The Mermaids Ball .

The mermaids ball music still lingers . Swordfish Fred and his shoal of sweet singers Had a whale of a time On the octopus slime Caressed by their salty fish-fingers .

An Irish double Sean ,congrats.Only caught the highlights (or lowlights in your'e English) still till time for Johnno to get it right on the night.Glad you guy learnt the lesson of Cardiff and booted the ball into touch.Thought Wales gifted the game to the French.Happily did not catch the game in Italy.Rgds Brian & thanks for your always welcome comments.
