Happy Birthday Scroat ummmm - enjoy the walk home but mind the canal
Happy Birthday Scroat. Enjoy a pint or two of Badger Fister.
Happy birthday scroaty. enjoy a few jars of lethwaite's funny peculiar.
Thank you one and all. Just got back, feeling as if I've walked ten miles. Which is to be expected I suppose. Stopped for an egg and bacon roll at the Flowerpot at Aston. Had a couple of pints of Hobgoblin. They had Sneck Lifter on draught, but I wasn't tempted. Perhaps I should have been.
And the first thing I came across this morning on the Thames Path just outside Marlow was a tree planted in memory of Freddie Starr. Never mind the hamster...
Pizza and a DVD en famille ce soir. As it's my birthday, I get to choose. It's gonna be the latest Star Trek.
Plus more drinkies I suspect.
Thank you again.
Sorry for being late, but Happy Birthday Scroat!
(And am I just really slow, but is Freddie Starr dead?!)
I wondered that
If not-why not?
Mr.Scroat - Freddie Starr update please
Enjoy the grog
Well I suppose he is dead, as is the hamster (what he ate), but I always get him mixed up with Bobby Davro or someone.
But having done a quick Google, and then checked on a search engine, it seems he's still with us. I knew I should have taken a pic of the plaque.
I'll go back and have another look on Saturday.
There could be more than one Freddie Starr I suppose.
Watch this space. Well not THIS space, but another very like it, further down...
Bobby Davro stood on my toe.
Which isn't quite as attention grabbing as the old "Hamster" one, but true nonetheless.
A few years back, the F-i-L treated us to BA Club Class flights to Orlando, and Mr Davro and
bratssorry, family, were travelling Premium Economy. Rather than walking back to the loos in his section, he kept sneaking through to use the Club toilets. After about the 4th time, the flight attendants told him that he wasn't allowed through the curtains. Of course, the superstar that is Davro used the classic "Do you know who I am?" line, to which Mr B replied, "Aye, you're that pain in the arse that keeps coming through here!". At which Davro took a step towards him, standing on my toe.
He was told by the Captain himself that he was being a nuisance, and to sit down.
Should have thrown him off.
I once had the whole cast of 'Hi de Hi' in my shop - they were in panto at Wolverhampton. Tight bunch,didn't buy a thing. Mind you, I never went to the panto.
We quite often get luvvies in our shop. But I never know who they are because I don't watch TV much. Had one very excited volunteer grovelling to some bloke who was [whispered] "very famous" for half an hour recently. When he finally left (having not bought a thing) I asked her who he was. "Gosh, I don't know," she said, "But he's ever so famous." Meh.
Happy birthday Scroat x
