    Summer Wine Limericks

    Do we have any limeriskists ....limerickers..... err, people who can write limericks among us? I think it would be fun to limerickize the stories of SW. in limericks. I thought about this idea in the middle of the night when I got up to take a 'comfort break'. I spent the rest of the night...

    Carry on Painting

It is a cemetery and I suppose that most of you will be aware that Bill Owen is buried at the bottom of that slope on the left hand side.

    Gobble gobble, dribble dribble.

    I've just had a choc ice and you can see that I have reached my second childhood. The chocolate ran down my chin. However, my trusty friend Jack was there to clean it up for me.

    Could this be heaven?

    My boss and I were on one of our virtual walks this morning. We were being walked, by the cameraman, through one of the most stunning places in the UK, Polperro in Cornwall. I couldn't help thinking, is heaven as beautiful as this? It is so peaceful, so tranquil, so quiet and so picturesque. My...

    A very smart Compo?

    This fella looks so much like a very well dressed Compo. He wasn't famous for his singing and dancing but he was an exceptional hoofer.

    Do foxes have holidays?

    Being housebound my wife and I watch a lot of those walking videos made by enterprising members of the public who put them on You Tube. We are able to enjoy virtual walks in places we haven't seen thanks to the wonders of the internet. This morning we went on a virtual walk to Worthing in West...

    Tony Capstick was one of the original panda car team along with P.C. Cooper, played by Ken Kitson. He played his part extremely well but I never see him mentioned in the wonderful selection of letters that come into these forums. Tony lived in a beautiful part of South Yorkshire, Greasbrough...
