Is that Mrs Parusski?
HA. Shows how much you know. That is a lady from Uttoxeter married to a certain gentleman who uses as his forum name a ship known as "The Grand Old Lady1" and who, in the name of peace, shall remain nameless, except in case of an emergency.
That was my Herman Melville impression.
Makes sense. A ship like that needs its Moby Dick. Restoring order too the universe.
Here is where I bow to you and admit I had NO intention of connecting any of this to Moby Dick. I owe you 11lbs of Peanut Brittle.
