Surprise in the post from ML&S

Yesterday evening I received an email from Martin Lynch & Sons that they had despatched a package to me. I was a bit puzzled at first, as earlier in the week I had received my early birthday present I had ordered a day or so before, so I couldn't work out what the package would be, perhaps they had made a mistake?

Then I remembered, I had entered the ML&S guess the Caption competition on their Facebook page. A quick surf over there and I found I had won a Kenwood hand towel, which arrived promptly in this mornings post:

I certainly won't be using it on my face, it will be put on the wall in the soon to be refurbished shack.

If you want to keep up with the top deals and offers at ML&S, join in by liking their Facebook page, it is well worth keeping your eye on!

    Great towel for those times when you sat for hours and hours and hours trying to work that rare one.. and without accomplishing it, the station goes QRT. Remove towel from wall and dependent upon your frame of mind either cry in the towel (to keep the XYL from seeing you de-manificate) or scream into it (which may bring the XYL on the run – be advised!)

    vague attempt at humor now complete

    Instead of being a prize, Kenwood should pay you because your advertising for the company. Like hats or anything else with company logos.
