The Gang....

.... I walked home from the pub last night with a huge smile on my face... the wind had died down and the rain from earlier in the evening had stopped, so the mile or so back home went easily... there was hardly any traffic at half-past twelve, and the sidewalk glistened under the streetlamps... hell, Simon and Garfunkel would have probably been moved to write a song about it if they'd been staggering along beside me...

... but meeting up with that old crew of workmates is always a great pleasure... every year we get older and older.. but with them, it never shows... not really... the girls still have the same lovely smiles and the men still sport the mischievous, darting eyes of consummately good-natured scoundrels... one really couldn't ask for a better group to spend an evening with... plus they always end up buying me more drinks that I do for them... which, of course, is always nice....

... off-color jokes, and long, rambling stories were the theme for the night.... adding in lashings of Indian food and free-flowing booze... and the mixture just worked.... the only problem being that it was only one night... only a few hours for us to re-connect, rekindle old friendships, reminisce, and download the data of their lives over the past 18 months.... and as enjoyable as it was, you are always hard-pressed to do that in just a few hours...

.... what really needs to happen, actually, is a giant vacation - en mass - to the wild hinterlands of Tennessee where I live... I really, really need that crew from last night hanging out on my deck for a week or so...

Bullshit So Far

Great night, Wee Man!! The Corries DVD in should play across the big loch because it was recorded un-regioned in NTSC.
