E-S is right some form of bowel-grip is all that is needed (not the seagulls you understand?).

Thank heavens for Sir Humphrey Davy. We must have more concern for our Canary population., not to mention the cost of painting the accommodation so regularly.

Jan Smuts managed with one, so can the rest of us. Loose and stinking smut have one, think that is enough.

Casablanca seems very quiet.

Leaving tomorrow for Porto, Portugal to replenish #3 starboard deep tank with Varley's favourite -- the original non the less.

I do so trust this liquid replenishment is of suitable vintage. Our Electrical/Radio officer prefers a fine old vintage!

Spoken like a man whose wine merchant is Mr Lidl and in times of plenty Mr Aldi.

My Fizz does come from Aldi but not the port. The port comes from Pieroth, the only offering of theirs I entertain. A diversion courtesy of the late Omar:

And much as Wine has play'd the Infidel,
And robb'd me of my Robe of Honor -- well,
I often wonder what the Vintners buy
One half so precious as the Goods they sell.

Black Bush, 8 years in sherry casks and you don't like the "foreign muck"? It is as foreign as, as, as, Grapes!

I have rolled a barrel to his cabin, but I am sure he will need at least another before his taste notes are complete.

Varley, just bang on the pipes if your power of speech deserts you.

8 years in a sherry cask before you can drink that damned hooch? I wouldn't even do a day in the barrel forfeit to be allowed to drink port (beer, gin, gripe, cognac etc.). Are you allowed company and a deck of cards?

A touch of quality tawny port in a couple of oz. of Pussers makes a lovely night-cap.

P.s. Will be AWOL for the next day or three as I have to go to the Big Smoke, (Hongcouver), where they are going to make me glow in the dark and stick me into a round tube thingy to see how my cancer is progressing, or not. I'll be radio active for about 24 hours, so Varley might even be able to pick me up on the Short Wave.
