Round 6 appears to be about full up - and I'm trying to get away from the Evil Queen Bess - so I thought I'd just up and move the Tavern. Hope you all found your way from there: Previous Tavern

Hey, MM, I almost missed the bus! I had transportation problems this morning (Netscape kept shutting down & my modem was suffering from excessive heat & humidity!) & they made me late to work! I think you needed a caffeine hit? How's the super-machine today? Hi, Neil, nice to see you! I understand you're trying to lure MM into joining the group in the sound-proof discussion room we just added. What can I get for you? I understand there's a new rule that we have to serve non-humans of the marsupial variety now, but I'm *not* letting him use the indoor facilities, if you catch my drift. See that bush outside the back door? Please direct him over there, when he starts getting squirmy.

bbc - thanks. The miraculous-whiz-bang-wonder-all-in-one-caffiene machine seems to be doing well. (Except the expresso bean dispenser just keeps giving me capsules with the following message inside:You have overdrawn your limit at the bean bank. [signed]Counter)

Cleigh - cut it out! Stop that! *whisper/on* Oh, sorry, just to the left there...yes, I'll hold your seat. What do you mean it's too public? Go BEHIND the bloody bush! *whisper/off*

Anyone tuned into the story thread recently...It's been giving me goosebumps...or I'm into caffiene deprivation again, one or the other.

I've been watching and marvelling at the abilities of your super-duper coffee/expresso/latte/panther piss machine. Can it serve my favourite go-go juice? ... Vietnamese ice coffee? The six cups of Columbian dark i've had so far today don't seem to do satisfy my craving for a caffeine fix. And while I'm here, do yas all mind if I try out this new set of mismatched hubcaps I picked up while searching for the wire wheel cover that fell off my car last week? I'll play as quietly as the hubcaps will allow. Hey, cleigh, get off my leg and use the bush!

You may need to experiment a little--you know, push a couple of buttons at the same time, hold one down--that kind of thing, but I'm sure it will give you what you need. It's a fine machine!

Hi, glad to have the chance to stop in. It has been a hell of a day! Soon as Bob is done, I'm going to fill a demitasse about half full of sugar and fill it up the rest of the way with that dark roast stuff that just came in from Incognito. But while I'm waiting my turn, about three fingers of George Dickel's finest will do nicely. I can't stay very long. I have to get back to work. The semester is about to begin and there are piles of stuff to be done scattered all over the darn place. I have been staying late the past few nights and will be there all weekend as well. I would much rather hang around here or drive up to Annap's.

Tell me please, does that guy over there ever play any music on that thing or is he just holding onto it with the hope that its value will somehow appreciate?

Hey, there, Fadac. Good to see you! Did you want regular or something fancier? There's Bob going back to join his friends at the table, so I guess the miracle machine is free. Boy, Allan, it's tough working for a living, ain't it? Here's your drink & I'll bring the demitasse right over. Like it that way, myself. Enough sugar to make the spoon stand up. Sorry you can't join us at annap's. We'll sing one for you. Did I mention that from Monday till the 23rd, I'll be off? Yeah, family obligations down in Missouri. Hope LEJ can get coverage for me. I hate to leave you guys. Relax a little while before you head back to work, Allan. You know what they say. Take care!

Learned to drink it that way in Brazil. That's how they usually take it. (The Dickel is my own idea.) A poor man's Brazilian breakfast is a demitasse and a pozinho (don't know how the heck you make a tilde ~ go where it is supposed to go!) which is like a seven inch long loaf of French bread. That gets them through until lunch which is normally black beans and rice. Man! I'm getting hungry just thinking about it. I really loved the food there. I don't suppose you'd have any...naw I guess not.

I, too, am trying to conjure up a sonic image of an ocarina orchestra. I have seen about fifteen recorders playing at one time but this had to beat that. Do tell us more!

bbc, give Cape Girardo a wave if you get in that general neighborhood. I have never been there but it is a place I have been wanting to visit. You know how there are certain things or places that just sort of call to you? That is one of mine.

And Jasper, I don't have a clue about the guy in the corner. While ago he tuned up the Washburn and played a couple bars of Wildwood Flower. Pretty well, too. Maybe Neil knows him, since he paid for three rounds of Jim Beam neat for him.

Allan, we do have a pot of black beans with rice and peppers going in the kitchen. You want tortillas or brown bread with it?

I need about a gross of bandaids too. You ever try to rinse off a possum who didn't want to get any wetter?

I'll have to admit, that guy seems to know how to play pretty well. But I am sure I never heard Wildwood Flower played using a minor key before. Y'all have a good night. I hope I have a chance to stop in again sometime soon. G'night.

Gee, Dave, I'm sorry! I don't wanna say I told ya so, but I was afraid that 'possum was gonna get out of hand. We may have to let spaw know that Cleigh can only come if he's escorted by a human. I bet I upset him when I said he couldn't deposit his little 'possum poops there (Hear that, Art? Poops!). Guess he thought he'd get back at me. Sorry you got caught in the crossfire, so to speak. Maybe I'd better keep my voice down. You know, we have a very strong pro-'possum lobby in this area. Yeah, this fellow has friends in high places. I heard he slept in the Lincoln bedroom. Yeah, really! Let's see. I've never treated 'possum bite before. Is kat around? Maybe she or Wyo Woman can field that one.

Neil, thanks for the kind words. I try to do my job. We've got good folks here, so it's not hard. LEJ, watch that Cyber-Temp service. I hear they send out automatons. BTW, I'm not leaving till Monday; don't throw me out yet!

bbc- My worries are over! Cyber-temps is sending over a girl named Mona, who they assure me is "very experienced" and apparently works part-time as a model. When I asked if she was a hard worker, they assured me she had been a working girl since she was 16. So it looks like we'll be well taken care of.

Hmmm possum bite? seems like some of that neat whiskey would do nicely, I know, what a waste, but it'll sterilize the, um, well anyway. I'd suggest that. Say, BBC has anybody figured out the buttons on that machienn for decaf espressoo? I know, I know, what's the point, but I want that eintense coffee flavour, and I want to sleep tonight. Just went out for a big dinner, and they brought me a birthday creme brulle and it kind of put me over the edge. I can hardly belly up to the bar/computer now.

Hi Cleigh, yes, I thought you might like me. I don't drive one of those big mean cars, yes, but you can NOT have any of my espresso. It'l just make you head for the bush again. Now STOP THAT!!

Well, it is Friday the 13th after all. Yes, I did cook, with produce delivered two hours late and a batch of moldy fylo dough, but I did get two renditions of Happy Birthday over the phone, flowers, and a tiny set of pan pipes, and dinner got cooked, and I sold it all, and went out for a lovely dinner. AND cake at the mudcat Tavern, and a little singed possum and possum-tail fireworks, and well, it's been quite a day.

You get the idea. I can serve in here & still whip off those webpages. Glad you like it. We're having fun doing it. When school starts, though, I'm afraid I may not be whipping them off quite as fast. Speaking of whipping things off, would some of you gentlemen have a chat w/ my boss. I'm wondering if I should be insulted that he seems to be replacing me w/ a lady of the evening? Is he casting aspersions on my character, do you think, or expressing a preference in the kind of "help" he'd like around here? I suppose I could give my notice earlier than Labor Day, if he'd rather have Mona.

We don't get a lot of possums in these parts, mostly badgers and errant antelope (the woist kind). However, that vile black stuff has always worked for badger bites, so I"m recommending it for possum nibbles as well. And I'll have a taste for myself -- it's been such a week.

That critter over there is nothing but a Cleigh wannabee that wandered in off the street. Kick him out if he acts up! And Leej, you've got a real problem, if you're seeing catspaw when he's not even here! I think we've been mixing that punch at the bar too strong!!!

Anyway, I came by early today to drop off some of my homemade breakfast cookies. I'm taking the rest to annap's to share w/ Max & the other folks there. I hear Jeri drove down from NH last night. Won't she be surprised when she sees her tune on that new thread?! If you want the recipe for the cookies, I can probably post it on my homepage. You guys take care & have a good day!

Peter T.: Stanley Kubrick is one of my favorite directors, alongside Jim Jarmusch (sp?). Was the movie not to your liking? Please don't tell me that the final film by a director whose technique with cinematography made me always think of dancing left that bad of a taste in your mouth? That would be a solemn disappointment indeed.

Banjer, if you want a repeat performance of a poor imitation of Foshter Brooksh you'll have to wait until next Friday when I have a little help from my old drinkin' buddy Jim Beam. But you could probably lay down some righteous licks behind the rousing soliloquy from Firesign Theatre's The American Pageant: Go to the people.....Ask the hands that serve the machines of America...Ask these thousands of folks here who wouldn't say "no" to yesterday or "yes" instead of knowing it all....

bbc: coffee, please, served - how was it described in a previous post? _ "Sunday Morning" style, was it? Thank you.

And LEJ...buddy, you'd best give bbc a raise, or whatever she wants to keep her from bailing. There's not too many waitresses and servers who'd put up with the sort of clientele your tavern attracts, if you know what I mean. Forget this Mona thing. She may have talents as befitting a working girl...but I'll lay odds she won't bring homemade cookies to the Tavern on a Sunday morning, no less...that's dedication. I don't know about you, but the older I get the more it means to me to be around someone who knows her way around a kitchen rather than a bedroom.....which reminds me- stop me if you've heard this one:

Two old fishing buddies are walking down to the lake when a frog jumps out into the path.
"A wicked witch put a spell on me and if one of you will kiss me I will turn into a beautiful princess and I will fulfill every desire and fantasy you have."
The two old men thought about this for a while. Finally one turns to the other and says:
"Well, what about it? Are you going to give it a kiss?"
"No," the other replies, "at my age I think I'd get more fun out of a talking frog."

I don't know why everyone's so upset about Mona. She showed up last night for about 2 hours and did just fine. She is indeed a part time model for Clairol's Sophisticated Senior Hair Rinses. She told me that she had been a hard working girl since the age of 16 when she took a job at the cosmetics counter at Woolworth's 56 years ago. She's very sweet, in fact she reminds me of my Mom. I am having a hard time watching my language around her, though.

Mick, Just went through the fiftieth thing with my parents, 120 people on the hottest godforsaken day of the summer (we aren't USED to this in Vermont). It ended up biing a lot of fun despite some prety chaotic planning on the part of the siblings (we had very different ideas about how to organize the food, at least they all agreed that I should not cater it, and Mom had very different ideas about the guest list,) but we made it work. Good luck. Just make sure there's lots of the black vile stuff at the party (all of my family, alas, goes for pale, watered down beer. Whimps!!

Hi, guys! Just wanted to stop in to say goodnight. We had a great day at annap's. Her gazebo on the river just down a street & across the street from the Atlantic Ocean is an extremely peaceful, appealing spot. Comfortable, too! Even though it was a hot, humid day, it was very pleasant chatting, eating, & making music there. There were 9 Mudcatters there--annap, folk1234 in from Oklahoma (!), Jeri (down from New Hampshire), dick greenhaus, Susan of DT, Duane D., davidmc24, me, *AND* Max himself!!! folk1234 & Max were friends I was meeting for the first time. It was great spending time with both of them and with the others. David got some new photos, so keep your eyes open!

You're right, Neil, looks like LEJ set us up. Think he planned it from the beginning or just came up with it as things progressed? Low blow, boss! Neil, you, on the other hand, are a gentleman & an scholar! Thanks so much for your support. You can have that coffee now whatever way you like it!

The boss has been reading all about the Edinburgh Festival ( I think the Danii Minogue topless Lady Macbeth has inspired him) so he's sent over a load of Dundee marmalade flavoured jello with just a hint of Dalmore.
Try it and let us know what you think I enjoyed an evening of jazz and fireworks on Saturday. One band even provided an extra treat; as well as the regular banjo player their reeds man also played banjo so they did a duet on "Margie", what the leader called "Droolin' banjos": could he have been eavesdropping on the Mudcat?

While I was sipping my morning Metaxas and trying not to step in the possum poo I was looking at the events on the Tavern noticeboard, quite a lot of activities I see. I don't think the strip croquet league or underwater synchronised scrabble is quite my scene and the waiting lists for the jello wrestling and velcro jumping are way too long, but the All-comers Gutbarging looks just the thing that nature and over half a century of overindulgence has equipped me for. The Mudcat picture gallery seems to suggest stiff competition though, good job there are weight categories. Will it take place in the jello pool? What is the Cleigh O'Possum trophy that the winner gets? Not a gold plated possum chip I hope. Well I'll put my name down for the eliminators and see how I get on.

On the Orcarania Orchistra. Well this fellow at the Lark camp went into a 2nd hand store one day and asked, "Do you have any musical instruments?" The shop keeper said "No, but I have a box of orcarnias." So he got this box for cheep. Inside was a ton of cheep plastic orcaranas and some nice clay ones. Like a Bass, Baratone, Altos and a picialo (Please forgive my spelling Bseed, I havn't had my 6th coffee yet.)

Anyway I have to get a new keyboard for the Mac, and I'll try and do a capture of some of the video I shot. Then Perhaps one of the tunes. then maybe Max will put them someplace where you can download them and listin to this very erie sound. 6-9 orcaranas all playing more less together. I'll tell you they sounded much better when I videoed them, rather than trying to play along.

I see I'm not going to get much commission this month, very quiet in here, everybody's on holiday, so I better cut down on deliveries.
BTW next week on BBC radio ,aging indiepop, DJ John Peel, is narrating a series on 100 years of folk music. so now you know. Folk music started in 1899 when Cecil Sharp started collecting- official!
I would imagine this series will be unmissable to those of the finger in the ear'ole end of folk music
Me?I'm the kazoo, washboard and yell-out-of-tune end.
This noticeboard continues to fascinate me (if no-one else) . I never realised the Tavern hosted so many activities: no-holds barred cross-stitch; pro-celebrity quilting, Tibetan five rhythms glee club. Marching band auditions "(no kazoo players wanted), must be prepared to travel to Antipodes" ( is that near Cognito?). Barber shop quartet, Hardware shop quintet... Drink your Metaxas quietly,Roger , you're killing this thread single handed.
Must get back to the Neal Young Clinic, time for my jigsaw session, though they don't like me using a "Birmingham Screwdriver" when the pieces don't fit.

Turn on that karaoke machine... I'm feeling the need to sing "Crazy". Speakin' of invisible people and last weekend, I drove all the way to Mudstock in Columbus to meet Kat and her sister, since she said she wanted to hear Alice sing, sent me messages about where they were staying, talked up the dutch oven dinner, well.... I wandered around that campground all afternoon looking for anyone from Wyoming. They didn't show up. BTW, the event is Bluegrass, (LEEJ you failed to tell us that) and so I listened to a few people near a picnic table and tent playing bluegrass, then eventually gathered up my dripping wet son who had been playing in the river, and drove home before darkness and mosquitos set in. I had anticipated sitting around a camfire with Kat and her family, singing folk songs, but never got the chance to sing a one. I kept wondering if Kat and her crew had a car accident. I lost my parents and my aunt in a car accident in '79, so I am paranoid and worry about such things.
Anyway, Kat, dear heart, I did want to meet you, I appreciate that you have apologized for cancelling your plans without letting me know. Now, I have a huge loaf of gourmet basil-feta bread leftover. It's wonderful, have a slice with that Eddie coctail, Spaw. Me, I'll just have coffee with cream, please.

and to top off everything, I just realized I haven't had any caffiene in almost two hours! It's a wonder I haven't had a total brain melt-down...

hopefully will get a chance to pyrate my niece's computer tonight and see if mediaring works on it.

The mighty-nifty-produces-anything-with-caffiene-or-decaffienated-versions-thereof machine is self-serve, but I will be happy to get you an expresso along with my frozen waffle mocha-cappachino fudge sandwich.

yes,*he said, hanging his head in shame*, I did indeed spell "pyrate" - comes from too listening to the Pyrates Royale....
There you go...one expresso.
Basil-feta bread? Wonder how that compares to my garlic-pesto bread....

Sorry MMario. It's just that I'm aware other people often stick to different standards than myself, and I'd heard about logic and, well...

Have a Mocha Sundae Surprise. They're made with coffee ice cream, mocha syrup (with a little kalhua) and whipped cream, and coffee toffee sprinkles. The surprise is if those crunchy squished up espresso beans really were espresso beans.

I heard about logic once, tried it, nothing worked; so I went back to good old-fashioned irrationality.

Stick with the tried and true!

Good suggestion, though I think I'll make mine a MMocha surprise...

I once found some coffee buzz-buzz-buzz ice cream on my way home from a play at 11:00 pm and had a pint of it as a night-cap. Best nights sleep I've had in the last year

Hmmm, maybe I'll try to teach that coffee machine to make kahlua chocolate chip cookies. Actually I'd rather have a pinte of the black file stuff. What a week. My Dad's in the hospital He has cancer and some physical affects from that, but now his painkillers seem to be fighting with his memory and language. Hopefully they'll sort it out soon.

Say MMario, I know where that Coffee coffee buz buz buz stuff comes from. Ought to try it in a milkshake

And did I hear something about a Wednesday night shanty sing going on in that back room tonight? Thought I heard something about Cape Cod Girls, or was it Jack, the Kantankerous Cus from Cape Cod. I think I'll amble off and see. I could use some rowdy songs.

Susan

(Cap't Bob saunters in and takes two seats near the end of the bar ~ ignoring the pile of possum droppings on both of the seats) "Glad to be back after being shanghaied the last time I was in here. Yup, woke up on a garbage scow headed for New York City..........Only thing good about it was that I got to pick through all that good stuff from the dumpsters. Its amazing the good stuff that some people throw away. There war even sum pieces of a broken ceramic possum or two....most likely from Barb's scrap pile. Who would do a thing like that to me anyway? With with folks like Spaw, Mick, and Cleigh O'Possum around, its hard to tell which one of them pull such a mean trick on a nice feller like me."

"I need something heavy, give me a double pine float, no plastic toothpicks this time ~~~ I want real wood....and make that with two ice cubes. This diet thing is going to be the ruin of me."

How about a little song?

'I've got to give up coffee, if you know what I mean'
~~~I've got to stop grinding up the old coffee bean...
I have to start drinking something else that won't make me fat.
I'll have to give up coffee, and I know that.

I had some cappachino on my way to work today
~~~You see I needed something that would help me on my way,
And a thromis full of columbia to drink while drving in my car,

Mornin' each. Why is there chicken wire round my stool in the corner? To keep the possums off? No?
To protect me from flying missiles? Oh, was I singing again? AND telling bad jokes? Sorry! But when Mick says "Everybody sing" I thought that included me.
I think I'm allergic to possums, wake up with memory loss, sore throat, mysterious bruises.
Perhaps I'm being mistreated by the staff in the Munchhausen Ward at the Neil Young Center.
Nothing to do with falling over the garbage cans on the way out in the early hours? It wasn't my fault I was trying to chase off the possums,particularly that pink one and the dayglo orange one. They were eating chocolate chip cookies on the lids of the cans, didn't anyone else see them? Must get the Center to adjst my medication. In the meantime a large one please while I watch the tango demonstration. Or is it gutbarging? Difficult to tell,Bob ought to stick to the hornpipe.

...it was a quiet morning in the Tavern. Start a tab for the 'catters who fell for my Ten Little Possums bait, I'll settle up on Monday after my weekend session at the PYC:(sigh) shuffleboard and group therapy. Say, why didn't anyone tell me this parrot Cap'n Bob brought back doesn't talk? I've been sitting here all morning trying to teach it to sing the fourth verse of Wild Mountain Thyme or say "My friend will pay for the drinks" in all known languages and I haven't got a squalk outta him. Stuffed? I wondered why it didn't react when the possums ate the beernuts I'd put in his perch dish. Well I'll slip away, I think the SPCA are about to come to look into the possum blowing and fish whacking allegations. Plead insanity, guys (there IS a sanity clause) and I'll see you in the PYC. I'm in the Munchausen wing with the picture of Louis Armstrong on the locker. Just fill this Lucozade bottle with Metaxas' finest for me before I go. Don't bring grapes (unless trodden and fermented). Tara each.

Sure, Mick, lets do him a tune. Susan, what would he like? MY da likes things like "South of the Border" and "Isle of Capri" and a bunch of old hymns..."Lower Lights", Church in the Wildwood, like that. Music often makes a bridge for people in the hospital that are having trouble connecting.
Blessings,

Hmmm, Dad was doing a pretty goo djob on Green and Yellow (or Henry My Son ) the other night. He's also rather fond of tom Lehrer, so Posioning Pidgeons in the Park would go over nicely. Thank God he has a sense of humor, even when he doesn't have much sense. He'd like this place, I think (unless he sat in the possum droppings.) thanks all.
