feet off the table!


This photograph cheers me up no end as I push through the pain barrier to submit the annual Tax Return. The image has been shared with the Tweetosphere via the ever excellent @brumpic. It shows Dirty Harry looking bamboozled with what might be the Albany Hotel’s bar menu, c.1967. One can only imagine the array of succulent Brummie dishes on offer – Faggots & Peas, Suet-Crusted Hotpot, Spam Fritter and Chips, etc.- no doubt garnished with the obligatory sprig of wilted parsley and topped off with lashings of HP. For pud, Spotted Dick with Condensed Milk, surely? (I imagine curry would’ve been too radical to include at this point). Let’s hope Mr.& Mrs.Clint enjoyed their visit and that he didn’t get told off for rocking on his chair.
