Many thanks to all of you yesterday who wrote in with suggestions as to what the "3000" story was about.
Sadly, I am still at a loss as to what I was going to write about.
Could it be senility kicking in?
Anyhoo, moving on, I read that we live in the age of miracles where limbs grow back as if by magic.
That at least is the view of Nanny's chums from Nottinghampshire County Council, as Lance Corporal Johno Lee has discovered to his cost.
Lance Corporal Lee lost one of his legs in Afghanistan in 2008, trying bravely on the instructions of our "beloved" government to bring a country still in the Middle Ages into the 21st century.
For reasons best known to the council they have denied him a disabled parking badge three times, as such he has clocked up £800 in fines for parking in disabled bays in his home town of Newark.
Seemingly the council are of the view that Lane Corporal Lee is "young", and "may get better".
Yes, they really did say that!
I know the Pope is coming and all that, but even his presence will not gestate the regrowing of a limb.
Now the media are crawling all over the case the council's Service Director, Paul McKay, said:
"We are looking into the matter and have arranged for a member of staff to meet Mr Lee to review the situation. We will urgently assess whether he meets the criteria for a disabled parking badge as laid down by the Department of Transport."
Call me simple, but either he has two legs or he doesn't?
