45/2? As there are no months with 45 days, Bri, this doesn't make sense.

Re: Phoenix's Future Plans

Just a piece of additional information on Edward Marston's output, or to put it another way, verbal diarrhoea. According to the biographical blurb, he has been a full-time writer for over forty years, and is a former chairman of the Crime Writers' Association. He has produced 52 novels across six se...

Re: Phoenix's Future Plans

It was certainly a future plan on July 24th, as I went to London on the 25th to spend a week with Andrew. I only got back by train at 6.15 this evening, which explains why I haven't posted any comments recently. Having read this evening the contributions made during my absence, there aren't any to w...

Re: What comics did you buy today?

Got one of the better Dandy Beano reprint books from today's car boot sale. DANDY BEANO Great stories from the first 50 years, well worth the pound I paid. You can't be accused of hanging about there, abacus, can you? I just checked my copy, and it only came out in 1990. I might read it when I come...

Re: Phoenix's Future Plans

I might get some clarity tomorrow when my issue of The Guardian and I go to the White Hart for my leisurely lunchtime pint because Karen, one of the barmaids, used to moonlight regularly in the Copperhouse. Karen wasn't absolutely certain but she thought that the Copperhouse got shut down because t...

Re: Rover free gifts wanted

I get the impression that this thread is going nowhere, although on the other hand, I would be delighted to learn that I am wrong.

Re: Looking for first appearance of Miss Bigger

Can anyone please provide a scan of Wee Sue after she was moved into the "Old Friends" slot during the Tammy & Jinty merger 1981-82? Regrettably I can't help, Briony. I have 12 issues in 1981, plus duplicates in some cases, the latest being 12 September, but the heading block on all of them is TAMM...

Re: What comics DIDN'T you buy today?

Sorry Derek but I have to confess the "furious" line is from Mel Smith and Griff Rees Jones. Smith being in a gorilla costume. I would never have known if you hadn't told me. I've just got back from watching St Erth Primary School's production of Mary Poppins , which was put on in the assembly Hall...

If he did that it wouldn't be wild it would be furious. :) That is an excellent reply, Steve. Well thought out! Sorry about the delay in replying, but I only waited in long enough this morning to take delivery of the full set of Harry Potters, which were being tracked on my computer. I didn't get m...

He's probably bought it for a pittance at a car boot, and thinks its eBay sale price will pay his Saturday bar bill.

Re: We Are United/Limp Along Leslie Help Required

"Changing the back story", eh? Thanks for clearing that up for me, Andy. Not something I would ever approve of, though. Sorry for the delay in replying but I've been having a couple of jars in The Star pub in st Erth with Russ, Rach, Alex, Jordan, his partner, Kerry, their daughter, Ava, and Kerry's...

Re: We Are United/Limp Along Leslie Help Required

I've just made my periodic, albeit infrequent, visit to rivertonunited's We Are United/Limp Along Leslie thread, to find out how much progress he has made on his book/pamphlet, only to discover that his last visit, at least the last one he signed in for, was on Monday 18 April 2016. So either he is ...

Re: What comics DIDN'T you buy today?

Mind you my mate Steve is a Spurs fan and has recently moved to Leyland, Lancs. I wouldn't mind moving there myself as London no longer feels like home. I can easily imagine an Enid Blyton title 'Five Go Insane In Leyland' . Having shaken the dust off my northern shoes, not too difficult as I have ...
