Can you add a discount gravy supplier ?
I might get some extra cool stuff .. if I save a little bit on a new trailer this year
It is a well documented fact that the Scots are a canny race .. and anyone who reads Gurnard’s adventures will appreciate my wallet is “tighter than a duck’s arse” . I have no problem in saying “No yae canny get any o ma hard won pension”.
I have been a wee bit depressed lately (as any aging miser worth his salt will be) with news of Council’s raising tax bills .. power companies promising higher prices .. broadband costs rising .. even the supermarket removing my Xmas loyalty discount on the Best Gravy money can buy.
To cap it all my washing machine died last week..and it was only 18 years old .. the replacement washed my months gravy allowance straight down the plug'ole .. so you can perhaps imagine how I felt when my favourite forum mentioned the word “support” in this thread ?
However despite my miserly nature .. I do realise the forum is still a totally free and fun place to be ..so I decided to show my thanks to the guys by offering to cover a very small amount of their server bill.. to see if I could wrangle a little supplier discount off a new trailer. I have always enjoyed sharing a tin of gravy with friends ..and I suspected that if I gave F Rib and Sibs one of my tins.. I would get one of their’s back.
So.. I sent Martin a tin of Gurnard gravy ..expecting to get a tin of Newcastle Broon Syrup in return. So you can imagine my surprise when the trailer supplier via F Rib and SIBs sent the equivalent of a bottle of the Golden Lotion back. It made my day guys
So this post is my way of saying thanks to the forum and also to the supplier ..for saying back to me .. thanks for your business (Supplier) and thanks for supporting our forum (Martin and Paul)
Cheers from me Guys..Im a very happy miser again
