The Thingamajig

D ug it out from under the stairs, I knew it would be useful someday. S aving it I was for future repairs, C huffed I never threw it away. A ll in good order as good as new, R atchets and spindles all spinning. D amned if I know what it used to do, E minently too good for binning. D on't care what the missus might say, ...........I'm keeping this sucker for a rainy day.

Emilia, I think that there’s a little ‘hoarder’ in all of us. Sod’s law says that the minute you throw something away, that’s when you need it. I’m worried, we haven’t even discussed numbers and already you’re offering me a discount. Gotta read that small print xx
