I was reading berty's post about his THR called NED and this reminded me that i called my crutch Ernie and wonder if anyone else gave strange things names and why?

I called it Ernie cos it the fastest crutch in the west ( i am showing my age now- for those not old enough it was a song by benny hill called Ernie who was the fastest milkman in the west)

I wondered why berty called his hip replacement NED?

Anyone else got any good ones.

    Hi Tracey,

    Hi Tracy

    You are not odd - l think it makes it less upsetting needing these things in our lives and anyway it's funny when the names are apt.

    I know Hileena calls her scooter the 'paddymobile' (hope she doesn't mind me saying :???: )

    ERNIE is a good one too :wink:

    Hi Tracy

    Interesting point and yes am sure others have given things names, but maybe some can't be printed here eh! :lol: I will watch this one though.
    take care
    Chris ( who is old enough to remember Benny Hill, so un pc these days but very funny :grin: )

    What about 'Go-Go le Bruce' (mobility scooter with Scottish flag on it)?
