This year I got you a great gift John, but you'll have to drop by and pick it up yourself as I'm not paying for the shipping!

Yep it looks that way doesn't it?

@Charlie I think he's already got a wife - we've already ascertained that for most of us one is more than enough!

Oh it is a great gift.

But it isn't a heavy one - I'm just too tightfisted to pay for the shipping...

...that's all.

Bah humbug etc etc etc

Now that little doll looks cute (but don't they all when you start out?!!!)

Nah seriously - if the man behind the legend ever makes it over to this neck of the woods I'd like to meet him - for that reason I'll conjure up a (non existent) Birthday / Christmas present.

In the mean time Happy Birthday John. I hope it's a good 'un.
