Let you imagination flow! I sometimes get one or two lines that just appear in my head, and those two lines contain everything!

      Dolly Well, if that's what it takes, he fits the criteria, but that would only let loose a nutter or more, as Boris is only one of many that fits the bill, Besides, I thing Teresa May should change her surname to Green. Alternatively use a hyphen, and change it to May-Ormaynot. On the other hand, there's always a bucket of frogs to consider!

      Dolly No Mike, it was written off the top of my head many years ago after a number of weekends I only have vague memories about, although I was assured by friends a good time was had by all!

      Dolly Hi Barny. I wrote it in my youth, recovering from a weekend of half remembered events, at least I think that's what it was, I tended to have weekends like that in those days. On reflection I shouldn't have posted as it contravenes my own self-imposed rule. Which reads: If I'm going to present a piece of writing, it has to be of an acceptable standard,

    Hi Mike. I recently saw an interview with Mel Brooks who commented that a lot of the films he did when he was younger, would be unthinkable now. Likewise, Mr Fallon resigned because of something that happened 15 years ago, which is now regarded s being inappropriate. However, at the time, no one batted an eyelid at it, otherwise he would have gone then. I think the decision to make what is acceptable or unacceptable behaviour, should be made carefully, and not be taken too far, or else we could end up with a situation with a government minister having to resign, because, according to the person he was talking to, (male or female), he was 'breathing funny, like was sexually aroused with talking to me!'
    I live in Leyland, Lancashire, a small town between Preston and Wigan. The nearest cinema is 6 to 8 miles away, and most of the films they show have little interest for me, so you are lucky living where you do, but then again, I consider myself lucky living where I am.

    Hi Mike, sorry about the delay. Been buggering about with words, music and a recording software package called Cubase, which I'm struggling manfully to master. At the moment I'm losing, but things can change. If you do happen across it for any reason, approach it at you peril!
    As for being recognised as someone else, I was frequently asked if I was Jack Nicholson! Honest! To the point where they would ask me if it was ok if they took my photograph, again, honestly. Since then, time has slowly taken its toll on my body. I've seen a recent photograph of Jack Nicholson, and I'm glad to say that I don't look anything like him now! He doesn't even look like a shadow of his former self, and would probably get a major role in the next Dawn Of The Dead film. There's always one being made, what number are we up to now?

    Yesterday, I was disturbed from my thoughts while shopping at my local supermarket, by a woman who said, “ Excuse me.”
    I turned and said, ‘Yes?” as there was nobody else shopping in the aisle.
    “Are you somebody on television,” she said.
    I apologised and said, “Sorry, I am not.”
    “Oh,”she said, looking a bit downcast.
    Out of curiosity, I enquired along the words of, “ By the way, who did you think I was?”
    She she shrugged her shoulders, “Well,’ she said vaguely, “Somebody on the nature programmes’
    We then continued on our separate ways. But how strange that the mere appearance on TV confers some sort of elevation.
    This has happened on other occasions. I was stopped at the Festival Hall once and some one said, “ is it Bill?” I said I wan’t and the man said, “I thought you were Bill who worked for the Arts Council?’ I was rather pleased that somebody thought I worked for the Arts Council, especially due to my somewhat trampish appearance, though I buy most of my clothes at Fat Face. I don’t dress up as I walk everywhere and wear the appropriate clothes and shoes. I was told in Cuba that i resembled Papa Hemingway and, apparently, I did.
    Last week I thought I sat next to someone famous at the theatre. My hearing is sometimes not so good, so I try to get a seat near the stage, I sat next to someone rather elderly, with a thin face and body, and a walking stick. He seemed familiar, But I would not dream of asking him who he was, I would consider it an invasion of privacy. We both waited for the crowds to disperse before leaving the theatre and he spoke to me. He said something along the lines that II was now free to continue with my crossword, which I had been attempting to complete in the interval, I laughed and said it was my aim in life to do the easy crossword on the train between Charing Cross and Waterloo East. (I have completed it by New Cross) So I might have exchanged a few words with someone of renown, At least to me.

    Knee trembling. The journalist whose knee was touched has said all on this issue. Well, not quite all. Just a little has been left for ‘Gilbert and Sullivan’ But a head has been lopped and a serious issue has been trivialized. I saw a funny musical on Monday which deals with the very serious subject of physical contact which is another side of the coin. The play/musical is humorous as we defined it. I went because the usher at the theatre said it was likely the play will book up. It is on at the small theatre in the Globe which is tiny!! Perhaps the play ‘Romantic’s Anonymous’ will transfer to another theatre. The run of the play is only a few months, I can recommended it to lovers of light farce and one which encompasses a serious issue - and a problem that does affect me. But see the musical.. It had been a film. I saw Handel’s Rosalinda last night at the ENO If you are a Handel fan it is a must. But it is only on in london. The seats need not be expensive.

    Dear Dolly,
    I saw an amazing group on Sunday. I saw them a few years ago and they did a similar performance on the Sunday. They are called 'the Alehouse ' It is a group of period instrumentalists starring Bjarte Iike and Barokksolistene. The performance stared with Purcell -the stuff he wrote for inns when the theatres were banned, but then went all over the world in time and space. They did say it was the last concert of their tour, but they did not say the group was splitting up., It was a great evening out.

    I had always had been given the impression that working class people were funny but working class comedians have disabused me of this.

    Well I suppose, Dolly, that the number is less than 67 and more than, perhaps, five. Did you write this in your youth, perhaps: your 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, or later?

    I think you should try some reconstructive surgery, restore it to its prime
    Undo those changes, restore the words - back to their own time.
