' it would be better if you scratch my back and 'l'll scratch yours'...,

Looks like they are in danger of disappearing up their own exhaust pipes!

Jeremy and Theresa.

Then Theresa will disappear into the sunset
after all the 'scratching'!

Their swansong?

They are NOT scratching, they are sleeping.

I'm very upset, 'cos it's really a farce
To be sleeping like this
With ones head up ones a---

You are not telling me anything I don't already know O Fount of all knowledge Alan...A bit of humour in what they look like they are doing that's all... Don't get your feathers ruffled!

Echoes of the Dead Parrot sketch there Alan.

Howard and Marina in disguise. "I think we've really cracked it this time, Marina"...... "OHHHHH, HOWARD!"

Does anyone remember the saying ' Go 'n' run a duck - (till it quacks') ? I know my mother used to say it years ago - I have never heard it since until a short while ago. I nearly collapsed laughing as it was a very elderly lady who was being teased by a chap. She wasn't standing any nonsense from him!

I seem to recall it Veronica. And I've just discovered a TS Eliot line which surely sits alongside your lovely: "Lor-love-a-duck, it's the missus!".
Thanks.

Thank you Philip - forgot to say what a very interesting photo of the ducks.
Must say I was 'put off' TS Elliot with 'The Wasteland'. I heard a recording of him reciting it many years ago....

No problem Veronica. I gave the recording a play a few moments ago, and Strewth! . . . it isn't half treacly, . . . nay, . . . nor is it for me. And nor, is the poem familiar to me?, but I'll probably give that a decent whirl later. Take care.
