Date: 24 Mar 00 - 05:28 PM

In the nearby glen the Morris Dancers are practicing, the redwing blackbirds are staking out new territory, and the sun is peeking out to see if all is ready. Perhaps it is time to clean out the Mudcat Tavern from the winter blahs, and prepare it for a frolicksome springtime. Well, let us get our little pail of water and our brushes, and quietly open the door to our friendly little home away from home.....
AAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!

well, not too bad considering.... Anyone for a drink before we roll up the old sleevaroonies?
yours, Peter T.

Hey, Spaw! Come help me clean up all the litter we kicked up out back in the garden, willya? There, now, look at these gorgeous daffodils I found. Mmmmmm, they smell SO good and look so cheerful. Plenty of 'em...let's see, I'll put some in this old Guinness bottle over here on the bar, some back there behind it against the mirror, oh, yeah, and the ladies room, too. You gents want any posies in your water closet?

Keep the windows open and let's get some of that fresh air and sunshine in here. Nice breeze that...I can just smell the salt on the air. Anyone know if the Mudcat ship/sloop/barque(?) is coming in soon? Won't they be surprised!?

PeterT, don't you have a birthday sometime soon? I know Shambles does.

Oh this is looking lovely. Now, Spaw, don't forget..the Prom is tomorrow night and nobody is gonna notice that we're old enough to be chaperones! We are dancing, darlin' and we can start practising right here! C'mon everybody, dig into the eats, then work it off with a rollicking dance!

Chanter, nothing. for this job, you need a full set of pipes. Only difference is, instead of blowing, you suck. Three tubes all cleaning at once - or four, if you can keep your fingers on the chanter holes. Keep sucking, Mbo, and we'll soon have this place cleaned up. Who needs an electric vacuum cleaner ???

LEJ pulls up with a load of lumber on the trailer behind his Four-Runner Alright then! I've been talking about adding this deck for outdoor dining pleasure, and by golly I am ready to start! I'll need some help on these post holes... and if any of you are handy with a hammer and a circular saw, sign up here. I got Cedar because I love the way it smells when you cut it, and when the sun warms it after a Spring rain. But before we start.. just one Monopolowa Vodka and Seven Up, please!

Now, if you'll notice those six empty beer cans...NO DON'T PICK EM UP!...those are the spots for the postholes. We'll need them 24 inches deep, and about 10 inches in diameter. I'll let you start while I finish this... oh, it's gone. One more, bartender, if you please.

Mbo darlin',

My step-daughter had a whole HS basketball team devoted to her one year. (No leering please, it was just sweet.) Wherever she went, they went. It was so cute. None of them would let any of the others hit on her. She felt totally loved and never pressured-- she just was the sweetheart of the team. That's what I wish for you, Mbo-- a whole gaggle of gal pals. With Ms. Barky the captain.

I don't actually think that's what Meebo has in mind...what the hell do I know.

Cedar is clearly the best choice for any deck and I've built lots of them. I'm burning cedar slab under a panful of sap right now. Gotta go fire it again. This syruping business is getting pretty old, week 4 or thereabouts--this weekend'll be it fer me.

But for cutting metal (other than nails) I much prefer a metal-cutting wheel in an old skilsaw to shaking my brains out with a sawzall. Might as well use a chainsaw...

Ssprig cleaning, sorry but all I know is how to stay out of the way of it and take stuff to the dump...

Spew, I mean Spaw, you're not drinking that stuff are you? No, man, that's what we use to seal the deck! Here, have one of these Falls Citys.

Well, Mbo, you are quite the lad. Look at those fine postholes! All uniform (well, except the hole I used the C-4 on...I'll need a much longer post for that one...is that oil down in there?) Now, Davey Lad, you man the saw and cut me two 4x4x36" for the joist centers, and four 4x4x68' for the corner posts and rail supports. And wear a mask...that stuff's treated with Wiedemann's Beer for weather resistance, and is highly toxic to most humans except Catspaw.

Now, one more small Vodka Seven and...WOOOPS. Hey Willie-o gimme a hand up outta this posthole...

Upsy daisy Leej. Considered putting on some weight?

Ever tried one of those two-person posthole digging augers? They're fun as long as you're the one with the throttle control--when your partner goes spinning off into the distance, you've hit a rock and its time to ease off on the throttle.

Now what's this about Weedman's Beer?

Maybe I just don't think big enough, but sixty-eight feet seems a tad excessive for corner posts...forty feet would be plenty. You from Texas er sumthin?

I missed the prom announcement. When is it, where is it, and do I have to have a date or can I come trolling for likely suspects? I'm thinking of resurrecting the bubblewrap gown ... which, of course, could pose problems if, say, Catspaw were to try to pin a corsage on it. Someone might start writing dispatches from the front...

Skunky beer? Have to be the case of "Lucky Lager" we found when remodeling the barn. "Grampa's Stash of Nasty" we called it, and damn fine carpenter lubricant too!

I'll back the truck 'round with the quick-dry. Try filling those post-holes with jello and we'll ALL learn a new dance step come party time.

Allright....level and chalk-line ready to go. Promise not to bend any nails and I'll owe ya a dance.

Prom? Neat! Now I just need a dress and a date. (Actually, I'm going prom dress shopping in the physical world today.)
Any of you guys know how to swing? I can teach, if not. If we're going to try any aerials, though, I need someone pretty tall and strong. (I'm not overweight, but I'm 5'10"...not exactly a lightweight.) I can also teach waltz, samba, cha-cha, and a bit of salsa and mambo. I love dancing!
The Mudcat Prom should definitely have better music than the one I went to last year...way to much hip-hop. (Hmmm...Mudcat Prom...sounds like the name of the next thread, once this one gets filled up.)

I also have to remember never to wear him in the kitchen because he has a panic reaction to large pots of boiling water. You'll notice he only has one claw.. that's because a lobster like this is way too good to eat all at once.

I'm afraid to actually start the Sock Hop Proper. The last time I actually went to a prom, my boyfriend broke up with me the week before the prom, started going steady with a girl I loathed, forcing me to accept my brother-in-law's little brother as my date. He started drinking by the time we pulled out of my parents' driveway, threw up on my dyed-to-match shoes after the second song and I actually was home before midnight the night of my senior prom. Ugh.

The only triumph in all this is that, when I went back for my high school reunion summer before last, I looked MUCH better than she does.

I think I'll join Michael K. in the corner and cleverly disguise myself behind a pair of dark glasses, looking urbane and sophisticated, pretending I'm really above all this nonsense. Maybe we'll wait 'til the band takes a break, stage a bloodless coup and take over the bandstand. Want to play me some Ella standards, Michael?

I hope to all heavens he went to bed. And I can't stay at the Prom any longer, just found out another friend has taken the railway home.........and her name is that of her sister in law who is one of our best friends......always happens on Prom nite, no? Nite all, I'm gonna go to sleep now, and pray for all those still out, or who may be out on Prom Nite in a few weeks. Sorry to put a dampper on the festivities, but at least Mbo made it There and Back Again! Love, Sorcha

LEJ taps microphone, clears throat Uhhh..Welcome everybody to Mudcat's Prom. If you didn't know, the theme this year is " A Magic Night in Old Venice", and I'd like all of us to give a big hand to the prom committee who spent all afternoon digging these elaborate canals you see all around the dance floor. Applause Oh, somebody throw Catspaw a rope, he fell out of his gondola...In just a minute our band, The Skip Biederbeck Quintet, will play Smokey and the Miracle's You Can Depend on Me and we'll have the spotlight dance and voting for the Prom King and Queen! In the meantime, check out the punch...I think Wyo hit it with a fifth of Everclear!

Oh...and if anyone has seen my lobster, please report to the bandstand. He's got, er, something that belongs to me.

I guess if you're going to name the K&Q of the prom anytime soon you'll have slim pickings there, LEJ-- seems like attendance is a bit low just now... but if you'll wait til later Hardiman and I might be back to show you all the Schmielzo Polka.... I'm off to the car for a geezer nap, cuz when Hardiman and me dance, we dance hard-- gotta rest up!

This isn't one a them early-endin' Proms now is it? We can go to those in the 3D world!

Just got here. The place is mess. Looks like it could use a good Spring Cleaning. No signs of life except for a lobster running around the parking lot with a leftover hors d'oeuvre. And what's with all the concrete blocks?

And why does Catspaw keep pinning and pinning and pinning my corsage on me? He's so fastidious. Wants that flower to be in just the right place, I suppose.

And anyway, I think it was Kat who fell off 'Spaw's, um, gondola....

Someone who has better Blues Cliquey Thing skills than I do should start a fresh thread for the Prom. People see "Spring Cleaning" and it doesn't precisely sound like much of a party...

But, the sun just came out and I'm going to go ride my bike for a while. Here. I'll just stash this bubblewrap over here in the corner and ... What? HEY, YOU try cycling nekkid. It's much harder than it looks...
