Being Friday the 4th of April, 2014 ...

Tonorrow may rain, sang Paul.
Hopefully this will settle all that Sarahan dust that has been polluting our atmosphere ...

Nevertheless, Roger insisted on taking us on a military excursion to the banks of the Nile ...

This person was inappropriately attired for such an expedition ...

He taught her gymnastics
and dressed her in tights ...

Did you know that the leotard was named after this famous French acrobat ... ?

Jules LĂ©otard, (1838-1870)

How Ken knew that, or why ... we can but wonder!

Lucy went, "Yee-Ha!"

There was only one storm upon the ocean ...

La Girona, of the Spanish Armada, shipwrecked off the Antrim Coast, 1588.
Artist? Citation awaited.

There were no deaths, and nobody drownded ... in fact nothing to laugh at at all!
(Apologies to Marriott Edgar.)

Despite Dogsbody's efforts to control events, there was much foolishness.
Confusion, however, was kept to a minimum.

At 22.47 hours Berry expressed a desire to go home, so Roger and Mick constructed a ladder ...

... shall shine the traffic of Jacob's Ladder
pitched betwixt Heaven and Charing Cross.

That solo was recorded a couple of years ago.
It's even better when complimented by
Mick's fiddling.
