I see you standing .......

Any excuse to show a greyhound picture.
...... like greyhounds in the slips, straining upon the start.
The game's afoot; follow your spirit; and upon this charge cry:
God for Harry!  England and St George!
Old Henry V knew how to celebrate.
Today is St George's day and I, for one, intend to celebrate.
When I was little our school always used to put on a
pageant to mark the occasion but somehow over the years
it's become almost politically incorrect to even mention the fact
in case it should offend.
St George 1 - Dragons nil!
The Irish have their St Patrick's day, the Scots always seem
to do St Andrew proud and the Welsh always honour St David
with a show of leeks and daffodils but today it's the turn
of the English.
Happy St George's Day one and all!
Well he's certainly putting his back into it!
