Woolsthorpe Manor 3

Here we see a jolly Tifflet trying to re-enact the historic moment when the apple fell. We didn't have the heart to tell him that April is far too early for apples in the UK.....It had taken long enough to explain that this tree and apple story had nothing to do with William Tell

He seems a happy Tifflet, Bill...probably not heard about Brexit yet...
Bill Phillips: They are simple creatures Ray. Just like Tory supporters
Perhaps it's better an apple doesn't hit him on the head, anyway!
Bill Phillips: The only thing that would suffer would be the apple E. Now it it were a pork pie...

That clip is brilliant, Bill; and that fellow looks as if he has come out of Lady Chatterley
Bill Phillips: I am not quite sure how to take the second part of your comment Lisl

and you forgot the first apple story in the paradise- I am s ure that Tifflet had followed Eve, too. A funny picture!
Bill Phillips: Now that's an idea Philine...a Tifflet in a figleaf

I'm pleased to see fencing erected now to prevent further health and safety breaches. Tifflet should have been wearing a high viz vest, and hard hat.
Bill Phillips: He is expendable
Ha ha I love re-enactments Bill. I thought I saw the apple, which has bounced off Tifflet's head quite a long way. I had forgotten that song.
Bill Phillips: We used to sing it to Joseph.....
Old apple trees and old things in general assume funny postures in their dotage.
Bill Phillips: I will take your word for that Mary
And it isn't even to original tree but a cutting grown many years later!
Bill Phillips: Well yes it is but don't let that spoil a good story Brian

Did he fall out of the apple tree??? I am confused here. Or was he attacked by an apple, or did he eat too many apples... (makes you weird also... PHEW, No William Tell then?? too bad, I would have loved to see the show.
Bill Phillips: A apple fell on Newton's head and this gave him the idea about gravity. Had the Tifflet fallen out of the apple tree history would not have been interested
I thought he was practising for some esoteric early English dance! The Andrews Sister - my goodness, I remember hearing them on what we called the wireless during and after WWII
Bill Phillips: My dad used to call it steam radio! I remember when the wireless became the transistor radio and the world as we knew it ended grin
