I see you still haven't mastered the spell checker John. I suggest you get help, your last posting was quite unintelligible.
It's good to squawk!

All this talk abot dragging up,you must leave your hobbies of the board James.

John your talk at trying to be some kind of 200 year old P&J man is not very impressive,oh and by the way when you made that Punch which has appeared in your ident recently were you waching the loard of the Rings,it seems to look like an Ork!
Im above all this!!

Oh, dear, lowest form again, My Punches are like me, Individual. Yes, they are more 'Impish' But, like all my gear, they are made personally, and therefore reflect My personality! PS. I'm only 199, if you don't mind. :wink:-Beyond which, I refer you to my earlier comment.

Reflect your personality,you said not me!

Have you been looking at Mayhews Old London and trying to take some of the text out and using it in your postings!

Im glad you are only a 199,most Punch men think about retirement at that age I have found!

I always understood that a part of being a true Punchman was the ability to invest a part of oneself into the dolls, making each show 'The same but different' I know that my views on some bits of the Punch history are not in agreement with everyone. This could be since a lot of it comes from conversations with old people of various persuasions rather than from books, However, I have always tried to be a listener as well as a talker, The 'parler' I know is mainly from old fairground showmen, not books, a few of the Northern showman families still use it, (as I do) to communicate near the public , but in private- very handy for security! Beyond which, I take a pride in my gear, Every last stick and brushstroke is mine. I will gladly accept critisisum from anyone who can say the same. My avatar is My Punch, Not a seasonal ventriloquist's doll!

I think I can hear the sound of a cage being rattled !!!

I love seeing individually carved Punches, and noteing how every craftsman interprets the physical characteristics of our hero. Fred Tickner Punches looked a little like Fred, Chris Sommerville's Punch has a different look to Geoff Felix's. Richard Coombs has a magnificent one !! It would be a great shame if they all looked the same, (although Bryan Clarke may not think so !)

What's wrong with having an impish Punch? I thought that was one part of his nature.

P.S. Are you really 199 ?
Kind regards
