Smooth Toppings and Really Awfully Good Crinkley Bottom

Crinley Bottom tables etc.

You ever heard of Crinkley Bottom? –
Oh – you know a few that gott’em! –
In Waterfall such place is found
Where live bands, playing, hang around,
And where, if you have starvery,
You sate it with a carvery.

Crinkley Bottom - 'Chapel'

Crinkley Bottom geese

Nude statues grace the wedding place,
And, snapping photos, girls will race
To back of ‘Adam’, where you find
They fondly stroke his smooth behind
With giggles fit to beat the band
And drown out  geese, which are on hand.

Crinkley Bottom - 'Chapel'

Crinkley Bottom - bridge

No pictures of such scenes I took –
At better things we took a look!
The apple pie, it was a dream,
And topped with lashings of smooth cream;
The friend we took there had a ball,
And so did we, grandkids and all.

    Nice rhyme. (Of an old mariner?)
    Question: do your granddaughters ever wear shoes?

      At least I don’t do the ‘Yea, slimy things did crawl with legs Upon the slimy sea’ bit!
      The answer to that question is: When they have to.
      I have been going barefoot a lot myself, recently, during these hottest months, and can even walk fairly briskly across gravel.

        Interesting. On all counts. Now I barely walk barefoot anymore. Too freaking cold in Mexico city, and I also realize it’s easier when you’re a child and don’t have to carry and adult weight. Gravel indeed? My, my. Oh. Briskly means: at a trot coz it hurts right?


  2. I love the sound of that apple pie💕

    Our Crinkley Bottom was OK at the time, Col, but very much of its day. And most definitely not as relaxing as the one of which you write!


  4. Crinkley Bottom was the setting for a TV show with Noel Edmunds – inane jokes, bright orange gunge falling on inaner celebs… Mister Blobby – you get the picture. Nothing like the setting for your delightful outing!
