Massive massive important news - Digby - The rubber duck that we found in a hire car on The Great Ocean Road in Australia is back......and he now has a bow-tie.
Yeah that's right, I know you have all been waiting for some Digby news and with nothing much else going on over here in Winnipeg (apart from moving int our new house next week, but that's not really news is it!) we finally got Digby out of his hibernation (Rubber ducks suffer terribly from travel sickness and jet lag and so Digby has been sleeping it off in a cardboard box since May) and dressed him up, before sitting him proudly on the dashboard of the little yellow piss coloured fiesta that we call 'Our Car'....... He now watches over us, as we negotiate the crazy and crap drivers of old Winnipeg town...

Buffy and myself had a couple of nights out - One to The Fort Garry Hotel, where we met up with Jonathan the piano genius and a good mate - He was playing and singing there as he does sometimes and so we dressed up and popped along to the old art deco style bar there to watch him play - Thanks as normal to his quick thinking as he played 'Rule Brittania' on our entrance and then invited Buffy up to sing a couple of tunes - a lovely night out and always good fun!
|Singing and playing|
There was even a display of sheepdog trials - even though the sheep were tamer than a dog getting his belly tickled! Still a fun night!
|Sheep worrying!! Not!¬!|

1. The Cat Pillow.
Look at the explanation - Yep it simply states ' Its a cat Pillow'. Class and maximum effort!
2. The Futon.
OK, so someone bought a futon and then their dad bpught(sic) them a love seat (that's a 2 seater sofa to all the normal people out there) A pretty weird explanation, plus I want to see a photo. Try harder next time!
I was tempted to get this for the future, but decided I didn't want to buy a used potty, even if it has only been used by one child! Maybe I should take a look at the other baby ads!
4.The Green Iphone.
Not such an unusual advert - a typical apple user wanting the very latest phone.
No low ballers though, he will ignore anyone offering a low price, but will lower the price if negotiated....Eh? What? - KNOB.
So you bought these for your daughter but they don't work for what we were wanting....
So, what did you actually want them to do? As far as I know there isn't much else that Gymnastic bars are for......Did you want to use them to dry clothes? Maybe for use as a home security device or instead of a Frog potty........wtf!?!? Oh yeah, they also have a pommel horse.....KNOB 2!
Someone somewhere had a bad weekend. Maybe they woke up in bed with a stranger or drank 5 bottles of Vodka and took a dump in a frog potty while spinning around unwanted uneven bars - whatever happened they lost their faith and will now surely go to hell..... There were actually 3 Religious pictures for sale.... I hope they seek forgiveness!!
7. Wedding shower props.
I really feel for the next advertiser. Read the ad and you can imagine the effort and time spent creating 150 hand painted clothes pegs. Then the 150 lips and moustaches stuck onto sticks for some obscure game........But sadly, most were not even used and they expected more people. This one nearly made me cry! I was tempted to call up and try to buy just one peg or pair of lips...... They are so well made!!
8. He deserves better...
She is no longer needing it!!
Ok, so I understand that not everything in life works out. So what to do with an unwanted engagement ring. Don't do anything that takes too much effort - Instead just stick it on Kijiji for someone else to buy...
Maybe the worst part of this one is that someone else who wants to propose would actually look on Kijiji as somewhere to buy an engagement ring. How happy would be blushing bride be to find out that's where it came from....
No low ballers - you will be ignored - Just like her ex is no doubt!
You had a lucky escape mate!!
