The real reason men go fishing is that it is the only time they will ever hear somebody say "Oh my God, that's a big one!"
The three worst words a woman can hear when she is making love....."Honey, I'm home"!

Just one gig this weekend which is good. Shouldn't moan but I feel heat zapped and have damaged my ribs which makes it hard to wear my usual amount of re-structuring corsetry. Allan always refers to this as .. two sand buckets and a piece of strong rope! There will be no jigging about tonight.! Great to have a Saturday night reading my book in the garden with a glass of red.
Friday we were over at CURDSWORTH for the W.I. This was a Pudding Evening and they had allowed some of the men to join them.
Great to see our friends John and Jan, Chrissie Dance and friends and to get to meet some of the ladies. We had a wonderful night with them. Many thanks to all for their kindness.

The old ones..
A ninety two year old man went to the Doctor for a Medical. A few days later the Doc. saw him walking down the street with a beautiful young woman on his arm
At his follow up visit the Doc. said "You look like you are having the time of your life."
"Doing what you told me..."Get a Hot Momma and be cheerful!"
Doc. said "Think you need a Hearing Check as well...I said "You've got a Heart Murmur....be careful!!"

Just one gig this weekend. Over at CUTNALL GREEN with our friend BEV PEGG and some of his Rock and Roll Band including our old friend, DAVE SLATER. Hadn't seen the lads for a while so it was good to have a catch up.
Special 70th Birthday for Willy who had seen us many times. Great family and lovely friends.
Many thanks to all for giving us such a great welcome and for the lovely Sophie who did me a special drawing. Hope you enjoy the C.D., Willy.

Overheard in a Pub on Boy's Night Out...I'm in a bad place...I've got a teenage daughter and a Menopausal wife. One's growing breasts and one's growing a beard! I can't win!
I love some of the old jokes...and No...I don't mean Allan....
"I came from a big family. Four of us slept in the same bed. When we got cold, Mother threw in another brother."........Bob Hope.

Saturday night we were close to home. We were playing at BLYMILL VILLAGE HALL just off the A.5. Just off the A.5 and down lots of very narrow lanes which made me curl my toes and clench my fists and make little whimpering noises....and eventually made Allan shout "Will you just shut up! After visiting the next village along the route...unnecessarily...we finally arrived BACK at Blymill! Good to see Helen again and all of the crowd from Allscott Sugar Beet . Nice to meet your Scottish friends from Norfolk...who managed to understand us and enjoyed it. Thanks to all for coming along.

I think one reason they call them "Relaxed Fit" jeans is because they don't want to say "To fit a Bum the size of Bilston"..
Couldn't resist this old gag that Tommy Mundon and most of the Black Country team told at one time or another...
"Grandad why are you sitting in the garden with no trousers on? - "Well, last week I sat out here without a shirt and I got a stiff neck. This is your Grandma's idea!" B..Boom!

After a truly horrendous journey on the M42 Friday night. Chocca the Blocka and melting all the way in gridlock after an accident and down to one lane.we arrived at the beautiful village of Upper Bentley. Newly washed hair had flopped and I had wilted. People there were great and made us so welcome. Thanks to Elizabeth and John for asking us along.
Allan fell in love with a very friendly cow called "Gran" who is a family pet and loves people. I fear I shall be replaced if she can sing. Great to meet one of the Boggery Girls...Pat. She took part in one of the Pantos and was always ready to join in the fun. Good to catch up after all these years.Thanks to all the people who came to chat to us and to the lady for giving me a bottle of wine.

As we are in Football Mode...
Some of the things said over the years............
I'd love to be a Mole on the wall in the Liverpool Dressing Room at half time. Kevin Keegan....Bless him!
I used to play football in my youth...then my eyes went bad...so I became a Referee. Morecambe and Wise.
"What would you be if you weren't a footballer?"........."A Virgin!"...Reporter and Peter Crouch.
He dribbles a lot and the opposition don't like it...you can see it all over their faces! Ron Atkinson.

Quiet time of the year for Dandy.Writing new mateial. Hoping to get a bit more up to date with songs. Might even get to learn one from the 80s!!
Just a couple of gigs last weekend. Great to be asked to do the CANNOCK WOOD AND GENTLESHAW LADIES DAY again this year. It is a great afternoon. Beautiful Flower Arranging Displays by the very talented Sue. The room looked beautiful and there was the usual jewellery and clothes, shoes stalls in the adjoining room. Beautiful day and they had a scrummy lunch. Allan wolfed all of our cakes while I was looking the other way. Thank you for my beautiful bouquet. Great crowd as always.

Later the same day we made our way to WALMLEY GOLF CLUB for a Birthday Party for Roger who looked amazingly young. What a great crowd of friends and family. Thank you so much for making us welcome and for the lovely people who came to chat at the end.

These are two gigs to celebrate the ife of John Hendley who died suddenly at the beginning of this year. Some of you may have known him from his work with the Wolves, some of you may have known him from Folk Clubs.
We knew him as a friend and fellow performer since 1978 and he is much missed by all who did know him.
If any of you are interested there are 2 concerts and hopefully something for everyone will be covered....unless you like heavy metal or rap.

Going into a teenage boys bedroom Iis like a trip to Ikea. You go in for a look round and come out with 6 cups, 4 plates, a towel and some cutlery.
"Sorry to tell ya missus,..but yow're mon's had an accident up at the Brewery....he fell into the Vat an' drowned!"
"Oh! My God! Did he at least goo quick?"
"No. he day....he gor out an' used the toilet 3 times!"

Weekend gigs over and feet up tonight! Thanks to the lovely people from The Masonic Lodge, Tony and Barbara.. who were raising money for Air Ambulance and Solihull Heart Care Charity. The gig was in a Skittle Alley. Luckily we had possession of the balls and the skittles .Allan improvising backstage because there was no darts!!
Saturday night we were at Stratford Golf Course for the RomaHome people who are there for a few days meet. I have put on a picture of a Romahome. Bijou. We have worked for them before. Nice crowd. Good to meet Bernie from Birmingham with his Music Machine...Hurdy Gurdy..that he had built himself.

My new boyfriend suggested we play Doctors and Nurses! I was hoping it might be a bit more exciting than being left in a corridor for 2 days!
I know Allan only watched the Women's Cup Final in the hope that they might exchange shirts at the end of the match!
My dog was watching T.V. the other night. It was an Orchestra playing. You could see him thinking...For God's Sake...just thow the bloody thing!

Few thanks to peeps for weekend gigs. Friday we played at ALCESTER UNIONIST CLUB. This was our second time here. Have to say they are one of the best audiences we ever have. All scrunched round the billiard table...nobody moaning about balancing drinks or being squashed or being too close to Allan spitting. Set up in front of the Dart Board and the T.V..so we hid the Remote and the Darts...just in case. Thank you all so much. Love ya.
Saturday we are just up the road at BREWOOD JUBILEE HALL and we are working with our friend PETER LEE. Great audience and so good to see so many people we knew. Had an excellent night with them. Big thanks to all, especially the people who came up to chat at the end. Thanks to you for taking the time.

Two friends about to get on the scales at Slimming World Class..."I can still fit into my Wedding Dress I wore 17 years ago!" "Yes, you probably can...you were 8 months pregnant at the time!" Meeeow!!
I've just found a cut price Mott the Hoople C.D. at our cheapo local store. It's called ALDI YOUNG DUDES!

More thanks and mentions for weekend gigs. Sorry to be boring..but I feel it only right to acknowledge the people who organise these gigs.They work really hard to raise money for charities etc. Thanks also to the people who have showed concern for my health. I am on some antibiotics now and hope I will feel better soon.

Thursday evening and we are rocking over to our hometown of WEDNESBURY. This on the day that they have had the major water disaster of the mains water pipe bursting at Leamore. Something like 19 cars submerged and water cut off in areas of Wednesbury. We were working at the Masonic Hall by Morrisons for Wednesbury Rotary. They had been out to buy water for the caterers to make the soup and coffee. Great to be there and with so many people we knew or shared memories with. They gave us a wonderful 3 course meal and treated us so well, Thanks to Annette who had booked us on recommendations and had not even seen us. Very brave lady. Great to meet up with Mike Warner again after about 50 years or so. Lovely night.
Saturday evening we were headed off to Worcester again.We are doing a fundraiser for St. John's Hospice. This is a village we have played at many times in the past. In fact we have known John and June now for 30 years and they have become firm friends.It is so good to see them both again. The people here are so kind to us. So many came up at the end and said "You really cheer us up...it has been so good to laugh so much!". As you can see from the photographs our old friends John and Janet Jones and the gang came along. Allan and John couldn't resist a bit of Football Fun. John said he had only bought the Wolves shirt in case he spilled anything and needed to mop up.

Aynuk was very upset after his dog went missing. Ayli suggested putting it in the Express and Star to try to get a response. So he did..."Here Boy!"
So last week we had a special day to celebrate a hundred years of Women's Suffrage. The National Trust commemorated this with the perfect gift....a tea towel. Really!!

A few thanks are once again in order for people who organised events and people who supported events during the last week or so.
Last Friday and Saturday we worked and the pictures are below for these two gigs. Would have loved to cancel as I still felt really rough but they were both special gigs.
Friday night was the gig postponed during the snow. It was a fundraiser for Albrighton Lifeboat Rescue and Yvonne and her team had sold all the tickets and worked very hard for the evening. Couldn't let them down. Lovely crowd and I was pleased to see my old boss from Wodensborough High School. Ken Aston was Head of Science and I was one of his Lab Technicians back in the seventies/eighties.Thanks to all for supporting such a good cause. Loved all the flags and table names and decorations and the "soft" pork scratchins and pork baps. Loved the table called "I DAY DO IT ...IT WOR ME!" Took me right back to the kids at Wodo.

Next afternoon we were doing a very special party for our friends Val and Chris Wilkes who were celebrating their Golden Wedding Anniversary.They are such lovely people. We were a surprise for the guests...most of them knew us from the nearby Clifford Chambers and Hatton Village Halls. Luckily they seemed very pleased to see us.
Wonderful afternoon and the people were so kind. Made it worth dragging myself out. Congratulations and love to Val and Chris. Spectacular lightning storm on the way back.
