Lippy’s bathroom is nearly complete and whilst planning to wait until it was finished before using it, Chris’ football injury means an early bath.
Grumpy has found a list of bridal customs including why fathers walk brides down the aisle. Somehow Grumpy manages to compare bridesmaid’s dresses and The Italian Job film, albeit the second one.

Could rotating black eyed peas as a crop reduce the amount of fertiliser used. Queue some poor jokes by both Lippy and Grumpy.

It turns out that when you unsubscribe from an email list this is actioned by a donkey called Kevin.
