Not the Browning version

With apologies to Robert Browning and Terence Rattigan
- sorry boys.
How They Brought the Good News from Acle to the Net!
I sprang to the wheel, just Jake, and me;
I steered, Jake gallop'd, we speeded, tee hee!
"What speed!" cried the watch, as the gate-bolts undrew;
"Speed!" echoed the walls to us hurtling through;
Behind shut the postern, the lights sank to rest,
And into the midnight, we gallop'd our best.
What a load of old toffee Julia, all that digging you have been
doing must have dislodged your brain.
He's an old flame of mine.
"Nay, 'tis not true" I cry.  All this mad dashing about is just
a perfect example of my devotion to duty and desire to
please the ever growing, global army of Long Dogger's
constantly baying for something new to stitch (or stash).
Meanwhile, back in the real world ......
I here are a couple of tiny teasers which are guaranteed to
enliven your taste buds and get you all into a state
of heightened desire (please no photos).
You don't think I'm going to give it all away at once do you?
What better than a couple of little "amuse bouches",
a glass of chilled Chateau DMC 1996
and the first tantalising peeps of the new design to be
launched on Wednesday 8th April 2015
Acle Mean Time.
Bon appetit!
