Hi BigJ,

Congratulations! You must have a huge cellar (or loft?) and a good filing system. Most of my old copies of Sing! and Sing Out! are as long gone as ol'Lost John - but then, I would keep lending them out to people.

Still,it's nice to think that the song itself is still in circulation and amusing people after all these years. I wonder why? - does this survival reveal something discreditable about our sense of humour?

And on that subject ...

Q: What's the difference between a folkie and an endowment insurance policy?

A: Eventually, the policy will mature!

Wassail!
