I've been wondering!!!!
Ive been wondering for some time about several things including my bus pass. Okay, Ive got one but what was worrying me was the fact that it had an expiry date on it. The date was my birthday this year and Ive been wondering if someone, somewhere knew something I didnt. Was it simply that Id get a new one when this one expires or was it something deeper? Could it be that They knew that I wouldnt be needing one after that date? Was I about to be posted to the Senior Squadron as we say in the cavalry? Imagine my relief today good Gentlefolk when I received an invitation to renew my pass and instructions as to how I could do it by simply popping onto the internet. I am now awaiting the day when my new pass will drop through the letter box. Another thing Ive been wondering about is - has anyone else got something theyve been wondering about? Im sure Im not alone. I wonder.........mmmmmm? TC.
Yes! I have been wondering when they will tell me that I am not getting my pass at 62 (which they moved it to from 60, just before I got there) and it will be 65..............
I am also wondering when they are going to move the nations capital from decrepit, decaying Londinium to somewhere more competent such as, Lower Gornal or Halesowen, say....or anywhere in the Black Country would be a vast improvement, innit!
I have no need of a bus pass...........no bus! Like Colin, I have lost height. I am now nearly two inches shorter than when I left the RN 37 years ago, and yet the ground is further away. Perhaps my arms have shrunk, which might explain why my ears have got bigger. (redistribution). One great bonus that has emerged from my advancing years is the way in which ladies regard me. Until recently I was a dirty old man, as indeed I was a dirty young man before that, but now, all of a sudden, Im "cute". I am hoping that this is the prelude to becoming "cuddly". I have to face the fact that there are lots of things I cant do that I used to do when I was young, but the consolation is that I dont want to do them. Something I have been wondering:- If all the world loves a lover, who invented tights?
I had to renew my free bus pass every 5 years when I lived up in Scotland, then had to renew it again when I moved down to England. It too has a 5 year expiry date.
"Double skinny Latte?? Ive been wondering why I cannot go into a cafe these days and get a mere cup of coffee - white no sugar. The bored staff point at a notice board with all manner of concoctions which, they assert, is the coffee menu.
Quoting: Owen Hunter Same when I used to live in Scotland Ray, I'm English but couldn't travel free in England on my Scottish bus pass. thats because scotland has its own parliament now owen, you should have done what a lot of englishmen did ,made a quick trip over the border and registered yourself in uk. ock aye the noo,or something like that ! here in oz all states accept each others concession passes regards ray
Ive been wondering the same thing about coffee in cafes these days. A while back I went into a Starbucks and the Chinese girl behind the counter did the same pointing to the Menu routine that Roger experienced. I said I just wanted a normal coffee but there doesnt seem to be one. Her next question was How many shots? I told her it wasnt a rifle range but it went over her head. I finally ended up with a drink but it didnt taste like any coffee Id ever had before. First and last time in a Starbucks for me. Three lots of milk and six sugars and I still couldnt drink it. TC.
Theres a simple reason Syd which is that the spoon was stuck and not from the sugar. It was still like mud. Like I said - first and last time for me. Its like a lot of other things - dress something up, charge a fancy price and lots of people will think they are being trendy and not realise they are being taken for a ride. Getting back to the threads basis:- Ive been wondering about what a friend told me recently. His daughter has just had a holiday in Ibiza which is a place weve been to several times and which I love as a holiday resort. He said that she had been to the islands biggest nightclub where she paid £80 just to go in! He said he knew that it was a lot of money but that there was the Entertainment and that These DJs are the stars nowadays. The entertainment is listening to music played at unbearable levels (for me) while drinking over-priced drinks and being crushed by crowds after having been frisked at the entrance with anything edible or potable taken from you so that they can sell you their overpriced stuff inside.
I can well believe that as I have six in mine. Mind you I only stir two of them as I do not like too sweet..............

Quoting: Mike Pass Wrong thread, sorry! Last edited by Mike Pass Ive been wondering about that post since I read it!!!! TC.
As an avid Western fan, I could never understand why film cowboys never looked like the real thing. For instance, surely there was an actor somewhere who looked like Billy the Kid?
Quoting: John (scouse) Hirons Alright Terry, Ar ah me auld mate, cut the lad some slack, he is getting on you know, it'll happen to you one day. Its happened to him three times already. Its the incessant curtain calls that are the problem....
Quoting: John Richards As an avid Western fan, I could never understand why film cowboys never looked like the real thing. For instance, surely there was an actor somewhere who looked like Billy the Kid? Dont think much of his cardy, innit?!

Although come to think of it theres Danny de Vito for starters. TC.
Recently I connected my wifes family tree with my sister in laws, through a marriage in the 1890s. I was wondering therfore, given the number of members on this site, how many could be connected through their ancestry, makes you wonder Taking Terrys point, re starbucks, wonder no more, you cannot get a decent coffee at starbucks, and yes, you need at least six sugar. Time was of course when all you had to do was ask for a coffee, without needing a dictionary, it was served and enjoyed, and only four sugars required! but life was simple then.

Are moths just terrorist butterflies? And if they are so attracted to light why dont they just come out in the daytime??
If its cruel to stick pins in spiders, why to we sew zips on flies?
Ive been wondering why colanders were invented. If you want dry lettuce then dont wash it! TC.
Quoting: Terry Carey I've been wondering why colanders were invented. If you want dry lettuce then don't wash it! TC. Methinks you are the Happy Wanderer (o), innit! The idea of colanders is to wash the crap out of produce and away through the holes. Doesnt matter whether it is dry afterwards, or not. Damn! just remembered.....they dont have One Sheet (sp) or any other kitchen towel in Lancastershire yet!
Why did Popeye always stick his pipe up his nose?
Because he could not fit it in his right eye, innit!
