Books, Don and Wen

Dear Don: Continental Drift…

Dear… Donsta?

Okaaay… One wonders if you are quite well? The Black Beast points out that one could even read a note of affection into your comment about the Black Lake… and asks if you might be in need of medicinal chicken or remedial ball throwing?

Oddly, enough, I was just reading about An Linne Dhubh, the Black Pool, which is part of Loch Linnhe in Scotland. We drove along its banks on our last foray when we passed beneath Ben Nevis. Between Black Beasts, Black Lakes and the mysterious Black Shade, a Guardian might not be a bad idea.

Curiously, it has been suggested that the name of Ben Nevis was derived either from either the Gaelic for ‘malicious’ or ‘poison’… which is a black enough character to give a mountain… or to be a reference to Lugh, who would make a pretty good Guardian…

Speaking of which, I wonder if we have heard the last of Monsieur Montgomery? I can’t see him disappearing from the pages of history somehow… although, you have to wonder how many he’s had a hand in writing…

Mrs Meadbarrow’s ‘end’, though, made me laugh I must say. I just wish I had been a fly on what was left of the wall…

Poor Ben…

Your Chinese restaurant sounds a bit odd. An example of your ‘string theory’ at work, perhaps?

I wonder what would happen if you could ‘hop’ strings at will? Like jumping the radials on a spider’s web… And do they all lead to the same centre? Or do they have their own centres that become the point of origin for another string? We probably need to sit down with a bottle of mead and talk that one through…

And, if there were to be a microfiche, I’ll bet you that our Machiavellian friend would be involved at some level…

Anyway, ‘Old Snorty-Snout’ picked up on the sausage comment… so I have cooking to do…

See you soon,

Love,

Wen and the Wonder Dog. x

We'd love to hear from you...
