That bird is saying to himself “I can see Mick’s house from up here”

Comment by: Mortarmillbill on 27th November 2022 at 09:35

I thought Mick had gone down south.

She’s left me! I gave her everything, she wanted - tit-bits , rubber band on her leg, a safe place on this ledge and this is how she re- pays me! Wimmin pigeons - they’re all the same!…. Coo! . Here’s another with a lovely iridescent chest….c’mon love there’s plenty room on here..

Now this photo reminds me of Fred Dibnah and that song he used to sing when he was hanging from a chimney.

I think if old hawkeye had a female pigeon up there with him he would soon have it plucked.
There would be that many feathers floating down you would think it was snowing

That’s funny Veronica, made me laugh that did.

Comment by: Veronica on 27th November 2022 at 12:44

Don’t think he would be that fussy Syd. He’s lonely after all…. as they say beggars can’t be choosy…

I forget sometimes it’s Master Mind on here! My old glaucoma eyes only saw a puffed up pigeon! I’m definitely no expert in the ornithology field, even though my dad bred birds ( little ones) I used to feel so sorry for them in their cages. Comical isn’t allowed Dtease but keep posting yours. They make my day.,;o))

Tom, are you meaning Fred’s signature tune. “The carnival of Venice.” A good rendition of which I have in my collection by The U.S. navy band.

"That bird is saying to himself “I can see Mick’s house from up here”
I thought Mick had gone down south."...with respect to DTease and MortermillBill...This hawk has terrific eyesight....!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!...Hmmmmm...

Once and for all Mick the Knife is still living in the boundaries of Shangri - La Shevvy.! All we need now is JH saying he doesn’t live in the boundaries of Shangri La as that is not in the realms of Shevvy. …..

There’s nowt wrong with thi een Veebs .
Yon’s a pigeon .

Comment by: Veronica on 27th November 2022 at 20:03

Well I never…. Syd Snot is usually an authority on these matters Ozy.

Comment by: DTease on 27th November 2022 at 20:41

This is not just any pigeon Ozy this is an Aspull pigeon and they only eat upside down pies.
Mick knows, Mick will tell you.
They are still inhaling those exotic tobacco mixtures.
Far out man!

Comment by: Edna on 27th November 2022 at 21:14

Good photo Dennis. That's not just an Aspull photo, I've seen it in Whelly!!!

Comment by: . Ozy . on 27th November 2022 at 21:49

I’ve yet to be convinced that you haven’t been at the ganja yersel’ DTease

……..only jokin’ mate…….

( or bloody well am I ? )

Incidentally Cyril , just seen your link re: the Beezer . Haven’t heard of 90% of the characters listed , but had I been part of a band in the 60s , I would have insisted that we named ourselves …
… “ Hornet Wilson and his educated insects “…

… Failing that , it would have to have been …
… “ Mr Licko and his lollipops “…

Haa ha haaa ha haaargh!

Bugger !!!! I’ve gone and got ham an’ pineapple pizza all over mi vest now wi laffin’ that much.

Regards . Mr Licko .

Comment by: Veronica on 27th November 2022 at 23:20

I notice the female characters aren’t mentioned…what about Keyhole Kate and Beryl the Peril?! If I remember Dennis the Menace had a girly counterpart with spiky hair and the same red and black striped jumper. I can’t remember her name though - perhaps it was Denise. (Cyril will know) …9

Comment by: . Ozy . on 27th November 2022 at 23:56

If it's female characters you’re looking for Veebs
You’ll find loads of them in the “ School Friend “ or the flippin ‘ “ Bunty “
…………crikey ! ………..
What’s going on with this here female emancipation I ask myself ?
Nowt on telly lately apart from wimmin either playing footy , playing rugby , or knocking the c**p out of each other in the ring .

Where’s it all going to end ?

Next thing , they’ll be demanding the right to vote I shouldn’t wonder .

Comment by: Anne on 28th November 2022 at 08:52

Veronica…. Was it Minnie the Minx?

Comment by: Veronica on 28th November 2022 at 11:22

Yes Anne I had forgotten about her. I meant the characters in the ‘comical’ comics. The School Friend was a bit more staid. I used to get that one. I think the female Dennis came later on.

Comment by: Veronica on 28th November 2022 at 13:27

In fact she might have been trans-gender.

Comment by: Cyril on 28th November 2022 at 21:31

Anne you are correct with Minnie the Minx and her name was Hermione Makepeace, no wonder she rebelled. Veronica she was in the other link I put on yesterday under the Beano characters. No one talked of being or probably not even knowing about transgender then did they.
