Derek corner!

Well, I finally scraped together enough pennies to buy the latest issue of the Beano. Farmer Jack pays 25p if you clean one of his tractors, which is a fair deal. So I cleaned two over the weekend, which makes 50p and I also sold a bale of hay to Bernard the Goat for 35p (which farmer Jack doesn't know about), so I had enough to buy the Beano AND a 10p "chomp". Hooray!
I was nearly bowled over with surprise when I spotted the new feature on the letters page; Derek Corner! A lovely little spot to send in your drawings of ME. And already there was a snappy drawing of me dressed as Tarzan swinging on a snake, by William Hunt of Farnham. What a great idea and seeing as I'm so good looking, it should make a change from looking at all those other ugly mugs that normally get drawn.
It certainly cheered up a rainy miserable day and my chomp tasted even lovelier. Thanks ed!

Hi Derek
your fame is obviously spreading.Lenny will be very jealous (his balloon will be too.)but a 10p chomp and grass - you must be eating sticky toffee salad. yuk!

Yeah! Ha ha ha! Lenny must be well jealous. I would tell him but he's too busy eating grass with his balloon. In fact, I reckon I should have a "Lenny" corner, except with drawings that make him look stupid. I'll draw one later if I remember (I lost my pencil unfortunately).

Oh, and you can't beat a good grassy chomp, best thing since sliced bread.

Cool blog by the way. Who's Fat Tony? He sounds mad.

ooh so glad you like my blog esp. as you are an expert. Fat Tony is the pigeon equivalent of the new Airbus - he's the biggest pigeon in the world and leaves huge footprints on the lawn whenever he lands. all the local cats are terrified of him.
