In the comments… I’m innocent, ‘they’ made me do it…

I think "Flush The Ptarmigan" has a better ring to it.

I’ts about the Ptarmigan getting away, not the act of flushing him, but seeing him after the flush ~ in flight…

This little number is a joing effort ~ by our aliases to protect the innocent, the others involved include ptarmigan and Dow…

With that in mind, Dow’s name preference, the more aggressive one, has been given as an alternate title… ;-)

Dang keyboard ~ what’s a ‘joing effort’?

You’re going to hate me for saying this, but I think it works better as a single jig than a slide.

I’m sure you picture me "after the flush ~ in flight…" But I suspect Dow pictures me spinning down the lavvy hole - anti-clockwise! :-)

It’s amazing though, to see one litte Kerry tune generate so much activity here. Proper order too, I say, as Kerry tunes deserve much more attention than they receive at present!

Thanks Ceolachan, although I suspect few here will wish to play it, when it has my moniker on it! :-)

P.S. Definitely sounds more like a Hop Jig to me! ;-)

For my sins I have the spirits of Dow and Ptarmigan to pester me with their ‘single jig’ and ‘hop jig’ slurs… :-/

"I’m innocent, ‘they’ made me do it…"

I’ve no idea. Who were they?

The usual criminals…
