Thread: Permission to join the party

    Default Permission to join the party

    You are all cordially invited to join me at my usual spot, at the bar propped up by the aspidistra, as I seem to have gained a pip. For what I know not perhaps it fell out of the same lucky bag that Maverick had the other day.

    Chocks away, full speed ahead and down the torpedoes, I mean damn the torpedoes, oh sod it fill me up barman and keep em comming until me bar bill is exceedingly indecently over spent.

    See you on the Dark Side......

    The extra pip looks good on you. If only we had eyes to see it. Perhaps, after the hang-over...

    Congratulations Colonel Skafloc Sir!

    Seems a small reward for all the vast number of files, posts and laughs you have brought to the Forum.

    I'll have my usual Brandy, if you please!

    Oh, and one for the Aspidistra, she's getting rather fond of them................

    A bit late to the party - is there anything left?! Congratulations, Neil - Pillars of Hercules might be more appropriate, given the 10K thing and all....
