Bert 3 Magpies 2
Bert is still waiting for that post (in-house sniper, Tinkerton) to come up and yesterday, to keep his hand in, sent another magpie to oblivion. But the brutes are undeterred. Just now he set his sights on another of the feathered fiends. And. Missed. The Magpie. And. Hit. A Water Pipe.
Now he has to race down to Cully for a jointer. And all the magpies are sitting on the byre roof laughing at him.
