tell me where is fancy bred ?























a feller that i deliver stuff to in crowborough has the most distressing black-eye

in reply to the inevitable enquiry, he says he was sweeping at a ball that lifted and came up from the edge of the bat

i then wondered what the scorer entered on the sheet

"retired, hurt", of course ... but there was some consolation ...  a "sixty, not out" score does wonders for his batting average at this stage of the season

so hubris and nemesis are still the inseparable twins

and what will you be nibbling at sunset ?

a letter arrives with a picture of george best ....

someone with a paintbrush has done their best ...

but they've failed to capture the heathcliffe/celtic blackness of his hair and eyebrows and the comparative pallor of his usual complexion ... and, to steal a phrase from a proper writer ... the lovely bones



















i saw him play a couple of times
