Default A caravanning question for the Rev Parsnip

Greetings, I trust that your own Christmas services were well attended - and
that the offerings were suitably generous. (I usually give the St Stephen's
congregation a simple choice - a non-coin freewill offering, or a two hour
sermon based on Deuteronomy...it usually works wonders for increasing the
take...)

Anyway, to the point.

As you will (doubtless) be aware, St Paul was, in addition to his work in
the Ministry, a tent maker by trade.

What do you think he would have made of today's caravan awnings?

Would he, do you suppose, be a traditionalist and prefer something made in
cotton canvas? - or would he embrace technology, and revel in the easy care
acrylic/polyester fabrics now available?

Then, there is the question of framework - would a man like St Paul endorse
the lightweight fibreglass, IXL type, poles? - or insist upon the proven
strength and durability of zinc plated steel?

Groundsheets, also, must be considered - would our brother have chosen the
open weave type (thus protecting the grass), or would he purchase the
cheaper 'solid' type of plastic sheeting, and give the money saved to the
poor?

And, let us not forget the Fiamma 'roll out' awnings. Do you think that a
man like St Paul (who was a great traveller) would forgo the comfort offered
by a traditional awning, in favour of the ease and speed afforded by on of
these 'quick assembly' canopies.

Do you, in fact, think that St Paul would bother with an awning of any
type? - or, even, a caravan? Would he just pay for bed and breakfast on his
missionary journeys, and leave the roads of the middle east uncluttered?

I've thought about these things a good deal lately.........

LOL Phil, I actually enjoyed that 1 (for a change)
Do not expect a reply of any consequence from the rev parsnip,
he is obviously a trainee in the art of preaching/caravanning/anything.

It's good to see that you have finally mastered the art of reading more than
one paragraph, Ray - are you now ready for some rather more substantial
works?.......

Hope that Mrs Ray is well, and that the pets are not now preventing you from
driving the Camper around this splendidly multi-cultural island that we
inhabit.

O no, 1 para is more than enough. All these extended posts are a no no (as
you know know)

Hope that Mrs Ray is well

She is fine thank you, well ok, that depends on from which standpoint you
view
and that the pets are not now preventing you from
driving the Camper around this splendidly multi-cultural island that we
inhabit.

I am afraid that they are the mommy pooch and 5 little buggers are a
BIIIIIIIIIG problem
The van stands outside, alone, forlorn, probably not startable.

Snip

it looks as though you've decided to come back in this manifestation
again instead of your other shapes.

Whoever you are, Rev Stapleton S Love, Rev Peter Parsnip, Phil Kyle, M H
Greaves, mhlife, Avondaleman, M. Hesselgreaves, Mark Hesselgraves or
whoever you seek to be at the time, be gone and depart from us.

This is your usual style - writing a troll and then replying to it in
one or other of your guises to keep it going.

___________

I've no idea - but he was a white heterosexual married Christian
entleman - and, as such, would have been warmly welcomed into the St
Stephen's Caravan Fellowship.

Our Caravan Fellowship organises meets throughout the summer - usually held
on glebe fields or in churchyards belonging to sympathetic congregations.
Dogs are permitted but MUST be kept on leads at ALL times (particularly
after the highly embarrassing incident in July last year - when an
unsupervised Jack Russell was spotted scampering around the graveyard of St
James-The-Martyr, at the Tewksbury meet, with a collar bone belonging to one
Edward Dunce, who passed from this life in 1907!)

Those wishing to join our Fellowship are asked to write, in the first
instance, to:

The Secretary
St Stephens Caravanning Fellowship
The Rectory
Much Sodding-in-the-Marsh
Great Sodding
Gloucestershire
GY7 4TH

Including a copy of the applicant's Marriage Certificate, Declaration Of
Ethnicity, and a cheque/postal order made out to 'SSCF' in the sum of
50.00 (note, cheques will be returned if the application is unsuccessful)

Like say John Bradbury and Al Stevenson for example.
