Quick Update

I spend the evening mostly at the local waterhole, the Mogwash Arms. The locals were a bit, well reluctant in the beginning, but in the course of the evening it became pretty entertaining. A man called Sebastian insisted on a kind of ABBA-sing-along. I think he is also a member of the local teabagging-society. I may have gotten this wrong, but it could be related to the Teebeutelweitwurf of Eastern Frisia. Always astounding what survives in remote regions, maybe there is something to the romantische Kontinuitätsprämisse I just did not get.
The ice was broken and there were some charades or pantomimes. Especially impressive was a kangaroo that lost its tail, the crowd went wild and everybody wanted to touch this strange object. I tried to record the incantations, but somehow my trusted phone would not work.
When order was restored I found myself at the table  with a Canadian lady, who showed impressive drinking abilities. She introduced herself as “Mistress NK” and was in the company of some colourful characters, fellow diggers perhaps ?
I remember that there was talk about something like bond & bail and a tall gentleman from Texas insisted that I carry lots of gay coloured bracelets as a precaution, so be it, if they do not cumber with the digging.
I learned a new word – toodlepipski – travelling educates – and then went back to this idyllic guesthouse of Mr. Bates (free wifi), humming ABBA’s greasiest hits.
Ah, the Mogwash parking lot is my oyster !
Toodlepipski y’all, as The Lady said.

  1. Well saied, LX !

    I only hope there are no videos on youtube already dear Norma. I vaguely remember that people flocked to the village green.

    Skippy was remarkably petite, I think I saw a reddish glimmer, Mel Lloyd

    There hang a lot of artsy types around in Mogwash, and they seem to cultivate a Campari fixation. I’m right behind schedule with the excavation, I will keep you updated if I find something interesting there, dear Scarlet. Your pose seems vaguely familiar, as if I’d seen you before …

    You are, Mistress MJ !

  2. Oh no! Ms Scarlet’s posts have already given me horrible migraines lately and now yours… I’m losing all sense of reality and I fear I’ll have nightmares for the next few nights. No thanks to you! Pooh!
