    Happy Timmer Market Day

    Well, what would have been Timmer Market day anyway.

    I dont suppose balloons smoking fags would be very popular these days.

    Trees are still keeping the tradition alive, but the death of Donald Sinden was a blow to the wood industry. Ham took a dunt in the meat market too at the same time. It would have been like a barbecue if hed been cremated.

    I quite liked Donald Sindon. Was in some half decent programmes.

    He peaked in The Cruel Sea, where he didn't have to act, as Jack Hawkins took care of all the tricky stuff..."It's the war...this bloody war".

    Was Never The Twain, a "sit-com" about feuding antique dealers, where Sindo's rival was one-trick (pit) pony Windsor Davies, the most middle class and mediocre TV 'comedy' ever?

    Did he no play Elaine Stritch's butler in an equally execrable sitcom of the same era?
