She was a profoundly horrible person by all accounts. Imagine how many relatives we ought to know from her siblings alone? Not. One.

It may be no great loss.

Ricolas - 25 Apr 2019 21:03:51 (#63 of 2009)

Although perhaps not as dodgy as my great Aunt who (it is sometimes heavily hinted) might have had something to do with her first husband's premature demise...

Did MrsRic know what a risky business it was, marrying into your family?

Ricolas - 25 Apr 2019 21:15:31 (#65 of 2009)

Don't anger me, Dubris.

Dubris - 25 Apr 2019 21:18:46 (#66 of 2009)

Everybody stand back! - he's got a book token!

Ricolas - 25 Apr 2019 21:22:53 (#67 of 2009)

Sharpened into a throwing star, thoughbut.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaiiiieeeeeeeeeeeeee!

And it's only worth £6.98 - not not enough for a book for you OR any children you might know MWAH-HA-HA!!!

Dubris - 25 Apr 2019 21:29:05 (#70 of 2009)

Good grief. What a terrible thing.

Watch out for a flying tweed-panelled brogue.

my parents have FORCED me to enter my password and register their TV to my amazon prime account in what I can only describe as MASSIVE FRAUD. they are now watching season 5 of Bosch.

Jeff Beszos will be denied his £7.99 it seems and I can only hope the cops catch up with them soon.

Sabacious - 25 Apr 2019 21:45:48 (#73 of 2009)

I am shocked and appalled in equal measure.

Dubris - 25 Apr 2019 21:55:34 (#74 of 2009)

The apple doesn't fall far from the tree, if you take my meaning.

Sabacious - 25 Apr 2019 22:01:12 (#75 of 2009)

Quite so.

goldfinch - 25 Apr 2019 22:09:29 (#76 of 2009)

It's quite legal, slicey, it said so on Radio 4 last week.

goldfinch - 25 Apr 2019 22:10:33 (#77 of 2009)

My family were in shipping. My great grandmother spent the entire inheritance gadding about Europe.

slicey - 25 Apr 2019 22:22:54 (#78 of 2009)

I cannot defend my parents Finch. And can only hope the beak will show mercy should they end up in the dock.

Unless they sign out when I leave and promise not to watch the rest of the series. Although these are career hardened criminals in their late 70s we are talking about here...

slicey - 25 Apr 2019 22:23:24 (#79 of 2009)

If I had money I would definitely gad.

goldfinch - 25 Apr 2019 22:26:04 (#80 of 2009)

Seriously, there was a whole thing about Prime and Netflix sharing on R4 last week on a programme about the cost of singledom. It's not illegal apparently.
