What parts of the country would this be most suitable for ?   {-)
Sileby, Leicestershire - One village with one face - even the dogs there have club feet;
Arkwright Town, Chesterfield - the Luffwaffe bombers heading for Sheffield actually flew around  it;
Albert Village, Leics - where the sparrows fly backwards to keep the muck out of their eyes;
and last and by all means least -
Shirebrook, Notts - where they still think Elvis is alive, and anyone with an IQ of over 90 is called a snob (and is very, very lonely......)
Only my opinion, mind you  8)

I collect amusing T shirts.  I have a wonderful old one with a monty Python style Gumbo character and the caption . . .
"I'm a Tourist.  I Wouldn't Live Here If You Paid Me".

It's all or nothing in there. Just a couple of weeks ago I was in there in the evening and was the only customer. It happens quite often. All the till operators sit about chatting. It must be what it's like to be the Queen when she goes shopping....which I'm sure she does.  O0

 forgot to add to rmmaddock
 We down here in Cornwall have to be polite to our visitors,as we rely on their money to sustain us,and a few short weeks of the influx of kids and families,has to be accepted, so that we can come up to the Lake district and annoy you lot! lol.
My main gripe is the utter idiots who have no respect for the sea,and put our Lifeboat Service at risk through their own stupidity in most cases.I cant climb a lake district peak,much as I would like to, so why do people who cant climb cliffs come down here and do it?
Call them Emmets, grockles or whatever you want, but to me the daft ones are known as PILES ----- a pain in the ar**

Oh dear, I've upset people.
Hey ho. C'est la vie.
Yes, I'm honoured to live here.
Yes, lots of people's incomes rely on tourism.
For reference purposes, I'd just point out that much of the income round here comes from the arms business, pharmaceuticals and nuclear power generation. Our personal income has nothing to do with tourism. You'll find some of the poorest people in the country within a stones throw of here.
Oh, and my initial comment could well have been tongue in cheek based on my just having had a bad time trying to park outside my house due to wedding guests at the local church having parked so badly and the fact that our house guest is an elderly lady who cannot walk more than a few yards.
Alternatively I could just be a pompous bigot who doesn't know he's born.....you choose.

It could have been worse as confetti is not allowed to be thrown in church yards they could have thrown it outside your house  {-) {-) {-) {-) {-) {-)

Very true Tony. Mind you, it looked like a military wedding so I think I'd have kept quiet  :embarrassed:
Nice Roller though.

I can't park my car within 1/4 mile of the house

Your visitors are only seasonal now - but that will surely all change
once people hear about Mr Maddock's Wonderful Nobby :embarrassed:
