Who Was That Shoplifting André Rieu?


HELP - I'm Surrounded by Two "Stud Muffins" !!
When Jann sent me this telling me what happened to her today I was laughing so hard! A 6 foot cut out of André is great, and many of us would love to have one ~ BUT getting caught with it at our age 'sneaking' to our car is another thing! ;-) Here is Jann's afternoon .........
When I rang my contacts to obtain a cardboard cutout for Ineke and Ruud, I didn't expect to end up with two of them ... armed with a blanket, I drove down to the store this afternoon to pick him up, the Manager and I covered him up to save an embarrassing walk back to the car ... but oh no ... there was a new security man who thought I was shoplifting!!! My quiet exit from the building came to a grinding halt.

Explanations were not enough for the over-zealous security officer who insisted on seeing what was hidden underneath the blanket. As he called for the Manager, several passer-by's had stopped to observe what had now become somewhat of a circus as I stood there flushing away like a menapausal woman ... the Manager arrived and laughingly gave the okay for me to take my leave with my bundle ... alas the embarrassment continued, he didn't want to fit in the car, removing his camouflage I finally managed to wedge him lengthways between the two front seats and drove home glaring at his face !!!

I am now safely in the sanctuary of my home ... however I now have another problem, I have the smaller stud muffin which I collected today, peering at me whilst on the keyboard and the 6½ foot stud muffin (thankfully delivered to my door), stored under the bed in readiness to go home to Holland ... I'm reaching for the valium !!! (Jann)

Jann, No death notices for Sue - please! She's not the only one who hasn't been able to resist posting a funny! One life-size cutout is under your bed - REALLY??? They'll probably have to buy him an airline ticket to get him back to Holland, I think! If security nabbed you at the store... I can only imagine the scene for Ineke at the airport! Carry on, Sue, well done! ~Chris T.

"Not Happy Jann" has been a very busy woman these past weeks. The laughs she has given me throughout our sometimes 'all nighters' on the Website's have been numerous.
And I have to say, this one was right up there as one of her best!
It was too good not to share. ;-)

"Very Happy Sue" :)
