Nice day for it - she's looking well. How was Field Marshal Ribochet?
Sorry I couldn't make it, busy time at work. However, as a consolation, Missus willk went for a run on the SIB tonight...

He had a smile on him from ear to ear all day.
We had to peel him off the back rail.

Er, no!

Do you wear one on the Ferry? Oh, sorry, I forgot - you never wear one, do you?

Even in the Republic of Ireland where wearing a lifejacket is compulsory on certain vessels, it would not be required on this one.

This, Buster, is a wee ship!
