Thread Name: True things you couldn't make up.
Subject: RE: True things you couldn't make up.
My boss, on holiday from NZ in England, stopped on impulse in Coventry to look in a tropical fish shop, and got talking to another customer. The customer was my dad, the only occasion he ever went into such a shop. He was buying something for a present for me. He lived about 12 miles from the shop, too.

On names, my aunt went to school in Leicester with the Trump kids, Harry Will and Elsie May. So she said.
If it doesn't translate into American, trump is a slightly more polite term for fart, as well as the card term.
