    How about....

    MORPH

    Short for Morphine, you know, a slow acting dope.

    Look at three of your friends, if they are ok, your it.

    Naughty little Kiwi--it looks as tho you have obtained a PhD in Aussie Charm and Deportment.

    By the way-regards from Whangaparaoa, we never did get to injest a amber liquid or two. Previously "EllEffBee" then "Tooanfrom" (only changed cos every time this lot changes the setup--all my previous gets wiped!)

    How about "The Pids"? I am sure they will work it out --eventually.

    Kiwi--if you need to "E" me--and I hope you do, Superchef has my home address--the setup that is currently in vogue with Firehouse is a pigs breakfast(or more likely it is due to Pilot error(moi)--or do it thru this thread.

    Thought you were in Perth?

    Righto Memsaib.

    Will get the addy from Cheffie.

    Perth came a Gutsa due to PPP

    As opposed to PPPPPP

    Commonly reffered to as 3P and 6P

    Did you leave one of them out in the rain ?

    Possibly

    "Big Red" for the nickname.

    "Little Flick" for the probies.

    Patty--we have to be very circumspect explaining certain things in our part of the world--in the land of the "Septic Tanks" knocking a female up means a whole lot more than giving her a early morning shake. And that might even need clarifying!

    On the Farley side of Reidland Farley Fire Protection District,we're the Farlem Knights.
    The Reidland guys and gals have been trying for two years to think of something.But,they're the part of the family that gets all the new toys while we"get the cardboard box"so I guess it evens out somewhere.

    I got a septic tank. The evaporation trenches keep the grass REALLY green and ,unfortunately, REALLY fast growing.

    yeah, two of my brothers knocked their girlfriends up. One is due in January and the other is due half way through next year.

    I'd rather go to Fires in the Smaller of the two Red things............

    Since you're at the substation, which is somewhat of an outpost, try "Outpost Outcasts"
