Missed a chance to upload some Screaming Jay Hawkins here but instead we get Tommy Handley singing about bananas and eggs.
Went to Crewe Flea market today and didn't find any fleas but Hazel found some flies - in a little red tin. I expect she will show it on her blog fairly soon along with the collection of odd gramaphone needles and lead shot tins. You can find them here.
I didn't find much of interest just a record called Don Juan's Monster Hits Vol. 2 , which turned out to be rather similar to the Barron Knights. Also two PC games for £1 each.
Hazel took Flo to the vet's yesterday to have her bottom de-clagged. The vet said it was probabaly due to too much rich food, so we are cutting back on the trifle and eclairs.


Tommy Handley - Bananas Are Coming Back

Tommy Handley - The Egg Song

Two typically daft songs about shortages of fruit and other foodstuffs in the war by Tommy Handley who was there in the black-out cheering us up whilst the bombs were dropping. A stalwart of ITMA (It's That Man Again) on the wireless during the war years.

A flea market on Wednesday? Ours only go on during the weekend.

That poor bunny and poor Hazel!

She has a wonderful life not unlike James Stewart in that film hwere he washes the invisible rabbits bottom. You know the one.

That one would be "Harvey"...
You should try washing the bottom of an old, leaky corgi... who's not particularly interested in having her bottom washed.

Glad you got to see the "How to Draw a Bunny" DVD... I looked everywhere to find one for you... but they all seemed to be zone 1... only working on north american machines... good that Angelica could find one that would play for you...

We have a multi-region DVD player Jonathan which plays region 1, 2, 3, etc. and even video cd's and mp3's. It was very cheap too.

Now, you tell me...

I thought it was common knowledge!

Jonathan said...

That's an oxymoron..
knowledge isn't that common,
at least in my case...
