You do realise the same sick person did another three books of dead cats don't you ? Apparently you can get all four books as one now. Should be in stores in time for Xmas!

'Ere MudGuard, it's a terrible thing for your T to be missing something. Is it your toast, crumpets or scones? Do say and I'll try to get some to you! *BG*

Talking about cats, animals of which I am not too fond. Has anybody still got a copy of the hilarious book from the 70s or thereabouts, called something like "101 uses for a dead cat". I know of course that you are all far too young to remember that far back. *BG*

But most of all depending on whether me and Fib have managed to cultivate our beards by then...

Indoor camping... defo... as long as I am allowed to use my solid fuel burner, I hope you don't mind me digging a hole first, but it's the best way to keep the burner draft free...

A New Song for The Gathering

Let me wake up in the morning to the sound of kazoos humming,
And the merry whirr of toothbrushes to greet the dawning day.
The thumping of the cloggies will set the floors a-drumming,
As I stumble over sleeping bags to wash my sins away!

How I long to spend the daytime 'mid the sounds of voices singing,
As all along the High Street 'Catters sing, and dance, and play.
In the pubs of Stony Stratford sweet harmonies'll be ringing,
While on Horsefair Green a hamster's guiding John from Hull astray!

In the evening the 'Catscratch Band will send my feet a-leaping,
Until the dancing's over, and the last notes fade away.
Then I'll climb the stairs of York House where I hope I'll soon be sleeping,
And I'll count the sheep with Eric, and thus end a happy day.

(Off message or thread creep but might get to the right people). I was talking to Rick Fielding on the 'phone ("friends all over the world, none in this country but...) about his 2002 UK tour (probably September).His contacts are working on booking him gigs in Scotland , The North of England and Midlands but nothing further South. Any club organisers among you might like to PM him, I'm not in touch with the folk club scene myself, but if you can get him to Reading, MK or environs South wouldn't it be great?

Eric, where will the doctors fix a third hand on you? In case I should forget (which is probably the case) to say so just before the operation: good luck.

Could somebody please tell the anesthesist that he should not order Eric to count sheep for falling asleep, as this has the effect of exciting Eric instead of making him tired. ;-)

Noreen, did Eric ever look for something else?

Gareth, no need to be sorry; thanks for the explanation of a Whip Round - none of my dictionaries is good enough for such expressions... So what do masocists use as a similar expression? A Wadding Round?

Btw, I just found a long-forgotten piggybank holding enough money for transport to London which once again increases the chances that I will come!
