I suspected as much. A wee tincture of some sort...

Aye, a little bit of this, a little bit of that and a little bit of the other can produce great results...



...in a limited number of cases.

One wonders whether her obvious decline was caused by a little bit of this, a little bit of that or a little bit of the other. One needs to know which to avoid!

I suspect quite a lot of the other...

Ah, potions, lotions, unctions and ointments: Florrie ministered to many in their hour of need. Just in case she nips in for a cuppa and a slice of Battenburg feel free to avail yourself of this sage advice...



...works every time. Oh, you could ring 111 and keel over whilst you're waiting to be connected to the next operator: "please do not attend the practice if you have a health-related condition"...

I'd still collect the 200, pay for at least a fraction of meself to be cremated. Ah, the purifying flames - bloody hell they've got their work cut out...



...ker-junk. Someone forgot to oil the wheels, typical.

Although I always preferred dear Claire Rayner, who habitually concluded her advice with an urgent, "Will you do that for me, luvvie? Will you? Tell me you'll do that for me, luvvie!"

Frankly, couldn't be arsed meself - rather toddle down the road for some 9% lager and some knock-off baccy of dubious pedigree. Heavens to Betsy, what can have occurred?..



...they sure had some rollicking rail-track fun back in the day.

I'll bet old Heinrich Biber enjoyed a tipple (or several, judging from Battalia a 10), especially when he celebrated Another birthday!. The toxic fermentations of Florrie no doubt contributed not a little to the conviviality...



...bottoms up!
