Had a family reunion at the week-end, all the family down from all over the country - 14 of us sat down for dinner. Grandson is 6ft 7inches tall and weighs fifteen and a half stone. My two sons are over 6ft tall and I am 6ft 3inches but we were all looking up when we spoke to him. :o

Outside Bristol Zoo there is a carpark for 150 cars and 8 buses. For 25 years, it’s parking fees were managed by a very pleasant attendant. The fees were £1.40 for cars and £7 for buses.

Then, one day, after 25 solid years of never missing a day of work, he just didn’t show up; so the Zoo Management called the City Council and asked it to send them another parking agent.

The Council did some research and replied that the carpark was the Zoo’s own responsibility.

The Zoo advised the Council that the attendant was a City employee.

The City Council responded that the lot attendant had never been on the City payroll.

Meanwhile, sitting in his villa somewhere on the coast of Spain or France or Italy … is a man who’d apparently had a ticket machine installed completely on his own and then had simply begun to show up every day, commencing to collect and keep the parking fees, estimated at about £560 per day — for 25 years.

Assuming 7 days a week, this amounts to just over 5 million pounds … and no one even knows his name.

Haha.. brilliant!!

Think it was an April fool hoax a good few years back, believe I fell for it at the time.

Have had a foot injury since July and last week saw the orthopedic specialist.
This morning it's York hospital for an MRI scan then see him again next week to decide treatment if any.

Hope it works out for you SW. Will it effect your table tennis?

Can sympathise SW. My feet are in a mess after playing football till I was 40. Also, I haven't been able to cut my toe nails as I can't reach now. Got a pair of scissors with extended handles but they were no good. Her indoors can't help as she has arthritis in her hands. Someone told me about a Chiropodist training centre (only about half-a-mile from my front door!) I booked an appointment and went the other day. Absolutely brilliant. They have 10 bays and trainee's do the work with 4 or 5 qualified personnel continually checking. The girl who did mine was Hungarian and was in the final two weeks of her training. She was brilliant and sorted all my nails plus a corn on the sole of my foot. Came out walking on air! It is free too! Though I did make a generous donation.
To top off a good week, I went to the dentist yesterday for a check-up. Dentist said 'brilliant, nothing to do'.
