Horrors! I knew it. Hull is doomed. I am going to advise anyone I know in Hull to move inland at once! Aunt Penelope has assured me that Twillingsgate is far enough inland that no tidal wave could possibly threaten us, so I am staying right here where it's safe.
I said, "But what about a tidal bore coming up the river?"
Uncle Winston said, "The only tidal bore we have to worry about around here is that prat, Bertie Matchless. I can deal with him."
That made us all laugh heartily! :->
