Thank you for your proposal of marriage. Sadly, I fear the distance between Lower Loch Lochy and Southend-on-Sea a little too far to bridge. However, I do occasionally visit the area to take my dear Uncle McCleaver for a stroll along the pier (always accompanied by his warden, of course). Next time I visit, I will do as you suggest and join you for a 69 – I think you meant to write 99, didn’t you, dear? You obviously know how partial I am to a bit of Mr Whippy.
See you soon, dear.
