Pat Morton, Brewmaster and a great lover of cricket, commissioned The Temperamental Artist to knock up a new label.

"Think Village Green, and church bells.." he instructed. "A nice rural theme," he continued, absently stepping forward to an imaginary crease to fend an imaginary ball way over to the imaginary onside boundary in the brewery typing pool...

The Temperamental Artist fidgeted as the Famous Cricketer before him explained, in outline, exactly what he wanted.

"What do you think?"

"What? Umm..? Oh.. er.. yes.. er... I've got it, me."

He picked up a crayon from out of his bag, grabbed the open diary and began sketching all over the first weekend in July.

"OK.. Look at this. Didn't you say something about balls bouncing off a crease? I've got this great idea - it's like this.. and this.. "

"GOOD GRIEF! - NO!" shouted the brewer, ripping the page from the diary and shredding it into thousands of unrecoverable pieces. "You'll get us all busted!"

The artist stood uncomprehending as even more words whistled over his head.

"I want ... think 'playing the game.' Give me flannel. I want a load of balls, but most of all, something typically reminiscent of the Old Country. Put the whole emphasis on... bats.. B_a_t_s - not that," he gestured, shuddering. towards the flames licking the waste basket. "Bats. Can you handle it?"

The Temperamental Artist nodded blankly, scratching the side of his neck with the spanner he'd just been using there.

"Bats? Are you sure?"

"Of course I'm sure. I can picture it now... the lush green, the leathery sound.. soaring through the air... "

The Temperamental Artist shuffled off, baffled but.. confidentused.
