KR, Yes, not very inspiring was it. Rather like Samuel J's comment about women and preaching (apologies Patricia Ann). Musicologically difficult I have no doubt but not worth the bandwidth to download (which second time around it did).

(Of course, a reciprocally happy Easter to you as well).

Chief? I read elsewhere the Second is looking for another berth. If he wants to drop out perhaps we should rig up the platform from which he will demonstrate this feat. 2 metres should be high enough to discourage a second attempt - perhaps, too, a safety noose?

(Do not suggest a soft landing padded with your yet to be laundered (burned) Stay-Fresh jobbies. He'd break every bone in his body).

Hanging is too good for him, a good kick up the arse is what's needed

If you 'do let him go' Chief please make sure he leaves the keys to Fort Knox for his relief. He doles out the WD40 as if I might use it on a Strowger exchange and even accused me of using it, shall we say, intimately.

Fort Knox is my demesne, lock, stock and barrel. I will give the keys to my relief and any whippersnapper interfering will get the two smoking barrels.

Mackeson substitute! Now we'll not get either of them back for days. I'll be stuck below with PipSqueek or whatever he calls himself just to keep the light on.

In the current climate are those going ashore obliged to wear face nappies?

Well, they'll probably be sh*t faced when they come back so seems appropriate.

Well said Mr V, and they've probably talked a fair bit of it as well.

The answer to my query is 'yes' then?
Too much bother for me, I'll pass, but doubt I'll be missed.

Malcolm you're one of the gang, on the team so to speak. All for one and one for all, get your glad rags on, a fetching medical mask in your pocket and be at the gangway in 10 minutes.
You shan't be missed because you'll be with us.

How kind, I don't suppose it has anything to do with the shiny credit card in my wallet..

A shiny credit card, why didn't you say so, we would have ordered a taxi. Tmax's legendary parsimoniousness enables him to smell un-maxed-out credit cards at a hundred paces. You are now his bestest friend.
Hey Mr Bartender we'll have a tray of Armagnac Cee Voos Plez.

Have a care. It's only polished because no one accepts them cobweb covered.

Well spotted Mr V, it is perhaps the result of it being slid out of my wallet rather too frequently.

Ah Ha I detect the aroma of a virgin credit card Methinks the lad has a lot to learn polishing his Visa in such reprobate company, I shall take this innocent abroad and instruct him in the way of getting on the good side of an injuneer.

Mine is a pint of Creme de Menthe and a double Black Bush chaser

Hey Ho, here we go.
I wonder whether the bank will accept that I 'lost' it somewhere while slightly inebriated.

btw - what happened to the word 'round'?

They'll believe everything but 'slightly'.

Probably once in your life you 'lost' it somewhere while slightly inebriated. This will now become a weekly occurrence as Varley has hollow legs; BB, FJ and BS don't require a crate of Mackeson's but have a liking for Black Bush. Being Aussie Casey Jones is a pleasure to take ashore as he will drink anything and the cheaper the better.

The word 'round' just ain't in our vocabulary, we leave that sort of behaviour to the Bank Line and Cunard-Brocklebank.

'... Being Aussie Casey Jones is a pleasure to take ashore as he will drink anything and the cheaper the better ...'

Is he the one who buys red wine at $5 bottle, drinks half a glass, puts it in the fridge, pours another half glass tomorrow and then blows it round to room temperature in the microwave ???????

If so I'll stick to Coke and Vegemite thank you.

You are in danger of setting a good example and could loose face if you don't take up a bad habit. Start smoking cigars or a pipe, chewing tobacco is acceptable but you mustn't dribble. A light ale could rehabilitate you.
