    Possibly; that neckerchief is an accident waiting to happen- then the flames will spread quite easily to the beard.

    Just found this on my phone from a few months back. Was the most interesting record on a trip round some very disappointing charities. Just noticed the track titles now - "Dance of the Buttocks"?

George, on the other hand is a bit limp all 'round. He looks as if he's saying 'Ooh, get me and my leafy shirt- which is a bit tight in the chest region. Please buy my record, I still need to finish paying off this belt'.

    Brian's belt is very fine indeed, George's looks a bit cheap though, like a bargain bikers' belt.

    Think I might give up buying records and plough the money into belts instead.

    Sounds like heaven to me ...

    (I don't go very often, but this is the first time I've actually seen an LP displayed on any of the 12" shelving they make)
    and they haven't even got it in the right way around. Mind you, assuming it's your only record I suppose it's easy enough to see what it is- won't keep the dust out, though.

    Very definite NO on the jazz LPs. A less confident NO on the Soul 45s - I'm not the most diligent of diggers.

A whole lot of walking for very little in the way of records. Owner was nice enough though. That east coast trip looks great. The family is planning a similar trip next year but Boston south towards Carolina.
    It was a fantastic trip all round. Our daughter is 30 and son 27 now so to have a family holiday was a real bonus too as it's a few years now since we have had one.
