Having tried to post on another thread I discover that I'm apparently back in infrequent poster purgatory, so this post may vanish beneath the waves as I desperately row my dinghy in the wake if the good ship TRBTPST, ex-TRABB+.

Despite that:
My sympathy to Mr. Exascot.

It's always been TRRBATPSOIT AFAIK. The TRABB nick was just a corruption of the first few letters in the abbreviation.

Strongs, Mr Ascot.

Morning to all.
A mix of sun and cloud this morning. Windy and relatively mild but the rains will be upon us later.
Most importantly the moon is waxing gibbous.

Sincere condolences Exascot.
Losing your father is bad enough but being thousands of miles away and knowing it is happening must make it even worse.

The Sound of Music was released 50 years ago this month.
That makes me feel rather old.

Greetings Gentlefolk,

Same as *Ibbie* - no Wind.



To me it's strange some are arthriticky, with me it's ligaments, hands, elbow and ankles. No Arthriticky at all.

Was playing tree and chainsaw yesterday - sore today, see if some more of the same will help later.

I wish it had stayed unreleased handsfree.

IMO the worst musical film and score ever writ.

Your point about Exascot being many miles away when his father died, brings the event of my father's death, thirty years ago, back into memory. I was in the then southern part of Yugoslavia close to the Albanian border. The message of his death found me some two days after the event and my journey back to the UK including planning and travel a further week.

Sunday is about to end here in the West of Oz, (well about 6.75 hours to go)one has been informed by erindoors that wee will be having pizza for dinner tonight, my shout.

As tomorrow is a public holiday, one may wash the pizza down with a beer or two..

Does this mean that I accept the existence of an afterlife?
Not all G-CTPN.

Your reaction is one of the ways in which humanists remember the departed.

Exascot
The announcement the HRH is to leave the forces and look for projects in Africa had me thinking.

Is house sitting for you a project he may consider?

One has discovered something for which the Girl goes a little gaga. Cow hooves with a smear of peanut butter in the pointy bit. Keeps her happily chewing and licking away for hours.

KitKats follow Waggonwheels and Curly Wurlies

Much furore over the Sunday morning coffee - Her KitKat Chunky has been shrunk (from 48gm to 40gm).


Its brave man who reduces her chocolate ration by 16% !

So I take it that you weren't in the audience for the revival of The Sound of Music in the 1990s at the Apollo Victoria Theatre in London (alongside Victoria Station), where despite her mature years, the key role of the young Maria was played by none other than ............ Petula Clark!

Went to see Petula when she was a mere 75 (a bit reluctantly, but Mrs TTN is a fan). Totally amazed - she belted them out for two hours without a support act. Brilliant show.

And she sang Downtown

(I like The Sound of Music too )

Probably true but fast forward those 50 years and I think youŽll find some stiff competition for that description.

Ummmm ... has Exascot actually lost his dad? I thought his last post said he was expecting bad news ... did I miss something?

Does anyone know if the story is true that the Zimbabwean idiot, Mugabe had a million dollar birthday bash ... which involved slaughtering elephants for the feast? That's just obscene.

Morning all, bright and sunny.

I'm glad you asked that question BD, I was in the same dilemma.

I am thinking along the same lines as Bluey, are we being a little premature regarding Exascots Dad?


Good to know that Exascot managed to bonk The Vicar of Dibley, it was only a matter of time!
