Sir Alfred Howard Whitby Hickman, 3rd Baronet.

So he was a woodwind player then?

Funny you say that, because I thought they were a 1960's  novelty band who imitated pop groups

The world expert on European wasps and the sounds that they make is taking
a stroll down his local high street.

As he passes by the record shop, a sign catches his eye.
'Just Released - New LP -Wasps of Europe & the sounds that they make -
available now!'

Unable to resist the temptation, the man goes into the shop.

'I am the world expert on European wasps and the sounds that they make.
I'd very much like to listen to the new LP you have advertised in the
window.'

'Certainly, Sir,' says the young man behind the counter. 'If you'd like to
step into the booth and put on the headphones, I'll put the LP on for you.'

The world expert on European wasps goes into the booth and puts on the
earphones. Ten minutes later, he comes out of the booth and announces, 'I am
the world expert on European wasps and the sounds that they make and yet I
recognised none of those.'

'I'm sorry Sir', says the young assistant. 'If you'd care to step into the
booth, I can let you have another 10 minutes.'

The world expert on European wasps and the sounds that they make steps back
into the booth and replaces the headphones.

Ten minutes later, he comes out of the booth shaking his head. 'I don't
understand it', he says, 'I am the world expert on European wasps and the
sounds that they make, and yet I still can't recognise any of those!'

'I'm terribly sorry, Sir' says the young man, 'perhaps if you'd like to step
into the booth again, you could have 5 more minutes.'

Sighing, the world expert on European wasps and the sounds that they make
steps back into the booth. Five minutes later, he comes out again, clearly
agitated.

'I am the world expert on European wasps and the sounds that they make and
yet I have recognised none of the wasps on this LP.'

'I really am terribly sorry', says the young assistant,

'I've just realised I was playing you the bee side.'

Oho!

I've been playing Focus's 'Moving Waves'. Good album, although I prefer the seaside.

Somewhere in my attic I have a copy of Samantha Fox's first single. It's a double D-side.

Have you heard about the new corduroy pillows?

They're making headlines everywhere.

That last posting reminded me of a good friend of mine. He's called Roy as well

The irony is that when Oscar Pistorius wakes up this morning there really will be a burglar using his toilet.
Forgive me my nonsense, as I also forgive the nonsense of those that think they talk sense

It's widely believed that Robin Hoods true love was Maid Marion, but if you listen carefully to the song it's apparent that the honour should go to Trudie Glenn.....
