#38 “IN A PASTIME PARADISE”

Good morn or evening friends – here’s the wonder of LEJoG Day 38 Day 38 pre-amble I’m quoting a Stevie Wonder track from Songs In The Key Of Life there, of course.

#29 SERENDIPITY!

Welcome to LEJoG Day 29 Day 29 pre-amble Today I arrived in Worcester. I wanted to give the post a title which played on Wodehouse’s most famous creations.

#27 “LIKE A BROKEN PENCIL”

Velcome to LEJoG Day 27 Please accept my appoloagies for the inconweenience Day 27 pre-amble Blackadder II is, for my money, the best and funniest series of my third favourite sitcom.
