-Elton Trueblood

For Mum (thanks for the quote, Karen!)

Incidentally, I got a new mop this weekend and it surprised me. I felt like we were Fred Astaire & Ginger Rogers
...except that I am female and don't dance anywhere near his genius and Miss Mop was a platinum blonde with a twig of a body...
yeh, so anyway, point being sometimes taking the plunge with a new mop is quite refreshing actually...
Glad that you took the plunge and went to 'Jolly Ole'?

Aaargh, not with the Mopping Metaphors again, I'm going to RESIST! My English mop lacks character...

Green Girl, people who plant trees are wise!
