A friend has just texted me to say that she has had a reminder from her cellphone service provider to top up. If she tops up by £30 she will get a free GB. She thought that was a bargain. I thought it was rather expensive. After all look at the specification:
One well used ((in most senses of the phrase) male.
Still alive (or I was when I wrote this but not looking at investing my capital on long term)
Medium height (according to the doctor's records about 1" shorter than 40 years ago when I joined the medical practice).
Bits missing as a result of cancer and bits added as the result of a heart attack.
Gammy knee shortly due for replacement.
Bald(ing) but good eyebrows and beard and what there is is grey to white.
Reasonable eyesight and hearing (and that's about the best bit of the description).
68 years on the clock.
Reasonably well educated (so far as I can remember but the memory has always been suspect).
Happy and optimistic disposition (when I'm not being a grump).
House trained and a passable cook.
