Well, at the end of the day you could have promised her anything. And then do as you like. It's not as if she would have been in a position to do anything about it.

Problem is, that she would have told all her family that live round here

No flying involved I think she was angling to stay until the said event.

It seems to have gone very quiet . Are watermelons in season?

Hope it is not for the reason that my missus tried to limit my internet access years ago claiming I had 100s of online girlfriends. I said nothing until it came time to go to the bank pick up the money and do the monthly shop. I told her that because she had moaned about me using the internet I had not managed to transfer any money so best she get a job to pay for the monthly shop. Internet privileges restored and no mention of online girlfriends since then.

Hi All,

Its nice in a way to be missed, but the good news is that there is no news or anything of interest to post at the moment. She is very happy now as my betrothed and everything is a bed of roses. I guess that now she has a ring on her finger, it has gone a long way to allay her fears. Had to smile though after our engagement, she went down to the City Hall and got one of those affidavit things to certify that she is free to marry and proudly showed it to me. Bless her.

A note please on anonymity. With the kind consent of Admin, I now need strict anonymity and it will save the lovely BEVS a lot of future cutting and snipping. Thank you BEVS for your understanding on this. If anyone wants further info on this...just send a PM. Thanks for your understanding.

My future wife is calling me....

Regards all

There was a bit about Philippine logic in earlier posts in this thread.

This week I was in the bank to collect P45k, I asked for it in P500 notes so the girl took out a banded bundle of P50k of P500s and proceeded to count out 90 p500 notes twice and then put them in the counting machine that confirmed her counting was correct. I asked her, to save time and effort, why she did not count out 10 notes and then put the remainder in the automatic counting machine. She called the manager over who explained that is how they did it despite it might be quicker and easier doing it my way. Not a lot one can say to that.
