Can someone tell me why oh why do they all have fluorescent bibs and hard hats on?
Before someone says health and safety there's nothing above them but clear blue skies.
Follow the leader or what?
Well done Steven for not being a sheep!

I think Bruce if you look again you will see that Steven is indeed "a sheep" only a rather overweight one as his "bib" is unable to close, backed by the fact that his Council tie appears to be too tight!

You'll be saying next his head's too big to get inside the hard hat. Shame on you!

[I'm letting this anonymous comment through as it is slagging me off rather than anybody else, and because the sun is shining. However, there are a few anonymous comments that I'm not sure about coming through just now that I'm stopping. So in general, assume that anonymous comments will get the chop. Especially if they slag off me!- Steven]

I'll come clean and admit the comment about the hard hat was mine.

There was more to my last comment than that, Steven! But no matter. Although the author of a few anonymous comments, I would be delighted to see them banned from this site. (The temptation is just too strong.)
