    Huskie,

    Its never too cold for gluwine. Your right we citizens of St Sara's are all laid back individuals, (in my case almost comatose), as a consequence of over indulgence in the fine wares of the many bars.

    I am a little worried about our patron saint, out on the streets of Paris doing the doggie do slalom. Will her knees stand up to the repetitive strain? Will she catch pneumonia?

    Talking about feelings. Somehow, I think I prefer to feel someone else's rather than my own. This neverland stuff is almost introspective, going it alone? It just isn't the same.

    Sort of reminds me of a hair cut I intended to have in Da Nang in 1971. Happened on a place with a barbers pole outside and a barbers chair inside. Can you picture sitting in a barbers chair laid back in the shaving position, holding a self loading rifle.

    Well I left the establishment without the sort of head service that I had intended! Trouble was I had to find another barbers shop afterwards! :D

    Kind regards,

    Comatose is a matter of perception as in the one observing and the observee, who doesn't give a rats.... well you know.
    Da Nang, no place to get a hair cut in a local B Shop. Bad enough to feel the need to deal with the local talent as it were. Or feel the local talent. Times gone by and better left forgot maybe. LBJ,Nixon and TET.

    Anyway, Gluwine is welcome in my local at this time of the season,since we are in a full "Alpine downhill, Mogul Busting ,ski your a** off state.
    Bring on the "full busted freuline barmaids " with nipples that smell like Lowenbra, get it Lowenbra.
    Jellybean shooter and schnaps for all. Let the big dawgs howl!

    Huskie,

    And Less' can't uderstand my fixation for jungle greens. Having innocently discovered the "Barbers Shop", I must admit every time we went to town after that, even though the young ladies didn't strip, we always lined up for the special proffesional coiffure service offered by the fine establishment, prior to hitting the bars. :D The contrast in modesty in the women and the girls at home whom had all burnt their bras was quite noticeable.

    Just out of interest the year before last, I went to Da Nang to see whether it was still there. I couldn't regognise the general area it had been levelled and rebuilt. I was thinking of having a haircut for old times sake.

    We seem to be going in circles. I think I've mentioned before about my woes so far as early weaning is concerned and speculated on such a grand receptical full of Crown Lager. Liked the Low-in-bra one and yes Bismark Schnapps for all of St Sara's.

    Kind regards,

    Less',

    I wasn't joking, I was concerned. This maturing taste and developing love of champagne. I was almost expecting to hear that you were switching to grappa as your winter appelation at any moment.

    I am uncertain as to whether grappa is stocked in the sleaze bar at St Sara's. I feared that that would be one less' reason for you to grace us with your presence there. In any case St Sara d'Grappa just doesn't have the same ring to it. I suppose St Sara d'Champagne would just pass.

    We need more good woman at the Bar of St Sara's, after all Huskey has been hogging the barmaid and the rest of we mere mortals can't get a beer let alone the other.

    Kind regards,

    Sorry, I am not much for attracting female clientele, Gil, I've hung with the boys most of my life, and I kinda' like it that way. SO it's just me and the barmaid, if Jerry will kindly unhand her.

    I am enjoying a most satisfying brew, called "Trois Monts", must be some kind of French/Belgium thing, really, quite tasty.

    St. Sara de Grappa, nicht. St. Sara de Raki, maybe... Ever tasted an icey cold Raki cocktail, Gil?

    As per switching to champagne, no. Champagne must remain an exceptional treat,lest the nectar become as banal as sliced bread...

    :p

    Ive had a go at a few of those: In Turkey they make a local brandy of sorts out of plums and flavour it with anniseed. Sort of a cross between Slivovitz that the Yugoslavs drink in staed of water and Ouzo that the Greeks go for. I have had a go at arrack in several places, notabley in Sri Lanka. I also had a go at Raki-Raki a Fijian drink made from distilled coconut sap.

    Never ever cold though, we budget travellers always avoid ice like the plague its far too risky. Ice is usually made from water of dubious origin. I even brush my teeth in beer when travelling to avoid stomache bugs.

    I'll have to see If I can track some down and give it a go.

    I wasn't suggesting that you should compete with us for the women in the bar at St Sara's, Hell no weve got too much competition with Huskey already. :eek: I had always assumed that with the elevated standing among the group, that a patron saint could choose whom and whatever she liked. :p I had assumed that if the women had some body else to chat with on a similar feminine level and didn't have to venture in alone, then they may be more disposed to visit the establishment.

    If that happened then Huskey could perhaps let go of the barmaid long enough for us all to order another drink! :D

    Kind regards,

    Now, I know what you mean about avoiding ice. But y'know what? I think in a lot of countries we occidentals are waaaayyy too cautious about the water. You know, if it doesn't kill you, it can only make you stronger.

    But you're right, I think I actually drank a lot of warm Raki, I just remember it being ice cold, because at the time I was probably thinking "this is really good. If only I had some ice..."

    Apparently you haven't read the fine print in our constitution. No water allowed,for drinking that is. Personal hygiene usage accepted. Can't waste good beer to bath in.,ya know!

    initially, I was just going to watch. . . :D

    But if I must take one for the team and participate, who am I to shy away from responsibility.

    By the way, I hereby apply to membership to St Sara. Over 3 days (being 30, 31 Dec and 1 Jan) we managed to do 4 hours of riding a day. (I consumed a dozen ciders each day too.) (ooohh... my friggen head... peddle, peddle) :D

    Less',

    I don't believe we westerners are too cautious at all: I can tell you that the belly bugs in Egypt for instance aren't too pleasant. The western medicines were next to useless against such bugs. Having coped with diarrhoea for over a fortnight when travelling has made me rather cautious. Sort of takes the edge off an otherwise really enjoyable pastime.

    I think the citizens of St Sara's need to take a vote to see whether the mouses's uncle is a suitable citizen for St Sara's. :D Do we really need a coiffurist who specialises in Brazilians? However he is showing promise on the consumption side of things.

    Huskey, Your not desparately in need of coiffure to the groin area are you? I know when I had my vasectomy it has horrible! I'de rather get a Prince Albert rather than a Brazilian.

    Ratty, Do you do Prince Alberts? :D

    Kind regards,

    Huskey,

    Thanks for putting the barmaid down long enough for the rest of us to get a look in.

    At last the barmaid is free!

    I thought I was going to die of thirst. Where is she? Gone home for a shower?

    Or is she watching the football to?

    KInd regards,

    SR,

    Yes we're all here just trying to soak up the ambiance and trying our best to get a cold one.

    I'm at the head of the queue. Could I get you a drink? :D Huskey will be over the football fixation in about half an hour and unless we get a drink before then we may be very thirsty by the next opportunity.

    Kind regards,

    I had just sent her out for a couple of large pizzas. Man does not live by barmaid alone,you know.
    Besides if you want good service on drink orders wait until the ugly barmaid is on duty.

    Huskey,

    Ugly Barmaid? I can not think of anything more beautiful than a barmaid. You must have seen those beer advertisements haven't you? Anyway doesn't personality count for anything?

    C'mon Huskey, Tell me something more aesthetic that a barmaid carrying about 6 glasses, brim full with amber fluid. Regardless of how homely she may be, its still a fantastic sight. :D

    In St Sara's all barmaids are beautiful!

    Kind regards,
