breakdown truck

Got something to say, but it's not classic related? Here's the place to discuss. Also includes the once ever-so-popular word association thread... (although we've had to start from scratch with it - sorry!)

Very nice, but there's a problem. I've looked at the spec and there's no mention of a year's suppl of toilet paper.

GHT, a man of your means must have at least one shower in his home, so repurpose lavatory paper that would - under normal circumstances - have served in the smallest room into the caravan, then take a combined number two / shower session when in residence at Château GHT. Simple!
:scared:

Rich, supplies of breakdown trucks seem to be drying up because some greedy feckers are buying the things in lots of four, just in case.. :|

What cracked me up in the Renault write up was "des cookies." DeGaulle would turn in his grave. He hated borrowing from another language, especially English, worse, American English. It's why you're stuck with the five syllable: 'radiographie.' DeGaulle just wouldn't tolerate x-ray.

Hmm, just as well he wasn't in the habit of breaking his bones in foreign countries then. What about "Le weekend?" Would de Gaulle not be grateful to the English language for that one? Think about it; he's leaving his favourite watering hole on a Friday afternoon after a busy day of being shot at, policy making and travelling about in DSs with missing wheels, then his colleague asks him what he intends to do between then and the Monday.. "I have no plans for the 48 hour work interval this week, Bruce," he would have said. All the while pondering on how to remove that spot of clumsiness from his beloved language.

Aye, Charlie boy, people in glass houses, etc. :P

Liking that little Renault truck, if the shiny dashboard is anything to judge by, it seems to have been well cared for. Imagine how good that could look though.. With the bed removed and replaced by a nice Sprite Major (it's a caravan :mrgreen: ) body of the same period. Oh yes, motorhome heaven.
