    Then I suspect steeplechasing is flat out of the question.

    I’ve been watching for YEARS now and NEVER have I seen a steeple on the run.
    They’re usually way up on a steep roof where nobody could get to ’em, anyway, so why WOULD they run?
    “Steeple chasing” – must be one of those urbane myths, or whatever you call them.

    Unnormal,BS You took the words out of my mouth. I have also gotten a creak in my neck looking up at steeples and waiting for the chase. I took the advive of a eight year old and laid down on the grass while waiting. I found that the chase must of taken place while I was napping. I love sleeping in the grass during thease spring days. Must go now,the icecream truck is near.

    OK, looks like GatoCat has given us a challenge…..What rhymes with people and steeple? It’s not as hard as orange, purple or silver to rhyme is it? At least people has one rhyme..

    Pony has flights of fancy as wide and deep and high and fine as she does…slightly different…wonderful perspective on the tightrope’s abyss below…vultures and open New Mexico type space…thanks for morphing my reality-outlook this morning…

    It’s called “steeplechase” because a couple of centuries ago in rural England they used to run riding races between villages where the competitors raced from the church (steeple ) of one village to the next. You knew where you had to go because the steeple was visible from quite a distance when you were riding across fields.

    it is a safe bridge…a bunch of eagle scouts built it, right before they were shipped out to fight in south vietnam.

    You’ll find a place to gather
    beneath a pointy steeple

    And tho there’s room for many
    there ain’t so many people

    Which will not pay the bills
    the way a big ol’ heap’ll

    The Doodles Weaver recording of Eleanor Rigby has a couple of rhymes, but I don’t think they are real words.

    I don’t think that it is a fear of heights. I’ve noticed the same thing about some horses when faced with a wood-decked bridge, be it open or covered, or with a wooden floor with a hollow beneath. It seems to be the echo of the hoofbeats that they don’t like. No doubt Wiley has noticed the same thing and inferred a different reason. Whatever the source of the behaviour it is just that little bit of reality that makes us relate better to the strip.
