Tripping Along The Ledge



Overheard this song in a shop this evening. It was a big favourite of my father’s, which was kind of ironic, since he didn’t actually drink himself. It brought a tear to my eye, I must admit. It also reminded me of a very lame old joke told (I think) by Tommy Cooper…

Bought a train ticket to France. The ticket seller said ‘Eurostar?’ I said ‘Well I’ve been on telly, but I’m no Dean Martin.’

    Remember that joke too but don’t think it was Tommy Cooper – he died in 1984, Eurostar didn’t start running until 1995.I think it might have been Bob Monkhouse.

    Thanks Graham. I stand corrected… It was one of those type guys anyway!
