Rampart rambling and Hikkaduwa hiking – SL#16.

Roll up, roll up ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls (although I hope no children are subjected to this) and prepare yourselves for another great two for one offer brought to you exclusively by fergysrambles.org. I am your friendly global purveyor of world-class nonsense by appontment to nobody except the haematologist, the hepatologist, the opthalmic surgeon etc. Sorry, wait a moment, that is having appointments with, not by appointment to, I got confused.

I shall now pre-empt the next two questions of my long-suffering regulars, the answers to which are no and now. The questions obviously were, “Is he drunk or stoned” and “When is he going to drive us mad with that ‘go back to the start’ link”?

I love Q words and quotidian and quondam have both got to be up there but there are plenty of others.

I should tell you at the outset that you are in for a treat, well hopefully anyway. Yet again you are going to have one of Fergy’s “two for one” deals as it appears that very little happened on the first day except for a very fine meal. Please read on.
