" Twelve O' Clock and No Sign Of Dick!"

Theatre Clwyd Panto Aladdin.......great fun.....even the Prof got up and danced at the end! 

I'm running late today.
The dog walk around the village took over an hour this morning, as numerous encounters meant numerous chats along the lines of  how was Your Christmas ? and What did you do for New Year's Eve? 
"Odd Bob" wanted to know about  The Avian Flu Threat, which was a nice change and it took me ten minues to go through the plot of Theatre Clwyd's Aladdin with villager Mandy  over on the village Green so much so that Winnie got overly bored, slipped her collar and started to walk home by herself.
She's such a Diva....
And before you all shriek with worry...I must say I don't worry about Winnie and traffic, for she has actually learnt that she can only cross the main road when she hears the Pelican Crossing alarm! No alarm no crossing......
She's brighter than she looks!

I am presently making a lamb gravy for homemade Shepherds'  Pie for supper. Then it's " Operation Christmas Decoration Removal followed by the bathing of the Welsh terriers (post kennels).
Work has asked me to go in for an extra shift........
I've told them nicely to bugger off.

  1. You will make an excellent Widow Twanky at next year's Trelawnyd Memorial Hall production of "Aladdin" - to raise funds for disabled starving orphans and injured pets... directed by Christopher Burton.

  8. It's funny how I used to look forward to the holidays and enjoyed all the fuss ... now they are nice for a day or two then I want it all gone. I need a village to walk through .. that's the problem.
    Happy New Year to All !

  9. Re your title, when Elizabeth Taylor was married to Richard Burton she once told an interviewer that she always referred to her husband as Richard because if she called him "my Dick" she got too excited. True story.

    3. I didn't read J's comment until after I put the above up. He's not the only one with his pantos in a twist.

    4. According to Wishy Washy the Emperor loved to hold one of his biggest balls so that everyone could see the spectacle

  16. My last Christmas pantomime was when I was a still in school, many years ago, fun times, this one looked hilarious.
    I read over at Yorkshire Pudding's blog that you have once again received the prestigious Laughing Horse Award for your excellent blog, Congratulations you truly deserve it !
    Ooh Winnie, please still look left and right before crossing :)

  17. Haven't been to a Panto for years, but the last time we went, I had more fun watching the excitement and the sheer joy on the faces of the youngsters as they got involved. They were standing on their seats yelling all the old favourites like "Look out behind you" ! Such a pleasure to know that the magic was still there.

  18. I had no idea what a 'panto' was at first - thought it was something to do with underwear ...

  19. Sounds like a wonderful day in the village. We de-Christmas'ed yesterday, this morning I found the one item we missed, we always miss something.

  20. Don't you just hate it when work interferes with life! Just say no! (sometimes, at least)

    Good girl Winnie, for learning how to cross safely.

  21. Now you're GOT to video that for us - Winnie waiting for the Cross Now signal!! You'll be an internet sensation!!

  22. I took my eldest Grandaughter to see 'Aladdin' at our local theatre. It was great fun. I never realised that panto can be so therapeutic!

  23. I see "Jasmine" is suppose to be Chinese, just like the original tale

  24. What gorgeously bright costumes! I had one dog years ago who was very bright and a bit of a handful when young. When i was at work she would sneak away from my housemates at home and go the one block to get down down to the beach, but to cross the busy coastal road to get to the water, she would wait and cross with a human, any human then spend the day there having fun. I would have to go get her when I knocked off work and she was always unscathed and unrepentant. :D

  25. Just want to wish you and the Prof a happy and healthy New year, I'm a bit late and although I don't always comment I do read all your posts love reading about the dogs and Albert.

  26. A lovely catch up John, so glad you enjoyed the Panto. Winnie deciding to walk home alone made my day. My niece told her dad ( my brother ) " It takes Auntie Penny three hours to get home...she knows everyone ! "

  27. Sounds like you have plenty to do without taking on an extra shift at work! Good for Winnie for knowing how to walk home and navigate traffic. Unfortunately Olga does not have this talent. She will plow heedlessly into traffic if I am not there to stop her.
