She ran down the forest slope.
The forest of talking trees,
They used to sing about the birds and the bees.
The bees had declared a war,
The sky wasn't big enough for them all.

The PBS shows are pretty good (the early ones are better than the later ones) but the BOOKS are fabulous....go down to your library and check out The Code of the Woosters, and prepare to giggle, laugh, smile, and snort all the way through. Much of the first season on PBS was, if I recall correctly, based on Code of the Woosters.

Yeah, I think it would be a good idea.  Problem is: I'm going to be on holiday near the end of August, so I might have to get someone to fill in organising for a week if we're sending out after then Smiley

I never read the books though I saw all the Jeeves and Wooster on PBS does that count?

To be honest, I've only read a couple of the short stories (and Cocktail Time), but I've seen repeats of the TV series with Fry and Laurie over and over Wink

I'd love to do this swap if it has a due-date close to mid-Sept - August is going to be fairly hectic for me.

I like Jeeves, but my favorite PG Wodehouse books are the Blandings books - those crack me up everytime.

I really wish I could do this swap, but I'm about to begin my fall swap hiatus (two weeks of vacation, followed by the fall semester of graduate school while working full-time).

I agree with reethi--the Blandings Castle series is probably even funnier than the Jeeves and Bertie stories, and I say that as a genuine Jeeves and Wooster fanatic. 

My all-time favorite Wodehouse, though, are the Mr. Mulliner books.  They are the basis for most of the Wodehouse Playhouse sketches; the WP DVDs are available through Netflix or at your better-supplied public libraries.  You could probably also buy them somewhere, but like I said, I'm in grad school.

Damn, I didn't see this before I assigned partners.  Still want to join in?  Because I'm sure we can shuffle something about Smiley

Well, as co-organizer of this very quiet swap (what are you all up to, you rummy old eggs?) I thought I'd remind you all that sendout is coming right up on the 16th, and if you need more time, please let teraspawn or me know, okay? Thanks everyone!

I'm crafting frantically...it's hard because each time I go hunting for an image or a Wodehouse quote, I wind up hunkering down for a literary detour.......aaahhhhhh! Time spent with Wodehouse is never wasted!

Yahoo! I'm just back from the post office! And they had the NERVE to NOT be open when I got there!!!!!

BUT, they had one of those cute kiosk thingies that would handle it all for me without a living breathing human.....EVEN the DC#!!

Amazing! Who knew?

Actually, I just had the most amazing idea for something to add to my parcel, so I suppose it's a good thing I got delayed!
