Dinosaur Dreaming farewell 2010

Dig 17 comes to an end
and we must say farewell my friend.
One last bone query before the close
“It's FISH ” is said with wrinkled nose!

As “Good Morning Happy Diggers”
Rings out in Wendy's dulcet tones
The only answers heard each day
Were the assorted sleepy groans!

We've pumped 'n dug 'n broken stone
Just to find that elusive bone.
We've had heat and cold, rain and sun
We've shared much laughter and such fun.

4 film crews visited our Dig
Radio and print news was BIG.
Lesley the Star in all of this
With her Dig team – how could we miss!

The “blogspot” keeps us up-to-date
The whole production is First Rate.
The photos and the text are scanned
By diggers across every land.

Grateful thanks to every digger
But our special thanks are even bigger
- Wendy, Mary, John and Norman
For Bikkies, Groyne, Food and Foreman.

Dear Lesley, how can we thank you
For letting us be diggers too.
Your accolades and all the rest
Confirm to us – you are the BEST.

As we all go our separate ways
We will be counting up the days …..........
We'll meet again, dear Lesley Kool,
To work beside the Dreaming Pool.
