    Hi John W.
    When we lived in Whangarei we kept getting phone calls from this woman who asked for a booking, she thought it was the foot clinic, we told her it was a private number, but she kept ringing, I'm sorry to say i was rude to her one day, next thing her husband rang and I told him she was ringing a private number, ok he said . Next day the phone rings and she's on again, so I said I'll make an appointment for you for 10am tomorrow, she thanked me, we never had another phone call. I'd have loved to have been at the foot clinic at ten the next day.
    Cheers Des

    Why do people keep going back to the chiropidist?

    Simple, the corn man fixed the problem , the chiropidist works on the problem just enough not to cure so you have top go back.
    He has to make a living somehow.

    But if I recall there was once a member of the Royal family who had a thing about sucking toes.

    I remember the cornsucker coming aboard the Temple Lane,I thought Culcutta,but it may have been Bombay,in 1963.At least one of the crew used him and it seemed to work for him.The tool he used looked to me like a short cigarette holder!

    Oh yes, there were plenty of them on board, sucking away all day.
    Said that there was even a phantom one who went from bunk to bunk in the middle of the night.

    But how wonderful it may have been if there had been a piles sucker!!!!!
