A Continued Effort in (slow) Progress

This might not make a lot of sense unless your name is Mike or you read this post first.

Meanwhile, a long time ago in a corridor far, far away.

“Will I ?” (Queen’s castle A1 trots off to C1, maybe?)

“Hellooo ?”

“Won’t I ?” (Queen’s castle trots off to D1 perhaps?)

“Hellllooooooo? Anyone there? Hello?”

“Will I? Won’t I?”

“Heeeellllllloooooooooooooo???! Where is everyone???”

“Will I join the dance?” (Queen’s castle trots off to E1!)

“Ah, good morning vicar!”


“I said good morning vicar.”

“I’m not a vicar, you ignoramus, I’m a BISHOP – Look at the hat! You don’t get this just for being a vicar; Idiot! Who are you? And WHAT in God’s name are you doing standing behind me?”

“The name’s Jill - your popeness - named after me father, tough bugger he was, I’m the keeper of the West Tower and I was looking for the dance?”


“Yeah, the dance, isn’t that where everyone is?”

“What ARE you rattling on about?”

“The dance, or is it fancy dress – I like the string vest.”

What are you talking……….what’s that?




“Behind you, that -- black smoke?”

“Ah yeah, that was the explosion.”


“Yeah, engineers, lights – you know how it is”.

“No, I don’t”.


“Shouldn’t you be doing something about it?”

“Why me?”

“Well you’re the only one down here, aren’t you?”

“What about you?”

“I’m a bloody bishop mate!”

“Really? I thought it was fancy dress for the dance.”

“What are you prattling on about?”

“The Dance!”


“There isn’t?”

“No, they are all at the battle!”

“What battle?”




“Cor, blimey, some people, well I know when I’m not wanted!” (Queens Castle trots back to A1)

Think. Think.

“Yes!!!” Bishop(E2) to C4.

So, If you are not Mike and you haven't given up on me after that why don't you get a cup of tea and do The Bitsnbobs Quiz of the Year (thereis a big prize for the winner!!) Click here. The Bitsnbobs Quiz of the Year.

As soon as I finish off all my work and have a chance to relax, I will enjoy sitting down and taking part in your quiz. This will be just after Xmas Day, I hope!

I've had a quick peak and the questions look challenging. Look forward to it!
