Sorry Jim. In Ireland, if you want to do it right, you open letters with A Chara and close them with Is Mise, or some similar phrase. I'd have thought that since you live in that fair land, you would have realised the same, but obviously not.
Still and all, if you can't get the hang of possessive pronouns, writing a grammatically correct letter is going to be way beyond your limited literary skills.
Would I consider myself a friend of yours ? Never in a million years, and certainly not after all the genuine friends of mine you've insulted.
Will there be a next time ? Well, you never would let anything drop. Remember the night after The Crucible had been on tv, when you told Singers Workshop that you'd seen Martin Carthy with the devil ? Who else did you see with the devil ? The High Level Wankers, as you used to call them, The Waterworks, Nic Jones, Bert Lloyd (sorry he's been reinstated), and about 95% of the British folk song revival. It must have been quite a party.
Do you know what ? I do believe I've seen Jimmy Carroll with the devil, and I'd be hard put to decide which of them had the cloven hoof.
Thanks for the sport.
Till the next time - and I'm sure there will be a next time, what with a couple of fine macho-men like yourselves.
I reckon I let you off very lightly - this time.
A chara (whoops, sorry Fred, I forgot - you don't, do you?)
