Hiya young Pete.

What's that you'er hiding behind your back? It looks a bit like a posh frock!

soop Mon 01-Oct-12 13:27:40

I visited the old thread and went all goosebumpy because I thought that Lil's may have closed after the bar inspector's last visit. Must confess, he did appear in a trance as he staggered from the cellar with his toupee all askew.

Now, what's all this about a posh frock? Have you been dressing up again, Pete grin

Pete Mon 01-Oct-12 16:32:44

It's too big for me soop !! I found it in the snug during the power cut wink

Don't forget the 'quiz nite' gramps...(did you manage to find the answers in Lil's back room)? grin

gramps Mon 01-Oct-12 17:18:24

Many more questions than answers I'm afraid Pete.
I'll get back to you later - a bit more snooping I think!

gramps Mon 01-Oct-12 22:53:34

Help! the quiz answers are all in code!!

Pete I think we need a decoder -are you any good at figures? (daft question!!!)
The 2+2 are 5 type?

Pete Mon 01-Oct-12 23:41:07

Don't worry gramps once we 'top up' the laydee's large G&Ts and 'cider n blacks' they forget what day it is... grin

gramps Tue 02-Oct-12 08:33:09

We could supply our own answers - but do we know the questions?

Pete Tue 02-Oct-12 08:41:52

Well, as you say...more questions than answers! Think I'll stick to darts grin

soop Tue 02-Oct-12 14:32:01

Gramps and Pete ...I lurve yer banter. smile

gramps Tue 02-Oct-12 21:41:14

Oh soop. Are you evesdropping again on our chatterings?

Have we no secrets from those pretty blue (?) eyes?

If you carry on in this fashion, we shall have no choice but to soopnap you and persuade you to join our Union of Scallywags. We have means of making you compliant.
Such as - the fluffy tickling stick. the squelchy sponge, the dangling spider , and other horrors!
Liquid delights come as extras, to be paid for in Scottish bank notes. (without torn edges!!) grin

Pete Tue 02-Oct-12 22:50:41

I could bring my own tickling stick gramps...

It's about time we had a 'Fancy Dress' night in the bar, instead of Lil winning it outright every night grin
not sure, but I might go as a newt...? wink

So glad you all kept going after your mega 1000 post of fun.

Long life and peace and continued happiness in Lils Bar 2, from an admirer.

Hey, Pete, I've got a good name for your newt - "Pistas" - yeah !

gramps Wed 03-Oct-12 06:48:43

Hi Pogs.
On behalf of my co partners in crazy, nay, zany bandinage, who are not yet sober enough to disturb, sshhh. Many thanks for your kind comments. We are but actors on the stage of life, endevouring to bring a little laughter into this troubled world, in which we live - nay, exist!!
(looks around hurriedly for something from Hamlet!!) Pete, HELP, I've got me toga caught up in the spin dryer an' I'm going round in ever decreasing circles.
I told you it was a mistake to take the bloody door off!! Ooohh OWW 'elp!!

Pete Wed 03-Oct-12 13:20:51

gramps Shouting and bawling at 'daft 0'clock' is not the best way to be woken shock
Besides, the only thing I know from Hamlet are cigars.
'Pistas' rings a bell somewhere.....Is the bar open?

Pete Wed 03-Oct-12 13:21:57

POGS smile

Anne58 Wed 03-Oct-12 13:30:45

As everybody knows, the answer is 42.

gramps it's a good thing that you don't have dyslexia or it could have been your goat you got caught up in the dryer, and heaven only knows what that might have led to.

Pete Wed 03-Oct-12 19:13:05

I'm trying to find double twenty-one to find the answer on the dart board...gramps was last seen in the herb garden looking for his goat, no I'm not's been a long afternoon grin

Littlenellie Wed 03-Oct-12 19:34:57

We had a newt when my kids where were little called pistasa,we found it in the gardengrin

gramps Wed 03-Oct-12 22:24:45

I was looking for the Hamlet wardrobe box, but in the darkness of the cellar, I got the toga from the Julias Ceasar box instead. i hope t didn't get damaged or the "Bar" Drama Group will have my guts for garters!!

Anne58 Wed 03-Oct-12 22:41:20

Some people that I worked for had a male goose called "Mahatma", but I digress.

Pete step away from the dartboard, gently and slowly, then no-one will get hurt. You won't find the answer there anyway. It is nothing like the platform in Harry Potter.

(Phoenix slides away, leaving behind her confusion, chaos and bewilderment, her work here is done!!!!)..................*FOR NOW*

(Evil laugh emoticon)

Pete Wed 03-Oct-12 23:07:30

I've often heard people calling after your newt,usually late at night, nellie...thought they were referring to me... grin
phoenix I've moved away from the dartboard, like you said, now on the pool table...if I pot the 4 and the 2 ball does gramps turn into a goat?

Just a half Lil...think I'll take to me bed....

gramps Thu 04-Oct-12 14:12:15

I don't know about being an old goat, but(t) I bet there are a few "Nannies" on here!

Anne58 Thu 04-Oct-12 16:47:14

gramps , that is not worthy of your obvious intellect!

Pete have you been at the mushrooms again?
