Removed from a runaway success


Peter Riley of Penrith is on the case, and he is on our case too! “A letter to the editor of the Illawarra Mercury on 23/11/1857, calling for much less authorities regulation, consists of the road ‘and we’ll all stay collectively, like Brown’s cows, and be as completely happy as Larry.’ The allegedly ‘Completely satisfied’ Larry Foley was born in 1849. Appears unlikely that he was already a champion boxer by the age of eight. Additionally, Hats off to Larry was successful in 1961 for Del Shannon, not the Everly Brothers, and solely reached No.1 in Canada. Again to the drafting board!”

“September 28 and there have been Christmas decorations already in David Jones within the Metropolis,” notes Peter Mayes of Petersham. “However I can not inform whether or not they’re decorations or decorations that they’re promoting!”

Kersi Meher-Homji of St Ives writes: “When a batsman hits a six, the commentators name it ‘a most’. However a six would not denote the utmost runs scored off one supply. Batsmen have been awarded eight runs resulting from overthrows. Even that’s not the utmost: ‘When taking part in in a Governor’s Cup match in Malta on Might 28, 1903, Lt-Col Philip Mitford ran 11 runs from one scoring shot,’ wrote Invoice Frindall in Guinness Cricket Info and Feats. Is that this a report? Can C8 readers inform us about greater than eight runs scored off one scoring stroke?” No, the yard would not depend.

Time to come back in from the chilly for Margaret Bowman of Macquarie (ACT): “At Swansea Excessive Faculty within the ’70s, a category (C8) contained a Burgess, a Maclaine and a Blunt. We predict there was a Philby however he was at all times away.”

Invoice Younger of Killcare Heights says that “Craig Lilienthal’s recollections of the ‘arries to the ‘n’ energy’ (C8) jogged my memory of a fellow classmate of mine within the ’60s, a chap by the title of Peter Bassingsthwaites who was at all times written down on class lists, by our English trainer, as B16.” Marvel if he ever attended college in pyjamas?
