    Will you have a vending machine available,for crisps and nuts

    While waiting on my Nigerian Lottery winnings to be transferred, I had time to scroll down through all the replies to my original post. I haven't laughed so much since lockdown began. All I can say is, finding a crisp supplier might be tricky, but there's enough nuts on here to fill the machine twice over!.

    Now don't forget Tony...you were to send me details of the scheme. I'm waiting patiently to get this up and running. LOL

    I would think Tommy would have a much healthier bank balance than Tony LOL

    Nigerian lottery wins do not tend to be that good for the bank balance in reality. LOL

    Tony, why don't you come clean, and admit you are only trying to gather the funds to to go on a Nigerian training course, in order to improve your pension fund's.

    I mean there is no real harm in that is there ?.

    I have a half share in a lighthouse, if you are interested, great spot if you want a bit of peace and quite,it works well, you can use it yourself but the strange thing is most people donate their time to someone else,emoticon_img who they might be happier without for a few days or weeks depending on the weather.emoticon_img

    Apologies for the delay Ger. You'll never guess what's happened! Some careless office worker in the Nigerian Lottery office must have pressed the wrong button. Rather than transfer one million TO my account, they've accidentally taken all the money FROM my account. Not to worry, I've emailed them about the silly mistake, no doubt they'll sort it over the weekend. What a carry on...you have to laugh!

    Thanks for those comforting words. I'm sure they'll sort it promptly .... I mentioned that I was a MH Craic member. That should wake them up!

    That is sure to put the fear of God into them.emoticon_img

    I bet they will now ask you for a second account details so as they can refund you twice the amount.

    Not a problem Tony. I fully understand your issue but it will be sorted. Those nice chaps from the Nigerian Lottery fund will refund to your account without a doubt as they are completely and utterly trust worthy. I had a similar win three years ago and a similar mistake happened. Apparently my bank still will not accept the refund transfer. LOL

    I'm not sure mentioning that you're a Craic member will be of any help because they've had an awful lot of issues in Nigeria with Motorhomes overcrowding at the beaches.... apparently. LOL

    Ger I have a plan to make a few quid if we keep it to ourselves. we don't need Tony (He will be too busy spending his Naira)

    If we wait till someone with a big garden announces they are going away. Then we invite Tommy to a bonfire party (this will also help with my tire problem) . I also have some nuts left from Christmas to help temp him. whilst he's a sleep waiting for his copper to cool , gaffer tape his doors shut and nick his stash. emoticon_img.

    Daryl in the words of Hastings ( Adrian Dunbar) Jesus, Mary, Joseph and the wee Donkey....now that's a plan. I believe Norman is heading to Scotland so we could use the grounds of his estate and I'll throw in a few packs of Tayto Cheese and Onion. There just past sell by date, six months, but Tony won't notice. OPERATION TONY has begun.

    What? I turn my back for a few hours (a small problem regarding my Nigerian Lottery win apparently) only to find that there's dirty deeds going on behind my back. Operation Tony? Not on my watch matey! I've decided to launch a hostile takeover of the MH Craic operation. Once I have enough shares I'll swoop in and start running things MY way. From my new campsite in Nigeria. Sleep with one eye open lads.
