Thank you England and Austraila for the best Ashes series ever. Some superb cricket was played by both sides but in the end the best team won YEEEEEEAAAAHHHHH! LOL
Go England!


Ashes to Ashes


(an ode to England)


Long hot summer days


old rivals battle


over an urn of ash


returned to their rightful home


18 years of lost pride


restored.


The crack of leather on willow


doesn't always sound hollow


unless your Austrailian


of course. :)

Excellent Ode here ol Chap, marvellous piece of play, the seagulls must of been flying right side up for a change hehe.
I'm not sure but I think all the years we had claim to the Ashes, though they were incarcerated in an English Museum!! and never left Pommy soil ahem... our SAS actually took on an elite operation, removed them outa the urn and neatly placed some charred chops off the Barbi. But you would have to Check with the ICC about that :P

Jolly Good show old Chap.

Sums cricket up, don't it... fighting to the deadly-dull death over an eggcup of charred wood. Boys will be boys, I guess. If they ended up in my house, I'd take the top off and use them to absorb the spilled Chateauneuf du Pape off the white tablecloth! Well, at least they'd have a use. So, bring 'em on round and we'll celebrate! :)) XXXXXXXX wotsKriket Kate xx

Paul,

I don't understand cricket, but your enthusiasm for the sport clearly shows. That's how Americans feel about baseball and football (not the soccer kind). :) Well written celebratory write! Congratulations!

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla. :)
