If ya find it, set it for 1975 for me. I got a score to settle.

:-)

Should I ask what happened then? Perhaps not.

yeah.. no. It wouldn't mean anything to anyone but me even if I told
the story.


I would have hid the money I earned better and said "No" more often to
my family even if it had meant that they'd have to have bread for
dinner instead of the meals that I slaved to cook. Maybe someone
would have realized something was very wrong in the house and helped.
I was just a kid.


Yeah, I know how that works. I got a Summer job when I was 15 and waiting
for exam results but I don't think I saw a penny of what I earned. Times
were hard though. We had the gas and / or electricity cut off quite a few
times when I was a kid. Both my parents had fairly serious illnesses at
various times and logged quite a bit of hospital time. With that history
and the economic climate at the time jobs weren't alweays easy to come by.

Thereya go. Wasn't that less pleasant than you thought it would be?


Sorry about that but I wasn't the *very* nosey one. ;-)

It was for me.


For better or worse our history is what helps to make us what we are, right?
Nothing to be ashamed of.

But then, you'll be the one with the Irish accent, I
suspect.....


Sorry, I'm English!
Freddie is Irish though.

Well, there'll be other guys there with English accents, so I guess
it's up to Freddie, then.....

So do I get a beer too, or is this a guy-only thing?

See Paul! Like I was saying!

Dennis ;-)

Heh. Nah, it's the beer I want, not the stag. That's ok. Christine and
Kate and I will just take our beer somewhere where we're wanted.....

(No! I'm not talking about the Post Office!)

Cele

So what you're saying is the reason why I don't like beer (just
catching on here) is because I'm 'Merican and not just 'cause I don't
happen to like beer?

'Kate


Nope. What I'm saying is that it's *possible* that the reason that you
don't like beer is that American beer isn't...well....the gold
standard...as it were.....

ducking and running

Cele


No need to duck and run......I don't drink that crap either....what is
really bad is when you get to places like Ga, and all they have ever heard
of is bud........


Or Billy-Beer

I'll take a 'blue' or 'golden' any day over the domestic stuff here,
runner up choice is fosters :-)

Blue - now that's a lot closer. Kokanee would be my preference.
Fosters...Lordy...you shoulda seen the size of the Fosters tin Paul
was served in Manhattan! The tin was so big T took it home to show her
friends.


Must have been one of those 'oil cans' That was the only way you could

get
it in the states 20 years ago (now I'm showing my age ;-) )


20 years ago in the States was the first time I had one that size too. We
must be of similar ages.


you young whippersnappers

I can remember "special events" of 20 yes ago, but not the beer,
probably because I drank Jack D. Cptn Morgan,

Odd thing is that I remember a time when it was illegal to transport
Coors east of the Mississppi River ( or so I was told at the time ) ,
and my grandfather coming home with a couple of cases after a trip to
Reno. Now if I could only remember what it tasted like.



These recent ones were 24 ounces but I have a feeling the older ones might
have been even bigger.

Never saw one like that when I was in Australia, so I don't
know what that's all about.

BTW, in Oz, I discovered that only tourists order Fosters. It's XXX or
DB there, it seems. But the Aussies make good beer.


Those liters of beer went down easy in Munich too!


A beer fest is something I've always wanted to go to but so far haven't
managed.

I also liked the 1/2 wheat beer and 1/2 lemonade.......didn't get you
hammered in the middle of the day :-)


What's wrong with getting hammered in the middle of the day then? :-)

HEY....I happen to like Bud...Only out of a bottle and at my favorite
watering hole. Bud was made to be drank out of bottle, none of this
can stuff. Papst was made to be drank out of a can.


However I do have a fondness for Bass Ale, and Negra Medello

Ugh. Bud.


(It's not really beer).............just goes to show that P.T. Barnum was
right ;-)
