It's quiet in here tonight or has everyone gone to another Christmas Eve party and not told me about it.

Ah well as I now have 2 black eyes and a rather 'yellowy' nose, there aren't too many people to ask "how's the other chap?"

Happy Christmas everyone   I*

Thank you Dave, I did and hope you did too.

On the facial front, things don't look too bad this morning according to my wife!!

I've been bitten by the flu bug so I've spent much longer than usual on my PC. So I've been reading "Thoughts of Oscar."  I was surprised by the opening heading, the picture of the tide coming in somewhere and a statement about his thoughts about the area. Now, I don't know whether or not this matters in this day and age, but in this opening statement it has the most glaringly schoolboyish grammatical error. Presumably been there since day one. I repeat, I don't know if it matters, I maybe nitpicking, but, one thing for sure, sixty years ago the writer would never have lived down the shame. There was even a sort of rhyme we, as schoolkids, had to remember so as to avoid this error.  I might add that the error is an omission of just one letter so I suppose the writer could claim that it was just a keyboard miss. If you believe that, you will believe anything..

You want to stay off there Mike!
Spelling mistakes might upset you...and you might find some of those on here.

Also, you might come accross some dodgy characters such as E Thug, and Ted E Bear.

You are much safer on here...

You have my sympathies, Mike, I've had it too. Fester will confirm I've been a pale shadow of my normal self!  :(

Sorry to hear about you, Dave. I had it all over Xmas, what bad timing. Fester, thanks for the warning which I will heed. Although, spelling mistakes, I make thousands, I was never any good at learning anything "by heart". But grammar, thats different. And, believe it or not, I've found another mistake in Oscars opening statement. Again involving the omission of one letter, but this time it could be just a missed typed letter. I also note that neither of you wrote about the grammatical error. Don't tell me that neither of you have noticed it. I don't believe it. Mike Or would you rather not comment?

My warning was purely tongue in cheek Mike.... those comic characters merely rant at each other.

Get stuck in, and enjoy it...

Yep Dave is not well, I need him back in full boozing mode as soon as possible!

But you can't use your maiden name if you're married!  :o

It used to be the norm in Wales for a woman to retain her maiden name when she married.
