Personal Aire
This would be a pleasure to decipher.
In olden times on board man o' war sailing ships, cannon balls were stacked in pyramids. To prevent them rolling away a brass plate with holes was stacked with the balls. This was known as a monkey. With the differing co-efficient s of shrinking due to climatic variations, the brass was more prone to shrinkage than the cast iron balls. When this took place, the balls were likely to fall off the monkey.
Part 2
The region of South Wales around the Gower looks magnificent but in relation to the first paragraph, the sea which looks great, as does a Tiger, bites. Leaving me in some fear of the earlier issues encountered by our jolly jack tar.
I am sorry that I made an unnecessary connection to Cardiff (where I spent my honeymoon) if it caused offence.
