Nope, I am not going there.
Sprinkle a little bat soup at the base of the trunk and retire as fast as your legs will carry you.
I have a great recipe for guano stew
..."Guano is the accumulated excrement of seabirds and bats. As a manure, guano is a highly effective fertilizer due to its exceptionally high content of nitrogen, phosphate, and potassium: key nutrients essential for plant growth."
Oh! and for the new C word.
That's my fun for the day, off to bed now.

Shifa and Anmolpreet, thank you both for your warm comments.
I have been taking a little time out researching some issues relating too this vey topic and some others things that seldom get a mention but deserve to be aired.
There is a saying that goes something like this...
"Fools step in where angels fear to tread"
The line is actually... "For fools rush in where angels fear to tread" It was first written by a 'POET'
By the name of Alexander Pope in his 1711 poem An Essay on Criticism.
I know there are a few who might be triggered by these words.
Please know that I accecpt this as a possibility and can be contacted in compleate confideance either here at WOL or via my private email at any time.
Thank you all for taking the time to read and comment.

A friend from pub-going days back in the 70s was the "pub pianist of the year" around that time - a virtuoso of the keyboard from Ipoh, Malaysia who knew another England perhaps but seemed happy
enough with his lot here in London, not always the easiest place to
adapt to from far flung places. But then adaptability is said to be the secret of success, wherever you go.

A great reminder of the importance of journey to pilgrimage. Nowadays people use horses or cars to speed up their progress but the real pleasure is always preserved for those who work to reach with their own determination.
