    Hey, Hey, Hey, Cappers!

    I have two things to show you, I’ll cut straight to it.

    A rather lovely…… Well, decent photo of me I took yesterday. 15 Likes on this comment by the time I comment again this evening and I’ll set it as my avatar on GC today:

    A text of where my blood donation has gone. I’ll let Eldo do his “research” on where that hospital is:

    Oh and Michael G and I have arranged that I call him next Tuesday, 4:30pm his time. No doubt it’ll be nothing but flirt, flirt, flirt! I can’t wait to speak to him.

    See you later. Get “Liking” but no need to make me Featured…

    How about just living the life of Andy? Isn’t that good enough for you?

    @Number Three Today’s strip IS funny , our HERO Mr Andrew Capp is forthright in his request for a loan ,but who the hey was Riley who lived a good life? to get a loan from a bank you have to prove you don’t actually need it :o) my avatar is of a cat stating that she ignores her “owner’s” call like Bella ignores me but makes a fuss over her mummy , Connie , how was your day? and Hendrix has crossed the rainbow bridge to doggie heaven and beviek has got new mutt ,we keep in touch but I can’t give you her E-mail adress unless she tells me to, our day should be busy but calm I hope , today in the Roman Catholic Religion it’s ASH Wednesday and when I was an Altar boy I used to have fun putting ashes on people’s heads ,otherwise we are both in a good mood , keep safe and thanks for caring young Lady

    You have about as much chance of getting a bank loan as Flo has of seeing you get a job!

    Must be a bank that hasn’t yet heard Andy’s reputation.

    Maybe he was referring to “Riley ace of spies” as depicted by Sam Neill in a very good British series.

    @Linguist As you may know , today March 31 is a National Holiday in Malta “Jum Il-Helsien” to commemorate the day when the Brits humoured our Gov of the day and sent a Destroyer to leave Grand Harbour , a sailor lower the Union Jack and a Maltese soldier raise our flag 10 years after the brits wanted to leave ,a non event

    Banks will never give Andy a loan, and would be most happy to leave him alone!

    Loan Manager: “And we’re pretty insistent that the loan be repaid, that it’s called ‘loan’.” Andy: “I knew there was a catch.”

    Any suggestions as to what Brudder Capp would use for collateral?

    A guy I grew up with went into the banking business. At one point he was in charge of supervising loans for all the bank’s branch offices. He discovered that the formula that they were using for their loan applications ( this was in the days before computers ) was skewed and many good potential borrowers were being turned down, while many poor risks were getting approved.

    He ran an application on himself and would have been turned down for a loan because his credit report showed that he still owed his college bookstore $46 for textbooks from his Senior year. Here he was a Vice-President of a large bank and couldn’t qualify for a loan in his own bank!

    ( He swore he’d paid the bookstore! )

    @Afficionado

    So sad to hear about Hendrix. Dogs just don’t live long enough. They deserve to live longer than some humans.

    I wasn’t wanting Beviek’s email address. But if she would like me to have it, you can private message me it on Facebook. I don’t mind.

    We have a few cats in our street. Only 1 dog though. A Shih-Tzu.

    Stay safe, stay well and stay happy, pal. I’m getting KFC tonight. Drool Drool Drool.

    What a revoltin’ development! (I heard that all the time as a kid when I was watching Looney Tunes. Didn’t find out about the show until later.)

    Also most banks require some kind of income before they loan people money.
