For those in the UK, it's time to wake up, or you'll miss it.

I wonder where I put my Druid kit.

Where do I put the poultice - HUMMMMMMMM. Perhaps that is not the best question to ask a smart-arse such as Geezer.

Jimmerny crickets JimBo,

Don't you folks down in Texarcania know nuthin?

See, them Druidic geezers could teach them Romins a thing or two. Them knew the best way to get rid of a nasty ol' carbuncle was to plaster a right big poultice on it, just as the Sun was rising through a bit of ol' Stonehinge.

That's why them Druids called it the Summer Poultice.

Sir, the last reference is beyond my ken. It is much less erudite than I expect of you as you seem to otherwise be a rational, fairly well educated human being but this, sir, is just a bit out of bounds.

Im am terribley sorry bit i do not have the foggist of what you are talking about, if one was to use, the mother tongue, wich, as you know, is the queens English, and not some bumpus, jumped up incomprinsible dialict, one would be able to make progress in comunication, and not just rabble on like the half wits i know you not to be. For presion this is in no matter a rebuke or, indeed, a retreomand, one just wished to make a non comittle point, to wit

duhhhhhh i wanned to wite summut

Obviously the Druid high priestess of the Southern Hemisphere. The Druids git around even more than the Beach Boys.

Her is actually meant to be HERE, blushingly. I must have had some Freudian slip on my mind, or not, as the case may be.

RD,

Is you imperclating that our Motown hero Stevie might be one o'them druidic geezers all dressed up in their funny hats and gowns? Seems a mite improbable to me.

Stevie is now looking like your compatriot. If he continues on that diet he's headed for "Muumuus R us".

Stevie lay down on the Glastonbury stage with this Keytar, doing a Jimmy Hendrix style move, and had a helluva a job getting back up.

An excellent set apart from the nauseating "I just called to say I love you",  [xx(], which I suppose he had to do.

Maybe he joined the Meat Packers Union?

I was at a James Taylor concert near Edinburgh a few years back and he greatly pleased the audience when he announced that he was going to "gie it laldy".
