Runnybeak, in my army days the girls south of Hull had stockings you painted on quite a sight when you had to walk to the dance in the rain. I repaired the odd seam for them with eye liner before we ventured on the dance floor. the question being where did they hide the meat cleavers? the mind boggles.

Yes David all part of our dastardly plan to keep our beautiful rolling hills dales and coastlines hidden from the southern despoilers (any one south of Hull) venture ye not across the Ouse. We blue painted lot wearing winter plaid  will smite thee with our hidden cudgels and that is only the girls.

Peter was on it takes two tonight so that was half an hour wasted.

A giant Hogweed in a pot decorated to look like a Christmas tree.


PS sending Fairy Girl a new mower with a snow plough on the front and Lily a book, "How to Dance by Jeremy Vine" all the rage this year. Myself a single malt, pair of slippers and a small Christmas pudding with custard.

DAVID, wash your mouth out, Yorkshire???? I am a Durham Lad through and through so it is the Durham lasses need watch out, the trouble being, like the sheep you have to catch them first.

David, after 60 years of wonderful marriage she never really left, I am sure she is around making sure I do not run off to Gretna with some nubile Blonde.

Lily, you know I would forgive you anything, even not liking Katie. I see the dance the persona is on the periphery of my sight. But "hey" we all have opinions and are better for it.

Good-night, Frank.

David, melt in your mouth pork today with break your teeth crackling, I love it.

Hip Hip and Hip again hooray, Motor mouth has gone.

OLGA happens to be OLA, it was going to be her last year in any case I think James must have influenced her, not sure she was not right about last week being a fix we never get to see the public vote so how do we know?

David technically Jay did the better Tango, I was with Len last night, there are rules and one being there will be no lifts in traditional dances and that was not only a  lift but Anita got carried half way across the floor, what was the point of being chucked through Greb's legs it left me cold.

My list last night, Helen, Georgia and Jay. I liked Katie although there were a couple of foot faults but Anton and Katie were robbed in the Quickstep watching the foot work Anton did the perfect dance yet because it was so good the judges failed to notice being too busy watching Helen and Giovanni pausing for effect.. i still would not call it, the GBP will decide in their usual quirky way. most not having danced other than around their handbags to three chord wonder bands, yes Len me too, I lose patience with some of the rule breakers says he who broke every rule in the book in his time.

David, know the problem, my next pooter is an Apple I trained on them at pooter school and regret going for cheaper options. My Apple i-pad is great though will not do everything I want to do so after Christmas--!!!

This is the first year of not being sure who would be tops I have the same four as you though who will make it on the night? I would not put a bet on it.
