Bugger!

Bill Phillips: Not worth the risk Ray
Nice manor Bill - I'll stay off the lawn, if you'll invite me in for tea?!

Ahh - this must be Alan Rolfe's house!
Bill Phillips: It could well be.
lol! Now that would make a nice country retreat. I can just imagine having tea on the balcony. (:o)
Bill Phillips: with some nice scones and jam and cream perhaps?

a beautiful, old looking photo - I want to push away this odd sign offending our view of this impressived manor house -surely NT or English Heritage? Oh, I'm afraid you posted this ugly sign, Mr. Twiddler?
Oh, Alan Rolfe's House - then this BBC needed at least 10 servants and five wives!
Bill Phillips: The sign is indeed mine Philine. Brodsworth is NT and well worth a look. Actually Brodsworth is English Heritage!

Can you please translate that for me Mr. Droitwich??? Does this mean we can set the picnic table for at least 4 Bacon Butties??
Bill Phillips: Um no.

Super, super, this is the stuff Bill, gimmee more like this. This feel like the genuine Bill, like yestertag. I am still laughing out loud.
Bill Phillips: Hopefully your merriment will continue tomorrow Chad.
Well take your own advice then.I to have man flu bewarned.
Bill Phillips: You'll get no sympathy from me Mick. Get some sea air and you soon be back to your cantankerous best
Ripe for restoration ... as my weekend house! Great idea Bill.
Bill Phillips: English Heritage might have something to say about that Neil!
Twiddling the thumbs and the toes.
Bill Phillips: Yup!
Do I assume that this is occupied by the mega-wealthy upper class who don't want the hoy-polloy tramping around the gardens or residence? Even at a price?
Bill Phillips: Admission is about ten quid i think Sheila. It is looked after by English Heritage.

There's nothing like a nice welcoming sign.. and this is nothing like a nice welcoming sign.
Bill Phillips: Clear and concise though
Nothing ambiguous about this, so much better than 'private' I watched the the Radio 2 folk awards last night, good stuff.
Bill Phillips: I didn't even know there were Radio 2 folk awards. i like a bit of folk music now and then
And there's me about to knock the door with a multi-million pound winning cheque for you from the Lottery, oh well!
Bill Phillips: You can always bring it to my other house Brian. all are welcome there

So we're not welcome Bill grin
Bill Phillips: Nope!
I should think so too!
Bill Phillips: You have to take a firm line Tom
OK, OK. I'm just going!
Bill Phillips: And don't forget to pick up your littergrin
LOL wish i had that sign outside of my old house; but i bet the locals would ignore it anyway...
Bill Phillips: It would probably be a challenge to them grin
It that's how you feel about it Bill... i will just take my bottle of Louis XIII Cognac and go homegrin....petersmile
Bill Phillips: A decent malt and I'll remove the sign. I don't drink Cognac grin
