    But the beer bottle was a full one,
    and someone had it! Was it you, no?

    I spent a long ago a christmas onboard a steamer, in Edinburg, It was a very high tide and I handled the ropes. I was the only watchman but not alone at all. The tide was with me!

    Between Swedish and Scottish is sometimes some similarity; as here 'tuin' = tom in Swedish. (Pronounced 'tum'.)

    a Merry Christmas for you, John. I like your haikus!

    Nice multi-way ambiguity here.
