I'll try to get some captions done during the week. sorry, dylexic htlm timme again
I have had to retire home early after twisting my ankle at around 3pm today. I have been to casualty, and nothing is broken. It was diagnosed as ligament damage, and the doctor told me to continue doing what I have been doing since the fall (and I don't mean Autumn in America). I said "What! Limp???".
As for the beer, the "Mudcat DT's" has been absolutely excellent. Shortly before I left, Syd had to change the second barrel. We had supped two times 18 gallons, and there is only another 18 in two nine gallon barrels. It may last through part of the evening, but there will definitely not be any going to waste.
We were still hoping that somebody might turn up with a laptop computer which has a working microphone socket (unlike ours, where we can listen on paltalk, but not broadcast). Tyke may have brought one with him, but I was busy being strapped up when he arrived, so we hadn't had opportunity to ask him before I was transported home.
Jane has returned for the end of the ceilidh, so if she gets it sorted you will be informed on our other current thread YORKSHIRE GATHERING ONLINE. Our original plan was to finish the ceilidh at 10.00pm and get on paltalk at around 10.30pm (British Summer Time) about 5.30 ESB mudcat time. I will be watching out and hoping to be with them in spirit if no longer in person.

Just to start the introductions if I may, the person in the green polo neck jumper sitting opposite Micca, and with the long hair and big hooter is me!!! The bearded guy on the left of him in the hat is Badger, and the lass in the Mudcat shirt across from me and right of Micca is Tig. The lady in the yellow shirt sitting in the corner is Mrs. Duck. The tall lad by the bar dangling beer glasses is Sam Pirt, and that's Magician on his left.

Oh, and on the tables may be seen some of Val's excellent food. Behind the bar are Jason and the now very famous Syd.

Mudcat Gathering Photos

I would like to get a selection of photos from the weekend gathered together on a corner of my "Almost" web site, with suitable captions and names. Because of my abrupt departure, I do not have much other than FRIDAY EVENING. If you have taken any suitable snaps PLEASE send copies to me so I can compile an online record of the gathering. Also, any anecdotes from the weekend might be of interest. Post them elsewhere, by all mmeans, but please send me a copy also.

If we collect all the bits together, I'm sure the mice will fix it and put it in the shop window so that Micca can come along and find it again....

The poisoned pellet was in the vessel with the pestle
The chalice from the palace held the brew that was true

This is all a smokescreen - the tankard dissolved in consequence of having been filled with cider shandy once too often! (AND it was stainless steel, as I remember.)

Sorry about the foot, Geoff, but we all had a good trip, and didn't see why you should be left out, being local and all. Also sorry you had the wrong kind of trip, an understandable mistake, under the circumstances.

.......
"The Rules
clear as water
strong as air
Our guide.
Seek not justice
lest you get it
Seek not revenge
lest as its source
you receive it
for revenge is circular
returning whence it came
Personal gain
puts many things beyond reach
only the price remains hidden,
some stakes are too high,
all outcomes are not
understood or clear.
But
if you would catch
a knife in your teeth
your nerve must be good
and your eye steady"

After reading the thread from Liz the squeak could someone going to the Jug tomorrow send my apology to the Horse. I thought it was the Horse that was farting all night! So I picked up a tankard I found lying around the campsite and through it at him! Do you think it could have been…………….!!!! :-)

And I thought it was merely Eggborough power station's boilers venting! Living where I do, across the road from one pub, just over the river from the Jug, and down the road from the power station, one accepts deep rumblings and roarings as part of life's rich pattern.

The tankard will do nicely for a birthday present for Ian - if I can ever get the cider smell out of it. Would Domestos help? I could always use Jeyes fluid. (It works a treat on the yard where the dogs "go"!)

A funny thing happened last night. I was just dropping off to sleep and I heard this ethereal music, all harps and sopranos, and there was this sweet perfumey small, and then something slowly materialised in front of me, something that floated in mid-air on a golden tray. I couldn't exactly make out what it was, because it was covered over by a finely embroidered damask cloth, but I would estimate that it was about five or six inches high, maybe four across, and probably made from some costly silvery metal. Do you think...?

Why all the mystery about micca (aka pining)'s tankard. Any self-respecting tankard would obviously wish to stay in the North where it can fulfil its mission of being filled with quality beverages. Why would it want to journey back to London?

If you give your tankard freedom it might stay a while...

Well me, and sam and the stephensons have just returned from an absoloutly amazing festival - the Hexham gathering. It was all young professional musicans and school celidh bands and young musicians in general bar windy b 99 and Mrs windy b 99!! Me, Sam, and a couples of other musicians I agreed to give lifts home to set off at 3 and somehow we didn't reach Sams house till about 7!! That must be a world record for the longest length of time it has ever taken anyone to drive back from Hexham!! I got home at 8, and went to the pub!! Hehehehehehehehe. My parents are away till friday so I can play on mudcat till my hearts content. Whooohoooo!!!!

How was Syd's Beer Festival??????? Unfortunately I wasn't there, but I was still very drunk this weekend!!!!

Any chance of the lyrics this would make one young (ish) lady extremely happy and gain yours truly muchas brownie points. We call in the Jug most nights for drink. I think Jezebel may already have this request in hand but if anybody could e them to me at lowerydavid@hotmail.com I would be A extremely grateful and B. delighted to buy you a pint. Thanks for all the fun and we look forward to seeing many of you at the Beverley Folk Festival. You've certainly got us hooked.

For lo, a plain brown box arrived in the post and when 'twas opened Golden light ( as of finest Cider in the sunlight) poured forth and in the clear Golden light was revealed the simple elegant ,silvery lines of the Grail(aka Miccas Tankard)and it has returned to its damask lined box in the sanctuary to await its refilling with the Power of the Mighty Cider,in the mystical ceremony of "going to the pub" and Festivalling,,,,

What I dont understand is how it got covered in lipstick marks and little stickers, saying, Glastonbury, Frinton, Oban, Penzance, Ynys Mon, Tintagel, Grimsby,and many more,and references to festivals that I have not attended, like Chippenham and Copull, and is redolent of the aromas of strange brews. It seems to have travelled widely, unaccompanied, and been popular, I wonder if its been singing???...

Omigod! Chippenham!
It's all coming back to me...visions of this northen loony with an evil grin peddling her "Arkwright's Instant Irrigation Clinic" around the festival - an attraction which featured a length of rubber tubing, some soapy water and a stainless steel vessel looking suspiciously like the one in those pix.
i don't want to worry you Micca me old mucker, but...

The Yorkshire Gathering (Tune Holy Ground)
By Micca

Fare thee well my lovely Tankard
And the Jug likewise adieu
I am going a way from the Yorlshire mob
That we from the mudcat knew
We have drunk DT and cider
Until we were quite full
But still we hopes to see again
Nutty M and Les from Hull,
fine girl you are

We started on the Friday
With a splendid sing around
And no one sung Wild Rover
Or yet the Holy ground
But we drank DT and cider
and other stuff as well
and one day we'll return again to the lovely JeZeBeL
fine girl you are

At Lunch time on the Saturday
With Llanfranc and Geordie Broon
We sang of whales, we sang of ships
And how they both went down
But we drank DT and cider
and shorts and pints quite big
and one day we'll return again
with Mouldy, Patrish and Tig
fine girls you are

That evening was the the ceilidh
With Sam and Ian and Bill
and Skip and Spot and Noreen
and the dancers danced their fill
But they drank DT and cider
That they'd hauled up from the Jug
and one day we'll return again to dance with Mrs Duck
fine girl you are

So now were scattering homewards
and this gatherings at an end
and we are cast adrift again
from our new found, long lost friends
and the secrets of my mind my friends
is the same as it was before
that some day we may meet again
Inside the Jug once more..
Fine guys you are

Have you told Les he's changed sex? Or has the shock of finding the Holy Grail was female affected your thoughts??:-)))
