The Village Haul

by 3arn0wl

Following Justin Case’s recent find, Arky-ologists from the university have been down on the banks of the Bredy with their buckets and spades,  building sand castles sifting sand.

You wouldn’t believe the things they found:

  • and the bones of a cow. :/

Looks like the Moores are having a Barbie.

On your marks

Mrs. M.P. Robinson demonstrated her supreme command of the whistle again earlier today @ the Little Sniffy CofE Primary School’s Sports Day.  School Secretary,  Gloria Moore née Devine relegated,  as usual,  to the position of impartial scorer.

A handsome crowd came in their finest to offer support and vocal encouragement to their little darlings, except for Rosie Barrieclough, who arrived wearing an extra-large T-shirt and leggings – thereby bagging first prize in the Sack Race.

Rather unfairly, in many observer’s eyes, Noah Wan entered his limb-deficient whippet for the 3 Legged Race, but justice was seen to be done as Thunder espied a rabbit,  and chased that instead.  In the end, Ella Miller and the vicar came first.  Together.

The Egg & Spoon Race was, as usual, owned by Cook Cakes, who can whip up a custard faster than anyone.

And everyone participated in the backward running race, .ɘƨɿɘvɘɿ ni ǫniʜƚ ɘloʜw ɘʜƚ nɒɿ-ɘɿ bnɒ

His stars were in alignment

Tom Bell happened to pick up an errant stick in Poppleton Park and was immediately enslaved. The Devine-ing Rod didn’t lead him towards the flowing waters of the Burbling though,  but on the path to Poppleton’s boutiques.

Meanwhile Gloria Moore née Devine was scouting for a Summer wardrobe, and had picked out a number of possibles from the racks.  As she went to try them on,  she must’ve taken a wrong turning,  since she somehow ended up in the shop window.  Not realising her error however,  she started to disrobe.

Indeed it’s such serendipity that meant our keen astronomer got an excellent sighting of the Glorious full moon.

Too much pomp under the circumstances

Gloria thought that people had gone to an awful lot of trouble for her birthday:  tying bunting up across the land, holding street parties and lighting beacons.

It’s a big O birthday, but that doesn’t matter.  Roger’s got a special meal planned, and he’s promised her a few days on the continent.  Perfect!

Well, well, well

Gloria Moore née Devine  is always immaculately turned out.

Hugh and Holly Wood scrub up nicely too.

And even the vicar has his moments – when he manages to get his vestments on the right way round.

But, come the first week of May, Angela Anyould and the ladies of the Little Sniffy W.I. collect the blossoms needed to dress Little Sniffy’s well.

Middle March

Godwin Heal’s served the sick of Poppleton faithfully for a generation. Now it seems he’s required to become a manager.  He’d been to see Michelle Biskup who’d advised him to take on an accountant, but he’s not sure.  His wife’s always kept her eye on the books.

Meanwhile Gloria Moore née Devine had been driving home from school in her 4×4,  and noticed that Poppy & Andy appeared to be living in Bill Spooner’s caravan.  She thought that wouldn’t do at all, so she went over to see Eddie Lowe to find out what he intended to do about it. Roger Moore thought she shouldn’t be meddling in other people’s business.

And a position has just opened up on Little Sniffy’s parish council,  and Roger Moore fancies his chances.

Gloria goes shopping

by 3arn0wl

Perhaps it was the sheer number of bags she was wrestling with;

Perhaps it was the way she was hurtling recklessly towards it or

Perhaps it was a political comment about the state of the country.

Whatever the reason, no one was in the least forglopned to read the message writ large in bold white Verdana on a stop-red background: “This door is alarmed”.
