Some Him & Her video mini moments:

Steve & Becky (Tovey & Solemani) are attending a wedding this year…as well as finally making the transition to full time living together…

Following are 3 video clips from season one to give you a quick idea of what the style of humour is like.

The last video has strong language so please be aware it comes with a warning.

What did she say?

Julie_Atherton: Haaaaappy eeeeeeeeaster tweeeeeeeeps!!!!!!

Tom_In_Oz_: @Julie_Atherton could you repeat that in English?

Julie_Atherton: @Tom_In_Oz_ ha! I saaaaaaaid haaaaappyyyyy eeeeeeeeaasteeer!!!!

We’re all adult here, right?

One of the Tovey Blog followers, who's a gay man from England, has exchanged Tweets with me for weeks. I explained to him that being an older man I have a son the same age as Russell Tovey and I have an adopted gay son that lives in New York with his partner. I am certainly not a homophobic man by any means and I have a little brother who is gay and I love him dearly.

Anyway, as our relationship has grown I now call the Englishman son and he calls me pops. As a result of that numerous other blog followers now call me Cousin, Pa, Papa, Gramps, Guardian Angel, Dad or Pops or permutations of those names…you get the point. We even have a lady Tovey Blog follower who acts as Ma when we get into a 3 way at times. It’s all good fun as long as you know this before joining into one of the Twitter chats.

Well, some of my followers and I like to mix it up with a bit of off-colour good-natured humour at times and here is an example. For my part read it in your head like Alf Stewart (one of the characters from Oz TV show Home & Away) for the son’s accent try to imagine a pleasant Englishman’s accent.

jonesyinc1: @Tom_In_Oz_ Sunday - ahhh, yes! Here’s my current blog page Pa -

Tom_In_Oz_: @jonesyinc1 @russelltovey Will be a privilege 2 B one of ur first men aboard. Do you plan on a big re-opening? I like big openings son!

jonesyinc1: @Tom_In_Oz_ @russelltovey me too pops! And you can defo be my first!!! Cx

Tom_In_Oz_: @jonesyinc1 @russelltovey I'll be waiting with my gel in hand son and I hope I don't wear out my welcome too soon xxx I like me seconds son.

jonesyinc1: @Tom_In_Oz_ @russelltovey jeez! How many innuendoes in one tweet! I'm proud of ya pops!! Cx

Tom_In_Oz_: @jonesyinc1 @russelltovey Son it will be all my pleasure to carry on the fine tradition of father-2-son "in-your-end-oh's" xxx

jonesyinc1: @Tom_In_Oz_ @russelltovey yay!!!! Cc
