"Seven bums and fourteen legs,
a brazen ecstasy which begs
the question some of us are asking -
is Peter Goulding multi-tasking?"

  1. I really meant to get something ready for Versal this time. 15th a bit close for some magnum opus now.
    I like the sound of the Wenlock one best. Shropshire is lovely and it's the home of the Modern Olympics. Huzzah! Except boo! to Lord Coe: I'm still struggling for tickets. Not that I'll be going on about that much this year.
