Brethren of the Worcestershire Mark Degree.
Yet another week rolls by and we are still in various states of lockdown. I heard that they were thinking of isolating the over 50’s, well that must be 99% of us. Hopefully you are all finding your feet in your new normal for 2020 and that some good will be locked in there somewhere, whether it’s spending more time with the family or getting round to all those DIY jobs around the house, looking after the garden or sorting your shed out.
I can’t believe this is my twelfth communication to you, and I didn’t start at the beginning of lock-down. The last two weeks I have extended the research of the Province and I have been repeatedly asked for another quiz. So, this week, because it was the British F1 Grand Prix last weekend and we have another this weekend, I have produced a quiz related to F1, Debbie and I are great fans. If you’re not an F1 fan, don’t be put off, I have given you the answers, well, in anagram form. The idea is to name all the F1 drivers who have achieved pole position between 2000 and 2019. You may not be a fan but some of the drivers are household names. Have fun with it and don’t forget to send me your answers. NO CHEATING.
Now for your one liners you have been sending. I’m not naming names, you’ll know if I include one of yours, I’m not taking the blame for such groans.
A member of Parliament to Disraeli: “Sir, you will either die on the gallows or of some unspeakable disease.” – “That depends, Sir, ” said Disraeli, “whether I embrace your policies or your mistress.”
I saw a sign in a house window which said “Television for sale £1 –volume stuck on full” — well I just couldn’t turn that down.
The flat fish angling contest starts in ten minutes, I’d better get my skates on!
Have to go now, I’m just on my way to fix Cat Stevens caravan, Awning has broken!
Enjoy the heatwave this weekend.
