I'm not worried, I am well prepared...(I have a bucket on standby)
Ewwww, that's beyond the pail.
Don't remind me I have to descend the stairs to go to the loo - if I climb them tonight, that is!!
Pass the pail! Haha!
Ouch! Ignore the children, their turn will come.
I get aches and pains in other ways so I'm qualified to be able to leg pull if that's what you mean
Haven't you got a gozunder?
I recall grandma, when emptying grandads after a heavy night, referring to them as thumb enders
Time to go and also buy a Micrometer? Working in a machine shop taught me not to trust Vernier Calipers - even those with digital displays - due to the interference fit between the 2 components - A plunger dial gauge can be just a variable because it depends on being presented absolutely square to its other working surface, which also must also be flat.
These are why men were expected to walk next to the pavement edge - The first floor on many old buildings overhung the streets, and the Guzunder would be tipped out of a window ... ... which explains why women wore wide-rimmed hats!
I suppose the modern version of that is the "gentlemen, and women" who have their windscreen washers set up to shoot water over the roof and wash the windscreen of the car behind.
It's nice to share.
I was surprised to read (a few minutes ago) that a keeper at a Madrid zoo has been injured in an attack by a gorilla - I thought the keeping of primates in zoos was a thing of the past.
Bristol zoo has a successful breeding group of gorillas. Longleat has a bachelor group of brothers.
You have to think about the origins of the animals. Nowadays they're almost never caught in the wild but are bred in zoos, which raises the question of what to do with them if the zoo has a change of policy or closes. Many such animals have no experience, let alone ability of living in the wild so that zoos have no choice but to keep them alive until nature takes its course.......or euthanasia.............
Our local wildlife parks, Port Lympne and Howletts, have sussesful breeding groups of gorillas and have transferred some back to Africa.
Even when the recipient really doesn't want their share?
The keeper is a primate too
WGMGs - Midges, I currently have a small plague in my living room. I think they have been breeding in the compost I repotted my pet Canna Lily into just before lock down.
I actually have a micrometer, but it seemed a bit like overkill. Any way, I would still have had the same problem - the arms were not long enough to reach the centre where the bulge is.
