Scrumpy


I've been round the block a few times.. and way back could hold my own with the best of 'em..
I remember sliding off the bar stool .. eyes focused on the Ladies.. concentrating hard to look dignified as I walked across the bar floor.. looking left nor right.. just straight ahead..
Then someone calls out 'Hi Irene'.. The Ladies sign is lost forever..

Today I can drink probably one wine.. not a full glass.. What happened..!!
Don't ask me.. I know nuffink..

hugh

Not an age problem Irene  :grin: :grin: :grin:

Possibly you only thought you could hold your liquour and time has been a censor of when you didn't.  :grin:

We live in a time when intelligent people are silenced so that stupid people won't be offended

When I read that Raven.. Alex and GrannyMac are meeting up with friends and having a drink I am well envious..
We just meet up for coffee.. !!
Don't ask me.. I know nuffink..

Raven

Scumpy I don't drink alcohol these days. I like it but it doesn't like me, makes me really sick and I often get a migraine. I drink a varity of soft drinks and I'm also the driver.

Scrumpy


.. do they tip you Raven.. !!
Don't ask me.. I know nuffink..

Raven

Naw lol. It's usually only Dunc in the car with me. The rest live in the village not far to walk. We have a couple of miles to our road end, then a good bit up it. Quite a hoof and really not safe on foot, narrow road with no space for walkers.

Alex

Like you Scrumpy I've been round the block a few times  :grin:  Now I look back, I don't know how I drank so much and stayed on my feet.   I lived abroad for  ten years and the "culture" was either Brits drinking in each others homes, or just drinking in the house, which I never did in UK.
That lifestyle stuck with me when I came home I'm afraid.

Nowadays I have booze in the house still, but I rarely drink, maybe a pink gin occasionally :cool:.   Meeting the girls is always lunch times in a pub where they all knock 'em back and I stick to Coke -  :grin:

Scrumpy


What is a pink gin.. what do you mix with it..?
I don't mind a Vodka and Coke.. or a Gin and Tonic.. a red wine.. or even a Bacardi and Coke.. I like Ginger wine...
I've got to stop now.. I feel wobbly.. !!
Don't ask me.. I know nuffink..

Alex

I mix a shot of Greysons pink gin with tonic Scrumps, the gin is from Aldi, it's a similar price to Gordons, but I prefer the Aldi one. :grin: :grin:  My Mum used to drink gin and I hated the smell of it, it was like chemicals to me, this pink stuff smells better !

Scrumpy


Hey Alex..!! Do you remember the days when the drink went down our throats so bloody quickly we didn't have time to smell it.. !!!!
Don't ask me.. I know nuffink..

Alex

In those days I drank anything - apart from gin.  Do you remember Cherry B over Cider ?

Scrumpy


Yes.. I liked cider.. Still prefer it to coke when I am really thirsty..
Cherry B.. !! I was sick on that once ... thought I had haemorrhaged ... ( that spelling doesn't look right)..!!
Don't ask me.. I know nuffink..

Sheila

That's a blast from the past.  I used to enjoy Cherry B but would not thank you for one now.  Babycham was another favourite.

Alex

ooh yes or Brandy and Babycham, now that was s t r o n g  :grin:
