Double Acts!!! ;-)

Mention famous double acts,
And many spring to mind!
Do a Google search and see 
How many you can find!

Bill and Ben, the flowerpot men,
Laurel and old Hardy,
Sausages and mash,
Coke... with Bacardi!

Shearer with Sheringham!
( Remember Ninety Six?)
Homes with Antiques
Mascara ...and lipsticks.

Socks go with shoes, 
Chair sits with table
Shirt with matching tie
And Cain goes with Abel.

Where would Ginger have been
If she didn't have her Fred?
And George simply needed
His woman called  Mildred.

Wise needed Morecombe,
Pinky needed Perky
French did well with Saunders
Shove the stuffing up that Turkey!

Mork teamed up with Mindy
Walters laughed with Wood
Paul went to bed with Sindy!
The poor loved Robin Hood!

But those pale into insignificance
When I mention a special pair
Who will go down in history..
With this rag and textile fair!

Cos ...Powell and Van Hasselt
Are the double act of the year!
So raise your glass to both of them
Give them a massive cheer!

They have stormed into the history books
Yes, these two will go far!
With their first class vintage fairs
Three cheers for The Vintage Bazaar!

And if you missed the Giant Rag Fair

Yesterday at Frome
Don't  despair ...the place was packed!
There wasn't any room

Just get yourself to Hampshire
In September... Wintney Hartley
That intrepid pair will be there
For another vintage party!

(Yes, I is really Hartley Wintney) ;-)

And at the Royal Palace,
'One' is in a tizz!
Not so much a mention,
Of Phillip and his Liz!!

Also...rumour has it,
That Charles is feeling iller
 Sal's Snippets did not mention
His other half, Camilla!

Double acts, ah double acts!
You find them everywhere,
But there's none so fine
As our Lizzie and our Clare!! ;-)

Well...that's the Giant Rag Fair
And after it was done,
We strolled over to Frome,
To have a bit more fun! ;-)

 Up St Catherine Hill
Sal, arm in arm with Terry,
Taking in the atmosphere
And being in no hurry.

Lesley, with her Paul
(But NOT the Paul who bedded Sindy!!)
Looking at this'n that,
Before it got too windy!

As we walked along the cobbles,
Picking out the vintage shops,
A real trip into the past,
Frome really is the tops!

After tea and cakes,
They headed off to Devon.
As for us...we stayed the night,
In a 'little piece of heaven.'

But more of that, another day.
I can manage no more rhyme
The footy is on; Spain have scored.
And I simply have no time!
