Gary is just a menace lurching from one mishap to another wallowing in self pity. Now he burgles poor Roy on the first Christmas since Hailey's death. Nothing short of dispicable and he wonders why Kal does not want his daughter to have anything to do with him -dah! Just GO Gary and take the rest of your exhausted family with you.

PS I dont mind proving I am not a robot but most of them are unreadable. People are going to give up trying to post at this rate!

I completely agree with Frosty on all counts. Gary....bye bye.
The robot thing takes at least 6 or 7 tries before I can decipher anything, and then it still won't work most of the time. it's too frustrating. The numbers were way better.

Of course David's first stop for stress release is a drunk-up at the Rovers. God forbid if he'd gone to have a nap, a walk, or a trip to the gym!

With all the snide comments from Owen and Katy on Christmas Day, I'm not surprised Gary much unbridled hate can one person endure and especially on the 'so called goodwill to all men' day! Even Anna sucking on a chocolate had to make sure it was ok with Owen before inviting HER OWN SON for Christmas Day! I know Gary's no angel but they all were truly horrible to him.
Re: Robot.....if you aren't fast enough your session expires and you have to re-prove you are not a Robot....very tiresome. Humbug.

I have always liked the Windass family...Izzy is my least favourite of their family...not a very good actress....

Sorry about the robot thing, we have no control over it as it's a Blogspot (Google) issue. You can however, register for a Google account and you will then just have to login and not go through the rigmarole of the robot thing. Wish I could help more but it's out of my control sadly.
