I've a feeling this place will move again soon. Wow, what a great job Max has done with the remodelling. LOve the waterfall. I see everyone else is complaining about the black stuff and Mick hasn't finished it all up yet so we've got nothing to deliver today. I hope your next location is on my delivery route.
Well just a small one, I'll try not to spill anything on the floor.

Now DougR, you are going to have to help with this "listen" thing. It is a concept that I am not familiar with. I faintly recall Sister Primitive (no shit, real name) back in school trying to explain this to me as she was simultaneously teaching me about rhythm and time signatures with a wooden ruler by tapping the back of my knuckles. I learned the bit about time and rhythm but never quite got the bit about listening..........Is this a Zen concept???...New Age???.........Help me out here, DougR.........

It's actually sarsparilla. The drink is flavored with the roots (see root beer) of an evergreen climbing shrub. Some of you root fanatics might like trying growing your own. A perfect drink for kicking back and listening to roots music while watching Roots.

Never had a sasperilla? Sorta root-beerish, with overtones of Doctor Pepper or birch beer. sorta. well, kinda. It's one of those tastes that you can never really compare with anythin' cuz it tastes different but the same, only not really.

Clear as Guiness jello, right?

Sorry, folks. Had a technical problem last night & got behind on my drink orders. Wow! I'm glad I missed helping the cleaning crew. This place sure looks a lot better! This time, let's keep the jello in the jello pit!!! Guiness, anyone? Ah, Doug, you spoke w/ Mick for yourself. Yes, he's been trying to lose Koko. Can't wait to hear how Rick's doing! I don't think Heather will approve of a girl-rilla in the house! MAG, I think we drove the cockroaches out, thanks to catspaw's soap & Roger's latest jello shipment. Here's to your dad; more power to him! And catspaw, don't mind what Lonesome says, I've got some cashews in the back. Comin' right up! Only one drink, though, for you & then you're back to Coke. Somebody's gotta keep an eye on you! Whew! Think I'd better sit down for a minute!

What a night, cleaning all that solid jello out of the tanker, here's today's supply of Guiness flavour as Mick requested. Sure looks clean in here, that Dr Bronner's did the trick, eh? Well, thanks, I'll have a small one before I get back on the road. Gotta deliver some sasparilla flavour to the Salvation Army later.

NOT cockroaches. I took two years off my life spraying my stuff with industrial strength moving from one dive to a cockroach free apartment in Chicago, and they still give me the heebie jeebies. You haven't LIVED until angry bugs come flying out of your iron or your coffee grinder.

Then I moved to Florida (bad idea) and met the 3 inch flying kind.

I say, burn this sucker down and build another one.

Now, THERE's a campfire ...

"Why has the tiple player been staring at that can of frozen orange juice for so long?"
"It says concentrate on the label."
"Why do his shoes have TGIF on them?"
"It means Toes Go In First."

Howsabout another Banana Daquiri while we work this one out. On the house. Hey, where you going? No, I meant it's a free drink, not literally ON the House! Ma'am that drain pipe's not going to hold you! Oh, Jeez... UNGOWA KOKO! UNGOWA!

Anyway, get some more Sominex into Neil Lowe, he's still jabbering about Clear Light and telling me "Hey, LEJ! You're off the freakin' bus!!"

What's this contraption on the bar? I don't know, I bought it from one of Peter T's pals, said he'd let me have it for a song. So I did MacArthur Park and he ran out of here covering his head about the time I hit the second "Oh Nooooo". He says it's a SAD-O-METRIC Exerciser and whoa! WATCH OUT FOR THAT BUTTON...DON'T..

" The old hometown looks the same

There's a BIG woman at the door, says she came for the banana jello and YOU. At least I think that's what she's saying, my sign language is not that good. Anyhow, looks like wants the best three falls out of four, she gets to keep you and the bananas if she wins. She's playing a Uni-Royal like a concertina, got feet like hands, says her name's Koko and you her man.

If you go down to the woods today you're sure of a big surprise, If you go down to the woods today you'll never believe your eyes, For every bear that ever ther was, is gathered there for certain because, today's the day the teddy bears have their Rave Up.

No I'll quit there and have another drink; talking of woods if there is any woods rum behind that bar I'll take a small one please, and maybe a packet of cheese and onion crisps (potato chips if you like), and a couple of pickled eggs to go with that, just open the pack and drop the eggs on top, that'll do nicely.

s'pose I ought to have another attempt at this bodran, just what is the right tension? How do you know when you have it right? it's all very nice having somple instructions that a five year old can understand, but then at 35 i've got no chance!

right just another half hour then I better go and plumb in the new washing machine so I can wash the kids clothes tonight,dont you just hate it when appliances blow up mid task? 'nother choccy any one?

Small, concerned figure enters, wearing large raincoat covering bulky object. Moves past jello pit, Guiness tank, World Wrestling Federation cappuccino dispenser, towards the dark part of the bar. Sits down, watches mayhem in the distance, sighs. Digs into pocket, pulls out pencil. Writes on cocktail napkin 3 times in block letters: Yearn While You Earn?
Takes off raincoat revealing SAD-O-METRIC EXERCISER. Places Exerciser on table, pulls out wrench and hammer. Goes to work. 5 minutes later, smiles. "That should do it!" Looks around, Saturday crowd. "Let's try a 6.5." Adjusts dial, presses button. Machine whirrs into action. Drawer opens, picture of Eddy Arnold appears. Music begins:

"You give your hand to me and then you say hello
and I can hardly speak
My heart is beating so
And anyone could tell
you think you know me well
but you don't know me."

Outside passersby begin to glance at their wrists. Business men strolling over suspension bridges eye the distance to the water. A partial eclipse of the sun begins.

"No you don't know the one who dreams of you at night
And longs to kiss your lips and longs to hold you tight
I'm just a friend that's all I've ever been
But you don't know me."

In small apartments, women turn their mirrors to the wall. Traffic slows to accommodate non-existent funerals. In the tavern, the SADOMETRIC machine begins to whimper. The small, concerned figure says: "Let's try 7." and turns dial. Picture of Eddy Arnold replaced by picture of Emmy Lou Harris. Voice shifts into aching, exquisite stratospheric grief.

"For I never knew the art of making love
Though my heart aches with love for you
Afraid and shy, I let my chance go by
The chance that you might love me too."

The sun is completely dark. Birds trail tears as they fly. The arms of chairs wrap around themselves in pain. Drinks order other drinks to try and forget. The SAD-O-METRIC exerciser shudders in heart-rending grief, but continues:

"You give your hand to me and then you say goodbye
I watch you walk away and in my heart I cry
You'll never never know the one who loves you so cause you don't know me."

Hushed global weeping. Unbroken silence. Broken silence. Moment of embarrassment. Furniture pulls itself together again. Jello reconstitutes itself. Splashing begins again in various jacuzzis. Small concerned figure smiles to self, puts machine back under raincoat.

"Oh, Miss bbc, ma'am, could I have a soda water, please?"

It's hot here. I'm having a bellini, a lady-like little drinkie, I'll admit. Mmmm. Champagne and peach nectar all whirred up with ice like a big ol' slushy. Not my usual "belly-up" fare, but I've had a hard day and I'd like something refreshing before I go over and watch Big Mick warm up for his grudge match with Fair Alison. Did I hear this correctly? They're wrassling this time in beef consomme with just a whisper of fin herbes?

Consomme-ing their relationship, are they?

Well, I *have* been doing some spitting & polishing at home tonight, but I stopped in to pass out a drink or two. Let's see, Lonesome, did you get that round out to everybody, that Mick's covering? Whiskey for himself, a draft for Susan. kat, was that chocolate shake for drinking or sitting in? Hard to keep things straight in here, lately. Cooling off sure would feel good, though! Remember, Leej, I have to have the day off tomorrow. Big doings at home! Tell you all about it after! 'Night all!
