What's your name Hoskins?

Er, Hoskins Sire.

No I mean what does your mummy call you?

Oh! Cecil, Sire.

Well Cecil, you're chopped.

(It's a very old one...)

Narrated in the famous David Attenborough tone ď Breeding season for the little choppers can be very susceptible to gusts of wind , making their little rotors overexcited and just like that itís a dog pile ď

A quick call on this one, so the wreckage can be cleared by the time the bar opens on Friday afternoon:

Congrats to Treadigraph:

The Osages suffered badly after an attack by a Sioux raiding party...
Over to you, Blue Leader

Oh blimey, thanks AC! As I've only just hosted the CST and I'm about to head out the front door for few hours, may I throw it open to the others?

(If no takers by the time I get home at lunchtime, I'll search out something for the weekend sir... )

This is spiffing! I wonder if I could get Lord Brownlow to buy me one. We could get Lulu Lytle to do the livery.
