I've been away for a little time Dear Readers, but now i'm back and have much to catch up on.
Whilst I am preparing my reports for you .. a little light entertainment in the form of Sir Norman Wisdom in one of my favorite all time comedy clips from the 1953 classic British comedy - Trouble in Store.
Norman, a lowly stock clerk at the thinly disguised Burridge's department store, is constantly in trouble with head of the store, Mr. Freeman. He overhears a conversation and misinterprets it as promotion to store windowdresser.
Eager to show off his talents - he soon realises that windowdressing can be a great deal of fun (something we have all known for many years) and of great entertainment to the general public.
Entering into a visual joust with the current upputy Head of Windows (do we see anybody we know here?), the hilarious Wimbledon type tournament ends in a plate smashing riot.
Norman as the maverick windowdresser that we wish we could all be just for one day!
