Is it safe to go out and buy beer?

I think the pics you got were from the Winchester meet.

It was a pub called the Eclipse. In the shadows of Winchester cathedral.

If the others had half as good a day as I did, then I enjoyed it twice as much as they did.

Which may be hard to believe.

But Lynton once said to me that you could put any number of spoofers together and they'd all get along, because of that shared sense of humour.

I reckon he was spot on with that observation.

I even met Queen Mudder, and she's lovely.

Never dreamt that spoofing would lead to meeting royalty.

But there you go...

Skoob.

Where I live, they won't let you in the cinema if you're wearing a full length black leather coat and a pork pie hat. So that's me effed.

Very strange.

I'd never admit to that Doc.

Man About The house?

Shame on you!

Shame I say!

They'll be accusing you of fish-stretching next.

Is there no end to this insanity?

Get your ass to the UK and I'll stand the fish and chips bill. The rest is up to you. I once saw Canada - from about 38,000 feet.

Near enough.

Very kind of you to say that QM.

She's more of a jazz buff - Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, that kind of thing. She's also worked with bands and done the lead with big bands on the standards. Only ever seen her sing once - Moon River - it was a favourite of her mum and dad's.

She's really good - though I say it myself.

She abandoned her career in music in order to bring the kids up with her first husband. What a waste - as Ian Dury may have said.

Funny you should mention Spanish Harlem - we went there when we were in NYC. Walked the length of 125th to see the Apollo Theater, from west to east, and had a meal in a deli underneath the el tracks. Very atmospheric and thoroughly enjoyable.

If we go to New York again we'll do it in summer, so we get to see both sides of it. It's pretty cold in the run up to christmas.

As for You Tube clips - not that we know of, although she was on TV in Singapore when she lived there.

She's my shining star anyway.

Regards

Skoob

Correct!

Spawn of the devil, without a shadow of a doubt.

The worrying thing is that 'Damian' was my birth name, until the dysfunctional family who adopted me changed it.

I'd have been better off in sunny Salford than with that shower.

Not to worry.

But please stop scaring me with these political insights. You know I'm the shy retiring type and prone to worrying.

Your friend in Portsmouth

Skoob.

Oh, and Mrs Skoob sends her best wishes. She'll definitely show next time we have a meet up. If only to keep me out of the hospital.

It's spoofing small town newspapers. The more mundane the story the better. Victor 'Doc' Nicholas came up with the idea. UK based writers do Isle of Wight News, and our American cousins write about Hog Jaw, Arkansas.

It's open to all.

By the way, we had a Spoof summit in Lunnun last saturday, at The Sanctuary pub on Tothill Street, just down from St James's Park tube station. Queen Mudder, Morse and meself were there. You'd have been a welcome addition to our motley crew.

You'd have loved the meet ups birb.

I didn't hijack a bus in London because I had the wife with me, but I was 'there' in spirit, so to speak.

There'll be another time, I'm sure, and I look forward to it.

Got to disagree with that Doc.

He supports Stalybridge Celtic.

He wouldn't fit in.

You like the Winchester pics old chum?

What a fine looking bunch of old bullshitters we are!

That was a very silly article.

Being from Manchester, living in the Portsmouth area, and having enjoyed many a wet winter afternoon watching United 'dahn the Lane' I kind of like 'Appy 'Arry.

Hence the five thumbs.

Have a pint. That'll sort it. I've tried all this 'going on the wagon' malarkey - it's rubbish.
