Another morning, a Friday, possibly another new beach. Just as well, this one needs a good tidy-up after last night's festivities.

Know wot oi mean?? Before you take the express pedalo over to the beach of faces, let me take you on a Cook's Tour of the new extension, so rapidly and expertly thrown u.... er.... erec.... er.... BUILT!!!!! by Sid no less. In the absence of DI Wyman (who's not even a ghost of his former self these days) Sid has had to bribe the planners AND do the construction all by himself. Well, Sue handed him the nails (once she'd finished polishing them) and ValP provided the cake. These measures were necessary because the naughty step just wasn't big enough any more. There was, at one point, only one frogger left on the beach while the rest of us were crammed in there together, sniggering!

Now to discover his hiding place was good news and even better that he would be able to get his own back.Diggles was still smarting from the tongue-lashing the Baron had given him that summer long ago when they were at school together and he was Von Vinkle’s fag.The CO turned towards the map pinned on the blackboard and promptly knocked his swagger off of the table, as he bent over to pick it up Olgy fainted, Minger gave a startled cry and even Diggles had to stifle a retch as they were given a full on view of where the sun don’t shine. More disturbing was the sight of Tossey Wright’s tongue hanging out and a wild glint in his one good eye.Standing up and turning back to his assembled flyers the Squadron Leader rapped on the black board for attention. “Right you lot, I want Tossey and his chaps to loiter over here to the East and Diggles I want you Minger and Olgy to come in low and hit those sheds with all you’ve got”“But Sir” whined Tossey “why Diggles? Why can’t ‘B’ flight take out those damned sheds?” but he trailed off as the CO turned and gave Wright his best glowering stare.“But Sir?…dontcha But Sir me! Do I have to remind you of the last little outing you had? Do I?”Tossey visibly shrank back into his sun lounger as the CO turned on him and he remembered how he had accidentally shot the CO’s favourite goat.Turning back to the rest, who were now having fits of giggles “Anybody have any questions?” Minger stuck his hand up “Good. Carry on then” and with that the Squadron Leader left the briefing….to be continued… Thu 22 Oct 2009 19:07:08 GMT+1 SproutGhost http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/2009/10/the_beach_130.shtml?page=94#comment516 And me..can I have some as well..what ever it is as I am stuck at 501!
