Good old thing
One of the most entertaining characters in cricket today is Henry Blofeld. He has a wealth of cricketing knowledge and gives the impression of being a "bit" absent minded, the reason for this is explained in this talk. He also confesses why he calls people "old thing " and " my dear old thing ". A fantastic evening with Blowers a positive suggestion to read.
Even better than I'd hoped
Blowers on splendid form, genuinely witty and warm. I'd hesitated a bit over getting it but think this'll be something I listen to plenty of time over the years.
Very glad I bought it.
I'd love to hear his auto biography A Thirst for Life: With the Accent on Cricket (or even something more recent) on Audible.
