Ah, more of those Crush characters!…

But first…
Dulltown, UK/Europe: Today’s confused film stars are: Melen Hirren and Hom Tanks.

And speaking of people with odd names, I had an email this morning from Veronica Crush, writer from the glory days of the Hull Surrealist League, now living in New York with tall tree surgeon and heir to a multimillion dollar fortune, Monty Tick.
She attached a new batch of the best character names she has created over the last week or two; she says that she thinks up one or two every day, and she hasn’t any holes left in her recent stories to accommodate them all – so she likes to make them available, via my blog, to those poor writers who, haven’t the imagination or wit to come up with decent names themselves!
She also asked me what my views were on Brexit – but I said that I’d never heard of this strangely named thing – and that I had absolutely no idea what she was talking about.
As usual Veronica has mischievously slipped a real name into her list – see if you can guess which one it is – the answer is available via a link the foot of the page.
Oh, and by the way, I think that Veronica might use the same brand of handy spiral bound notebook that I use for my jottings – see photograph below (you may need to zoom in).
