Buckshee = (a freebie, off the books)
The 7P's = Proper prep planning, prevents pish poor performance
Crabs = although correct by definition, it's not the case with this one
BAOR = British Army of the Rheine, but close enough
Egg Banjo = Runny egg on army bread, yolk squirts out & you end up strumming it off your kit
POETS spot on, but without the cursing
KFS again spot on, you're on the promotion board

Oh yes, I really love this one as I do have four ferrets that take up the space in the garage where really the car should be parked. Freya, Frigg, Frodo and Fritz are my pets, where as forty or so years ago the ferrets that I kept were trained for catching rabbits in order to feed my two oldest youngsters. I was asked not many years ago by some young (know it all), why I did not go to a supermarket to buy my rabbits, my answer that, come on son, which supermarket sells tinned English rabbits seemed to have fell on deaf ears.

You do know there are other letters & names available?

When I was working with the 1st Batt Yorks Regt, they had 2 frets as Regimental mascots & my mate was their keeper, they used to stay at his house & they'd drive our hound mental when we were down his visiting.
Sadly the hound & both frets are long gone.

I was only recently thinking the same, but not daring to ask.
Hope he is alright.

Monkey Hanger has not been on here since the beginning of April.
That is a worry.

I have sent him a PM…telling him he is missed and to drop a line just so that we know he is alright.

Re: Do You Have A Daily Ritual?

Regarding Monkey Hanger, Margaret has sent him two PMs and I have sent one. Neither of us has had a reply so it is indeed a concern. Let’s hope he is ok and it is just that he has decided to take a break from Accyweb.
