I've just had a terrible sneezing fit, possibly fifteen sneezes in a row, when my head finally returned to an upright position I noticed a dark shadow looming in the corner of my eye.....SWEET CREEPING JESUS. Before me stood a "Dust Mite" the size of Lord Mountbatten, immediately I attacked the beast and drew from my waist a heavy soft lead "Billy Club" you know the type that resembles a huge Bavarian sausage wrapped skin tight in a leather sack. Before I knew it the beast had me straddled in its myriad of arms attempting to infiltrate my nasal passages, then when I saw a break, I forced an arms length position and slammed the Billy club on the flat of one of it's many noses, this brought the foul savage beast to it's knees, whereupon I proceeded with deadly precision to rendered it in a full nelson, it's submission was inevitable and my sneezing has now abated..............

Fear the huge dust mite.

LAST MONTH 'YOUNG TONY' WAS ON AN EXCHANGE VISIT STAYING WITH HIS SWEDISH PENPAL 'LARS'...NOW IT WAS HIS PENPALS'TURN TO VISIT WITH THEM.......

GRANDPA, AUNTY VI AND MUM WERE ALL SAT IN THE KITCHEN...'WHAT FOOD DO YOU THINK THEY EAT IN SWEDEN' SAID TONYS'MUM ' I EXPECT THEY EAT A LOT OF FISH' SHE CONTINUED 'I KNOW I'LL GET SOME FISH-FINGERS, EVERYONE LIKES FISH-FINGERS' SHE EXCLAIMED...GRANDPA GROANED...MUM LOOKED DAGGERS AT HIM....GRANDPA STUTTERED..'OH YES, YES..FISH-FINGERS..CHAMPION, HE'LL LOVE THOSE' THEN AS USUAL HE SAID HE WAS GOING TO POTTER IN HIS SHED, WHICH WAS REALLY A EUPHEMISM FOR TAKING HIS PAPER TO THE OUTSIDE CLUDGIE AND STUDYING FORM...DILLIGENTLY PLACING CROSSES NEXT TO HORSES HE THOUGHT MIGHT WIN. HE CLAIMED IT WAS AN ART-FORM AND ALL BASED ON LOGIC, THOUGH HE GENERALLY LOST MORE THAN HE WON.

AUNTY VI REGULARLY BERATED HIM FOR WASTING MONEY AND POINTED OUT THAT HIS FAIL-SAFE SYSTEM USUALLY CONSISTED OF BACKING ANYTHING WITH THE VAGUEST OF MILITARY REFERENCES IN ITS'NAME SUCH AS 'BENN GUNN' OR 'TRAFALGER' OR EVEN 'TREATY' OR PROBABLY THE WORST 'TRUMPET' WHOSE RIDER GOT TRAPPED IN THE STALLS LEAVING THE HORSE TO RUN THE WHOLE RACE RIDERLESS...IT ACTUALLY FINISHED THIRD BUT THE BOOKIES WOULDN'T PAY OUT AND GRANDPA WAS LIVID..POINTING OUT THAT NOT HAVING A RIDER WAS A MERE TECHNICALITY AND HE WOULD BE WRITING TO HIS MP AND THE QUEEN TO COMPLAIN.

MEANTIME..DAD HAD GONE TO MEET 'YOUNG TONY' AND 'LARS' AT 'CENTRAL STATION' WHILE BACK AT HOME MUM WAS IN THE KITCHEN WITH AUNTY VI MAKING ONE OF HER FAMOUS LISTS OF THINGS THEY 'DEFINITELY MIGHT NEED' AND THOSE THAT WERE AN 'ABSOLUTE NECESSITY' LIKE POLISH AND CANDLES.

AUNTY VI SUGGESTED THAT IT MIGHT BE NICE TO HAVE A CANDLE-LIT SUPPER AND USE CANDLES IN THE HOUSE WHILE 'LARS' WAS STAYING..AS SHE'D READ ,SOMEWHERE, THAT THEY HAD VERY LONG WINTERS IN SWEDEN AND USED LOTS OF CANDLES...MUM AGREED..ADDING ' POOR LOVES..THEY PROBABLY DON'T HAVE ELECTRICITY LIKE WE DO, WELL NOT THE SAME ANYWAY, YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN' AUNTY VI NODDED SAGELY ' SO THE CANDLES WILL MAKE IT MORE HOMELY FOR HIM'........

'AND HE WONT BE ABLE TO SEE WHAT HE'S EATING' MUTTERED GRANDPA RETURNING WITH HIS PAPER TUCKED UNDER HIS ARM..'WHAT'S THAT' SNAPPED MUM...'NOTHING...JUST WONDERING IF THIS 'LARS' LIKES FOOTBALL' ........'OH I SHOULDN'T THINK SO ' SAID AUNTY VI 'IT'S ALL SLEDGING OVER THERE..I EXPECT THEY HAVE REINDEER RACES...YOU KNOW ..ONE VILLAGE AGAINST ANOTHER..THAT SORT OF THING' GRANDPA SIGHED....HE'D NEVER BE ABLE TO UNDERSTAND 'FEMININE LOGIC' , IF INDEED IT EVEN EXISTED ..HE THOUGHT TO HIMSELF.

' I THOUGHT THAT WAS NORWAY' SAID MUM' OH NO !!' EXCLAIMED AUNTY VI WITH A LOOK OF MOCK-HORROR ON HER FACE ' THAT'S CHRISTMAS TREES'....THEN SHE REPEATED SLOWLY AS IF TALKING TO A CHILD 'CHRIST..MAS..TREES' WHILST WAGGING HER FINGER.

'WELL I NEVER' SAID MUM ' IT'S A GOOD JOB AUNTY VI'S HERE ISN'T IT GRANDPA' HE NODDED WHILE AUNTY VI POSITIVELY GLOWED WITH SMUGNESS. GRANDPA ,STILL NODDING, THOUGHT TO HIMSELF 'HOW COULD ONE PERSON POSSIBLY CONTAIN SO MUCH USELESS KNOWLEDGE AND NOT HOLD SOME POSITION OF POWER'.

WHEN DAD FINALLY ARRIVED BACK HOME WITH 'YOUNG TONY' AND 'LARS' THEY FOUND THE HOUSE AWASH WITH CANDLE-LIGHT AND HANGING FROM THE FRONT BEDROOM WINDOW WAS A BEDSHEET EMBLAZONED WITH THE WORDS ' WILKOMEN LARS - WELCOME HOME TONY..HANS ACROSS THE SEA '

DAD THOUGHT THERE MUST HAVE BEEN A POWER-CUT ASWELL AS EVERYONE HAVING SOME SORT OF MENTAL-BREAKDOWN DURING THE COUPLE OF HOURS HE'D BEEN GONE.

THE INTERNATIONAL WELCOMING COMMITTEE CONSISTED OF GRANDPA, MUM, AUNTY VI AND VICTOR FROM ACROSS THE STREET WHO WAS POLISH BY BIRTH BUT HAVING GROWN UP IN BRITAIN COULD SPEAK VERY LITTLE POLISH, BUT COULD (AFTER A FASHION) RECITE THE LORDS'PRAYER..AND SO WAS NOW USHERED FORWARD, CLOTH -CAP IN HAND, TO OFFICIALLY WELCOME 'LARS' WITH HIS RECITAL OF 'THE LORDS'PRAYER' IN PIGEON-POLISH TO THE BACK-DROP OF A HOUSE ABLAZE WITH CANDLES AND 'YOUNG TONYS'FAMILY' ...WHO SEEMED TO HAVE COMPLETELY LOST THEIR MINDS.....GRINNING MANIACALLY WHILST NODDING AND SLOWLY SWAYING.

'LARS' ,MEANWHILE, LOOKED PERPLEXED....WHEN VICTOR HAD FINISHED HIS RECITAL THEY ALL CHEERED AND POINTED TO THE FRONT OF THE HOUSE...'TONY' SPOKE'THIS IS 'LARS'...'LARS'..'I THINK THIS IS MY FAMILY'? THEN 'LARS' SPOKE IN UN-HALTING PERFECT ENGLISH....HE THANKED VICTOR FOR HIS RENDITION PRAISING HIM IN THE PROCESS...VICTOR WAS OVER-THE-MOON AND GRINNED FROM EAR-TO-EAR'LARS ALSO THANKED THEM FOR THEIR WARM WELCOME REFERRING TO THE AMOUNT OF CANDLES AND SAID IT REMINDED HIM OF CHRISTMAS IN HIS HOMELAND.....AUNTY VI NUDGED MUM ..WHISPERING ' WHAT DID I TELL YOU' THEN HE ENQUIRED IF THERE HAD BEEN A POWER-FAILURE BECAUSE HE WAS VERY KEEN ON ELECTRONICS AND HE WAS QUITE SURE HE COULD FIX ANY PROBLEM, PERHAPS IT WAS JUST A FUSE..HAD THEY BEEN TRYING TO OPERATE TOO MANY APPLIANCES AT ONCE ?

THEY ALL LOOKED CONFUSED...WHAT DID HE MEAN BY 'TOO MANY APPLIANCES'..THEN GRANDPA SPOKE ' DO YOU LIKE FOOTBALL LAD 'OH YES ' EXCLAIMED 'LARS'...NOW TONYS'MUM AND AUNTY VI WERE REALLY CONFUSED ' WHAT TEAM' SAID GRANDPA ' TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR' SAID 'LARS'...'SO YOUR NOT IN THE HITLER YOUTH THEN' SAID GRANDPA LAUGHING 'WELL AFTER YOU'VE HAD YOUR FISH-FINGERS WE CAN ALL GO DOWN THE LEGION' NOW 'LARS' LOOKED CONFUSED AND MUM AND AUNTY VI WERE FURIOUS THAT GRANDPA HAD SPOILED THE SURPRISE SUPPER.

'WHAT ARE FISHY-FINGERS AND WHAT IS THE LEGION?' SAID 'LARS' LOOKING QUIZZICALLY AT 'TONY'

DAD CLASPED 'YOUNG TONY' AND 'LARS' BY THE SHOULDERS AND LOWERING HIS HEAD, OUT OF EARSHOT OF THE WELCOMING COMMITTEE, SAID ' THE ANSWER IS THEY'LL BOTH MAKE YOU SICK' ALL THREE LAUGHED CONSPIRATORIALLY...THOUGH 'LARS' STILL DIDN'T KNOW WHAT THEY WERE...YET !

PART 2 'YOUNG TONY ' XMAS 2006.

AFTER SUPPER TONY TOOK LARS TO MEET HIS CHUMS ,BUT IN ALL THE EXCITEMENT HE LOST TRACK OF TIME AND WHEN IT WAS TIME TO GO HOME HE REALISED 'LARS' WAS MISSING. WHAT WAS TO BE DONE ? HE DECIDED TO RUN HOME AND TELL EVERYONE THE TERRIBLE NEWS.

DAD TOOK CHARGE AND EVERYONE WAS ALLOTED AN AREA TO SEARCH.. GRANDPA ,WITHOUT ANY PROMPTING, SAID HE'D CHECK OUT ALL THE PUBS AND WAS OUT OF THE DOOR BEFORE ANYONE COULD STOP HIM.

IT WAS GETTING LATE WHEN GRANDPA ENTERED THE BAR OF 'THE DEAF FERRET' HAVING ALREADY SEARCHED SEVERAL HOSTELRIES, PAUSING FOR A DRINK IN ALL OF THEM, 'THIRSTY WORK THIS SEARCH AND RESCUE LARK' HE THOUGHT TO HIMSELF TRYING TO SUPRESS A GIGGLE.

HE SPOKE TO 'VICTOR' WHO WORKED BEHIND THE BAR WHO SAID 'LEAVE IT TO ME' AND STRODE OUT FROM BEHIND THE BAR...IT WAS NOISEY AND HIS FIRST WORDS WERE LOST IN THE HUBBUB ' HAS ANYBODY SEEN 'LARS TORDERS' HE SHOUTED THE LAST PART , BEFORE HE COULD CONTINUE THEY WERE BOTH TRAMPLED IN THE RUSH FOR THE BAR. IT WAS A FRENZY OF ARMS 'LEGS AND TEETH ,LIKE THE FIRST DAY OF THE JANUARY SALES.

LOOKING ON WERE 'BILLY & VERA' , IN THEIR USUAL SPOT, OBLIVIOUS TO THE PANDEMONIUM UNTILL BILLY REALISED THEY MIGHT BE NEEDED. BILLY WAS SIX FEET FOUR AND THIN AS A BEAN-POLE AND WHEN HE ATE A PICKLED EGG (HIS FAVOURITE FOODSTUFF) IT LOOKED LIKE A SNAKE SWALLOWING A RUGBY BALL. HE WAS IN 'THE ST JOHNS'AMBULANCE BRIGADE' AND ALWAYS CARRIED HIS 'FIRST-AID KIT' . HE WAS ALSO IN 'THE SALVATION ARMY BAND' AND PLAYED A VERY STRANGE SOUNDING TROMBONE. VERA WAS SMITTEN THE FIRST TIME SHE NEARLY SAW HIM, SHE LOVED A MAN IN UNIFORM OR ANYTHING WITH BRIGHT SHINY BUTTONS AND WAS FREQUENTLY TO BE FOUND TALKING TO THE 'FRUIT-MACHINE'. VERA WAS FOUR FOOT NOTHING WITH FRIZZY GINGER HAIR AND JAM-JAR BOTTOMS FOR GLASSES, TO SAY HER SIGHT WAS POOR WOULD BE AN UNDERSTATEMENT.

IN ALL THE MAYHEM BILLY SAID TO VERA 'EMERGENCY MY SWEET' AND THEY SPRANG INTO ACTION. BILLY RACED FOR THE DOOR, AS HE'D LEFT HIS FIRST-AID BOX IN THE SADDLE-BAG OF HIS BICYCLE, BUT HE FORGOT TO DUCK AND SMACKED HIS HEAD ON THE DOOR LINTEL AND WAS OUT COLD. VERA SHOT OFF IN THE OTHER DIRECTION TO WHAT SHE THOUGHT WERE THE LIGHTS OF THE BAR ONLY TO FIND HERSELF TRAPPED LIKE A FLY IN THE WEB OF DECORATIONS THAT ADORNED WHAT WAS LEFT OF THE CHRISTMAS TREE WHICH LAY ON TOP OF HER.

MEANWHILE VICTOR AND GRANDPA HAD MANAGED TO CRAWL OUT FROM UNDER THE SCRUM FOR THE BAR. THE EMERGENCY SERVICES HAD BEEN CALLED AND DULY ARRIVED. GRANDPA DRANK THE DREGS FROM A FEW PINTS AND STEPPED OVER BILLY WHO WAS WEDGED IN THE DOORWAY BEING ATTENDED TO BY AN AMBULANCE CREW AND LEFT THE BATTLEFIELD THAT WAS ' LAST-ODERS' AT 'THE DEAF FERRET'

.

WHEN HE GOT HOME 'LARS WAS SITTING THERE WITH THE REST OF THE FAMILY. HE'D BEEN TO 'THE FAIR' ON 'THE REC' AND THAT'S WHERE THEY'D FOUND HIM SURROUNDED BY GIRLS, PERFECTLY HAPPY AND WONDERING WHAT ALL THE FUSS WAS ABOUT..

KNOWING THEY'D ALREADY EATEN TONY CHANCED HIS ARM 'WHAT'S FOR SUPPER' HE SAID, BEFORE ANYONE COULD SAY ANYTHING GRANDPA INTERJECTED....' WINDMILL PUDDING IF THERE'S ENOUGH TO GO ROUND' CACKLING TO HIMSELF, HE ALWAYS LAUGHED AT HIS OWN JOKES. EVERYONE SIGHED HAVING HEARD THEM HUNDREDS IF NOT THOUSANDS OF TIMES.

GRANDPA SAID ' YOU'LL MISS ME WHEN I'M GONE'

AUNTY VI SAID 'WHERE YOU GOING THEN'

'DOWN THE LEGION' SAID GRANDPA, THEY ALWAYS PLAYED OUT THIS LITTLE DOUBLE-ACT, IT WAS PERFECTLY POLISHED AND ALWAYS ELICITED THE SAME GROAN OF RECOGNITION FROM THE FAMILY, BUT IT WAS TRUE, THEY WOULD MISS THE 'OLD ROGUE'.

'NOT LONG UNTILL CHRISTMAS' SAID 'YOUNG TONY' THIS WAS MET WITH ANOTHER COLLECTIVE GROAN ...BUT EVERYONE LOVED IT REALLY...THE TREE-DRESSING, GOING WITH DAD TO GET THE TURKEY, ALL THE BAKING AND FUSSING...SOON THE KITCHEN WOULD BE A POWER-HOUSE OF INDUSTRY WITH EVERYTHING GEARED TOWARDS 'THE BIG DAY'.

AUNTY VI WAS REMINDING THEM ALL OF THE REAL MEANING OF CHRISTMAS WHEN SHE SUDDENLY STOPPED AND BLURTED OUT 'BISCUITS !!!!!' ....'OH YES ' SAID MUM 'IT WOULDN'T BE CHRISTMAS WITHOUT BISCUITS' AUNTY VI THEN BEGAN TO WAX LYRICAL....

'OF COURSE MY FAVOURITES ARE GINGER-NUTS' SHE SAID

GRANDPA WAS GRINNING INANELY AT THIS DECLARATION AND TRYING TO STIFLE A LAUGH, SO WAS DAD.

TONY LOOKED PERPLEXED..AUNTY VI CONTINUED ' YES A COUPLE OF GINGER NUTS AT BEDTIME.......WITH A HOT CUPPA' ..AGAIN SNIGGERS FROM GRANDPA AND DAD....ON SHE WENT OBLIVIOUS TO ANYTHING...' I LIKE TO MOISTEN THEM AND THEN POP THEM IN MY MOUTH' GRANDPA AND DAD COULD CONTAIN THEMSELVES NO LONGER AND BEGAN HOWLING WITH LAUGHTER.

MUM AND AUNTY VI LOOKED DISSAPROVINGLY AT THEM ALL THE WHILE TUTTING..AUNTY VI STILL HADN'T REALISED WHAT SHE'D SAID TO MAKE THEM LAUGH AND 'YOUNG TONY' WELL HE COULDN'T UNDERSTAND WHAT COULD POSSIBLY BE FUNNY ABOUT DUNKING YOUR BISCUITS. HE THOUGHT THAT DAD AND GRANDPA WERE A COUPLE OF CRACK-POTS AND OBVIOUSLY NOT PLAYING WITH A FULL-HAND.AND AS MANY TIMES PREVIOUSLY HE THOUGHT ' I MUST BE ADOPTED' THAT WAS THE ONLY LOGICAL ANSWER.

'YOUNG TONY' NOTICED 'LARS WAS GIGGLING TOO...'OH NO IT'S CATCHING' HE THOUGHT THEN SUGGESTED THAT HE AND 'LARS' COMPILE AND COMPARE CHRISTMAS LISTS FOR 'SANTA'....'LARS' POINTED OUT THAT THE WHOLE THING WAS JUST A FABLE...TONY SAID HE KNEW THAT BUT IT KEPT THE GROWN-UPS HAPPY AND GAVE THEM AN EXCUSE TO BEHAVE LIKE CHILDREN..

' WE ARE ALL CHILDREN' SAID 'LARS'

WHICH TONY THOUGHT WAS A VERY STRANGE THING TO SAY YET SOMEHOW MADE SENSE OF IT ALL...THEY BOTH LAUGHED.

TONY JUST KNEW THIS WAS GOING TO BE THE BEST CHRISTMAS EVER !!

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYBODY !

We had a fantastic christmas night at the greatstone, big thanks to everyone who came down a bumper crowd with a lot of new faces, a big thank you to the guest dj's Alan pollard, les Hare and Soul Sam, all of them did us proud, i couldnt tell you what was played, will try for some playlists. Tony and Paul did a great job as usual Budgie played a great set and stevie z did us proud as always. It was a great night to see the old year out.

Hi Mark, Tony, Paul, Pete & Steve,

Many thanks as ever for asking me to play a set, I really enjoyed myself and I think a great night was had by all, the atmosphere was brilliant and a real packer as well and some of the stuff Les played was out of this world especially the rock steady. Below is my playlist as far as I can remember, lets hope New Years Eve is as succesful, I'm sure it will be.

The Soundbreakers - The Jerk is catching - Symbol.

Betty Turner - Be careful girl - Liberty.

Soul Brothers Inc - Pyramid - Golden Eye.

J.T.Rhythm - All I want is you - Palmer.

The Lyrics - So glad - GNP Crescendo.

Bobby Reed - The time is right for love - Bell.

Denise LaSalle - Here I am again - Westbound.

The Hesitations - She won't come back - Kapp. (Spanish).

T.S.U.Toronados - Please heart don't break - Rampart Street.

Bull & The Matadors - If you decide - Toddlin' Town.

The Topics - Booking up baby - Mercury.

Maxine Brown - Am I falling in love - ABC Paramount.

Clydie King - Soft and gentle ways - Imperial.

Towana & The Total Destruction - Wear your natural baby - Romark.

Fantastic Four - Live up to what she thinks - Ric Tic.

George Smith - I've had it - Turntable.

Chi Chi - If your gonna love me - Kapp.

Rance Allen Group - Reason to survive - Capitol.

Jean Wells - What have I got to lose - Calla.

Regards

Alan
