I don't wanna be the Pope,

if, your the Pope,

You could never elope,

or go fishing for Tope,

That was nice and relaxing to watch Fugs and I am feeling very chilled now. 

Saying that yours is the first post I've read for over a day so it may be short lived <smiley_winky_giggle_and_all_that>
 
Your other post just remnded me abut the very tuneful chap who used to come down our avenue with his horse and cart when I was young.

 

Question........I can understrnd why he shouted 'rag' but why 'bone' ?  Anyone know ?
