Old Lady is giggling at the cheeky bat.
Now who's going to have a second helping of rhubarb crumble? More cream anyone?
The Mapouka has been deferred until another day, because Old Lady is chock full of crumpets and crumble, and can hardly move. African Man heaves a huge sigh of relief.

African Man is fighting fit again, as his knee is back to normal.
He gives the bat a gentle stroke, then gets on with his work behind the bar serving up different foods and drinks.
Old Lady is making rhubarb crumble for everyone, with double cream.
(very slimming) She has been picking rhubarb all afternoon and it's delicious.
Sam the Skull is dozing on a sofa. One of his eyes is now blind (cataract) and he looks a scraggy old thing. But he keeps smiling and purring. Old Lady is making sure he doesn't bite the bat.
Please could we have some music from the Tavern clientele? Old Lady is itching to dance the Mapouka (African Man groans softly)

Old Lady helps African Man along to a sofa (he's strained his knee while painting the corridor walls of the school, and splodged paint all over his cleaner's uniform too) and hurriedly crams lots of crumpets into the giant toaster for when Tatty Bogle wakes up.
African Man invites the bat to sit beside him and to warm his sore knee muscles at the same time. Old Lady is opening pack after pack of butter for the crumpets.
The Squidlets are starting to sing; they form a lovely little choir.
"Knee'll Meet Again" ??

TB returns after nearly two weeks of trying out everyone's Zoom rooms, (now that IS promiscuous), and sampling all the single malts. She rolls back in for some downtime, singing "Leave us our Glens", somewhat out of tune, and narrowly missing a squirm of squidlets lying on the floor and a big bat flying overhead. She slumps on the sofa and tucks into a pile of crumpets before nodding off and snoring loudly.

The Black Belt Caterpillar Wrestler is collected from the beach by Igor.

Apparently part of the Roland Emmet railway layout that he was so taken by, having remembered seeing it in a Cheltenham department store when he was very little, has just been featured on the BBC program “The Repair Shop”. He is delighted that part of the display has survived and restored to running order.

He and Igor head off to the model railway room to run the replica there.

Severn, Ada, Nyna and Tennyson Clark arrive with their vertical smiles...

Meanwhile the bat is back at the Ringworld beach scarfing the neck of the lamb, wearing shades and hanging upside-down from a sunny-side up palm frond (with no egg on their face).

The smallest squidlet is farting bubbles in the tide-pool. Those nearby are fit to be tied. Most everybody else is just unfit.

The crowd at the bar is no longer three-deep, but too many of its members are lawyers for the ballerinas to be able to kick up their heels in the style to which we'd all like to become accustomed.

The musicians are fading, especially the ghost of Ed McCurdy, whose rich and almost furry baritone has lost its pear-shaped tones thanks to singing with a trio. The harpist is still going on and on, though.

The African Man uses his marvelous feet to bring the bat another hot whiskey, walking out in his tie-dyed socks onto the hot, hot beach. A strand of his wild hair blows in the zephyr over the ivory sands of the coast as he turns back, just in time for the empty glass, slipping from the bat's greasy claws, to miss him by millimeters. The sand may be hot but it's soft, so only the fall is broken, not the glass. After all, it isn't autumn on *this* beach.

It may be easy to fool some people but hot whiskey is not served in a mug...

The bat, after a refreshing and cleansing dip in the surf, flutters back indoors, squeaking for crudités. Yo Yo Ma told Boutros Boutros Ghali that the couscous was so-so, but it was actually truly scrumptious, which causes Dick van Dyke to show up in some kind of noisy contraption on wheels. The gulls take exception as their colony moves through the sky above the island, dancing an arial avian scottische. A red-headed mermaid sings just beautifully along with the tooralooras, gracefully dodging the gull guano.

What a lovely and promiscuous time is being had by all!

After a wonderful set ranging from classic Folksongs game and ribald, Ed's ghost sits at a table with Severn, who owned quite a few of his recordings, and listens to Severn tell of his own dream about Ed's classic "Last Night I Had the Strangest Dream", where one of the gathered World Leaders, possibly from Andorra, looked at the mess in the streets and asked who was going to clean it all up. There was much denial from all sides, resulting in loud arguments and a few cases of fisticuffs, until finally some folks stepped up ?and signed papers taking responsibility for at least parts of the cleanup and all went home

The poor people who lacked clothing quickly grabbed up some of the uniforms left over from the soldiers who chose to March home in their skivvies and the odd gun or two.

In the middle of the night, fleece of white trucks pulled up. Some had diplomatic plates with newly painted sides saying thing things like "Ivan's Scrap Metal", "Abdul's Salvage" , "Feng Fu's Foundry" and "Kwame's Iron Works with large crews of men filling the trucks up to the brim. Most of the plain white unmarked truck had U.S. Government plates, most, likely traceable to the CIA and it looked like there were a few independent contractors there whose trucks said "Captain Curt's Collectables", "Simon's Surplus", "Ghetto Gary's Thrifts & Gifts" and such.

The next morning, another fleet of trucks that had official signed papers for them to take care of the cleanup and were surprised to find, other than the odd torn or outsized scraps of uniform.nothing but untold thousands of drums.....

"Where am I supposed to take all these Damn drums?"
A man in a straw hat and a sersuck sports coat steps up and says, " Excuse me sir, my name is Professor Harold Hill.... "

In six months,the guns have been relocated elsewhere, the trucks have been repainted and the world was back as it was, except a few arms dealers are even richer than ever..

"Pretty impressive," Ed told Severn, " but as you see, I'm dead, so the song is all yours to write. Remember, the melody is protected for my surviving family, so that part you will have to tweak slightly yourself. "

Time for my next set! I gotta go...Any requests? "

'The Trinity Cake'

"You've got it! Wow! That goes back....."

Semimodo and Les the Lawn Moor soon decide that the enormous white cotton potato sack-like bloomers are probably those of Old Lady. They need four clothes pegs to secure them to the line, and could serve as a tent for the homeless.
The greedy little bat starts to snore loudly, being full to the brim with food. Old Lady pops a woolly blanket over it.
Everybody is dozing off for a little siesta after their activities.
Later in the evening the music will start, and lovely traditional songs will be sung.

The bat flies into the kitchen, where the flies bat the cooks. What is the deliciousness I smell? Someone opens a window onto the Ringworld beach. It's the mechoooouuuuiiiii! And the bat, seizing 16 pairs of French sunglasses, whirls out and starts pulling pieces of lamb onto a banana leaf, scoops some juice onto the couscous, and finds a pouffy anemone-looking beanbag in the shallows to gorge. Drips rinse right off that way.
After a short digestive nap, the bat crawls in that weird not-flying bat locomotory fashion over to the clambake pit, gathering a large quantity of melted butter within the cone they made out if the banana leaf they'd licked clean, plus a wingful of clams and three cobs of corn, and settles back on their pouffy beanbag to overeat some more...
A kind Old Lady settles nearby, dipping crumpets into the excessive amounts of melted butter in the leaf-cone stuck into the sand.
An even kinder bird with slightly singed feathers pelts the bat with forgotten lemon wedges, and carefully places a nice little StJacques' shell of mignonette between bat and lady...

What is for dessert? wonders the overstuffed beanbag-sitter, rolling off and into the sea for a refreshing, cleaning, and crudités-less dip. Sure hope it's got chocolate in it. And where is that white widow?

Semimodo, the hunchback in the bell tower calls down to Les The Lawn Moor who guards the front entrance to catch the end of rope he is throwing down and tie it part way up the flagpole. He lowers down a long clothesline with all manner of clothing attached with wooden clothes pins. He attaches the other end in the tower the garments wet and dry flutter in the breeze. The mystery of where the birds deposited the stolen goods is solved.It got so the hunchback could hardy move, much less ring a bell up there. Les aided by his binoculars, and looks at all the underwear, some with inscriptions and some with fancy designs and he and Semimodo make bets on which ones belong to whom.....

Channelling my inner Matt McGinn.

ON YOUR BIKE
(AGAIN)

The Norman Tebbit special
was still in the Bike Shed,
so I went back to work in England
just like Boris said.

I pedalled fast and furious
down roads all marked South,
maintaining social distancing
hardly opening my mouth.

I reached the Sawmill in Manchester
but never got past the door.
They said that I'd been sacked
over forty years before.

My mood darkened further,
I found my tyres were flat.
The bosses shouted, "Stay Alert,

Smiling African Man has grown his woolly white beard considerably, not to mention his literally 'afro' hair, and says he'll hardly feel the cold in merely his underwear. But Old Lady is tutting loudly, and has A Plan.
She sends for Sam The Skull, who brings his housemates along too, and they hunt assiduously for the missing clothes, having been promised a reward of delicious cooked chicken slices and a large bowl of milk. They are also instructed to keep Billy the Squid and the other very naughty mischief-makers under their eye, and order is restored.
"This is a bit like a classroom..." mutters Old Lady. "Er...wait........"

They look around for other pranks to be played.

Meanwhile, the fate of the missing clothing remains unknown.....

Fortunately the parliament of owls has pursued the other birds and recovered all the clothes.

And Old Lady has some fruit scones just coming out of the oven.

In the sea, African Man is paddling tentatively up to his knees (he cannot swim) but Old Lady plunges in. (She floats like a cork)
Unfortunately, the mischief of magpies has seized the clothes lying on the beach. Helped by a flotilla of very naughty swans, they fly away.

The bat and the big African, with the help of all those bloody birds, are digging pits on the Ringworld beach. One will be for the old New England-style clambake, corn on the cob and so on. One will be for the whole lamb stuffed with couscous mechoui. Will we need more? The birds will turn the spit, without the smell of singeing feathers, but with the sound of singing.
At least it gets the birds out of the Tavern for a while. Except for the parliament, as the nocturnal owls are wisely staying at the bar, and the penguins, whose huddle in the walk-in freezer plaintively requests mojitos. The bat, whenever the light is too much at the beach (not to mention the pit digging) but who can hear them plainly, fetches them their drinks, then brings buttered crumpets back for the pit diggers.
Now everyone is buttered, and sandy, and (if mammalian) sweaty, so we have to go swim a bit.
A pile of large clothes are, or is, left on the beach...

If ye didnae hae yer feet in yer wellies!

Wellies they are wunderful
Wellies they are swell
They keep out the watter
And they keep in the smell
When your sittin in a room
You can ayeways tell
When some B***r takes aff their wellies.

Chorus

When ye're oot walking in the country with a bird
And your strolling about the fields, like a fermer's herd
And someb'dy shouts"Keep aff The grass"
And you think how absurd
Squelch you'll find why fermers wear wellies.

A congress, a parliament and a party create a pandemonium in a congregation. The bat objects strenuously, being without its cloud. Flush the battery! quarrels the committee. The bat, in foul disgust, stops reading collective avian terminology before a murder is committed. Even one with exaltation would be a wrench, chimes a wisp of unkindness.

But just then there is a loud crash...

All the songs about pandemic I heard in the tavern were morbid or profane. Suddenly STEEL DRUMS pick up my spirit with zippy calypso beat and a tune we all already know.
You know, the one sung by a red crab. Finally I hear A Happy pandemic tune
Under the sea:

The sickest are always greener

You dream about going 'up' there
But that is a big mistake
Just look at the world around you
Right here at blue heaven's gate
Such wonderful things surround you
What is your ultimate fate?

In Quarantine

Down with a fever
Take it from me

Up in Montana they work all day
In the meat plants they slave away
The Navy's devotin'
No Hospital boatin'

Out there all the folks is happy
Like hot dogs snug in their roll
The old in a home ain't happy
They sad 'cause they got a cold
But folks on the phone are lucky
on a cruise you have a worser fate
One day everyones sickly
eatin off the same ol' plates

The diff between Walt Disney and a Scotsman is that the Scotsman wears a kilt, but Walt disnae, squeaks the bat in an awful fake burr, dripping crumpet butter and scattering crumbs. Loud opprobrium from all the Africans, be they pretty or ladies, or both, or neither, as well as from everyone else, chases the grinning bat back into the rafters. The bartenders are thinking of cutting them off (the bat, not the Africans).

The frown on Old Lady's face was merely due to a touch of indigestion (far too many crumpets!) and she begs TB to sing the Wellies song right through, so she can join in, using her best Glasgae accent. African Man hasn't a clue what it all means, but he's heard the song many many times on Youtube (Old Lady has a habit of playing it over and over) so he does his best to sing along.
TB's attempt at the Mapouka is mind-blowing. Loud applause from all the pretty African ladies.

Oh dear, late to the party again! "In comes I" says the tardy Tattie Bogle, then launches into "If it wasnae for your wellies". Old Lady frowns, so TB switches to singing "California Girls". One of the bats has hitched a ride on her shoulder, but soon flies off when he hears the concertina and pipes. Tattie settles down to a very large crumpet drenched in butter, which gives her enough energy to try the Mapouka with African ladies. She then re-arranges all the sunbeds to be exactly 2.0000000000 metres apart, before taking off her wellies and sprawling full length on one.
