BAG YOUR PACK
Wick, would you ever just stick to the prescription! From the alleged comfort of my own cell, the shared use of a satellite dish and at the whim of a warder’s TV remote control I can wonder at the wild beauty of the magnificent Bengal Tiger, the regal King Cobra, the noble Polar Bear, the vast Hippopotamus, the whatever Nile Crocodile and I could just hug the television, that is if the other inmates wouldn’t kick me to death – but (and I am obliged to repeat myself), BUT if the feckin’ things are in my back yard I want them shot. Completely shot – and deader than a dodo’s Grandpa. Whatshisname the American bloke who thinks he’s English. Come on. Thingamyjig. Bill Bryson in his fab book on the Appallachian (sp?) trail, recounts the hillwalker having the back of his head removed by a Drivvly Bear sent demented by the presence of a Chocolate Bar, so what chance would we have with the loopers, in the Reeks or the Wicklow Mountains or the Bluestacks or the Mournes carrying around a dead goat or a chicken or a caribou? Well? None I think. Anyway, If you want woofles, have woofles but don’t blame me if you get winged trying to get them off the boat. Anyway again, I have to go now. Give us an “L”, give us a “Y” … Pee Ess, one day if you want to pack a small bag and good running shoes, I shall take you to a hill in Scotland where there are wolfies. Circa 20 years ago in desperate Highland blizzards I watched the meeting of tracks – one early red deer and 3 wolfies and the ensuing carfuffle. This cannot be, I told myself, until I heard them shout across the glen. Possibly there are still mammoths north of the old USSR. They say. Pee also Ess, I come from a place where a man breeds dogs with foxes. The upshots sit in his land rover when he is in the pub. Apparently both are impossible.
