Another Wet Saturday Morning in Baldock!


Effin RainIt’s always difficult to know whether to open the bootsale when the forecast is bad. What if they are wrong and it ends up as a sunny morning? What if I open and everyone’s goods get wet? Will the buyers come? I’m wrong if I do…

I’m wrong if I open and wrong if I don’t,
What if they come or what if they won’t?
I’ll open the gates and to hell with the rain,
It’s now falling hard will they come back again?
The sky over Baldock is black with clouds white,
Some folk are wrong when others are right!
Most customers have gone and here comes the sun,
I wore my new T Shirt and the colours have run.
So it’s back to the farm and the end of the rhyme,
You can’t please all people all of the time!

Two young ladies from the TV production company betty, turned up at the Baldock Bootsale this morning. They are looking for people to appear in the third series of the hit TV show ‘Obsessive Compulsive Cleaners’. If you think you fit the bill and would like to appear, get in touch with them on 02079070892 or e-mail
