I`m collecting the whole series of Midsomer murders right now.

I watched the remake of "Hound of the Baskervilles" on Sunday - and knew the
eyes and the voice of the man who played a doctor in it (Not Dr. Watson) -
then I realised that under all the wig and beard lurked John Nettles! I
wouldn`t exactly call him a great actor (he`s always - well - just John
Nettles!) but I always enjoy anything he`s in.

Halloween


Longish story: I was working on the PFH, a door bow kit, and discovered
I'd mis-measured when I began stitching. The motif for one bow loop was
off by an inch (I even had the backstitching in!). My mom, also a
stitcher, was visiting my brother at the time. I called her there to
bemoan my fate. My brother answered. Now, he kind of prides himself on
knowing about lots of different topics. It's very tough to hit him with
something about which he knows nothing. I asked him to pass the
following message to our mom, "I had to frog the whole bow." Hr repeated
it to me in a puzzled tone, then told our Mom, who reacted in a suitably
compassionate manner. He then repeated, "Frog the bow?" to me in the
most baffled tone. <snoopy dance> I stumped my brother!,/snoopy dance.
