Quote: It is a very good quality in a man to own a trout stream".
George Elliot, (1871) Middlemarch)
Almost every day I get emails telling me that I've suddenly become a very rich man.
One of the more inventive one's:
"You have been bequeathed £11,000,000 by the late, John Paul Getty Jr. in a codicil to his will."
The email is about an A4 page long. Actually says he left me £11, 300,007, Great British Pounds (GBP's). (Great British Pounds?) The £7 (GBP's) really impressed me.
The email goes on to say that I should not be surprised by this, as Mr Getty obviously met met on his travels around the world. (As if I would not remember).
Well I don't suppose that this should surprise me too much, as the late Mr Getty and I moved in the same very rich, (super rich circles), my millions of cents obviously impressed him enough.
£11,300,007, (Great British Pounds) would make me a very rich man in Africa! Just imagine the fly fishing rods, etc.
I could buy my own trout stream, (in South Africa, several hundred kilometres of trout stream for £11,300,007 GBP's)
Ah, if only.
