From the Party Guilty of Committing 'Gate of Ivory, Gate of Horn'

We interrupt the muddied oafs...

… To note that real sport continues elsewhere.

 

Hants win, Surrey win, Glamorgan win, Somerset lose, and, my word, what a turn-up for the books at Edgbaston as the Bears thrash a dozy and overconfident Durham.

 

Also, may I suggest you look at some pretty pictures, courtesy of a certain local calendar competition and the Beeb?

 

Springtide, twice;

Summer, two sets;

Autumn; and

Winter, doubled.

(ETA: There is something inherently humourous about sheep.)

 

There.  That shd restore the Natural Order of Things.  (Footer, pffft.  Germany, pffft.  And don’t mention the war.)

Wiltshire looks lovely - I'm ashamed to admit I don't know it at all.

Isn't it, though?

You have much to look forward to, then.

No comment on the cricket. :)

Those sheep look a bit like creatures from outer space. Wiltshire as such, though, is most beautiful. I love the colours, and I do long to return to parts of the world with thatched houses.

Indeed. It's much more fun when the hosting country loses early on, then everybody is much more relaxed. And despite that glorious Fautly Towers episode, that is getting a bit old. *pets its beard* :)

You're lucky I avoided the 'Yes, Minister' quotation, then.

And, yes: SHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP! Daleks with wool!

Very much so.

Although it is most amusing. *g*

Once again, I resolve to get out of the Fens.

I am fond of lambs, but find sheep disappointing. I was, however, amused by a Japanese friend of my sister who visted the house and asked if there were any sheep locally she could see, as she never had. Sheep were duly visited, and provoked astonishment as they were twice the size she had expected.

I applaud your resolution.

(Note iconic sheep.)

After all, look what too long in the Fens did for Salazar's temper.

And there are a LOT of things about sheep that disconcert the ingenuous on first acquaintance. Or should do.
