OMG!  He's back. I thought you had corroded away. 

No you can't have the bloomin Macduck with or without a MacCurry. I might have a half eaten double whopper from a week ago...in its original packaging ....that I could donate but the problem is we are not there. 

If you go back up the thread you will see that Auntie Waitrose has organized this auction when we were away. After last years debacle of bidding from Singapore, we decided this year to go in August so we would be around at the crucial moment in the 2019 auction...and then she goes and organizes the auction in August. We are currently sitting in the warm sunshine in Tagatay somewhere east of Singapore drinking a cool tiger beer. No chance of bidding here. Maybe I could find a poxy voter.

Dont you lot think you're in the clear though. Our youngest sprog has commandeered the bote for a few weeks so don't come complaining to me if you get broadsided by Kharis this weekend on the north/south Oxford. It wasn't me.

Back to my tiger.

Back to my tiger.

We passed K. Harris yesterday morning. I got some blank looks when shouting"Dr Bob, Dr Bob, show us ya duck". You looked a lot younger than I expected. The captain was mumbling something about lithium batteries, and how to fix them.

 

Enjoy your tiger curry. 

 

Time for bed........ Boing

Wot! Let sprog 3 have access to the lithium's? No chance. Disconnected. For the duration.

He was also on the look out for some blue touch-up paint, well, actually, he was after 5 litres.Summit about the canals being very narrow and the trees kept jumping out.

 

He did say it was all good fun though. He particularly liked the hurdles every few miles, and wondered if bits were sposed to keep falling off them.

 

Oh, he also said to say sorry about your 4g antenna, and was a little surprised that they don't make floating ones.
