'fogey by spells' - at my age I know the feeling because I feel 'fogey by spells' too. Even if you spell it correctly, I also feel foggy by spells too ;) :D :D

Storis, 20 November 1952:

At 02:50, it says "Secured search for distressed vessel. Located and safe", but the second sentence really looks like "Loooted and safe"!
