Other way around, I think you'll find! They'll get him in a pincer formation!
Nah he'd quaff ale, get hungry and have crab kebabs at "killer crab kebabs", (I'm fairly sure Swifty was the chef there at some point).

Under the floorboards, taking notes...
Cromer's goats are BACK nibbling away at the grass above our promenade .. I just hope they're getting enough water at the moment .. Goats On A Slope! .. you can even buy merchandise as well .. tea towels, mugs, fridge magnets etc ..

Their arrival is a omen that Satan will soon visit Cromer.
Extremely unlikely Ramon .. Cromer's a God enthusiast's town. The thunder and lightening storm was pretty impressive tonight though.
Neither Satan nor God will visit Cromer's Goats- the Goat Sucker and The Men Who Stare At Goats will be arriving shortly...

I love a good curry, with music to follow...
I was actually the manger of a successful curry house in Cromer. Other than successfully arguing a point that got us our 5 out of 5 rating from environmental health and hiring and training my mate's son who's now a restaurant supervisor somewhere else in Cromer .. and training staff in barista work? .......

... I wasn't very good at that particular job. I don't like curry and I struggled with using the tablet so my mate's son had to constantly rescue me. We laugh about it now though and it's a good feeling when he tells his staff 'swifty got me into this game' .. he's being over generous but bullshit is essential in hospitality.

Just reading Adventures In Cryptozoology by Richard Freeman; on page 127 there's a report of a Sea Serpent sighting off Cromer promenade on 19 July, 1912. 30 foot long undulating creature moving at 40 mph.
Just got to that bit myself. Cromer, there be monsters.
