Ah, no wonder he fell off.

(As for E-S and his Gold Franc astonishment. At least he didn't have to work into on-board spondulicks, backwards from the SDR and a thing deeply in the exotica of MiMco, the CAF AKA currency adjustment factor).

Billy I want to borrow your hat and, so I believe, do most of your shipmates. We are blessed to have lived and worked in an era that encouraged us to buy our own homes and we worked in an industry that paid well enough to permit us to do just that. Of course family life suffered and relationships strained but the ends justified the means. I could go on but as one of my Ukranian Masters would say in broken English, in times of crisis, Life is Sheeeeet.

Does all this financial turmoil mean I have to fire up the old printing press again? Spondulices, Sheckles, Pesos, wonga, dosh you name it we print it.

As a standby I have Squeek and Eric refurbishing the credit card thingy, so far only Americal Express and Barclaycard but its early days so get your order in early for Christmas. usual terms apply cash only plus 50% off the top

Billy Boy, you and your Deck Apes appear to have dragged anchor across Nordstream 1 & 2 pipelines resulting in major nause in the Baltic. Start flogging the log or you and the Navigator are heading for Siberia. No not Nyhavn.

Thank heavens for that. What with that triple Naga cabbage'n'sprout curry we had yesterday I thought it was me. I should steer clear of my bicycle saddle too if I were you.

I'll get some flaps knocked up for the air intakes - in view of their proximity to the sanitary exhaust we might as well have them made permanent, also saves repeating the exercise if the Bolshies make a habit of it.

(If it helps in court I did hear the bubbling but it sounded just like E-S in the swimming pool).

Is that for you and Lady W, Sir W? Or have you persuaded my new M and QC to do a state visit?

(If the latter I am not sure the state of this state would be quite the sort of state the Head of State would expect).

Doesn't matter. If they are very VIPs then you keep 'em occupied. Usual thing, dwarf with flowers, scissors for cutting ribbon, something temporarily closed by ribbon to open (NOT the Suez crew room, not until the 'confectionary' has been returned to the 'baker' anyway), band of the Coalsteam Bards. You know the drill.

The rest of us will take advantage of your kind offer and you can join us when the Royal party has done a bit of hand shaking and gone (note to self - add to list: Off-duty Cut-outs and an extra dwarf or two as target hand shaking).

Hear Ye, Hear Ye, Hear Ye.
The BBC in its infinite wisdom has decided, on its second Channel, to invite us to let the IOM into our drawing rooms. This will happen at 19.00hrs this very evening. I hope they let the locals speak as it could be an eye opener.
Laxey, Laxey here we come.

The little "R" in the programme announcements stands for Rightly-reviewed. In other words it has been shown to the Islanders for their approval. That has been granted in order that the heathen may: Enjoy, marvel, express wonder, send postal order etc. etc.

Yeah I can vouch for how "picky" they are, they wouldn't let me in and me a injuneer to boot. I even mentioned I was a "friend" of Mr Varley but that only appeared to make things worse

Oh well Sir William is throwing a "hoolie" in the lounge so its partttttttaaaaaaayyyyy on

I have gathered together all the stewards from far flung nations who will sing;
Happy ‘versary’ to you - to the tune of happy birthday.
Just like they do on cruise ships.
One of them might even bring his guitar.

Sorry, in the interests of keeping them all happy that should read his, hers or their guitar

I have no major objection. Would he polish my epaulettes for me too? As for there being no pressure, I comment that most claim snugness makes the heart grow fonder.

I had hoped the plumbers would have relied on the pipes rather than flame-orange timpani. Even if a monkey can be taught to play.

He would put a shine on more than your epaulettes, Lord Vardy.......he has been attending to my sword for some years now.
During his army service he never had a single complaint when he looked after the Gay Gordons.......
....when in the RAF he was responsible for the hair gel issue of an entire squadron and during his time in the Navy he was voted the most popular sailor in the history of the submarine service.

You must have seen Lord Laxey on the far side of a Barron of Beef or this side of a snake and pigmy.
(Perhaps P........ is taboo) I await censure or worse.
