Crabtree Quote Nº 4

We thought it time for another gem:

"Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, kick him in the goolies."

E-mail from Milford (Part II)

The second riveting post from our friend 'Hobbs':

Yet when we have the courage and preparedness to say 'yes', amazing things can happen. Accepting the gift with honesty and appreciation is a wonderful gift back, though mainly unspoken and intangible. Go on, give this simple rule a run this week! It's like saying, 'Well, well, how wonderful that someone appreciates what I do sometimes, you are so kind for giving me the feedback that what I do is valued'. So, I said 'Thank you, I appreciate that you have made this gesture, and I'm very grateful'.

We look forward to your next e-mail Milford !

E-mail from Milford (Part I)

We've had an e-mail from Milford under one of his codenames, 'Hobbs'. Here it is:

At the end, everyone was provided with a substantial piece of apple pie and offered thick dollops of cream from a jug. Sometimes you can combine 'active' with 'break' very inexpensively. Putting timers on indoor lights to suggest that someone is home at night can also help mask travel plans. So making sure that you do more of what you enjoy and are naturally good at makes us feel great and realise that we are contributing, truly and making a difference somewhere. Then you truly can have the cream in your business relationships - and it will, I promise you, taste really good! Someone said, in a flippant moment, 'Exciting things happen when you say 'yes'', which I thought was quite interesting and likely is quite true as well. This constant squeezing of our comfort in our own skin can make us feel despondent and unhappy.
That can apply to anything. Putting timers on indoor lights to suggest that someone is home at night can also help mask travel plans.

Milford, we couldn't agree more !

Stay tuned for the next exciting episode.

We’ve had a communication from one of Milford’s old school friends:

I was at school with Milford Crabtree. Ugly bleeder. Always breaking wind due to being a big fan of the old baked bean. He came unstuck though one day early on in his school life. It was in the days when we were still wearing short trousers; he came up to a group of us and did the loudest fart that we’d ever heard. Result, he shat himself. We all laughed but Milford burst into tears. He wandered round and round the playground crying as the diarrhoea ran slowly down his leg. Don’t expect he’d like to be reminded of it now.” - Doris Newbold

Thanks Doris for sharing that with us.

Milford's Odd Trick

It doesn't take many drinks for Milford to do his party trick - The Elephant.
Pulling out the inner part of his trouser pockets, unzipping his flies and getting his knob out he is usually heard to say "Ladies, meet Nelly the Elephant".

Apparently Dutch police "had a word" with him, but he hasn't been charged !
