It wasn't the answer

I've looked for it everywhere and it aint gonna jump up and hit me in the face - so which one of you lot has got my sanity? smiley -

Still, at least I'm not as sad as the boring old twit who spent half an hour the other day telling anyone who would listen how he had a wonderful day at Portman Park racetrack when he was on holiday in Florida last year.

Tried to tell him. It's a cartoon I said. It's makebelieve. It's all madeup names to fit computer generated odds and the comentator has a list of names and colours and there's no form up because there's NO JOCKEYS and NO TRAINERS and NO PRIZEMONEY and NO TOTE RETURNS because it's virtual racing.

And then he looked me square in the face and asked me if I thought he was stupid or something. What, he wanted to know would they make up graphics for when they used to have this game with balls called hattrick and they could have stuck with that if they wanted something makebelieve. So now he's organising a coach trip ...... smiley - just to prove me wrong.

There's nowt so daft as folk you know. Like the lady who thought the computer in the betting shop was really clever being able to read all the bad handwriting. I was tempted to wear a badge with Hex on it the next day ....

I might add to this later, but that sums up my life beautifully.smiley - weird

and now someone thinks my name is cool .......smiley - cool

Oh and for those who haven't got one of their own - I have a life and it is alive and well and living in Tunbridge Wells. (This is a LIE)

NEIL this one's just for you! - what's the difference between a man and a brussels sprout? One is green and smells horrible and the other is a very nutritious veggie. smiley - ...
