Great boys.  When I got Talk Talk taken out and BT put in I had a lot of trouble and at one stage I had no phone or WiFi so I couldnít write or see the column.  When I left I was the princess.  While I was away Belfast Girlie joined the column. I came back and said. HI BOYS YOUR PRINCESS IS BACK.  Silence until Belfast Girlie flirted some more.  JJ and Lone Ranger were squabbling over her.  Lilian was her new best friend.  Jimmy was drinking champagne from her shoe.  I thought FLIP THIS FOR A LAUGH and talked to myself for a while.  In other words I ignored her.  The popularity had gone to her head.  She would burn herself out. She sent PMs telling us how much she was enjoying herself and she hoped we didnít mind but I did so I just ignored her pm.  She referred to all her friends and her silent angel.  That was me. Dawson was quiet.  He remained a gentleman and answered sensibly when she flirted with him.  Dawson was interesting to her.  Time to put more effort into Dawson.  Dawson mentioned he was going somewhere and Belfast Girlie squealed so was she and she might see him there.  How did she know what he looked like?  I donít know but they met up and guess what WE NEVER HEARD FROM BELFAST GIRLIE AGAIN.  Shortly offer that Dawson disappeared and brismar was on our screens.  I never heard of brismar so I was politely standoffish.  GUESS WHAT.  Brismar was Dawson.  I had to be careful.  Was this Dawson.  Yes definitely it was.  No mention what happened to Belfast Girlie.  All we know is she met Dawson and disappeared.  Problem solved.  We donít talk about it.  The only reason Iím mentioning it now is this column is so private.  Itís like a gentlemanís and gentle ladyís club.  What?  Ho Ho gentlemen.

Hi everyone, I don't post very often, however now and again something comes up that draws my attention and the latest one is a mention on Freda Astaire's post mentioning the Lone Ranger. Does anyone know what has became of him ? I feel that I have an answer to his absence.

The Lone Ranger was John Duckett who is no longer with us. Johnís passing must be coming up to approximately a year ago. John was from Thames Street and married Carol Creighton from Burnaby Street many, many years ago.

Hi boys.  Nothing to say really so Iíll tell you about my Easter Sunday dinner.  I got a joint of beef on offer from Tescoís and I slow cooked it.  I had carrots and parsnips, cauliflower and broccoli mornay, roasted onions and champ.  I made the gravy from the juice which came out of the meat and boy was it nice?  No it wasnít nice.  It was DELICIOUS.  I said to myself Freda.  You can cook girl.  I followed that with one profiterole and followed that with pear sponge and coffee.  D. E. L. I. C. I. O. U. S

Hope you both had a nice day and I hope Jimmyís pain has gone completely.  Itís such a nice quiet private column.  I like it like this.  Oh the beef would have melted in your mouth it was so tender.  There wasnít a pick of fat on it.  What did you boys get for your Easter dinner?
