John what on earth is that sport on Youtube? Cricket used to be five days long, easier to watch on a black and white portable (with a coat hanger aerial (we used to use our coat hanger everywhere - even watched the Charles Di wedding from a boat on the Norfolk Boards with a coat hanger on a pole!)

 

We used to play it on a beach or field with three stumps at the back and one stump by the bowler as we couldn't afford the two extra stumps! And a tennis ball!

 

The commentators used to receive cakes from admiring wives and discuss them in the commentary box. 

 

I can remember unpredictable Ian Botham. You  never knew what was going to happen with him. Then you settle in and of course...

 

Rain stops play! :)

Buzzing buggers eh? I have planted a flower garden this year to attract them. Still small at this moment in the heat. I even collected stones from the beach near San Tropez to write the flower names on! 

 

Bring on the little buzzers!

I had just come out of Aldi's and there was a woman crying her eyes out, she'd lost all of her holiday money. I felt so sorry for her I gave her £50. I don't normally do that kind of thing but I'd just found £2000 in the carpark..

Second that, no finger nails left. Who says Cricket is boring? It's the Ashes next, hopefully another nail biter.
