How many Grandads do we have and are they happy to be asked things? Step forward lads!

Well done Magsie, it will be great to get Ask a Grandad off the ground! I'm aware of 2 grandads on here.....could be more.

glassortwo Mon 23-May-11 16:57:04

Roll up all you Grandads grin

Typical, we build a topic for them and then they all shy away! grin

Notsogrand Mon 23-May-11 17:05:03

I've got a list of questions already!
Well, a couple. smile

glassortwo Mon 23-May-11 17:16:53

Think they have gone all shy grin

Notsogrand Mon 23-May-11 17:20:00

Probably all sharpening their chisels and checking their Screwfix catalogues

Or they may be having an afternoon lie down. I just got up from mine! grin

glassortwo Mon 23-May-11 17:25:03

How long will we have to bump this before we find one!!!!

Notsogrand Mon 23-May-11 17:33:19

PoppaRob' is in Australia.......so he'll be around later I guess.
tjspompa is in Yorkshire.....so probably having his tea? grin

glassortwo Mon 23-May-11 17:39:12

There is a Michael too.
Hope his tea is Yorkshire. grin

glassortwo Mon 23-May-11 17:49:42

Trickymickey,
and I think a Phil?

Magsie Mon 23-May-11 17:54:02

We'll wait for ages then three will come along at once (or is that buses?)

Notsogrand Mon 23-May-11 18:00:35

Maybe we need to reassure them....it might be a bit daunting to think a forum full of old ladies mature women are waiting to pounce with DIY questions.

I was thinking it would be more of an information exchange, along the lines of I don't know, do you? So no pressure chaps. smile

Notsogrand Mon 23-May-11 18:01:18

Splutter at buses! grin

nanafrancis Mon 23-May-11 18:18:27

Do I have to tell my DH about this site?

Notsogrand Mon 23-May-11 18:45:49

Only tell him nanafrancis if all the DIY jobs you need doing at home are up to date. smile

nanafrancis Mon 23-May-11 21:00:18

Quicker to do it myself, notsogrand! wink

Notsogrand Mon 23-May-11 21:11:12

That rings a bell nanafrancis!
smile

glassortwo Mon 23-May-11 21:43:26

Has there been any buses yet. grin

Notsogrand Mon 23-May-11 21:52:41

No sign at all. Perhaps they've all had an attack of the shys. smile

Should we try bribery?

Pint of beer?

Cup of tea and a big chunk of bread pudding?

glassortwo Mon 23-May-11 22:01:46

Try a piece of cake.

Magsie Mon 23-May-11 22:55:54

Or a wine for the first one to appear!

glassortwo Mon 23-May-11 23:00:40

They cant be watching football.

Magsie Tue 24-May-11 14:08:54

Are they all in their sheds? confused

PoppaRob Tue 24-May-11 14:26:37

G'day! :-)

PoppaRob reporting for duty! I've just come in from my workshop, finished a couple of instruments and I'll be popping them onto eBay, then I'll spend some time on Gransnet and Mumsnet. It's become an addiction... dammit! ;-)
