Bunny's Boxing Day Dip - or the day Bunny had his assets frozen!!

Bunny Hooper "The 1940's Accountant" gives a stoic salute before running into the sea for the traditional Boxing Day charity dip in Cromer, which this year was raising funds for The Matthew Project.

Enjoying a post dip pipe and hot chocolate.

Well done Bunny!!

Merry Christmas from Dead Men's Spex

So the big day is almost here. I hope you are all ready for the seasonal period of over indulgence that is upon us. That all your presents are wrapped, cards sent, turkeys stuffed and cocktail cabinets stocked :oD

Deadman Junior is bouncing off the wall with excitement waiting for the big man in Red to come down the chimney. Like families the world over we will be leaving Santa a mince pie, a glass of sherry and maybe a carrot for the reindeer. Unlike most other families we will also be leaving Santa a spare pair of spectacles just in case he breaks the pair he is always pictured in while negotiating a rather treacherous bend in our chimney. Deadman Junior thinks this is a very good idea and so does the Deadman, because, after little eyes are shut and sleeping I may just slip a business card on the plate next to the sherry on the off chance that our chimney’s not the only one with a wicked bend.

Merry Christmas

Santa comes early to the Deadman residence!!

Hi all, Santa has arrived early at the Deadman's residence bringing a box of Christmas cheer in the shape of 700 old stock frames from the 1950's. As you can see from the photo's below the Deadman and his little elf helper (Deadman junior - 5 years old and dressed from top to toe in green with curled up shoes and a bell on his hat :oD Don't tell social services or else our idea of chimney sweeping business is scuppered !!) have a lot of work in the New Year preparing these lovely little numbers for you all to wear.

Snow business like snow business....

I hope everyone has been staying warm through this cold snap. The only casualty that the Deadman clan has had is that we were unable to make it to the Northern Military Expo where we were supposed to be standing a stall this weekend gone.

Talking of military I have had an interview and profile in this months World War II re-enactors magazine. As you can see it included a lovely picture of Fleur de Guerre and a picture of Bunny Hooper doing his famous Tommy Cooper impression!
