OWLS About That Then?

My new chum, lovely Boredstares author Plain Jane Double-Barrelled, has sent me an invite to Murder at Christmas this Saturday.

The performance is in aid of Thanet OWLS. Nothing to do with hooters, OWLS run a volunteer staffed phone line for people who need support or someone to talk to at difficult times of their lives. As they say on their website:

Our service is completely confidential. Volunteers are available to receive telephone calls every evening from 7.00pm until 10.00pm. Callers who leave messages on our answerphone at other times will be contacted that evening by a Thanet OWLS volunteer.

We are pleased to listen to any kind of worry or problem and never consider any anxiety too large or too small, complicated or trivial.

A splendid cause then, and well worth supporting at this time of year when many of us Thanetians will be all alone in their cliff top mansions, with nothing but a Blu-Ray DVD player and 42 inch flat screen Sony for company. It's only 15 quid, so call the ticket line now: 07880 627211!

I'm not sure that 'Overwhelmed, Worried, Lonely and Sucidal' (I've seen that on their ad on the backs of buses) persons should really be watching a play involving murder!!!

Oh, the above "bus reader" is very droll. Especially when the charity helps so many, and needs funds so much. But he can read... if only, buses.

Isn't that woman from Last of the Summer Wine involved in this, the former Mrs Hoser? Let's hope it doesn't strike any 'bum notes'!
