fish Certainly sorts out the lv

. . . Au contraire.

One turns one's back on a simple DHL, and now look where we are . . .

Stalled in Covent Garden . . .

However, a slightly less-than-simple resolution presents itself - the Monday First-Hour Peverill's Plummet (Orpington, 93 - All Comers, closing session, Knapthwaite v Smethurst):

London Bridge

Lv manageable (barely); Rv/Lv out of the brown range, nudging the red range, but stability attainable with delicate handling

Arrow Wellingtons Charge

You just can't teach it!

Bravo, M'Lud!

Delicacy and panache!

Maintaining the balance, and continuing the theme:

Teach M'lud? Perish the thought. He schools us all quite regular like.

Theme-schmeme but no time for anything fancier than

Heron Quays.

One is misunderstood.

One's comment was entirely valedictory.

Also no time for depth or breadth.

Heron Quays to Rickmansworth, long established as one of Emily Von Tibia Leggets most challenging advances. In the NAPOLI challenge cup 1927, inspectors had to examine her: It was put about, that she had a small assistant concealed beneath her vast dress.

Gentlemen,

Snoop . . . a small assistant concealed beneath her vast dress

It was much rumoured at the time that said small assistant was none other than Reginald Hinge-Smyth, nephew of our much beloved Mrs Trellis. While there was no courtroom quality evidence, it was discussed only in hushed tones in the polite Neapolitan society of the day.

MC adherents had to conduct their affairs under cover of darkness whenever said gentleman was known to be in the vicinity.

That said, the diminutive chap was to be seen in many parts of the city for the next decade or so, both within and without those voluminous skirts. The game was never quite the same thereafter.

Enough. M'Lud's mastery poses a good challenge - who will rise?

Actually, Canada Water is not far wide of a very strong Imperial Theme; and was deployed to great effect in the Franco-Prussian event (q.v.). If memory serves, Flensburger secured a spot in the quarter finals with just such a move, reducing le Fleurie de Monpassant to very Gallic tears . . .

A whimsical hop:

King George V

god save the king! hurrah!

Bravo Gentlemen! the standard of play astounds me. One is almost discombobulated. Almost. Long live the King indeed, however there weas only ever one king and he lived in Memphis. He loved peanut butter, and bananas no doubt and had quite the passion for bacon. The closest i can come to that is:

West Ham

Well, it's the Glorious 26th of August - how come nobody has played the Triple Extension Option (1957 Addendum 13.3.4)?

Okay, I'll do it myself:

Southwark - London Bridge - Bermondsey

Mmmmmmmmm.

I must update my rulebook. Shame the 26th wasn't on a Friday, really. Could have had fun with that.

Easing the way back towards the North, and with a nod to the earlier Imperial theme,

Regents Park

Different thinking to that which we've had for a while. Interesting.

Ho hum. A much riskier move than I've done in a long while, big danger of crossing someone's path. Could be a crash, but let's try it.....


Shepherd's Bush Market.

Yes, we're in difficult territory here. I'll add stability by easing over to Westminster or Westminster or Westminster

OK, boring but safe.

Westminster?

Stability?

One wonders whether any of one's fellow voyagers has actually been anywhere even near Westminster recently . . .

Boring? Agreed, but stable? Hmmmmmmmmm . . .

Sticking with instability:

Inmann's Inversion:

South Acton

Safety be damned . . . . . . . . . . .
