yes, i saw that, stuart!
<P>actually once i toured around devon or dorset or somewhere, in a combi-van full of morris men!!!<P>sounds a bit rude, doesn't it? well, i suppose it WAS, but only in the primary-school level of their humour!
<P>they were the 'Bow Street Rappers' - the royal ballet's morris team. i took some good photos. it's a picturesque business, all that stopping in front of pubs and cathedrals to fling coloured ribbons and handkerchiefs about! -followed by 'a few' beers, of course...<P>the RB boys were more than happy with my presence, but some members of other morris teams loked quite askance at even the fact that a woman was in the same CAR as one of the other teams, let alone their fear that she might turn up at the pub!! the RB boys, of course, were so enlightened as to inhabit another planet entirely, from those neanderthals...
<P>each team seems to have their own culture - ranging from 'SNAGS' to types like hells angels without the bikes!<P>how did we get onto THIS!?<P>
