Re: A Bit of Bush, Do I look, as though Im full?" (Bernard 41829)
- Hi Bernie my old mate.
Haven't heard from you awhile and thought you'd gone walkabout.
True to form I've got a bit of nit-picking with your latest.
last line: "Oh Blondie will get this man a Bundy OP etc"
I believe the word 'will' is redundant unless I'm reading it wrong.
Anyway good to see you up to your usual form.

- G'day Wings,
Spot on again, My Old China,
Crikey, I must have been full! I get into
strife like this because, for some reason
I abhor ragged line lengths...I do recall
shoving in the "Oh" but didn't notice I'd
somehow forgotten a "you" in the process.
Dropping the "will" is the obvious answer.
Cheers, Old Son,
