Heute gehort uns Deutschland, morgen die ganz
I have for some time been much gruntled at the thought of a weekend in the custody of the Tolleymore folk, there to be subjected to Mountain Ways, map learnin', book readin' , mindin' your rear end, and all that good stuff. Negotiations with my Senior Partner have concluded and a Temporary Release form has issued. A modest budget has been allocated. A headlamp and small First Aid kit will be commandeered to complete my baggage. The stage is set. But there are clouds...Knowing little about N. Ireland folk "in the flesh", I clicked on the Tolleymore website. The page I landed on :........ http://www.tollymoremc.com/ rings out the phrase: "Today Tolleymore...Tomorrow the World!" As I am currently re-reading my History of Germany from The Machtergreifung to 1939 I am rather conscious of the (unintended) resonances ("Today Germany is ours:Tomorrow the World"). I cheer myself with thoughts of my sweet encounters with the Wee Binnian Folk, and, indeed, our dear Bleck is generally ...agreeable. Lately though, his Myles na gCopaleen syndrome has been in the ascendent , and his prose are Joycean. Not Lord Haw Haw Joycean - the other fellow, who wrote the dirty books about Dublin in the daze before Lep Dancing. Meanwhile, I really must stay out of these petty disagreements between you all. I will remain aloof...I call that my "Monroe Doctrine".
