    Funny you should mention this, just finished reading this again for the umpteeth time. So so funny. The start of the letter to the "United Kingdom Spoon Collectors Club" always has me in stiches!

    -Hello, come in. Would you like a cup of tea?

    -Yes please. Thank you.

    -Sugar?

    -Please. My, what a fine spoon.

    -I thank you. For I am a collector (of spoons).

    An everyday scene from within my home. No doubt yours too.

    Anybody who has the book will appreciate this

    Ha ha yes, the creature he found in his pond and wants identifying - and that strange contraption for traping birds (comes complete with disposal bags).

    I only have the book, but will definately be buying some more of his stuff. I believe there is a second timewasters letters?

    Yes, some extra added letters - not got that either - will add it to the list.
    Just going to finish reading 'Hard Drive' - [ Bill Gates / Microsoft Book ] then I'll get on with the other Timewaster books.....
