Kink free hosepipes

Two years ago I bought a "kink free hosepipe" from a local outlet. Up to yesterday, I had seven regular kinks and a couple of visiting kinks. Today, after struggling with this infernal beast, I decided to something about them. Out came my trusted garden knife, and I cut out all the kinks. Once I had calmed down, I realised I had a lot of hosepipes. A trip to homebase got me a length of copper pipe and a pocketfull of jubilee clips. By dinnertime I had a complete length of hose pipe with a few leaks. Mrs Pomp took great delight in telling me that the cost of the pipe, plus clips plus petrol plus man hurs, it would have been cheaper to by a new hosepipe. You just can't win. Cry

I love The Kinks.
In 1967 I worked on the South Bank and walked over Waterloo Bridge to meet my girlfriend.
Although not our real names I was Terry and she was Julie.
Ray Davies,I believe ,was a better song writer than Lennon/McCartney and caught the mood of the 60's better than anyone.
My heart skips a beat whenever I hear the opening chords of Waterloo Sunset.

Btw
In the original lyrics Terry was meant to be Terence Stamp and Julie was Julie Christie.
In reality it was me and my girlfriend!

That's interesting yanny,I'll look that up.
Ray Davies,I believe,was the greatest British songwriter of that period,far better than Lennon/McCartney.
I think his lyrics totally captured the mood of the 60's.
