Have you got anything planned?

I've booked a table at my favourite club for me and the wife.

I hope it goes better than last year.

She only potted three balls all night :wink:

Perhaps you could subtitle your posts in the future? :wink:

I dread to think what your interpretation of my failed attempt at humour was :shock:

I'll just say that it involved naughty bits. :shock:
Defenders of the true American version of Revolutionary English would have understood
