WILLIE ECKERSLYKE TRIES CRICKET

My friend Willie Eckerslyke always wanted to play cricket in a reet proper cricket team,wearing sexy white clothes and a fashionable hat.  So he could go out and be in, then go in when he was out, and play at silly mid off.  What a sensible game.

Yesterday he was asked by a team, who were desparate for another player, to be first bat.  Well Willie with his luscious long legs looked the part wearing his helmet, his pads and his box.  Well eeeh by gum, he tried his hardest.  By 'ecky thump he did.   But looking at the photograph of him and what happened in the background, do you think he will be asked to play again? Willie Eckerslyke!!!



Have a great week one and all, wherever you are. xx

  2. I don't understand cricket so I'm not sure what I'm looking at… do like to cool white outfits the players wear… did Willie hit that fellow with the ball? Yikes… not good I'd imagine. Have a great week Polly… alway love your paintings, even if I don't understand them.

  4. Willie and his luscious long legs...I am guessing they did not ask him again. What a great painting and story!
