Won't work, I've gottcha!!
But he/she gives me lots of new ideas to get on about, and for this sole reason I shall leave the anony mouse happily in his/her camouflaged winter quarter, where hopefully the good fairies will take care of him/her!
This time, he/her has given me the idea to blog about the deeply personal subject of "Fish and Chip shops". You see, he used my mate's (in brackets)name just once too often in vain.
I will start collecting my material, immediately, but over this weekend I have part II of "Hungerford" to do (this time actually over the Bridge to the 'other wine bar' at the Royal Festival Hall, back over the Bridge to the pub in the ????????? Street, and then who knows?
Harry Ramsden (bless 'im), London's 'rock salmon', Yorkshires 'fish scones', and the most ridiculous thing to sell in a chippie 'black peas in Lancashire style' - will all have to wait- just like the fish waited for a battering. A little phrase from those days, in advance:- "Made of brown paper and chip-shop vinegar".
Any of you know of the origins of this now much neglected phrase?
(let me know under 'comments').
That is, I think, the field, and my brain, cleared up a little, to really attack the part II so much awaited by you all (and by myself).I'm off to look for a smiley about 'the British ritual of Fish and Chips - without curry sauce" - if I can't find one, I shall create one - ALL BY MYSELF!! Finally - to clear the field, I will give you all a photo of A.N. ONY-MOUSE" - serves him/her right!!
