A suggestion for the holidays ...

... one that won't require contending with traffic, no stressful crowds, no shopping, no inroads into the bank balance; one that will be accessible to the quick and the lame, the sniffly-ill and the (so far) healthy ...

It's been FAR too long since I got together with my good buddies in a chatroom (and, last time, we all agreed that it had been fun and far too long and "we should do this more often"), so what say we try to manage it over the holidays? I think an hour or two of online silliness in good company would do wonders for all of us. :-)))

P.S. I get off work at noon on Dec. 24 and don't have to report back until Jan. 3 ... any time or day is good for me.

Silliness for Saturday

Last night saw the arrival of my latest LP-to-CD conversion. This time 'round, 'twas one of my Two Ronnies albums (amazingly, the photo on this Web page is the cover for this particular recording). Have been listening to it today and realizing, after not hearing it for so long, just how much they really got away with on their show ... boy, a LOT sailed past me when I was a kid! ;-)

One of my favourite bits was Ronnie Corbett sitting in a big chair on a darkened soundstage ronnie corbett and telling hilarious rambling stories to the studio audience. So I thought I'd share one with my friends ... the tale of The Castaway (warning: there be slightly naughty bits and bad French accents here ***grin***)
