A normal Sunday lunch.......

Two of my best mates came in today, both motorbike mad, as I am. We put the highlights of yesterdays race in Qatar on, as they missed it live.

Enter Trigger. (I can hear the applause).

" I saw him racing yesterday".

Who?

"Number 52".

You did Trig, these are the highlights, we watched the race, remember?

"Yes, who won?"

My mates just looked in amazement.

Keith popped in for a pint, unusual for him on a Sunday. (No girlie drinks Wendz). It was good to see him. No doubt he`ll be in on Tuesday. Your shout matey!

Bloody hell - you lot spend your life down the pub.

I on the other hand, am surgically attached to my washing machine. No guesses as to where I'd rather be.

Wendz said...

Did Keith meet Trigger?

That was a classic...man that bloke gets worse by the day.

No Keith missed Trigger, luckily!

I went in the back door as Trigger went out the front door.

My God Wendz, but it's a rough old pub. There are a lot of dubious characters in there. Names like "Poacher" and "Bill Sykes". Sawdust (or muck) on the floor, spitoons, ugly looking dogs. Not the sort of place where you would take your old Gran.

Grumpy Keith

Oh, I forgot to mention the Bikers, the illicit vegetable sellers and the undercover police, sorry.

Ugly looking dogs? The barmaids will not like that sort of talk Keith!!

Wendz said...

Whose Bill Sykes and why is that name so rough?

Anyway - I get the general idea...I think I'll pass on the pub and meet you lot at a nice quiet tea shop instead....ha ha ha..as if!

I don`t know where Bill Sykes came from either. You`d love it in here on a Sunday lunch Wendz, my computer mate is back, so the home-made curries will be back on the bar.

Wendz said...

Computers and curry...and the connection is?

PI said...

John I do hope you aren't leading Keith astray. We older people are rather vulnerable . And I still think he should cycle to your pub.

Pat ~ You haven't been paying attention! Naughty! I did post on my page that my bike had been stolen, and I haven't got it back. Anyway, it's 7 (SEVEN) mile to t'pub, too far for my old legs to pedal.

Wendz ~ Bill Sykes was a rather shady character in "Oliver Twist" by Charley Dickens.

John ~ Sod off! It's YOUR round on Tuesday!

Sorry about using your comment column to answer my friends, I'll pay you when I see you (if you get lucky!).

Like Wendz I ahve more in common with my washing machine, my dishwasher and my hoover than our local pub. Sad women of forty something that we are................ (Actually Wendz is a bit younger than me, but I'm sure she'll allow me some poetic licence....)

john.g. said...

Wendz, the computer/curry connection is an old tradition here. Obe Wan, my guru has always brought a home-made dish, usually some locally shot game, which he makes a curry out of. This is put on the bar for anyone to try.

john.g. said...

Pat, ignore the grumpy old g*t.

Sally, get out more! LOL.

Mr Farty said...

What is it with women and washing machines? Oh, right, fast spin. Whatever floats your boat.

John, your last comment in L.R.B. was linked back to lifeinthepub.blogspot.com, which doesn't exist. You might want to update your electrosignature or whatever it's called. I'm just saying.

On the subject of existentialism, is Trigger real?

PI said...

Keith courtesy of John. I remembered about your bike being stolen but presumed (Or is it ass) you would have got off yours and done something about it. I know you are a good sensible boy about limits and things.

john.g. said...

Mr.Farty, yes he`s real!!
