Fanny in a Flap

My Frank used to call pigeons “Rats with wings”. A few years back we were visiting the Palace of Westminster in London. We had just treated ourselves to a Mr Whippy when the quarter hour chimed from Elizabeth Tower. A flock of the vermin were startled by the sound and flew straight towards us, making me mess my oyster right down Frank’s trouser leg. Despite this, he managed to take a picture, from which I painted my watercolour later, AND keep his Screwball intact. It’s being renovated now and I can’t be the only one happy to see that bell end.
