  1. Gruttings follks.
    Have received a command from the boss, his Holiness Moltz the J, that you are missing me. How come? My contributions were years ago and then CARS disappeared and so did I.
    Good to see Ace, BroMu and a few others still cracking on. Hope you can translate this as unable to afford to replace the Mac, this is being typed on Ubuntu.
    Long live Gravesend and was it you fishing that captured the beluga whale?

  2. Good to know it’s been a voluntary hiatus, Nxxx. My wish for you is that a new iMac Pro float gently down from the sky onto your desk.

  3. Hurrah! Great to hear from you, my friend. I second the iMac floatiness (for me also, clearly). And yes, we have indeed had another ‘whale incident’. You may recall we killed the last one. And Pocahontus. Apparently they take one look at Gravesend and keel over. Can’t think why . . .

  4. Nxxx: Ditto what Ace said. Or, to steal a line from Sallah: “My friend, I’m so pleased you’re not dead!” (Minor test of your movie knowledge.)

    John: Thank you. I owe you a beer the next time you’re in the Bay Area.

  5. Thanks guys but must confess to losing the keys and locations f the tunnels.

    Dead? Made 81, so might as well be, no longer able to cause a prisoner of war built prison to fly, so what use am I?

    As long as His Holiness is willing to bear the cost, will send the odd reply. Now having been up a half-hour, feeling tired so back to bed. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  6. “What use am I?”

    It’s a very good philosophical question, a point of departure I might take after I’ve answered other questions, such as “What shall I have for breakfast?”

    Nice to hear your voice, regardless.

  7. Am I the only person here that hasn’t been anonymised involuntarily?

    If so, what is my secret?

    All I know is that I am careful to type my pseudonym correctly.

  8. It doesn’t remember me anymore, Ace. Not unlike my wife.

    Oh no, I meant ‘acknowledge’ there.

    Particularly in public.

  9. Nxxx, you should know that we never refer to Gravesend at all. Certainly not in polite company (such as we clearly keep here). If absolutely necessary, the prefix ‘that utter shithole’ should always be applied . . .

    As I think I mentioned previously, there was a feeble move to rename it as ‘Gravesend Upon Thames’ a while back in an attempt to gentrify it. Until it was noticed that this, rather appositely, spelled ‘GUT’.

  10. The tourist wonders… “Surely it can’t be as bad as all that.” “There must be something to redeem it.”

    What would be the one best thing about Gravesend?

  11. The exit?

    No, that’s unfair.

    The A2 is similarly manky.

    When touring Europe, even Henry James described us as ‘simply too much’. So even The Master gave us a kicking. And that was back when we were a tourist hot-spot for London day-trippers. Lordy.
