Sturmey Archer’s Slipped Cogs


#401

In a humane manner. It’s not her fault she’s like that. [citation needed]


#402

Look no further than Jennifer bloody Aldridge. Actually, it’s Brian’s fault a bit too.


#403

Good point - highly libidinous parents - profligate breeders both…


#404

It is more their over-indulgence of her that I had in mind.


#405

I was thinking nature not burture but both played a role undoubtedly…


#406

Did Brine not spoil Kate as the only child he produced until myson appeared?


#407

Do you know something I don’t about Alice’s parentage?


#408

Turdsday’s scrapeage:

…wierd, I’ve never really thought of Tracee has having anything other than standards which were very, very low!


#409

FunMum beat me to it but ALICE - was the baby of the family and B’s youngest until son and heir appeared on t’other side of blanket…Alice was given new ponies/horses galore (as was Debbie come to think of it but that was the competitive StepDad in him) …


#410

Leave Tracee alone - she is my favourite by far now Caroline is a gonner - positive role model in fact…she is a total laaaaarrfff unlike all the other gals in Ambridge - Jolene and Lilian are sound enough though and Alice sounded fun when she was seriously on the lash…


#411

Ok I am wrong (what’s new?)

Kate was just a spoilt willful brat who never learned how to control herself in any way

I dislike her intensely and I feel for Jakob being shackled to her in any way


#412

You did have a point though - by the time Alice was born Kate had been Brian’s sole offspring for almost 11 years and that’s plenty long enough for her to have become thoroughly spoiled.


#413

Specially if she was left out of the fridge.


#414

< JD voice > Oh, Brian! < /JD voice >


#415

Consider yerself shunned. (OK, Lilian is just about permissible. I used to like her, once. Pre-Elliot. Actually, pre-Matt’s-brother-wossisname)


#416

It was Paul - a specialist stonemason who restored listed buildings/churches etc …a cut above our Gav…I better the latter has a builder’s bum


#417

A noble calling, I grant you: but not per se an excuse for shagging him.

Actually, wasn’t it ‘half-brother’?


#418

It was half brother indeed but clearly they shared the same Y chromosome but Paul was more in touch with his feminine side - or was he?? - maybe he went a bit Rob like??? I can’t really remember - busy writing abotu Kenton, Caroline and Aunty Chris for conference - I have many many hours of happy listening ahead of me when I access the archives (if they let me into the BL that is!)


#419

Exactly so.

B & J did learn the lesson in the end though and kept Ruairi in a cold cellar for however many years, J’s fridge being too full of wine to fit him in.


#420

Brian had a separate wine-fridge.
