Haha, you should send these scripts in to the writers of soap opera's - I'd be more inclined to watch if these were the storylinesHaha - thanks very much
Again - thank you It's always really nice to read kind messages like this; I'm not trying to be one of these finescale modellers with everything correct and accurate, but I've tried at least a little bit.
Seeing as the Oldmoor drama never ends, I thought I should update listeners with as to what's being going on...
Oldmoor's in a bit of a state at the moment. There's chaos everywhere - in the bakery, the price of iced buns has gone up from 50p to 86p per pair; in Mrs Miggins' shop, wool prices have forced her (that and her greedy tendencies) to put her prices up from an average £5 per ball of wool to £7.52. The biggest drama, however, has been at Oldmoor Junction station, where an outing full of care home residents are shocked to hear BR isn't around any more: many a cup of tea was spilled and at least one digestive biscuit was lost. The police have been called to the scene but, due to the lack of toilet facilities at the station, they've nothing to go on.
In the Crown & Anchor, Dave Hatley is busy organising a very special event indeed. Mr Miggins has organised a special candlelit supper for him and Mrs Miggins to celebrate their 74th wedding anniversary, and he's booked the whole pub. It's cost him a fortune, hence him celebrating their 74th anniversary: when Mrs Miggins finds out the cost of it all, Mr Miggins is going to be a very endangered person indeed!
Mr and Mrs Miggins arrive at the pub on time for their dinner. Dave has set everything out just as Mr Miggins had requested - just as at home, the pair are sitting in separate rooms and not talking as they eat. Mrs Miggins is less than impressed - so much so that she accidentally starts choking on a bourbon biscuit. Mr Miggins rushes over to save her from the inferior confectionary item in her throat and all is well. Mr Miggins has hated bourbons ever since an incident on the seafront at Whitby in 1964 - he won't tell anyone why, apart from the fact that the story involves a lighthouse, fish and chips, and a crayon.
As their special evening out draws to a close, Dave messes up. Instead of giving the bill to Mr Miggins, it gets sent to Mrs Miggins' table. Birds took to the skies throughout Oldmoorshire as the shrieking voice of Mrs Miggins calls out "Barry! HOW MUCH?!"
And that, dear viewers, is where we shall end this story. If we go any further, we might end up hearing of a pub brawl between two pensioners and that wouldn't be suitable before the watershed; false teeth may fall out and get lost.
