I remember when the Kipper Family split up, Sid used to explain the non-appearance of 'father' as "He's gone into an old folkies home".

There's probably a lot of old codgers in there these days. Perhaps you could bring them out for the day at Shrewsbury - but keep them well away from the Main Marquee, or at least get them to turn their hearing aids off. They won't like it you know.

I'd better be careful - I'm now officially on the slippery slope to old-codgerdom
