21CM - That's one of the best L&H Sketches IMO. From "Way out West". It's classic.

Hi Hoffy - Laurel & Hardy are just great aren't they! My friend Baba sent me the same clip but set to different music. There's also another one set to Abba. I love these MASH-UPs (which I believe is the correct word)and I also think that the BBC should bring back re-runs of Laurel & Hardy. There's no-one else quite like them. ;-D

For Christmas about 3 or 4 years ago, Beccy bought me the Entire Boxed Set of their films. I was going to create a "Sons of The Desert Tent" in Bury St Edmunds. It's like a Laurel & Hardy appreciation society. Perhaps I still will at some point in the future.

How fab Hoffy - to have the whole set! I was really reminiscing yesterday, whilst hiding at home ill. I remember sick days when I was young, watching L&H mornings and afternoons. It would be great to have a SODT appreciation society in Bury. I did a quick search yesterday and found that there were absolutely loads dotted around the country (and the world at that).

21CM - Yes I was "brought up" on Laurel & Hardy during the school holidays and Saturday mornings. The Sons of The Desert groups are called "Tents" and the are named after Laurel & Hardy films. I have all the forms here still with a covering letter by Stan Laurel's daughter, Ida. When I retire from politics in May 2009, I may just start up a new Tent! Do you want to join?

Hang on a minute Hoffy - retire from politics in 2009? Now that's controversial. You could set up a Sons of the Desert political party ~ I bet that should win a few votes. Anyway, if I'm still in Bury in 2009, I will definitely join the L&H appreciation society. However what would be your chosen name for the Tent?

Hoffy said...

How about the "Laurel & Hardy Party?" It's pretty much like that anyway LOL!

What do you mean "if I'm still in Bury in 2009?". Where are you going?

Ah-ah...now that's the million pound question. 2009...well I hope to be living in my French chateau, living off movie rights from my latest novel ;-D
