This week I'm grape picking for a living. As I write I'm both tired, irascible, and off to bed.

Goodnight.

The knackered one.

Oh ... right ... amuse yourselves at my expense ... see if I care. :devlish: Having worked the morning in ever heavier rain, we were sent home. Not to save us from pneumonia, oh no! Pickers are dispensable. We stopped because Pinot Noir grapes mustn't, once picked, get too wet. They catch cold, and refuse to get involved in making good wine. Bless. I can see their point. :confused: Camy

Dear Camy. We aren't amusing ourselves at your expense. Truly not. You have just given us such excellent material from which to work, that none of us could help but become creative from the genius of the nucleus you provided. :confused: (In other words, you're a good straight man...er...uh...I mean...um... Oh, never mind.) :devlish:

Where are you, Camy? Surely they don't grow Pinot Noir grapes in Surrey, do they? Or Yorkshire or even Scotland? Somehow I had the impression your soil was good for making pottery out of but not for nurturing the delicate Pinot Noir grape.So you must be elsewhere. France? Parles vous Francias? Mais oui, naturalement. You attended public school. They certainly wouldn't have missed teaching you the classic languages.But I digress. I was wondering where you are? Are you traveling on the continent? And why did you take employment as a picker? Is this some sort of vacation camp where you pay to pick someone's grapes?I always thought the British has a touch of the balmy in them.<g>C

Pay? PAY? :confused: You think I'm PAYING for this ... this ... purgatory. Daft and balmy I may be, but not quite that daft and balmy. :devlish: Pinot Noir grows quite happily in Kent.Yours, still knackered,Camy
