Merry Christmas [Dec. 25th, 2016|10:02 am]
Tony Grist
We had our main Christmas celebration yesterday at my ex-wife's. Two of my three children were there, all three of their spouses and all three of our granddaughters . My ex-wife's partner is the best cook I've ever known socially.

Someone asked Ailz if we would be observing any Christmas traditions today and she said, "Yes, Tony'll be doing a load of washing."

I was lying in bed last night thinking about what I really, really wanted for Christmas dinner and settled for scrambled egg on toast.

What would Christmas be without comedy repeats on the BBC? I was watching a vintage episode of Dad's Army last night and Ailz came in, sat stony faced for ten minutes, then turned to me and asked, "Do you find any of this funny?" And I thought a while and said, "Some of it."

I didn't watch it, but oddly enough I dreamed last night that I was talking to Captain Mainwaring, and agreeing that everyone in his platoon was a fundamentally nice person (except perhaps Sgt. Wilson).

I watched a bit of the recent film about the making of Dad's Army the other day- and all the actors were giving plausible imitations of their great originals- with the exception of the guy (quite a famous name) impersonating John le Mesurier- who wasn't getting anywhere near- and it struck me that Le Mesurier is one of those actors- and they're very rare- who are literally inimitable and irreplaceable.

I thought the reason I hated that was because I am American. I'm glad to know Ailz doesn't care for it either.

I too did a load of washing on Christmas. As you might imagine without my mother, it's very strange around here.

I've never seen why normal life- with its everyday chores- should be suspended just because it's Christmas.
