Week Clue
1 Stone the crows, look who it is. It's me, Scarecrow. Hi! I hope I didn't frighten you. Who am I kidding, I haven't scared anyone in years. That's the trouble with old charity clothes and a wonky, knitted smile. I'm just too cute. I'm wearing the latest up-cycled season. But the pesky crows, they just aren't scared of me. But I take great pride in my work, I've really dug in and I'm well grounded. And the best bit, I get to choose my pose every morning. I'm so excited, tonight is no night off. Break a wooden leg!
Us scarecrows are prone to creaking. We got the short straw. Some sort of curse. So, it's very important that I look after myself. These old timber arms are always well oiled. Believe me! And I might be well stuffed but I don't stop jumping hurdles. Let's just say, I've won awards for being outstanding in my field. Breaking news - us scarecrows do have brains. I love to read and write you know? I've started more than one true crime. And I worked at The Times in my heyday. Time to timber up for my performance. Have I got you stuffed to who I am?
Being stuck here gives me plenty of time to reflect on my crow-spooking career. Working with Wes, the wooden scarecrow in the opposite field, was so much fun, until he snapped in two. The Dale farmer had to cobble him together. He had to make do and "mendies". I'm on the field, come rain or shine. Protecting the harvest. But I haven't always been a country girl. I love heading back to the city. Don't stop me now. I'm gonna rise to the top of the crop with tonight's performance.
Wow, better than a day on the farm. Have you worked out who I am? It's true! I'm a born decoy. But don't bail on me just yet. It's often been said that I don't let crows walk all over me, and I don't stand "steel". That's for sure. My scarecrow life has been exciting in so many ways. It all feels like a big dream! But its not the "Beale" all and end all. I've been so lucky in life. The wooden boards I've trodden on! Oops! What am I like? I gave you a few scoops there.
Its been so much fun hiding behind this mask. But it's not for the first time. It's been so great. It really has exceeded all expectations. But this isn't the last straw. Look where I am, the Final! Can you detect that it's not the end of me yet?
