    BB ............ the lady has a real talent for altering language . Making mistakes in another language is what everybody does - but she excels because her mistakes could be believed . meaning she doesn't produce gobbledygook . " Bikini " isn't that far wrong so I leave her to ordering tiles for her bikini !

    Her very best was in England . She was in the garden but she came back in a bit hastily .

    Me: " What's wrong ? "

    She " Not happy . Harry Potter looking me in garden "

    I had to think about that one and I didn't get to the solution . " Harry Potter ? Harry Potter ? You say Harry Potter is looking at you in the garden ??? "

    .................................................. ............. I'll give you a minute BB .

    There's a helicopter base not far from here .

    I kept her on her toes by telling her they were flying around looking for any Asian people because we don't like them .

    The Robin Hoods ? Just Robins ............ but she thought anything called " Robin " was automatically " Robin Hood " .

    And May Marion .

    I asked " May she what ? " but got nowhere .

    She thinks all Prime Ministers are called " Tony Blair " .

    So the leader of Germany is Tony Blair Angela .


    ............ and she can't handle the word "sailor" so the guys in ships are all " soldier boat " !

    It's sweet .

    Goodnight .

    To Roobarb and Bettyboo and BB and Marmite and palexxxx and Dillinger and Koetjeka and anyone still reading this thread ..... I send a gift .

    We could each spend hours sending out Youtube suggestions .... and thank God people don't .

    But there's one . Just one . That I have to look at maybe once a day . Because it's so good . If there's an ad you can usually skip it .

    So do have a look and I'll never do this again .

    ( at the very start you might think " Bloody Nora ! " but it soon changes . )

    Well thank you Wasp, and how appropriate that it ends up with a clip from the Wizard of Oz. A part of the staple diet in several of the better Teak Door threads is reference by someone to the fact that "this ain't Kansas".

    Indeed it's not.

    Well done, a very enjoyable and somewhat unexpected read.

    crocman ........... quite a few of you have got a little ID photo next to your name .

    In your case a pair of yellow crocs . ( hence the yellow font ).

    How do you do that ? I've tried the obvious place " My Profile " but I don't see where one does this .

    Never thought I'd be asking a croc to help me .

    Hmmm, that's interesting, different...




    What's going on here??? It's becoming massive. I thought this thread was a small extension, clearly not so; you're building a Greco-Roman palace. Throw missy some more dosh and let have a look at some of these pics:









    Missy is sure making a statement to the locals as to where the power lies now!!!



    I don't know where this will end, but its gonna get bigger...
    How do I post these pictures???

    thanks heaps for this thread, I have enjoyed every bit of it so far and will keep reading until the end if you ever get there.
    You have made me laugh because you brought back memories particularly in regard to the way english is learned by some people. When my missus first came to Australia and starting using english more, she somehow got the colours blue and green reversed so I was always asking "green like the sky?" or "blue like the grass?". Her usual response was "f*#k off smart arse". I was going to ask about the "harry potter thing but you already explained that one, I didn't have a clue what you (her) were talking about.

    I also think you must be "a good man" as per your post #69 where you made the comment about helping one and you help 30. Many times, probably daily, the relatives have at least 1 meal at our place, but how could we begrudge that when we have so much in comparison. I asked my sister in law one day whether life had changed for her family since I came on the scene. Her answer surprised me in that she spoke about simple things that I would not have thought of such there is now a car available that can drive them or their kids to hospital if they get sick and also the fact that they never have to go hungry for days.

    Anyway back to your thread. I personally think she (Missy) has done a wonderful job with the transformation. I love the roman columns much better than the bloody square posts you normally see. As for the extension beyond the "bikini" I am wondering what happens if she goes all the way along the back and joins up to the toilet off the end of the kitchen, does that mean you now have the brother surrounded and trappedin the middle of the house?

    Keep posting so I can keep smiling, love ya work.

    Maybe she is just colour challenged, you cruel cruel man...

    Many years ago, for some strange reason, I sometimes threw out some corrections to my missus' English (which is good when she wants it to be, goes all BBC if we meet one of my hiso Thai colleagues, but generally is pigin style...), maybe for a few days, whenever she said something along the lines of "I is going shopping", so I just kept reading my book or whatever and threw out "I am". So, she clearly got bored of this (even though she had asked me to highlight any errors because she wanted to improve her English...), came home and said "I is", I said "I am", she said "I is" then stared at me waiting for something... I said "I am". She said "I is the ninth letter of the alphabet." then laughed her little head off...

    Thank you VERY much Ootai . Such a comment does make me warm .
    Someone said there have been Building Threads that have been " shite" and I just wanted my Thread not to be classed that way .

    The Thread's a bit strung out as we go off on other themes .... but that's how conversations go .


    You make a couple of points ::: Your lady confusing Blue and Green .

    Now that may become annoying but I can't see it endangering your life much .

    Whereas my missy cannot get " Left " and " Right " sorted out . Which IS life-threatening as you approach a roundabout in Belgium and she has the maps and she says most emphatically " Right " and uses her arm to indicate " Left " !!!!

    And as to : " I also think you must be "a good man" " Well - I don't think that way about myself . I think when I was very young and people had less then people were all basically good . They helped each other . There was a small point in a Henning Mankell book when he said people stopped being nice when they stopped darning socks ! Meaning you don't see people darning socks and chatting any more . At some point we became a throwaway society so people don't darn any more ... and they don't display care . I don't think I'm good . I think I'm decent . But in the West I'm surrounded by people who are not decent . Making me look better.

    But thank you sincerely for the thought .
