Oh yes, the armless Intravenous de Milo (that took a moment or 2 to sink in, after I realised it wasn't about that pseudo-Ovaltine called Milo, either of which would be good therapy for those on the Mudcat Recovery Ward 2019, provided it was laced with your SOC (Spirit Of Choice)

Just to let you know the bathing suit area has been newly designated "Sauna o Beach" I thought some of you were still celebrating Xmas until I realized that you were singing "O,
Tanning Balm". A similar misunderstanding once resulted in a balm scare over in Gilead.....

The quality of the food seems to have gotten worse ever since Chef Eatie Gourmet suddenly got sick and "Dishpan Hans" from the cleanup end of things had to temporarily take over under emergency conditions. Even the Green Jello tastes a little soapy. I guess no one told him that the "Wash Your Hands Before You Return To Work" sign also implies rinsing them......

Also beware of "Ernie The Gurney", who takes the hallways at a run and already has a few "X"s marked on the side of his vehicle.....

I don't remember Radio Malt, so it's not an age thing.
However, you can still get several different brands of malt extract (with or without cod-liver oil). You can use it to make a malt loaf, or spoon it into your children if you, and they, are so inclined - it might be nice stirred into hot milk as an Ovaltine substitute.
If we are going to have it in the recovery ward, can we have the version without the cod-liver oil?

My two friends called Susan had Virol, but my mother swore by Radio Malt.
I must have been a paragon of virtue, as I adored anything she dosed me with. Just after the War, the Welfare State made efforts to ensure rickets and malnutrition were avoided in children, so we had all these tasty (to me!) things to supplement our diets.
I loved greens, cabbage and sprouts too. And even secretly ate raw liver when I could sneak some out of the larder. Weird child.

Now where is that Steve? Old Lady has ordered in some very expensive wine for him to taste.
And it looks as if more comfy sofas should be ordered, as snow is forecast and poorly folk will want to sit by the fire.

When I was a child we had government issue orange juice - concentrated, in oblong-shaped medicine style bottles. Much nicer and more nutritious than the orange squash we had when we were older.
My children had Virol (which in our house was called 'sticky-brown-medicine') - a big spoonful each every day.
What I really REALLY liked was gripe water.

I used to love the odd Farley's rusk Jos. My sister was born long after me, and I'd pinch one of the baby's rusks to munch when mother wasn't looking.

I remember those glass bottles of orange juice. Lovely stuff.
What did gripe water taste of? I don't think I ever tried that.

We had National Dried Milk (silvery tin with blue on) which I seem to remember was later found to be deficient in some vitamin or other.

Speaking of hankies, I've recently become aware of that hilarious cartoon with 'Mr Hankey the Christmas Poo'. I watched a tattooing programme on TV and some crazy chap wanted Mr Hankey tattooed on his bottom.

Now my question is, why is he called Mr Hankey? What do hankies have to do with poo?

And speaking of tattoos, would anyone welcome a small tattoo parlour in the Recovery Ward? Any requests and what would one like?
No prizes for guessing mine. A large crumpet, two Siamese cats and maybe a very small Mr Hankey. Lots of space on my ...er...rear end.

(But is it very painful?)

No tattoes for me, thanks: I'm more into tatties.
Have been away from the ward for a while in the serious Burns dept, as is usual for this time of year in Scotland. Fortunately the cough has gone after the double strength Amoxicillin!
Never heard of Mr Hankey, but there is a very funny song by Davie Robertson called "The Hanky Song": chorus:
"There's nothing marks a man in life as plainly as his hanky,
A gentleman's is clean and white, but mine's is ayeways manky".

You have to keep washing the panky out of your hankies. Just ask Nurse Ratched and X-Ray Ted. She's been trying out her X-Ray Teddy, an early Valentines Day gift. Thank God he's been keeping her occupied. I doubt anyone has found a love match for Hurry Gertie over in Therapy, so I still come out hurting more coming out than I did coming in. I tried to beg to the Men's bathroom to hide at Therapy time, but they've been stationing Bedlam Dora outside Mg room to thwart any escape attempts. This place has taken the concept of Crying Therapy to new heights (or is that Depths?), and I hate to see and hear a brown man cry, with the exception of Bobby Blue Bland......

The Lurgy has made a visit to our house, Himself is fine but I have succumbed. Not the worst case I have ever had, but not the best. Gave quilt group a miss this morning, I reckoned the other women didn't want me coughing and croaking all over the table.

A large cylinder of Anti-Lurgy gas has arrived. One blast from the attached mask and all Lurgies are instantly cured.

Sonia Hanke will play Beethoven's 'Emperor' 5th piano concerto later, when she's collected a clean hanky from the Tavern linen room. (There's a large concert grand piano in the adjacent Music Room)

X-Ray Teddy is available for cuddles if one books a session.

Old Lady has made a large nut-and-chocolate sponge with real cream filling and a very nice quiche (home-made pastry, not for Muslims as there's lard and butter in it)
Smiling African Man is already helping himself to an enormous slice muttering "Bismillah" something-or-other (which I think means'Sorry God')

Well, this has been another rough year and I am definately in need of a visit to the recovery ward. As if having my house burn down was not enough to contend with I have also been diagnosed with malignant melamona and am dealing with the aftermath of surgery to remove a couple of pesky moles on my back. A much larger portion was removed than I had expected and with over 20 stitches, I am restricted in my movements in order to promote healing. Gonna step into the recovery ward to lick my wounds...and have some tea and crumpets! Is there any   marmite on site? Put another log on the fire! Let's have a song~

open mike is warmly welcomed by Squiddy, the Siamese cats, the Old Lady, Smiling African Man and all the recuperating guests.
Tea, crumpets, cake and a huge jar of Marmite are set before him, and a soft cushion is gently placed at his sore back.

But Old Lady has her eye on the Marmite - she adores the stuff and will probably nick some later.

Singing (a bit difficult while scoffing all the food!) will start any minute now.
Suggestions for the first song?

Sorry to hear about your melanomas, Openmike, and your house burning down: was that in the recent California wildfires? Hoping for all of the best for you.
As for a song, since Marmite has been mentioned, you could do no better than one of our fellow Mudcatters, Kevin McGrath (McGrath of Harlow) with his "Marmite Song" on how to find this delicacy in a supermarket: chorus "The Bovril's with the gravy, and the Marmite's with the jam."
So here it is, sung by the late Frank Harte: Marmite Song

One can wear what one likes in the hot tub Mrrzy. Or nothing if one prefers. The Old Lady would probably be a terrifying sight without clothes on though, and cause all the convalescents to suffer a relapse, so she will wear her large, baggy swimsuit.

I've just listened to the Marmite Song - excellent and very funny.
It seems to sum up how life is organised doesn't it? "The Bovril with the gravy and the Marmite with the jam."

Husband always finds it odd searching for his pate d'arachide* in Tesco and finding it with the jam.

(*There should be a circumflex over the 'a' but despite lots of kind folk on here explaining how to do it, I haven't mastered my laptop yet in 'foreign'.)

just before The Big Crash I posted this song & it disappeared into the Great Big Hole & was never seen again.

I just found the words (white paper in a plastic sheet protector - how many of those do I have???) so here it is again & the words below have been pasted from my very own copy.

The Skin Cancer Blues (1994) by John Dengate (aka. Solar Melanoma Blues)

Once I had the skin of a newborn child,
Pure and smooth and undefiled.
My blue eyes sparkled like the morning dew
And on my back, just a freckle or two.
Out in the sun with never a care;
Back and belly and head all bare;
No sunscreen, no shirt, no shoes
And now I'm singing the skin cancer blues.

chorus

Oh, it's no mismomer,
Singing the solar melanoma blues.
Fifty-five summers of Australian heat
And now I'm walking down Macquarie Street;
Clutching my referral ...
Must defer to the medical code.
I'm telling you, without a doubt;
They burn and freeze and scrape and cut them out!


I hope they're not malignant ...
I get indignant if I hear that word.
The doctor says; "Son, you'll be fine,
Those beggars on your back - they're all benign".
Be a sensible chap, though:
Buy yourself un petit chapeau (That's a little hat ...)
If I kick the bucket, don't blame the booze;
Sing me to salvation with the skin cancer blues.

chorus

Oh, it's no mismomer,
Singing the Solar melanoma blues.
Fifty-five summers of Australian heat
And now I'm walking down Macquarie Street:
Clutching my referral ...
Must defer to the medical code.
I'm telling you, without a doubt;
They burn and freeze and scrape and cut them out!
