Tuesday Caption competition

Somehow, this was missed in my earlier post!

5. Flush the toilet three or four times. This provides a "power-wash" and rinse."

How To Clean Your Toilet

1. Put both lids of the toilet up and add 1/8 cup of pet shampoo to the water in the bowl. 2. Pick up the cat and soothe him while you carry him towards the bathroom. 3. In one smooth movement, put the cat in the toilet and close both lids. You may need to stand on the lid. 4. The cat will self agitate and make ample suds. Never mind the noises that come from the toilet, the cat is Actually enjoying this. 6. Have someone open the front door of your home. Be sure that there are no people between the bathroom and the front door. 7. Stand behind the toilet as far as you can, and quickly lift both lids. 8. The cat will rocket out of the toilet, streak through the bathroom, and run outside where he will dry himself off. 9. Both the commode and the cat will be sparkling clean. Sincerely, The Dog

BBC4 tonight at 21.00

For those who can get BBC4 - there is programme on at 21:00 about the British Army on the Rhine - the guy did contact TWA and picked our brains and hopefully there is some mention of PRS but it is a general  documentary - his brief was 

 The film will concentrate on the lives of the men and women who served in Germany in the 1950’s, 60’s and 70’s. We want to get a sense of what it was like to live and work in Germany and the bases during this period. What was the food like? How well did people get along with the locals? How good were the local schools? As well as the more serious matter of being at the front line of the Cold War.

 But sure we will find it interesting....
