That is very good, some really clever ones. Hard to choose a favourite. Thank you very much for sharing.

I got to thinking, most counties have rural hill billy parts. There are quite a lot in East Anglia.

I once lived next to a couple, who had married after "walking out" for 26 years. The man had never been out of Norfolk,

Never really understood that term AS? I guess it's a leftover from the days when young "ladies" had to have an escort when they went walking with a beau! How about "spooning", what's that all about?? I know one meaning (lol) but can't Imagine that it meant that years ago? :-D

Good evening Nikkers, couldn't help but "thank you" very clever, how on earth do you find them. Hope your week goes well. Regards, Bulpit

Hoping the same for you too.

I have lots of them, but many have pic's with them and I can seldom write a post where it allows me to put a picture in. This site seems quite temperamental at times, don't know why? Other times it's fine - very odd! Glad you liked them. XX
