I used to go out with a bloke who put me on a pedestal - now I'm wondering if it was because he didn't have the means to finish me off...........

 ... Ron Wheeler said that when Michael Harris started in the Isle of Wight he had no means to finish the paperweights properly, so put them on a pedestal!!!
Errr, so how did he finish the pedestals? By adding another pedestal, and so on, etc. etc. ????

Perhaps he meant polishing equipment?

  Yes Probably Sue, I can't recall the exact wording he used, I was just paraphrasing him. Bit difficult to remember everything after the 3 brain ops I've had!!
