This week’s bit of fun:
This is an oldie and was sent by an Irish person in Ireland:
It's 2012 and it's the Olympics in East London . A Scotsman, an Englishman and an Irishman want to get in, but they haven't got tickets.
The Scotsman picks up a manhole cover, tucks it under his arm and walks to the gate. "McTavish, Scotland" he says, "Discus" and in he walks. The Englishman picks up a length of scaffolding and slings it over his shoulder. "Waddingon-Smythe, England" he says, "Pole vault" and in he walks. The Irishman looks around and picks up a roll of barbed wire and tucks it under his arm. "O'Malley, Ireland," he says, "Fencing".
Monday: We were back to the scout hut after a long break. This meeting turned into a good chat between members discussing various topics and ideas.
Chris Howard 2E0CTH showed us his new Fun Cube dongle which seem to work well.
Wednesday and Thursday: were spent recording the latest episode of the ICQPODCAST. This is episode number 85, not long before we make triple figures.
Saturday: was Colin’s and my birthday. It started with my son Lee and granddaughter visiting. Carole, Lee , Isabelle and I had breakfast in the local cafe. I spent the middle of the day in the local library before collecting Carole from work.
Carole and I made our way to Littlehampton which is on the south coast of England for the evening. On arrival we did some Geocaching before having a great curry. We got home around 23:00 local. All in all a great day.
Sunday: Colin released the latest episode of the ICQPODCAST.
