It seems a couple of readers were somewhat disappointed with my post Forging. Apparently they were expecting something entirely different. Sorry. That post is in the works and will appear at some stage.
A few other readers were bemused with the unimaginative title of the post L for Leather. The title was a (not very clever) play on the twelfth letter of the Cockney Rhyming Alphabet, which is itself, a play on the phrase Hell for Leather.
Following is the full Cockney Rhyming Alphabet for those unfamiliar with it.
A for ‘orses (hay for horses)
D for Kate (defecate)
E for Adam (Eve or Adam)
F for pheasants (effervescence)
G for police (Chief of Police)
H for retirement (age for retirement)
J for oranges (Jaffa oranges)
K for cavemen (cave for cavemen)
M for sis (emphasis)
N for lope (envelope)
O for the rainbow (over the rainbow)
P for a penny (pee for a penny)
Q for the loo (queue for the loo)
S for you (it’s for you)
T for two (tea for two)
U for mism (euphemism)
V for España (Viva España!)
X for breakfast (eggs for breakfast)
