"Gordon, you really can't dig for oil with a, shall we say, slightly on the short-sided implement."
It may have been reference to my beak and I felt a little affronted. There has been much excitement in the Press lately about huge oil reserves nearby, and let's be honest, it was definitely worth a try. Drongo has been sporting a quite realistic-looking Stetson that he made out of a primrose leaf.
"Now are you roosting comfortably? Pauly Dear, do stop pecking Harry's bottom like that! It is very off-putting!"
"Well I met up with my old Buddies, Auntie Bella, Mandy and Pauline in London. It started off a bit rainy - and windy too. But by the time we got to Trafalgar Square the sun came out and it was beautiful weather for the rest of the day.

Don't tell anyone that Gordon, will you."

"And you will never believe it, but Ian Fleming lived next door at one time. "
Haa! I have read his books - 'The Man with the Golden Sebright' and 'Goldclaw'. Two of my favourites. Action packed. Yes!
"And Mozart lived down the road."
Aaah! Drongo Vanni and all that.
"Then we had to sadly say our farewells again - but there is always next year to look forward to!"
I really can't wait. Gordon xxx
