Old shop sticker wording

I am told by "one of those that are always right", that there is / was a pretty common window / door sticker in the UK that said something like:

Sometimes we open at 6am
Sometimes we are here til' late
At other times we are not here at all
etc

There were apparently about 6 lines of wording in all.

Anyone recall them, and more particularly what the missing lines are!

I don’t know of that one Alan, but I did see one a few years back that read;


Open Mon. to Sat. 9am to 6pm.
Wednesday afternoons a bit iffy. (hmm)

In the meantime...
Just make yourself a

sign...it should cover anything.

Many thanks Alan, Jill and Gazza.

"'er indoors" is still keen on finding the missing words to the one I quoted.

Jill - If you remember what the words were, I would be eternally grateful - I would even go so far as to promise that I won't ever comment about your new, new hairstyle / image

Cheers

Alan:
Open Monday thru Friday 9-5
Except when we are closed.
Daily lunch 11-1
And until 3 on Wednesdays
(Spaghetti Buffet)
You might catch us after 7 pm Tuesday
Unless we are at the Bowling Alley
Saturdays we are here by chance
It's a good chance we're at the bar.
Sunday we will be closed for Church
Unless we have a hangover.

I just made that up. I looked everywhere too,
but could not find the original.
So put THAT in yer pipe and smoke it!
And whatsa matter with my hair?
Love-JILL :wink:

At other times we are not here at all

and never is best of all...

Hiya Jill

Your hair looks great - pink or otherwise - believe me nobody who has as little hair as I have, would ever make any derogatory comments about someone else's barnet
:D

Thanks for the suggested wording btw, but it's not "quite" the original.

Also by the way, my pipe has been "filed" away for quite a while now, and I feel much better as a result.
(hot)

You don't happen to have seen a little electronic gadget near you? It was supposed to go to the other "Mars" but perhaps one of our European "Allies" built the navigation system
:D


Hiya Jenny

I have passed your suggestion on - I am awaiting for the "roar of approval"
(hot)
or otherwise
:cry:

Regards to all in the nicest spot in Oz

Alan...
Jenny's response is fairly similar to the one I saw.
And it is OK to tease me. I have 3 older brothers
& am quite used to it after 41 years. :lol:
I saw a weird vehicle when I was in Mars last week.
It was parked at Good Old Uncle Bob's.
Guess the owners had closed their shop for lunch.
