SOME HUMOR FOR A WET AND GLOOMY WEDNESDAY MORNING, hope it’s nicer where u are

Classic saucy seaside postcards images are being relaunched today to mark their 100th anniversary. Businessman Ian Wallace said he is hoping the classic cheeky cartoons, which could soon be appearing on everything from mouse mats to boxer shorts, will give everyone a light-hearted boost in times of economic gloom. Mr Wallace said: “They always look good and they always make people smile. Maybe they’re not to everyone’s taste but if you can’t laugh at Bamforth postcards what can you laugh at? They are classic images which have really stood the test of time”

Mr Wallace, 63, bought the firm Bamforth & Co nine years ago and now owns the rights to more than 50,000 of the postcard images with their pneumatic women, henpecked husbands and voluptuous nurses. But he has waited until the centenary to a sign a licensing agreement, which he is doing today with the Jane Evans Licensing Consultancy at the Brand Licensing Europe Exhibition, held at London’s Olympia

In morning paper and worth opening the day with a laff.  Not certain yet if this will be my only post today.  Too much to do and we’re helping with an elderly friend, semi- shut in etc.  The old family friend also drives me nuts. Or maybe it’s the wife’s kindness.  She, the old family friend, keeps giving us stuff, hardly any of which we have use for. But the wife doesn’t want to hurt her feelings by refusing, and so accepts ‘stuff’ we then have to get rid of.  It’s odd and oddly sad too. For example, when she calls and I answer the phone cos it’s next to me, she’ll always ask if she may, “have a word with the wife.” We visit with her usually on Fridays.  Most of the time just my wife goes when the visits are over an hour long.  So anyway, the old lady calls & asks if on the way over the wife can be so kind as to pick up some milk or eggs on the way.  She can never, ever ask me to pass on so simple a message. No, it has to go direct as though I’m likely to forget it.  Sometimes, like last week, she’ll ask if we can use some tomatoes from her garden.  I told her we didn’t need any thanks, we had just bought quite a few and I don’t use em much so it’s only the wife. And at the moment we’re a bit overbought.  Made no difference at all to her.  When we went over to deliver something for her the next day, she had a bag full of the damn things along with runner beans and carrots and something else I forget exactly what.

Wife brought her an order sheet from the local dairy and told her about the free home delivery service. All the items she could ever need are delivered by them. Not just eggs, milk, bread and butter.  But she’s done nothing about it since being told.  Much easier to let my wife do the odd and small pick up.
Not that I haven’t dropped a hint but it falls on deaf ears.  Wife’s attitude is that someday that could be us and won’t we be glad for help if needed.
Yeah I guess. I see her point but ..... I hope I’m gone before reaching that state.
Darn ..... it’s raining again.  Oh well. We already had our 4 and a half minutes of sun today. Be thankful for that.

Bawdy seaside postcards that sold by their millions before World War Two are to go on display for the first time since they were banned for indecency in 1954.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
