you're are in church, wrap up warm.

oh, Tony ......

I was really looking forward to the Mills and Boon bit, too....

You know - the Suave, Sophisticated, Romantic Knight In Shining Armour capturing the heart of his One True Love after a Lifetime of Stress and Strife had Kept Them Apart....


Sorry, Tony - I can hear you retching from here !!!

(Congrats anyway!)
