Virgin Train......somewhere in the south ( edit)


Sums up the day nicely
I am on the train home, and nu has just sent me this photo from yesterday
I am trying to look busy as the woman behind me sounds like
She hires strippers for a living and is having a rather fruity conversation 
with one of her " girls" by the name of Lydia who has got herself lost on the way for an interview
At a hotel behind Tower Bridge!
The train guard is one of those that thinks he's hilarious
And keeps saying " Milk @ Beans" over the communication system
instead of "Milton Keynes "
What a wag

  5. Same here, John. I hear your pain. I do get the wider picture. Not that I see the photo.

    Travel in England best to be avoided. Unless you want to escape these shores. I shall do my best, this very minute, to keep many years' woes to myself. And don't talk to me about those creeking Greek ferries the English buy next to nothing. Thank whoever for the Euro Tunnel. At least you only have 35 minutes to drown.

    Other than that I love Richard Branson: I wouldn't marry him unless he asked me first but he does look good in a white dress.

  15. You know what they say a picture is worth ... yet most days you manage with very few words to paint us a vivid picture of your day. Now that is talent.

  19. Photo not there when I first read the post, but it was there when I went to comments…disappointed that it wasn't of the pea green kecks! How many had you had at that point? Good night out by the looks of it. X

  20. A tad tipsy by then, John? Or are you blaming the red face on sunshine?
    Glad you had a cracking day out - and I hope you didn't let the enigmatic Chris down.

  23. I can see the picture and Nuala's teeth are fabulous! (I always notice glowing white teeth before anything else!). Lydia's a lovely biblical name. Have a great weekend back on the ranch. x

  24. Drunken selfies should always be avoided.

  25. LOVE the picture. And eavesdropping. Which I do all the time.

  26. You look a little flushed, don't think that was your first round of cocktails!!! Looks like you are having a great time. Still waiting to see the pea green pants!

  27. The boon to signing on so late is that I get to see the photo right away. Wonderful, looks as if both of you are heartily enjoying yourselves.

  28. Love the picture.

  29. You look like you are having a jolly wheeze. Do I see happy pink cheeks?

  30. Always fun to eavesdrop a little :0 Looks/sounds like a lot of fun to me!

  31. Conversations overheard on trains can be very funny !

    ReplyDelete
  32. Have you ever imagined having a 'fake' and 'interesting' phone conversation on a train just to monitor fellow passengers reactions? (I remember a past post where you told us you liked to squeak all the dog toys in the shop so I thought this idea might appeal).

    Mine is that I'd like to get on the PA system at a supermarket and begin the announcement 'hello campers...' in my best Gladys Pugh voice.

  33. Got it.Looks like a fine time was had by all.The pants John we want to see the pants,Pretty Please?

  34. The local shopping centre has occasional bizarre attractions for the children, including a robotic dragon on wheels that talks (via remote control) to any child that approaches. Many's the time I've sat outside Costa watching it, fantasising about taking over the controls and make it bump into stuff, muttering in a Welsh accent, gently swearing too itself - too much Skull Attack"

    This might brighten your day too:

  35. I love snippets of overheard conversations. But I think with our raucous conversations sometimes other folk would be equally entertained by us (Me and Lovely Hubby that is ... not me and you .... although I bet we would be just as bad!!) :-)
