The shame...

By mrswoolybill
Brilane, whom heaven forgive, introduced his innocent little orphan Glove to mine. He should have known that mine would be a bad influence. But nobody was to foresee how dreadful things would get. Will we ever live this down?
Please go easy on this, I’ve never done anything like it before. (Which, coincidentally, is just what both Gloves said afterwards).
Apart from a bit of messing about with (literal) cutting and pasting, this also involved some literal table-top photography, with me kneeling on the dining table to take the actual photograph.
For anyone who doesn’t know what this is about, I really wouldn’t know where to begin; check out the first tag...
Thanks for looking,

I can't stop laughing Moira . The thought of you KNEELING on the dining room table is mind boggling and has afforded me another fit of the giggles . I couldn't have managed that position or knelt like that . As for printing that paper must have taken hours . Disgusting display of three in a bed for Easter Ha ha , so much fun . I love it xxxx

A very Happy Easter to you both

What a lot of 'fun time' you have had putting this together with all the little hints between the xx's And do have to agree it has been a well worth early morning laugh! well done for thinking this one up!
Will make sure I don't leave a glove around....

Absolutely excellent Moira.Well worth the time and effort. Would you ask Bill if he managed to get a pic of you kneeling on the table. I suppose you had tried it before to see if it would take your slender weight even under movement.
I understand that Prudhoe is the three in a bed centre of Northumberland and now that it is confirmed by yourself it gets my vote and hope to see more in the Courant next weekend. Have you been appointed as the the recording photographer.
The poor glove in the middle doesn't know which way to turn.

Good morning fellow inmates of the asylum. No Danny, Bill didn't get a photo of me, divorce proceeding would be underway by now if he had...
A word of explanation - I'm rubbish at Publisher, I don't know if I can convert Publisher files to jpgs and to be honest I was too lazy to try. So I typed up the blocks of print in Word, printed them, cut them out stuck them on a sheet and scanned it. I really do find that easier than faffing with the computer...
It took quite a long time to arrange the gloves (pins were involved), sheet and my grey coat on the table; it was only when I had got them to pose properly that I realised the only way I could photograph them was by getting up on the table with them.

Brilliant Moira - like the headlines 'Socks in the City' and 'That Woolybill had a hand in this'. Clever, creative stuff and it really made me laugh, thank you Smile Wishing you both a Happy Easter!

I suppose you've heard the joke about the bull roaming through the fields with a bunch of cows. He comes upon an abandoned glove and says "which of you ladies has lost her bra?"

Danny you've got the wrong idea about Prudhoe. Though a GP told me years ago that Riding Mill is the wife-swapping capital of Tynedale. It's amazing the things that are discussed during a smear test...

I've been very, very busy so haven't had time to get around to epz. I've just looked in to see how my glove had fared on Sunday.
What a carry on, I'm sure that it wasn't brought up to be like that, but of course it is known that when youngsters get caught up in the 'Big City' life, unspeakable things can happen.

Nice manipulation though. I'll catch up soon.
