Could the Meldrew trophy be a bronze casting of a bow roller with the end of the anchor chain disappearing through it? The base would have "I don't believe it!" engraved on it. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Wouldn't that be the Meldrew/Meldrew award/


I get the Richard Briars Award. Mrs Lakesailor awards it every time she sees me untangling the telphone handset cord.

And have you noticed that how ever many times you untwist it, it still gets stwisted again. This means that each time you use the phone, you pick it up and subsequently put back down again always puttung the same twist into the cord.

I don't think it's peculiar to certain people - I think all humans do it when using a corded phone. I see it at home, at work, all over the place. In fact it..... DRIVES ME UP THE WALL!! /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif

Rene passes his affections to your lovely wife but he didn't seem to remember you when we spoke - the old guy is getting a little confused nowadays.
Anyway - got your immodium bought?
