Breaking news

There's no easy way of saying this. You might want to sit down.

Harold MacMillan is dead.


(Sorry about that. Some time soon somebody's going to have to tell the lotophagi in the Reference Library that the 1950s are dead and gone. I'm just getting some practice in, in case it turns out to be my job to do it.)

The 1950's are alive and well and living in Minehead. Or my head.

You are a veritable Odysseus. Bags me being Circe.

Pat: the former is very true. The latter...

Madame DeF: that's what accountancy does to you!

Jimmy Bastard said...

I'm sorry to hear that, he owed me a tenner.

Happy Frog and I said...

Got to agree with Pat on this, though the 1950s are also living very well in Reading as well as Minehead. :-)

Jimmy: what some folk will do to weasel out of a debt!

Happy Frog & you: I am astonished by this. I know for a fact that 1963 got to Welshpool. The Major and I witnessed it in 1999.

But tell them Messrs. Hilter, Kaiser Wilhelm and King Philip II, et al. are still alive - keep them from wanting to leave the Reference Library and causing even more trouble.

Gadjo: I don't think there'll be much danger of their moving far from the cave.
