Time Out

A week ago I had to travel home unexpectedly to see my father as he was very ill.  He has since passed away so it will be a little while before a new post appears here as I'll be with my family for another month.

Stamp Release
 
 
 

Just in time for April Fools Day, the Royal Mail put out these Comedy Greats stamps.  The ten first class stamps feature renowned comedians including the cast of Monty Python, French and Saunders as well as Peter Cook and Dudley Moore.  I dare you not to smile as you look at them and remember something they did that was hilarious. The first thing I thought of was the unforgettable sketch by the two Ronnies of the hardware shop, when one requested "fork 'andles" but was mistakenly given four candles and on it goes through other language mishaps.   These stamps will certainly make for happy mail.
