Default Durability

My poor Beetle has been sat on the patio for about a year without use.

Rain, sleet and snow have all done their best to break it but........... it started on the third tug Even the servos have survived.

Servo saver was a bit stiff but a few squirts of WD40 had it back as it should.

Not bad...........

LOL

It was left on the patio because that's where it was last used, simple as that [8D]

I'm 32 with a mortgage, it's been a long time since Mum told me what to do

Wife races her motorbike, it's me who complains

Just to add - if you really don't get anything from your wife that your Mum doesn't offer you've either got a frigid wife or a very liberal minded Mum................

Becareful what you wish for young Grasshopper! [8D]
My ex was a fitness freak, she looked good but what a moody pain in the ___ she was to live with. We're still friends and I like her a lot better now! Everytime you see a gorgeous girl just think to yourself "some where in the world there is a guy who is sick of her S---" [8D][8D][8D][8D]
