... Samantha is once again on hand to "big up" (as I believe the youngsters say) everyone's points...
.... My thanks to Samantha for taking me down into the archives and letting me rummage in her drawers until I was completely satified. Hot and sweaty work, and none too pleasant for our Sam I'm sure, but she stuck to the task without complaint until the job was done. As you can well imagine, this was a great relief for me!
... I'm now in an isolated village in the middle of a forest on the opposite side of Sweden. Besides, while Swedish is the second official language of Finland...
I didn't understand it last year so 'ere I go again from Camden
to King's Cross to OlumpicStadion or (you can opt for Stratford OlympicStoreStation overground).
Overground is useful as in these 'ard times and after nicking some wallets en route I commend to you Sleary's tactic to get rid of potential opponents which Samantha may not already have done for:
Sleary, in some haste, communicated the following
hint, apart to Mr. Bounderby.
'I tell you what, Thquire. To thpeak plain to you, my opinion ith
that you had better cut it thort, and drop it. They're a very good
natur'd people, my people, but they're accuthtomed to be quick in
their movementh; and if you don't act upon my advithe, I'm damned
if I don't believe they'll pith you out o' winder.'
Mr. Bounderby being restrained by this mild suggestion, Mr.
Gradgrind found an opening for his eminently practical exposition
of the subject.
'It is of no moment,' said he, 'whether this person is to be
expected back at any time, or the contrary. He is gone away, and
there is no present expectation of his return. That, I believe, is
agreed on all hands.'
And it means there'll be no bodies (for twoud be a naval funeral, pith'd out the winder into Stratford-atte-Bow canal and so no Mo rning (whoooooops.....) Wake, thus avoiding left over armada sherry, weevil-ham sandwiches and Xmas' stale ship's biscuit.
