I still canít decide on my ensemble: I donít want to clash with the trendy Southerners by wearing dowdy Midlands attire: but Iíve lived in the Shires for so long my tweeds are a bit dated and my overalls are too filthy to drink in, even in the pubs we are going too.

I was bringing my own paper bag just to fit in: Iíll have to have a major re-think now. A Panama Hat with a cream suit was another option: but someone might spill something on it, so Iíve shelved that idea.

Looks like the leather kilt and gas mask again then!

<*))))))><


Surely it should be flat cap and string round the trousers whilst walking a whippet. ;-))


You are thinking of those chaps up in Preston or Greater Manchester: we Shropshire dwellers are a lot more sophisticated and all live on huge estates (sadly some of the estates are Council owned, but I donít mix with those sort!).

This is a bad day. Something has cropped up and I canít make the Black Country Beer Bash. Been looking forward to it for Months. Gutted.

Colin and Fergus thanks for the offers of the beers, but if we cross paths sometime later in the year for some other event and you still have the bottles going maybe we could arrange it then.

Shame I wonít be meeting you all. But I am sure you will have a great time in my adopted Black Country. And I am sure I will hear all about it on the Local Central News, just before sports round up.

Damn I need a drink.




There will be another time for wassailing.

I will be wassailing that day, its just going to be back home in Yorkshire. My parents have decided to have my sisters surprise 18th Birthday party that day. I told them it would be a SURPRISE if I didnít turn up, but they werenít having it. So a day of drinking sparklers.

It would be a surprise for her if She were on the trip too.

This http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/lambrini/68481/ is what she would bring to the tasting session. I notice Tomman as already tried it though.

Would anybody be offended if I brought along this to the taste on the bus http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/frosty-jacks/3077/ from what I can see no one has had it ;)

I would be careful and keep it out of sight when in the Wolverhampton area. Frosty Jack and Iphoneís are highly desirable items and increase the chance of you being mugged.

Bring it by all means: but donít expect me to have any of it.

My Shropshire Scratchings for the bus will be taken with something a little more up-market, I shall bring two bottles of whatever I decide, so everyone gets a good amount: your single container will of course be even larger than my litres worth.

Sounds like Erdington, once seen a street drinker asleep hugging a 3 litre bottle of Frosty Jack.
