Half timbered 45s

Well: Half timbered because I found myself in Tudor times. Fortunately I took just one lens, that 45mm...

Despite inserting several pipes and blowing fit to bust, Cuthbert still cant get a tune out of his goat.



Mistress Spinge is up to her old tricks. Torturing the village cats by catching their tails in rotating machinery.



Meanwhile Baldrick, who features in today's blog...




... is unhappy with this game. He didn't want a drum, he dreams of his own turnip.



Pete

PS. This isn't re-enactment or anything, that's how we dress here in Noobry

PPS. I think they should bring back the Codpiece. Anyone else with me on that?

Well, unfortunately, for me it would have to be the spratpiece.

And no wonder Cuthbert is silent. He's sucking his goat, not blowing it.

Living a long way from the ocean it would have to be a White Suckerpiece around here.

Noobry reminds me of Nantwich, Cheshire, they dress like that all the time there as well.

"The congregation were frankly disappointed: After all that fundraising, the new organ was smaller than it looked in the advert"

Are you sure that's an organ? It looks more like a piece of Batmans equipment to me.

She's using it wrong, anyway. That squeezebox thing should be operated between the thighs.

Re: Half timbered 45s

Another typically entertaining and amusing thread from you with some excellent, sharp images, Pete. The underwhelming church organ reminds me of the Stonehenge prop in 'Spinal Tap'. There was obviously some sort of miscommunication about the dimensions. Is it true the original church organist resigned in a strop when he saw it?
