New balls...

Of course, it's Wimbledon again, and Rodney has installed a telly in the choir vestry. The fact that, deep within the bowels of the cathedral, TV reception is so bad that any chance of seeing the ball is as good as hopeless doesn't seem to matter. Rodney only wants to watch Tim Henman. 'But he isn't playing' Drane informed him as we were robing up for evensong. 'Didn't you know that he'd retired?' Rodney gave a sort of muffled shriek from underneath his surplice. 'Yes, but he's still on the telly' someone comforted. 'He's commentating this year'.
'That's no bloody good' said Rodney as his head appeared from underneath his robes.
'Unless he's doing it in tennis shorts!'
Personally, I'm disappointed that Miss Sharapova will be taking no further part in this year's contest.

You can still shout "come on Tim!" ad lib. at peculiar moments.

Hi there, reciprocal visit to your lovely but impenetrable Blog. It doesn't matter that I don't understand what you're talking about - I like it anyway! Thank you for visiting me. I did understand the video, of course - how silly. Will keep coming back and hope for better comprehension (on my part). M :-)

Tim Henman. O yes...

I never like Tim Henman much - far too 'uptight'. I felt we never saw the 'real him'. Or maybe we did, and that's just how he is?

Perhaps your friend needs a trip to sit on Henman Hill?

Oh so funny!

I, like the view, still said...

I stood behind a rather gorgeous body at the local hole in the wall last year

great shins, gorgeous thighs, very pert and beautifully proportioned bottom; strong, well held, back and wide - but not over so shoulders; relaxed but taut neck upon which the head was perfectly positioned. . .

I was totally unable to resist taking a peek at the face on the other side of the head atop this - in my humble opinion - magnificent frame. . .
