The Cor ╔cossaise is also quite an instrument.
There ain'ta no sanity clause, and there ain'ta no centrifugal force Šther.

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


But that only serves to generate revulsion.

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.

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.

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.

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

Excellent, JimBob!

But not so fast. You're a-l-m-o-s-t there, so be patient.

Now, JB, as I so clearly wrote, "less sparsely" means.......?
