MH, I'm sorry to hear about those deaths, I know the infection rate in the South West has previously been low, hope you don't have to join us in tier 2.

Voktoria, as always you have given me a laugh. Chained up in the cellar indeed!  ;D

I always watch Corrie, must admit some of it is getting on my nerves lately, it's all doom and gloom. Could do with a bit of the humour they used to manage to inject.

Roobarb, if you can watch the repeats of old Coronation St. programmes on channel 10,
Not long ago it was Jack and  Vera ,she had cooked the turkey and it was resting whilst they went for a drink .Jack had got  a big Alsatian dog ,won  in a bet.
They went to the pub ,came  back a little while later .
Yes, the dog had the turkey.
Trying to get it off the dog, but the dog became nasty .
Fleeing upstairs ,in the bedroom with a chair against the door ,the dog flinging itself against it( as I do when doing myPit Bull Terrier impression if
someone comes to the door at night.)
So  that  is how they spent Christmas .
I was aching laughing .
Bet Lunch and Alec Gillroy were like a double act ,so funny.

As you say, it has got ridiculous ,some story lines may be of help to some people, Yasmeen ,so many women know what  that  is like .
But it really is gloomy ,and in the present climate  not  uplifting at all.
Viktoria,

I've occasionally seen them when doing the ironing on a rainy afternoon. That sounds like a really funny episode, just the sort of thing we need these days.  :D

Well Bobby Ball of Cannon  and  Ball fame has died from Covid 19 .
His catchphrases really took off with children ,our school trip to Eskdale Youth Hostel and Muncaster ,Hardkott  Roman Fort etc one year rang with laughter
( it usually did anyway ) as shouts of “ Ow! Youv’e got me skin!” and
“ You little liar!”were passed back and forth- if not fifth!
He did a show in Blackpool’s Hospital .
Very funny .
Viktoria.
