Knob has pulled out of the deal, and I'm off to Scotland on Friday so no time to get another ad/sale sorted until I get back in three weeks. Pissed off but it's worth more than £7k so might work out for the best in the end, still annoyed by the smug email I got:mad:.

Er, so the £7000 is no longer in my pocket:unsure:

Oh, missed that.  Sorry to hear it.  I can sympathise, had it happen to me once.  Guy phoned me, asked me would I not sell it until he could see it. 'I want it ' he said.  He never turned up., never heard from him again.

On the verge of losing another friend to cancer, admitted to a hospice with the tumour slowly closing off the wind pipe; steroids temporarily putting off the inevitable horrific traumatic end. 

Nobody would put a dog through that agony, they'd be gently put to sleep. I see no argument whatsoever (religious zealotry aside) against euthanasia; why extend someone's life for a few days/weeks so they can suffer for a while and then die in agony? Completely insane.

Sorry to hear that, Mike. 100% with you on euthanasia

Spot on. The sooner assisted dying is legalised the better.

It is the right word Matt, alternatives were far worse.

 Never a word that springs to mind in these situations. Grateful or relief, but that’s not important now.
