Comic Barry Cryer has just celebrated his 83rd Birthday....."The candles cost more than the cake and two people fainted from the heat".
Last night we had a drive out to the beautiful village of BIRLINGHAM which is just outside Peshore, Worcs. We were appearing at the lovely village hall there.
As you can see from the photographs it is all that is special about the English countryside.
The proceeds were going to the Church.The lady vicar there was brilliant. The people made us so very welcome although I fear we must have been a bit of a culture shock to the majority. They took it in their stride and although they looked a bit apprehensive at first they soon relaxed. Big thank you to all of you especially to Chris for looking after us so well and for Daphne and her late husband for suggesting us to the Village Committee. We really appreciated her coming under the circumstances.

First thing I do when I wake up in the morning is to breathe on a mirror and hope it fogs.
The first sign of getting old is listening to Radio 2 and thinking it's Radio 1.
All these modern disorders. When we were kids they were just Nutters!
Thanks to all the people who booked Dandy and welcomed us at gigs over last weekend. Saturday we were at HAMMERWICH CRICKET AND BOWLS CLUB for Jean's 80th Birthday. Lovely lady. Good to work with our friends Eternity Duo aka Cliff and Nicky. Thanks also to Ronnie Box who helped organise the event. Great time was had and Jean was very happy Birthday girl.
Monday we were back at ALDRIDGE MASONIC HALL to fulfill a cancelled Christmas gig due to the snow. Strange seeing another Christmas Dinner and everyone in Party Hats. Thanks to all for the welcome and kind words.

The man who invented cat's eyes got the idea when he saw a cat facing him in the road. If the cat had been facing the other way, he'd have invented the pencil sharpener. KEN DODD.

Hoping you have all had a wonderful Easter Break.
Just a word of thanks to the kind people of BRIMFIELD AND LITTLE HEREFORD AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY who made us once again so welcome.
Two weeks running now we have made our way through twisty lanes to reach the area just outside Tenbury Wells. It is beautiful scenery out that way and the people are great to work for. Our Compere for the night, Martin sent his apologies as he had a cow calving. Bit different in the Black Country they usually can't get there cause somebody has nicked the car. Lovely to see them all again. Thanks for our hot meal. Just what we needed.

We had a very irritating child visitor not too long ago. She said..."Ooh, Auntie Glynnis....what a lot of dust on the cupboard! Where is it from? I said.."Cremated fairies"! She was quiet for a while after that..

Lovely weekend gigs. Friday afternoon set off early for LITTLE HEREFORD AND BRIMFIELD BOWLS CLUB out near Tenbury Wells. Stopped en route at the Runnin' Hoss for a Nosebag. Then refreshed.... onwards to the Club. We have been here before. Lovely people. Good to meet Jim and Lyn and the President, Lester. Jim is part of a band...GREY WOLF who do Old Time American and Acoustic Music...www.facebook.com/greywolfoldtime Really nice guy and I checked out their music. Really good stuff. Proper excellent musicians.Thanks to all for a great time.
Saturday we are local. Off to the lovely village of ELFORD Scary to realise we first came here about 38 years ago. Allan was playing his 3 chords and trying to distract from his lack of expertise by telling jokes. We played then at the Folk Club at the Crown for Barry Hunt and Julie White.
So good to see so many of the people we have known for so long turning up to support us. Big thanks to Sue and Greg for asking us along and looking after us so well. They works so hard. The village goes from strength to strength. The Crown brews it's on beer called Bang on Bitter and I'm told does excellent food.. They have completely transformed and utilised the beautiful Walled Gardens. They now have a Coffee Shop and Salsa classes. Their Scarecow festival has attracted hundreds over the years. I have posted a couple of photos of some of the dolls I have made and displayed at the Church there on Festival days.
So many good times there. Thanks so much to all of you for coming along. Special Thanks to our friends, Jane and Dave Hill and their friends and to Alan and Carol. Lovely surprise.

Two Fortune Tellers meet on the street. One said to the other...You're fine! How am I!"

Saturday night and we are off to the village of WOODSEAVES. Great to be back here again. We have been coming for many years and the folk are lovely. Weather turned evil but although it was cold the audience were warm and with us. All you can hope for. Thanks so much for coming out and braving the elements also for Al's fish and chips and the offer of a bed for the night. You sat there in your coats and you laughed and joned in. It was a bit like the Blitz. Every time the door opened it blew somebody in, all the raffle prizes off the table and the entire room shouted "SHUT THE DOOR!!!" You were legend!

An old man drove past me this morning on his tractor and shouted "the end is nigh!" I think it was Farmer Geddon..

A strange selection of photographs to illustrate our Friday night gig. The official ones which I might get at a later date will be even more strange. This was the LIONS DISTRICT CONVENTION at the ST. JOHN'S HOTEL in Solihull. It was a themed night apparently and we arrived to find it described as A Black Country Pigeon Fancier's Gathering. It was a little unnerving to play to a front table all wearing the Pigeon Heads you see below. One lady had come as a Bag of Pigeon food and several were wearing flat caps with pigeon droppings on them. Another first. Good to see them enter into the spirti of things. Unfortunately i only know 2 pigeon jokes and I couldn't recall them. Thanks to all for a lovely night.

I always carry a note in my pocket saying "Allan did it" just in case he ever tries to kill me off and re-marry!
Just noticed my Anti Ageing Cream has gone off..How does Anti Ageing Cream have an expiry date?
Just remembered one of the worst chat up lines I ever had....."I'm a bit drunk and I'm finding you very attractive.!"

Great night last Friday over at the village of ELLERDINE. First time venue for us. Very young crowd and very lively. Initial panic....but they were really good fun and up for a laugh.
Brilliant surprise to have a visit from our friend Gary Hudson who, over the years we had lost touch with. Not seen him for about 20 years. Our last time together was on stage at Barons Court in Walsall singing Hungry Heart. Lovely to meet up with Lorraine. Gary had just got back from America that same morning after spending the two previous nights watching Bruce Springteen on Broadway. Watching us must have brought him back to reality with a bump.Really appreciate you coming. Made our night to see you both. Big thanks to all the crowd and to Michelle for inviting us.
