Tonight the village gets riddled with " ripper fever" as the long awaited Jack The Ripper lecture comes to the Memorial Hall.Now I did mention to Auntie Glad that she would have made a delightful old Victorian crone if we made her up with a shawl and a basket of lavender and sat her on the village Hall steps , but she said her cockney wasn't up to it.......especially when her " cor lummy...ave a banana" comes out less like Nancy out of Oliver and more like Gladys Pugh from Hi De Hi.
I am in two minds setting a bonfire on the allotment next to the memorial Hall at 6.45pm ... Some atmospheric " fog" would set the scene quite beautifully as the punters arrive for their evening of gore.
I'll mention it to affable despot Jason a bit later....I am sure he'll be up for it
Anyhow, I'll close with a big thank you to fellow blogger Em Parkinson, who from her
Delightful rural backwater in the South East, sent me some of her artwork of Wiliam and
George ( below)
We collected the framed pictures today and they look beautiful on the cottage wall
Thank you so much Em for making such an effort
And all for the price of a sad scotch egg sent in the post
