The title of this blog comes from a Gaelic expression -"putting on the poor mouth"-which means to exaggerate the direness of one's situation in order to gain time or favour from creditors.
Interesting and fun (and I recall your own chance immigration encounter with Mr Armstrong). Coincidentally this week I had reason to consider which living human I would most like to have a long conversation with over a fine dinner, and I rather easily selected Buzz Alrin. That's right, Buzz, not Neil, for several reasons. A much more complex and interesting man than Neil, in my opinion. Most other people seem to want to talk to politicians, pop singers or actors. Yuk. Give me Buzz please.
"Aldrin" Andrew, Aldrin, not "Alrin" For F's sake!
Now Buzz Aldrin would be a fine choice Andrew. Armstrong has always been rather coy about his achievement but Aldrin has a lot to say.Best of all I love that he is not averse to decking the odd Moon landing denier. Good for him!Ah dear Don I am sure Andrew has had a long day. Please indulge the occasional typo
Sorry Don. Long day indeed Jams. I've been to Mull and back as my blog now reveals. Quite a trip for a one day outing, but a good one. Now I can't sleep as I am over-tired (a conundrum I never could understand) Heck I hope that is how to spell conundrum for I sense the Don is quite near.
2nd last, nay penultimate even, sentence. Missing full stop. Unforgivable! And I am so near I could touch you Andrew, and I will, with a mighty smite just as soon as you sleep. Goodnight. And why is my sweet tired lady Dulcinea resting so close to you? I am confused. Are all our greatest battles the battles we fight with ourselves?
That is quite a long day trip Andrew. But I bet the scallops were good!Oh dear are you being cuckolded my dear Don?
One of us is... Or both? I fear the recent swarm of typos that you attacked me with have got me seeing double and wondering rather confuddledly if there is more than one side to my personality. Is it possible, I wonder, that I may be slightly mad?
My dear Don you are not mad, just pleasantly eccentric!
