Once more into the Valley of Death

I have been putting it off for weeks.

There comes a time though when important things just have to be done, and that time has arrived.

Against all my better judgments and instincts I have to go into Skobieville for the afternoon.

Will I survive the trip into that underbelly of society?

Who knows?

The odds improved slightly since yesterday when I trimmed the old beard.  I now look like Harold Shipman again, which tends to deter the worst of the beggars and muggers.

Harold Shipman

If I don't ever return then, as Dave Allen used to say – may your gods go with you.

In the meantime, talk amongst yourselves.

  1. Good luck to ya with that particular expedition.I do see a small flaw in the idea that by posing as the great doctor,it will carry an implicit threat.Most of the idiots you are likely to meet haven't the the foggiest idea who the bould Harold was.It's a bit like having a nuclear missile and not telling anybody.

    • I'm sure his mug shot will have appeared on Facebook or Twitter in the past so most should be familiar as that is where most of the Skobieville residents probably view the world.

  2. No doubt the elders of said town will be giving someone a wide berth then……

    Dont get lifted by the Gardi, Gardy, Goody or what ever you call Plod over there.

    Good luck.

  3. If you take after Harold Shipman you must have a great bedside manner. All the auld wans are  waiting for your next visit.
