    Not that great here, but I laugh at it. I once stayed with a friend at a convent in Belgium (because it was cheaper there than the Youth Hostel).

    There was another (middle aged) lady staying there that had a whole bowlful of prunes every morning for breakfast, with the addition of one spoonful of porridge. She was a great source of conversation between myself and my friend. We thought she needed help. LOL.

    Gutteral - goth the 'g' at the beginning and the 'gh' at the end. Like clearing the throat pretty much describes it.

    BTW - I didn't want to spoil lacelady's joke, I can see it may have been construed like that and it absolutely WASN'T my intention. Sorry for any possible offence caused, LL - end of hijack. :D

    None taken, they aren't my original lines, I just passed them on as I thought they were funny.

    lacelady, i am still sending them around. everyone i i know is gogh-ing nuts over this. when i tell them where it comes from, they can't believe it's from a quilting forum. their forums and guilds are way stuffy. i'm getting all tired, patting everyone on the back!

    thank you.

    Glad everyone is enjoying them, they are just a bit of fun, and most people can think of perhaps adding one or two to them too.
