Speaking of meeting someone from AYBS, I thought I was going to meet Mrs. Slocombe yesterday. I was walking through a local department store, and out of the corner of my eye, I saw a woman behind one of the counters that had big, colorful hair. When I looked directly at her, the resemblance was uncanny. Not so much in the face, but everything else, from the hair to her shape to her mannerisms were spot on.

Hey Shadow! Did she work there? If she does, you have to go back and find out if she's a fan! That would be such a hoot if there was an actual Mrs. Slocumbe impersonator/fan working sales somewhere. Snap a pic with a camera phone or something.

Yep; she works there. I will have to see if I can find her again. This is the first time I've seen her. Perhaps she's new?

I would adore to have had John Inman and Mollie Sugden over for dinner and then get drunk on wine, lol. I imagine it would have been so much fun, full of funny and saucy stories, plus they just seemed like great people who you could just hug, lol.

I'd have loved to have met Arthur English. Mr. Harmon appeals to me because he is so normal working class, not trying to put on airs, and thus a great foil to Mrs. Slocombe and Captain Peacock. He always seemed so solid, down to earth, and possessed of common sense. I think Mr. Harmon was probably a nice grandpa and a good chap down the pub.

I don't need to have dinner with any of them, but if I saw any of them out in public, it would be hard not to walk by and say, "Sorry to barge in while you have your snouts in the trough!"

Assuming they were all still alive,

I would like to have a day with Fleur and John. He was my fave in the original, she was my fave in AYBSA. The two were so good together onscreen.

Then a night a partying with Mr. Nash/Harmon/and Moulterd at the local pub.

Then wake up and have breakfast with Wendy and Mollie.

Then leave the place with Ms. Belfridge in one arm, and after a fantasy night with her, come back and snatch Fleur for the long haul.

Mine would have to have been Mollie, just because she worked on so many classic shows that I could listen to her talk for hours and hours about her life as a working actress. I also tend to get on better with older people.

Wendy Richard, I just think she is an amazing actress and women with a interesting story.
But since it's now obviously not possible, Nicholas Smith so I could listen to stories of filming
