That Sort of Day

It's going to be one of those days.

First I carefully put the used table napkins back in the drawer and carried the napkin rings through to the washing machine.

Then I plunged my hand into a bowl of washing up which contained a very sharp knife which I myself had put there, contrary to every instruction which I, a retired Health & Safety Officer you will recall, had ever given, with predictable results of course.

I'm now going back to bed!

If we're on the subject of cautionary tales, here's a tip:

Never stand your coffee cup near the paint tin into which you are regularly dipping your brush.

who got into his friend's hand-built Morgan sports car on the day after it was delivered, and reversed it into a driveway light as I tried a three-point turn.

Wrecked the light, did several hundred pounds worth of damage to the Morgan's rear wheel arch, and put a distinct chill on that evening's dinner party at his house.

You damaged a Morgan?

A Morgan?

All else pales into insignificance!

It was repaired by Morgan, and there was no trace of the damage. Remarkably, I was allowed to drive it again, on several occasions, and on one trip I skidded as I stopped rather quickly at a traffic light in the rain. The owner was in the passenger seat, and seemed totally unconcerned.

The fun's over now - he moved abroad,and the car was sold.

I was lucky enough to have a passenger only trip in an AC Cobra and the owner said he thought it needed a bigger turbo until he spun off the road when he floored the gas pedal from a standing start.

My soon to be father-in-law kindly let me use his Morgan as a wedding car.

Due to the wooden chassis impacting on the amount the front wheels will move they have the turning circle of a battleship.

After about the 841 leg of my three point turn outside the registry office I admitted defeat and let my now father-in-law get the car out of the car park.

Unfortunately the cooked clutch meant I never got behind the wheel of that lovely car again...

I take it you'll be going jogging with a pair of scissors tomorrow...
