The I.O.M. had at least one football player, remember Norman Wisdom played in goal. I would say the I.O.M. WAS MORE OF A HILLOCK THAN A ROCK. I blame Norman for all the Albanians heading this way.

I do hate it so when one's family capital is rudely lowered. I note neither Sir Norman's nor the fictitious (but equally long suffering) Mr. Grimshaw's suffered such an indignity. And done by a shipmate, too - not carrying an Albanian passport are you, Rusty? (note position of comma. ", are you Rusty?" would be quite rude

(I may have to forego my junket on Thursday - Much as I was looking forward to it there is a tickle in my throat although there is still only one red line. Etiquette has changed since Covid. I wonder how acceptable it is to be 'abroad' with a cold?).
