Bill's Away

Once again, I find myself on my travels, compiling my guide to the Wetherspoon's of England.

I do hope to resume normal service shortly.

It's a wonder you can compile anything after one of your infamous torus, Bill.

Have fun!

I hope your Wetherspoon directory is reflected on here Bill... it is a great help to us all who travel and surf for wherever the best places are to 'hook up' to continue our virtual lives :-)

John C said...

Interpol's really contacted him in reference to social engineering training of their agents abroad.

I know this because they refused to tell me.

I hope you've taken a stout stick Mr Blunt. Useful on many occasions

archie said...

I believe the truth is that he is beating a rather ignominious retreat from the Hart-Caunts. (That is an unfortunate typo. The correct spelling is Hart-Cauntsincestershire - pronounced, in the grand English tradition, "Cornts")

I've read it, I've fuelled it and now I'm weeping.... hurry back

Bill Blunt said...

julian - thank you. I am in a place so steeped in history that you would doubtless stain your rather frayed trousers in anticipation of the wonders I will be able to reveal shortly.

anonymous - Now, there's a thought!

john c - Bill BLunt is not so easily bought, as you well know!

daddy papersurfer - Good advice, but entirely uneccessary on this occasion, as Mrs Blunt is safe at home

archie - You're a brave man, today, accusing old Bill of retreat in the face of the Hard-Caunts. I'm not a man to run away from a fight, I can tell you. Unless there are solicitors involved, of course.

nursemyra - thank you. Your Fuel is always of the highest calibre.

Lisa said...

Oh - please go and make yourself known to one of the assistant managers at W in Skipton - adorable child - but I would say that wouldn't I!

Bill Blunt said...

Well, lisa, I have already decided that an alphabetic approach will be too challenging, so it may not be long before I chance towards the Skipton direction...

Your public love you Bill ... stop popping off on your road trips. I am sure Mrs B must be feeling the brunt too of your disappeances, missing her familiar trips to the hypermarket and occassional days out in public.
I hope she has not experienced too many 'Witheringspoons' with you after such a long marriage?

Bill Blunt said...

Loathe though I am to admit it, anonymous, but I rather fear that Mrs Blunt has come to quite enjoy our enforced separations - almost as much, indeed, as I have.

"almost as much, indeed, as I have."

rewrite "almost as much, indeed, as have I."

Bill Blunt said...

Quite why you should enjoy our separation, Mr Sub-Editor, I don't know... unless there's something which Mrs B is hiding from me. I suspect an ulterior motive behind your fine language!

Æasubeditor said...

No interest in Mrs Blunt, other than avuncular. Rather the comment was more a piece of professional pedantry.

Bill Blunt said...

I have the scalps of quite a few sub-editors hanging above the desk in my study, I can tell you, Mr Sub Editor. I've crossed swords with the best and the worst of pedants, in my time - both professional and amateur.

Bring it on!

As for your professed avuncular love of my good wife, you need to know that she is a woman of needs. As I will be making frequent trips away over the months ahead, surely you can spare a moment or two to help met these?
