I must suppose that after the dinner at All Souls you were part of the crowd who went to sing one song to the tune of another on Magdalen Bridge, before playing a short round of Cheddar Gorge before breakfast at that superb guest house owned by Mrs Trellis's cousin.

Ah. I fear we must have an amnesty in that direction. Suffice to say that I have never set foot in Mob Quad since and that Mrs Trellis's cousin departed shortly afterwards for a lengthy sojourn in the Cameron Highlands of Malaysia.

Bond Street; well, I suppose a post-Moriarty lateral is just about acceptable on a Friday, although Schulzmeiner would definitely have had something to say about applying the radial form of Goldberg in quite that way. Perhaps a fast move to Amersham would be wise at this stage to avoid the difficulty.

Amersham he bucks the trend!. That may not be the exact quote Seamless Pinchbeck but no matter.

Upper Holloway

Very nice indeed, but there may be a minor transgression here. Arnos Grove was one of the stations designed by Charles Holden if I'm not mistaken, and there's something in Venkman (q.v.) to the effect that a bilateral from a Holden station to Upper Holloway has to be tesserated first. I can't recall chapter and verse -- perhaps it's in either the 1974 Annex or Vol 3 of the Apocrypha -- but if so, the move would have to invoke an untesserated bilateral. That being so, one of the Hounslows would be the obvious choice.

One's recall was not flawed - Charles Holden it was.

Further examination of one's own archives reveals the detail: Vol 3 of the Apocrypha, 14th Annexe, codicil to the closing remarks - one stands corrected, and suggests (from the choice available at this post-crepuscular hour):

Hounslow East, to establish equilibrium

Splendid -- many thanks. I believe the only copies of Vol 3 now surviving are in the Bodleian and in the Library at Hinton Place; one wonders of what became of poor old Goldberg's collection? Presumably dispersed in the aftermath of that business at Brasenose.

Crowleigh, as usual, is in error and I suspect you'd be most unwelcome at Clarence House if you dislocated West Acton without a Tiresias. Onwards to Ruislip Gardens!

True, but the latest amendment expands upon that rule, limiting it to (and I quote):

Therefore, M'Lud's delicate offering stands, and its genesis is indeed a focus for scholars (and neophytes eager to hones their skills).

. . . the aftermath of that business at Brasenose
If one's recollections are on the money, one shudders, but was it the clandestine nocturnal raid by the cads from Merton, when poor Cruikshank had his gaiters incinerated in situ, or the regrettable after-match function at Cropredy where during a lull in the Civil War, an ad-hoc MC match was ruined by mead-sodden oiks from Banbury, who cared little for the courtesies of the game?

(and the less said about the proclivities of Tiresias the better! The harsher-minded of our community would argue that he got what was coming to him - but one digresses . . .)

One proceeds with due diligence:

I am perplexed indeed grateful to the chair maker, for had I not been seated one feels the legs might have given way.
Might I be so bold as to suggest that was A.B. Crimond Snr?

M'Lud's recollection is as sharp as ever; A.B. Crimond Snr *, it was. A sad loss to the cause . . .

Those were the days. Could set up an M.C. tournement almost anywhere. Now due to the fan base, we play on the internet. Could not stomach the idea of 50,000 watching everymove: price of fame eh.

Thread drift

At the risk of being accused of thread drift, The Times to-day reports that the USA tube system in New York has accepted money to re-name one of its stations after a (British) bank that wishes to be better known in New York. I will not mention its name as I do not wish to give it publicity.
Purely on the basis of humour - and one is certain that LT under Boris would not accept money to re-name tube stations - what airlines would we attach to different stations?
Thoughts such as BA - Cockupfosters
........................EZY - Kenton - a truly low cost station
........................MK - Aldwych - a closed station

and so on.

No, not really.

Nowadays you need 23 certificates from evil little parasites from the local authority to get past Health and Safety regs.

They could not allow the ripple of enthusiasm of seeing Cruikshank in full flow, now, could they?

Quite. The hush of the crowd, those frissons at class manoeuvring, the restrained but appreciative appreciation of expertise . . .

What might Cruikshank have ventured by way of continuation, one ponders . . ?

Do you remember the hush that fell on the crowd in front of the sheer genius of von Beiderbeck when he played his reverse Rumboldt triple escape?

And these evil little beings believe that MC players have to be licenced?

I am beside myself.
