Today the machine people came to empty the machines, an episode that was not without incident. I was distraught when Dave manhandled Sausage and proceeded to sit on him! Obviously I rescued poor Terry and explained to Dave that you cant just turn up at a pub and sit on my bar buddies, what was he thinking? He apologised profusely and backed away so I think he understands.
Now before you think that I am overacting let me show you my bar buddies this evening, firstly this is the guys and gals sat at the bar. Only an alcoholic drinks on his own where as us guys are having a ball.
Now a zoom in for those of you who noticed, sorry I couldn’t get him upright for the photo! Yes the sausage has had too much and was meant to go home 3 pints ago but hey what can I do he’s a mate after all.
Now the observant will has spotted one of the crew is isolated, this is not due to coronavirus so we are OK. In these tough times I have told Terry that the joke that I do not even have to open two doors is wearing thin. I have told him he can sit their until he can play nicely. He keeps saying sorry but I am ignoring him until his timeout is over!
In other news I have, once again, made a random decision about the colour of the pub and, despite current conditions, have been supported by Dulux. So paint arrived today, the two tins that I ordered yesterday and the one ( I forgot) that I ordered today both arrived together despite the later one incurring a delivery charge! Always impressed with these guys, not the speed of delivery or the choice but the ability to charge so much for so little. 12.5L of emulsion is £200, top skills guys! I will leave you with the photos below to show the madness of stripping the spirits from the bar and leaving the Dulux liquid gold on display !
Stay safe guys and if you can I would suggest that today is a great day to get drunk.
