Pru, is that you...?
It’s that time of year again.
About now, someone just has to mention Prunella Scales, and we’re off on a fantasy trip again!
Ever since the lovely lady (Kate) was in ‘Marriage Lines’ all those years ago, when she had a line which went something like this to Richard Briers (George):-
Kate (giggling), “Oh George, when the chambermaid knocked on the door with the tea, you jumped out of my bed, and into the other one...”
...I’ve been hooked!
Fawlty Towers just made matters worse, and the words 'gibbering' and 'wreck' spring to mind every time I see the pic above.
I’m now utterly convinced that all the girls who read this are in fact Prus. Going through the list of all the long suffering visitors, it’s pretty clear to me that Pips definitely is a Pru, because she posted a Pru-Pic some time ago, and she looks like her. Lils always reminds me of Pru, because she manages to be so funny in fewer words than are expected, and she looks like her, Trubes is a well known actress, and therefore probably worked with Pru, and she may well look like her, Hats has all the incisive comment so loved by Sybil (similar looks too, I imagine), Calfy is certainly tipped to be a Pru and there’s plenty of time, Daisers sounded a bit like Pru when we had a chat a few years ago, and the list goes on...
I challenge anyone else on the list to disagree...
