Hi Alan,
I've been scratching my head, trying to figure out
what the image is... ;-)
Love the idea of "old cracker jokes"...yep, we do
that every year!
(Actually, I'm also scratching my head, trying to
get the connection with roadworks...it might
be a regional thing...)

At least you can scratch your head, I'd only get splinters!

Yes, roadworks are a regional thing, I think the Romans invented them for conquering Britain. ;-)

It's traditional in some parts of Britain to have major roadworks, or trenches dug up in roads, just before Christmas, so there is as much disruption and despoiling of the Christmas good cheer.

The roadwork signs gleefully state "Work commences 13th November and will continue for 12 weeks" just so Christmas shops can lose much needed revenue, especially with low sales during our extended heatwave etc... ;-)
