Well, Mr. Wine Buff. Something to go with the cheese fondue? The Lord preserve me from cheese fondue, for I have had it up to here. I reckon the appropriate comment as to what to drink with it is as per the old country fellow who is asked directions. "You wants go where? You doesn't wanna be startin' from 'ere, then."
Is it only the 'frugal bunch' who want to know 'the price of the tipple up front'? If you are not in this position yourself, you are in a position to send me a large cheque. Euros would be as acceptable as GBP. Alternatively, monthly settlement of my a/c at The Wine Soc would be a fine thing, gratefully accepted. I must have your confirmation of this before I open an a/c, of course.
And to top it all off, you want someone to send you another copy free, 'p & p paid'!
As for your round the world trip, plain sailing to you and no 'radar assisted collisions', as we now have in this electronic age. But note: 'Canberra' used to carry 9 coffins on its R.T.W. trip. On 'Oriana' for the 3 weeks to the W.I. [working, I have to say] they needed 2. Steady with the Muller-Thurgau, whatever its vintage.
