Passports

Post by PennyandDerek on Sun Apr 27, 2014 6:52 pm

Just got back from London (seeing No.1 Son).

Lying on the mat are two identical envelopes addressed to Penny and I.
They are both about the size of a passport.
They are both about the thickness of a passport.
They are both marked "THIS IS NOT A CIRCULAR - Important Documents enclosed"
At the top they are both marked (in bold type) "Her Majesty's Passport Office"


I wonder if these are our new passports arriving in discreet packaging, thus allaying any fears of being fraudulently intercepted????  hugegrins   hugegrins   hugegrins   hugegrins

Maybe they decided that "Dolton deepest Devon"  was not top of the MI5 list of places  harbouring closet extremists and political agitators plotting dastardly deeds against Her Majesty's Government and her citizens so it was worth the risk?
And indeed if "Dolton, Deepest Devon" is your address I'm amazed it got to you at all!"

It is indeed our address, Pablo.

You understand, it's not us that are the political agitators and (dare I say it) quite overt extremists.

It's that lot over the border, to the South-West. As you have read in the news, they are on the brink of declaring independence. Rumour has it, they have the 'support' of someone called Putin.

We have to have our passports to make sure we can get back over the River Tamar to safety!!!  snigger

You do know don't you that before independence the intention is to dredge the filled in bits of the Tamar so that Kernow is officially an Island. There is a deal on offer though, we would like to give you Ginsters Pasties and will throw in a Duchess as well ( might improve the pasties). In return I promise not to come up to Branscombe again and plunder your shipwrecks ........ up!

Thanks but no thanks the deal would only be acceptable if a) you DIDN'T throw in the Ginsters Pasties (all gristle and pastry grockle fodder)  and certainly don't throw in the "Duchess" as she costs us an arm and a leg, you can carry on paying for her. Oh and you'll be hearing from HM Customs and Excise soon as they are still looking for the Cornish Wreckers who looted the containers.........
And to think we've just spent £25million repairing the railway line at Dawlish so the trains could again run to Cornwall? There's gratitude for you!

Ooo aaah - Pasties.

'Ang about a bit Pablo,
Since we motorhomers have got very little reason for going to Cornwall now - pavemented sea wall at Marazion, no overnight with a fish and chip supper at Widemouth bay - and disincentives at all points inbetween; we should aim to get something out of the deal.
A continuous supply of Ginsters (minus added 'Duchess' gravy) could save us all a fortune buying bacon butties in the laybys.

Rebuilding the Dawlish railway line was the best thing. Cattle class, bring your own brollie, seems entirely appropriate. The alternative of the 'escaping' Cornish and Grockles coming up the Granite Way to Okie was a little bit too close for comfort for us lot 'up t'north'.
