For today's image, we enter one of the lavish rooms for long-term residents at the D.O.L.L.S. House.......and it is truly a picture of boundless joy and harmony, as the talented uncle Bluebottle bangs away at his organ......
As we have been experiencing one or two minor difficulties with our carrier-pigeon post, I have started delivering this year's Christmas cards a little earlier than usual - and what a pleasant surprise it was for this lively couple to receive the visit of their cherished leader, in person, in the flesh!

david-coded-numbers.......I would just like to say - "The budgie has landed"... _ _ _ ...
Juneee.........Granny is on her rescue mission.....the grannycopter was last sighted over Russia.......
End-of-your-tether.......'The B-side'......(Hee-Hee!).......

juneshone

sorry David, I think you are the only one who understands the code

david06520

Actuwellerly, my earlier post was a secretly coded message... _ _ _ ...

juneshone

or SLOG, maybe he's gone back to her

jignut

Let's ask Lela.He knows all.

juneshone

OK I'll accept that it will forever remain a mystery. I hope the mystery of his whereabouts at the moment will soon be unveiled

jignut

Let me put it this way,many things in Bugosiland just............can't be explained.

juneshone

is that the concise version of The Raven?

Witzend

The B side is much better.

juneshone

Miss Jignut, I was lying in bed thinking about KBoy, as one does, and something about your explanation doesn't add up. Having had a good bath and night's sleep he was ready to greet the World and I waved him off to the Doctor's. He was to go straight there and back but never reached the surgery. So pray tell me where the Ostrich Oil rub came in? What is the stuff for? How did you acquire the boy? Are any of us safe to walk the streets in broad daylight?

juneshone

thank you David, can't have too many renditions of this beautiful, if a little schmaltzy, poem

lelabugosi

Thank you david-many-numbers......unclebluebottle has sung his version (with buzzing) for Juneeee on the next puzzle-thingy........it sounds a little strange without the buzzing.......

david06520

It was many and many a year ago,
In a kingdom by the sea,
That a maiden there lived whom you may know
By the name of Annabel Lee;
And this maiden she lived with no other thought
Than to love and be loved by me.

I was a child and she was a child,
In this kingdom by the sea,
But we loved with a love that was more than love?
I and my Annabel Lee?

lelabugosi

Well, precious-pebble, I am counting all my past incarnations to which I have happily returned while hypnotized by the brilliant Dr.A.B...........

gemstone

And just how many lives is that Exalted One?

lelabugosi

I have never heard anything so beautiful in all my lives!.........Thank you david-numbers, for that inspired piece of buzzing!.....

juneshone

jigidi will be 6 next sunday if anybody wants to sent it a birthday card

Elfie

I enjoyed it too, very lively indeed - had to look out of the window to see if there was one. There was but a Big Tit came and ate it!! Sorry!!

Plumpossum

And very poetic, too, Robbie.

Robbiel

That was beautiful David, thanks very much.

juneshone

dear old Bluebottle, the Leonard Cohen of BongaBonga when are you going to play my request, it's Poe's finest dirge

david06520

bzzzz bzzzz bzzzz
bzzzz -- bzzzz -- bzzz
bzzz bzzz bzzz

twoclubs

Yes, Juneee, anything is better than that Madam's House!

juneshone

well done Jignut, spoiled by the sloppy finishing of sending him to that infamous house. SLOG would have been better, crumbs the DOLLS house would have been better.

twoclubs

I think we all need to go into the lavish room at the D.O.L.L.S. House. We need to rest. It would be best. Everyone just breath deep and find a comfy chair and listen to Uncle Bluebottle playing the "Flight of the Bumblebee". it will give us some peace I am sure, positively sure, mostly so to speak.

lelabugosi

Hanne-with-pipe....as I said, it's because uncle A. is not there......he has telekinetic powers......
Well, dancing-pecan....that is indeed good news....the first part anyway.....I shall send someone to collect him before he reaches the dreaded Temple-madame's house of ill-repute.......Of course, one good thing has come out of all this - you will now never be short of horse manure for your garden.........

jignut

I am happy to say KBoy has completely recovered. My spells have finally worn off. It seems the whole problem started with a severe reaction to the Ostrich Oil Rub. I pinned a note to his shirt, packed him a lunch and put him on a bus to ChurchLady's house. Not the best choice perhaps but I can't afford to feed him any longer . He eat like horse!

Elfie

So am I Robbie!! Why does it??

lelabugosi

Well, I am away all night on a moonlit tadpole run, and come back.....TO THIS ONSLAUGHT OF SLANDEROUS, UNFOUNDED, UNBELIEVABLE ACCUSATIONS FIRED AGAINST OUR CHERISHED INSTITUTIONS, AND UNMERITED SLURS AGAINST THE REVERED AND RESPECTED NAME OF BUGOSI!.....
And all this coming from the diseased tongue of a SELF-CONFESSED RETIRED ARMS DEALER!......
I shall refrain from any unnecessary defence of the sacred principles of our cause, in aiding the POOR, THE DESTITUTE, THE DISINHERITED of this world, as we strive to bring some joy and HAPPINESS into their otherwise pitiful lives.........Only stating that our way is the RIGHT way, the TRUE way, and the path to spiritual and material well-being.......
Now, on to other important matters.......
Uncle Bluebottle did indeed work for the Bonga-Bonga Resistance, fighting the evils of fascism......that is where he got his wings, which puts away when playing with his organ.....
Uncle A's portrait is indeed hanging straight....it only turns round when he is in the same room.....
We are searching for the missing Kaleidoboy, and I feel confident that he will son be returned to his "high standing".....(in a short sort of way).....
Yes, the D.O.L.L.S. nursery has many carrot trees, as well as cabbage bushes, onion vines etc.etc.......

Robbiel

I am very pleased to see that Uncle A's portrait is hanging straight Lela!!

Elfie

David-of-the-Numbers, it's interesting what you say!! Do we ever wake up, must we, shall we? Is Patsy's speech just a nightmare in a nightmare in a nightmare?.... - I would like to change the channel really! - thanks Juneee you did it for me... - but where IS Kboy??

juneshone

I don't suppose this could be where Kaleidoboy ended up? Could Uncle have a scout round while he is in there, get lost while looking for the bathroom kind of thing?

juneshone

Dear old Buzfly will you play Annabel Lee for me, it is so sad and melodic

octomom

Oh my goodness, I see the P-Squirt has posted his mug shot from 35 years ago. He was "rejected" by the Sheriff's Department, as you can see from the tattoo they inscribed on his forehead.

gemstone

ROTFLMAO, Robbie...poor gerdje trying to fathom this!!! Good thing I didn't have a mouthful of tadpole wine!!! :DDD

After reading one of Uncle Bluebottle's favourites...I assume, am lead to believe, feel assured that he perhaps, most certainly, almost assuredly worked for the BBC during WWII delivering codes to the Resistance...Vive le France! (Oops...does "vive" have anything to do with vivisection?)

patsquire

Gentle doubleclubber, all has been revealed in the Bugosiland saga, including some of the most incredibly disgusting and revolting photos of the CREATURES that have resulted from the "scientific experiments" at B.A.R.F. I beseech thee to go into the catalog of puzzles in lelabug's file, go back, and back, and back and you will find THINGS for which he proudly took credit in the early days. I myself cannot erase the images from my memory . . . . . and these were NOT THE WORST of the abominations of which I speak. OH! My heart pounds, my temples throb, I faint, I die at the remembrance of such evils!

twoclubs

My My My MrP could you enumerate a little more. I will find you a carrot if you need one Robbie as you must miss being inflated. And where are UncleBluebottle's wings? I do so miss them. I think I will go into one of Davidwithnumbers dreams now.

Robbiel

Well I am sure that gerdje17 will figure out everything now Squire! Lela do they grow carrots at D.O.L.L.S.?!

patsquire

The D.O.L.L.S. House (shudder), scene of unspeakable horrors and mistreatment of innocent girls and the elderly on the very grounds, I believe, of B.A.R.F., the Bugosi Animal Research Farm (shudder), scene of unspeakable horrors and mistreatment of innocent animals and the CENTRAL FACILITY in and the very REASON for the founding of Bonga-Bonga.

The Bugosis knew their monstrous vivisectionistic experimentation on poor dumb creatures would soon be uncovered and the world would rail against them, so they used treachery and their vast ill-gotten wealth to lay claim to an unused and unwanted stretch of desolate countryside (on an unnamed continent where corruption and venality run rampant anyway). They grandly named it Bonga-Bonga, quickly enslaved (with the highly addictive and mind-numbing Tadpole Wine) the hapless residers who domiciled on the land, and went to work building the evil, evil B.A.R.F. where they commenced their hideous "research." It wasn't long before they needed a brobdignagian abattoir for the disposal of their failed horrors.

Soon after that they built the D.O.L.L.S. House to tuck away the poor creatures who clung to life, piteous and woeful as it was. Eventually it became a home for unwed mothers, but soon descended into a prison, a pen, a sty where they keep the old and infirm, the crippled and crazy, the witless souls they still create at B.A.R.F. through their cruel experiments.

BE WARNED Bugosilanders, all is not pleasant and nice in Bonga-Bonga, no matter how hard the Bugosian propaganda machine works to crank out stories of pleasantness and niceness.

lelabugosi

I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore, (buzzz...)
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand- (buzzz...)
How few! yet how they creep
Through my fingers to the deep,
While I weep- while I weep! (Buzzzzzzzzzzz....)

All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.

lelabugosi

He plays Gothic-buzz, which is a style of his own invention..........Mainly poems of Poe set to music......with a constant buzzing sound........very relaxing......

Elfie

But it's awfully sweet of U.B. to play for those deaf people, what does he play actually?? Classical, jazz, pop, rock....???

lelabugosi

david-many-numbers....If you say so....(hee-hee!)......
number6-at-the-racetrack......That is actually the beautiful Berenice, uncle/sir Bluebottle's daughter.....and the 'clown' is me.................
was-shining.......I think they are enjoying Bluebottle's visual performance.......As for my ears, I think that they are fine as they are.....

juneshone

they looked thrilled, probably glad for once that they are deaf, I see you are still sporting mouse ears, stag ones might have looked better for Christmas

monza006

I recognise Carole on the TV... playing Os and Xs with her clown!!! It's been a while since I last saw her!!!

david06520

Ooof I see they has made a lamp-base out of the Chimera K-Boy.

lelabugosi

gerdje-numbers......I think you mean the TV, which is showing our daily 'programme'.......I am afraid it is not a labyrinth......
http://www.jigidi.com/created.php?id=XVL0BBVD

dollar-I-with-numbers.......Yes, they are enjoying their tadpole tea........This television doesn't have sound, as the couple are both deaf, so no problem......

buckeye425

I see your guests are also enjoying a lovely tea! I certainly hope someone thought to mute the television during Bluebottle's performance...

o wonder! after looking big-big-bigger I saw the labyrinth on the tv-place!
maybe this will be your next puzzle dear Lela ! I hope so and I am waiting.......

lelabugosi

thousands-of-cakes....that is the TV set, showing the Bonga-Bonga Corporation (B.B.C.) test-card......
(I believe end-of-your-tether is referring to Brussels-sprouts, for the Christmas dinner)......

lelabugosi

Yes, end-of-your-tether.........please attend to your sprouts......

cakes1947

It is indeed a lovely room. What is that in the middle-ish?? TV, computer??? Fun puzzle, thanks Lela!! :)))
(time, 2:04)
.........................ps/Jen, what are you talking about...''sprouts''???

Witzend

Better get the sprouts on then. That organ will be worn paper thin by Christmas.

lelabugosi

I am glad that you enjoyed the puzzle. gerdje-numbers!..........

I am waiting very curious on the comments , maybe I learn to see the joke.but the puzzle is fun fun fun!!!!!
