Stop Press News.
Ten minutes ago, I had a phone call from the nice lady who runs our local Tudweliog village show. She's been let down by the poultry judge, could I step into the breach ?
Well I've only ever judged game show classes but she was desperate and I said yes.
My judging appointment starts at ten o'clock tomorrow morning and by the way she said "There maybe one or two rabbits" The only thing that I know about rabbits, is how to cook them.

Very good Bodger . What is your criteria for judging -looks or eggs or meat ? Leaving out the eggs for the rabbits.

Good one Bodger, you can do it.  

Are you sure she didn't ask for a "paltry" judge? - i.e. " very small or meagre."

Oh dear! Did it once and had all sorts of aggro, why this why not that etc. I vowed never again. Still best of luck, hope it all goes well.

Well I'm already back from my judging engagement. I told you that it was a smallish show. I quite literally had two chickens and two pet rabbits to judge. Oh yes and nine lots of eggs in the egg competition.  Makes note to self that next year I must try and support this local show, which has been running since 1892.
