Word on the street is that Willie Walsh showed this to a major pan-industry gathering in Amsterdam today. Cheeky bugger

Does this mean that you have started wearing an upper body clothing item usually worn by ladies ?

Funny how ones perception of time passing varies. 30th July 1966 seems soooo long ago but 1st May 1976 seems like only last month.

Mad Danglers

I was just going to say there's only one of them out there tonight. But then, lo and behold, another one joined him. The strange thing is that instead of walking along the foreshore from the Ferry Inn, he scrambled down the excessively steep and high bank from the top (we're talking about a 60' near-vertical drop) in the dark and cold, with just one of those little head torches on. I'd have thought twice before attempting it in broad daylight. He'd have needed both hands to grab the trees and shove the bushes aside on the way down. I do not wish to speculate where he may have put his angling gear, but he sure as heck wouldn't have been able to carry it.

Curiouser and curiouser.

All I need now is a set of net curtains to twitch.........

Getting down a 60ft near-vertical drop (with or without angling equipment - lowered on a rope?) isn't as difficult as getting back up again).

The rewards must be worthwhile.

It might be worth having a friendly word with the Coastguard.

Perhaps the Royal Marine training budget has been cut and this is a way to train them one by one?

I didn't think of that. Mind you, wouldn't there be some sort of gnarly RSM-type effing and blinding at him from the top?

Now you see this is how things get forgotten.
On holiday in the south of the country for a few days so only logging on at night, leads me to be late on parade wishing angels an Apple Birdath

Finally gave up on the idea of getting any sleep at 0600 so now up an contemplating breakfast. Bacon and egg would be nice - if I had any bacon - so reckon it'll be a fried banana sandwich

Poachers?

From the full moon in November, also known as the Poacher’s Moon, until late December, poaching reaches a peak with organised criminal gangs targeting deer and salmon for the Christmas market.
