Jolly Caper

Listening to Stump.




Dear diary, I bet my pen runs out during today’s entry. 



Well, it’s 8.40pm … ho! ho!  ho! What a jolly caper today has been.  I wrote to Dodo, telling her I will see her again, but the rest of the day was rather boring for me.



SAD NEWS: Mega-ace Hollywood actor Danny Kaye has died!!! 


I loved him in The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty – one of my favourite films about five years ago – and who could ever forget ‘the vessel with the pestle; the chalice from the palace, and the flagon with the dragon’?  And ‘the brew that is true’!


Jezebel.  JezebRitcherd.  Ritcherd.  Ritcherd.  Jezebel.  Jez.  Jez.



AWFULLY SHAEGHT NEWS:  Our Jeff (who is sixteen) has been arrested in Castleford for shoplifting.



The Mission were on Whistle Test, performing ‘Severina’ and The Beatles‘Tomorrow Never Knows’. 


Excellent.



‘SO, WHILST DEAREST + DARLING GENE IS DESPERATELY IN LOVE WITH JEZEBEL, WHAT OF DEAREST DODO + FLASH + RITCHERD.  ARE THEY ALL MATES?  WHO CAN TELL?’
