P.S. And If I maybe so bold as to forward you an amusing little antidote, (for the inclusion in the next Christmas edition) that was overheard recently?
There were two Retired Majors in their club reminiscing about their days in The Dark Continent, when suddenly one Maj. mentioned that their colleague "Sodgrass" Gardener, had stayed behind and was living with a Mountian Gorilla. "My God, that sounds rather queer", replied the 2nd Maj. Oh no! It's well above board, the Gorilla is a Lady. said the 1st.
