Default I know pathetic, but had to ask

My wife, bless her little cottons, has asked to to try and find where we can buy a Henry Hoover from.

As some of you may know I am in Oman, so preferably a location here if anybody knows would be great, but if we have to ship across from UAE, oh well never mind, it will keep her happy.

Any help you could offer me, would certainly make my day by the pool tomorrow a lot less stressful on my ears

JR I think the quarantine period might be a bit stressful for a Henry

it was a nice broom.

it had a blue handle and a yellow head

Back to the serious issue though, we have emplyed a maid (part-time, so the wife and I clean the rest of the time) and with two young children who think creating mess is a past-time, we want to make everybody's life a lot easier, and the other half says that Henry is best

p.s. I am not diabolical in disguise

Guessed that you are not Diabo in disguise..after all as a successful businessman he wouldn't need to know where to purchase a beloved Henry

Sorry I can't help you ...But hey nice broom ..you got class

it was a choice between red and yellow, so yellow was the obvious choice.

red is just a wrong colour, wrong i tell you
