Subject: BS: Respite Tavern - Revisted
From: katlaughing

This is a mellow tavern. One of soft lights, cool, smooth drinks, and no televisions or radios, so it is completely devoid of any outside news. It is a place to come away from your cares and concerns. To tune up and tune in with friends in a mellow blend of voices and instruments. The only rules are no political/war debates and no brawling.

Back in ought three that's the way the whole thing started...now, we're putting some dusty roses in the vases, polishing up the mirrors and old, smooth-worn bar to offer another side of Mudcat...the one we've all been to before; the one that seems to get lost in the detritus of a ravaged world. Kinda like forgettin' to go to watch the sunset over the ocean or sit by a quiet running brook in the glade of a forest, or well, you know, darlin'...mellow-yellow, smoooooooth mooves, tender mercies strumming in a slow and haunting melody, THAT part of Mudcat! Nothing from the 3D world coming in 'cept fellow travellers ready for some Peace, Love, and Rest, yeah?!

So here's to a smooth and tasty amaretto sour, a fresh, cool breeze, and the faint strains of soft, tender guitar strummin' fading up...aaaahhhh....won't you join me?

(Same rules apply!)

Oh the relief. Hello there Kat ma darlin. You have done a lovely job with this place as usual. You are the Host of all Hosts.
To escape from the World of whatever and whatever (won't even say those the banned subjects words...sick of it all, need to get away from the repeating, drone)
Ah yes. The Sun is coming in through the open window accompanied by a gentle Breeze. maybe it's time to get the Mandolin out and join the Guitar player. Have to move the sleeping cat though from the Sofa..just a bit over there ma dear as I like you to sit beside me still. There now...sigh...Bliss!
This is one of my favorite places on the Mudcat. A respite indeed.
The long months of friction melt away under the Roof of the Tavern.
Ill sit a while in the hope that some Old Friends who haven't been around and who I miss so, pop in to say hello and maybe share some Music, laughter and Smoothies (Allan is the Smoothie King in my Book).
The Clematis has grown so high and the it's Flowers are peeking in through the Back window.
The Annuals in the Window Boxes are attracting the Humming Bird. Oh I needed this.
..... I know this tune. Margaret's Waltz. Now we're cooking:>)
Talking about cooking...any quick snacks on the go perchance!!

As always I am a bit apprehensive wandering into a new session for the first time , so I find a seat in a corner and start unloading the
various Calton cases (All white Fibre glass - WHAT a Poseur) then quietly get 'em all into Concert pitch . Margarets Waltz ? NIIICCE -
A Bit of whistle I think , and THEN I will see what the beer is like in here .

Quietly. Budget hearings, service level reports, OBE, family problems, house stuff, traffic snarls, personnel issues, building repairs, bodily aches and faults, all flow away and out the drains installed to dispose of such things.


AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH....

That's a lovely tune, Albadarlin'...c'mon Leadfingers, a bit of a whistle and who cares wotcher made of, eh? **bg**

Thanks to you, m'dears, my mind is free and relaxed..floating down the old mill stream, on a lazy, not-so-hazy summer day with my summer love...oh well, better stop with the titled cliches, eh?LOL

Love that amaretto sour, anyone else like something or have a tune for us?

Way Hey. Thanks for the head's up there Passing Cloud. Best go outside so the Bikes don't park on the soft lawn. Nothing for the Stands to go into! Ill direct them round the Back to the Tarmac. See Good Things come to Good People in Good Places!. As a Biker myself they must have got my message that the Tavern was open again..such a neat ride out to here. The Cliffs on one side and nothing but Fields on the other. Looking forward to a few old tunes with the Lads. Maybe later we can take Folks that feel the need for a breeze for a blast along the Coast Road?. Plenty Bikes and Riders by the sounds of it.
Shame you can't stay for a while PC. The Tavern is never a place where the outside world can spoil...only enhance.
The Stones coming in!!! Damn Keith Richards really does look like that way......Guess it must be nice for those Guys to go somewhere and be able to relax.
Youve come to the right place!

Jude

The bartender slides Guest 03:52 PM a nice glass of hard cider, with a Mickey Finn, gratis. Guest, anxiously looking around at the unusual mix of people and the preponderance of doors, throws the drink back quickly, looks a little sheepish, lays his head on the bar, and starts to snore. A couple of the regulars gather him up and move him off of the bar. He'll sleep it off and wake up much mellower, and no one will vomit on him over in that corner where the tree usually stands. Just nudge the cat off of the window seat, someone, please, while we move this fellow over out of harms way. . .

I visit regularly, and usually bring smoked salmon. There's not enough if all of those bikers come in--but it looks like they're having second thoughts. Too much clematis climbing on the building, a little too folksie, wayyyy to mellow? (They obviously haven't heard about christmas two years ago!) If MMario comes by he'll have to throw a couple of aurochs on the rotisserie.

Whew! Beautimous Barkeep-ette, put the kettle on, wouldja? Herding them Go-Go Hamsters is a thirsty business.

They are oh-so proud of their new show "Go-Going Gone: A Rodent Retrospective" that they can't wait to shake a tail-nub for y'all. I realize there wasn't any mention of it at the Tonys this year (although I heard a rumor that Hugh Jackman was entertaining the crowd during commercial breaks by singing songs from it) but the hamsters are happy all the same.

While they work the kinks out, I'm gonna take myself a sit-down over here in the bench by the bay window. I can peek through the clematis at the bikers this way!

I don't think I have the strength to hold up my end of the bargain at the kissing booth this go-round, so when I get rested, I'll get a marker and change the sign to a "You Show Me Yours, I'll Show You Mine" surgery scar viewing booth. Vasectomies pay double, lobotomies ride for free. We can at least raise a few bucks to put on Bert's tab, eh?

Well, this is what I had been missing. No evening off since sometime last week. thursday open mike is not optional. I managed to beg off being a church board officer but I still have managed to accept committment to a group with 7 different interpretations of spiritual growth.

Maybe there are a few friendly shades here? Ah, I'll go get THAT one to show me why I can't find all the chords to "Sing a Rainbow."

Barkeep, here is a bottle of cognac, one of Tia Maria, and a quart of heavy cream. Please pour in equal parts over crushed ice and keep 'em coming. I used to pull down   pitchers to earn my way through senior year. er, 35 years ago. Do the taps still work the same?

Plant swap out that side door on the patio -- the one with the vine-covered wooden thingie -- lessee, I've got artemisia, hostas, rooted cuttings from a pink rambler rose, LOTSA blackberry suckers if you wanna start a patch, here's a peony sucker (red), a couple lilac suckers ... who else has garden stuff to swap?

The cat indeed came back!!

After an horrendous week of calling the animal hospital (when I wasn't in the human one myself), and making the decision to let the Amber cat go - quality of life and all that..... I'd broken the news to Limpit and we'd already picked out a replacement kitten.... Amber cat decided that she wasn't ready to go.

She's back home, putting on weight, sleeping, eating, sleeping, washing, napping and doing all those things she used to do, with a new sparkle in her eye. Finally after 4 months and about £500 in vet bills, we've cracked this infection thing. No relapse after a week and she's looking more like her old self.

Respite indeed.

And last night, I was out shopping at a craft store when I bumped into a very dear friend who was at a loose end and we ended up having dinner and going for a very long walk around some lakes. It was a glorious evening, still, fresh and bright. We walked for a couple of miles (something I couldn't do 2 weeks ago!) along overgrown paths, never farther than 8ft from a lake or canal. We saw many heron, geese and goslings, swans and cygnets, 2 pairs of crested grebe, a jay, a pair of terns, bright blue dragonflies, reed warblers, robin, blue and coal tits, and a long tailed tit. But best of all was a flash of electric blue streaking across the lake, that was gone in a split second - only the second time I've ever seen a kingfisher - and all this within 20 mins driving of London!

All it needed was a cool pint of beer in a pub garden to complete the evening. Unfortunately, I had to get home so I've come in here for the cool beer. I am soooo chilled out and relaxed that even the London Underground failing didn't annoy me.

Having my Amber cat at home and happy, and that little flash of blue kingfisher is better than any antidepressant I've taken.

Slide that cool beer down the counter and I'll prop my feet up on this unconscious GUEST.... All I want is a pussycat in my lap and some good listnin' and sippin' music..... Play on, McDuff!

SINSULL here in the corner. My computer died as did my furnace. The Notebook is out of commission thanks to SPRINT. And I turned my ankle. But life is good. With the Captain out of town, I have the use of his computer and even better his dog Seamus. So Seamus will have a Guinness. (Just don't tell Kendall) and I will have a nicely chilled Pinot Grigio. How about some some soothing music to help pass the time?

Oh a room without boxes... I'm just going to stretch out my legs and forget about the guy who hasn't shown up yet to put down my kitchen floor. So what if my cabinets are in the garage. I've got plants to add to the swap and there's no pesky boarder folks to worry about pests and other such nonsense. No self respecting pest makes it through the tavern doors.
I've got some sorbet peonies and a shell pink to share. oh and if anyone wants Tansy I've got lots to spare. Hosta, Shasta Daisy, Mallow, Iris. And I just put a big bunch of mint behind the bar for drinks. MAG I think I'll take some of the rose clippings for the godess garden.

Now let me tune this guitar and find someone to follow....

You're going to have to sing over the noise of the cats purring in the windowseat. Quite a cat-cophony. Those Shasta daisys look very nice--mine got so wet last week the flowers gave up. I have extra coreopsis if you'd like to step out and take a look at the pots in the back of the pickup. They're right beside the ice chest full of cold Negra Modelo beer. The bartender was out last time I asked, so I brought my own.

Is MMario still knitting? Is he planning to come cook? I couldn't lift something like that auroch by myself even if I wanted, so he'll have to take care of the big stuff.

Ah, I was wondering where the recovery ward wandered off to. I've been dazedly bouncing (slowly) off walls (mostly garden walls), chomping on clonazapam (so Curmudgeon won't say "Did you take your pill?!?") and swilling Tirconnell.

Let me just curl up here in the wingchair by the fire with a couple cats in my lap and one on my, uh, "shelf". (Oh, and here comes another over the back of the chair to wrap himself around my neck -- famous trained cat scarf.) Sigh. That feels good. What am I sipping? Someone once said you're never too old for cookies and milk even if it does turn into gin and tonic (or Lagavulan and lokoumi).

I'm taaaaahred. Just nudge me if I doze off. (And please don't let me drool.)

Then again, some of that lobster stew might be nice and comforting -- big chunks of tail and claw meat? Not just stuff picked from body? Ummmm . . . now THAT's comfort.

How long can I hide here?

And talking about gardens is nice, but mine's being a tyrant. Things are walking all over the place and I have to herd them back into their pens, I mean, beds. And the goat's beard needs to be moved a looooong way away from the hostas in the turnaround. Maybe turn them into a "hedge" along the side of the way back raised bed garden. Mostly everything needs to be moved somewhere else. But there I go, talking about work again.

I'm just going to sit here and dunk heavily buttered rolls into my lobster stew and listen to the music on the other side of the room. Oh, and keep the cats' paws and tongues out of my stew . . .

does anybody remember how to make those little woven baskets out of an odd number of lavender and a piece of ribbon?? You tie the ribbon (narrow type) just under the flower heads, then weave the ribbon through the bent back (and hopefully willowy) stalks, and when you are done tie it on the outside -- well, I guess I remember well enough to give it a shot.. right after the dance .. abd a couple other things. if I wait long enough the lavender will be all done and I can forget it.

Funny how we all seem to be centered on our gardens. Why not have Geoff the Duck do a little groundwork for us--then we can each toss out some seeds or poke in some of our extra plants and see what happens. Start a nice patio garden for the Mudcat Tavern. I know I saw some ornamental grasses out around the side next to the chimney and some attractive old redwood siding. Maybe build out from there? And put in some purple martin houses and toss a couple of BT dunks in the standing pond so we can sit out there without being devoured by mosquitoes.

I expect the juggling custard is mine - whatever you do, don't toss it unless you know how to catch it. It's a bit like a boomerang, You never know where it will end up! For those who don't believe, I'll produce photos some day.
As for being fuzzy - I never quite worked out the rules for "Fuzzy Duck" - if there really are any.
I'll pass on the Groundwork, I came here to chill... anyway you need a pig to do a really good job of rotovating. Just bury a few peanuts at random spots in the garden. If you are lucky they might unearth a few truffles to go with the lobster!!!
That Regency Gazebo is smart. A notch up from the one at the Yorkshire Gathering.
Anyway - I must get back to my tropical island if the bloody pirates will shut up singing "Yo Ho Ho and a bottle of rum..." or at least put some Shrub in it and pass it round.
Quack!

Sorry, MAG, I've been out/in and about too much and missed your request. The only way I've ever known to make amaretto sours is just to pour your pleasure over some "rocks", then add a bit of sour mix...it's really to taste, and then sip. I don't think the sour would go well with vanilla ice cream, but the amaretto might, esp. with some apricots!

I've got a newly decorated bathroom this week, new sink, new paint, new cabinet...it's loverly!!

Will the new Regency Gazebo have a fully plumbed toilet as the Yorkshire Gathering 'Gazover' (pun on gazunder, nickname for a jerry po, potty or chinaware)? I really liked sitting in a field, on porcelain, piddling, whilst watching the birds and waving at the neighbours. Not sure how they felt about it though.

Please make sure there a goodly supply of large leaves, without spines or stings, available though!

We got new bedroom curtains to block the early morning sun (Manitas objected for some reason, I don't know, 5.00am is a lovely time of day), so now the room looks gloomy and red. Ah well......

At least they go with the paintwork.

Rather than put the throne right there in the gazebo, why not landscape an area off to the side with somewhat taller shrubs that you can see over while sitting? It won't exactly be a gazebo-ette; I guess we could shorten it and call it a gazette. And it goes without saying that a gazette provides a non-ending supply of paper for the use you have in mind.

I agree with you, Liz, that 5:00 in the a.m. is a lovely time of day. and my remaining kitty reminds me that in the a.m. is kitty breakfast time. I was actually up around then today; it seems the only time I can spend tidying my Bless-this-mess house and getting in my quota of one-bushel-a-day of weeds and prunings. It's quiet, except for the birds.It's cool and nice. the auto sprinklers have run, and the garden glistens. The birds seem to think it's a bird shower or water park. I deliberatly have my bedroom on the east side so I can't oversleep (doesn't work in winter). My front yard is all wildflowers; grass is boring. and sneezy.

My friend Nancy can't get over what she calls my all-pink house. (No Nancy; the carpet is ash rose; the paint job is mauve ...)

I was inspired by a little picture book called *The Big Orange Splotch* by Daniel Pinkwater. If I'm gonna be chained to the place then by golly, by gum, I'm gonna have fun doing what I want with it.

One of my favorite SF writers once said, "It's foolish to give up what you loved as a child." Well, playing in the dirt and mud is right up there.

Has anybody else read a psychological thriller titles *Sophie?* Book discussion group, right over here... in this nook with trailing datura plants ... yes, they say if you inhale deeply enough, ...

Kat reopened the Tavern as a respite from the increasingly hostile political threads.
How lovely to relax with a congenial bunch who share one's interests!

Outside, the sound of a large beast shambling round the yard, breaks the quiet of the Tavern. There are honks and squeals as it goes about its' business.
Duck saunters over to the window, opens the pane and leans out. "You're doing a good job there!".
He watches for a few minutes whilst the animal smell drifts in through the window.
Eventually he pulls a large embossed gold pocket watch from his pocket, looks at it and calls through the window, "Okay - you've probably got enough nuts buried, You can go and fetch the pigs!".

Can a clone do a little spell-check on the banner? Remove the extra "L"

"alcolhol with caffiene"

I'd rather pay in ounces than in pounds. . .

now everyone will wonder where the 'L' did it go! -joeclone

Howzabout we move back onto the patio garden with the sylphlike cool breezes, fragrant flowers, tall spiked lemonade, et. al.??

Happy voices raised in harmonic song??

We are still needing a RESPITE ... or at least I am ...

Anybody else know Appalachian Lullaby?

In fact, cancel the Jack. Mumm's Cordon Rouge all 'round on Bert!

Put the minestrone in the brown bowl on Bert's card and stop quibbling! Why are there prices AT ALL? It's all on Bert's card! I think we've been sidelined.

Hey, I have this little mist attachment in the back of the pickup--it goes on the hose end and puts out a very fine mist that feels marvelous on these hot days. It stands up like a lime-green cobra. :) MAG, you may set up this little device near you on the patio--guaranteed to cool you quickly!

Meanwhile, I'm going to slip on my swimming suit (since I don't have absolute privacy in my back yard) and set up the hose-end shower that I picked up for the kids. It feels SO GOOD to have that soft water pouring out over your head--and I'll set this up over near the squash and Swiss chard that need a little extra water right now. Perfect! I'll water people and produce! Set up a glass of that lemonade for when I get back, please. (Any of you may use the yard shower after dark and go with or without a suit--but only if you can stand the mosquitoes).

I going to join Sinsull in that Cordon Rouge. What a relief! It will be nice to sit and relax in good company before a busy weekend looking after my grandson and hopefully getting to the Sunday night session for Black Walnut. There's about a 120 mile drive between the two events so it's going to be a busy weekend! Any chance of lobster tonight?

I have to give myself the day off tomorrow to tend to some personal business. Should I spend the heat of the remainder of the day digging up things which need dividing, or should I find some air-conditioned shopping?? or movie?? or ...

well.

Here are the words to Appalachina Lullaby, a rather arty round. First I'd better go check the DB ...

OK, no previous mention.

It is a copyright composed song by one Craig Dobbins, who apparently does choral-type arrangements of thins, but his name is on this one.

Take me back O hills I love

Lift me from this lonely bed

Light(guide?) my way with stars above

Wrap soft winds above my head


Wash my feet in crystal streams

Cradle my arms in boughs of oak

Send me (.........)for dreams
Wrap me tight in earthen cloak


I've got a couple of recordings of this; I'll have to go have a listen. It's gorgeous.
