Putting out the Fires


It is the time of year to get all the kit ready for the next fire season. So today we had a look at some 'displayed' for us. Glass in hand, we are on the Patio in the sunshine. Salute heroic flyers.

    1. Oh yes. Very big. We have masses of water but do we have an aircraft? Not a sign of one. Our Government here is too busy funding an 'Office for Women'. That lot don't put out fires either.

Our Bouncer is a gentleman of muscle and guile. His patience has limits. He will check you at the door.

The Tavern gets rowdy visitors from time to time. Some are brain dead and some soul dead. They attack customers and the bar staff and piss on the carpets. Those people will not be allowed in anymore. So... Be Nice..
