      OFP Note to the politically-correct, (an oxymoron if there ever was one); it was the the gay landlord who chose to use the term 'queer' in the telling of his jokes.. He claimed it is no longer derogatory although I am sure the perpetually insulted may disagree. I asked him and he confirmed that 'Bender' and 'Ass-bandit' remain on the derogatory list though. Difficult to keep current on these things...

    Blog me Paris in the morning. Miss that. Did a snowy stagger across pint nuef one midnight to have a coffee and cognac in a wee cafe 30 years ago on leave. One of my best simple memories. Love Paris.

    OFP ... the great moral dilemma... We are dining in Saigon Kong's Vietnamese pizzaria and having the set menu "Food to Thai For"... The mixed starter for four is here and she has gone outside to phone her disabled dad... Do I set aside a spring roll for her?

    I go through the Gare du Nord two or three times a week. Since your last blog, I now buy a cup of coffee and give it the the first homeless person I see (it never has time to get cold, unfortunately). Often they're French, and a brief exchange ensues. Thank you for making me a better person.

    Hello Mr Prop, I have a question if you have a quick minute. If someone joined the FFL and did their 5 years then decided to join the Commandos Marine, would they be able to bypass the Stage Commando due to the knowledge and skills they already have? Also would they maintain whatever rank they had reached in the FFL? Thank you for any help you can give me, Barb.

    Thanks, Prop. I must get back to Walter. He needs a great, big...edit.

    It was a treat to have two entries of yours in the comp. :-)

    Chillingly casual elimination, Prop. Nice touch of humour as usual. Enjoyed reading your comp entry.

    Thanks, Prop! I was imagining what was once on the wall rather than what's still behind it, but you've made me think now... :-)

    Read your new one. Great scene setting and LOL about the Russian quote! I was running with 'you'... Was cleverly lulled along ... sat up at the mention of pistol, and imagined Fallon's bodyguard or similar, until that killer last line!
