I scored a point! a whole point! What? you don't understand? You mean you don't play the points game? OH. Let me explain.

"So that's a Marsden's pub, The Sandpiper, like the Blaenau Wharf."
"Oh," I said with my Saturday head on and in full working order, "so they are all named after birds then"
Mr M laughed so hard he nearly forgot to move when the lights changed to green. When he could breathe again he said
"Yes, the twitchers come for miles to see a lesser-spotted Blaenau Wharf"
