Scally, Scally Pride Of Our Alley


This is the final blog post of 2023

"Pies and Prejudice" by Stuart Maconie is an excellent read and I have reached chapter three, whose title I have chosen for this post. The writing, for me, is excellent and I can't skim-read it for fear of missing something. I must admit that Douglas Adams' "Mostly Harmless" had me skim-reading.

Anyway, Stuart has taken us through Crewe, Warrington and Wigan and explained the difference between Rugby League and rugby Union.

So sixty pages in I will probably be finished in less than six months.

He is also an excellent writer and DJ and worth checking out in print or on the BBC. 

If you want to buy a book of my poetry there is one on the link below.

I recently discovered that my American Amazon Author page has a feed from this blog which you can see here. It only shows on the .com site but not on others. C'est La Vie.

The music is "Long Tall Scally" by Pete Wylie as I found the Gerry Monroe song from which the title was stolen (Sally not Scally) still makes my blood run cold.
