On The Fiddle

Roger pointed me towards this great clip of Wilbur Hall from a Spike Jones TV Show in the 50's. Amazing stuff. I think Little Tich used to have a pair of those long boots also.
It's Saturday once again- the week has whizzed by. Have mostly been blogging and collaging. Waiting round for the postman who sometimes arrives and sometimes doesn't due to 24 and 48 hour strikes. Thankfully its all been settled now.
Maybe go and see Rat-a-tooey today as part of Archie's birthday treat. It's on in Knutsford.
I walked into town the other day and bought Archie "Ice Age 2" on DVD as a bonus present. It has directors commentary and bonus short film and other extras which is always interesting. Maybe our Staurday night "family film" if there isnt much on the box and there usually isn't these days! My leg has gone to sleep so better get up and walk around and get some milk and papers from local shop.

I laughed and laughed and laughed some more. I want a pair of those shoes!

Tonight we'll probably watch some of the last West Wing wot I had for my birfdy and maybe watch the rugger.

Me too. Heres Little Tich's big shoes.

We saw Rat-a-tooey which was o.k. but not as good as Toy Story- amazing to look at but weak story. Rather spoiled too by poor simple girl next to me pleading to her Mum every five minutes "Its' sad!" and "What's that?"

An early pyramid scheme no doubt.

Well, we're off for a wander down to the river now...

Toot and come in?

Hope you had a nice wander. Have you been to the BFI archive yet?
