A funny thing happened on my run this morning

a rather disturbing offer

So there I was, jogging along a frosty country lane mostly frequented by dog walkers on account of the fact that it ends in a footbridge and is largely free of traffic, when I was met by a man in a van, coming towards me. The cheerful agricultural type who was driving stopped his van and asked me how far I'd gone. I shouted cheerily back that I'd only done 2 miles and had 12 more to go. He, by return, asked me if I was cold, because if I was, I could come in his van to warm up. I laughingly declined saying that I was warm enough, and jogged off, thinking how kind these country folk are. The further I ran, though, the more I thought how strange the offer was. Of course, he could've been genuinely concerned for my health. On the other hand, he could have taken a shine to the figure that I cut in my running tights. Thankfully (hopefully) I'll never know.

Though I do like a man in lycra myself.

Ooooh err mrs - I too was running along a frosty country lane mostly frequented by dog walkers and no one propositioned me - I live in hope On a serious note though as a girlie if someone had I'd have been terrified and run faster than I ever have in my life!

Either 1) A kind individual or 2) a future photo fit on crime watch

I'm wondering what an 'agricultural type' is 'cos usually we're in  4x4s or tractors.  Vans aren't much use on farms ....

D was in the middle of rather a long drive home when he chose to pull into a transport cafe for a coffe and smoke.

He took his coffee outside so that he could have his smoke when another car pulled into the transport cafe.

The driver started chatting to D - asking him what he was doing, D replied that he was just stretching his legs and was proposirtioned by the other chap along the lines of asking him which way he wanted to stretch his legs.

As long as a polite refusal is an option.......

TP - maybe the vans are just used for agricultural type abductions
Too visible in a 4x4 and they can jump off a tractor

Possiblt xine ... there is a lot of diversification in farming now, kidnapping is obviously the next step from fishing lakes and holiday cottages.

Just sounds like an ordinary non sinister proposition to me.....
