    I suppose a six pack in the refrigerator a could be considered "chumming".

    I am not sure about Sara,she fell out of site about the time you took leave.
    I suppose she may have gotten involved with other sub-culture and defected although I imagine she has just been busy.
    My training has taken a nose dive this week,only one ride,because of the party Saturday but it should be a good one.
    Tiki Bar Style.The wife says I can't wear a floral print shirt unbuttoned.

    Huskey,

    Have you thought of the approach of one of my cronies whom I ride and drink with on occasions. Dick is into what he calls incidental exercise.

    I went to his house on one occasion and he was on the exercise bike, with an Esky set up on a table alongside the bike. He was peddling like crazy and holding a can of beer on the handles and watching television all at the same time.

    When I thought about it afterwards it wasn't such a bad idea. I now have the Esky beside me on the lounge when I watch sport. I figure doing two things at once is sufficient. :D

    Maybe you could set up the exercise bike with Esky and beer on the patio and get some exercise done in concert with the revalries. :p

    Somehow, I don't imagine you as somebody who would wear an Hawaiian shirt unbuttoned to the waist. :eek:

    Kind regards,

    All our calls have been in vain. Maybe they will show soon.

    Huskey,

    Susan has been contributing to the debate about black cycling shorts, but alas I fear that our patron saint has found another interest.

    Good to see that Ratty has found a use for the recycled beer we have been dispensing, maybe he hasn't realised that just because it works for some animals, it doesn't actually attract the fair ladies of St Sara's.

    Speaking of recycled beer, how did the house warming go?

    Kind regards,

    Actually it was a deck christening and it went well for about 25 people.
    Two others had problems,too much drink and too much mouth and another had marital discourse and my wife had to intervene in both situations. Kind of made it rough on her.Females!
    All in all it was a very good.

    Huskey,

    I am familiar with the concept of too much drink; In Australia we think that often Too much is barely enough. Too much mouth, I kind of understand the meaning: Sort of like peddling too hard while your deralliuer has not yet engaged your chain fully, but this marital discourse? Am I to assume that some fellow almost got lucky and your wife had to tidy things up before the third party in the matter discovered what was transpiring?

    Great stuff alcohol it can turn a 50 pound mild mannered weakling into a savage 240 pound brute in short order! :p I am sure thats what was in the telephone box every time superman went in there! :D

    Glad to hear that in general it went well. And I did know that it was a deck warming.

    Kind regards,

    Perhaps I should post a picture of me sporting some very porno white shorts. Mario Cippo style.

    The marital problem is an on going thing with this particular couple. She was there and he was not ,but kept calling and wanting to know where she had been all day.
    It wasn't there so we couldn't help him.
    He called and apologized yesterday.
    The big party is Labor day but I am going to one at the neighbors Saturday night. It's an annual thing and usually a quiet event.

    Your input is needed in a thread called Sex Appeal and Preferences. I am sure you will have a valuable contribution.

    Huskey,

    I'll peddle over and check it out! Is that wher Ratty discovered his liking for recycled beer? He must be a fully rounded character.

    See you over there!

    Kind regards,

    Huskey,

    There may have been a missed opportunity there. When I was much younger, if the sparring couple weren't close friends or family, I would have told him some semi-truth about the length time she had been at the party. Reason: There are two; Firstly, It tends to settle down the male inquirer and secondly the woman involved generally feels that you have done them a favour. If they don't reconcile in the long term it can pay off handsomely. The first time I did this it was for altruistic reasons, but when they called it all off, in the washup I got very lucky! I though all my Christmas's had come in one rush.

    When I reflected on the good fortune, this was the conclusion I arrived at. As a standard tool in my arsenal it has worked quite wekll over the years. :D

    Kind regards,

    Never take sides or bad mouth either party. They will probably reconcile at some point before breaking up again and will turn on you when they compare notes.
    It's off the subject but, beer drinking is cool. I just thought I would throw that in to keep the spirit of the thread.

    Huskey,

    I have found that they only ever turn on you in concert when they think you are interferring and they know you reasonably well. A little white lie can go a long way.

    Beer drinking is definately cool. I must say the Mexican's have a very good approach to it all. I particularly like their version of happy hours. It doesn't just go just one or two hours, they have it all the time, every day and it a two for one principle. Order one, as I did on the first occasion when I had a spare 5 minutes, - receive two, which I then had to gulp down in a hurry, order two, receive four etc.

    In summary, the two for the price of one is managed by bringing out a galvanised iron bucket with ice and twice as many beers as you order. I must say that when I first had it in a restaurant , I felt that the iron bucket on the table didn't seem to match the linen table cloths and silverware.

    After a few days it seemed quite natural and after a couple of buckets it even seemed to have an elegance. Problem was that you get more than two people at a table, the table was covered by buckets and there was nowhere to put the seafood platter when it arrived!!

    Some years ago I struck this two for one happy hour idea in Thailand, but the bottles of Sigha where about 700 ml and by the time you drunk the first one, the second one was no longer cold.

    In St Sara's I think we'll adopt the Mexican approach, but we'll have extra big tables so there's room for the food. :p

    I haven't previously taken to the idea of having a wedge of lime in the top of the bottle like the Mexicans have, but in the hot climate it seemed to go ok.

    I tried Estrella, Dos Equis, a few other local brands and of course Corona and all seemed to go well with the lime wedge in them. I tried it with a Crown Lager when I got home, but it is getting a bit cool now and I didn't appreciate it nearly as much.

    Kind regards,

    The large table would also come in handy for a short "Siesta" if you have a little too much.
    I really don't care for beer that needs to be flavored with lime. I tried the Corona several years back when it was such a fad but didn't get past one beer.
    Just not my taste.
    It is actually cool here for late May but graet for cycling. I suspect it will go from 70 F to 95 F quickly.
    The good thing about beer is that it travels well. It is compact,weather resistant,no assembly required and makes a great gift.
    What else could you want?

    i love beer, it could be cause I'm a Texan, or it could be that I'm Irish. Of course beer consumed in unnormal amounts is damaging true. but a beer at least 1 once a week and a veggie pizza always works for me.

    Huskey,

    The people were saying in San Diego that the weather there was cooler than usual a couple of weeks back.

    The weather here is great for cycling at the moment, the only problem is it is still dark when I get back after my morning ride. Sunrise is happening about 5:45 am and getting later at the present. I haven't struck any frost on the ground yet along the way but it can't be too far off. There is one spot along the Cooks River which is always cooler than any where else along the way where the frost first shows up each year. Foir the time being I will just have to make do with the frost on the Crown Lager bottles!

    I am getting back close to the times I was doing before the operation, but I am pulling up at the end, sore along the scar line after my rides. Still the surgeon says it will be six months before every thing is back to normal.

    YY,

    Believe me Texans are not the only people who like a beer. :)

    KInd regards,

    I love a good glass of wine, and I've found a few decent beers in my day, but I'm more into a good tequila (pure agave, please) or Hangar One. :)
