Dulltown, Europe: Today’s honoured guests are the Sepp Blatter lookalike twins Maurice and Maureen Thwatt. Welcome! Do come and sit next to me on the sofa for the rest of tonight’s show…

DSCN3684Aha… here’s another rather colourful photograph of mine. It was taken in the Yorkshire seaside town of Bridlington on a pleasant day out last October. Gosh, there are plenty of eyes in this picture! Oh, what fun there is to be had! Come inside, give us your money… My word, isn’t it loud in here?… Can I smell hot dogs cooking? I wonder if they’ve got one of those old-fashioned ‘crane in a glass case’ things where you twiddle a couple of wobbly wheels on the front and almost pick up valuable, but slippery objects, perhaps a nice Swiss watch?… Oh, it’s so loud in here! Come on, let’s step back outside for a moment. Oh, look up there, there’s someone who almost looks like Frank Sinatra… and what about these funny beasts here at ground level? I see that the one on the right is sleeping, or perhaps sulking, and not feeling up to facing the crowds today… Still, his pals, the cheery tractor and the moon-faced aeroplane are putting on an enthusiastic show for the punters… Hm, I do like Bridlington, I think I’ll come here again, but I prefer it off-season, when it is a bit quieter, and when there’s a salty autumnal nip in the air…
