Forgot to include HOF, which is actually my most frequent haunt though I buy infrequently because, as you say, the prices are not great (though is easy to put on HOF card when short of cash).

"What am I like? What R U like? Wot izzie like? "

I think it was Neneh Cherry who immortalised that phrase in dulcet cockney tones...

"I am that I am" Mr. L! :insane:

What you see is what you get - Reggaeblues! :shock: :shock:

Great to meet at last Nick, you and Dawn and 3 YO William.

Amazing to find us both new(4 years) daddies in our fifties... as Tina Turner once said:

"People think I'm getting old - I'm just getting started!" -

BTW This Abunadh you sold me(bargain!) is a fair old nightcap...

Yup. it is amazing! I have 2, Nick has one...

Really puts life into perspective. when "we" were pregnant with Jemima(how new age is that?!?) I was quite depressed for the first few months, because I was worried that I had not properly resolved my childhood dramas and traumas and might pass them on, as in "the sins of the father..." until a wise friend said to me: "The fact that you're even conscious enough to be worried about that should give you hope. Most people don't even consider it."

From then on, it was all positive!

Now I wonder, do they learn more from me, or do I learn more from them?

Well, I can see the problems with that name...at least over here. There's a brand name: Aunt Jemima. Oi!

It's likely, you'll learn more from them. At least for the 5 or 6 years. Mine are 8 and it's starting to go the other direction.

Yep I know about that! But we don't have that over here...

We have a children's story with "Jemima Puddleduck."

But she's none of these things - she really is a Jemima!

"Out of the mouths..." etc. And William's only 3!!! Ah, they learn young these days...

This from Jemima(4 last April)

At Easter she overheard her mother discussing housework with HER mother. "Mum, you know that I'm a complete slut when it comes to dusting!"

3 days later Lucie walks into pre-school to pick up Jemima, and hears her announcing to the headmistress, the other parents, children:

"My mummy's a slut!" :oops:

Derek from London!

...or Catford to be precise. Quite a sclepp to the Windsor Castle pub in Carshalton, but Derek came to a gig bless him, with his lovely wife Barbara, a cognac drinker who hates whisky ( especially that awful liquid germolene called Aaagh-dbeg)Yet she has a strange penchant for her hubbie's "christmas pudding-ey" Balblair!)

well, the landlord said it was the best gig I'd done there...so I hope you enjoyed it!

I'm very happy you came, and I enjoyed meeting you both.

And excellent entertainment you served Sir! Pleasure to meet you.

If other forum members ever get the chance catch one of Tim's sets do so. :)


PS.

I'm still working on the wife's palette, I still think there's hope for her :)

I met a couple of resident denizens on my trip north. First was our local Ardbeg crazy, lohssanami, aka Tim. Great drammin' with you and Mikey! Up in Washington I got together with Knolly from Vancouver. Thank you for the Bowmore samples. :thumbsup: Notes to come.

Met jrml (Mark) for a few drinks at the Bow Bar, not really met for the first time as we met last year. but as it was only originally supposedly for a just an half hour or so turned into about a 4 hour marathon! Also met Helen who owns the Bow Bar, she's not a member of the forum but who cares?, What a woman!
:D

Quite an overdue note but I met Wave and Willie JJ at the Bow Bar on the last night of my most recent trip to Scotland last September. Always hard to see a holiday end but sharing a few drams with new friends makes it so much easier. We enjoyed a few drams and pints. Mr.Tattie Heid was there as well. a better and more knowledgeable traveling companion is not to be found.

Cheers,
Ron

Lawrence, although I won't be going you can always meet up with Tim (Lohssanami) and Mikey (MikeyMad). There are a couple of LA guys going up as well. I'll try to get them to get in touch.

Hey Lawrence,

Yes, it'll be good to finally meet you, and there will be a couple guys from the LA Whisky Society coming up for the Fest as well. We can always meet for a small pre-fest whisky up at the room prior to getting in line.

Cheers...
