Pub news.

The mad Scotsman is continuing to torment me. His hand is still heavily bandaged, but he isn't looking for sympathy,as he knows none will be forthcoming!

I have decided to give him a nickname. From now on he shall be known as Rab.

Most of you will recognise this character from the 80's sitcom, Rab.C Nesbit. A hard drinking, heavy smoking Glaswegian reprobate.

Hello,Scotty! Welcome to your new moniker!

LOL! I remeber Mr C.Nesbitt...I still can't make a head or tail what he babbles about :)

I take it that you have no such trouble with your Rab ;)

The Holly Bush? A gathering of folk from unfortunate mysterious accidental circumstance, or ... WTF?!!!
This lunchtime (Monday 24 Oct) I frequented the Holly Bush pub in Ashby Parva for the usual 'half a lemonade', but was shocked by the dilapidated state of it's clientele! My fellow drinkers were:
a guy with his arm bandaged up, having undergone horrendous major surgery and skin grafts, lucky to be alive after a 4000 volt shock from a pylon;
a bloke with his foot bandaged up following titanium plate surgery after an accidental fall caused by an irresponsible brewery;
a woman on a motability scooter following botched hip replacement and spinal fusion;
a guy in wheelchair after a tree falling on his car...
I was surrounded by folk crippled by bad luck...
So imagine my dismay when driving home to my exclusive gated-community residence in upmarket Bruntingthorpe to discover that some irresponsible bastard had put a 200-year-old oak tree on the side of the road, right where I needed to swerve to avoid the hedgehog! (well I thought it was a hedgehog, but I was half-pissed at the time so could've been a leaf). Fortunately, both me and the hedgehog/leaf were fine, but be warned...

Hi, Vince. I see you've found me!

An accurate analogy.
