Pub news.

Jez told me he had a mild rant at Di,our ever so lovely soaker landlady the other day, so I feel duty bound to pass on what already in the public domain.

socks,what socks!

You see,Jez has about twenty pairs of socks. So,not finding any pairs in the drawer, he went to the washing basket.

This is where the problem begins. Out of all the socks in the washing basket there was not one matching pair!

Where the other socks are remains to be seen, but Di is now officially banned from washing socks.

He'll do his own!

So, on the basis of this, I have come up with a new day of celebration in the pub!

This made me laugh especially as my grandson has just gone off in odd socks I can't remember the last time I saw him in matching ones.

I can't believe he blamed Di - I mean, really....everyone knows its the Sock Fairies that take them.

I’m sure your Di is extremely upset about this.

Tears will no doubt be shed because she is no longer allowed to wash some buggers socks.

Incidentally I have a sock fairy tale.

As you may remember I wash for a living [haha…not really funny] in a nursing home. It’s a laundry rule that no single socks leave the laundry. You can imagine we get quite a few single socks [bastard sock-fairy], they lay waiting to [hopefully] get matched up, in some cases they do, many don’t. I had to SillyBitch myself the other day when it hit me that old Ed would only have the one sock each day because just the other week he’d had his left leg removed due to sugar. He probably thought he’d hit the sock jackpot, he had about four days worth of sock returns.

hahaha, John! Hilarious! I think we all fall into the land of odd socks. I even wrote, Socko, a mini-script to commemorate the experience! Have a wonderful weekend, John! :))

Once upon a time my Dad complained about how his socks kept "disappearing in the system" so Mum took to counting each pair. After 50 years of marriage Mum still counts his socks into and out of the washing machine!

Cheers, Matey,

Perhaps he uses them as environmentally friendly condoms and then forgets which sheep he left them in??

I once knew a chap in advertising who liked to wear odd socks to work [he was a tad odd, that chap].

Oh pooooor Di, she's lost her lovely task of washing socks for Jez.

Heh. It was a ploy. A plot. A plan. All women with hubbies should try this one.
