    To all, tonight's the Harvest Moon, hear's to clear skies wherever you find yourself.

    Ya gotta love a full moon on a Friday with a class full of children.

    Drinkin' it all away tonight after spending the day painting in the studio. Tequila (my drink of choice) and Mexican accompanied by Country/Western music. Bob Wills followed by Willie and Ray Charles' Seven Spanish Angels. I wanna get a bottle of Tres Quatro y Cinco:



    The bottle alone makes me drool.

    Unplanned adventures are always the best. El Sancho, quite unexpectedly, found himself at the Hardly-Strictly Bluegrass Festival in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park yesterday. What a gas. It would've only been better if I'd've been there with a barefoot hippy girl and a jug of sweet red wine.



    And it was free!

    A wayward soul wearing a ginger seersucker suit, enters town after a long absence, his feet recall the way to that one time bastion of flowing nectar and camaraderie, bathed in the aroma of Old Spice and cow patties.
    The prodigal traveler produces his trusty can of WD 40, gives the hinges a soaking and steps into the Dreery Beery.

    A smart stomp on the floor and the old juke box comes to life… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EtfXnwi_Njo

    Pausing a moment, to inhale the past, he steps toward the Walnut bar; “ah yes, this layer of dust is perfect”. Now producing a forefinger, he plows a random passage from the Iliad.

    “Now the gods were sitting with Zeus in council upon the golden floor while Hebe went round pouring out nectar for them to drink, and as they pledged one another in their cups of gold they looked down upon the town of Troy.”

    Long time, no post...

    I've asked Parker to set up the Laphroaig, and he tells me the bar is fully stocked for any tasteless people for whom the holy nectar isn't enough.

    Anyone still come here?

    Where did we all go?

    Why did we all go?

    Good questions.

    I remember when this thread first started.

    Ah, bliss it was, that very dawn to be alive.

    There were a lot more people around then, too!

    Look on the bright side - fewer drinking the good stuff.

    Cheers!

    Well, hello!

    And from Scotland, too.

    Just don't tell me you play the bagpipes. We had a busker playing them in the main street the other day. I did enquire if I could pay him to stop.

    Ha!

    Thought you were from New Zealand, A'.

    Anyway, someone once told me that the finest sound that emanates any musical instrument is the sound a bagpipe makes in a dumpster when someone tosses a banjo on top of it. (There may have been accordion involvement as well)
