Hi Everyone!

Late to the party, but I could bring along a pre 1994 bottle of Harvey's Bristol Cream, i.e. a green bottle, not blue, which  my then under age  son won in a raffle about 12 years ago! It's been in the back of the cupboard ever since...is this a sign of hoarding?!.....I keep thinking it might come in useful for something!

Mart 'n' Al -Great spot of the CSNY lyrics.As to your hair,could you not try a self inflicted version of the
old practice of hair singeing?
Here is some kit to get you started (also applicable to ear hair)

Thanks everyone.  The party continues then.

Put on your hotpants (ladies) and white trousers (men) and let's party.

White trousers?

I play croquet - of course I have white trousers!! ;D

Talking of which I have a bottle (12 years old?) of "Croquet - vin au quinquina".
Is it worth opening, do you think?

Bit of research - it's similar to Dubonnet or St Raphael!

So it's Dubonnet in disguise?I'm not sure it will be effective against Coronavirus-malaria,possibly.In the worst case could it be considered an accompaniment to fish and chips(?)

          although I get my haircut every 3 months and I hate having it done, I was letting it grow a little bit longer. I now expect the party will be cancelled, so I'm quite keen to get my haircut. I do not want to sit for 15 to 20-minutes being breathed on by a barber who has been breathed on by lots of other people. Will anyone at the party have some garden shears or sharp kitchen scissors and be prepared to give me a number two, in less than 3 minutes?

Alternatively, as I haven't tried cutting my own hair since I was 2 and 1/2, I'm quite tempted to give it a go myself.

Are any other gentlemen in a similar situation?


Keep it until it's long enough for a ponytail.

It's great to see the party continuing.  I'm sorry if I left abruptly last night but real life sometimes intervenes.

Somebody (I'm sorry, I don't know who it was now - things got a bit confused) mentioned a party piece.  Anyone who wants to provide us with some entertainment will be very welcome.  We have some Morris Dancing and Martin doing his Beatles impression and who knows what Viktoria is up to on that table.  I can do a very good impression of Frank Sinatra singing New York, New York.  I'm not sure if I could do it whilst wearing my very tight satin skirt with the split up to the armpits though.

I was pleased to see that Viktoria was OK - she had clearly emerged from where she had rolled under the table after falling off.

Such a pity though that it was taking her SO long to get dressed up. We missed her last night.
