This morning I was volunteering at the gift shop so P went to visit a friend, to take him a newspaper, have a chat and fix his smoke alarm.
They are both gentlemen of a certain age, of slightly irascible temperament and not used to holding back their opinions.
The friend's wife calls them Waldorf and Statler...
Did they meet up with Kermit and Miss Piggy? Pubs were invented for men like the above to put the world to rights.ReplyDelete
Even these two draw the line at visiting the pub at 9:30 a.m.Delete
When I visited Kent last year you good go in Witherspoon's order a full "English" breakfast and wash it down with a pint of "Doombar".ReplyDelete
Wetherspoons, silly autocorrect.ReplyDelete
When we lived in Tenerife we would go shopping at the local market in the morning and pop into the bar for a coffee. The Mayor, the bank manager and the rubbish collector would all be in there drinking their early morning brandies.Delete
The Mayor, the bank manager and the rubbish collector sound very sensible and of equal importance. What a nice way to start a morning.ReplyDelete
Yep. Side by side, chatting and drinking. All equals at the bar counter 😉Delete
Maybe the whole world needs to meet at the pub for a drink!ReplyDelete
Mine's a glass of fizz!Delete
The equality regardless of job and rank was something I noticed here in the Islands when I first arrived in the '70s. I don't recall brandies in the morning though!ReplyDelete
No, that did seem a little early!Delete
A little medicinal whisky perhaps.Delete
Keeps out the chill.Delete
I wonder how P and his mate refer to their spouses? Maybe Ena Sharples and Minnie Caldwell. Which one are you JayCee? Do you wear a hairnet?ReplyDelete
More like Ava and Marilyn.Delete
Loved the Muppet Show and these two old gents! Happy memories!ReplyDelete
Good clean fun 🙂Delete
Wives can be so cruel. Husbands would never be so disparaging.ReplyDelete
Sorry Tasker. I thought you were being serious there for a moment.Delete
