Dolly's Mixture

The Guild’s guest speaker told us of his great joy when, walking one day, he espied a lady who possessed an unusual knocker. He offered her ?3 for this collector’s item and she was thrilled to be able to unscrew it on the spot for him. He said he happily left a knockerless lady holding in her hand his three ?1 notes. Did we think he had robbed the lady?
It's the 1950's, and Dolly and her husband Chas are now Grocers and Provision Merchants. Owning a shop was a childhood dream of Dolly's, though it wouldn't have happened had Dolly's rice puddings been a little better. And it is at this relatively advanced age, amid the continuing adventures and misadventures of Dolly's eccentric and hilarious family, Dolly finds a best friend for the first time in her life.
