“I say Carruthers the PM has just sent me a note stating that Monty has triumphed over Rommel at El Alamein.”

“Has he by God. Is that like Backgammon then?”

“Do you know I think it may be? Ah, well sounds a jolly good result whatever. Shall we pop along to the club for a game of billiards and a snifter?”

“What a bloody good idea.”

    1. Thanks for the comment. Dug it out of the memory bank. I used to work in a firm where I didn’t realize the chairman was always pissed until I met him sober one day; the day he advised he was just off for a snifter! How’s the book coming along?

      1. I’m getting there… slowly… It turns out I’m quite easily distracted! Thanks for asking though Mike.

        I’ve actually been working quite hard on a very personal piece about my relationship with my old man. It’s nothing like any of the stuff on the blog. And though it hasn’t been approved yet, I’m hoping it will be a guest post on another blog. Will of course let you know when it’s up.

        Hope all is well with you and the wife sir. And Happy New Year.
