Bob and Neil were playing as Celtic Horizon last Christmas day and the owner of hotel asked if they could play next Christmas day.Bob said "Sure.Is it ok to leave the gear here?"

When we were in Holland on our last trip we went for a meal at an exclusive seafood restaurant in Amsterdam.

There was a fish tank there with their delicacy which was squid.These rare wild squid were green in colour and had a strange black moustache on their upper lip.They looked weird but were absolutely delicious.We all ordered one and the head waiter called on Jervaise,the French chef to take them out of the tank,kill them and cook them for us. However Jervaise liked these squid and no matter how hard he tried he simply could not find it in his heart to kill these rare creatures.The head waiter then called on Hans, the German dish washer to do it but he simply could not do it either.The head waiter shook his head and said he could not believe that;

"Hans that do dishes could be as soft as Jervaise with wild green hairy lipped squid!!"

(apologies to Proctor and Gamble)

When Bob first left school he was an apprentice plumber.He worked in Oslo at a new retirement home for war blinded Norwegian servicemen.He was fitting the very last sink when he dropped his hammer and made a big hole in it.As there were no more sinks he took the implement used by bricklayers to carry bricks up ladders and fitted taps to it.After all, he thought;

"A hod's as good as a sink to a blind Norse."
