Just been laughing at Vicar of Dibley Episode 1. What an absolute joy that series was and still is. An antidote to dismal days. New epsiodes to come too.

first christmas after we were married we had meals at both my grandparents and our parents houses, 4 in all, in 2 days...

...never did it again!

Now it's a meal on Christmas day and a running buffet for the rest of th days the kids are home.

But this year...

Is that so they don't have time to pick things off as you shoot past?

50 years ago I worked backstage with the local operatic society who regularly hired the town theater for a week at a time. The Panto one year involved a real running buffet with a huge cake on a table with castors. Someone was inside the cake and was able to make the table shoot across the stage whenever anybody tried to grab food from it. A new person, one evening, forgot to take account of the rake of the stage floor and he shot off straight for the orchestra pit. The audience loved it and thankfully the party goers on stage were able to catch it in the nick of time. Frightened the pants off everyone, including the full orchestra in the pit !

(That was the Ritz in Nuneaton, if anyone remembers it - although it was a fully equipped provincial theater modeled on the London Palladium it was mainly used as an ABC cinema and latterly as a bingo hall).

My son just bought the farm, subject to survey. Won't move in until next spring though.

No this is the youngest son. Horsey son, Land Rover nut, works in IT in Den Haag son.
His partner is an equine vet and needs to live within 15 minutes of her practice from January, and they need a place to stable their horse. The place they have just signed for has lots of stabling so they are thinking of a sideline in livery stables or horsey holidays.
It is long way from Den Haag though so it is a good job he will continue to work from home even after Covid.
They been renting a really small house in the centre of a small city until now so it will be a huge change for them.

Sailor son is the oldest, and TV sound son with the grandsons is the middlest.

Tiers for souvenirs are all you've left me...

Anyone remember it?

OMG - don't remind me!

As a kid I was dragged to many a performance of Doddy and this was one of his bread and butter belters

Might explain my sense of humour though

Ah, Doddy, they locked the doors when he went on stage so you couldn't escape!

Saw him in Bradford a year or so before his demise, cracking show...

...and locked doors!

My Mum was a bit snobbish about Ken Dodd, too much of the tickling sticks and diddymen for her taste: until we played her a video "An audience with Ken Dodd" and she has never laughed so much in her life!
