    Enjoy the tennis DP… and shoot for the stars little matchstick men (but don’t forget your matchstick spacesuits).

    (wonder if anyone has logged onto DP.com from Stansted airport before…)

    daddyp replied:

    We used to have an antique shop – this was one of the things that we didn’t want to be parted from …. the inside is covered in drips of sealing wax …… or were you talking about Andy Murray!!?!

    I suspect that sadly, he will turn out to be Scottish….but lets hope not. Although I do have a very soft spot for Rafa so wouldn’t mind at all if he wins.

    daddyp replied:

    I quite like Rafa as well ….. *frantically hedging bets*

    oh, it’s that time of year again, isn’t it? off to find a tennis skirt and perfectly white tennis shoes and sproing around in public places shouting “Tennis anyone?”

    daddyp replied:

    I say Daisy, that’s terrifically good – jolly well done.

    So now we know, definitely Scottish. Oh well.

    daddyp replied:

    I’m glad I’m a Sassenach as it happens …….

    I like the boat on the wall, how many matchsticks did you use?

    fracas replied:

    LOL GW… that’s a gem!

    daddyp replied:

    My great grandfather was a naval architect – it’s one of his models. I don’t know how many matchsticks he used ….. do you want me to count them?

    gitwizard replied:

    No no, you might miss a *yawn* backhand return…..

    daddyp replied:

    I’m surrounded by infidels!!!!!!

    gitwizard replied:

    I must admit tennis has an edge over some other activities, even those clever internet bookmakers refuse my wagers on paint drying…..

    daddyp replied:

    Isn’t the Tour de France on the box at the moment? I’m sure I heard a rumour …….

    Is that a pole in the background……….? *looks concerned*

    daddyp replied:

    Yes it is …….. *looks around innocently*

    Lo,TG replied:

    Ahem. It’s purely decorative.

    Jo Pearce replied:

    Ah well that’s ok then……I can never get any cards to stick to ours…..

    Those matchsticks kill. Hilarious. Definitely book fodder. BTW, here in the States we’ll be watching fireworks, hopefully not on the telly. Not trying to rub it in. Just saying.

    daddyp replied:

    Oh yes – happy 4th of July and all that …… cup of tea? …… if there’s any left …….

    I’m considering doing a book ….. don’t know if I have the energy though …… tee hee

    You mean they’re still doing that during the world cup. How odd.

    daddyp replied:

    Hello Dolce!!!! ….. I see that you’ve just come over to upset me ……. excellent!

    Several points need to be made here.

    It is time you Sassenachs annexed Spain so you have a chance of winning a Grande Slam in the most boring sport in the world.

    It is time you Sassenachs imported more Suud Afrikaans as there is an Ashes Tour approaching.

    It is time you Sassenachs stopped berating yourselves for losing 4-0 to the Kaiser’s Corps. They did it to Argentina and Australia as well.

    It is time you, yourself, visited my blog and picked up the present I have left there for you.

    daddyp replied:

    A present!!!! ……………. whooooooooosssssssssh

    Lo,TG replied:

    We’re not allowed to Annexe these days, Archie, and we’re trying to stop Importations – it’s much too expensive.

    P.S. present???

    daddyp replied:

    [you can read my gracious acceptance speech over at Archie’s my angle]
