From Kinkson's Companion to MC Turnament Play (1937 edition), the direction and length of your move will allow me to claim:

Dear me . . .

One takes one's eye off the ball for a day or so, and things grind to a halt...

Relief is at hand, as with another serendipitous juxtaposition, one finds oneself not a million miles from the esteemed Richo77, and therefore able to advance to

Well, well, well (yes that's 3 holes in the ground for our Irish contingent). Seeming as i am so Esteemed, the move speaks for itself.

Queensbury.

Disgraceful! This farce has gone on long enough. Why has the standard of play dropped so low? It's worse than that of Tottenham (Court Road) Hotspur.

I have yet to find a reference in any of the great works of MC: perhaps my learned collegues could provide.

One must correct you.
It was Missy Vampton a southern Belle. One had practised campanology but she was too fast for my old legs, so no ringing!

These moves remind me of the Australian version of the game.

Many years ago when I visited Australia, there was a local version of the game called Australian Rules MC on which the play was with sheep stations. Gameplay revolved around MacMaster Camp.

Normal play would involve a strategem based on sheep paths yet play would evolve to what at best could be termed roo paths.

Gameplay here has certainly taken on the persona of roo paths.

With that, I take a hop, skip and a jump to

Excellent!

Continuing the Weekend Extremity Principle, one shall proceed in the manner of Macropus Oscillatus*, to

I would be awed if indeed this was confirmation that the line was indeed extended to the Comonwealth of Virginia.

If on the other hand you only meant the Comonwealth of Surrey, then I would have to counter with

Sadly, yes - one has been called a bluff old traditionalist, and much though one might enjoy an excursion to the Western Colonies, no doubt by an extension of the Piccadilly Line, Surrey was the aforesaid Home County..

All this bounding 'twixt the extremities consumes much of one's tippling energy (much to be avoided, especially on Sunday afternoons), so a more leisurely shunt to

Manor House

. . . avoiding, of course, any anti-clockwise diagonals!

As you have mentioned the weekend and weekends are for visiting the country, I will play a double half clock-wise diagonal with a quarter screw and lead us to

Oh, fine move, sir! One does enjoy dusk singles play.

If the modus operandi of current game play can be correlated to ethnic dishes then I will cross travel to

It's good but it's not right ( Roy Walker 1981). You could try Barack Ovala.

Very puzzling move indeed.

Reminds me of the Junior Conductor trials of '53 when Agness Morris from Bath made a tournament grand slam with a similar move.

Carefull I shall edge out
