I remember visiting my ex's nan several years ago, who kindly welcomed us with "I'd rather have queers in my house than thieves!" :hihi:

 

She liked a drink.

 

Bless - she probably thought she was paying you a compliment!

She also threatened to throw a toy that I kept whining about onto "The fire back"

I remember watching Tiny Tim on top of the pops, he was singing tiptoe through the tulips and my dad said "He needs hitting `round the back of the neck with a stocking full of Chit"

 

I know... I didint know what he was on about either.
