The Cor Écossaise is also quite an instrument.

JimBob is very keen on wooly alegories. Consequently, he's sometimes quite overcome with emulsion.


But that only serves to generate revulsion.

Nonsense. It was the lead pipe.

Yes. But he was pie-eyed at the time.

I hear his name was Simon,  simply asking for a taste landed him with two freebies in the face.

I'm familiar with a slightly different version. It goeth thusly:

Simple Simon met a pieman
Gowing to the fair.
Said Simple Simon to the pieman,
"What have you got there?"

PIES YA MUG!

I'm sure this is, at the very least, politically incorrect. I only cite it as a reference for academic reasons.

As you all well know, I'm not one to "toot my own flute"


So Variola and Make it Lady were wrong after all!

The best thing is to see Geezer when he dresses up in his tights, tutu and toe shoes.


You've got a thing about tutus, don't you? Fess up now. We're all family here. There's no need to be embarrassed about it.


Go easy, Geezer, he didn't want to be out of step.

Then why does Pox wish me to cruise to Iceland with her? She asked ME!

Adoring women just love dirty old men. Get with it demo. Bald is beautiful. Some women love it.

Tis true I do want you to come with me  :) I get a discount if I take an OAP with me..... :P Plus I thought your geo knowledge might come in useful  explaining to me about the mud puddles that go 'floop'.
I would have to check your clothing before we went anywhere though...... some of your shirts are very dubious!
Anyway you are not that bald.... more sparsely furnished!

Here's a recent photo of JimBob and I in our plus-fours. I presume that's what you were looking for?

I've just put two coats of white paint on my door, I second that emulsion!


But first you must strip.



Demo, I'll be around with my blow torch.


Make it Lady, painting is a serious job! You must finish what you started!

And be sure to French Polish the knob very, very well. Other wise it is a failed ending.

Yes, and I learned from JimBob that "happy endings" are crucial to success.
