Today's joke. Theres this member jvrt who is a member


of his local Allotment Association. The Secretary’ name is Di.
Seems she sent him an email asking him to put his seed potato order in by this weekend, as there is a shortage.
He got in a muddle somehow with his laptop and other electronics, and sent his potato order to me calling me Di.
I couldnt fathom it out. Didnt know these addresses.
Then a second email arrived, explaining the confusion.
I didnt know there is a shortage of seed potatoes.
De-frosted my car windows and went over to my supplier this morning. Yes, they confirmed its true.
They have plenty at the moment, but when they are gone it will be very difficult to get anymore.
Bought 4 kilos.
Came home and contacted everyone on my ‘The Allotmenteer’ database to tell them.
So jvrt did us all a good turn, as I wouldnt have braved the cold to go over there until the end of February !

Its easy to get confused by technology, you must have been very confused, but as you say a happy accident!

You have to be so careful when sending emails. One false click and you can't do anything about it.
I'm glad you got your seed potatoed Diane. I didn't know there was a shortage. I'd better get mine soon then !
