Re: Help with erection...

Thanks again, Billy

Re: Help with erection...

Thanks for that, most helpful. On a similar theme to the prop idea; what about two props? If I fit 'lifting eyes' to all the corners of the roof, and insert two hooks fitted onto the ends of poles, would that seem like a good idea do you think?

And we must be wimps because our roof is lighter than yours! I've tried the Spinach thing but I'm that weak, I can't get the...

I should explain that I'm only 5ft 7 and Shell is probably 5ft 4ish. Also, I have osteo-arthritis of the spine and as such it was...

Re: Hellooooo - Portafold Wanted

Futher up-date; Hoooooray! I/we have a little Portafold! Well, I say 'little' but they're probably all the same size but 'little' compared to the Cheltenham caravan that I thought i'd have to buy 'coz I never thought i'd get to own a Portafold. We bought it off a smashing chap who is a member on her...
