Of Banbury Stories And Pitching The Gammon

October 27, 2008
As some of you know, I can be as blue as megrim one minute, and in high rope the next, so it’s just as well that you can’t see me looking Friday-faced!  We’re at a bit of a low ebb at the minute, at a bit of a standstill…but not ready to swallow the spider just yet, d’ye know what I mean…my pockets are to let…!  It’s not because we were drawing the bustle or outrunning the constable, or anything like that…no, and I don’t particularly like to run on tick, neither…you know how it is…the cost of everything…prices going up…leaves us dished, y’ken…!
Now, I’m not trying to cut a sham…nor tell you no Banbury stories…but the truth of the matter is it’s enough to make anyone fly up into the boughs…!  I know that some of yous think I’m dicked in the nob…that I’m a trifle touched in the upper works…and that’s as maybe…but I ‘ll tell you this for nowt…I’m no bird-witted clunch!  See, me…I’m a downy one, so don’t try cutting me a wheedle…OK…?!!
I’m looking forward to a trip to the boozing-ken, on Friday, but these days I don’t like to get bosky…there’s nothing worse than dipping too deep, then casting up yer accounts…nah…my days of going on a spree are over…I prefer to just get a bit half-sprung and have a good time…cheers!

    Betting industry is kinda weird, usually we go quiet around this time of year because
    people only have a couple more wages before xmas, plus ofcourse there are alot of
    worries about the credit crunch….yet i\’ve just worked the busiest weekend in months!!
    Just going back now! Take care xxx
