It was RB leafing through the dictionary with cocoa in hand getting ''tongue tied'' trying to enunciate malapropism with a mouthful of said beverage ''pouring'' out over his dictionary.

It's usual to write people names with the use of a captal letter to start ken......

Hot Water and a bowl of gruel...Christ you ‘ad it easy RB. Try going a few days without food/heating in mid Winter then going to school on a 2mile walk through fog with visibility almost zero. Rationing was the name of the game in those days lad, and as for malapropism you know where you can put that!
