Hi,



Nice one David and what a coincidence. Whilst in a store shopping early this morning I was having an interesting discussion with the guy who cleans the store floor; this guy is forever trying to convince me the world is flat quoting things like water is always level to which I reply strange when water is poured onto a ball the water doesn't sit level so you can guess the level of this discussion; I've also asked him if he walks directly in a straight line he will eventually fall off the edge of the earth and how would he return home without turning about face; I then asked him where he thought he would be in five years; his reply was "still operating this floor cleaning machine" now he was talking my language.

Kind regards, Colin.
So @Colin with age comes cynicism? That was a sharp one!

Applicant goes in for a job interview........
CEO: "Where do you see yourself in 5 years?"
Applicant: "Sitting in your chair.....but asking better questions."
Really good one! I need to find some genuine laughing emoji.

I went into a dollar store to get a few diaper pins....I asked the cute young fella where the diaper pins were......He replied, "I don't know what diaper pins are".....WOW..I stopped in my tracks and laughed......
.........

I had a young lady come up to my register, put her items on the counter, then say, "Wait, I'm not sure if this is what I want." (There was no one behind her, so no rush, and I did not mind waiting.) She kept picking up a can of butter flavored cooking spray, turning it over and reading the back of it. Still no one behind her, so I just watched. I like to watch people, and I admit, by now I was more than a bit curious!

Finally, she said (to herself, I think,) "It's the only thing I can find, so it'll have to do." Well, now, I am just way too curious, so I asked her, "What are you looking for?" She explained to me that she was shopping for an older relative, and on the list was... spray starch!!! :LOL:

"Oh, no, no, that is not what she wants!!!" :eek:

Please do! Hopefully, my clematis Apple blossom and another one will do exactly JUST THAT! :giggle::joyful:
In your honor and using a list you once kindly provided, I am going to try a few different clematis this year. There is a little more sun along the front fence since I removed some fruit trees.

Well it works best this way, if I pretend to be colorblind, and let my resident artist pick the palette, all will be well! I am curious myself. Right now she is questioning my judgement about bags of manure compost laying about, but I have some defense as it has been 20f out lately!
