Well, I'm taking a risk as well, ticking of a woman who can drive a tank! And an Israelite as well, bless her! But I think Sailor_Steve's argument wins the day - she married you...! But it's like my daughter posted on her door for a while- - "Wierd. But a good kind of wierd!" Barmy-ness is a quality to be envied, I believe.

A belated welcome to Jara!

I see we've only tea left - AGAIN! Time for our silver-tongued bar steward to confound regulations art the depot.

I think forty years of floor top (or is that floor bottom?) gaming combined with those other obsessions is an adequate qualification, Sailor_Steve! As far as I'm concerned, as VP, you're in. Mine's a... hmm... tea :-(

To the question of Fullofit's wife, whilst we'd certainly welcome some female company in the clubhouse for as long as we're sober enough to appreciate it, it CAN only be honorary. There's the tricky matter of the er... cough... cricket bat, you see. Ahem!.

Oh that I was back in the dear old PBI.
With no more Triplanes on me tail, nor tracer tracing by.
And no more flames and clickerty-clack and no more blooming sky,
And only a couple of feet to fall whenever I want to die.

Apologies all for my long absence from these digs. After the last blow-out we had here I suffered a bout of alcohol-induced amnesia and somehow or another ended up down in Belfort, labouring under the delusion that I was the mayor of said town. But I'm back and will indeed cast my "Aye" vote for Sailor_Steve. Glad to have you among the barmy mate, and further glad for yet another bar tab to abuse. BWOC BWOC BWOC!

Welcome back, Lou! Deej, keep yourself afloat! Dezh, we've sent Pvt. Muckraker with the oxcart to get the bar restocked. And WHERE'S THAT CRICKET BAT?

Um, the bat is with me in Jamaica at the moment, being blessed by the rastaman and infused with the essence of Appleton rum. I should have it back by the end of the week. Proper care of our esteemed equipment must not be overlooked! It is standard military requirements as you know.

Gentlemen!

I feel a cricket match in the offing!! We need Lou to ready said cricket bats and prepare for an over due evening of frivolity and the quenching of parched throats for this League of extraordinary gentlemen!! What say you all my friends! It has been way to long since we all swilled fine spirits and ale together and regaled one another of our tales of conquest and near death in the air! I will bust open my wallet and plunk down a hefty stipend to cover the first hour of consumption and the endeavours of our faithful barkeep!! Join me one and all you Barmy, daft, and slightly left of center gentlemen! I raise a toast to all of you!! Cheers!!

How timely you are Deej, I have just finished sanding down the cricket bat and refinishing it with a lovely coating of lacquer. It was quite a job and I am adequately parched to do your suggestion justice.
Three fingers of Tullamore dew for Lou who I am sure will be along soon, and an equal share of Lagavulin with a splash of water for myself please.

I would like to raise a glass to all those brave souls who have proudly kept the spirit of WOFF and BWOC alive in these trying times!

Let the games begin!

Outstanding idea, here here! Or there there, I'm not particular. By the way Deej, that's a nasty googly you have there, might want to see someone about it.

To quote Robert, let the games begin! cheers

Lou, Sir Robert!

Nicely done in having said cricket bats laquered and ready Robert! Tullamore, three fingers for Lou! A nice Lagavulin for you Robert to quench the parchness of your throat! The bar tab is officially running...now if we can just find some poor subject to paddle with said cricket bat in the name of frivolity!! Lou my medical practitioner told me drink plenty of fluids and gave me 2 aspirin for that nasty googly and told me it was all in my head! I say...here I sit drinking plenty of fine fluids to sooth said googly! Gentlemen I raise a toast to you both! Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties..and so bear ourselves that if the British Empire and her Commonwealth last for a thousand years Barmy Offers will still say.. This was their finest hour! The bar is now officially open good Sir Robert and Sir Lou! Let us gather the Barmy Offers to come hither and partake in swilling fine spirits and ale and begin a long session of frivolity! Release the cricket bat from its confines..let the games begin!

This is not the end. This is not even the beggining of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of rhe beggining.

I couldn’t resist some fine Churchillian quotations at the commencement of our festivities! Please gents drink copiously from the barkeeps fountain of youth until my wallet is dry and you thirst no longer!! Cheers!!

May I hum Brahm's 'Academic Festival Overture' while drinking my Samuel Smith's Oatmeal Stout with a round for everyone who'll listen? It's German music but since I like to fly German aircraft that's okay... right? There's a joke in there!

OK Human Drone! Have some black coffee first before I tell the tale! Brahms was awarded an honorary doctorate from the University of Breslau. The university expected more than a 'thank you note' as Brahms was so informed. Telling Brahms he had to do this or he had to do that was not what you tell Brahms!!! He was miffed to get suckered into having to write music for the 'doctorate'. Being the cheeky devil he was he took a bunch of school drinking songs and 'converted' them into 'classical' music for a special occasion tongue-in-cheek! Can you imagine the surprised look on the 'upper crusts' faces when they started to recognize the tunes? It's was brilliantly hilarious! Brahms is one of my faves! He kept a chair in his house that had a 'bad leg' and loved to seat society, especially female society, and watch them turn turtle backwards in that chair! Can you imagine how funny that would be especially when you don't have a society like we do now that will sue because you look at 'em cross eyed!
