Crabbitat… Put the kettle on and enjoy

4 Jan

It has been a frustration of mine that experience of the talents of a very good friend of mine, Crabby, have been limited to but a few souls, of which I have had the priviledge to be one.  His deep thought, thorough arguments and ability to pose provoking quesitons are married well with his ability to churn out prose on an industrial scale whilst retaining a turn of phrase and passion that keeps one engaged.

After creating this blog, I suggested to Crabby that he should do the same. Following some initial resistance and just four days later, Crabbitat was born. Oh and boy have  I been proved right! What an interesting blog that requires that you spend time to absorb and consider the articles within, and it has already amassed a number of articles to consider.

Having received many such articles from him over the years, I usually make a cup of tea and settle down to read, always with the intention to respond, but often finding that simply the response required needs too much of my time to give it the justice it deserves. It is a real art to be able to produce substantial writing upon demand – one that is beyond this author’s ability.

So, put the kettle on and head over there, you won’t regret it.

    Hi Jack,

    Thank you for the kind words and the chance to respond to your Blog.

    One thing I know from our years of discourse is that you do not require an epistle, as I do, to get a point across and can send my certainties reeling for cover with a few, well chosen utterances of your own.

    I also know that our discussions can extend into days, squirmishing over the interpretation of this point or that.

    One of my frustrations has been the lack of a moderating and radical voice such as yours to bounce off. Both, once you get the opportunity on Mr. Frost and in commenting upon Crabbitat.

    I look forward to returning the favour you have done me in the above post and look forward too, to your comments, which are always punchy and which offer, without fail, food for thought.
