Glory Be

by 3arn0wl

In some sort of desperate pilgrimage, the Beau Street fox ran through a choir rehearsal at St. Nick’s this morning, sprinkling his ash-tag as he went.

In a top-C-turvy kinda way, Hezekiah Pratt was looking forward to hearing the most sublime Misery ever written in the Minster this evening.

And in a perpetual state of excitement,  Curate,  Christine Tenning is on the lookout for Fr. James Dean of St. Nick’s coming on his moped to Evening Prayer.

But Mister Bannister,  in the absence of anything better to do,  is fossicking around with the remote,  looking for a half-decent game of footie to watch.

What a # they made of things

The Boxing Day hunt ain’t what it used to be:

  • There are no toffs in their red blazers, sat astride their mounts outside Snodding Hall, imbibing Lord Snodding’s “Extra special”.
  • No Beagles barking excitedly at the prospect of the chase.
  • No fox, running for its life.

But, in this somewhat devalued scene, there’s still the chase!

The fittest, the fastest of the Beau Street Runners set off ahead of the pack, streaming punched-circles of a paper trail. The hounds, doggedly following his tracks, hoping to close in, if not for the kill, for a glass of something well-earned @ the Flying Pig! 🙂

Fall back

by 3arn0wl

Tom Bell had gone up the tower at St. Nick’s ready to ring for Eucharist, and wondered why there was no one else there.

The ‘fox’ got an hour’s grace at the hash on the Snodding Estatethey’ll never catch him.

Gaia Daley luxuriated in the extravagance of an extra hour in her king-sized bed – she still kneaded to be up at the crack of dawn though.

But putting the clocks back an hour made not the slightest bit of difference to Justin Case.  He never gets up before lunchtime on a Sunday anyway!
