You must have started early today.....
A venture that a magnum was involved, and not the kind that melts.

And I forgot Happy Birthday Sage from one of your legion of fans.....bottoms up.

What? That wasn't me singing, you know.

Mind you, I did have a modest swig of communion wine.

That is quite an accent. A friend was saying her mother can't understand what the actors are saying on many of the English shows such as Rumpole and East Enders. We are in the U.S. I advised she put the captioning option on so her mom can read what they are saying. Happy Birthday Mr. Sage!

I am sure that you would sound better than that....even after a few G&T's.

Steg said...

Many Happy Returns to The Sage.

cheers to the man, the myth, the legend.

Not many people have a true Norfolk accent like that any more. I remember, when I first came to live in Lowestoft, not understanding our gardener.

Martin, I will never be as good as the divine Postie, but thank you very much for the compliment.

And cheers to you, Steg and Jen.

BTW, Dew Yar Far Keep a Dickie? means Does your father own a donkey?

What a funny old song - it made me giggle - even though I hardly understood it.

Z said...

He was all the rage back in the 60s, Wendz. You don't wonder, now, that I have him listed in my favourites.

How do we know said...

Happy Birthday to Sage!!

That Norfolk accent is so difficult to do as we discovered in our production of 'Roots' (Arnold Wesker)
