The kid in the bedroom slippers looks impressed...probably likes the strange fabric of the brolly, Bill.
Bill Phillips: or the strange fabric of Chris
If Tiff the headliner, or just the warm up?
Bill Phillips: He is there to disperse the crowd

These are the Dickensian times, yes, I remember a Sir who let brush up weekly his shoes by Oliver Twist, and Oliver often feared to get a hit from his umbrella - but after having done his work finely, he got a generous tip and a broad smile from this gentleman...
Bill Phillips: I have to confess that the only dickens I have read all of is Hard times. I think as it is his bicentenary i will have to borrow one of Kathryn's and read another one!

I must say that the gentleman in the middle really looks the part.
Bill Phillips: I agree...apart from the gentleman bit

Sir Tiff really does not look out of place too much here, although a hat would help complete the scene.
Bill Phillips: He doesn't really belong in the modern world

I do like this Ralph McTell track.
Bill Phillips: Sung by every busker in the country at one time!

Ha ha ha ha ha ha it just gets better. I did not realise that Tiff was so young back then.
Bill Phillips: He has a timeless quality

lol at Ray...the slippers...weird.
Bill Phillips: I often lol at Ray
Chris fits in well.
Bill Phillips: Doesn't he just
So you are older than you look, Tiff? lol! Very clever stuff. (:o)
Bill Phillips: He is older than Durham cathedral

Oh gawd!
Bill Phillips: I get lots of comments when I feature you. You should be pleased
This is the best twiddle ever! I think you should print it, frame it and give it to Chris. Really love it!
Bill Phillips: I shudder to think what he might do if I did
Surely the demands for cardboard cut outs have fallen totally out of fashion.

Nicely done Mr Phillips.
Bill Phillips: not in my bizarre world Richard

Looking well for his age Bill classic song to go with it one of my favourites.
Bill Phillips: Sung by every busker in the land at one time!
The locals seem impressed, a golf umbrella must be a bit of a novelty in these parts.
Bill Phillips: Not as much of a novelty as a golf course probably would be

Hahaha...they look bemused, maybe it was the shock of him appearing in their midst grin
Bill Phillips: He has that effect on me when he appears Martin
Is the chap in the middle Tif's ancestor?
Bill Phillips: no that is Tiff...he is a lot older than he pretends
Best laugh we've had in our household all day, and we've had a good day anyway so far. I am enjoying your twiddling very much, fortunately Sir Tiff seems to have very broad shoulders.
Bill Phillips: If I thought for one minute I offended him I wouldn't do it.......probably grin

fresh from his orchestral performance in the Georgian Garden in Bath Sir Tiff finds time to busk to some shoe shine boys outside Buck Palace! I used to have a pair of slippers like that!
Bill Phillips: i still have
You need to come to Rochester at the time of a Dickens Festival. It might make you want to read another book. Or it might not. It will certainly be colourful.
Bill Phillips: That sounds like a good idea. I have always liked Wilkie Collins but have never really got into Dickens....must try harder!

Haha, all he needs is a cap and he would fit right in smile
The gentleman in the white beard seems a little startled to see such an impeccably turned out dandy in their midst, Bill,
