There's still time for a Spanish adventure! Pencil it in for 2022.
Thanks for the kind words, from both of us.

And I want to say how much I appreciate Martin's hospitality on my two visits to Ireland. On my second visit to Ireland in May, 2012, Martin took me birdwatching on Galway Bay, and then we went to a singing session in Kinvarra, and then we had a barbecue with the renowned Josephine. It was delightful. I've often wished that I could go to Spain with Martin to teach English, but that didn't happen. Whatever the case, I can't say how much I appreciate Martin and Josephine and the friendship they have shown to me through the years.
Martin and Josephine, may you survive another 20 years of marriage and song, and then some.

Comhghairdeas!

I guessed the answer the first time "Liam's brother" published 2 verses of "A NEW BALLAD CALLED 'JOSEPHINE'S DOWNFALL'" but then I knew that Martin Ryan was marrying/ is married to a "Josephine". I still don't know whether Dan Milner has a brother named "Liam".

Are Martin and Josephine not hosting a singaround to celebrate? (I know singers who hosted birthday events on Zoom this year).

Thanks Folks,

Everybody did a fine job guessing the identity of Man #2. Maggie's gonna kill me for letting the cat out of the bag, but she'll get over it. Now about that pole Naemanson. Where do you think woodpeckers go on their honeymoon? You better give me a hand removing all those rocks. Somethings in life just can't wait!

Martin!,
Congratu-feckin-lations!
I thought you were married at least 3 or 4 times already with 12 or 14 children to your name.
And sure even if you are - another one won't kill you.

It's a bit of a bummer joining the thread so late and missing all the fun though.

Anyway I'm delighted for you Martin. Will there be a few songs at the ceremony and reception? Will there what.

There's an idea - maybe we should pick a few appropriate songs for the occasion.
How about - ""Sweet Boney, will I e'er seee you more?"

Did you know there's a new Firesign Theater compilation out? Not all the old stuff, but a lot...

Now we will learn three words in Turkish: towel, delight, may I see your passport please?

Now it's time to play, Name That Disease!

The compilation is called, "Shoes For Industry; Shoes For the Dead", I think....

I CAN'T reveal the name directly. I have been forbidden to do so. He is waiting for someone to guess and write out the name. If I say his name he could do all sorts of nasty things. Once one of you (Carol) guesses correctly he will reveal himself... uh, in a nice way.

I'd like to point out that I figured out it was Martin Ryan a while back...so there. Martin, I still don't get the "choughed" bit - didn't make any sense. I've heard "chuffed," but not "choughed." Maybe it's an Irish thang... (Unless it's pronounced like "showed," which is basically the same as the French "chaud," which means "hot," and you were confirming my guess...or maybe not.)

So Naemanson, it's a guy named Woody who operates a crane at the Bath Iron Works? Guess I don't know him.

Well, maybe I should have said it was one of those selected shorts played at the beginning of a movie. I noticed recently they have gone back to showing the selected shorts again. Only now they call them commercials.

Yes, GNU spilled the beans. WooDY is the clue. Anyone want to take a shot at it?

The funny thing is that today we had to write a contract for replacing a telephone pole because of damage by, you guessed it, a pileated woodpecker. S/He dug a lovely deep nest in the pole essentially hollowing out the poe and weakening it. The base sent someone out to fill the hole with rocks and we'll replace the pole this week.

I see in the Coping With Women thread that the key to a good marriage is to shower every day. Woodpeckers don't shower. They take a bath.... BATH.

Yup, them WOODPECKERS must have IRON heads for all those WORKS they do way up there in their crows nests with the CRANES in BATH.

So, does this constitute announcing the banns of marriage? You put one addtional verse in the church bulletin each Sunday. When the congregation guesses who the bride and groom are, then they can get married...
