something for a dark winter evening!

Jack Dee is an old Symondian so I feel safe in reproducing his entry in this week's Radio Times-
"An ice-cream man was found dead in his van, covered in hundreds and thousands and raspberry syrup.  The police reckoned he'd topped himself."


  1. Crikey, R A, have you got a database of these things?   Well, I have now - I'm going to transfer your letter to my Psion PDA for handy reference.   By the way, what's your first name? I can't see it anywhere ...  

  2. hello Listers, Just to let you know that I am still here, musing quietly to myself and getting ready to drive to Germany with Annie in my camper-van to see our daughter.   This one is more for the 'balmy summer evenings'    A creative writing class at Slippery Rock University was asked to  write a concise essay containing the following elements:    Religion, Royalty, Sex and Mystery
     The prizewinner wrote:
      "My God," said the queen, " I am pregnant! I wonder who did it?"
      regards,   jim      

  3. Hi Jim
    Looks as though things are good for you ... thanks for the site, thanks for the "Essay" (Don't remember ANYTHING like that in 'Oofy's' day, but maybe I wasn't paying attention !!! )
    Hope you have quality time with your Daughter and enjoy your trip 'im toto' to 'Germania' (you see, I DO remember something from 'EO') ( as well as 'nil illigitime carborundum') ...
    Take care ... regards !!! ... and keep smiling !!!

  4. Message for Doug Clews - saw your address as Perth WA and glad to see that there is another ex PSSW over here on the western edge of this wonderful island. Not quite the same the same vintage though ('64-'71) - and like Tommy Cooper Adams am an ex Wyke Lodge boarder. So where do you live in Perth Doug? We're just a few kms from the City centre in Inglewood.
