Our Own Old Brit New Year Honours ...
Loyal regular readers may remember that last new year we decided to follow Her Most Royal Britannic Majesty Queen Elizabeth's example and produce our own 'New Year Honours'. Today, we're pleased to proudly present this year's list.
M'Lords, ladies, gentlemen and all & sundry others whom it may concern -- please be upstanding and pray silence for an all important, imminent announcement.
Wherein, we have great pleasure and pride (without prejudice), to announce and bestow our very own Old Brit New Year Honours.
For continued unstinting bravery, support, saint-like patience, loving loyalty, continuing encouragement, inarguable integrity, intermittent tittering, (occasional) commentorial temperance and undying, right honourable commitment to truth-telling -- it has today been hereby decreed that most well earned and unarguably richly deserved, official aristocratic British titles of the realm are hereby and henceforth to be implemented with immediate effect, upon each and every respected & revered regular at This Old Brit's and Richard's blog.
Implementation of aforementioned decree is hereby commanded and duly authorised this 30th day of December in the year of good grace 2007.
And, may milady of great fortune, good health, much wealth and eternal happiness speed unto thee and thine - and all others who have so steadfastly and serially sailed so similarly close to the wind - as wot we lot 'ere at our blog 'ave.
With bells, whistles, multicoloured silk ribbons and beautiful, blooming big bows on ; to be worn with pride.
N.B. Batteries not included.
Cash only -- without exception in the form of used, low denomination, non-sequentially numbered notes in plain brown envelopes, preferably via 1st class Royal Mail 'Recorded' or 'Registered' Delivery.
* Seriously, thanks so much for sticking with us - even when it hurt to. And may the coming new year bring you and all your loved ones nothing but health, wealth and happiness.
