    No, Dundas may have got more than one of Mr Murphy's watches going, but if Dundas didn't remember the large ornate JO inscribed on the back cover of the Maybrick watch, or the clear H 9/3 inside it [engraved after the Jack/Maybrick scratch marks], and then described another watch entirely when asked about it, I'd say he had no chance at all of identifying and remembering a few barely visible scratch marks as 'inscriptions', and was even less observant than someone whose chosen pseudonym is Observer.

      Eh? Because I pointed out that someone was very good at making JM's signature look like JM's signature?

      That's just a fact, Observer. It's not up for debate.

      Keep up.

      Love,

        Read postings from Ike? Are you serious?
        I meant the images Ike posted of Mike Barrett's handwritten work. None so blind, eh, Observer?

        I believe you'd look quite attractive in a darkened room
        I'll take that as a compliment. I'd like to look attractive anywhere these days.

        Love,

          I hope you’re not having lunch with Jane Mansfield. (See Derek and Clive)

          Hi Gary,

          Quite honestly, during lockdown, I've had to turn my hand to various jobs to keep the wolves from the door. If it wasn't for people with Jane's unfortunate condition, I probably wouldn't be having lunch at all today.

          Not moaning or anything. Just glad to still have a job. Lunch isn't quite what it was pre-lockdown, but I can't complain too much.

          PS For those currently eating lunch, my apologies for the gratuitous scatological allusions. If it makes you feel less queasy, I am of course making it up.

          Regards,

          Ike

            So are you suggesting that a forger was incapable of randomly guessing more or less precisely the Maybrick signature found in his marriage certificate, Caz?

              • On the subject of lunch, BBC News has an article today reporting that Greggs the Bakers have sales at about 72% of this time last year so they consider that a great success.

                From their perspective, yes, but - honestly - is that what we were all waiting patiently for in our locked-down homes for over three months? A sausage roll and a mince pie?

                Sad but true.

                Suddenly my own lunch habits seem quite virtuous ...

                  Erm, get pissed I think, Ven. How are you and your fellow antipodeans on the guzzling large quantities of beer game?

                      And yet it's what Mr Murphy is down on the record as saying.

                      What's pointless is you trying to erase that record without so much as a smidgen of jeweller's rouge. But do keep trying anyway.

                      Love,

                              Caz can bring the sprouts; Ike can bring the wit; and I’ll bring the blanket:

                              https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=_ZEEgIti8sM

                              Oh, and we may need a bit of humble pie - just in case.

                                Not at all, Ike. If Lord Orsam and his Siamese twin the Baron can argue with straight faces and twirling moustaches that Anne Graham could have multiple personality disorder, to explain why the diary handwriting looks no more like hers than it does JM's, then I think I'm entitled to argue that Robbie Johnson may have had the gift of 'tuning in' to the deceased, to discern how Jim formed his signature on the marriage licence - also known as a marriage allegation I believe, for those who needed to get hitched in a hurry and avoid all the faff. Didn't young Bobo arrive eight months later? The certificate would presumably have come after the ceremony, when the newlyweds were about to tuck into their wedding breakies of LOBSTER and bubbly. I can hear Robbie now, with his Cherry Ripe from Night of the Demon, as he prepares to let Sir Jim take over control of his etching tool.

                                The irony is never far from the surface, is it? Everyone [including me] pooh-poohed Anna Koren's analysis that the diary author had the same mulitiple personality disorder which Anne Graham is now alleged to suffer from.

                                Is it a mere coincidence that the same people who have fallen hook, line and sinker for Bongo Barrett's nonsense are also likely to fall hook, line and sinker for LOBSTER?

                                Love,
