Aunt dear Mert does wear a skirt

Not sure about Pert

Her best friend is not Bert

I'm sure talking like this, her feelings will not be hurt, nor will she be curt.

However, I'm still wondering about the yurt and weather it's made from dirt?

how about we construct 3 yurts -one for the women where the tea is always hot and MDC always on.

One for the kids with accoustic wall paper.

One for the men - don't much care what's in that one!

Edited to add; the woman Yurt should have some BIG fluffy beds so the kiddies can join us at night

We got the video years ago - then it came out on DVD and I got that too

I had a SERIOUS thing for Carry Ewles (sp?) after that movie : I think it's one of my all time favorites! The kids are off school Thurs and Fri - I think I'll torture them and make them watch it

Has anyone noticed Cynthia has yet to respond to this thread. I KNOW she knows it's here - I'm SURE she's read it - now I'm afraid, very, very afraid : What's she gonna do to us?
