132 EVERGREEN Autumn

132 EVERGREEN Autumn Disguised Victorians The following are all anagrams of famous Victorians. Can you decipher them? 1. I cover antique 2. Cable printer 3. Dismal inaner jibe 4. Hell! Darn! Algebra exam 5. The central robot 6. Screw handrail 7. Inviting odd slave 8. America half day 9. Nervy Irish grin 10. Abhorred sewer gang Destination Unknown! Keen walker and photographer, Paul Makepeace, from Churchdown in Gloucestershire, made the following discovery while out and about on his travels. In terms of signpost stupidity, we think this one really does top them all. That is, of course, unless you know different! Paul tells us: As a child in the 1950s, my parents regularly took my brother and myself out for country walks in the wonderful Derbyshire Peak District. In my teens I took part in long-distance hikes with the Scouts and other organisations. During that time I do not remember seeing many signs indicating public footpaths. We had to rely on the impeccable Ordnance Survey maps, observation and a compass. Even at the advent of the Pennine Way National Trail in 1965 signage was not in abundance. It has been very helpful over the last few years that public footpaths have been better signed by County Councils either by fingerposts or vertical posts with discs showing the various longdistance pathways and trails. This year I walked the 100-mile Gloucestershire Way from Chepstow to Tewkesbury, via Gloucester and Stow, and it is encouraging while walking in unknown areas,

However, the waymark pictured (right) near Churchdown, could cause confusion to the unwary, as Down Hatherway does not exist! I wonder if the person creating the waymark had William Shakespeare on his mind, as the village is actually called Down Hatherley. ***** On the same subject a witty sign (see below) was spotted by Graham and Lynne Bebbington, from Trentham, Staffordshire, when they were on a recent visit to the delightful town of Burford in Oxfordshire. Obviously there’s much good cheer to be found inside this local hostelry! Pithy Puns Our man in Australia, Ian Laing, always likes to keep us chuckling and here’s his latest supply of pithy puns: The fattest knight at King Arthur’s Round Table was Sir Cumference. He acquired his size from too much pi. She was only a whisky-maker, but he loved her still. No matter how far you push the envelope, it’ll still be stationery. Two silk worms had a race. They ended up in a tie. Time flies like an arrow; fruit flies like a banana.
