' How many actors does it take to change a light bulb? ' Ginger read. The others groaned.

'Only one. They don't like to share the spotlight.'

Algy reached for his.

"What kind of sweet goes swinging through the jungle?" He looked round the table at the blank faces before supplying the answer.

"Tarzi-pan."

Biggles threw the remnants of his cracker at Algy and read out his own joke:
'What do vampires sing on New Year's Eve?'

'Auld Fang Syne.'

They all looked at Bertie in expectation.

Bertie complied. "What’s a horse’s favourite TV show?"

"Neighbours " Ginger said promptly.

"You watch too many bally soaps, laddie." Bertie threw his joke down in disgust.

The paper crowns were solemnly donned and the men worked their way through a mound of food.

They slumped in their armchairs after that, their Christmas books open on their laps, but not being read.

'I think I'll have a little snooze,' announced Biggles. And he did. All the way to Christmas 2018.

See you next December folks.
