Great to hear from you Thor and hoping things are progressing with the book.

Just taught the teachable Freddie moment you and Lee shared with me about 150 pages back. Since that time I realized that I could also use this phrase: "Fans of Freddie's friends forever" to teach alliteration:)

And I would like to include Shaun as he was friends with Phoebe and Fanelli as well as Freddie's favorite love - Jim!! Enough with alliteration.

Hope everyone has a great weekend and Happy Mother's Day early to all the mother's out there!!

Glad to hear you're still with us, Thor, thanks for chiming in. "Getting this book to press"...hmmm does that mean you've found a publisher?? :)

Also, here's an interesting video I've found recently: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8LM3DQ5YcuQ

It's basically edited clips from the Garden Lodge tapes most of you have probably already seen, but there are some bits in there that were new to me. I particularly liked the fact you can hear Freddie complaining about the showers to a guest at some point (I remember an Ask Phoebe where Peter talked about how Freddie was continually frustrated by the fact that nobody could build him a working shower at GL).

koala I have seen this , we are all on the ball lol. One thing I found is the the 'freddie and jim smile at each other as I couldn';t spot this, it's just to dark . I just see Freddie come out of the Kitchen with a bottle of champayne and jim go into the kitchen lol

I love Freddie's expressive hands when he talks about the tiles :)

Doughnut, I remember squinting real hard at that part but not being able to see anything either - I choose to believe that the smile really happened, however, lol. And I completely agree with you about Freddie's expressiveness. He's so enthusiastic when showing people the house in these clips, it's adorable.

Glad to see you are still around Thor! Sending positive vibes to you and Lee daily.

Also hope Shaun will come around again soon.

Speaking of Garden Lodge showers; anyone else feel ridiculous anger about that? I mean, Freddie deserved to have an awesome shower damnit! All the garden lodge boys deserved to have an amazing hot shower whenever they wanted! Wth Lol

Yeah that was bizarre about the showers, maybe it was something to do with the age of the plumbing, it was a very old house :)

Great to hear from you Thor! Looking forward to the book!

Welcome Selkie

I wouldn't feel too bad about the shower situation at Garden Lodge. Freddie may have wanted to have them there, but we know how much he LOVED his bubble baths!

Selkie,I couldnt imagine taking a bath and not a shower baths dont get you clean .A shower does.You are basically bathing in your own dirt.I hate it too for Freddie.If he had one I bet it would be the nicest shower ever installed at those times.
