Very well-
And with great trepidation-

Dollis Hill

When the Radical factions were proposing the removal of Dollis Hill from the game back in 1967, Mrs Trellis was having none of it. "The London Underground," she stated "is not some mathematical abstraction with which intellectuals may fiddle in order that their Straddles are more enjoyable. It is a real map, and Dollis Hill is a real place on it. One may avoid it where possible, certainly, but one cannot do away with it. Those who seriously propose such nonsense should shape up and learn to play in the real world."

I wake up near an old fashioned British Police Call Box - stagger over to the station sign - scream "Oh! no - not again"-

I'm away for a weekend and nobody takes the plunge? Oh well. Since it's within 40 degrees of parameter boundaries, I can make a half strile to Chancery Lane.

Look old son, you forgot to invoke Australian rules first, a serious offence under section 412, paragraph 1080 of the 1913 rules,  so I have to take a quick spin back to the UK -

I thought we were still on Ruislip '76 rules, before the Heathrow loop had opened. On well.

You forgot to turn the page to read the rest of the rule, which disticly refers to leap years between 29 February and the openung ceremony for the Olympic Games.

But Hewitt's Prescription part IIa states that the application of Crabbit's Law of vectored access to low coordinates within the arc of Apperley is non-negotiable.

Egads, Henry, you've done it again.

A quick survey of the French Convention and Petit Dejeuner (they play a variation called Mornington Croissant)

That lets me do a Luxembourg Shift and open up three diagonals north of the river.

Well that's easy. I move Goldhawk Road, and now you'll have to perform a Freiberg's Shift] (free, but you could end up in tongs), or an ex-diagonal undercut, costing you two blue tokens, and freezing your reversals for the next move.

Sticky what?

Well Henry, we'll unmeringue that with a two shoe shuffle and rule review, and try for the triple sideways strike- on the Central Line -
