I confess to not being a people person, and not caring who likes it or approves.
I confess to only wanting to correspond through email, and hate the phone. My motto is If back door guests are best, email friends are even better!!
I confess to having no confidence in myself, and thinking people don't like me.
I confess that I LOVE living alone, people think I get lonely, but I don't, I just get bored.
I confess to having a freezer full of Lean Cuisine and Healthy Choice meals, and never eating them.

I confess to being the one who came home early one Saturday, put the kettle on the Aga, ( a cooker that permanently on) and went to the fridge to get the milk. As
I opened the fridge door so there was a terrible smell. I thought that something was very off but then realised that one of the dogs had had a very runny accident
Nt and I had trodden in it.
I shut the fridge and hopped around the table to go outside to remove my shoe, trying not to gag and hopped into another pile, splattering it all over the place.
Outside I went to the garden hose and washed all off my shoes, got in the car and returned home later than usual.
I was greeted by mother saying," one of the dogs has the runs. Your father came in and obviously trod in it. What's more, he put the kettle on and it had boiled dry."
I never owned up to that one!

I confess that tickles my fancy
You can drive me when its my turn and the songs you play loud are:
Lord its had to be humble,
My ding a ling Chuck Berry.
And by an Australian singer, Johny farnham Touch of paradise.
And to finish it off, to my wife and kids. Willie Nelsons. Maybe I never told you.

What a way to go, out in style and different. And if any one gets up at the service to say what a great guy he was, someone please, Foxhunter you could do this. Stand up and put them right.

Not me but my late Father who was a Pall Bearer until he was in his 80s.

It had snowed, a lot of snow, and the town was cut off. I had a swab Land Rover that had been an army vehicle so was very basic. Three seats in the front, only metal benches in the back and a canvas roof cover. That LR was not the most comfortable but it would go most places - except out of town in 6 feet drifts of snow so I was walking to work to do the horses.

The Isle of Wight is a high retirement area and so there are a lot of funerals. One elderly lady died and Dad, who drove nothing other than Mum up the wall, asked if the Undertaker could use the LR to collect her. I agreed and told him that I would leave it in high 4 wheel drive but before he went up the very steep narrow wouldn't directly off the sea front, to the Chaple of Rest, to stop, put it in low range before attempting the hill.
They collected the deceased lady and put her in a travel coffin. Headed off to the Chaple.. The Undertaker forgot about the low range. The hill was a solid sheet of ice where children had been tobogganing down it.
The LR started to slip so was stopped with a jerk, Dad, sat in the back holding the coffin couldn't maintain a hold. Both he and the coffin slipped out the back. Dad managed to stop himself but the coffin went down the ski run landing on the beach. Dad remarked that it was a good job it wasn't high tide!
