    With you on that one Debbie - Pringles would barely last 3 minutes in our house, let alone 3 days.

    Barry is obviously a man of great restraint and he said he likes soggy crisps, so any that have been through a wash he'll have

    Love Ellie.

    I will decline the washed variety as I hate the taste of soap. Speaking of things that last a long time I was sorting out my store cupboard yesterday since I don’t do much fancy cooking now and I discovered herbs, spices, nuts and flour that had best before 2011. My waste bin smells of aromatic spices now. Next job is my wardrobe.

    I wonder how long it will take Kayleigh to conjure up a tale of wit to my hoarding tendencies.

    Love,
    Barry
    Iím going to do this even if it kills me!

    It might take me a few minutes Barry!

    Because, first I need to unclutter my mind (by filing my thoughts, ousting all the out-of-date emojis, slinging any stale hugs & kisses on the compost heap, and upcycling any leftover LOLs!).

    Love
    Kayleigh

    Hello Barry,

    Yes, it took me a bit longer than a few minutes LOL - but I have managed to rustle-up a 'Rhyme' just for you (using my newly uncluttered mind LOL)....

    Sweetie Barry - you'll be
    as busy as worker bees
    (sorting through your
    collection of 'antiquities').

    Unwanted items could
    sell on e-bay or Gumtree
    (or gifted to family &
    friends or local charities).

    Car-boot sales might be
    one of other possibilities
    (giving people a chance
    to buy your offerings).

    Including, vintage clobber
    from the 1960's and '70s
    (such as flares & boots
    with platform heels).

    Selling unscratched LPs
    & CDs could be a breeze?
    (eg by Elvis Costello, B52s
    or The Squeeze).

    Video cassettes don't sell
    as well as modern DVDs
    (but classics like Jaws
    - or Baywatch?? LOL -
    never fail to please!).

    When sorting out your
    candy-cart of sweeties
    (with the help of Sugar
    Daddy's honey bees).

    Keep any unwanted
    'Old Jamaican' bars
    (To send onto me,
    sweet & pretty please!).

    Sending love and hugs
    to you & your family
    (From one of your forum
    friends, Crackerkaleigh x).

    But .....

    Keep the '70s fondue, my
    puns offer free cheese!
    (and re-purpose ancient
    'Old Spice' as 'Febreeze'!) LOL

    Love
    Kayleigh

    Iím confused, Barry.

    Why do you want to make your wardrobe smell of out-of-date spices?

    Hi Dina,

    Your post to Barry has got me mulling over a question (while I'm sipping my hot toddy of spiced rum):-

    I wonder what makes the best bin/wardrobe freshener?:-

    - Out-of-date mixed spice?
    or
    -Out-of-date 'Old Spice' (the men's cologne)?

    Or it might be a good thing to double the potency, by combining them together to make:-

    - Out-of-date Allspice.

    Perhaps we should season the moment and ask the Spice Girls? - with their music being so old, they should be an expert on what to do with surplus supplies that are spicy but very out-of-date! LOL

    (Although, some might say that their music was too bland to be called spicy anyway!) LOL

    Love,
    Kayleigh

    Dina I don’t want to spice up my wardrobe but I do want a clear out. My 70’s gear was dispatched to the bin many years ago but I still hang on to my work clothes even though I retired 7 years ago.

    I knew I could rely on Kayleigh but I’m not about to part with my music. Music was my first love and music will be my last. https://youtu.be/egwARrX1ik8

    A proper song with proper musicians.

    Love,
    Barry
    Iím going to do this even if it kills me!

    Hi Barry,

    Are you also intending to keep all your Baywatch DVDs (or perhaps Doug has still got them on loan from you??) LOL

    Love
    Kayleigh

    P.S I'm making do, with the rum in my hot toddies - beecause if those honey bees of yours buzz their way to any 'Old Jamaican' rum chocolate in you candy-cart, I beelieve they will quickly buzz-off and hive them away.

    (I don't have much rum in my hot toddies - because I don't want to get spiced out! - Cheers!)

    Now I know Kayleigh’s sleep solution, steady with the rum.

    My father wore old spice and I remember the ads with Henry Cooper. Fortunately there are better after shaves available today.

    I must confess to never seeing an episode of bay watch, something to do with lifeguards!!!

    Spice Girls-no comment.

    Love,
    Barry
