A letter from Italy

[An expatriate writes from rural Italy...]
Sorry Paul, this is probably not a news item, but just a short letter.

Everytime I check the results they seem to be stuck in the same position...is this to do with the World Cup or Wimbledon? None of the rising stars have risen and none of the old masters have gone past their mid-year projections.

Given my location it is probably not surprising that I have commissioned a set of marble pins and will in a short time return with a Italian team clad in blue to knock down skittle pins....but will it be called skittles or marbles....oh yes, I have to confirm that the Italian team will be completely free of any wiff of corruption or backhanders and will have nothing to do with the former Prime Minister...who I cannot mention for fear of being found hanging with stones in my pockets under Blackfriars Bridge.

Keep playing or have the conditions deteriorated?

Best wishes

Conditions had certainly deteriorated last night (Tuesday 18/7/06) as once again the alley has been deluged with dirty dishwater from above. That's the leak that was definitely fixed by the last lot of plumbers, who couldn't understand why none of the previous plumbers had been able to fix such a simple problem. Tom's righteous anger about all this didn't stop him getting a floorer with his opening shot (yes, Tom Lederer we're talking about here). Unfortunately as Steve and I went to stick the pins up, we discovered about three inches of water was lying under the mats behind the frame...

Play resumed after baling out, but was abandoned soon after.

The eight-pin and floorer chart has now been updated.
