As there seems to be quite a bit of artistic talent around here, I thought I would start a pencil sketch section .....

Wonderful! Have you seen the report that says that more and more older people are suffering from loneliness and have no social contact? Getting a hug to a woman 200 miles away at that speed may be one way of alleviating the problem!

I've just taken the drawing down, dusted it and added the cutting to the provenance papers on the back. I note that David has been hiding his light under a bushel. The label says it was framed by 'Tripps of Keynsham'. (Does anyone else remember Horace Batchelor of Keynsham?)

I have no light to hide Stanley I'm afraid, and sadly I do remember Horace  Bachelor. He used to advertise on R. Luxemburg where he  used to sell parts of a "permutation" on the football pools to the mugs of the day. In fact I believe it was a combination rather than a permutation, but I seem to be the only person to know or care that there is a difference.Smile
There seems to be no connection between the name Tripp, and mine. I went through all the BMD records for mine a couple of years ago, and of course saw all the Tripps as well. As I remember it, that  name seems to exist almost exclusively in the South of England  in a broad band across the whole country, with almost nil above the Midlands.

A brilliant write-up in the paper Conor, well done!

Tripps, you're not alone with wishing to preserve the distinction between your combinations and permutations, one does not wish to rise in the morning and make the mistake of donning one's permutations by mistake!

Being naturally averse to movement i find it hard to be as enthusiastic about your chucking as I am about your art, but I must not be this petty....so that sounds fantastic...that this chap might be coming to train you at college,  you deserve the best coaching there is!

Can't you just see someone posting on this site in about five years, "We had that bloke Farr on the site once......"

Crack on Conor but look after yourself. Remember that when you are too old to chuck a discus you will still be able to draw. Always good to be a world-beater in more than one discipline. I well remember a moment nearly 40 years ago when I was laid under a wagon in the rain lifting a 400lbs rear spring in place and it struck me that I needed to get qualified in something less physically demanding.....
