Posh frocks tomorrow

Allan

I probably wont do an entry tomorrow,Jean and Pete,Maurice and I are off to Northampton,to our cousin Allan's seventieth birthday party ,really cant believe he's seventy ,he is no different now to the boy cousin he was in our teen years when he was always teasing me and my sister Jean ......

 Maurice is home after his nights work ,they have had multi problems at work which ,hopefully he has now resolved ,but he has been trying to sleep,and cant ,he cant wind down ..its like that sometimes ,never mind nothing in particular planned for today so he can  just chill .

After he went last evening ,I was busy going through my summer wardrobe,filled trusty trolley with stuff for the charity shop ,I have to admit to having the football on ,and being pleased when England scored...Ithen selttled down to watch my DVD,'Memoirs of a Geisha' thoroughly enjoyed it would recommend it as a hauntingly Beautiful film ,with some lovely music, it was directed by Steven Speilberg ,so that says it all !

Getting back to tomorrow(thats an argument in terms !!)  re Allans party, Emails have been going to and fro ,about the venue, parking etc,and I quote...Everyone(nearly)will be singing a song,telling a tale,or something and ,guess what,you are invited to participate,dont worry its nearly all family ,so you will know plenty of people.Dont worry.I wouldnt put you on the spot(or would I!!!)  Yes he Tuddy well would  ! Talking to Jean about it ,I said ,to her I would announce that Id sing 'Land of Hope and Glory'...knowing they'd grown and sat" NO "!!,so I'd apologise and sit down !! ...'no we wouldnt',she said with a chuckle ,' we'd let you sing it '!  so that idea is out ....

I got ,done for shoplifting ! It was like this, I was in John Lewis ,department store in local shopping centre ,Id broken my tail comb ,so found what I wanted ,remembered I also needed some blusher ,so made my way to the cosmetics department which is near the door ,happened to look out and thought I saw some one I knew ,as it happened it wasnt !But nearly jumped out of my skin when a blooming great hand ,grabbed my shoulder !Excuse me madam ,we believe youve got goods you havent paid for ,I tried to explain ,but no, this gorilla in security mans clothes wasnt having it !I was escorted to the managers office ,where this man told the manager his tale ,no one was listening to me ,then as they locked me into a little room off the managers office the words police were ringing in my ears ,oh my God ,what will work say! its bound to be in the Evening Telegraph ,whats the neighbours going to think ,and my family !and Maurices family ,and Maurice OH he will kill me ,I did some quick thinking ,looked around the room ,there was some racks with files  a couple of chairs,and a desk ,there was a window leading out onto a fire escape,just then I heard voices ,I made a decision , The window ,it was stiff,but I managed to get it open ,and Id straddled the window sill when into the room burst,a police man ,the manager,and the gorilla ,well there I was half in and half out of the window ,with this Tuddy great gorilla pulling my leg ,just like Im pulling yours.

Apologies to those of you that know this joke,but if push comes to shove and I'm really obliged to come up with a party piece ,I have always got this one ,So if I dont get to make an entry tomorrow have a lovely weekend everyone ........

LOL,  you had me going there for a minute!!!  I was laughing so hard at the idea of you crawling out that window and when I hit the punch line, well, I let out a big laugh!!  I had heard a different story that ended with the same punch line but it didn't dawn on me until the very end.  VERY GOOD.  You get big points for that one!  I hope you have a great time at the party.  If you do end up singing, I hope you get it on video and post it online so we all get to take a look and listen...  Oh, and yes, my new glasses are pretty nice.  They are going to take a little time to get used to because they are stronger but it is nice to see again.  : )        Have a good weekend!
