Well the sand is soft, the court is relatively flat apart from that possum shaped lump at the far end, and we'll fix that as soon as Big Mick lands on it.......... anyone got a team lined up yet for the Mudcat Indoor Beach Volleyball Championships?????

I used to play volleyball all summer long. There was an older man who also was addicted. He'd start telling jokes right before the serve, and the opposite team would be laughing so hard they couldn't hit the ball, Of course, if someone got lucky and lobbed it back, his team were also paralyzed with paroxysms of laughter.

This thong thing could have the same effect.

Feels like you have a permanent wedgie........and doesn't a man my size look dumb as hell in it..........What????.......Yes, FAIR ONE I have been told I have nice buns before but I am used to them being under jeans......and by the way, mind if we jump in the smoothie pit....you know I have dreams of ........well the bounds of decency prevent me from going further...........One word out of you, 'Spaw, about this feckin' thong and you will come a helluva lot *%&^&$#^^%&&^* closer than you did earlier in the year......same for you Swanno and Fielding,......What????........Yeah, the election is tomorrow, the die is cast and we have a very good chance of winning the election. I thought I would stop for a jar or 12 of the vile black stuff, before turning in for the night. The unit is about a hundred folks or so in Coloma, Michigan. I will let you know...........Alright ladies, THE FAIR ONE and I are taking on all comers in thong volleyball. Big Mick's rules.........full contact. hahahahahahahahahaha

Kat, I"m thinking some more strawberries would enhance this color scheme, don't you think? The green is a bit, mmm, unhealthy looking on all this thong-bedecked flesh...

Hey, the Tavern's back! I didn't feel too comfortable in the Pub--thought I should be British or something. I really shouldn't be here. I still have too much work to do before school starts on Tuesday, but I heard Doug calling from a distance & had to answer. Black & Tan, was it, my dear? For you, anytime, anywhere. The way I'm feeling, maybe I'll just join you for a sip. Ah, good to sit down! BTW, I don't *do* thongs. I'd be more comfortable in the all-together than partly clothed, thank you very much! Each to his/her own. Any music in here?

All this talk about them t'ong t'ings and learning how to avoid wedgies in childhood reminds me of the story of the of the young lad in church. He happened to be seated behind a rather large woman who had a problem with her skirt getting all caught up in her ample posterior cleavege. Being a perfect gentleman, the wee lad reached forward and gave her hemline a wee tug to free the skirt from its place of bondage. The lady, misinterpreting the lad's action, whirled around (amazingly deftly considering the tonnage in motion) and slapped the dear boy on his rosy little cheek. The lad was understandabley crest-fallen at such a savage response to his entirely well-intended good deed. Not wishing to think poorly of the woman, the lad reasoned that her response indicated that she preferred to have her dress pressed within her ample folds. Thus, determined to do his good deed for the day, he promptly clutched the offending fabric and returned it to its former position. Being a bright lad, he ducked before that great mass could once again be set in motion. The woman, having no cheek to stop her slap, spun round, lost her balance and fell into the gentleman next to her, setting off a spectacular domino effect, etc.

A small thought Katlaughing, "Those who can keep their heads while all those around them are loseing theirs, do not understand the seriousness of the situation!

Who insisted on these thongs? I mean, if there must be a dress code please could we make it something that dosn't cut the larger among us nearly in half? also can anyone explain why, when it comes to ladies swimware and underware, the less fabric they contain - the more money they cost?

Well if I can make it to the Bar I will take a large rum please, now about this smoothie pool and all these scantily clad and naked women...........

It's been a quiet day at Lake... er... I ,ean at the Neil Young Center but the Doctor says calling myself "zimmer" might offend anyone who is paramulatory-challenged. I think when I come back from my 2-week therapy in Greece I may metamorphose into "the skiffler",unless too much 3-star makes me legless.
I'm sorry I 'm not wearing a thong. I tried it once and I got this rash. I stopped wearing them but the rash persisted. My doctor said:
"Though the thong has ended the malady lingers on".

What a group. Once upon a time, I tried to maintain some semblance of order around here. Looks like past tense now. Just a few comments (& a glass of water for kat)--Jeri, to keep things friendly as home, I need to say that, though David may snap the photos, he has *not* been the one to distribute them. All the guilt for that rests on me. Forgive me, if you can, for your new nickname, & catspaw, Shame on you! Haven't you ever heard of things being done in confidence? No, I didn't think so. That's it--no more photos sent to you on the sly! Everybody else, however, just send me your email address & $5--whoa, what am I thinking!!!!! Forget that! Back to schoolwork. Maybe I can stop in later.

You guys are so bad! I go away for half the day (working my rear off!) & when I come back, you're still at it. Oh, well, drinks all around. I'll have white wine w/ an iced tea chaser (It's pretty warm in NY again)& join you. Doug, as you probably noticed, the thongs are optional, whichever direction you choose to understand that in. They flatter few, methinks. This trip to school, I dragged my younger son. We had a very productive time & now, I think I can almost face starting back on Tuesday. All I have to do over the long weekend is plan my entire year's program & figure out the lessons for the 1st couple of weeks. Piece of cake!

You guys cut that out fer a minute, wilya?? Let's have a song for the auld horse. That is so sad; I hate it when a pet/member dies. I've got an auld lady cat...she was 17 in June, who just keeps hanging on but I know one of these days....ah, hell, I need to drown my sorrow, somebody mix me up something STRONG, pulleezze. Sorry about the horse; that really hits home as my daughter's auld mare, who is something like 37, is having a rough go of it right now, too.

Wait, don't leave me here all alone! I know I am a wet blanket...just let me get a couple of these down and I'll, I'll.....breath catches in throat, small sob escapes, true banshee wailing ensues ....just let me sit over here in the corner, mayhap the resident barcat could come sit on m'lap, purr a bit o'love fer me?

How about a little kitten instead Kat? I agree we can sing one for Mario, but as I'm sitting here, Michael is STILL up (Daddy's boy alright) and holding a 3 day old kitten.....looks like your Trys, my Scrounger...and indeed Scrounger is the "Daddy" and Pooge (Mom), a calico is in 7th heaven. She's the best "Mommycat" I've ever seen. Only has one kitten at a time .. kinda' odd...and she is just fantastic. His eyes are still closed and he is a quiet and cuddly type little guy. Very trusting, very calm and you can tell already he's gonna' be a lap type. So just "see" Mikey holding this new little fella' and reach through the computer screen and let those tiny little claws tickle your hand. I'll put him back with Pooge when you're both done. My Tris is under the weather and I'm going to go check on he and Karen...maybe stretch out a bit with the two of them; it's been a long day. Mikey will come get me when you're done.

I see there's still smoothie tracks on the floor... whose theime thong is that? Anyone seen crooner? I promised to set him up for a drink, so give him a pint of the vile black stuff, and see if it's to his liking.

Glad to see things finally calmed down in here over the weekend. Was that what they call Thong Thircle Etiquette?
We were musing in the Neil Young Center over the weekend (OK, I was musing) about the absurd narrow categories the young give to their music: "handbag", "Garage", "house". How to categorise my music? "Briefcase garden shed" perhaps.
The rest of the ward said they thought I sang protest songs: I sang, they protested!
The regulars have used up all my possible thong puns, I must be slipping (it's the smoothie on the floor!).
So I'll just sit here, sipping a Metaxas till the fun starts again.BTW, SheWMBO says we must lose weight when we get back from holiday. She suggests it is the drinks & crisps before dinner during the week that is the problem.
Shame, but we'll just have to give up the crisps (potato chips I believe you colonial chappies call them).

Apologies to Robert Service. Anyone want to play?
-----------------

A bunch of the folks were whooping it up
In the old Mudcat saloon;
The fella that handles the coffee machine
Was plunking a banjo tune;
In front of the bar in a battle of wits
Sat Catspaw 49,
And listening to him, the Mudcatters all
Hung on every line.

When out of the night, which was muggy and warm,
And into the din and the glare,
There stumbled Big Mick, all sweaty and slick,
In a thong, and hung like a bear.
He looked like a man with a wedgie from hell,
His face scrunched in discomfort profound,
Yet he threw a large wad of cash on the bar,
And he called for drinks all 'round.
There was none could believe the size we perceived,
And of falsehood we looked for a sign;
But we drank his health, and the last to drink
Was Catspaw49.

There's men that somehow just grip your eyes,
And Big ol' Mick was one
And such was he, and he looked to me
Like a Mick who was on the run
With a furtive glance and Lycra pants
Or the pouch that for them stood
He mumbled a phrase that left them amazed
Saying "Koko's back in the 'hood"
I thought of tubers and volleys and jello
And Velcro and clamshell bras
I turned my head and watching him there
Was Alison, fair one, from Oz.

As she gazed around you could not hear a sound
But the dropping of possum turds
And she gave Big Mick a technicolor smile
and greeted him with sultry words;
She kissed him long, this hairy Mick in his thong --
He nearly dropped to his knees--
And sliding a hand to the front of his pants
She gave the goods a squeeze
"You're glad to see me I can tell, your favorite nel,
I've an unrefusable offer to make"
Heat rose in waves as Mighty Mick became inflamed,
And the potato, it was baked!

God! don't we have anything better to do with our time?

A real Robert Service poem would have at least 16 lines of build up before the kiss, and another of the same before the Irish potato got cooked... and much more atmosphere.
Actually, it still needs a confrontation between 'sPaw and Big Mick...which is where Jeri's intro leads...

Yep, we lost this one. The laws in the United States are so weighted against the workers right to organize that it is very hard to win the first time out. You only have about a 30% chance of winning. This is because they can use paid union busters, captive audience meetings and don't have to provide you a list of employees until two weeks out from the election. So you are left with trying to surmise who works there, then figuring out first and last name, then deducing where they live, etc. But we have a solid core of supporters and I prepared them to be ready to have to do this several times. By the third attempt you have a pretty good shot, but I believe we will get this one on the second go round. The employer made too many promises that they will not keep. Never do.

Beebs, get the house a round, and join me in a toast to those that perservere. Good folks, solid committee with the courage of their convictions. Slainte.

Well, by the time I get back from Greece, the old tavern will probably have moved a couple of times so I'll have to get the staff at the NY Center to redirect me, perhaps it'll turn into a taverna.
Last chance for a virtual Metaxas, this time tomorrow, earthquakes and flight delays permitting, I'll be trying the real thing. [In Ormos Marathakambos on Samos if you want to avoid it!]
After a fortnight in Greece, I come back speaking Greek like a native (a native of Birmingham, unfortunately).
If you are going to have a swamp I better remind myself to wear my Wellington boots (you call them "rubbers" in Uncle Sam's fair land, don't you? Strange, what we call rubbers in the old country wouldn't go over my feet, even if sensitile lubricated).
It'll be nearer three weeks before I drop in again, allowing for catching up at work. I'll have dropped the "zimmer" alias and try to think up something more appropriate.
I'm taking a collected Carl Hiassen (3 novels) to read, a pity PeteT & LEJ & co haven't published their private eye epic, it's shaping to be even better!
