Happy Xmas

Tis the last post before Xmas ...
A royal command performance is about to start, the compere has just finished the introduction and welcome...
Unfortunately space does not permit the showing of all the acts taking part in the performance, so here are some of them ....

Herr Beiderbeck gave a dazzling display of virtuosity on the harpscichord, interspersed with witty banter...
The court poet read his latest work..
The singing nuns from the priory of Waldemart sang works by Hildegard of Bingen..
The highlight of the evening were the double act Moribundt and Weiss, fresh from a tour of northern europe - their 'Duke Lobster & Valet' was a rousing success ...
Jives: How is you aunt ?
Duke Lobster: Not very well her nose fell off
Jives: How does she smell
Duke Lobster:: Horrible !
Duke Lobster: I say Jives, do you have the scrolls ?
Jives: No it's just the way I walk....

A Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year to All


  1. A Merry Christmas to all in Wittenberg too!

  2. Moribundt and Weiss make me laugh! The Lobster Duke and Jives, excellent, top hat, old fruit!

    Happy holidays to you and yours!

  3. Wondrous vignette and Merry Christmas to you and yours!

  4. A delightful scene - many thanks! I'm wondering if next year you put on the Nutcracker ballet in your palace stage!

    Merry Christmas!

  5. Splendid vignettes, as always. :-)

    Happy Xmas and New Year.
