Cemetery View - February 2011

Submitted by Ghostly Gadgie on Friday, 11 February 2011

Where have you been? I hear you cry. Yes, gap in reports from over the fence during the winter months, but I have an excuse. Thanks to the little known Anglo-Australian Corpse Exchange Programme, I spent Christmas and New Year down under watching the cricket. A tough life, or death, I know.

Good sport though, there’s little to beat the pleasure of thrashing the Aussies on their own soil. But by far the best bit is listening to the insane Aussie commentators, who all subscribe to the Japanese emperor school of mindless optimism, as in “the war hasn’t turned out necessarily to our advantage’. Well, you don’t say so sunshine!

Was that the trees a rustling, or the hinges of the gate? Or Ernie’s ghostly goldtop a rattling in its crate?

No, it is I, Leclerc, the voice of reason from over the cemetery fence, back to bring you down to earth, or possibly under it, if things go wrong, as they likely will.

Couple of 1980’s comedy quotations there for the sharper amongst you.

Cemetery View - August 2010

Cannot get my cousin stirred. Never known him have such a long lie down. Must be the excitement from promotion last season. So, I've taken the opportunity to give my view. Hope he doesn't get upset! I'm a bit further up from the Ghostly Gadgie and further to the left. Gives me a decent perspective, I reckon.

Cemetery View - April 2010

Well, closer and closer we get. Will we make it this time? Just a couple of weeks now to find out if it is to be the dreaded fourth place again, or if we can stagger over the line at last. Few interesting events since my last communication, including a very feisty game against the Stokesley lads, on and off the pitch. But such days are not everybody’s cup of tea, oh no, definitely not.
