The name piglet pincher below reminded me of what I saw on the news today.About 30 miles away from us 470 pigs were stolen in broad daylight mid morning on a saturday out of a unit on a busy main road. it must have taken a big lorry to take them lot, I cant belive in this day and age people are still rustling. Its a rum do, nothings safe anymore.

I was not involved in the pig rustling shenanigans.

Hi Teresa, Ih'm Pleased to bid you welcome.
I never thought for a minute your post would be about pinching pigs. Now, a way back there when I was young, pinching was a way to pay a compliment to a pretty girl. Of course, that was before political correctness came into being. But, even then, I didn't know anyone that pinched a pig.........gfp

Teresa, did you say "lorry"? "Rum do"? Maybe you can tell us for sure what a Norton is in the song "Three Men Went A-Hunting".

Hi Les I guess you call a lorry a truck and 'rum do' well I dont really know how to explain that.I have difficulty sometimes working out what words mean on here and I still havnt worked out what lol means. As for Norton well I havnt ever heard of 'three men went a hunting' all I know is that Norton is a motorbike or could it be nothing?

Well, it's an old English song. I've heard it done by Jerry Garcia and Dave Grisman. There were a couple of threads over the past few days dealing with the subject but I see now that there are only 2 pages that haven't fallen off the back of the spreader and I'm too lazy to start over again.
BTW, glad to have you on board. Some of my ancestors came from Lincolnshire around 1639. Name was Dearborn. Others came from other parts of your Islands. Ever hear the name Smith?

welcome teresa, glad to hear from you. LOL means laugh out loud. Les and the others will have to bring you up to speed on the Norton thing.

Not meaning to sound rude, Smith is quite a common surname. Were not too far from linconshire mind you thats not too difficult on this small island. This Norton thing has got me curious I'll ask my mum and father in law one of them is sure to know and if they do I'll post it.

That's allright, I moved here myself. They are always reminding me I'm not originally "from here"

Yes, I do. These Arkies never let me forget it either, or is it the other way around?
