    (Saint-Saëns Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso)

    What cacophony hies from yer room Bert?
    Turn doon that deavin rock man…enough!
    Whutsa ma, you want to hear Rachmaninoff?
    Nae boy, I’d rather not hear any ting atoll.

    Unless it’s the pipes boy…

    Aye, I’ll take the pipes ‘o Pan on the ides of May.
    Play them now on yer dear ‘ol mum’s special day.

    An who’s this slit skirt lass as got yer kilt in a flutter?
    When ‘ul you get uh rondo intruducin yer mudder?
    Her name is Camille, she’s from Saint Saëns;
    a capricious bird, with a bow on her sconce.

    She took the low road from the south of France.
    If she’d taken the high road, she’d nae dusted ‘er pants.
    You could uh ridden Debussy lassie for nary a pence,
    it stops at firth and forth, right next to our fence.

    Ach naw! it’s tha painter of moats token on a missile,
    look’n like a clatty wraith wi uh dose ‘o jump’n fits.
    Higher ‘an Abbey Craig from smok’n too much thistle,
    your faether would say he’s got a bit ‘o the “Heifetz”…

    Thanks, but more importantly, you found a way back. I noticed you were having trouble, in fact I was planning to offer my services as your surrogate poster.

    Many people only knew him as a wrestler, but he was hugely influential behind the scenes as well. Definitely Southern wrestling's secret weapon.

    It was a never-ending advert loading script. The son in law sorted it by putting on an ad blocker and switching to fire fox - seems to be working.

    I am indeed.
    Her passing did not go unnoticed, one of several CRT divas that fueled the fire of my adolescence.
    RIP Yvonne.

    Eh oop! Anyone still here?

    The beer's flat, the wine was left uncorked and I can't find Parker anywhere...

    Hey! Seen and sasquatch lately?

    I'll dial you up a beer while I try to figure where the heck Parker got to.

    Nice to see you - looks like it's been awful quiet in here.

    A darkened room. Shrouded funiture. There is a scrabbling noise at the door, slowly the handle turns, reluctantly and with a sound like a screech owl's talons dragging down Cruella DeVille's blackboard, the door is pushed open. A shaft of mote filled light sends shadows and spiders scuttling for the corners. I tell my whippet to sit, adjust my flat cap and enter the room. A shadowy figure rises in front of me like a spirit summoned from ancient darkness by the guadians of silence and decay to block my tresspass. "Good evening sir", it intoned "Your usual ?" " No thankyou Parker" I replied, "but if you would be so good as to send a crate of champagne to The Newlands for Ben Stokes, I would be much obliged."

    Hey there Mick!

    Yes, a magnificent innings. Second fastest double ton ever. A record held by a New Zealander, I believe.

    Veuve Cliquot on the way.

    No, but El Sancho ran across one out in Georgia, I believe. Take a look at his photo in the Bigfoot thread, he was able to get pretty close.

    Innings? oh yes, must be that cricket(?) business again.

    Parker, in the guise of Santa, left me a bottle of Jack Daniels and some Glenfiddich single malt under the tree.
    Happy new year!

    Yes cricket indeed. Young Ben got 200 runs in 163 balls in a test match, that's like hitting 10 home runs in a major league game (I think). "An increasingly rare reminder of the fearless glory days of test cricket"


    Stokes in numbers - the records he broke

    Fastest Test double century by an England batsman
    Highest score by an England batsman at Newlands, beating Jack Hobbs' 187 in 1910
    Most sixes by an England batsman (11), surpassing Wally Hammond in 1933
    Most runs scored in a day of Test cricket at Newlands, beating the 450 made by Australia at Wanderers in 1921
    Highest score by a number six, bettering the 250 of Doug Walters for Australia against New Zealand in 1977
    Stokes and Bairstow set the highest partnership for a sixth wicket in Test cricket
    Stokes and Bairstow set the fastest 300 partnership, beating India's Virender Sehwag and Rahul Dravid

    He's New Zealand born by the way.
