The rules of this sport are a bit murky...I have always found them difficult to fathom...
Bill Phillips: Anything goes Ray.
Funny title - beautiful image Bill!
Bill Phillips: It is a corny old joke Elizabeth

Scotsman, Englishman and an Irishman go to the games, but they have no tickets.

The Scotsman notices material left over from construction of the Olympic villiage, picks up a manhole cover, puts it under his arm, walks up to security at the gate and says...

" Jock McTavish, Scotland, Discus" and walks in.

Englishman sees this and picks up a length of scaffold and says....

" Nigel Pilkington-Smythe, England, Pole vault" and walks in.

The Irishman not to be outdone, picks up a roll of barbed wire and says.....

"Patrick Murphy, Ireland, Fencing"

Yes it is - and it isn't
Bill Phillips: Well there you are then...we are going to Belmont Priory today as it is open as part of the national heritage weekend and looks interesting. I might get a two week series out of it

And you jumped over the fence? Oh, I recall the sad situation of the Chinese sprinter who did hurt his Achilles's tendon after the first jump ... I hope you are well after having dived into this watery paradise...
Bill Phillips: It is always sad when an athlete has an injury like that. all the work preparing gone in a split second.

Oh dear we are back to dreary grey with only the title to cheer us.
Bill Phillips: This is art mate!!
Thinking Olympics and then thinking fencing then thinking. Your image, I thought, immediately of pole vaulting and then I read you response to EBV. I think I either have to get out of bed a lot earlier or better still just stay in bed.
Bill Phillips: It is a very old joke and I recommend staying in bed...but not today because it is going to be warm and sunny and we are going out for the day in a few minutes time
Did the Olympics take place so long ago? You get me confused Bill!
Bill Phillips: It is going to seem a distant memory soon. The Paras end on Sunday and the shops are already selling Christmas stuff....back to normal

A remarkable photo Bill in that everything seems to be extremely sharp and in focus! But not as remarkable as you describing Tiff as a very decent human being!
Bill Phillips: Well he is really he just hides it well
