A Tam Good Show
Imagine for a minute that you are a hedgehog. Shouldn't be hard for some on this website - covered in fleas and spiky as Mickey Finn.
A hedgehog. The last throes of winter. Snugly. Bugly. Rugly.
But there is a noise: ' way back in your head. Chirping, snuffling, beast on beast romancing. Spring. It is the infernal noise of Spring!
All you want is peace n' quiet .... and this effing din. Bang bang bang. Clatter clatter clatter. Yak yak yak.

I was planting out winter vegetables. A gentle, unfussy day .... and on my periferal vision - gratis years with the firm - the Lidl raybands, microphone up the trouser leg, limbs akimbo against the sun.
Agent Winkler.
"Cra, we have one last job for you."
"FFS Winkler ...... !"
... he handed me the envelope. I glanced at it and he was gone.
"Oh Cock," I thought, wishing I was up in the Western Mournes.

Opened envelope. Paperwork and paperwork. Letters, emails, complaints; complaint about complaints.
That really annoying noise again.
Bang bang bang. Clatter clatter clatter. Yak yak yak.
... and a name. tamjk.

Tamjk. I have sifted (fairly lazily) through your missives to the firm and although you are as noisy as a fkd diff on a Morris Minor ...., I find nothing in anything you propose, nothing in anything you ask for, nothing in anything you observe and nothing in anything you complain about ....... to take issue with.
Incidentally if I don't understand anything, who cares? That you have bothered to flag it up and defend it, is more than good enough for me.

Here's some advice. Whatever you say to the firm, they don't hear it.
They don't hear it for 3 reasons. Firstly, anything controversial, they get a nose bleed and will ignore it; second it is called mountainviews but is nothing of the sort and is about mountain height and widths - for people interested in that kind of thing; and lastly whatever your opinion on anything is, it will never be as valuable as theirs. Why? Because they are the biggest database on stuff mountains in Ireland.

You have rattled Peter Walker for whom I have unqualified regard, Conor74 who is top of my misanthropy heroes list, wicklore whose rewards on this site don't come close to the effort he puts in - and I apologise to anyone else I have missed out whom you have pissed off ..........

..... but the Devil take them.

PS you will never get anywhere with kernowclimber and mcrtchly, They are in lurv and don't make any sense.

Keep it up. Don't expect any results - other than a great show, for me and for a huge silent but very smart majority.

Well done.
