I've just come back from the Planet Zog in my spaceship. Funnily enough it looks just like Walsall Bus Station.

We wuz out on the cut in that speed-boot, an me mate fell in.  The missus war too pleazed - it was for uz Sunday dinna.

How ghastly, B&B! What is the name of the river that runs through Walsall? Is it the Tyne? I bet it's jolly cold! And foggy!

Actually, we must be careful what we say about Walsall - a very important person, of great relevance to the Manband, now lives in the area. You know who I'm talking about. And why. Yes, Stevie Nicks has got herself a one bed studio apartment near Bescot. (see previous witterings, jah knows where...) It's great for me as it overlooks the marshalling yard. I hope to 'cop' the remaining missing wagon numbers. Apparently she's also picked up the accent!

Yes, Nick, we do know who you're talking about. I intended to put a little note in my post asking him to forgive me, but forgot.

And I do still go to Walsall regularly. I work in the Brum area once or twice a week. I wonder where Ms Nicks lives?

It's rumoured that in the still of the night at Bescot Sidings you can hear a voice on the wind singing:

Yow con gew yerown way, gew yer own way
Yow con cawl it anutha lone-lay day

Yes, I've heard rumours as well. However, I must point out that you've got the accent completely wrong. A good try, but your accent was slipping through. Where did you say you lived in Wales? Upper Llanoleum? Sounds idylic!

I took one of the young female solicitors with me, whom I was having a fling with. I did the seminar, she just hung around.
Sorry everyone, just reminiscing. And just remembered, John B, that was the bird you met at the Blackpool gig.
Hi Rob, Noticed your genuine mistake. Its all right, I always get the words solicitor and soliciting mixed up. Are you sure she was a solicitor, I heard her mention something about being out late and school the next day...............

I was trying my very best, but it obviously wasn't good enough to fool you Mr Nation .  I've been on that 'ow ta spake proppa' course at the local evening class, and I've been reciting the Black Country alphabet every day, but I've obviously got a lot to learn.

All together now...

I was then about to follow up by asking why he went to Poland to recruit musicians before the zloty dropped.

No. Still don't get it.  Got the others.  This is getting silly.

I once interviewed Roy Wood and asked him where he recruited his all-girl band from.

But just worked out (again) how the quote thing works!

How many postings are we on now?

While we fill in time, waiting for the Swansea reviews to come cascading in, I've just realised this is a golden opportunity for me to boost my status to "Sr Member" without really trying  ;D

I wonder if any other members off this forum were at Leamington?

Yes, that's when you become Spanish.

Yes, I've been to Leamington.

I like this.
