Not Banbury Cross!


At The Races!I have always liked nursery rhymes. Their often deceivingly difficult rhyming patterns, along with pantomime-style double meanings, conspire to catch out the innocent reader.
My six-month-old granddaughter is a delight, in fact had I known what fun it was to have a grandchild, I’d have chosen to have one before children! I took a photo of her astride a toy pink pony. A very amateur ten minutes with Photoshop and an idea of a new version of a classic nursery rhyme took shape. So this is my take on ‘imitation being the sincerest form of flattery’…

Go to the races, Royal Ascot of course,
To see a young lady upon a pink horse!
With bling on her fingers,
The air through her toes,
She will be a winner, her Granddad knows!

Have a great Holiday Monday!
