Going to ring in the new year after last night? Ya see last night twas the first Thursday after the full moon, and as some of you may remember that night is Irish night at my favorite pub. They pack the small pub in the back of a general store on the shore of the hudson with musicians and take ya back to days of Erin. Singing in Gaelic, and the pipes oh the pipes were a calling me. So I got an itch last night with a cuppa me boiys, and we liberated the bar . They brought their instruments and played a dandy tune whilst I did a jig and many a pint of Harp an Guinness did flow. Twas a record turn out at Guinan the wee general store with a pub in the back. But aye me head is a bit pinched and I'm off to the office can I summon the spirit to do more tonight, and ring in ye new year?

With tons of dog hair flying around,..... You are close to answering your own question.

One hot humid summer morning an old drinking pal came by the house to pick up some scrap metal I'd promised him. He was bit hard. He knew I hadn't taken a drink in some time but up until we were loading the metal into his truck the subject had not been approached.

He bent down and a bit of hurl crossed his pallet. He swallowed back and looked at me with a slight strained grin and asked, "Chris, what's it like?". I smiled back.

I am grateful that hair off the dog is no longer an option/necessity to get some relief from the pain.

Welcome to a fresh new year to you all.

Morning Chris, I say we give Joe a call and see how he's doing. Of course we'll have to let it ring a few times. ;) :D

I say we remove the mufflers from our cars and drive up and down his driveway all morning! :D

Maybe some of that celtic music would do it. Bagpipes should steel the nerves?

Aye, me too mate.

Bagpipes aren't necessary,,,breathing and sitting on the pot is loud enough.
Bill Cosbys skits on heavy drinking are hysterical..."I...worked.....all...week....to.....feel......this ...way....uhhhhhhhhh"
My memory is from 15yrs ago, sitting on the pot to pee. "this isn't right, I shouldn't have to sit to pee "..

shhhhhhhhh I just woke up :eek:

I will tell you a funny story about this morning. About 15 years ago I lived in Philadelphia. New years eve I had done some professional drinking and made it home fell face down in my bed. Now Tradition in Philadelphia is on Jan 1st they have this LOUD Mummers day parade. MY ground floor apartment was on the parade route. 8:00 am I was shocked out of bed by a umpa band playing marching music outside my windo. :eek: This lasted all day. It was cruel torture.

Joe, I hate to bust your bubble but you are still an amateur drinker. There is only one way to turn professional and I hope you never do.

Hey TGP; You never know - maybe Joe was a pro working that bicycle boy buff bod back in those days... ;)

Around here we refer to New Years Eve as "Amateur Night."

By the time I quit drinking the dog was dead, and he was bald before he died. ;)
