Never heard that expression before. Perfectly explains it!

Thanks, Todd

it's a sort of Luxembourgish expression and I simply translated it into English :mrgreen:
everybody seems to be a moneyhunter in the comedy. :lol: Alan, you manage to make Symperson very shifty. And I was hoping for more bird-species to be mentioned but maybe the author didn't know any more. :mrgreen: Excellent and PL ok again, thanks

Symperson act 3

I love the speech where he complains to Cheviot about his changing his mind about committing suicide :twisted: :lol:

indeed, quite unfeeling of him :evil: and then complaining that his daughter is only going for the money, well...seems she is a chip off the old block :lol:

excellent play, Alan ! Loved it. So looking forward to hearing this all in context (and finally finding out who is marrying who in the end) :mrgreen:

PL ok, thank you

I would be happy to claim Cheviot. :)
"After the dazzle of day is gone,
Only the dark, dark night shows to my eyes the stars;
After the clangor of organ majestic, or chorus, or perfect band,
Silent, athwart my soul, moves the symphony true."
Walt Whitman
