M.C., I really appreciate your comment especially because, with light hearted material like this, you can never be sure how it will be received. But the reaction to date makes me glad that I followed my instinct to post it!

Many thanks, Paul

Thanks Jeff...for reading and commenting....the asphalt line is funny...reminds me of "she was only a chimney sweeps daughter but she knew how to haul ash". I think we must share that Benny Hill/rude seaside postcard sense of humour...nudge, nudge, wink, wink😂

this is brilliant Paul, absolutely love it - the Bush's are definitely my favourite. I dunno tho, Polly Graaf and Albert Ross are good.

this afternoon whilst chopping logs I had 'Des Lynam / botulinum' running round my head for some reason - and thought about doing a poem called Things That Went Through My Head Whilst Chopping Logs' - but thankfully my brain moved on and I didn't get any further than dear old Des.

can't wait for part 2. Tomorrow? Please. 😃
