The birds were twittering away in beautiful Ashdown Forest when “Cousin” Dave Holme’s Land Rover arrived with most of the team. With a wine-fortified picnic, our big hitters soon hit the top notes, almost emulating the feat of Ben Stokes who scored the fastest Test 100 at Lord’s around the same time.
Our Pecker Packer appears to have solved many of our travel worries. It holds nine and it is exempt from the congestion charge. Said “Cousin” “It’s about twenty years old and some time ago it found itself in the sea at Mersea, in Essex and I claimed on my insurance for a new engine. It now has a reconditioned engine which will last another 100,000 miles. Land Rovers are in demand these days.”
