Of course we noticed you, David.
We also saw William stone Colin.
We witnessed Louise Yannaway cavorting with Les.
The jury's out regarding what Eddie was actually doing with Joan of Arc down by the dockyard wall.
We remain unconvinced that they were bidding farewell to Lynda on her way, over the deep-blue sea, to Philadelphia, while expressing sorrow.

Isn't this a good game?
Shall I continue?

Lumme! Paul's diction must be slipping - either that or David's hearing needs testing. Last time I heard it, it was "Mary SkeFFington".

Somebody got there before me...

Dogsbody, Scrivener and Wretch said...

Yes, I did!
I also filled in a couple of ?-s.
What Lynda sang as 'The Boatman & Me' was, in reality was 'Waters of Tyne'.
Didn't MWP notice?

Given that I was not present on that occasion, I was, understandably, blind to such modifications.
Perhaps DS&W would be so kind as to document his changes in 'comments', so that others might a) be alerted, and b) challenge his assumptions.
What else have you mucked about with, eh?

parkingspaceman said...

Looking again at the list, I see that Lynda is still noted as singing "The Boatman and Me". If DS&W has a way of detecting future changes, perhaps he would get in touch re next week's lottery numbers?

My atlas gives the place on the Isle of Muck as "Port Mor" (sic). Is this the 'bonny' place of Colin's song, or is that somewhere else?

Given that, (by his own admission,) he was not present, I challenge MwP's qualification to comment.

His inability to apologise for absence has been documented!

Responding to the later uninvited comment:
Portmore is/was a forest in Co. Antrim whose timber was extracted for military purposes.

Why am I telling you this?

parkingspaceman said...

DS&W has a capacity for 'missing the point' which is quite breath-taking.
1. This blog is in the public domain: therefore anyone (myself included) is "qualified to comment".
2. Ability (or otherwise) to apologise is irrelevant: there is no compunction on me to attend, therefore I do not need to apologise. (I think DS&W might have been taking lessons elsewhere).
3. The comment function is available to all: therefore comments are, by implication, invited.
4. DS&W is telling 'us', (whomever he thinks he is referring to), because he has little else to occupy his mind. He should take up embroidery, or meditation, or building models of Notre Dame from matchsticks - or something, for pity's sake.

I rather suspect that this near-incestuous 'point-scoring' between PSM,(AKA - MwP,) and DBS&W, is of minimal interest to others, even to the contestants!

End of ...

Could be a new spectator sport, of course. (It might be more interesting than the football, or tennis).
BTW, you seem very fond of the word 'incestuous' lately. Have you discussed this with your family?

Did no-one sing "The Eighteenth of June", or "The Plains of Waterloo"?

We should celebrate our victories, especially over the French.
