Village pump gossip...

The 'fun fair' on the village green, just a tiny stone's throw from 'The Turrets', has a bellowing sound system which is guaranteed to keep everyone awake for several hours yet. The Queen's Jubilee is being celebrated in fine style, with fast, smelly and unattractive  food, loads of awful screeching from would-be celeb status nobodies, and more plastic bunting than you can ever buy in Tesco!

We don't really mind, as it's not often they use the village facilities properly, and there's a place where kids and their mums and dads can go and drive dodgem cars at each other, or whiz round on plastic carriages for a spell....

As some wag mentioned to me today, the noise of the motley fairground attractions are just the local council's retribution for the residents' complaints and indignation about the way they wanted/still want, to build a new people's palace for not very much, just over the road, at £2m a pop!

Memories will abound - Scrobs is on the case...!

Lovely Jubbilee...

It was our local Head of State's birthday yesterday. Nobody noticed, apart from the two minutes when the entire air force (comprising 3 ancient MIGs) did a couple of fly-bys and disturbed the tranquillity for two minutes.

Back to the hammock and something cold and fizzy...

Sorry, I can't generate any enthusiasm for a complete waste of scarce (or so we are constantly told) resources. Likewise for the Oh Limpix.

(If you want to clear everybody away, just take a bucket or two of your famous Scrob's ponkystuff eleixir and scatter it on the greensward?)

Oh, its all go here Reevers!

Bless her, the Queen's day is getting a bit of a pasting with the weather an' that, but I'd rather our soldiers were here on parade, rather than fighting someone else's war.

Weather's a bit thick today, which is a pity!

The Orilympics will be a different display of town hall toads I suspect...
