Its all very well for you lot. You dont have to dress up to look frightening.
I have to spend hours in make up, just to disguise my natural good looks.

Did you know there is no medical name for the back of the Knees?
People call it "The back of the Knees, but.....
The medical profession has no name for The back of the Knees?
Aint that strange.
They have a name for the front of the Knees.ie The Knee Cap.
(Funny Bone) and indeed every other orafice ,organ, bone in the body,
But no proper name for the "Back of the Knees.

Naughty Forty I hope he is having a op on the front of the Knee,s if its the back of the Knee,I fear,
" The NHS wont be able to find it?

I believe it was Spike Milligan who pointed out that if god had designed our knees to bend the other way - with the knee cap in the rear - we would all be able to pick our toes while kneeling to pray in church.
Just a thought...........

My Cat Sammy has a very bad Fractured Pelvis.
Which ment at the time of the accident that his back end floped down sideways onto the floor and he had to drag himself with his front paws.
He was operated on last Thurday night spent the weekend in the vets and came home last Tuesday. he is now standing but not for long periods and if you have to pick him up which one finds one self doing repeatedly he screams the house down.

But you have to pick him up because he gets himself into positions whereby he cannot move and one has no alturnative.
He is on Painkillers and the claws in his front paws which were all broken or snapped off will grow back again & mend in time. The vet has asured me that Sammy with heal in time but it will take a long time.

Thin on the ground, but very enjoyable.

Friday evening Norman and me in a three hour non-stop performance. First time as a scratch duo, and the crowd seemed quite keen.

Saturday seven or eight of us, and Fiddlefit in concert.

Great beer as usual, thank you Rob, and thanks to the lads keeping the fire going we were warm throughout.

Roll on the next one.

Neither of us felt up to it this time. Bit vulnerable to the old night air. Glad it went well though.
