I first came across the 'dogging' expression when looking for history on our local greyhound racing track.
OK... There are some magnificent archive photographs from my own, Shawfield in Glasgow!

Possibly you could form a 'Save Ablution' society ? Meetings in the local scout hut 7 PM every second Wednesday.

Good idea, there should be something to encourage ablutions- Boots now sell a deodorant that boasts that it lasts 72 hours. What sort of savage is not cleaning themselves for three effing days?

Oh yes, nearly forgot. What mystery was I pondering ?

I was looking at one of my old threads. Quit interesting statistics.

Opened Jan 14. 9 responses.
Jan 15 48 responses.
Jan 16 30 responses.
Jan 17 9 responses.
Jan 19 5 responses.
finished Jan 20 13 responses.

January 15 was a busy day ?

Not so much pruned, as pollarded.

:)

Doing my evening ablutions.

I've nothing else to say, but I just like dropping the word 'ablutions' into a conversation every chance I get.
We all have our idiosyncrasies - going through a phase where I must respond to any annoying assertions, 'how does this fit in with religion, then'?

I was putting a plaster on my finger which I'd bashed/gashed by accidentally belting it with the barrel of the door lock that we'd just replaced.
A key broke off in it and I was hoping to knock the snapped bit out.

Sounds painful. Hope you're ok.

How kind, thank you!

Yup, it's all plastered up now, not postered as in my original post.

I did eventually get the broken bit of key out by soaking it in oil and banging it on the front step until a few milimetres emerged, then dragging it out with pliers.
The old locks are of no use to us but I thought I might donate them to someone who needs them.

Ouch, be careful woman, and thats a good idea, there will always be someone at sometime who wants a lock.
Yup, apparently female is the default.

Picked that up from my grandfather who picked it up in the Royal Artillery as a young man.

Personally, five minutes ago I was helping my daughter complete her Lego 'Friends' pool resort set.

It's rather good (overpriced, of course), but even as a one-time hobby modeller, I found it to be a bit damned fiddly!
