Had to pay the landlord an extra fiver a week, but he has extended our lease, phew! Safe again for a while for all Argy Bargies wanting a sit down and a pint of something, whilst getting things off their chests.🤪🥳🍺

Congrats lemongrove happy days.

Oohh that’s a bit of a hike in rent lemon - will we put the prices up for tonight? We’ve got time to change the board?

MawB Fri 14-Aug-20 14:27:32

Warm beer 🍺 and cold tea brew on offer?

Puzzler61 Fri 14-Aug-20 14:30:46

This is an upmarket establishment Maw, we have poteen, cocktails, poteen, craft ales (so Thor says), poteen and Warninks Advocaat is on special tonight as it’s 60’s night.

You’ll have a Poteen did you say? Take a seat ....

Puzzler61 Fri 14-Aug-20 14:38:14

Thor and Kev will be serving in these tonight. Anyone who is a Member will also be entitled to a Gold pair 😉
(I think they deserve to be seen again for anyone who missed them on the old thread).

All across the nation there's a strange vibration

Oh no I think Thor has just landed on MawB
The whole place is hippy hippy shakin'.

Here comes Kev and I'm feelin' good vibrations, excitations..................

see you all later, much later

Peardrop50 Fri 14-Aug-20 14:44:01

I gather the latest cocktail will turn our innards a whiter shade of pale so we'll be feelin glad all over

Thor and Kev have been sunbathing naked on the roof of the Argy. They are looking tanned and very muscley. They will bring in a good crowd in their gold pants or French Maid pinnies.

The Admiral wants to be naked too with just gold long johns but I don't think Lemon will approve. She is trying to attract punters not scare them away.

Could be a rowdy crowd but lemon makes them pay for 6 of her cocktails which keeps them fairly subdued for the rest of the night.

Better have some snacks to soak up the cocktails, I've got some on tasteful foil trays, couldn't find and doyleys. Cheese and pineapple on sticks, cheese and olives on sticks, tomatoes and cheese on sticks, shrimp on sticks, just about anything on sticks, been slaving over a hot stove all morning. Ooh and scotch eggs left over from some Christmas or other. Thought I'd put olives out in case anyone turned up as Nana Moscouri.
Fancy a Babycham anyone? Doodle?

Puzzler61 Fri 14-Aug-20 16:32:51

Have you got maraschino cherries on sticks 🍒 Lins to go with the Babycham? I can scoot round to the cash and carry for some ? ?

AGAA4 Fri 14-Aug-20 17:13:32

Puzzler I have hidden the spliffs under the bar for later. I hope the Admiral hasn't found them. He did look spaced out earlier.

I will bring some sausage rolls that I found at the back of the freezer. Use by 20 August - 1989. They will be fine with a couple of the cocktails. The ones with drain cleaner work wonders.

I hope Puzzlerhasn't used up all the toilet rolls on her flowers.

Lins1066 Fri 14-Aug-20 17:29:04

Got it covered Puzzler 😇🍸

Puzzler61 Fri 14-Aug-20 17:36:19

You hippy chicks have worked like trojans.

I did use all the loo roll, but replaced it with Izal. It’s a bit slippy, but no one will notice they’ll be “in the groove”.

Puzzler61 Fri 14-Aug-20 17:37:21

Pity the sausage rolls aren’t circa 1960’s AGA. Would be in keeping with the theme 😉

AGAA4 Fri 14-Aug-20 17:41:09

Doodle it is quite safe to come in. There are NO four legged creatures in here tonight apart from the captain who has been crawling round on his hands and knees all afternoon.

Too many lethal cocktails I am guessing.

Puzzler61 Fri 14-Aug-20 17:42:52

I’m practicing Patsy Cline’s “Crazy”.
I’m doing a turn with Bob O’Dylan, we’re singing it as a duet.

🎶 I knew,
You’d love me as long as you wanted 🎶
🎶 And then some day
You’d leave me for somebody new 🎶

I need a drink ...... I’m sounding more Vera Lynn that Patsy.
Not good (especially as she’s no longer alive).

AGAA4 Fri 14-Aug-20 17:43:32

Think I have some black forest gateau from that era Puzzler. Will that do?

Puzzler61 Fri 14-Aug-20 17:45:26

Oh Lush AGA . Chip the ice off it and bring it down . 👍

AGAA4 Fri 14-Aug-20 17:47:16

The cocktail with milk of magnesia or emulsion will sort out your vocal chords Puzzler.

Lins1066 Fri 14-Aug-20 17:49:32

You may find that your Black Forest Gateau is minus some cherries Aga 🤐

Lins1066 Fri 14-Aug-20 17:51:00

I've got some cherry tomatoes to put on, no one will tell the difference after a poteen cocktail or three.

AGAA4 Fri 14-Aug-20 17:54:25

I wondered where the cherries had gone Lins. I blamed the parrot. The tomatoes will do just fine.

AGAA4 Fri 14-Aug-20 17:57:45

Kev and I are going to sort out the spliffs so may be gone a while. Feeling groovy.

Puzzler61 Fri 14-Aug-20 18:03:11

Harry says Bob O’Dylan is in the air now, so I expect he’ll
drift in about 8 pm for a sound check, and a slippery nipple.
