I was going to say that I hope Thunder doesn`t mind this Thread too much,but thinking about it,I`m not arsed if he does,heh heh heh.
Not sure if I`d met Thunder previously but we both got on well on first encounter at the WEEkend.
Drink is mandatory on arrival at a rally/meet-up,especially so after a long distance,but I must admit to wondering at the flashpoint of Thunder`s breath so early on in the proceedings.
I just put the varying focussing of his eyes down to tiredness,as he`d been up early and travelled far.
Teatime on Friday was currytime (delicious
) and all seemed mostly okay.
Not sure if he could see what he was eating though..........
Evidently not...nor where the plate was.....
A shout went out about somebody lying down on the driveway outside.
I wonder who that could be?
"Ishh okay........begorrarr......jushhh find my shoooooo'
I found and replaced his missing shoe,and with a helper got him back on his feet .
The tab he was running said 2 bottles of Vodka and 14 pints of Bitter but that was denounced,and only 1 bottle of Vodka was claimed.
Later on,and unbelievably,he was still vertical but seemed to be having difficulties with the concept of Sid`s new and very expensive sliding metal doors.....being equippped with rollers at the top they don`t take kindly to attempts at outward hinging......and Kenny didn`t take too kindly to the comment that Thunder was "drooling on your cap".
Despite lacking a tracksuit,Kenny showed true Scouser behaviour by taking Thunder outside to "sort him out".
Next morning,Thunder was struggling to face us all............
On reflection,he`s a top tosser and I was glad to meet him and consider him a good friend.
And after all,if you can`t get bladdered after such a long day and long ride,you`re doing something wrong.
