Those of you who follow this blog will probably know that I am currently unaware of the meaning of an idiom relating to dogs belonging to meat sellers. However, recently, another idiom has caused trouble - purple patch. Is that, like, some kind of streak?

I'm talking winning streaks here, not naked people.

  • Sigh* I can't win, can I? Anyway, if you don't hear from me quite as much, there is a good reason: Wimbledon starts tomorrow! Will there be any 'purple patches', whatever they are???

Answers would be well recieved.
