This underwear was!! Moral>: Do not leave your washing out overnight? Had she only gone out to bring it in on the 4th??

I am pleased to say that the police have now caught the thief and recovered the stolen items. He is now under-a-vest :-)

It appears that it is, read the story again it quite clearly states £175.00. That's one expensive beaver as Bart Simpson would say.

For Pink Floyd Fans

Arnold Layne had a strange hobby
Collecting clothes
Moonshine washing line
They suit him fine
On the wall hung a tall mirror
Distorted view, see through baby blue
Oh, Arnold Layne
It's not the same, takes two to know
Two to know, two to know
Why can't you see?
Arnold Layne, Arnold Layne, Arnold Layne, Arnold Layne

Now he's caught - a nasty sort of person
They gave him time
Doors bang - chain gang - he hates it
Oh, Arnold Layne
It's not the same, takes two to know
Two to know, two to know
Why can't you see?
Arnold Layne, Arnold Layne, Arnold Layne, Arnold Layne

Don't do it again
